Re: When an Attack is Created...

I can only assume that "cards like Rank Upon Rank" are cards that give modifications under specific circumstances. I don't think it's cards that affect attacks, or else we have to assume that all cards that affect attacks are treated with passive condition process, which becomes untenable.

Re: When an Attack is Created...

The exact phrase on Gimli is "+2 prowess against Orcs."

In my mind, it isn't an action, just an effect that happens if the proper conditions are met. According to the CRF entry, though, it's treated like an action caused by a passive condition.

Re: Clarification #7

Many times, people confuse a strike succeeding with the result of a successful strike. Something that prevents the result does not also prevent the strike from succeeding. Thus, Sable Shield prevents the result of a successful strike (wounding), but effects which rely on the strike succeeding will s...

Re: When an Attack is Created...

Because once applied to an attack, bonus to prowess from FoFaR does not depend on presence of FoFaR card. This is only true if such bonuses were applied via an action. I would say that the language of FoFaR (and Minions Stir) does not create any action but establishes a continuous passive effect. I...

Re: Weak-willed Orcs are the best escape artists?

It fits with the intended mechanic, which is that you are punished more for getting a strong character imprisoned than a weak one. As for not making thematic sense, I don't think any of us would be here at this point if we felt the rules had to make thematic sense.

It has admittedly been close to two decades since I lived in France, but I had at least one trip thrown off by pure strikery. :)

There is a railway in France, right?
That was never in question. The question is whether those currently responsible for operating it are on strike any given week. :)

Re: Fallen Wizard MPs for Palantirs

Actually, the most MPs for the absolute minimal difficulty and risk belong to Radagast, Gandalf, and Pallando, who, be it noted, get their MPs out of havens anyway. They just aren't item MPs. And the 9 MPs granted by a quick trip to the Deep Mines far outstrips the 3 you get at one haven or the othe...

Re: Fallen Wizard MPs for Palantirs

Bane of the Ithil-Stone causes a storage check for a Minion Palantir to be made at 6. Even the 4 for a hero palantir is pretty drastic. And that's assuming you aren't playing any corruption on the 1-minder you see hanging around the haven. It gets even worse with Balance of Things. (Marvels Told, Ta...

Re: Fallen Wizard MPs for Palantirs

Wiping out a 1-mind squatter at a special site such that the player loses a Hidden Haven (or something) is totally worth it. Wiping out a 1-mind squatter at a normal haven? Probably a hazard waste, as it is easily replaceable. And thereby wiping out the Palantir, as well. And it's 3 MP per minion P...

Re: Fallen Wizard MPs for Palantirs

@ Theo: That just falls into the realm of play and counterplay; there are plenty of ways to wipe out the 1-mind squatter. And as things stand now, it doesn't even axe Gandalf's Palantir of MT. @ CDavis7M: If you want to nerf other strategies, then Legacy of Smiths needs to operate on the same lines ...

Re: Duration of Short Events

It may have to be individual events. I can't think of a general rule that won't require a lot of qualifications to individual events anyway.

Re: Fallen Wizard MPs for Palantirs

Given that any FW can play a Wizard's Ring at a Haven and get two item MPs (as well as enough DI for a 2 MP character), I don't think this needs to be in force any more, either.
