You will get any three of the following quests. Note: There is a Sanity Meter. It is depleted when you are spotted by one of the minions.

  • Skinchanger: Use smokebomb on pumpkins (Suspicious Pumpkin) to revealed the transformed imp. Even just one player will do. If the chest glows blue, that is the imp. Click it.
