Re: Clarification: Placing Corruption Cards

Can you be more specific about which aspects you find fuzzy here?

Re: Placing Corruption Cards

This is making me consider a new angle that I hadn't before. Many points of the rules use the phrase "play" when they intend to encompass declared/activated abilities of cards already in play. I think it is a terrible confusion, but such is the rules wording available to us. So while I still believe...

Re: Hero Pallando, discarding face-up and face-up discard pile

Aver is normally a verb. Are you talking about status? As for common practice, I've not played with anyone that thought that the existing discard pile must be inverted. Cards discarded from a player's hand must be discarded one at a time. This is mainly to allow a Pallando player to see each card as...

Re: Many Foes He Fought - revisited

because players cannot normally play cards in the midst of characters being assigned strikes. Why? Good question. Not finding as concrete a reference as I vaguely thought existed. But in general rulings about cards that can be played during combat use language such as "before assigning strikes" and...

Re: 2019 ARV - Statistics, Summary, and Suggestions

From the Council Chair on proposing the new (adopted) charter: The above language caused the ROC all kinds of problems last year during the 2018 ARV. Specifically, it was difficult to determine which ballot items should be given the "status quo" label and which should not. ... I propose eliminating ...

Re: Half-orcs + fallen Pallando

Who will dare to give an official answer? :) Not me! But my reading also concludes that "Half-orcs" (factions) are worth 2 MP for Fallen Pallando. Fallen-wizard abilities and stage resource cards can modify the number of marshalling points certain cards give. There is no restriction of "certain car...

Re: Legendary Stair

A takeaway of this for me, though, is that they fully concede that the lack of extensive written errata means that they expect people to play as the rules stand rather than by extrapolation, e.g., as in the Cave-drake example.

Re: 2019 ARV - Statistics, Summary, and Suggestions

How much discussion would be sufficient for you to feel better about unforeseen conflicts with existing rules? I'm guessing you don't realize the limitations of your own claims. You can call my and others' premises invalid as you like, but claiming that we don't exist to believe in them is rather ea...

Many Foes He Fought - revisited

This post challenges current CoE rulings bases. From discussion on Bow of Alatar : What Many Foes He Fought does in your opinion? I think that if you choose a warrior to be assigned a strike from an attack, then you can assign him any number of the strikes from that attack. Does your belief allow th...

Re: Bow of Alatar

Is not it a purpose of synonyms to be used interchangeably to describe the same concept? Synonyms here are "is assigned a strike", "is chosen to face a strike", and "is chosen to be a target of a strike". My impression is that the typical reasons for using a synonym are to avoid being boring or to ...

Re: Bow of Alatar

"Facing" the strike clearly involves both assignment and resolution of the strike. ... Did you read the example or my post? All of the strikes were already assigned. Nevido Smôd faces the next strike I'll try again to articulate. How could Nevido Smod ("face" -MELE , implying:) have "both assignmen...
