Call for Judgment: Red Herring

This CFJ has no gamestate effect; as Kevan correctly notes, Ely’s looking for clues was manifestly illegal. Therefore the gamestate is as Kevan describes.

On the 5th of September, Ely salvaged a Victorian Ring, adding it to their inventory with an Uncertain Flag. However, the ruleset at the time said (and still says) “They shall then add to their possessions that Item with an Uncertain and a Damp Flag.”

On the 10th, Ely looked for Clues, selecting the Victorian Ring as a possible clue target. However, the clue rule requires the player to “select three different Items which have no Flags”, and the Ring should have had a Damp flag. Ely then Understood the Ring, in order to gain one Clue and lose two Sanity.

To resolve this issue, remove “A Victorian Ring” from Ely’s Clues, and give Ely back the 2 Sanity lost in Understanding it.

Well noticed. I was dubious about his using a pocket as a potential clue item, but its being an item is implied in “Eating and Sleeping”. You’re observation is indeed correct, however.

Fortunately, I don’t fall foul of this because I managed to choose 3 items which had been rescued from SS Haniver, rather than Salvaged items.
