Hello! It has been some time since I have played, and, of coure, I came across something that I was unsure about. My friend was using Roland, and he drew Professor Rice as his starting ally. If he is taken at the beginning of the game like that does his card text still take effect? He is still entering play, but it is from the very beginning. Would each unstable location then, in effect, start the game with two clue tokens on it? We played it so that his text still did take effect, and everything had two clue tokens until the first gate opened.
One other thing did occur that I was pretty sure I played correctly, but I figure I might as well take this opportunity to confirm it. There was a mythos card that made the first player switch the location of two investigators. It did not specify investigators "in Arkham," and it did say that there were no restrictions on movement of any kind. Would it then be legal to switch an investigator in an other world with an investigator who is still in Arkham?
It feels good to be playing again, and, as always, thank you for any information that you may be able to provide!
