Card Choice (deathcard) Choose between three different Deathcards.

This event appears after dying five times, and does not appear in Kaycee's Mod due to the mode's lack of the deathcard mechanic.

Deck Trial Allows the player to undergo a trial of their deck, where they may select a desired condition and wait to see if three cards drawn at random from their deck collectively fulfil the specified condition. If the player passes the deck trial, they are granted a choice of three cards, each with a random additional sigil.

In Kaycee's Mod, the reward options each have two additional sigils rather than one.

Bone Altar Allows the player to choose a card to permanently remove from their deck, granting a Minor Boon of the Bone Lord in return.

Sacrificing a Black Goat grants a regular Boon of the Bone Lord rather than the minor variant.

Sacrificing a pelt grants nothing.

Mysterious stones Sacrifice a card to transfer its sigils to another card.
Gain Consumables Choose between three Consumable Items until you have reached the maximum of three.

If you already have three items, a Pack Rat card will be given.

Campfire May either be a health campfire or damage campfire. The player may choose to rest a card at the fire to increase either it's damage by 1 or health by 2 depending on the campfire type. Despite ominous dialogue, the first campfire buff is always safe, however if the player chooses to rest their card at the same fire more than once, there is a chance upon each subsequent rest for the card to be destroyed.

The maximum amount of times a card may be buffed per campfire is 4 in Act I and 2 in Kaycee's Mod.
