Prophet of Doom wrote:Pallando specific. Playable if you are Pallando and have at least 12 stage points and 5 factions in play. Pallando need not be at the appropriate site when making an influence attempt on an opponent's resource or character. Such an influence check is modified by half (rounded up) of Pallando's unused general influence (to a maximum of 10) instead of his unused direct influence. Subtract from the attempt the number of regions between Pallando's site and the site where the influence attempt would normally be made. Discard if you have fewer than 5 factions in play. Cannot be duplicated.
What if Pallando is at under-deeps site?
What if the opponents resource is in company at under-deeps site?
Does it mean that an attempt he makes is not modified by "the number of regions between Pallando's site and the site where the influence attempt would normally be made" because the number may not be calculated?
What if Pallando is not at under-deeps site, but makes attempt against opponent's faction which is playable both at under-deeps site and at non-under-deeps site (e.g. Snaga-Hai)?
May its controlling player state that he chooses the under-deeps site as "the site where the influence attempt would normally be made"?
We will not speak of such things even in the morning of the Shire.

If the number may not be calculated, there is no modification.
If a faction has multiple sites where it may be influenced, the closest one should be used, so far as I know.
Remember, NetRep rulings are official
. This does not necessarily mean they are correct
You probably aren't playing Fallen Wizards correctly
. This prompted the backlash erratum that I will link to as soon as I notice it is officially posted.

I would think that the influencing player would get to declare where they would normally make the influence attempt. It is not up to the player controlling the faction to tell the influencing player where the influencer would normally make the influence attempt. Nor should the influencing player be arbitrarily restricted to considering the nearest site as their normal one.
It is not our part here to take thought only for a season, or for a few lives of Men, or for a passing age of the world.
