You'd think I would know this with all the times I've played this game, but I blanked on it when it came up the other day and can't seem to find the definitve rule:
Gandalf the White will grant the FP player and extra Action Die; the Witch King similarly grants the SP an extra die.
When playing with the expansion, Galadriel and the Balrog do the same thing, respectively, if they are deployed when Gandalf/Witch King are not in play. In other words, only one extra die is acquired for each pair of these characters. My confusion is this: The rules for the Action Pool (pg 26) state that "Both the Shadow and the Free Peoples player lose the additional die if the corresponding Character is eliminated."
So if say, Galadriel and GtW are both in play, and one of them is eliminated, do you lose the Action Die? Or is it only if both are eliminated?
Similarly, if Galadriel enters play (gain the AD) and is then eliminated (lose the AD); and then GtW enters play, do you get the AD back?
