Does The Barque Miskatonic (strange that it's an Agency card, not Miskatonic) allow exhausted characters to commit to stories?

I am pretty sure the answer is no. I haven't found an explicit reference yet, but in the lotr lcg, an equivalent effect has been ruled to not allow exhausted characters to quest.


Also, from the rulebook page 9, on committing to stories: The active player decides which of his ready characters in play will commit to which of the three stories, and then commits all of those characters to the three story cards at one time.


We know that exhausting is normally a cost of committing and that this card removes that cost. But this rules text also seems to make being ready a requirement of committing, so exhausted ones can't commit, even if committing wouldn't require exhausting (which is essentially the same text and reason for the lotr ruling).

Seems like a reasonable interpretation.  Thanks, RP.
