Fallen Wizard not in play

Post by kober » Thu Nov 30, 2017 3:21 am

When a FW is (declared but) not in play, are his special abilities "triggered" ? For example, Gandalf's "Your characters and hero allies are each worth full MPs". Ditto for General Influence (e.g. 18 for Gandalf)?

Special abilities printed on a character card are not active if the card is not in play*.
CRF, Rulings by Term, Fallen-wizard wrote:The white hand symbol on the Fallen-wizard card is that Fallen-wizard's general
influence once he is revealed. Prior to that, his general influence is 20.
*) Unless a text of a card states otherwise. E.g. some cards state how much they are worth if they are eliminated, or what happens if they are stored (eliminated and stored cards are in play only for purposes of uniqueness)
We will not speak of such things even in the morning of the Shire.
