I'm playing through the first scenario for the first time with the suggested decks, Wendy and Roland. Playing two handed solo. I'm just interested to hear if I'm getting this right in regards to the rules. Spoilers ahead.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Both Roland and Wendy are in the parlour. The Ghoul Priest is engaged with Roland. In addition, a Ghoul Minion and a Swarm of rats are engaged with Roland. He used all his three actions to fight the Ghoul Priest using 45 automatic. He also controls Lita so he puts 9 total damage on the monster during his turn thanks to lucky draws. It is my understanding that the other two enemies don't use opportunistic attacks as long as Roland is fighting something. Meanwhile, Wendy wants to engage the Ghoul Priest and attempt to evade him so he exhausts. That way she can play sneak attack for two damage and the kill. Is that a legit strategy given the situation? As she is not engaged with anything but at the same location, nothing attacks her when doing the engage action, right? So this is all within the rules?

Roland is in the parlor; presumably he passed an Intellect (4) test.

Our group refers to the Engage, Evade, Sneak Attack combination as the "Wendy Shuffle". We use it frequently.
