Even More Deck Adventures

I've had a few adventures with the Deck of Many Things recently (well since February) with positive results. Here is the first:
The Deepening Darkness
The curving passageway has become increasingly more difficult to descend. Water still flows upon the floor, and from the ceiling large droplets fall, further eroding the already saturated soil. The air is much thicker, making it increasingly difficult to breathe, and while large enough to fit most humanoids, the unstable nature of the tunnel heightens a  sense of foreboding.
Exits: north southwest
The Deck of Many Things lies in wait for a brave soul.
The Deck of Many Things says 'If you can find a card within me, you might be lucky enough to draw something of value.
However, once you submit to chance, you put yourself at the mercy of the cards.
The Deck of Many Things winks suggestively.

> g key dec
You get the Key to the Deck of Many Things from the Deck of Many Things.
The Key to the Deck shudders menacingly.
You drop the Key to the Deck of Many Things.
Vl'aresch gives you one gold coin for your sacrifice of the Key to the Deck of Many Things.
Be Forewarned : You could lose all that you own.
Modra has been given the chance to draw from the Deck of Many Things.
 
> g card deck
You get a card from the Deck of Many Things.
A mystical being appears and points at you. Your senses reel as you are flung through the void to another place.
The card twists and wriggles in your hands.
A great flash of light envelopes the room, blinding you momentarily.
When your vision returns, you see that the Deck of Many Things lies before you once more.
It is highly recommended that you examine the deck before drawing from it. When you are ready, simply take the card.

> g card deck
You get a card from The Deck of Many Things.
You see that you have drawn The Page of Swords.
What this card bodes for your future, only an immortal of level 57 or above can discover for you.

Destre says 'you know I have never seen this pull'

Destre says 'have to figure out how to actually do it'

> say last time i got this card it was bad and i got -hp on the char's base

Destre jumps into the air and gives you a MEGA high five! Woo hoo!

> say thank you very much
You say 'thank you very much'

Destre says 'enjoy :>'

> thank des

 Plus 20hp on the base of any character is a big win even if I did use a back up mage for this pull. My second deck pull was:
Small Hut
These are the living quarters of these villagers.  Very simple looking, it is circular in shape with pots and pans along one side, an outhouse along another and miscellaneous items scattered about.  These people live a very simple life with no luxury.  You wonder how they entertain themselves.
