questions about Fury of the Dragon

10 posts in this topic

It says, After you win a ico_power.pngchallenge against an opponent with a ico_baratheon.png or a ico_greyjoy.png House card,choose a character controlled by that opponent,and reduce its STR to 0 until the end of the round.

Q1:If i win pow challenge against my Greyjoy opponent, and treat the effect of my plot. I choose Qarl the Maid to be 0 STR. Can i response shadow parasite to increase STR? If so, how many is it?

Q2:If my opponent declare Qarl to be the attacker, can he increase STR to over 0 by Longship Iron Victory? Or it will still be 0 str?

Thank you for answer.

Q2: no, his STR will be 0, no matter what

Q1: which leads me to say there's no specific reduction value, so Shadow Parasite cannot respond

Thank you for your answer. But I read another answer from agot. It says, "Well, it's a passive effect with a lasting duration. The STR reduction happens when the passive resolves, and only at that time. It wouldn't reassert itself. It would be different if the effect was a constant. Let's say there's an attachment with the text "Attached character's STR is reduced to 0". That's a constant effect, and it would reassert itself even if another effect raises that character's STR. But I would say that the STR of a character reduced by Fury of the Dragon can be subsequently raised again."

Can you tell me how to comprehensions, please?

I was going from another of Ktom's post: I asked how LoW Eddard (reduce claim to 0) interacted with PotS Arianne (increase claim by 1) and he answered that the order doesn't matter, the claim is 0. Here's the thread: http://community.fantasyflightgames.com/index.php?/topic/53321-reduced-to-0-vs-fixed-increase/ It's only 2 years old. Though if Ktom changed his mind, we might be better off asking the higher powers.

To be fair, I think Eddard and this plot are very different.  This plot has a passive effect with a point of initiation(after you win a POW challenge, reduce STR to zero).  Eddard has a constant effect(while he is defending, reduce claim to 0).  So, Eddard constantly turns the claim to 0 regardless of what it is and Fury of the Dragon applies it's effect one time passively with a point of initiation.  So, I think the plot does it's reduction just that one time while Eddard's is constantly doing it's reduction.

Fury of the Dragon

If i win pow challenge against my Greyjoy opponent, and treat the effect of my plot. I choose Qarl the Maid to be 0 STR.

1,Can i response shadow parasite to increase STR? If so, how many is it?

Shadow PArasite does not interact with Fury of the Dragon at all. Reduce to 0 and -X are incompatible comparisons, so Shadow PArasite cannot trigger at all.

2,If my opponent declare Qarl to be the attacker, can he increase STR to over 0 by Longship Iron Victory? Or it will still be 0 str?

Its STR is 0 until the STR reduction effect ends. As an absolute, reduce to 0 takes precedence over any other modifiers. The thing to remember is that when you calculate a characters STR you take all modifiers and apply them simultaneously. In this case 2 STR + 2 STR + Reduce to 0 are applied simultaneously you are still left with reduce to zero "trumping" all positive modifiers.

Exactly. One is a lasting effect originating from a passive, the other is a constant. That is a HUGE difference.

 

Apparently not for Damon.
