People Diminished

This site is never discarded and never untaps for you. Cannot be duplicated on a given site.
Currently the text of the card allows to tap after attacks any untapped character (at least any untapped character under control of player).

I propose the following erratum:

"Balrog specific. Playable during the site phase on an untapped Free-hold [-me_fh-] or Border-hold [-me_bh-] if you have a company here. Tap the site. The company at the site faces 3 attacks (Men-4 strikes with 8 prowess, 3 strikes with 10 prowess, 2 strikes with 12 prowess). Following the attacks, tap a character in the company or discard this card. If this card is not discarded, discard all unique factions playable at the site. -5 to each attempt against any faction at any version of this site. This site is never discarded and never untaps for you. Cannot be duplicated on a given site."
We will not speak of such things even in the morning of the Shire.

What about Lord and Usurper? Doesn't it suffer from the same problems?

Interesting that the wording ICE chose for Invade Their Domain avoids all such problems.

RE: People Diminished / Tempest of Fire .... when would you not have a company present during the site phase if the associated site was in play? If some other effect is preventing such a site from being discarded?

Yes. I had hope that someone will make the errata proposal for it.
But all are lazy like me.

Yes.

Besides, even if you have a company here, original text does not precise that the company faces attacks.

The changes are more clear but I find it very unlikely that anyone would actually play a game with a person who presented this interpretation.
