The Barrier Is Thin
  • Q: If the agenda or act in Boundary Beyond advances to 3, and that causes the version of Templo Mayor to come out that says "shuffle your discard pile into your deck", who has to do that forced effect? If you are advancing the act, is it the player who actually advanced it? Do you just pick a player? Does no player do it? A: Generally speaking, whenever it is unclear who is resolving an ability, the investigators may choose who is resolving it. In the event that the investigators cannot decide, the lead investigator must resolve it. In this case, the person who is resolving the ability on Templo Mayor is the investigator advancing the act. In the event that it’s unclear who exactly advanced the act, simply decide at that moment in time amongst the investigators.

Mr. Peabody
  • Q: What happens to the effect created by Mr. Peabody if he then takes damage/horror and is discarded before he's able to ready? A: I believe it would linger forever, yes. Lasting effects persist beyond the expiration of the card that created it, and the timing point of “Mr. Peabody readying” would never occur, so….. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Cheap Shot
  • Q: If I use Cheap Shot against Harbinger of Valusia, do I add one resource or two? A: Both the attack and the evasion will add a resource to it, so Harbinger of Valusia will gain 2 resources from Cheap Shot if you succeed by 2 or more. see below

  • Q: I seem to recall a discussion indicating that automatic evasion wasn't "successful" evasion, though, since there's no skill test involved. And since the harbinger requires a successful attack or evasion (and bearing in mind the rule that qualifiers apply to each term in a list), wouldn't Cheap Shot apply only one resource token to the Harbinger?" A: Hm... Technically you are correct...although I've been wondering about that ruling regarding "automatic" evasion and "successful" evasion. I don't know how intuitive it is. For now, you are correct...but know that I may reverse that ruling at some point. It's kind of confusing either way, to be honest.

The Skeleton Key
  • Q: How does The Skeleton Key interact with Obscuring Fog or Lantern? A: If an effect "sets" the value of a statistic, that overrides all other modifiers. In other words, if a 4 shroud location has Obscuring Fog and The Skeleton Key attached to it, its shroud would still be 1, no matter what, because The Skeleton Key sets its value to 1. It is worth noting that this answer would be different if it set its "base" value – the "base" value of something is the value before modifiers are applied, so that would allow it to be modified afterward. But here Skeleton Key sets its value to 1, AKA the total value after all modifications.

  • Erratum: This card's ability should read: "If The Skeleton Key is in your play area, attach it to your location…" - FAQ, v.1.41, October 2018
