haha, if everybody decides to stay and fight over it, then they are truly ready for the mental institution. :P
you mean, if we make it so that whosoever manages to store this inverted gets the points, then you can transfer and try get it back next untap, and opponent can then stay and get it back your next untap, and so forth...you wouldn't get kill points I suppose since the attack takes place during untap, unless we specify it. How can we make clear who is opponent in this sequence?
Locked in battle until every sane person (>6 mind) has fled! :lol:
would mean a bit different mechanism though.
1(3)
Weapon. Warrior only: +1 prowess (+2 against Elves). Tap a covert diplomat during any player’s site phase to transfer Usriev (invert this card) to a character in opponent’s company at the same site with a mind <6. If Usriev is inverted, it cannot be normally transferred again, and each untap phase bearer is attacked by another non-Hobbit character with a mind <6 at the same site (opponent's choice): if bearer becomes wounded, attacker takes control of Usriev, and if bearer is eliminated, place him in opponent's mp pile. Only one inverted Usriev may be in play per player. Usriev gives the holder of this card 3 MPs if inverted.

Yes, it was just an amusing thought, not a realistic or thematic one. :)

Looks good. Edited slightly.

Thorsten's idea that the Usriev player gets MPs if Usriev's bearer is killed was pretty cool thematically, but I guess this is making the card too powerful.

Weapon. Warrior only: +1 prowess (+2 against Elves). Tap a covert diplomat in Usriev's company during any player’s site phase to transfer Usriev (invert this card) to a character in opponent’s company at the same site with a mind <6. If Usriev is inverted, it cannot be transferred again, and each untap phase bearer is attacked by another non-Hobbit character in his company with a mind <6 (resource player's choice): if bearer becomes wounded, attacker takes control of Usriev. Only one inverted Usriev may be in play per player. Usriev gives you 2 MPs if stored, 3 MPs if inverted. If inverted and bearer is removed from play, this card is stored.
