    So I got the message that the shrieker stole 8 trinkest from me. I see the shrieker mission available and it’s a champion level 5 mission. My highest heroes are only level 3 and I only have 3 of them. So does this mean I’m screwed?

    Spoilers Follow: Possibly screwed. Your only hope would be to load up your highest level available characters with de-stress and or dodge trinkets and give it a whirl, hoping to survive and escape. If you have man at arms or houndmasters available as your higher level troops, use them to bolster dodge as well perhaps.
    I had a game where the shrieker showed up as a apprentice level when I only had champion level heroes available, as well as scenarios like you describe. Now I try to keep at least one team of apprentice and one of veterans, just in case this happens. Spoiler follows:

    You only have to survive 3 or 4 rounds to complete the battle, but the shrieker attacks 3 or 4 times per round so it is not an easy survival with under leveled characters. Be sure to attack the nest when not spending the turn for something more important, as it offers good monetary reward if destroyed, regardless of whether the shrieker dies.

    Thanks for all the info. So in other words I’m screwed. The Shrieker has definitely been the worst part about this game so far. If I use my highest level characters, in this case my level 3s, I run the risk of losing them along with their trinkets. So not only do I lose the original trinkets but also my higher level characters. I am tempted to either restart the game or just stop playing at all and play some other games instead. Either way thanks for all the info.

    I think you sum it up well, just bad luck. I will add that if your heroes don’t survive they would also lose the trinkets I suggested you take with you as well. Another option could be to just let it have the trinkets? Honestly, by the end of the game you will likely be using ancestral trinkets and/or crimson court trinkets if you have the add on. That is not to say they are not some good ones captured you will miss not having, but possible it will hurt you more now than it does later. Good luck.
