Hi, I'm playing through "The Hunt for Gollum" for the first time and ran into this situation. Not sure how to resolve the rules properly.
During the staging step, the first card I reveal is a "Signs of Gollum", which has the guarded keyword.
Following the guarded keyword, I reveal an additional card from the encounter deck. It is "Massing at Night", a treachery. In response, I cancel it with Eleanor and reveal another card as instructed by Eleanor.
The card revealed by Eleanor is another "Signs of Gollum". So now I am a bit confused and have the following questions.
1. Does the second Signs that I drew from Eleanor's ability count as the card revealed by the guarded keyword for the first Signs? Because if so, it seems that the rules indicate I should reveal another card to guard the first Signs.
2. For the second Signs, do I reveal another card to guard it?
I am guessing that the answer to question 1 is "no" and that the first Signs will remain unguarded (because the treachery was the one that was supposed to guard it) and that the answer to question 2 is "yes", that I need to reveal another card to guard it
(And then after this I will have to reveal another card as part of the staging process)
Please let me know how to play out this situation.
