Re: Ringwraiths questions

No. A RW may not be in a company with non-RWs outside a Darkhaven, and during the movement process, the company is not at any Darkhaven.

Re: Ringwraiths questions

Ringwraiths can play allies. Two companies may not start at the same site and travel to the same site. Only one company can travel from a given site to another site during a movement/hazard phase. (See MELE Rules, "Splitting A Company At A Non-Darkhaven Site") All companies must obey company composi...

Re: Poison of his Voice

It is not. The only way adding two stage points could bring his total to 5 is if the -6 somehow set the total to 3, but if it did that, then adding 2 could do nothing. There is a rule that the bonus for weapons must be calculated with its maximum first when determining prowess. I am unaware of any s...

Re: Poison of his Voice

It is the second option. There is -6 to his stage points for the rest of the turn. That applies regardless of whether his stage point total shifts. Otherwise, it would act as thought it set the stage point total to a certain amount, and cards which add stage points would have no effect at all that t...

Re: Master of Wood, Water or Hill

Actually the duration of the effect may be indefinite. As with other short-events that cause actions, the action is not undone merely because the short-event is discarded. Whatever region is changed will remain changed until something changes it again. (Compare cards such as Fog/Moon, where one mere...

Re: Master of Wood, Water or Hill

Offhand, the card doesn't list a duration, so it's anybody's guess how long it lasts.

Re: Master of Wood, Water or Hill

No. Creature Cards You may use a creature card to directly attack one of your opponent's companies. Such an attack can occur only if one of the following criterion is met: · The company is at a specific site at which the creature's card text says it can be played. · The company's site of origin or n...

The Purpose of Minion Henneth Annun

It's the only place you can take Last Child of Ungoliant where your opponent can't attack you with Shelob. :)

Re: How Long Do Agents Make Creatures Playable?

Infinite -- as long as the agent is at the site, I presume.

Re: Fifteen Birds in Five Firtrees

Yes, that is what it means. An untapped target of a strike can choose to take a -3 penalty to avoid automatically tapping. Fifteen Birds removes this option. The "strike sequence" is the time from when a player declares that one of his characters will resolve a strike until the strike die roll is ma...

How Long Do Agents Make Creatures Playable?

Playing Creatures at an Agent's Site (Agent Action) If one of your agents and one of your opponent's companies are both at the same Ruins & Lairs, Shadow-hold, or Dark-hold, you may tap the agent and then attack that company with any non-unique hazard creatures (regardless of what they are keyed to...

Re: Can A Character Be Both Hero And Minion?

I think that a character can be both hero and minion, but not at the same moment and not for the same purposes. That's what I've thought, too, but I'd be more comfortable with some statement from ICE somewhere that either explicitly or implicitly says a character controlled by a FW *can't* be both ...

Re: Can A Character Be Both Hero And Minion?

Now that I look at it, things are getting uglier: Hero: A character controlled by a Wizard player. Minion: A character controlled by a Ringwraith player. Going by these definitions, none of a FWs characters are minion. It's just that Orcs/Trolls fail to be hero. Of course, those definitions then go ...
