- Q: If you draw Mysterious Chanting while all investigators are locked away in the Hidden Library with no passageways, no cultist can qualify to be the "nearest", since it doesn't connect to anything. Nonetheless, even though you can't place doom on the "nearest" cultist, they are still in play, so does Mysterious Chanting oblige you to search for a cultist? A: Not exactly. Even if it has no valid path to an investigator, an enemy can still qualify as the "nearest" enemy if there are no other enemies in play that are nearer. It might help to think of it this way: an enemy at a location with no valid path to your location is – in essence – an infinite number of locations away. If there were any other enemy anywhere, even if it were 100 locations away, that would be nearer. But if there were no other enemies in play, then that enemy an infinite number of locations away would still be the nearest. That said, effects that require an enemy to track a path to an investigator (such as Dance of the Yellow King, for example) would fail in this circumstance, because the enemy cannot possibly track a path to you, even if they are the "nearest" enemy.
