Prior Events:  The two scouts Eve Reith and Titania Waunder are sent in a small ship to investigate the surface of an unknown planet. Their mother ship is destroyed by a mysterious missile. When the small ship crash-lands on the island of Vord, Eve breaks a leg in the impact. In the following weeks, she is cured by a Pnumekin (a human servant of the Pnume aliens), R2714, who also teaches Eve the basics of the language, geography and history of planet Tschai. The underground Pnume settlement is attacked by the Dirdir, a different alien race. Eve manages to escape and reach the surface, but she is wounded.  While hiding among the rocks, Eve meets a man, Uarzuan, who cures her wound and leads her to an abandoned Pnume tunnel.  A Dirdir follows them into the tunnel and kills Uarzuan.  Eve kills the Dirdir, but she is taken prisoner by a fellow of Uarzuan, Zutiz, that leads her to a boat. They sail Northward on an artificial canal.
[I drew two Game Master ‘s Apprentice cards: “Return Sacrilegious Investment”]
After a few hours, Zutiz stops the boat next to a pillar surmounted by a blue moon. “I must return an amulet to Braz, the Blue Moon who has protected me. We will proceed tomorrow, if Braz so wants”.
Eve’s goal: continue the navigation along the canal.
Round 1: near the pillar, Zutiz and Eve meet a priestess of Braz. She examines the amulet and says that Zutiz must be tried by the snakes of the goddess. Zutiz asks the priestess if his prisoner Eve is exempted from the trial. “YES AND” Eve will not be considered a prisoner any more. She is a free woman.
Round 2: The priestess leads Zutiz to a stone shrine and locks him inside. She tells Eve: “tomorrow we will know if he has passed the trial”. The priestess cures Eve’s wound. Does Zutiz pass the trial? “YES”. [two successes, the last challenge will be with an advantage, the best of two results]
The next day, Zutiz exits the shrines. He is tired but unarmed.
Round 3: Are Zutiz and Eve free to go now? “YES BUT” the priestess says that, when they reach the city of Osomena, Eve will have to be tried at the temple of Az, the Pink Moon.
