    I would honestly be shocked if he was not "No Attachments". Because if the Wyld Stallyn allowed for attachments, why stop with the Ornate Fan?

    Zura reacted to twinstarbmc in Multiple Elusive Creatures   
    "It" is the creature being attacked, clearly. 
    I respectfully refuse. I am not adding confusion, I am pointing out an ambiguity that already exists. Changing one little word could have cleared this up completely. If Elusive said "The first time each creature with the elusive keyword is attacked each turn..." then I never would have even brought it up. But that's not what it says. It says "a creature." And if they submit an erratum for the rule such that it works as y'all're arguing (which, again, I agree that it should be that way) than I will be a happy guy. But I'll say it again, we can't play the game how we want, we have to play it as written. Even if it's written poorly, and even if it results in unintuitive rulings, a la Biomatrix Backup.
    Carlo Phantom. Mack the Knife. Kindrith Longshot. These have no parenthesized-and-italicized text next to its Elusive keyword. Clearly Elusive still does something, even when the reminder text is absent, and I'd think that it does the same thing whether it is there or not. So, I will reiterate, reminder text is not rules.

    Even worse than that. what happens if someone gets your QR code and scans it, then proxy prints the deck well enough it's indiscernible, then claims your deck is the proxy printed one and that you are trying to scam him after a trade?
    so proxy print the "best deck" then first come first serve? yikes.

    Zura reacted to Azrapse in Rules for 3d??   
    Not really. But you could make up your own. Like for example:
    Find 3 tokens that are the same from behind, but in front they have 3 different symbols. Treat each of them as [Up], [Down], and [-]. Let's call them the Z tokens. When setting your dial face down, also pick and place one of your Z tokens face down. When revealing your dial, reveal also your Z token. If it is Up or Down, and your maneuver was blue or white, increase the difficulty of your maneuver. Then add or remove one peg under your ship depending on if you revealed Up or Down. (If you revealed an Up or Down Z token and your dialed maneuver was red, don't add or remove pegs under your ship) You cannot have more than 5 pegs under your ship, or fewer than 1. When measuring range between attacker and defender, increase the measured range by the absolute difference in the amount of pegs the attacker and the defender have. For example, if the attacker has 1 peg, and the defender has 3 pegs, and the range ruler measures range 1, the final range is 1+|3-1| = 3. When dropping a bomb token, you must place on the bomb token a numeric die or other indicator that shows the height at which it was dropped (from 1 to 5), that matches the height of the bombing ship at the moment of it being dropped. Bombs affect objects that are up to 1 peg above or below their own height. When overlapping another ships base, you only lose your action if your ship is at the exact peg height as the other ship.
    Resolve the overlapping as usual, otherwise.
    Remember that ships at range 0 of another cannot declare the other ship as defender, but peg height difference adds to this measured range, so ships whose bases are touching aren't considered to be at range 0 of each other if they have different amounts of pegs under them. Special considerations:
    Some ships don't allow pegs under them. In particular, the Ghost, or any of the huge ships. Treat the huge ships as if they are always at peg height of 0. (They are like in the background of the battlefield).  Indicate the peg height of the Ghost with a numeric die on its base. Asteroids and debris are present at heights 0 to 5, simultaneously. Imagine they are like columns of rocks or junk, like this:

    Zura reacted to Amanal in Tournament Document Doesn’t Define “Dice”   
    The tournament rules has this to say (p5):
    "Typically, players use the cardboard tokens included in official product as indicators. However, players may choose to use other items as indicators, so long as they do not obscure significant component information, are resistant to accidental modification, and their purpose of use is clear to both players."
    A spindown looks like it is quite prone to "accidental modification" for the most part and it has to be clear of function to both players.
    So in the first instance I think you ask the player not to use the items then escalate it as needed.

    No people are pointing out intent matters in the rules, because it does. That's the whole reason FAQ's are released. If dice are banned because they feel cheating is easier with them then providing an object that is cheated with just as easily in the same exact way but calling it something different isn't going to go well with any official who actually cares about the reasoning behind the rules.

    You said "Spin-downs are not designed nor intended to be rolled, which, by any definition, is the key feature of a die. There's a reason why we don't call them dice in the Magic community."
    That is sheer bull poop. You and everyone knows that is just flat out nonsense. They are dice and you are not the definition of the magic community. I too play magic. I and others I play with call them dice or spin down dice. We recognize they are not the standard alternating faces of a traditional d20. But they are still that a d20. They are 'meant' to serve a dual purpose, that of a die and that of a 20 point life counter. Before spin down dice started being used a lot of us used standard d20s. 
    I have no idea how long you've been involved in the hobby. When I started it was '93. When Richard Garfield first started promoting this new "collectible card game" to our gaming club at KU he was you can just use your d20 for your life total. Our gaming club was mainly RPGs. At that time it was dominated by D&D. Everyone in the room had fistfuls of d20s. This is how the beta of Magic was presented to players. It was grass roots like book authors used to do before the internet really became common place. The point is spin downs were created specifically because they are dice and it was a more convenient numbering on the faces but they could still be used as dice. 
    If you wanted a counter that was NOT a die you picked up one of those counters that had the numbers on a disc and placed a pointer that spins in the middle. The reason those were created was precisely because dice (spin down or standard) could be bumped easily.
    So again, in summary, bull poop.

    Sometimes you have a point, but this is not one of those times.  A d20 that is numbered differently than other d20s is still a d20.  A die with blank sides is still a die.   Of course, you know this, but are enjoying the argument.

    I was forced to watch it when I was at University ages ago.  A friend of mine had it on VHS (late 90's).  Its hot garbage but at least it had the original cast (who maintained their actual characters) plus an animated bobba fett.  Disney Star Wars has a very high production value but the plots and story are WORSE in my opinion than the Holiday Special.

    Zura reacted to hargleblarg in FFG DMCAed KeyForges TTS module, implications for X-Wing?   
    I think a lot of this has to do with Keyforge being a brand new game and them being extra-cautious with trying to establish the early health of the game. Especially given the literally unique nature of the game being a fundamental draw, if people have access to play whatever deck they want on a third-party platform, there's less incentive to purchase multiple random decks.
    Not saying I agree. I think having an easily accessible way to play the game is vital for building interest. I bought into agot 2.0 hard, in no small part because I was able to play frequently online instead of the once-weekly 2hr opportunity I had at my lgs.
    Anyway, x-wing is clearly healthy in spite of 3rd party simulators, so I wouldn't expect it to be a high priority compared to a brand new game based on an untested concept.

    Zura reacted to player3137305 in 2.0 Core should have been Clone Wars   
    As the title says. The 2.0 Core set should have been a Clone Wars core set right from the beginning.
    FFG knew they had Clone Wars in the pipeline, they just decided to have old players buy an unnecessary 2.0 core set just for the damage deck. This would have been avoided entirely if the core set was made around Clone Wars ships. FFG has a knack for double dipping our wallets.
    Before anyone answers "nobody is forcing you to buy", I only want to say "you are correct". I haven't bough any 2.0 content and will not do so. I'm keeping 1.0 and spending my gaming dollar on other games. FFG just keeps giving me more reasons to go somewhere else.

    @Darth Meanie The "no content for years" is just false. Every single standard play ship is also new content for epic. To be fair, a lot of players in my area didn't even run epic ships while playing epic, they just played a few squadrons and the assymetric game with only one player having epic ship was also not bad. I think if they convert what is there it would be enough for a while, every standard ship adds something to epic anyway. I'm saying this as epic player, it's not only about those huge ships, it's about the scale.
