Burning rick cot and tree - how do you tap some sites?

Post by gollum51 »

Is it possible to burn border holds where nothing is playable (e.g. Henneth Hannun, druadan forest)? I.e. How can a minion tap these sites?

Thanks. This would work for a FW or a Lord - a lot of work for 1 MP!
What about minions? How could minions tap these sites?

Of course. Minions can include hero items in play dack (half Mp, no bonus or special property)! Thanks.

Small Note: Double-Dealing (Stage Resource) will allow cross-alignment resource play, so FWs can do this, it just takes more work.
Remember, NetRep rulings are official. This does not necessarily mean they are correct.

You probably aren't playing Fallen Wizards correctly. This prompted the backlash erratum that I will link to as soon as I notice it is officially posted. :)

OK, but some cards are banned in Hamburger Scenario games :

I.2 Banned Cards:
You may not include the following cards in any of your decks :
• Long Winter
• Storms of Ossë
• Foul Fumes
(i.e. no hazard that may tap a site may be included!)

Marcos is one of the few people I know who could make such a deck work, anyway. :)

My use of this card, that I have dicovered, is this:

You play a faction, with the intent, that you don't even care if you miss the influence roll.
See?

It's like ok boys let's go to (said border-hold) you get there and you're like, are you going to join?
They are like, a NOPE, (because you missed your influence roll) then your company says "BURN 'UM"

And you play rick cot and tree, and get the Misc MP. And Misc MPs are hard as HELL to come by in Minion decks!

So in essence, you get the 2 MPs either way, (most border-hold factions are worth 2 MPs), but it's nice:

A. To not worry if you miss your roll.
B. To get Misc MPs!

Er . . . how are you tapping the site to play it, then?

I play the faction, and that taps the site.
Am I missing something here?
--==--
I guess I am, I just read the Universal and it says:
● If the result is higher than the number listed on the faction, you successfully play the faction. Tap the site.
--==--
Wow, I thought you always "tapped" the site on a faction, success or fail.
--==--
MECCG = "you learn something everyday..."

Thanks, well in the case of trying so hard to get MISC MPs, without using Shire Resources, I would still burn um to the ground and Sacrifice the faction just so I can get MISC MPs.

I mean you have to get at least 1 MISC MP, to stop a Fallen-wizard from getting 20 off his 10 misc so... because of doubling, you could pray for Ready to his will but...that might not ever hit either

Or you could use The Names Among Them, Tribute Garnered, That's Been Heard Before Tonight, That Ain't No Secret, The Black Council, Great Army of the North, Long Grievous Siege... Seems like there are plenty of good miscellaneous MP options that you could use as a minion player.

If the resource is not successfully played, the site does not tap. Hero Ithil-Stone is another case of a resource that is potentially not successfully played.
