Re: Newspaper reports, and question about encounters and Dra
There should not be 10. In all FFG games, if there are cards to 'replace', then you should replace them. The issue with the Newspaper Reports card may be just a slight addition to the language, as the original cards referred to the 'oldest' location being the 'left-most' but from Dracula's perspective, the oldest is the right-most, so I think they just added a 'from Dracula's perspective' line or something like that.
You're correct. Resolve the Encounter first, then fight Dracula. In that case, Dracula may be able to avoid the Hunter entirely if the Encounter is something like Fog.
