Altar of Fire because you can use it more, and since it's not unique you can conceivably use it three times (assuming three copies in play) in one intrigue win. I hate playing against this location, while I can tolerate the occasional Confession.

Confession has the element of surprise though. Your opponent knows you have the location, but does not know you have the event. The Altar of Fire also costs gold which could be spent elsewhere. Altar of Fire requires you to win a challenge with a certain type of character, while confession only needs to kneel them or pay 3 influence.

It just depends on what works better in your deck. One may be better in one deck, while the other is vastly superior in another because of how it is set up. ex: House of Dreams with The Red Keep would obviously want to event because they can easily pay for the influence rather than using up their characters.

You can't have The Red Keep as your HoD location, because House of Dreams only works with in-house locations.

I'd do Altar of Fire unless you find yourself only using it once or twice a game. I somehow doubt that, lol. There is a certain point where it becomes useless to have Altar of Fire, though. Confession has the added advantage of not being dependent on winning a challenge and is superior if you are not hitting Altar of Fire much in your average game.

Ah, you're right. I guess my friend always Building Seasons it and I just never notice.
