This is the play-by-play version of the previously posted story mode.

When you encounter a Haunt, put it in front of you. Then roll a d6 and add the number of Haunts in front of all players. If the result is 5 or more, summon and encounter Iesha Foxglove. If any characters encounter The Skinsaw Man, the ally Aldern Foxglove may not be played for the rest of the scenario.
