Default Looted cards move where?

So when someone dies and their body is looted... Do the looted cards go into each respective looters hands or can they be played immediately?

I ask this because we ran into a situation where 2 players were trying to run from 4 dogpiled monsters.

The first player failed to run from the first creature, but used a card to transfer the bad stuff to the second player

The second player automatically died as a result.

Can the first player loot the second player's corpse and immediately use an item (a new steed with a bonus to run away) to help him escape from the other three creatures?

Default Re: Looted cards move where?

They go into the hand, which would trigger any cards which are allowed to be played as soon as you get them according to the rules and the instructions in the Critical Links and Useful Information sticky.

According to that info, Items can't be played while in combat (and by extension Running Away), even under the as soon as you get them rule. So no, a steed couldn't be played if you looted it.

If the other player had an Elf card in their hand when they died, you could loot and play that for its run away bonus, though.
