Re: (Easy way of) killing of Spider of the Môrlat (?)

Very virulent.

Or maybe the Spider of the Morlat's lesser attacks represent that it is less powerful when wandering around the countryside smelling flowers and eating hundreds of butterflies and not in its own lair, to which it retreats when threatened?

Re: Secrets deeply buried

The lack of explicitly overruling that it is out of play for purposes of uniqueness leads me to believe that the uniqueness rules should still apply. Otherwise, for example, Bad Company would allow Fallen-Wizards to play 9 mind Troll characters.

Re: 2019 Charter Revision

#1: I would expect continuity to be helpful. Having overlap in terms aids this. If anything, I'd be more in favor of more overlapping terms than fewer, but obviously longer terms or more frequent voting wouldn't be ideal either. #4: The proposal would fail at the stated goal of preventing hordes of ...

Re: Spider of the Morlat

Thematically, I think it makes sense that a good hero company scourging the forests of Morlat spiderlings (prompting the hazard player to return the card to hand, or, *gasp* defeating the spiders) would be adequate cause for reducing the numerousness of spiders more globally (losing the +1 strike bo...

Re: Creatures played as an automatic-attack (playabilty conditions)

It might be ambiguous based on whether you parse Framsburg as: ... keyable to {(a Ruins & Lairs), (Shadow-hold), (single Wilderness), or (Shadow-land)}. (would permit Wild Fell Beast) vs. ... keyable to a {(Ruins & Lairs), (Shadow-hold), (single Wilderness), or (Shadow-land)}. (would not permit Wild...

Re: Fallen-wizards using characters with > 5 mind.

Also, I believe that it is possible for a FW player to play 6+ mind agent characters as hazard agents. Is that correct? If so, am i right in thinking that a "hazard agent" would not be a "character" under the 5-mind-limit rule? Correct. I would prefer: "Fallen-wizards may not play under his control...

Re: Spider of the Morlat

Beyond believing that the proposed errata would go against the intentions of ICE as made explicit in METB, it is (in my opinion) unnecessary and overpowered. There are only two permanent events in the game that create attacks during the movement/hazard phase. As a permanent event, this means the att...

Re: Creatures played as an automatic-attack (playabilty conditions)

If I did have any fustration, it would be that I tried to agree with you and see it your way, (which I already did once while we were playing), and then on the forum in discussion, and you just shot me down, and I was agreeing with you. Is this again about whether Adunaphel can be used as automatic...

Re: Creatures played as an automatic-attack (playabilty conditions)

My impression is that "normally" typically means "as allowed in the base rules and as written on the specific individual card." If we differ on that front, I can look into pulling up relevant quotes. But assuming that basis... Since I have new evidence to believe that we are not on the same basis h...

Rez, how about you read this when you've cooled down a little. There are two more things you need to wrap your head around: A. Normally playable, or Normally be playable B.

Re: Bring Our Curses Home + Ahunts

On that front, my impression is that most court systems have a concept of precedent setting standards. I think it is the responsibility of the legislature to create/clarify rules when needed to overcome standards that do not align with legislating intent, original or new. --- If there is no creature...

Re: Non-RW Company (ex. Heedless)

(3) Mixed companies, i.e., those including at least one ringwraith character and at least one non-ringwraith character are considered ringwraith companies. Therefore, they cannot be targeted by the first use of Heedless Revelry. This indicates that the status quo for Heedless Revelry does care abou...

Re: Non-RW Company (ex. Heedless)

In turn my question is would the first part of Heedless Revelry be playable against a Balrog Company? It would not be playable against a The Balrog company. I believe the replacement (and Heedless Revelry) refer to the presence of the characters, not player alignment. This interpretation would also...

Re: Creatures played as an automatic-attack (playabilty conditions)

Of additional importance: A creature "played at a site in" a region is the same as being "keyed to" the site by name. The site keyability of cards like Adunaphel is thus based on name, whereas for cards like Corsairs of Umbar it is based on symbol. The automatic-attacks are never based on name, so A...
