When you pay 3, you only get an additional skill check, and not also an additional bonus for being unopposed. So it's not possible to win a story in one go with Randolph Carter. (Source: FFG rules answer, http://www.fantasyfl...&efpag=0#702819)

Expensive, but a pretty good effect. Lets you win a story if you can nab it unopposed starting from 1 success, but probably requires some surprise, and getting up to 4/3/X on domains isn't easy.

Willpower and a good icon spread, with a good chance for toughness. 3 is expensive for the ability however, I think it would only be used to win a story, not to go to 4 tokens. At cost 4 I think you want some other dreamlands boosts there.

A poor man's Whitton green. Green is cheaper and can grab the additional success tokens without paying 3 and on both attack/defence.you could run both but personally I'd include an additional copy of green instead.
