Former Hell-Club is a dark past card that says: Hero takes 3 wounds or 3 corruption. What's the point of this choice? If you're already at max corruption isn't this just 3 wounds anyway?

It has been asked many, many times.

It's possible for the card to be revealed before reaching maximum corruption.

I don't really care how many times it's been asked, especially considering that a google search and a bgg search turns up nothing, but thanks.

This card is in the core game. Where in the core game can it be revealed before maximum corruption? Core game only, not including KS exclusives (Mayor) or future unanounced expansions.

One of the Corruption stories, if I recall right, has an event where the Sins player chooses a Faith player to reveal their card regardless of corruption level.

Eric lang Designs these games before the publisher ever decides what to do with the kickstarter. So he needs to design everything to work together regardless of whether it is an expansion or exclusive. The Mayor could very well have been designed as a core hell club member, but CMON decided it would be an exclusive.

Your implied point of it being a badly designed card because there is nothing in the core game about it is completely contrary to good design. Being designed so it take into account possible expansions from the start makes the design better, not worse.

There's no mention from anyone saying 'badly designed'. Just a simple question which gets asked a lot but never gets properly answered. Personally, this is my favourite game to play right now and I think the design is excellent
