Here's the situation:
ACTION: Exhaust CT to place up to 3 progress tokens...
FORCED: After CT exhausts, discard the top card of the encounter...
FORCED: Before placing progress tokens on TP, the first player must make a locate test.
Does the Cave Torch have to resolve first? Or can the first player choose the order the FORCED effects resolve in?
I'm leaning towards the CT effect having to resolve first based on the fact that it is triggered by the cost of the action, whereas the TP effect is triggered prior to the resolution of the action.
This can make a difference if you have some scouting ability. I would prefer being able to choose the order of resolution.
What's your take on this?
