Rules FAQ:

  • Attached character must be kneeling and participating in order to pay the cost of the ability. However, the target does not necessarily have to kneeling.

  • You can use this ability if attached character is attacking alone - you pay the cost, and then fail to choose an eligible target. However, if there are other participating characters, you must target one of them.

Is it possible to attach this to an opponent's lady and use the Action? —
You can attach this card to an opponent's Lady character, yes. But you cannot stand and disengage a character you do not control as a cost for an ability. —
An opponent's game elements may not be used to pay a cost. (http://thronesdb.com/rulesreference#Costs) —

Rules FAQ:

  • You cannot marshal locations or attachments as duplicates either.

You can marshal duplicates, because the card did not state otherwise. —
"Marshal a duplicate" is not a distinct player action. You initiate a "marshal a character/location/attachment" player action, and the card enters play as a duplicate. And while Marching Order is revealed, you cannot initiate the "marshal a location/attachment" player action. See the ruling on Arbor and duplicates, also the ruling on Barring the Gates. —

Rules FAQ:

  • You can use Bran to give a challenge icon to a standing Direwolf. The latter part of the ability is not dependent on the resolution of the former part, as there is no word "Then" in the ability's text. (This is similar to Castle Black.)

Rules FAQ:

  • You can pay 1 gold to gmake one participating character gain renown.

  • Which lasting effect applies to which character is determined upon resolution of the event's effects. Subsequently changing the STR of affected characters will not change the lasting effect that applies to them. Lasting effects are static, not dynamic.

If I have no characters can I still play this event? —
No. Sacrificing a character is a cost ("do X to do Y"), if you cannot pay the cost, then you cannot play the event. —
