The Delve Quest is designed to simulate a full campaign in a shorter period of time. As it's written it's actually a bit broken, and FFG has said they will be releasing some errata to fix/improve it.ok...that's how we set it up...thanks again
However, since you asked, the actual setup of the quest state that you take 3 random Tier 1 locations and shuffle them together. Then you take 3 random Tier II locations and place them UNDER the shuffled Tier I locations. Then you take 2 random Tier III locations and place them at the bottom of the deck. That means as you travel from location you will hit the Tier I locations first, followed by the Tier II locations next, and finally hit the Tier III locations.
Whenever you travel from the last (3rd) Tier I location follow all the instructions listed on the Delve Quest Scenario Card. Do the same think when you travel from the last (3rd) Tier II location. This simulates the Settlement Phase from the campaign game.
