The One Ring

Post by Jose-san » Mon Apr 30, 2018 2:57 pm

I propose the following erratum be issued for this card:

Replace "Bearer may make a corruption check modified by -2 to cancel a strike" with "Bearer may make a corruption check modified by -2 to cancel a strike against himself".

Discused here:

This NEEDS to be quickly changed to Hero & Minion, versions.

There is no reason, why the Minion version should be allowed to cancel ANY strike, but not the Hero version...

Thanks
You probably aren't playing Agents correctly 8) <- need a rule thread for this tho...

@ rezwits,

A fair point. However, this...

I guess the ballot is for the Hero version only because the submitter of this thread overlooked the fact that the Minion version has different wording of the sentence... Now, one might wonder which situation is worse: having two differently-working (whilst being the same item) The One Rings (vote: Yes), or keeping them the same, despite their imperfectness (vote: No).

As the Jabberwock said, there will be another opportunity to change The One Ring minion version next year. But if this one is voted down, to accept a proposal for MV will be less likely. The ROC will not bring the same items up for voting each year just to give it another try.

Besides, if this proposal would be accepted, that would be an indication that the community thinks One Ring MV might be treated similarly, which each playgroup can then adopt as their policy for the coming year (as they see fit).

It'd make sense not to bring this item up for voting the next year, if the ballot wasn't resolving one issue by creating another one. In this case, however, if the ballot is downvoted, you'd be unable to tell whether it is due to the populace's unwillingness to accept the change or, rather, to their dissatisfacton with imperfectness of what's being proposed.
Most likely the ballot will be upvoted, so this is not an issue ... just correct the MV the next year. If it's downvoted, however, I'd think bringing it up again (although corrected to cover the both versions of the card) is the right thing to do.
