Re: Agents and Havens

I think it is wise to use the resource player's site type. Now I feel using Shadows Out of the Dark and New Moon is no longer valid on its own for hazard player cannot target the agent's site to change a free-hold into a border-hold. Note one of my reasons to add power to agents is the power of Thie...

Re: Playing Creatures at an Agent’s Site

I see that the card to use for the site effect is the card used by the agent. Thus, If Fallen-Gandalf makes Bag End a wizardhaven with Chambers in the Royal Court. Then an agent, Lobelia, may move to Bag End used by opponent, which is a Free-hold. Creatures can be keyed now to Free-holds per agent r...

Re: What's your favorite DC card and why is it Backpack?

For hazard creature: Dwarven War Party. You can decimate a hero compan with the right cards or bother minion companies in Southern Mirkwood. Hazard event: Cult of the Eye (MEWR) to bother companies staying in small area. Ally: Bob, a hobbit, a Scout, and handles Lost Knowledge to visit hidden sites ...

Re: Updates of FATE

I finished the 8 new decks including update the 30MB spreadsheet for the changes; I will play this 48 player game when I am old and retired. Other decks were changed slightly with adding more hazards for use. Changes include: All avatar hazard manifestations start play for the respective player and ...

Re: Updates of FATE

I have been caught in a haste to work more on the Avatar decks; that has taken me away from online playing. The past two months has me adding eight new players and four new turns. New turns will allow the Ringwraiths more time to roam. Minions: Desert Orc (A Few Trusty Lads), Black Numenorean (avata...

Re: Framsburg (Hero site)

Good points. Withered Lands not Withered Hearth; reading that Dragon submission confused me. I was told not to leave a live dragon out of the plans if you live near one.

Re: Framsburg (Hero site)

Can Withered Hearth change the SIngle Wilderness symbol on Framsburg to double Wilderness or the Single Shadow-land to Double-Wilderness so to play Trolls from the Mountains? I would allow my opponent to do that with that creativity flowing from the icy streams of the Iron Mountains.

Re: pilfer vs leaflock/tom bomb

I feel like Sam at the Council of Elrond. I first thought Lost in Border-lands can be targeted by the ally since I thought, wrongly, the hazard limit is an entity of the company. I saw Sauron's pasting of entity in an earlier post. I do see that the ally can cancel the wolf attacks created by Fell W...

Re: +1 Tapping to Support

I thought about this too rezwits, but realized I would loose the debate. Sounds like a dreamcard in the making? I made a Spear item that sort of allowed such a thing. It is true a character facing a strike is too busy to aid another strike-facer, but if Beorn clawed a wimpy orc, then he should be ab...

Re: hand size increase optional?

Okay, I see the rulings. I will follow them. But, I disagree with them. Book of Mazarbul specifically mentions hand size. Pallando and Emerald say "may" to keep cards in hand. Yes, a ruling was made that Pallando and Emerald compound, which is smart. Not drawing a card may help you not exhaust when ...

Re: Organizing companies beyond General Influence

One more thing. The only "abuse" that I like is playing a character during Org phase with obviously breaks GI/DI to only use that character for something like taping to play Marvels Told. Now, that character can be used to tap for corruption support on item transfer since "all actions to change comp...

Re: Organizing companies beyond General Influence

There is a lot to speak of here. My position is for less abuse if any. 1) Vilya helps until end of turn, then follower Thranduil II is not longer a follower and does not count against GI and Elrond has more DI until next turn. It is limbo for Thranduil II. 2) If a controller is removed from play by ...

Re: Deeper Shadow

I was thinking about Master of Wood, Water, and Hill and Dragon's Desolation while reading this thread. Digest #118 has it that the change for MWWH lasts all turn affecting all companies. Digest #62 allows MWWH to be played like Marvels Told; tapping Sage can be in another company. About memory, Orc...

Re: DC Poll: which expansion is next?

Re: Non-starting characters

Good response. Some ideas I did not think about. I would say the pool is common/global, but again with no limit on the copies. Taken to hand may mean to discard back to the pool. For now in Fate, the Power Decks are the "perfect" decks. You get to start with any, still alive, character with cards ca...
