I've played 1e (actually the 1.5e from 2014) for years now, and I'm finally trying to wrap my head around 2e. I have two question on Elves and Shadow, I'm not sure how these two rule are to be handled:
1. High Elves of Rivendell - Beset By Woe "You can remove accumulated Shadow points exclusively during a Yule Fellowship Phase (see Spiritual Recovery in the core rules)". Does this mean that a High Elf of Rivendell can only remove 1-3 points of shadow, using Spiritual Recovery, in the last Fellowship Phase of the Year (the Yule FP)? Is the 1-3 points determined on the LAST Adventuring Phase, or an overview of the entire YEARS Adventuring phases?
2. Do Elves of Rivendell and Lindon have the ability to 'swallow' Shadow points for Shadow Scars? Or do their Shadow sub-rules preclude that? If so, do the High Elf of Rivendell and the Elf of Lindon have access to the Heal Scars Yule Fellowship Undertaking?
