This card shares some similarities with Flashlight: It has 3 charges and reduces shroud by 2. However it costs 4 XP, is a free action and can also help other investigators.
It's so much better:
- Flashlight stacks with this card, which makes it very powerful on Hard and Expert, as you can reduce shroud 4 to 0, for nearly auto success (only auto fail)
- Any test that is based on shroud benefits here (some enemies depend on local shroud, like spoiler)
- As a Spell, can be searched with Arcane Initiate (only Daisy Walker at this time)
- Can be used to trigger Rex Murphys ability more often
Can be Recharged
- Not sure about it, but i think if several players have this card at same location, they can stack it's effect. It think the limit on the card is player specific, otherwise i'd have to be "Group Limit once per turn"
