1. First question is the fear card in my deck . Does that have any effect at all or does it just gum up my deck?
2. When I do receive fear and damage and I can present them and choose to take the deer face down for instance what is the difference between it being face up ? In other words does fear down or up still count against my limit ? The example is Aragorn was dealth 3 fear and two damage. I blocked 2 fear amd 1
Damage from test. Travel Garb stopped damage. His Brooch allowed him to suffer last fear fave-down. So what does that mean? Thanks
1. Do you mean the "Weakness" card? If so, yes it is a weakness in that you will sometimes draw it during a test, and it will be a wasted draw. It is a useless card added to your skill deck. It has no other effect than that, though that could change later.
2. Damage and Fear are dealt one at a time face up, unless specified to be dealt face down. If dealt face up, you resolve the text on the card before drawing and resolving the next card.
Some damage cards (for example, Weariness) and fear cards (for example, Gloom) are resolved by merely turning them face down. Other damage and fear cards remain face up and impose and ongoing condition until removed or turned face down.
Hope that helps.
