I am the white void. I am the cold steel. I am the just sword.
No, you don't have to skip your turn to rest, you have to advance one of Sauron's story markers. See Page 20!
Yeah, I knew you had to advance Sauron's story marker, I guess I just assumed that since you were resting you skipped your turn as well. Well then, I guess that makes that one cheat in my favor and one cheat in Sauron's favor so far this game (I paid 2 favor to remove corruption without resting earlier).
