I don't like this location. If it were just that the investigator cannot gain resources during the upkeep phase that would be fine, but being stuck here and not being able to play cards to help in order to proceed can be devastating. You could for instance play Milan or something for the +1 int and then have him shuffled back in. Now you have 1 resource to help you out for the rest of the game getting through and if on hard or expert you need that 1 zero in the bag or star. It just ends up feeling too restrictive. And if the enemy spawns on you here unluckily early, well that's just a bad time for the non fighter with no resources. I think this location should have been adjusted slightly. Maybe even; enemies gain aloof here. So they are just watching over you until you enter and then pounce on you and chase you in.
Someone like Jim Culver for instance or Wendy or Skids or Agnes if they run out of resources due to treacheries etc. or an amnesia; might as well resign without even beginning; not good play experience.
