Re: New to the game and have some questions.

I don't see how you can "play with Crown" and "play on Sun" simultaneously. :? The simultaneity seems fine to me. A link in a chain simultaneously attaches two other links; one cannot attach either link before the other, or else it isn't truly attached. I guess I'm assuming a simple O link. :roll:

Re: Traitor

The idea of the card has been changed - an attack is created but character is no longer an attacking entity. The character was never the attacking entity, just the traitor. The attack is "by" the Traitor card, which the CRF erratas to take on the race of the traitor. I still support the proposal, w...

Fireworks: "except Wellinghall" is fabricated. See http://www.councilofelrond.org/forum/vi ... ks&start=0 for example.

Re: Creature playability interactions

I see how that would be consistent with wording that meant, "Undead creatures gain the phrase, 'May also be played at [Under-vaults].'" There are specific rules about how creatures specify their ability to be played through normal hazard creature play mechanics. There would be nothing about that phr...

Re: Creature playability interactions

Under the "'play' means ignore all the normal rules for play" bandwagon, I think this means you can attack yourself with your own undead hazards for easy trophies. Those Wisps of Pale Sheen sure have a nice... sheen. I'm joking. Only sort of though. Otherwise, the second automatic attacks do use the...

Re: Dark Numbers and Facing and Attack

Hmm, I would think Dark Numbers would have to be (at least) the first player-declared action following the attack for it to be considered immediately following the attack. So using Halfling Strength or Cram would prevent Dark Numbers. What I feel more hesitant about is whether other triggered chains...

Re: New to the game and have some questions.

I don't think Echo of All Joy is written as asking whether the resource it is played on thinks that Doors of Night is in play, but rather it does a check for Doors of Night for itself. "Play (on a resource) (if Doors of Night is not in play)." Or possibly even, "Play (on (a resource if Doors of Nigh...

Re: New to the game and have some questions.

Konrad's interpretation matches mine. Echo of All Joy cannot see the Doors of Night from inside the Crown of Flowers. No problems. The concerns Vastor voiced seem to have been that both (1) Echo of All Joy cannot be played because of Doors of Night, and (2) Echo of All Joy cannot be in play because ...

Re: New to the game and have some questions.

To go back to the Withered Heath example, if the only Wilderness you are moving through is Withered Heath and your opponent keys to Wilderness, then you can change the Withered Heath Wilderness to prevent Wargs from resolving. The Wargs cannot be rekeyed to the Borderland. But to Konrad's point, the...

Re: Creature playability interactions

Sounds good to me. Agburanar keyed to Grey Mountain Narrows is not the same as Agburanar keyed to [-me_sl-]. I suppose I was uncertain because of the precedent set by detainment attack determination, where keying to a region by name *is* treated as keying to the region's symbol. But I haven't seen a...

Creature playability interactions

I'm wondering about how cards that specify additional playability of hazard creatures based on keyability of those creatures interact with creatures that specify playability in their text. --- Example #1: Can Agburanar be played keyed to Rhudaur if both Angmar Arises and Doors of Night is in play be...

Visiting Montreal

Heading to Montreal for a conference December 2-9. I expect to be quite busy, but meeting up one of the evenings could offer some much needed variety from the week, within transportation limits. Anyone in that area?
