0 cost.. it is the right price but the effects just doesn't appeal to me. Dare I say "Unplayable?" :P

I think it is a really interesting card and I like what it offers.  I do feel it will be more quest specific though since some quests like to make adding progress in the staging area a bad experience.

Useful for all those Locations that have a nasty Travel effect and you want them cleared. But then you can simply use Thror's Key. It shines when the quest includes a low Threat/ high Quest points Location that you have just traveled to and the Encounter deck spits a nasty Location with an ongoing effect. But then again, Thror's Map fixes that too (unless the active location has a nasty effect you don't want to be triggered from the staging area).


Nah, this card is a location management tool when you don't have access to the Spirit sphere, that's what it is.

Yeah--it's not a bad card but it's very Quest-specific. I don't think it finds a slot in any general purpose deck. But if you're Quest Building then it will help you get around some nasty travel and location effects in a couple of Quests.
