First City Coin[edit]

One side bears what might be a cedar tree. You've never met anyone who can read the script on the other side. Ambition-only: Trade in Connected: The Masters for 50 per change point, or trade in Warm Ambers for 6 apiece. For everyone: From the Pennies from Heaven card in the Numismatrix storyline, or exchange Broken Giant on a Presumptous Little opportunity. [4] Fortunate result for converting 50 x Compromising Document to Stolen Kisses.
