I have two questions.
1) Do NPCs only ever belong to one specific Detective? This came to mind as I was packing up the game and I thought of putting all pieces specific to a Detectives into one little bin. For example: only Keene and Parsons can ever be used by Raymond, right?
And how do you know the NPCs names? Are they listed somewhere in the manual? I could not find it.
2) The manual says to shuffle dark and light card decks separately. Placing the dark deck on the board between the earth and moon and the light cards next to the Investigator they belong to. That's only two decks.
Is there a reason why light cards are colored to match the plot cards? When I first noticed this I thought maybe you were suppose to create 3 light card decks and use only the color deck that matches the current plot for your Detective. Maybe there is some other reason? I'm sure I'm missing something here.
I do remember reading on dark card that said something like 'draw 3 cards from 'x' Detective. If the color of one of those cards match their current plot then get 'x' reward.' Could this kind of thing be the only reason for the colors on the light cards?
