or do they go face down on the table? If I’m not the one that played the card, and I get a card that way, do I get to know what it is? Does it count towards the Hand Limit? Is it affected by “in hand” effects (Revelations of Azathoth, Dream Thief, etc.)?
A: Let’s start by reading the (pertinent) text on Dreams And Omens: “You decide who gets which, placing them each face down in front of their recipients. No one else may look at these cards.
Do they go into players’ hands or face down on the table? See: “…placing them face down in front of their recipients. No one else may look at these cards.” They’d probably end up seeing the card if they put it into their hand, right? They’re not allowed to see the card, so it really can’t be put into their hand. Also, it would be hard to remember which is the card they need to play before their next turn begins. In short: each player’s card is placed face down in front of them, and it remains there until played. It never goes in their hands.
If you didn’t play the Action, do you get to know what you got? See: “No one else may look at these cards.” So, no, unless you are psychic and can know what card it is without looking, you do not know the identity of this card if you were not the person who played Dreams and Omens.
Does it count towards the Hand Limit? Is it affected by “in hand” effects? The card never enters players hands, so it does not affect Hand Limit, nor can it be affected by any of these cards.
