Re: StrategiCon Feb 2020 - DC Playtest Frenzy Part 2

Thank you for the tales.
One option was to use Book of Mazarbul or a Thror's Map to move from Blue Mountain Dwarf-hold northwards to Thilgon's Tomb for the hoard item Arkenstone avoiding a Dark-hold. No one used Dwarven Hoard with Durin's Day? So many ideas for MEDF.

Re: Tharbad is a Ruin and a Port ?

Still wondering why Minas Tirith is not a port as of last year anyway. It is genius to add new ideas to the game like ports and mountain regions to give flavor. I like how the hidden cost of Thuringwathost was soften. Slayer characters though need to finalized; I am at a lost there unless going solo...

Re: Christopher Tolkien Passes Away at the Age of 95

I am one of the few that read all 12 histories of Middle-Earth. There had to be a passion
to write those books for much was repeated in the versions and to decipher the order of corrections.
Good to fix any sleeping problem too.

Re: Christopher Tolkien Passes Away at the Age of 95

Sad indeed. I had to pause when I read the news.

Today, I had an itch. What happened in Middle-earth on January 15th; yes I know the calendars are out of whack.
PS. Something happened on a bridge that day. Wow!

Re: Fifteen Birds in Five Firtrees

This card is quite the doozy. I think others before have clarify what "tapping to face the strike" means. I use my analysis to include the long text forcing ICE to find a short means to say what they mean. 1. Card gives a great bonus, cancel up to two attacks, at cost of site phase 2. Card allows si...

Re: 112-Fate-Rules

R053 Knowledge of the Enemy card text change It is too powerful I think to remove cards from the game by another player. Thus, I thought of change this hero resource to: Once stored, discard this card to name a hazard card. Whenever your opponent has this card in play (Darkness Ahead) or in hand, op...

Re: Agents and Havens

I think it is wise to use the resource player's site type. Now I feel using Shadows Out of the Dark and New Moon is no longer valid on its own for hazard player cannot target the agent's site to change a free-hold into a border-hold. Note one of my reasons to add power to agents is the power of Thie...

Re: Playing Creatures at an Agent’s Site

I see that the card to use for the site effect is the card used by the agent. Thus, If Fallen-Gandalf makes Bag End a wizardhaven with Chambers in the Royal Court. Then an agent, Lobelia, may move to Bag End used by opponent, which is a Free-hold. Creatures can be keyed now to Free-holds per agent r...

Re: What's your favorite DC card and why is it Backpack?

For hazard creature: Dwarven War Party. You can decimate a hero compan with the right cards or bother minion companies in Southern Mirkwood. Hazard event: Cult of the Eye (MEWR) to bother companies staying in small area. Ally: Bob, a hobbit, a Scout, and handles Lost Knowledge to visit hidden sites ...

Re: Updates of FATE

I have been caught in a haste to work more on the Avatar decks; that has taken me away from online playing. The past two months has me adding eight new players and four new turns. New turns will allow the Ringwraiths more time to roam. Minions: Desert Orc (A Few Trusty Lads), Black Numenorean (avata...

Re: Framsburg (Hero site)

Good points. Withered Lands not Withered Hearth; reading that Dragon submission confused me. I was told not to leave a live dragon out of the plans if you live near one.

Re: Framsburg (Hero site)

Can Withered Hearth change the SIngle Wilderness symbol on Framsburg to double Wilderness or the Single Shadow-land to Double-Wilderness so to play Trolls from the Mountains? I would allow my opponent to do that with that creativity flowing from the icy streams of the Iron Mountains.

Re: pilfer vs leaflock/tom bomb

I feel like Sam at the Council of Elrond. I first thought Lost in Border-lands can be targeted by the ally since I thought, wrongly, the hazard limit is an entity of the company. I saw Sauron's pasting of entity in an earlier post. I do see that the ally can cancel the wolf attacks created by Fell W...

Re: +1 Tapping to Support

I thought about this too rezwits, but realized I would loose the debate. Sounds like a dreamcard in the making? I made a Spear item that sort of allowed such a thing. It is true a character facing a strike is too busy to aid another strike-facer, but if Beorn clawed a wimpy orc, then he should be ab...
