Re: Ballot Item # 13 - The White Tree {erratum}

The person who proposed this errata doesn't understand how active conditions work. They also don't understand how the CRF or ICE rulings work.

The Challenge Deck version is correct.

Re: Placement of Cards “off to the side” (Clarification)

Is it from Balrog big manual (I have access only to the Balrog booklet)? Yes, If it is actually the most recent rule, then this means the change of paradigm. From: "Cards placed off to the side are [always] in play for the purposes of uniqueness." to: "Cards placed off to the side ar...

Re: Helm of her Secrecy

I get it. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Most things don't matter when both players play the same way. The rules are too long and spread out to really be able to check on something in the middle of the game unless you already know where it is. I'd just play first, remember your questions, and l...

Re: Helm of her Secrecy

is there a difference between a strike from a ringwraith character vs a strike from a ringwraith hazard or auto-attack? Helm of Her Secrecy says " if the attack is a Nazgul ." The word "Nazgul" and the word "Ringwraith" are different words and there is no rule equating...

Re: Curiosity: Wisdom to Wield on FW's Orc or Troll

One of these actually appears on the card text. One of these runs against the concept of race given in the printed rules, as well as all precedent of characters from Tolkien's world that are actually multiracial NOT being multiple races in MECCG. First of all, I'm not saying that the character has ...

Re: Special Orc & Troll Rules for Fallen Wizards: hero permanent-events

The "main effect" being desired by the player is the general case. The Designer sets the cost based on what they thought the value of the "main effect" would be to the player. It doesn't matter what the player actually desires, but the "main effect" is still the desire...

Re: Question about keying to specific regions.

This this case, Adunaphel is keyed to Western Mirkwood, a region name. Keying to a region name (point 2) and keying to a region type (point 4) are two different alternatives for keying creatures as listed under "Playing and Drawing Cards", hazard cards, creature cards. Elven Cloak specific...

Re: Special Orc & Troll Rules for Fallen Wizards: hero permanent-events

The rules do not allow a player to take actions at whim. This goes back to the Hi Ho Cherry-o principle again -- the children know not to steal cherries from another child's bucket. The rules do not have to prevent stealing. It is sufficient for the rules to not allow it. This is how games are desig...

Re: Special Orc & Troll Rules for Fallen Wizards: hero permanent-events

So when describing the "costs" that are paid to play the card, the term "main effect" can only refer to the desired effects that the player is paying for. Rules are desire-agnostic. Player may desire both discarding an event and cc-2, when he is playing Marvels Told. Or only fir...

Re: Special Orc & Troll Rules for Fallen Wizards: hero permanent-events

May help to accept the idea that "tap" may be either active condition condition or main effect. I can tell that you completely misunderstand what a "main effect" of a card is because tapping is NEVER a "main effect" of a resource card. I wonder if you are considering &...

Re: Special Orc & Troll Rules for Fallen Wizards: hero permanent-events

Rather I see a difference. But there is no basis for this difference in the rules and it causes the game to not work. So this understanding must be wrong. If main effect of the action is "discard the item" then condition may not be "discard the item". "Discard the item"...

Re: Special Orc & Troll Rules for Fallen Wizards: hero permanent-events

You are making up a discrepancy between " your company there: bears an item " and " discard the item ." But there's no reason to suggest that " your company there: bears an item " is some separate active condition (causing resolution to fail per Annotation 7) rather tha...

Re: Firstborn/Durin's Folk reprint (along with Nortern Waste)?

Don't worry Vastor. These cards don't actually have to be playable. Most of us just want to collect them. Funny that you say it but you are partially correct with that statement. :D Of course it will be a nice bonus if they are actually playable as well. Yes, Vastor is an expert at finding and cajo...
