1. Can a hero choose NOT to be escorted to a location?
2. It seems rather odd that there is a choice here of forfeiting one favour (in payment for the escort) or getting a 'free rest' (shuffling cards back into the life pool). Should the payment of a favour be compulsory and not an alternative: Pay one favour AND THEN shuffle the cards into your life pool in order to be escorted...? (This would mean that if the hero had no favours s/he could NOT be escorted to another location (unable to pay the fee). In the games we have played so far taking the 'free rest' option has given the hero player what seems to be unfair advantage (especially if the secret mission is to collect favours).
