Re: Effects played during the organization phase, and depend on the site or site path of a moving company

Sorry, I personally don't see how one could possibly interpret "the overall movement/hazard phase" as "all movement/hazard phases". There is a stark singular/plural discrepancy.

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

There is an immediate end of the movement/hazard phase. Perhaps effects that said they happened "at the immediate end of the movement/hazard phase" would still be able to happen? :roll:

Re: Press-gang AND Pallando the Soul-keeper

Sure, but the resource player generally gets to choose resolution order, no?

Re: Thrall of the Voice: Character Play Restrictions

For short-events it should not be any criterion. If it would be a criterion, then Hoard Well-searched would be a card playable on company but actually affecting a site, not the company. Plausibly intentional? I do not see any effect of Hoard Well-searched on a site. (Also, thanks for referencing th...

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

CoE has previously ruled that there is no "end of the movement/hazard phase" period for a company that is returned to it's site of origin. This would imply that there is no chance for corruption checks from Alone and Unadvised. *** I am overturning this ruling. These cards must be played "at the end...

Re: Thrall of the Voice: Character Play Restrictions

So, if the player takes the option to perform the activity: "you may play a non-Ringwraith character card" and that character card is an agent, then the character card must be played at the agent's homesite. The rule: " If the character is an agent, you may only play him at his home site ." doesn't...

Re: Thrall of the Voice: Character Play Restrictions

Bounty of the Hoard doesn't have a lasting effect. And so we cycle back to my comment about your cyclic logic. Your other points don't invalidate my position and they certainly don't prove your verb tense theory. My verb tense theory cannot be proven. That is why it is called a theory. It can be ev...

Re: Effects played during the organization phase, and depend on the site or site path of a moving company

ICE ruled that there is no "player's" M/H phase: " Every m/h phase is associated with a specific company, there is no umbrella m/h phase that covers all of one player's m/h phases in one turn ." This ICE ruling was made with respect to Annotation 26 and it further stated that the hazard player can ...

Re: Thrall of the Voice: Character Play Restrictions

I weary of pointing out your cyclic logic ("this can't be the rule because this can't be the rule"). Instead, how about a simple fact check: According to the rules, the card text effects of a short event are immediately implemented and they will cause some activity in the game. You switched "effects...

Re: Playing on Tabletop Simulator

I agree with CDavis7M about deckbuilding/manipulation on TTS being highly aggravating. Although, if you are highly fluent in TTS controls maybe it wouldn't be as bad? I have criticized cardnum for certain manipulations being awkward in the past, but on the whole I endorse it very positively. :)

Re: Thrall of the Voice: Character Play Restrictions

Each of your companies this turn is considered to have one fewer Wilderness and one fewer Shadow-land in its site path. The action is removing a wilderness or shadow-land, the target is the company's site path, the passive condition triggering the action is the revealing of the company's site-path ...

Re: Thrall of the Voice: Character Play Restrictions

So if Bounty of the Hoard would create its own item play action it should say "you may play one minor or major item" instead "One minor or major item may be played"? Hoard Well-searched should say "you may play one minor or major item" instead "A minor or major item may be played." Right? Those wou...

Re: Thrall of the Voice: Character Play Restrictions

Bounty of the Hoard does not make something playable. It has an action that is implemented at resolution. Again, by its verb tense Bounty of the Hoard modifies the legality of a (previously defined) play action taken upon an item. It does not create/allow its own item play action. I have presented ...

Re: Beginner is looking for advice trading/start to play

Because lots of useful cards are unique and you can only have 1 in a deck, a complete set is a good place to start. Max 3 of non-unique cards, of which there really won't be that many in a straightforward deck. Some I often see that come to mind: HAZARD Unexpected Outpost For generic creature strate...

Re: Stormcrow and permanent-events playing history

I agree with e.g. Open to the Summons. Plausibly intended?

I think the parsing of "with" is ambiguous about tense in this case, but I agree that your above parsing is a valid option. Presumably a present "with" is intended?
