I'm in the middle of episode 2 of my first new season and a thought occurred to me that I wouldn't mind some clarification on. The Enemy is known and the Goal is not. If your group is separated and group A discovers the Goal, is group B able to take actions as if the Goal is known?
My first inclination is no, because from a narrative standpoint group B wouldn't know the Goal if the other group discovered it, and since this is primarily a narrative game that logic makes the most sense.
Strictly rulewise, there's nothing to say they can't.
But I always play the narrative like you.
