I won pretty handily as the OL last night by doing this on quest 3 in the original quests, but im pretty sure it was a broken play so its probably not allowed and I just couldn't find anywhere in the rules that says I cant do this.

p. 13, under "Doors," where it says "Important: Monsters cannot open any door leading to an unrevealed area."

However, monsters can open and close doors to areas you have already been in (or had the OL read from). As an OL, I will have a monster close a door if I have a "door trap" card in my hand to play.

Another strategy that I see (but have not used) is to shut a door so that the OL can spawn monsters on the other side.

On mission 1, area 2 has two doors leading in to it. If the heroes went to area 2 through area 3, I might have some monsters open the door between area 1 and 2 to go around back and attack the heroes from behind.

Note, however, that only NAMED monsters can open/close rune-locked doors.
