Fortified Position

Rules FAQ

Can I still ambush cards? Yes, because card effects only affect cards in play unless otherwise specified. So Fortified position does not blank characters in hand, so yes - you can ambush a card. For the same reason, Sansa Stark will come into play knelt during a Fortified Position turn.

Also note that Fortified Position blanks all printed text, except traits, but including Forced Reactions. So you can ambush Gold Cloaks and then keep them.

Then how does this interact with [Dolorous Edd](/card/04025) ? — Magnaos 1
It doesn't. You trigger Edd's ability while he's still in your hand (not blanked). He enters play kneeling and defending, with a delayed effect attached ("if you win, you may return Edd to your hand"). — mplain 171
