I realize that in Fallen London, a red bordered opportunity card means that once clicked, it is immediately played, and cannot be ignored.
But it seems that every red opportunity card I play leads to bad dreams and regrets.
It appears to be one of the more benign cards I've encountered, but this an example of what I always seem to find (probably contains some minor spoilers):
This is the card and initial description.
And this is the result.
Am I missing a deeper purpose to these items, or are they just a waste of my time?
Do red Opportunity cards ever lead to positive results, or should I just avoid them?
