Re: Erratum Proposal : Neither so Ancient Nor so Potent

Can you explain why it cannot be the target of Marvels/Voices before it is resolved, and thus is not yet in the MP pile?

Re: Old Road

What about Hour of Need then? It does not mention it can be played at any time, yet it was ruled (or so I deduce) that you can play it during the organization phase. Is balance is the only reason to give it a different approach?

Re: Elven rings can't be doubly worn

Exhausting should rather be achieved by requiring Elrond to tap. I'm confused, do you want to extend the official Erratum to Narya/Nenya, or change it rather? :-) Well, thematically you might be correct, even though it's a short-event, some of the effects last a full turn, so it could be considered...

Re: Deep Mines

it might be dangerous to go down into the Deep Mines and that it can be an advantage to take as many characters as possible downstairs Sure, but you suggested it would change the (meta)game, that seems a bit too much, as if not leaving a character behind makes going to the Deep Mines suddenly worth...

Re: Erratum Proposal : Neither so Ancient Nor so Potent

Neither So Ancient cannot be stopped Can it not be Marvelled/Voiced before it resolves? Of course the hazards are not functionally the same, barely anything is... The point is, if you only have 1 item in play and you fear NsANsP, don't store the item. Seems easier than defending against Muster Disp...

Re: Orc and Troll rules for Fallen-wizards

It would be a shame to have a set of unique rules trashed in order to make FW Orc/Trolls into nothing more than a weaker set of RW Orc/Trolls What makes them a set of unique rules is mostly the fact that they do not copy some of the MELE rules ;-) And this could well be by negligence rather than de...

Re: Orc and Troll rules for Fallen-wizards

Again, since you're proposing adding restrictions that are RW-only to FWs, it needs to be shown that FW Orc/Troll play is strong enough *in comparison with RW play* Correction, I propose nothing of the sort! To you they are restrictions, not so to me. The 1 leader part is restrictive, but the troph...

Re: Erratum Proposal : Neither so Ancient Nor so Potent

But what niche is that then, the niche of people playing single-item 4 turn non-tournament one-deck games? Sure tournament results aren't the only standard, but neither can one view cards outside of context, stating a potential MP doubling would be over the top. If one Muster Disperses a faction and...

Re: Orc and Troll rules for Fallen-wizards

I assumed you understood the meaning of theme, it seems I shouldn't have. ICE mixed minion and hero in the FW alignment, and decided that the player is hero, thereby creating both cool opportunities and difficulties. For me Orcs/Trolls will never be heroes, no matter who they work for. So consistenc...

Re: Orc and Troll rules for Fallen-wizards

Bandobras writes: It is consistent and self-evident that rules that are RW-only rules are for RWs. You mean for minion players (in this case). Consistent and self-evident is relative, and often subjective. Some would say it's not self-evident that Fallen-Saruman is a hero player in the first place....

Re: Elven rings can't be doubly worn

Adding to this, the Elven rings are continuously worn, but perhaps not used twice per turn. Using Vilya's powers is exhausting ;-)

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

As Bandobras pointed out, there seems to be an ongoing argument about whether the Balrog Rules Summary overrides the MELE Rulebook or not. I would be in favour of listing the controversial issues that arrise from the summary (if any), and declare the summary as non-binding. Even if it turns out hel...

Re: Smoke Rings & Weigh All Things to a Nicety

What's the purpose of such a mini-survey? Either it doesn't target the card and it can be used to pull any resource/character, or it does.

Re: Fever of Unrest

or 'their' site path, rather. ICE uses both, but Tolkien would prefer the plural I think. :wink:
