As the title says, we stumbled upon the hidden envelope that states "Open this when you believe you deserve it", but we're trying to figure out exactly when that might be (we've already had a few moments possibly worth it). That being said, WITHOUT SPOILING WHAT'S IN IT, has anyone opened it and what happened that made you open it?

My group decided that we deserved it when all 4 players had retired at least 1 character.

I opened it after working a 14 hour shift. Figured I deserved it after that.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

I'm about 5 scenarios in and only playing solo so far. I'll probably open it once I have a multiplayer campaign going as I don't deserve it playing with myself as much as I do.

LOL. The bar was low laugh

We waited until everyone had retired one character. I couldn't have done it as early as the first boss, there was still so much new stuff we wanted to save this for a lull.

I didn't find this one until about 3 scenarios in when

repacking the box
. My husband wanted to open it immediately. I did not. After another couple scenarios, I told him he could open it but now he won't, presumably because he thinks I'm just saying it and don't really feel like we deserve it yet. It's hard to gauge if we deserve it without knowing what it is, but I'll probably push to open it soon. I feel like finally getting a handle on the little rules that we keep messing up is enough to earn it!

We haven't yet.

Btw. better put a spoiler warning in the title.

The existance of the envelope is not common knowledge.

You should spoiler tag that-- though it should be unlikely that anyone that has not found it read this deep into the comments. Yeah, maybe it's on them-- but the community seems very picky about spoiler info (like... there's a class named the "neigh-sayer" would spoil ALL kinds of stuff)

I opened it after beating scenario 2 in under 5 turns (2nd time through). That being said, I thought

What, you think I'd spoil it that easily? Try again.

Nope, still nothing. The next one will definitely have the spoiler.

The contents of the envelope
were pretty neat.

The reason I didn't is because the rulebook actually states there are 4 envelopes, but only A, B, and X are visible at first.

Which version of the rulebook do you mean? I'm looking at V6 and it says 3 sealed envelopes.

Not sure, one of the older versions with the HP/XP pegs instead of the dials (yay for charity raffles!).

I've heard a rumor that...

Spoiler (click to reveal)
the game at some point hints at this envelope's existence


So then,

Spoiler (click to reveal)
I don't think I deserve it before I at least find this hint, if it truly exists


Because:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
I definitely don't deserve it just because I purchased a 3rd party insert
Spoiler (click to reveal)
and found the envelope when I threw away the included vac tray...
even though the 3rd party insert was pretty expensive in real-world money lol

We just finished Scenario 29 with 3 characters 1 turn away from exhaustion, resulting in 2 retirements. We're seriously considering it.
Edit: And no, we aren't there yet.

We were looking for a "lost" +2 card from one of the DM decks, and we were really annoyed by the time we found it (the envelope, not the missing card - which was found a few days later in one of the character boxes between the ability cards). So we decided that we deserved it.

Well, the content IS neat, but we now have the problem that we don't really know ...

SPOILER about the content:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
... if we meet the scenario requirement. So, apart from the requirement, we did not dare to even look at anything about the scenario until now.

Does it refer to a certain event or something? Can it be open whenever you deserve it? (Use spoiler tags please)

Either the OP or the thread title should indicate spoilers. The existence of a hidden envelope is a spoiler, and there is no way for an outsider to know not to read until it's too late.
