Salutations to the Mythos Massif! I appeal to your collective wisdom
I am a new player to EH (had my 1st hame recently) and require a clarification on a situation concerning being delayed and then Detained that occured.
The situation was thus:
The investigator had an other world encounter in London passing the initial test. She then had a choice to become delayed and gain 2 clue tokens which I took. Then she became delayed in the Mythos phase (Cant remember exact event). I am now Delayed and detained.
The next turn happens and the investigators action phase activates. Now by my understanding I can not have any actions in the action phase except to stand my chracter token back up, So I could not attempt the roll on the detained card to get rid of it. Encounter phase now happens and instead of having an encounter I simply flip the detained card straight over and resolve the situation.
Did we play that correctly or could I have still rolled to remove the detained card?
Seems that being delayed instantly makes being delayed worse as you cant avoid the flip side effect.
