After the Averlanders encountered the hideous King in Yellow, he returned several battles later to torment the Carnival of Chaos. By this time they had hired a Reaver (Universal Hero). The King once again appeared as though from nowhere, immediately surrounding them and offering no escape - but instead offering a choice:
- Agree to have the right arm of your leader chopped off.
- Give up the life of their newest hero.
RESULT: The Great Hoodoo, leader of the foul Carnival, remained selfish; the Reaver was killed and the King melted back into the darkness, leaving behind only his laughter.
As a result of his self-centered actions, the every member of the Carnival suffered a -1 penalty to their leadership as a result of their loss of faith in their leader. This penalty lasted until the Carnival won their next battle, at which point their confidence in their leader was restored.
