I ask about the Twisting passage and the Cave torch, and Caleb answer is different than yours, so I should post his answer here :
The question include different reasonning on why it could have been otherwise.
Q: We are using the Cave Torch to place progress token on Twisting Passage, but there is only 1 card left in the encounter deck. We have: A: Forced effect of Cave Torch trigger when Cave Torch is exhausted as the cost of an effect and B: Forced effect of Twisting Passage trigger before progress token are placed as the resolution of an effect. If there is a time gap between paying the cost of an effect and the resolution of the effect, then B should resolved before A.
If Forced effect can't interrupt effect resolution, then A should resolved before B.If there is no time gap and Forced effect can interupt resolution of other effect, then the first player can choose. What is the right sequence ?
A: The Forced effect of Cave Torch is not a cost. It is a Forced response to triggering its effect. A cost always comes before the effect. In this case, when you exhaust the Cave Torch, the resolution of that effect is to put 3 progress tokens on Twisting Passage. Then, you will resolve the Forced effect on Cave Torch. But the Forced effect on Twisting Passage interrupts the resolution of that effect by forcing you to make a locate test. There is no choice for the first player to make because the timing of Twisting Passage (before placing progress...) triggers before Cave Torch (after Cave Torch exhausts...).
