Yesterday we finished scenario 20. It was fun, as Gloomhaven always is, but what I want to talk about is the fact that it bumped us to prosperity level 3.
Up until this point Steve (my Cragheart) had not been very impressed with the item selection. He had 3 potions, some nice boots and an ok armor. He also had a helmet he never used and a dagger he never used yet there was nothing in the shop that seemed like it was worth the money.
Then we revealed the prosperity 3 shop items and Steve's eyes opened wide with delight.

A straight armour upgrade! A better health potion! O man look at that spear, that goes great with at least two of my cards. And that earing will allow me to refresh my boots, my new armour AND my new spear!
Steve thought he would never be able to afford all of the new shinies. But when he added the cost it only came down to 100 gold pieces. He had 81 gold in his pockets and when he would sell the items that would be replaced he would be at 101 gold coins! It's as if the gods have wanted him to buy it all.
Steve is now more excited than ever to help his friends explore the next dungeon and try out his new items.
