Re: 240-Faction Wars

I have been thinking how animal and plant factions can be useful; they will not be able to move normally. Love Next to Kin is a great card, but not worth the use in the Avatar decks. Here is a new rule: Animal and plant factions garrisoned at a site playable can tap when opponent factions move into ...

Re: Open to the Summons

I interpret "with a character that says he cannot be in a starting company" to be that phase is literally on the character card and not in the rules pertaining to agents as a whole.

The change you suggested will avoid ambiguity and does not make the interpretation worse.

Re: Freeze the flesh

It has been debated how the dead character is no longer in the company. I see the logic in that. However, the dead character in a way is still in the company, but we can say in a spirited form. That is in the hazard limit. The base hazard limit is not modified because a character leaves or joins the...

244-War Among the Ruins

Angmar has been reinhabited and denizens left in Eriador gathered to remove any remaining Free Peoples. The Witch-king, Ardagor, and Dark Dwarves have remaining in their designs an Elf-lord (Elrond), Hobbits, and a Dwarf-lord(Balin). A quick victory here will provide armies to attack Gondor from the...

241-War on the Tundra

Servants of Morgoth have stirred from long sleep. Yet, their hunger for domination has not been weaken by time. A balrog and three dragons have ambitions to rule the North and seep southwards into new realms. The Northern Waste Division minions will gather troops for war, protection or both. Each of...

Re: Deep Mines

I like to look at the intent of Deep Mines for fallen-wizards through the lens of the canon. Saruman first needed the confidence of security before any mining. Thus, Saruman was not a wandering wizard anymore and likely stayed at Isengard or nearby annoying Treebeard with walks in the forest. I need...

261-Practice War

The guidelines for the example 40-avatar faction war is to gauge how the order of faction play sways power in a territory and if enjoyment can be obtained by avoiding an overwhelming unbalance in a territory when one alignment manages to play factions quicker. First, only factions will be used. Thus...

Re: We Have Come to Kill & Ringwraith Followers

I would like that if Ringwraith followers can be used with WHCTK, then such followers cannot be played when the avatar is in Fell Rider mode via the event only, during the site phase. Creature of the Older World ally is a different. I think the follower can be played, but starter movement is not all...

Re: Come at Need

First, the hazard "usually" cannot be used to prevent its play by an opponent: the ally will attack that company and thus be discarded.
half-first: when is the attack? start of the movement/hazard phase? I guess so.

Second, The hazard will cause trouble for those using Here, There, or Yonder.

Re: Come at Need

I see your point. However, I do see an advantage to allow the hazard to be played without an ally. The owner may want the hazard to be "burned" on the table to be later discarded, then recycled by Mouth of Sauron when that desired ally is in hand. Gollum comes to mind. But if a player is fast enough...

Re: The One Ring strike cancellation

I would think there are thematic reasons of cancelling a strike not on the bearer. If in the same company, then the bearer can "use" to influence the attacker is some fashion (e.g. mentally, or invisibility). If not in the same company, well you got me there. It is somewhat difficult to get the item...

Re: Old Road

If resource short-event would be played only in phase in which an action created by it may otherwise be taken, then presence of phrase "playable during site phase" in text of the few resource short-events is not explicable. Lack of of the phrase in text of Old Road does not allow to play it outside...
