1) How does the command 'randomly discard/choose a card from the opponents'/your hand' (from people like agent, or the thief) effect organizations, factions, and long term advantage cards (like seals of the dragon, magical object) as they are shown face up (i think) and thus can't be randomly chosen?
2) Also, if you have such cards in play, do they count towards your 5 card hand limit?
ie, I have 3 combat adv cards, one organization, and one faction in play and I complete my exploration phase. I choose Advantage reward on a level 3 area. How many cards do I take?
3) if i draw the avatar of death (discard all cards from your hand)
does that mean i discard all characters and their enhancements (plot cards like romance, etc), organizations, and other advantage cards?
Or do i just discard all advantage cards that aren't organizations, enhancement type cards?
4... not really a hand question...) can I play divine intervention (or other such avoid encounter abilities/cards) on that encounter to avoid Avatar of Death?
