Re: 2d edition rules to consider

Now I'm curious where Logain got his list. I recently found this one for the non-santioned Type 1.5 tournament at the 1999 Council of Lorien North American Championships: As some of you may know, we are currently in the process of revising MECCG, and this tournament will showcase some of the new rul...

Re: Discard White Tree/Stone of Erech upon Leaving Site?

There is no reason to discard them (White Tree / Stone of Erech). These phrases specify when the events may be played. Permanent events are normally only discarded for reasons stated on their card, or "When a card is discarded, so are all permanent-events on that card."-CRF, but as you noted these t...

Re: Doubled Vigilance

Well... "or is playable during strike sequence" would mean it needn't be completely passive. Second Darkness Wielded cancel would work too... if "latter" meant "later".

Re: When an Attack is Created...

Back to rezwit's original point with Wizard's Flame... There is perhaps more to rezwit's thinking that I initially believed. A friend recently pointed out the following: *** An effect that states that it reduces the prowess of an attack must be played before the strikes are assigned. But this would ...

Re: Thrall of the Voice: Character Play Restrictions

Not a useful example; returning a character that you played to your hand at the end of the organization phase because of exceeded GI has nothing to do with the mechanics for playing the character. Except that this is a rule for bringing characters into play. Same as the Homesite restriction rule. S...

Re: Thrall of the Voice: Character Play Restrictions

Theo, your dog and cat example is hard to follow. But my understanding from the linked post is that you believe that Thrall would allow you to play a character at any site (regardless of it being a Haven, or the characters home site). Is that right? But even the "Golden child", A Chance Meeting, ne...

Re: Thrall of the Voice: Character Play Restrictions

Right, right; memory lapse on A Chance Meeting. Previously comment relevant to WHCtK GI only. ____ And, I don't know if this has been discussed, but presumably Thrall cannot be played with a "normal" character to reduce their mind, due to its use of "instead of". I see your rationale, but I disagree...

Re: Thrall of the Voice: Character Play Restrictions

If one respects the language used on the cards rather than making up their own game using them, Thrall of the Voice is a very different card from Open to the Summons. Anyway, Chris, what is your logic for allowing Thrall to change where agents may be played but not to change where non-agents may be ...

Re: Actions created by playing an item

Any card that has the potential to immediately create an attack is considered an attack for purposes of interpreting CRF Annotation 15. This would prevent any item that creates a trap attack from being played during an existing chain of effects. I assume "after" means "immediately after"... otherwi...

Re: Icy Touch (clarification)

@ Theo - Do I have that right? This was not answered. Please confirm. I was refraining from speaking for Konrad, but I would read your example as conforming to his latest proposal. Also... is this the only corruption card that has this problem? Any placed corruption currently can be stacked on the ...

Re: Deeper Shadow

Consider e.g. Dunnish Clan-Hold starter movement. The middle wilderness could have been inspired by either Hollin or Cardolan. The movement is deliberately ambiguous about which paths the company might be taking. Thematically, I can see starter movement allowing a company to avoid the dangers normal...

Any placed corruption currently can be stacked on the same character in one turn, in addition to another corruption card played. Example: 3x Nazgul attacks, each with Morgul Knife.

Re: Witch-king of Angmar

Even with CoE #31 "If a short event's text doesn't indicate a duration for its effect, the effect lasts until the end of the turn", we wouldn't want the characters untapped by Where There's a Whip to be retapped at the end of the turn.

Re: Deeper Shadow

In starter movement only first and last region symbols are tied to named regions. I would argue this; the region symbols in starter movement site path are derived from the site's site path field, and the named regions that may be keyed to are independently derived from the origin and destination si...

Re: A Panoply of Wings

For what it is worth, CoE #21 interpreted this as an end of turn duration.
