We've played about 12 scenarios, and are pushing towards level five but have only seen six prosperity increases. Bad luck or is this on par with what others are seeing?

I think three of those are from scenarios, and the rest are from events or other tasks.

Yep, same thing we're seeing. Since the the game is really about the city of Gloomhaven rather than any specific characters, the pacing seems about right to me given the number of scenarios and unlockable character classes.

Do you mean just 6 boxes marked off, or level 6 prosperity?

If 6 boxes, I don't think that's too far off. If you think you should be going faster, see below.

Question in spoilers. If the answer is "no," I think that's probably the issue.

have you donated enough gold to open envelope b?

Prosperity level is intended to increase much more slowly than character level. Reaching prosperity 9 should only happen once you're basically at 100% completion.

If 6 boxes, I think you're going more slowly than you might need to.


If it's level 6 prosperity, you're going orders of magnitude faster than what's possible. Level 6 is reached at 35 prosperity, which is nowhere near possible from 12 scenarios.

Yeah I meant six boxes. And responses make sense, I was just curious if we were on pace.

In response to the spoiler, yeah that was one of the increases. I'm just torn on continuing or not as trying to save money for my personal quest and my partner is stingy.

After about 5 scenarios, we had only completed 1 box on the prosperity table.

But once we'd donated enough gold to the temple, things changed with opening of envelope B
