Re: Middle-earth: The Necromancer

My cards arrived in the mail yesterday, and I have to say that the DC team really outdid themselves this time! It's a beautiful set, and I am especially impressed by the player guide, which is incredibly detailed in game advice and lore. Amazing job, and thank you all!

Re: Middle-earth: The Necromancer

I recall from First Folk printing that many times the cards were not shrink-wrapped in precise order -- so there would be 2 copies of a card next to each other, for example, and the third would be somewhere else in the stack. Perhaps that's what's happened? Also, got my notification from DHL today -...

Re: Univeral Rules Document

It will incorporate past relevant Rulebooks, CRF, ICE Digests, and NetRep Digests. It is meant to be a “one stop shop” for MECCG rules which I think would be a wonderful thing for the MECCG community. Amen to that! Thank you for all of your and the rest of the team's efforts to pull this together -...

Re: How do hazard creatures which create persistent effects work?

The ruling seems to only apply to "resource permanent-events". Why be so specific if it was meant to apply more broadly? I don't think this applies to resource short-events (e.g. Secret Entrance), let alone hazard effects like Chill Douser or Uruk-lieutenant.

Re: How do hazard creatures which create persistent effects work?

I have a related question which pertains to Creature cards such as Chill Douser, which affect a company: Chill Douser Hazard: Creature Undead. Three strikes. Unless Chill Douser's attack is canceled, all Undead attacks against the company for the rest of the turn receive +1 strike and +1 prowess. Un...

Re: roadblock cards

Any player can interpret the rules any way he or she wants, but it doesn't mean anyone else will play with them. The purpose of this forum, rules gurus like Konrad, and the extensively-documented democratic protocol for proposing and passing rules errata and clarifications is to create a common mean...

Re: Cave Troll: Balrog Specific?

it has the Balrog-specific border color. I believe you are conflating a difference in print quality/color control between sets with an intended difference in the border itself.

Huh, it's missing the quatrefoil design which normally sits at the bottom of the lefthand bar, below where the mind and DI stats appear.

Re: Updating Magic Set Editor

On a completely different note, one thing that's always bugged me about the design is the slight overlap of the artwork with the frame in the upper left-hand corner. I find it slightly jarring that the artwork sits in front of the frame, which seems to be accentuated in your remastered versions. Was...

Re: Updating Magic Set Editor

I vote for color option on the right, represented by the Black Horse card. My reasoning is that more contrast is generally better, which in this case is the option that is furthest from the dark gray color of hazards.

Re: Updating Magic Set Editor

I agree that a touch more purple (i.e. more red) would be good. Also, have you tried giving the frame a bit of texture? It seems to me that the original cards have a bit of texture to the minion frame, as though the metal were pitted a bit with corrosion (the way old wrought iron looks, sort of).
