I wanted to ask a question about the Dunwich Horror ally Zebulon Whateley. His text says "Exhaust to refresh one of your spells". This brought a very interesting discussion to the group.
Could one cast Shrivelling (which uses one hand), then exhaust Zebulon, and then recast Shrivelling. This will give two Shrivellings, which is +12 to combat and still leave another hand free for a weapon, or another spell.
The group was divided. Some thought it was ok, others that casting two Shrivellings would use up both hands, and others that it wasn't meant to be used in the same combat but for another combat on the same turn.
There is nothing in the rulebooks that contradicts the first (though seemingly overpowered) idea since the rules clearly state that the printed hands on the cards can't exceed two. You're using Shrivelling twice but the printed hands are still one.
Is there a solid answer on this one?
