Events Requiring Character to Tap After Combat

There are a number of cards that require a character to tap to keep the card after a company faces one or more attacks (from Rescue Prisoners to Lord and Usurper). I have often been in games where effects that untap characters are created between the combat and the card requirement to tap a characte...

Re: Great Ship

Is your reasoning that the effects from Akhôrahil, Dwar of Waw, Hoarmûrath, Ren, while having an opportunity to be canceled, aren't themselves the Nazgul event that caused the effect? Something can't be canceled after it is resolved?

Re: True Fána vs CvCC

Ahh, it wasn't under the True Fana errata; I see it under CvCC now.

What about Adunaphel Unleashed / Foul Trophies / alternative use of Hounds of Sauron or Orc Quarrels, etc? When the strikes come from separate sources, who chooses the source(s) reduced to?

"Original ICE entry: as above, minus 'or Fallen-wizards'"

I would imagine Ringwraith followers count as Ringwraiths.

Perhaps this should have been a status quo item.

Re: Great Ship

Nothing in the card or errata makes me think it isn't possible for Praise to Elbereth to cancel Nazgul short events.

True Fána vs CvCC

What is "the attack's prowess" in CvCC? The highest prowess of the attacking characters seems reasonable? Or maybe the attack is considered to not have a defined prowess?

Re: Dwarven Light-Stone - CvCC

Movement is not a site path. A corruption check is not a corruption point. An influence check is not a faction. Playing a character is not a character. Combat is not an attack. A strike sequence is not a strike. I don't understand the purpose of these; in general I agree that phrase A being differe...

Re: Dwarven Light-Stone - CvCC

That is presuming a strike sequence is not a part of a strike, no? What indicates this?

Is a strike sequence not a part of an attack that affects a character? "Strike: The portion of an attack that affects an individual character."

Re: Come at Need

No where is it stated that the ally is played, in play, or eliminated from play. Check again. Cards placed off to the side are in play for the purposes of uniqueness. Unless stated otherwise, when a host permanent-event is removed from the playing surface, any cards placed off to the side under it ...

Re: Dwarven Light-Stone - CvCC

I don't see the conflation. Which part is at odds with a strike encapsulating its resolution? A strike sequence is the normal process for that resolution. Actually, "A strike is a portion of an attack that affects an individual character." Without the resolution included in a strike, how does it aff...

Re: Dwarven Light-Stone - CvCC

Ah, I see. My interpretation, which I believe is consistent (and would appreciate any realized gaps), is that resolution of the strike is part of the strike, so anything that affects resolution is affecting the strike and can be played/used. A strike isn't just a prowess and a target, but a concept ...

Re: Come at Need

Although I don't see any immediate rules problems: the ally is set "off to the side", so is not in play to affect uniqueness rules. That is entirely wrong. A cards placed off to the side are in play for purposes of uniqueness (at least for the purposes, they are not affected by effects in play, but...

Re: The One Ring strike cancellation

Should becoming invisible help you escape an avalanche? Perhaps the ring should only be able to cancel strikes from an attack. --- Hmm, it doesn't alter the number of strikes nor their prowess, nor any other properties of the attack, so one is inclined to say no. How is canceling a strike of an atta...

Basically, you can dump resource cards from your hand if they can in any way affect the strike, the attack, or change one or more characters prowess and/or body values?
Yes, other than the one skill card per strike per player limit.

Re: Dwarven Light-Stone - CvCC

Technically, it's impossible to play resources that affect the target of the strike, whether that strike comes from a hazard creature/event or an attacking character. Why do you say that?
