The Violinist's Personal Story

8 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

 

I just played the Violinist, Patrice Hathaway, in a game last night I have a question about her personal story.  In order to complete her story she places a clue token on her story card each time she "Draws" a unique item and she succeeds after she has placed two tokens on her card. That seems simple enough but...

 

She begins play in the Curiosity Shop where in place of an encounter a character may "Draw" three unique items and her story card does not specify that she needs to draw the cards from other sources like encounters, monsters and mythos cards; so, can she satisfy the requirements of her story just by drawing cards from the curiosity shop's special encounter or is there some rule or erata about this that I am missing?  

 

 

P.S. I used this tactic to complete her story after I saw another player camp out at the Shop to find books for Dexter Drake's personal story.

It would not be enough to merely draw a Unique item-you would also have to purchase it. As long as you can manage that sure you can draw right from the Curiositee Shop. You will likely need another investigator to give her some money or get yourself a bank loan or retainer or both.

Yes. Jackman is right. "Draw" means "draw and keep" as "read" in Minh's personal story implies "reads succesfully" and so on

It's not in the rules, but in the latest FAQ, pag 37:

 

Q: Several personal Story Cards require an investigator to place a Clue token on the card each time the investigator draws a certain kind of item. Is a Clue token placed on the card in cases where the card type is drawn but not taken? For example, if Amanda Sharpe is using the Curiositie Shoppe’s special ability, she draws three Unique Items and then purchases one. For this does she gain three Clue tokens or just one?
A: It would count as only one. The intention of these Personal Story cards is that a Clue token is placed on the card each time an investigator draws and keeps a card of the appropriate type.

...and it doesn't include one's starting possessions.

I just assumed that seeing as how she starts with 2 unique items and that would mean she'd succeed before the game even started ;)

 

 

Thx for the replies everyone,
