Re: Revolution board style

I no longer have the option to choose theme; I have reverted to whichever one has the gray background and only lets the forum appear on about half the screen. In addition, all quoted text is so overridden with quote marks that I can't read the text. Is this something wrong with my computer or with t...

Re: The Will of Sauron & Peril Returned

Yes, it's another example of a card that doesn't actually work. :)

There is a disagreement of interpretation here; it may best be adjudicated by the NetRep.

A faction is only played if the influence attempt is successful, so successful influence attempt.

Re: The Will of Sauron & Peril Returned

They produced an erratum for the handling of discarding long events, but nothing similar was done for the discarding of Will of Sauron itself. Therefore the original condition stands. The Will of Sauron entry is not marked as an erratum. It nevertheless changes the language. They flat-out state tha...

Re: The Will of Sauron & Peril Returned

Because the conditions under which a card is playable are unrelated to any passive condition which causes a card to be discarded. If the action is playing Will of Sauron, you check for the presence of Doors of Night. If the action is discarding Will of Sauron, you check for whether Doors of Night le...

Re: The Will of Sauron & Peril Returned

Will of Sauron does indeed check whether Doors leaves play, not whether it is in play.

Re: New Charter Revision - 2018

Regarding the ROC -- "Once each year, members of the ROC will pull suggestions from this subforum which are deemed to have reasonable support and logic." Presumably, it would be the members of that committee agreeing on which ones to select, or does it mean that any member of the committee can bring...

Re: Region Movement - 2 Companies Travelling to the Same Site

Then I think an errata would need to be issued (although it would seem to me a deliberate disregard of an intent by the original designers). Underlines in the below quotes are mine. From the NetRep rulings digest 35 : Clarification regarding the Middle-earth: The Balrog rules booklet: The ME:BA rul...

FWs can be that scary, yes, in the hands of skilled players.

Re: Sideboard Theories

If you don't have Blind/Ire in your extra sideboard vs. FW, you're not going to hit them as hard. If opponents didn't get an extra sideboard vs FW, you wouldn't expect to see Blind/Ire as often, but they are among the strongest anti-FW cards in the game.

Re: URD & LE Manifestations

If Malady was only meant to be played on your own characters, Van would have stated as much in his answer. Instead, he clarified that because it's not your turn, you can't play a resource to help with the corruption check (confirming Malady can target an opponent). It was meant to be played on oppo...

Use the following (non-bulleted) rules from MELE.

This section is bulleted in the CoE MELE pdf, which I would take to mean that it wouldn...

Re: URD & LE Manifestations

You might also take a look at the rewrite project I did.

The Dream Cards went with theme/simulation as their primary focus. I went with mechanical clarity. :)

Re: URD & LE Manifestations

Card vs Card is a different matter than Card vs Rule. As for Chance Meeting/WHCtK, I actually understand both those cards in way that is vastly different from the common interpretation, an interpretation which I feel breaks the game. But I've written about that elsewhere. You seem to be arguing for ...

Re: URD & LE Manifestations

1) Calm down. 2) All right. Agents no longer need to be at the same site as the target in order to influence them. You can play however many corruption cards you want on a character in a turn. The hazard limit means nothing. You can move through eighteen regions in a single movement if you want. You...
