Hi all,
There was a similar question to this, but it wasn't precisely this.

Suppose the following scenario:

i) The Hospital Incident occurs
ii) There is 2 intrigue on the Hospital
iii) A Lover is in the Hospital
iv) The Loved One is not in the Hospital

The protagonists definitely lose the loop, as they have just been killed. But does the Loved One (the one outside the hospital) gain the 6 paranoia due to the death of the Lover? Or does the loop end before the protagonists get to see this?

Yes, the Loved One gets the 6 paranoia, according to this post with input from the designer:
Quote:
Case 1: if the Lover is in the Hospital when the two Intrigue Hospital Incident occurs, everyone dies at the same time, including the Lover, which means that the Protagonist players will be able to see the reaction.

Yes, the sequence of events would unfold as follows.

1) Paranoia on culprit for Hospital Incident is checked, if Panicked then:
2) Hospital has one Intrigue. All characters in the Hospital die. Loved One gains six paranoia. Then:
3) Hospital has two Intrigue. Protagonists are killed. End of Loop.

Now, while the Protagonists now know that there is a Loved One/Lover pair in play, they will NOT know which is which, as the Paranoia goes both ways. A good Mastermind will stack the Hospital with as many victims as possible to confuse who is what role.

Strictly speaking, (2) and (3) happen simultaneously, rather than in succession. Otherwise, if a Key Person was in the Hospital, the loop would end before the protagonists were killed, which would reveal the Key Person's presence. That is, the mastermind would announce something like "The incident occurs; all characters in the Hospital die; the loop ends; you lose", rather than "The incident occurs; all characters in the Hospital die; you die; the loop ends; you lose".

Perfect, thanks Simon.
I'd done a cursory search of other threads but missed the one with answers from the designer.
