Just got the game and eager to get my first game in, but was wondering why the Cave doesn't choose the tile orientation after the Knight explores a dark tile. Seems to make thematic sense, but I'm sure there's a good reason. Apologies if this was asked and answered already ( I did try to look and found nothing). Thanks!

If the Cave chose the orientation, there would be no incentive to spend chits to rotate the tiles afterwards.

The Cave gets to choose (mostly) what shows up in Exploring, and Events, and offers its choice of Treasure...the Knight has to do something with her turn.

Mostly the reason is balance. The cave would be much too powerful.
