"Summons from Long Sleep", from the "Against the Shadow" set.

The challenge deck version, although including the errata, is missing the eye of Sauron at the bottom right :

just went over these again - main difference for these challenge deck "Lure of " cards is that : opponent makes the roll to remove these - was that ever discussed as offical errata ? or did I just not care enough to remember it back in the days

Previously the character made the roll, which was difficult and led to a lot of bent cards when players used heavy dice.

Now when you play Lures you let your opponent do the rolling instead of their character.

My interpretation is that "opponent" is referring to the opponent of the hazard player (the player who played the card), i. e. the opponent is the player whose character is affected. This would be in line with the regular handling of rolls: The player intending to have a benefit (defeating a strike, passing a corruption test etc) is the one who has to make the roll, and the higher the better. The hazard player is not the one aiming at a high roll in this case.

5 cards from the spanish starter set feature illustrations from local artists. Here are their 'anglicized' versions remade from the original material and a bit of Photoshop magic, plus the spanish promo "Wolf-riders" from the Dragons expansion :

I finally realized the joke you were making. Made me laugh.

"Shadow-cloak" from MELE. The Dark-domain symbol [-me_dd-] was erroneously replaced with the Dark-hold [-me_dh-] one, but only in the original english version:
