So I might be over thinking this. And couldn't find the answer in other posts.
If a card has an ability that says if you take X damage/horror then x. Such as Agnes card ability (After 1 or more horror is placed on Agnes deal 1 damage). Is that damage that she (Agnes) takes and puts on her card or if I defer damage to an ally does that count as damage to Agnes (me the player)? In other words does the damage have to go (in this case to Agnus) on her card to get the ability? I ran across this with a certain card and Roland as well but don't have it in front of me to look.
