Rules FAQ:

  • This is not a save effect. You can use this card to return a character to your hand even if it is killed by an effect that says "cannot be saved" (e.g. Wildfire Assault).

  • The affected character is not returned to your hand immediately upon the resolution of this ability. Rather, it creates a replacement effect that modifies what happens when the character is killed. After all interrupts to characters leaving play have resolved, the character is killed and returns to your hand (instead of being placed in your dead pile). So if your opponent triggers Bastard Daughter or Ser Waymar Royce after you trigger Spears of the Merling King, the affected character cannot be discarded from your hand, because it is still in play.

Rules FAQ:

  • If there are not enough valid targets at the time the opponent is choosing characters, the effect fails to resolve.

  • A character that can neither be knelt nor killed (e.g. already kneeling and protected by The Eyrie) cannot be chosen as one of the targets for this effect.

  • After the two initial target characters are chosen, you must choose one that can be knelt. Whether the other can be killed or not is irrelevant.

Rules FAQ:

  • If your opponent takes control of your character that has Ice attached (e.g. via Ward), Ice remains under your control. Then, if you win a military challenge in which that character is participating, you can still trigger Ice and kill an opponent's character (e.g. the weilder of Ice).

Rules FAQ:

  • "Attached character" is the one this card was attached to when you triggered its ability. If you use Arya's Gift to re-attach the Catapult to another character, the original character would not stand this round.
