just played some ES games so far, and I still don't have a complete grasp of the rules, so sorry if my question is silly.
I'm not sure to get this point of the rules: it's said that whenever you fail a task, you may use one of the rolled dice to focus or assist. It's the assisting thing I'm not sure about. It's said you can give the die to one of your fellow investigators actually on the same Adventure Card. But how's possible to have two investigators on the same adventure? If I understand correctly the rules, player A plays. He moves to the Entrance or on an Adventure card, he resolves the Encounter Phase, he advances the clock, and then he returns to the Entrance if he's successful, otherwise he stays on the Adventure card. The only possible situation for assisting someone else is the following one: investigator A tries Adventure 1 and fails. Investigator B tries the same Adventure, and fails as well; so he leaves a die to investigator A for a possible next turn re-match on the same Adventure. Is this correct?
Another question: let's say Investigator A is on an Adventure card with a Terror effect. Let's say he fails twice in a row his attempts to finish any quest: and he now has only 4 dice, but 5 are required to pass Adventure. Is he allowed to stop rolling dice in order to avoid the risk of triggering the Terror effect? Or has he to roll dice until he has no one left? What if he has 5 dice, and decides not to roll them, because the odds are too low? Is this allowed?
Thanks for help
