If a character in another location is attempting to acquire a weapon, can the Swipe Spell be used from another location to acquire the weapon and if so who does it go to - the player playing the spell or the player that attempted to acquire the weapon. I'm also a bit confused on the part of lowering the enemy by 3. Can that be played from a location other than the encounter? It doesn't say "your" encounter as how else could you play it to lower someone else's encounter but wondering if it is only if the character playing it is in same location or can they be in different one.

Any effect that allows evasion of an encounter or resolution of a check without rolling can only be played by the character whose check or encounter it is. So you can only swipe a boon you encounter, yourself.

If location is not mentioned, location does not matter.

Swipe can't be used to acquire a card another character encounters, only cards you encounter.

That really just clarifies the rule that you can't succeed at something for another character.

The power to lower the difficulty of a combat check can apply to a check at any location, since the card places no limit on the location.

Ok that all makes sense. Card was a bit confusing since it has a few different facets to it.

Swipe is arguably the best spell in the game. I think that and Bewilder are my top two.

Disintegrate is my favorite. Not sure about a second fav -- either Bewilder or Mass Cure.
