The text on "set things ablaze" goes as follows:

Discard 2 furniture tiles in your Room.
Put a fire token in this Room.
If there are no LECTERNS or other Heroes in this room, score 4 points.

(There are a few other cards in the game that similarly state that a certain amount of furniture pieces should be removed and then list a condition for scoring points.)

The basic question is: Do I simply go through all the steps in order or does the condition apply to the initial state of the room?

Octavia is a in a room with two lecterns, a carpet and a chest. She plays "Set things ablaze" and removes the two lecterns.

The way we've played this so far she would score four points, since by the time the condition is checked, there are no lecterns in the room.

Is this the way it is intended, or would she score zero points (which would dramatically affect how powerful "set things ablaze" is)?

Hey Eike! Happy new year!

You play it exactly as intended!
If there isn't any Lectern left in the room after burning, you gain the points as intended.
Enjoy playing in the cinders guys!
