playing this solo and had a quick question on The Tunnels Below agenda 2b card. the ghoul that i draw will spawn in my location ready and engaged, assuming no special spawning rule on the card, correct? also, the action on this card is separate from the normal mythos phase where i draw another encounter card, correct? this is pretty nasty if so..as i have to deal with a ravenous ghoul in the attic and a priest in the hallway huntingme..and whatever nastiness i draw from the encounter deck this turn. ouch

Sounds about right. Yes, it is nasty and the best way to avoid it, is the get to Act 3 as fast as possible. We generally are able to finish before getting to Agenda 3.

Those pesky weaknesses always turn up at the worst possible times, don't they? The best laid plans of mice and men and all that.

If you're playing with one core set, you pretty much have to go with the flow, but if you have 2 cores, I'd suggest building for what's coming. You know the Ghoul Priest will turn up, and you either need to deal with him or resign. In my opinion Dynamite Blast is not the best way. A gun and perhaps a Guard Dog will do wonders. Best of luck.

i do have another question.. not sure if this is legal. playing a solo game and Roland was in the Attic and Lita was in the Parlor, her starting location.. can i use the parley action to test Lore to take control of Lita even though we are not in the same location? i played that way and realized that probably isnt correct. does roland have to move to the parlor to use the parley action on lita's card?

You have to be in the same location as Lita to perform the Parley action on her card.

Thematically parley is talking to the person. That's hard to do if you are in the attic and she is in the parlor.

Spoilers for the Resolutions of Scenario One

You do not need to Parley Lita in order to add her to your deck after the Scenario is done, although for Roland the price might be too high.

I also thought I'd point out, Act 2 can only be advanced by Investigators in the Hallway. If you're soloing Roland, it would be odd for him to be in the Attic with the Priest and Lita out (unless you REALLY want that location victory point).

If you turned in your clues from there, you broke the rule for Act 2, and the game is simply getting its revenge on you.
