Re: Theoretically Infinite Thralls

Let's not be too limited; *ICE* in general lacked clarification. :)

Re: Use of documents during official tournaments

Thorsten brings up the largest issue: the time it takes to consult references.

Like any other game, the fun grinds to a halt when a player doesn't keep the game moving.

Re: Attack's Prowess in CvCC

In that case, I would see nothing preventing Old Thrush from being used.

Re: We Have Come to Kill & Ringwraith Followers

Timing rules in general only work if you don't look at them too closely. ;)

There are more issues therein than just the cards Konrad's mentioned.

Re: A Chance Meeting / We Have Come to Kill

Craig o'Brien was (I believe) the first NetRep ICE had for the game. As far as METW was concerned, his word was law.

Anybody with a better memory than I have, feel free to correct me. :)

Re: Limited site use for FW companies?

So long as a site is not in the discard pile, being able to choose which version you go to can be profitable, depending on the deck (I had one which used Carambor to keep on visiting different versions of the Lossadan Cairn to play/store Palantiri and also play the Wolves).

CRF, The Old Thrush wrote:Cannot be used against agents, since none of them have a listed prowess of 13 or greater.
I believe the same applies to CvCC. It would seem that Old Thrush checks for the "normal" prowess of a given attack.

Re: We Have Come to Kill & Ringwraith Followers

You can always declare illegal movement. It's just that nothing happens and the company stays at the site. Eagle-mounts has its own problems. :) (Notably, that changing site type would indeed make the movement illegal, bouncing the company, and that the opponent may only key hazards to the company's...

Re: When a company is at a site

Snowstorm creates the passive condition which is checked for a company during their movement/hazard phase. Why? (Though ICE never bothered to define what actually constitutes "movement," so the situation is sticky.) What about Snowstorm would only make it apply during the movement/hazard phase? Far...

this is incorrect?
It may be incomplete. A Ringwraith must be in a mode to move to a non-Darkhaven site. I believe they meant that Dwar Unleashed does not, of itself, circumvent/fulfill the requirement.

I feel it is better for our game to fix something 90% and then leave it open for another 10% of future improvements, rather than to fix 0% and have it remain broken and unclear.
And may I just thank you for bucking over a decade of tradition? :)

Re: Earcaraxe & Long Dark Reach

I like annotation 24 to prevent Prowess of Age. Why is "immediately" in the text unless to ensure no hazard events are piled on? Even if it's immediate, that doesn't prevent the play of hazards to modify anything. Hazards played to affect combat must of necessity be played after the card creating a...

Re: The White Tree

I believe it is clear and any person with common sense, any judge should see and rule that only one Sapling needs to be discarded. The above test seems to be unnecessarily motivating players to vote YES, when the situation is clear. I think designing anything without regard for humanity's lack of c...

Re: A Chance Meeting / We Have Come to Kill

I'm assuming the guides have artwork; I'm suggesting a text-only version rather than scans of actual pages. More work, but fewer copyright issues.
