Though, I'm still trying to determine the usefulness of agents themselves.
Using Agents well is one of the trickiest things in the game, but they're devastating when so used (not even counting broken cards like Pilfer).

Re: SoF vs Assassin (Trolling)

Exactly OFF TOPIC AGAIN ... Errors left in&out intentionally in prior post, i.e. not throwing in exceptional cases such as HL reduced, etc... ON and ON and ON... It's like when someone posts a question in this FORUM, why does that POST become OFF topic every-time ? Ignoring the fact that this quest...

Re: New to the game and have some questions.

No. It comes into play as other site cards from Location Deck. Buhr Widu does not say "This site never taps", so company at the site cannot play unlimited number of resources without carrying about its tapped/untapped state and the site is vulnerable to effects like that from Long Winter. But a hav...

Re: New to the game and have some questions.

Well, yes, but what FW is going to do that instead of Hidden Havening it? :)

Re: New to the game and have some questions.

Actually, by most standards of the language I know, you play Marvels Told to get rid of a permanent event. Tapping a Sage and making corruption checks are just side effects of the goal, not goals unto themselves.

Re: Govern the Storms

As a side note: I am not arguing for how the card was intended to be played, merely how it would be played based on the text it currently has. A far more straightforward solution than several pages of argument would be to simply add "Playable on a sorcery-using character" to the beginning of the car...

Re: Govern the Storms

1) The corruption check is made when the cancellation happens. The difference between Govern and Goldberry is that Goldberry taps to initiate an effect, while playing the card initiates Govern. 2) Whether it's wanted is irrelevant. The corruption check is made when the cancellation happens. 3) So lo...

Re: Govern the Storms

Thanks for clarifying. Unfortunately, it still runs headlong into the other pair of rules quotes: Condition, Active: A prerequisite for an action actively made by a player. Typically this involves tapping a character, discarding an item, or having a character of a particular skill in play. Meeting a...

Re: Govern the Storms

Old Friendship was declared to be played by Frodo. I find no indication anywhere that this happens or is even necessary. The CRF quote above doesn't work for you? How would it make sense for the character playing a card to change part way through the play of the card? Just because you have a friend...

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

You're misunderstanding. Dol Amroth's attack exists or does not depending on whether the company entering the site is overt or not. But the attack itself has clearly defined attributes and no special ability as such. A special ability on an automatic-attack (say, the Balrog's special ability to remo...

That is correct. Every Elf character you have in play is yours.

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

I would say because until you are facing an attack, none of its abilities apply -- including any abilities that define the attack itself.
