At the table, Emma rolls dice and they all come up failures. She stares at her character sheet and dice in disbelief.
Emma: I failed to pray for my spells?
Farid: Yep. Failing your Theologian roll means I get to choose which spells the gods grant you.
Farid takes Emma’s character sheet, writes on it, then gives it back for Emma to read.
Emma: The gods gave me Grace of the Lords of Plenty three times? But that’s a spell for making food last longer…
In the game, Tash and Emma look over their impressive pile of provisions. Farid speaks in a voice over.
Emma: …and we have plenty of food.
Farid: Don’t be too sure about that.
A swarm of locusts descends and covers everything edible, devouring all of their supplies except for some moldy old bread.
Tash: The spell will make this sterile, right?
Emma: Praise the gods in their infinite wisdom.
