Re: Alone and Unadvised AND Returning to a site of origin

Changing the wording of the original Dark Minions rule is achieved by the existence of the CRF Under-deeps ruling. The second sentence of the CRF ruling on returning to origin does not contradict this; it is unnecessary with the other CRF change, but can help reinforce the implications of the change...

Re: Alone and Unadvised AND Returning to a site of origin

When a company's site of origin is an Under-deeps site and the company reveals a new site at the start of its movement/hazard phase, the company is declaring it will make a roll to determine if the movement was successful . No cards can be played between the site being revealed and the roll except ...

Re: Wizard's Trove as Quest Bypass?

I found this reference: > So, does Wizard Trove let you store the Fate card before it get's inverted (and with 7 MP's to boot)? If so, I'm guessing that you can actually do this TWICE. 14 (possibly easy) MP's. Wizard's Trove allows you to store a misc. M.P. card ignoring where it would normally be s...

Re: Question about Riddling Talk

Based on precedent in other game aspects, and barring my knowledge of any rulings in this case otherwise, I'd say that anything that would cause a violation of a mandated policy is nullified (unless it explicitly makes exception to THAT policy). So Riddling Talk return to hand (+ cancel) should itse...

Re: Caching of card images?

My experience has also been that for some reason caching does nothing for new sessions.

Re: River erratum (proposal)

In general, maybe it would be worth having wider discussion as to what criteria to evaluate balance complains being well-matched for CoE rules vs. alternative format/playgroup rules?

I suggest adding "Starter Rules" to the title.
It should be there already. I'm surprised that doesn't show up for you.
Ah, odd! I did click the link the same day you posted, but didn't get around to watching until the day I posted.

Hopefully others can see the evidence that anything you present should be better scrutinized. If my conclusions are so bogus why are you asking me rules questions my PM? Come on.

Re: Beorning skin-changers erratum (proposal)

I think what makes River and Beorning Skin-changers problematic, is that they are so widely used. Glancing at the deck lists from Worlds, at least for 2019 Beorning Skin-changers appears in zero of the posted decks. River is also totally absent from Patric and Heiner's qualifying decks. I do not di...

Re: Alatar - what site is he at during the M/H Phase

(a) and (b) he is at the site. I don't know of anything contentious for those. As you found, a company is not at their new site until the beginning of their site phase. This was a change from your last reference, which is now outdated. However, this literally has ridiculous implications for other ru...

Re: Heart Grown Cold

I agree with Konrad's reasoning. CoE ruled differently if the site was tapped (presumably the case from playing the faction): *** No Strangers at This Time prevents a tapped hero site from being removed from play by Heart Grown Cold. This seems to have been led by the question into ignoring that the...

Re: Non-ratified CoE rulings that contradict the existing ICE rulings

if the effect of Master of Wood, Water, and Hill's targets a region-type of a region card then MoWWoH's effect will be removed from play when the region card is removed from play. ICE reference? Your conclusion contradicts rational deduction from: >Am I correct in believing that if a company is usi...

The rules for The Dragons explicitly differentiate between when a company "reveals its new site" and when a company "otherwise announces it is beginning its movement/hazard phase."
Non-moving companies do not reveal a new site. I don't think your reference proves what you think it proves.
