RINGLORE ‐ Short‐event (U)
Sage only, only playable at a site where ʺInformationʺ is playable, and only if a character in his company has a Gold Ring. Playable only during the site phase. Tap the sage and the site. Play to test a Gold Ring. No roll (or draw) is used. The player may replace the Gold Ring with any ring from his hand (except for The One Ring). Playable only during site phase. Tap the sage and the site. (E)
I would just like to confirm:RUMOURS OF RINGS ‐ Permanent‐event (U)
During your organization phase, you may take one ring special item (except for The One Ring) from your sideboard or discard pile and place it ʺoff to the sideʺ with this card. This item gives no marshalling points. A maximum of two items may be with this card at one time. You may play a ring special item placed with this card as though it were in your hand. You may start the game with this card in lieu of playing a minor item.
Ringlore may not be used in conjunction with Rumours of Rings, correct?
This is because Ringlore states to "replace the Gold Ring with any ring from his hand" and Rumours simply allows you to play ring items from it "as though it were in your hand."
This is the same reason you can't discard a card placed on Rumours to satisfy Rolled Down to the Sea.
