So this is a bit of a long set up to an epic story of sorts.
The Hand wiped out my storage so i sent a group to take out lvl2 lion, my 2nd best led the team (axe master, i highly recommend). with my 3rd best named Topknot whip specialist not much armor but somehow through his journeys hes got plus 3 evasion +1 strength and +1 luck. and my new 4th best Rabbit my almost sword specialist who got the kingsman's magic genital destroying pants and a steel sword, who also ended up with one arm from the fight. shes got nothing really special working for her besides timeless eyes fighting art Team sounds decent with just the 3 of them so i decided to send one of the new born twins who goes by the name of Moose, I give him my top fighteres gear full screaming armor with finger of the god spear. So lvl 2 lion goes down no real hiccups i got a lot of resources from the hunt and the showdown, able to make my #2 full set of leather armor, and make woopie at the settlement.
through said woopie Gingersnap (my wife who is a sideline observer occasionally named her) was born, she gets +1 accuracy, strength and evasion from clan of death. cool shes going to do well in this world. Heres where i think i got a little crazy.
My top two fighters only have 2-3 fights till retirement due to some onoe on one with a past phoenix. so i want to save them for when things get hairy. No reason to send them on resource runs they can relax at the settlement. Right?
So i send Topknot, Rabbit, Moose and gingersnap off to fight a lvl 2 phoenix. thought it would be challenging but shouldnt be a problem. gingersnaps got full leather with a sonic tomahawk and everyone has axe specialist now, rabbit steel sword all rawhide armor, top knot skullhelm, lion headress, cat eye circlet, lion boots, phoneix plackart and hunter whip. Moose all screaming finger of god and everyone has spear specialist. I figured good solid team no trouble.
hunt goes on for a while.... I mean a long while, wind tunnel move back two long.
rolled 100 on hunt, got steel shield for rabbit thats great for a 1 armed sword woman to have right, most of the team at this point have at least 2 heavy injuries filled in when we finally get to the phoenix. I think ok ive been in worst situations, I will just hit him fast and hard and it'll all work out. well with all the negative tokens and what not surprised i did as well.
So phoenix has maybe half its AI down, and im in a panic the razor wind has really messed everyone up, I had topknot running to far side of map just to try and stay alive he had 4 bleed tokens and -2 accuracy, everyone else had 2-3.
And thats when i said you know weve gotten some crits we got some stuff from the hunt, lets flip to that page weve never seen and try to run away.... rolled a 2 place yourself adjacent to the monster and knocked down, oh thats where the other 3 are and they are also knocked down all in a perfect line.
so i exhale deeply saying ok its the phonenix's turn with his last AI card before i have to reshuffle its going to be my first TPK. draw the card and i almost jumped up, crying and laughing at the same time. I drew
Life pattern, phonix totally healed, all his negative tokens i criticaled on to him are gone.... but all survivors are mysteriously affected, i got survival again, ive got insanty, my injuries are gone, my armor is back, rabbits got her dang arm back, no more disorders and every single bleeding token is gone.
Its a fresh start, and i am so excited to finish but i have to wait because the kids are awake and my son likes to try to yank cards and such.
I am sorry that was really long and probally pointless, but i wanted to share. Damn i love this game.

That Sir is epic.
My favorite/worst moment happened this evening. Squaring off against a Lvl 2 Kingsman. I'm sort of excited because I've got a group of relative sacrifices kitted out. Full leather plus shield zambato and frenzy drink on one guy with a few insanity. I think I'm going to at least stand a chance. First AI card is where he reveals his face. The guy who's all kitted out straight up dies from the brain trauma...... First turn never even got to attack. It went rapidly downhill from there resulting in a TPK. On the plus side I got 8 endeavors.

Phoenix did some amazing things for me today too when my group finally faced him.
First my Survivor who was pretty far down the Hunt XP bar and had a good amount of disorders, got the event losing all my hunt XP and Disorders, but I kept all tokens. So that was golden.
Then said survivor Crits the phoenix in the location that messes with two of his cards. Suffice to say the Phoenix kept knocking itself over when It tried to materialize.
Still a scarier fight than a level 2 lion IMO.
