HI!?? I believe the context is you're playing the solitaire game? If so, you only get reprieve if you defeat a monster. IIRC, if you defeat a monster, then go into the Dungeon without defeating a monster, you refill AND advance in that case.
I have a doubt about "Alone in the Dark".
If I defeat a monster, I refill the hall normally and monsters do not advance this turn, but in the NEXT turn If I go to the village they advance, right?
