I'm going to piggyback on this thread since I have a somewhat related question. When you are instructed to discard half of your item possessions and you only have one, do you have to discard it? I have been playing that you have to since everything seems to be rounded against the investigators in the game.
Reference Guide page 10:
If an effect references “half ” of a number, round up to determine the final number.
