Normally, at the start of each Torchbearer session, one player reminds the rest of the group of what happened in the previous session. This is called the session prologue and that player is rewarded by alleviating a condition or a point of taxed nature from their character. However, The West Marches does not follow the same group every session, and thus the normal prologue rules do not apply. Instead, any player who contributes content to the wiki between sessions receives the benefit of performing the session prologue.

Conditions must be alleviated in the following order:

  1. Hungry/Thirsty
  2. Angry
  3. Afraid
  4. Exhausted
  5. Injured
  6. Sick
