BALLOT ITEM # 41: Spies Feared {erratum}

Post by Thorsten the Traveller » Mon May 28, 2018 9:09 pm

INFORMATION
Spies Feared: hero resource permanent-event
Scout or Ranger only. Playable on a Shadow-hold if one of your scouts is there or on a Ruins & Lairs if one of your rangers is there. An automatic-attack is created at the site against minion companies: Orcs - 5 strikes with 8 prowess (detainment). Additionally, automatic-attacks at the site are duplicated (including the new one) against all companies. Discard when site is discarded or returned to your location deck.
The issue with Spies Feared is that currently it only affects the copy of the site it is played on. As it is a resource, you cannot play it on an opponent's site, you must play it on your own site.
Thus, the additional automatic-attack against minion companies is only created at your site, making this card basically useless; modifying (including creation) of automatic-attack(s) against an opponent's minion company is the only apparent purpose of this card.

To This:
Scout or Ranger only. Playable on a Shadow-hold if one of your scouts is there or on a Ruins & Lairs if one of your rangers is there. An automatic-attack is created at all versions of the site against minion companies: Orcs - 5 strikes with 8 prowess (detainment). Additionally, automatic-attacks at all versions of the site are duplicated (including the new one) against all companies. Discard when site is discarded or returned to your location deck.
(relevant part bolded)


CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR VOTE:
If you vote YES, then Spies Feared will have a use, affecting any minion companies at any versions of the site it is played on.

If you vote NO, then Spies Feared is not changed and has no apparent use. It will be up to each playgroup and tournament judge to decide what will happen if this card is played.
