One of our investigators I1 was lost in time and space. Then, another investigator I2 got a dark pact triggered, and the effect was "Another investigator of your choice is devoured".
1) Can I1 be targeted by I2's dark pact effect?
2) If 1), would I2 actually be devoured? The text says that an investigator lost in time and space cannot be affected by anything.
We reason two things:
a) the wording means that I2 could be targeted but not affected by the devouring
b) given the general theme and the unspoken rule that "if there are various interpretations of a rule in a cooperative game, choose the least helpful", it feels like a loophole that breaks the rules. Therefore, we chose another investigator to be devoured
We chose b). Did we choose "right"?
