Is it just me or do some of the kingsport cards seem to punish a good role.  One of the other world cards reads:

The Underworld

Nuguth-Yug demands homage be paid to Noden, his lord. Discard any number of clue tokens, then roll that many dice.  Your Sanity and Stamina are reduced to the number of successes you roll. If they are reduced to zero, or if you have no Clue tokens to discard, you are devoured.

I think there are other cards that screw investigators for successful roles but dont have time to hunt through the deck.


You think I suffer from insanity, I don't. I ENJOY EVERY MINUTE OF IT!!

First, I suppose you meant to write 'roll', second, I guess you've been misreading the card:

Sanity and Stamina are set TO the number of successes, they are not decreased BY the number of successes.
