Re: New to the game and have some questions.

My guess is they put it in there to hedge their bets if it ever came up.

Re: The Under-gates

There are also problems with Forewarned is Forearmed. I would suggest rather "If a manifestation of the Balrog is in play or has been defeated (or eliminated), this automatic-attack is removed." Just to make it clear that there is no attack whatsoever, and to handle cases of character/ally manifesta...

Re: Facing Auto Attack repeatedly in a turn?

That's the can of worms. Repeating step 3 might require repeating step 2 per the combat rules. The turn summary indicates that each company follows the process once, but this does not allow for multiple item/ally/faction resource plays on the same turn.

If you're willing to add Rebuild the Town and Fireworks, you could take the party to the Stones and get lots of Palantiri.

Re: FW Saruman Deck - Looking for advice

Ah. Is it only those cards, or are other cards allowed?

Re: FW Saruman Deck - Looking for advice

Questions:

1) Is this for a standard two-deck game?
2) Do you have a sideboard?
3) What exactly is the deck trying to accomplish, that you're using FW Saruman?

Re: Facing Auto Attack repeatedly in a turn?

Wow. Looking up the answer to this question may unlock a can of worms. Combat normally occurs when one of three things happen: · When a creature hazard is played on a company. · When a company at a site with an automatic-attack decides to attempt to play a resource card for that site (i.e., decides ...

Re: Discarding Stage Resources & Their Ripple Effects

The play of certain cards can change the type of sites that your companies may use (e.g. Plotting Ruin, Heart Grown Cold, etc.). When this happens, immediately exchange any affected site cards already in play with the corresponding site cards of the proper type. A fallen-wizard's non-overt companie...

Re: Agents

The biggest thing about agents is making sure they can get where you need them to go. Agents do no good if they're on the other side of the map from the action.

Re: Carambor

You can't move to an additional site if you didn't move to a site in the first place. There's no valid site, in that case, to add to.

Re: RIVER on-guard

With the idea that since only one of the conditions says "potentially," the others get a free pass? :) In that case, reveal it all you want: as soon as it actually forces a company to do nothing in the site phase, it was illegal to have revealed it. :) (And, as I mentioned in the other thread, too l...

Re: RIVER on-guard

If there's any confusion, sure. However, you can't reveal a card that forces a company to do nothing during the site phase, anyway.

Re: Skill cards target character with skill

When you have to jump through hoops to avoid "a condition is not an action," you're already on shaky ground. You're also confusing the enactor of an action with the entity the action plays out through. When driving a car, by law, a license is required, as is a driver, but neither is the entity throu...

Re: Skill cards target character with skill

Tapping a card can be an action. It also can be an active condition. It is never both. This is where we differ. I say: tapping a card satisfies the definition for a action as given in the MELE: "any activity in the game". Thus tapping is always an action. There can also be active conditions that th...
