An upcoming Gaunt battle.

Gaunts are a type of enemy in Darkest Dungeon II. Gaunts may be found in every Region, typically in road battles or at the Chirurgeon's Table. They may rarely appear in Resistance Encounters accompanying regional (non-Gaunt) enemies. In an upcoming road battle with Gaunts, there will be a single lantern hanging amidst the obstacles in the road.
