Re: Wizard's Trove as Quest Bypass?

You are claiming Wizard's Trove is somehow special, that it (and it alone of permanent events?) creates its own play allowance, despite not being a short-event, and despite having the same phrasing as several other short-events which for some reason do not create their own allowance despite you say...

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

Ah right. I was thinking of during the strike sequence, not between.

On the other hand, one could also argue that returning the card to your hand at that point does not disassociate the card from being treated as a defeated creature and placed in MP pile, so what would be the point.

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

Aside - can't you return the Spider of Morlat to your hand after 2 strikes? (Before the 3rd). I don't believe so. The attack has already been created, so returning it to your hand does not affect the attack, so you are not allowed to do it. Annotation 17: The only actions that may be declared durin...

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

I'm on the same page as Konrad. I've attempted to "earnestly study this matter" and found no rules texts that would override the quoted The Balrog clarification. It stipulates three requirements for its implication: card is a hazard permanent event card indicates "kill" marshalling points card has a...

Re: Fallen Wizard use of characters

So " using hero item resource card by a Ringwraith player" is considered as exception from "only Wizard players may include hero characters, resources, and sites in their decks." Sure, in that instance. Rules Digest 43 specifically refers to a different instance. Try to obey it consistently, or mak...

Re: Snake Eyes for CC rolls

If this was inspired by our game (which I hope so, given the timing!), the question I was considering was "what are the odds of getting 2 on a CC TWICE (or more) in one game?" I do like thinking about things like this. Your estimate of 30-40 corruption checks per game seems pretty high to me. I mean...

Re: Cancel Attack (conundrum)

At the "strikes are assigned" point. Annotation 13: An attack may not be canceled once its strikes have been assigned. A strike may not be canceled once the dice-roll for the strike has been made. In terms of your original question: Real simple, I announce Ambusher, I ask for Cancel he says no (I go...

Fallen Wizard use of characters

Perusing old mailings, I found this interesting statement : Thrall specifically allows you to have a six mind character in the starting company. They are still forbidden in the deck even as agent hazards. Since this would invalidate both of the Fallen Wizard decks that made it to finals in this year...

Re: Cancel Attack (conundrum)

My impression is that the complete order should be something like: You announce Ambusher card opponent gets a chance to respond you get a chance to respond (alternate additional chances to respond if either responded until both players don't respond in succession) Ambusher card resolves (assuming it...

Re: Do Through Search and Bounty of the Hoard target a site?

Awesome, I hadn't seen these old mailings before. But here's some more reasoning: According the the White Hand rule Supplement, "In order to play a non-Fallen-Wizard resource that would _normally_ tap the site, either the site and resource must be hero card or they must both be minion cards." The ke...

Re: Wizard's Trove as Quest Bypass?

I am similarly confused. Sleepless Malice is a great example of one way to achieve one additional hazard without phrasing it in terms of a play. These literal sentences follow the same general structure: Wizard's Trove: "You may play The White Tree at one of your Wizardhavens [ [-me_ha-] ] if Saplin...

Re: +1 Tapping to Support

Does anyone have any documention, that is a possible clarification for this quote in the rulebook? An untapped character that is not the target of a strike may tap to support a character in the same company that is the target of a strike That essentially discusses that is assigned is the same as wa...

Re: Wizard's Trove as Quest Bypass?

So it is because The White Tree is particularly named? Otherwise why can't "play an additional hazard" be interpreted as replacing the playability condition of that hazard? If a given card has nothing to replace, that means there is no replacement effect, which is an allowed possibility of "any" tur...

Re: Cave Troll: Balrog Specific?

On the other hand, I haven't found any Balrog update to: Minion resources have a blue-grey metal background while hero resources have a copper metal background. At least the Balrog has: “Balrog specific” cards may be included. Such cards may only be included in a Balrog player’s deck. “Balrog specif...
