VII. Card Errata and Rulings

-A-

Abductor

Treat character discarded by Abductor to be discarded but not eliminated.

All non-follower cards are discarded along with the character.

Akhorahil

Has errata: Change "...gives -1 penalty to one..." to "...modifies any one
character's body by -1 for the rest of the turn.

Alatar

Alatar stays with a company if he uses his special ability to aid that company.

Alatar can force someone to draw 0 cards when he moves.

Alatar can interfere with the attacker assigning strike. When he uses his
special ability he must face a strike.

Alatar can use his "teleport" ability if he is wounded, tapped, or
untapped. Alatar always faces a strike when he teleports, regarless of his
wounded or tapped status. Alatar must teleport (and declare he is facing a
strike) before any other strikes are assigned.

(errata)-Change ":he must tap and make a corruption check immediately
following the attack." to ": he must make a corruption check immediately
following the attack, and, if untapped, he must tap."

Align Palantir

Align Palantir can be stored.

Has errata: Add "May not be duplicated on a given Palantir."

Army of the Dead

Has errata: Add "May not be influenced by an opponent."

A Short Rest

This card only allows the extra card draw for moving companies that
actually have a site path. If a company moves with Eagle-mounts, for
example, it does not have a site path and does not trigger A Short Rest.
Thank you, Wolfgang, for illustrating this point.

Assassin

All of the strikes will go against the same character.

If an attack from Assassin is given more than one strike, each additional
strike becomes an excess strike (-1 prowess modification) against the
attacked character. An Assassin can never assign strikes to more than one
character.

You may decide to cancel one of the attacks after facing another attack.

Aware of Their Ways

-=-Consider sites to be unique cards for the play of this card.

-B-

Baduila

Read "If Baduila is discarded" as "If you choose to discard Baduila." It is
something you choose to do.

Balance of Things

Balance of Things may be revealed as an on-guard card so long as at least
one character in the company during whose site phase Balance of Things is
revealed carries at least one corruption source.

Balrog of Moria

The "in addition" section of Balrog of Moria is not used if Galadriel is
out of play, even if she is eliminated.

You cannot get the MP from a Balrog of Moria that you played.

Bane of the Ithil-stone

Bane of the Ithil-stone will only cancel effects outside of normal play. It
will not stop you from drawing cards when moving or discarding and drawing
at the end of the turn. It will not stop getting cards from the sideboard.
It will stop looking thourgh the discard piles or play decks. This will
stop cards like Far Sight, the Nazgul are Abroad, Lucky Search, and From
the Pits of Angbad.

"Within the normal sequence of play" is meant to cover things mentioned in
the rules.

Bane will not cancel Revealed to All Watchers or similar effects.

If a card has multiple effects, Bane will only cancel those effects that
concern searching through decks and discard piles.

Bill the Pony

Has errata: The body should be 10, not 6.

-=-May not be used at an under-deeps site.

Book of Mazarbul

Has errata: Replace "tap the bearer during the organization phase" with
"tap Book of Mazarbul during your organization phase."

Burglary

If you fail the roll for the Burglary, you cannot then play an item.

The character who fails the burglary roll must face the automatic-attack as
though he were a one-character company. This means he can receive no combat
support other than what he himself can provide. This is a reversal of an
earlier ruling. Others characters in his company cannot tap in support,
etc.

Revealing an on-guard creature or attacking with an agent can be declared
when a character plays burglary. The creature or agent would attack the
entire company after Burglary is resolved. Of course, the site must have an
auto-attack to reveal an on-guard creature.

-C-

Chance of Being lost

Chance of Being Lost will change your site path.

Corsairs of the Umbar

Has errata: Add "May also be played at any sites in Elven Shores, Eriadoran
Coast, Andrast Coast, Bay of Belfalas, or Mouths of the Anuin."

Cracks of Doom

Has errata: Add "Only playable during the site phase." Remove "Otherwise,
discard the One Ring."

The character who makes the corruption check must be bearing The One Ring
at the time, or else Cracks of Doom has no effect.

Crown of Flowers

Crown will be discarded by Doors of Night.

Cruel Caradhras

Errata: Replace "Minas Morgul" with "Imlad Morgul."

-=-This card can be played on a company using region movement to leave a
site in an affected region. This is a reversal of a previous ruling

-D-

Deftness of Agility

The extra strike is dealt with in a seperate strike sequence.

Dodge

Has errata: Replace "his body check is modified by -1." with "his body is
modified by -1 for the resulting body check."

Dragon's Blood

If the body check forced by Dragon's Blood fails, the character is not wounded.

No body check is required if the affected strike is ineffectual.

Dragon's Desolation

Playing Dragon's Desolation to make a Dragon playable at a Ruins & Lairs
does not necessarilly require you to play a Dragon later in the turn.

Dragon's Hunger

Errata: Replace "Otherwise, the attack is cancelled." with "Otherwise, the
attack is cancelled and the opponent must reveal his hand."

This card can be played regardless of how much of the hazard limit is used
up (and also against an automatic-attack), and opponent must discard a
hazard creature from his hand if he has one.

Dreams of Lore

Does not have to be stored to recieve the marshalling points.

Dwarven Ring of Druin's Tribe

Has errata: One "reshuffle the play deck" is sufficient.

Dwarven Ring of Thelor's Tribe

Has errata: Values in parenthesis and brackets apply to Dwarf bearer. The
prowess/body modifications should read: "+2(4)/+1."

Dwarven Ring of Thrar's Tribe

Has errata: Values in parenthesis and brackets apply to Dwarf bearer. The
prowess/body modifications should read: "+2(4)/+1."

faction which has been succesfully been played at Wellinghall."

Can be played even if there are no Wilderness in play.

Eye of Sauron

With Doors of Night in play Eye of Sauron only gives +3 total to the
prowess of automatic-attacks.

Eowyn

The body refered to in Eowyn's text (and other female characters) is the
Nazgul's body.

-F-

Fell Beast

This card can be played and resolved before any Nazgûl is played with it. A
Nazgûl must be played as the first declared action in the chain of effects
following the resolution of Fell Beast. If a Nazgûl is not played
immediately following the resolution of this card, this card is returned to
its player's hand. This card cannot be played for no effect just to discard
it. This card can be played on an existing Nazgûl attack, but the extra
playability this card provides would not apply.

of effects that would return Goldberry's company to its site of origin.

Goldberry cannot prevent a company from returning to its site of origin
that failed its roll to move to an adjacent Under-deeps site.

Gollum

The text on Gollum is an ability that you can choose to use, not an effect
that happens automatically.

Gollum's Fate

This card is considered to target both The One Ring and Gollum. Thus, you
can only play Gollum's Fate if The One Ring and Gollum that you own are
both at Mount Doom.

Golodhros

He may use his special influence ability only during an opponent's
movement/hazard phase, not during the site phase. His tapping to use his
special ability does not count against the hazard limit.

Has errata: "Unique. Orc. One Strike"

May be played against companies using region movement.

Great-road

Has errata: Replace "opponent draws twice" with "opponent draws up to twice"

Great Secrets Buried There

company, it will heal all other wounded characters in the company.

Cannot stop a body check.

In fact, you can play multiple Helms of Her Secrecy in one chain of
effects. The player must make sure that he does not take the option of
playing Eowyn out of his hand until the first copy played is resolved.

Here is a Snake

Here is a Snake does not prevent the use of hazards already on the table.

Here, There, or Yonder?

The ally does not have to be chosen or played until after the dice are rolled.

Hermit's Hill

To play a major item here, Hermit's Hill must be untapped

Hidden Knife

Hidden Knife is effectively an attack. As per the rule about attacks must
be the first items declared in a chain of effects, Hidden Knife must be so
played. Thus, if your opponent reveals an agent during your site phase and
attacks with it, you must wait until after this attack to play Hidden
Knife.

Hoarmurath of Dir

Horses

Has errata: Add "Playable only at the end of the organization phase."

afflicted character's movement/hazard phase. Of course, the character's
player can play resources to modify the corruption checks. The hazard
player is allowed to play hazards in response, if the hazard player has
enough hazard limit remaining. Hazards so played must directly affect the

that the corruption checks happen after everything else the company will
face.

conditions of cards like Lure of the Senses.
