When it says to spend a gem to draw cards equal to my number of distress tokens, I'm assuming I can do this at any time during my turn... Sooooo...
1) Can I spend my cards, then use this to get more cards and keep going?
.......1a) Can I spend an amount of influence (cards) as intent, use the mask to increase the cards I haven't spent yet (to my hand limit), and then take from those new cards to add to the amount of total intent involved in an intended action?
2) Were I to be at (or near) my hand limit when I use the mask ability, do I have to discard cards in order to draw more (to stay under my limit), or does this mask ability temporarily ignore my max hand size limit during this time?
3) ...Does this mean this ability ceases to be use-able after the 6th distress token?
