So your argument is that "kneel that location" must be persistent because it is on an attachment card, even though the exact words would NOT be considered persistent on any other card type?
The rules say that effects do not persist beyond their point of initiation unless the text specifically says so. There is nothing in the text of "kneel that location" that tells you it persists. The verb form is wrong (compare to the verbs in actual continuous effects, like "gains"). You have to look at the text itself, not make assumptions based on the type of card the text is printed on.
Fine. Let's got with "The Lion's Will" instead. It's an event card that reads, "Any Phase: Pay 2 gold to choose a character. Kneel that character." By your argument above, two separate sentences, so two commands, unrelated effects, right? Why doesn't this one reassert itself? When you get to the standing phase, the character is still the character that was chosen. Nothing on the card says the "kneel that character" text no longer applies.
But you don't have to take my word for it. Send the question in to FFG directly for them to rule on. They've clarified it before, but it never hurts to get an update.
I think we are both making valid points here personally, are you insinuating that there's no room for discussion on this card? You must at least admit that the card has left a bit to the imagination for interpretation.
Back to your response - Once again you're using an event card for your example and event cards are discarded from play and forgotten immediately after they have been played, however if FFG has gone into detail about this card then that settles it. Is there a link or a conversation in a thread that can clarify?
"The rules say that effects do not persist beyond their point of initiation unless the text specifically says so."
Is this an official rule?
Also, calm it down a bit buddy. We're discussing text on cardboard after all.
