In this episode of "the writer's thinly disguised fetish":
Take your pick of Asian women! Submissive secretary or Kung-Fu Chick in an Armpit Cheongsam! Haha, I'm drunk but this is funny. How'd it get past editing or whatever anyway? All the other ethnic groups get some level of antistereotypical diversity, not too much 'fitting into the setting', but both sides of the collective American megaphone enthusiast community insultingly agree that fitting in lovecraftian works isn't for minorities. Shame.
What an insultingly comically tokenistic card.

Wait. Your problem with this particular FFG diversity hire is that it's "insultingly comically tokenistic"? As opposed to, say, Stella Clark, Daniela Reyes, etc. etc. etc.? — Eudaimonea · 4
Haven't gotten there yet. Right now I'm staring at https://arkhamdb.com/card/60410 trying to figure out why they keep referencing Lovecraft's black cat (who was named something very rude). — ArchivesIV · 1
Haha, just looked at Stella what the ####. The "postman"? Affirmed by the mysterious voices? Did someone on the writing team have a bone to pick? — ArchivesIV · 1
Well, I was going to write something there, but you've appearently locked me out of a good time. Jerk. Ah well. Have fun in looney racist not-racist land. — ArchivesIV · 1

With always prepared, you draw this card from the discard when you draw an encounter card, before applying its effects FFG answer: With the Always Prepared upgrade, you return a copy of Grizzled from your discard pile to your hand after you draw the encounter card but before resolving its effects. The intent is that you have the copy of Grizzled available to use for that encounter card.

Keep Faith

Wendy loves fast events, and the ability to play them twice in the same turn (or just twice when needed) gives the event soooooo much value. Now, a zero-cost fast event is just gravy, now you don't even have to pay for it!

I've actually played a Blessed Wendy once, and the deck overperformed a lot, it really surprised me. Tempt Fate and Keep Faith were two of my most powerful cards, I drew positive with Tempt Fate, and completely filled the bag with Keep Faith for my A Watchful Peace (which if you're not playing taboo and have a lot of blesses you can play two Mythos in a row and laugh histerically). If I had had access to this card back then, it would've been a no-brainer.

Ok, so I’ve just realized that I’ve been playing Wendy wrong all along. My brain autofilled Wendy’s Amulet forced ability to only work on events on the discard pile… for some reason.

Even with all this, the deck is way less degenerate, but I believe it would still work.

Are you suggesting you can play the event once from hand and immediately use Wendy's Amulet to play it a second time from your discard pile? If so I'm afraid that doesn't work, the Forced effect on the Amulet puts the event on the bottom of your deck not the discard pile. — Pseudo Nymh · 41
Thanks for making me realize I made a fool of myself in front of everyone. — TomásAmi · 144
At least you can edit a review. I've said dumb things in Comments and there's no option to edit those! FWIW I agree Keep Faith 2 is a good card and a strong pick for Blessed Wendy. — Pseudo Nymh · 41
Dark Memory

I am just here to remind you, future parallel Agnes player, that the ability on her says "reduce the cost to play that event by two, and you MAY shuffle that event back into your deck instead of discarding it" so just take the damage, lower the cost by two, and let the Dark Memories flush down the discard pile!

Eldritch Initiation

This card gets new life with the addition of Occult Reliquary to the game, becoming essentially a cheaper Preposterous Sketches that doesn't need a clue for those early turns when you're fishing for your spells to put down. Granted it does start to fall off when you're already in a good position but the card makes for good mitigation as a floor even before you consider the decks where you're playing Astral Mirror and want to be playing the many cards that can increase your slots.

I think that's quite expensive life this one gets with Occult Reliquary. It's 3 exp, that's not cheap. Mystics already have a good draw with tabooed Scroll of Secrets which doesn't need any additional card to include (and to purchase for precious exp) to work. Yes, it does occupy hand slot but in Mystic you like always have a spare hand. This could be good in some decks but definitely not an auto include in most I think. — bugiel_marek · 13
Yes I suppose I neglected to mention that this is for decks that are buying occult reliquary anyways for their blessed and cursed assets, and not to spend 3 xp solely to improve this level 0 card. — Spamamdorf · 4
