Thinking about it purely from the thematic perspective, the card is meant to represent that an item isn't as good as the one it was modeled on.
That makes perfect sense :) ... I better stop making a fool of myself and start thinking before posting :oops:

Re: We Have Come to Kill: target?

During site phase, may WHCtK/ACM be played just after AA and before playing a normally-playable item at a site?

Erratum Proposal : Neither so Ancient Nor so Potent

The card is about Items, so I think it will be more logical if it gives Items MPs...
I'd say that Neither so Ancient Nor so Potent giving non-Item MPs is the whole point of the card... Nothing's sweeter than doubling your own Item MPs by discarding your opponents last (and stored) item.

Re: Deep Mines

Change: [..] The protected Wizardhaven is the surface site for Deep Mines [..] To: [..] This site is the surface site for Deep Mines [..] "This site" is ambiguous. How about striking out "protected" from the original sentence? Taking Konrad's suggestion into account, the result would be: A company ...

Re: Athelas

A Dúnadan can tap and use this item to heal a character in his company (change from wounded to well, character remains tapped) [...] Discard after use. If Athelas was used during the Untap phase, could both the Dunadan and the character in his company untap following the discard of the card? Or is ...

Re: Forum Data Loss

Thank you for taking care of the issue. Btw. would daily (nightly) backups of the server be feasible? That's the standard in IT.

Re: Tidings of Bold Spies

Fair enough! The situation when the hazard player chooses to duplicate the Balrog AA is now clear. Thank you. Now, getting back to the original scenario, I've got the following three questions: 1) If the hazard player chose to duplicate (during M/H phase, with ToBS) the second AA, would the creature...

Re: Tidings of Bold Spies

So even if one of conditions under Special is met, the site may have Balrog AA, that will be unsuccessfully canceled. If I'm reading this correctly, due to FiF being in play, if the hazard player chose the Balrog AA (out of the two AAs) the attack would not be cancelled, even though BoM is in play?...

Tidings of Bold Spies

What happens when a hero company is moving to The Under-gates, while both Balrog of Moria and Forewarned is Forearmed are in play, and Tidings of Bold Spies is being declared? I assume that the first AA is considered cancelled due to the site's special and thus it's not being duplicated by ToBS, but...

Is the spoiler hosted on http://councilofelrond.org/spoiler-list/ the latest version of the document? Also, would it be feasible to update the spoiler once the ARV is done and dusted?

Re: The Fall of Gondolin

Alas, I've never put my hands on The History of Middle-earth, but Of Tuor and the Fall of Gondolin is my favourite chapter of Unfinished Tales, so I'm looking forward to reading other versions of the story 8)
