Confused about quests. Rhado says starting quests and advanced quests are secret, but a post on here says Sauron knows the heroes quests. Which is correct?
Quests are open, Missions are hidden. Granted, I for one have played the game enough that I'd know just on placement of any initial character by the hero starting quest what quest he has.
Also, quests from Encounter cards, are these secret or does the hero player have to read the card out loud?
Open again. Plus hero needs to reveal the Encounter cards to verify that's the card he will resolve (aka the one with the lowest priority number).
"A Quest is always assigned to a specific hero and may only
be completed by the hero who is displaying it in his play area." (p. 25)
