In the second Scenario, I drew On the Wings of Darkness (which would, among other things, move me to a Central location if I failed the Agility test) while I was in Rivertown, which is the only Central location in this scenario. On page 15 of the Rules Reference it says: "When an entity or game element moves, it cannot move to its same (current) placement. If there is no valid destination for a move, the move cannot be attempted."

So, should I just discard this card with no effect and feel lucky that this Nightgaunt didn't see me as it flew over...?! Or would the Nightgaunt just pick me up and drop me back in another part of Rivertown, bruised and shaken?

It'd still do the damage from the first part of the card, but the move portion would/could not resolve.

My interpretation would be to take the damage and horror, disengage from any non-Nightgaunts, stay at the location.

edit: with regard to how the disengagement would be applied (assuming it's supposed to be applied in this situation!), it would immediately re-engage using the regular rules (Aloof-type excepted). So if multiple investigators are at that location, and assuming no Prey preference, the lead investigator would select with whom the enemy re-engages and, since no actual movement takes place, I suspect this could still be the original investigator.

The card in question, spoilered because spoilers,

Because the card explicitly states to do one thing, then another, you should do the first, and ignore the second, treating them each as separate events.

"Then" effects are a very special beast. I suggest you read this rules entry: http://arkhamdb.com/rules#Then

To answer your question: you'd take damage and horror, disengage from enemies, and fail to move. The enemies would immediately re-engage you.

Where is the "central" keyword defined?

Yes, i can make the obvious conclusion its rivertown in the second scenario, but i was taken aback when i couldnt find a keyword reference. Did i miss the rule for "central?"

Central is not a keyword, it is a trait, found a the top of the textbox for the location.
