Issue/question come up last night while playing this game. We had a character get captured. The player that now had control of the character rolled a 5 and got the Mutiny fate. Since there was no left over characters it got traded to the play on his left. The question is if a rescue card or an escape fate comes up would the ordinal player get their character back?
The Rescue and Escape fates only allow characters that were captured or in traps to be returned to their original owners. It does not matter what happens to that character along the way. A captured character who then commits mutiny would still be returned to its original owner through the Rescue and Escape fates.
