Can someone help confirm or otherwise if I am playing this right..

I use one of the charges to fight with Shrivelling.

I draw a chaos token with a symbol on it, let's say it's the broken tablet symbol.

Do I resolve the test by applying the affect of that token, possibly change my my skill test value, (whatever the scenario says it does)AND apply one horror on top of that effect?

Or do I ignore the affect of that token, leaving my skill test value unchanged, and just apply one horror, and that's it??

If it's the latter, then I can see the card is hugely powerful really, as it negates the effects of the chaos symbols, (at the cost of taking a horror) but am I playing it right??

Yes.

That's how I see it, you resolve the check before apllying the shrivelling latest effect.

There's a breakdown of skill test timing on page 26 of the RRG. Referring to that, when you draw a token with one of the listed icons, you take the horror from revealing the symbol in ST.4.

Then you apply the modifier indicated by the scenario card to your skill test as normal in ST.5.

Specifics of timing aside you both take the horror and apply the modifier to your test as normal.

Even so, it's still powerful with Agnes. Even if the token causes you to fail, that horror still lets you apply one damage to someone (once per turn, anyway).
