CoE Official Errata - Introduction

Post by Thorsten the Traveller »

Dear MECCG community.

We your Council of Elrond representatives take upon ourselves the duty and responsability to issue errata for our game.
For so many years since the demise of ICE, no errata and/or new rules have been issued.
The Council of Elrond has already instituted a rules judge - the NetRep-, whose task it is to explain, clarify and judge in matters of rules and cards.
Rulings and clarifications as issued by the NetRep can sometimes result in changes for our game, but if so, they are not intentional and not guided.

Thus the Council of Elrond will propose intentional changes to rules and/or cards, and put them in front of the community for a vote.
We do this because:
1) Certain conflicts in cards and rules are still unresolved, or resolved unsatisfactorily
2) Better balance in the game results in a more enjoyable gaming experience and will keep the game alive in the uncertain future

The number of errata will remain low, and each proposal will be very carefully considered by a team of experts (including the NetRep), and weighed with regards to clarity, effectivity and efficiency.

The errata will be officially Council of Elrond sanctioned and thus applied in any tournament setting and form part of any judge program.

For each Erratum Proposal a vote will be held during a period of 3 weeks. This voting period shall be announced in a Newsletter.
For a Erratum Proposal to be accepted, no more than 33% of the electorate (being the members of the Council of Elrond forum) must cast a 'nay' vote, and at least 50% of the votes cast must be a 'yea'

Any member of the community who whishes to make a proposal to the Council of Elrond for a possible erratum, or whishes to discuss a proposal, is free to do so on the section of this board called CoE Rules & Errata - please keep this section free for official proposals only.

We hope you will cast your vote, share your opinion, and carry this project with us.

Eric Dané, on behalf of the Council of Elrond.

Here is an update to Eric's fantastic introduction above from years ago....

Your CoE will continue to issue errata and clarifications as necessary to eliminate rules conundrums and heartache, in an effort to make our game more enjoyable to play. We have set up the Annual Rules Vote to address this on a yearly basis.

Of note - we do not currently have anyone in the NetRep position. It is possible someone will be appointed to this position in the future. Should an immediate judge decision be needed, it will be up to each playgroup or tournament organizer to make a ruling in the interim.

The 2018 Charter further outlines the specific procedures for the ARV process.

It is recommended you use the Master Index topic to easily look up any needed CoE issued errata & clarifications. This topic is updated and complete as of this post and can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=103&t=3541

Thanks for your engagement!

Gavin Palmer, acting Council of Elrond Chairman
