Re: Bilbo's Magic Ring & Rumor of ring

Celedhring can test gold rings , and since BMR's is a special item and its text does not apply to minions, he cannot test it. However, Uwe does touch upon a problem. BMR's text does not apply to minions, thus the line "you cannot play a resource to win the game..." also does not apply. Minions don't...

Re: 2019 Charter Revision

In general, I am in favour of a) not changing the charter much/often, as that seems weak and/or CoE just uses it to serve their purposes, and b) not being too specific in the charter, for example with respect to dates time-frames etc. that being said, the proposed changes are minor, which is both ok...

Also note that the front site has a card number with added letter A, and backside with letter B :wink:

Re: Appointing a Chairman 2019-2021 Term

If Gavin is up for it, I would second nominating him as Chairman session 2019-2021. He poured in lots of energy, gave direction, let others contribute, gathered support/ideas, and was very approachable. What more could one wish for? as for committees, I will gladly reprise ROC and DC (Alternate Form...

Re: Middle-earth: The Necromancer

they are non-unique and thus should be 3x in there. I just checked and they are included 3x on the printsheets. So far I have not found any mistakes on the printsheets. So if they're not there, then that's a production error somehow. I can't open all packs and check cards of course, and even if I wa...

Re: CoE 2019-2021 Elections - Nominate Yourself Here!

I don't want to influence the voting in any way, but I do would like to remark that, in my opinion, people who want to be elected should be known to the community by more than just their online Nickname. Yes online presence is almost primary nowadays (in meccg), still it is important, or at least a ...

Re: ME:NE - card clarification

All named resources ;-)
Repeating them on the card is less elegant, takes up more space, and thus affects readability. And though recycling Rivermen was never the purpose, we didn't really saw a problem with it either.

Re: Middle-earth: The Necromancer

The package was in fact sent out last week.
It seems DHL's tracking system (and notification system) is far from ideal.

Re: DC tournament rules for alignments

It's not really defined what an alignment is (let me know if I'm wrong). But the CoL-rule you quote does apply the term to the avatars. White/Grey/Black player are not alignments, but keywords also allocated to the various avatars. These were introduced in the first place to distinguish (for resourc...

Re: Middle-earth: The Necromancer

Cards arrived last week, yay!
now I'm on to the herculean task of creating MENE sets, FF playsets, and packages. Meanwhile we'll contact the participants for a check of shipping address.

Re: Middle-earth: The Necromancer

Well X-mas is the unfortunate timing causing more delay, but not the main reason, they had to fly in a guy from Canada to fix their new processing machine. But indeed, the print looks good, I was there at the beginning to proof the first printsheet (the whole print took 10 hours). So, I'll notify pe...

Re: Updating Magic Set Editor

apologies for the late reply, but I was extremely busy of late. As I got the original files of the game (courtesy of Coleman Charlton), I can give you also the original fonts, though the cards were made on an apple machine and I use Indesign on windows. This matters a bit, as it seems Apple has its ...

Re: Middle-earth: The Necromancer

Perhaps you are referring to the First Folk project, otherwise it can't have been much more than a year ago. People who signed up for the Necromancer project received an update email a few weeks ago. And yes, it will happen this very month ;-)

Thanks for the photos Pawel! You might want to add a few 'winks' to your post (see below), not everybody understands your famous irony. Some might think we bullied Stevie but we like him!
