Brynden's Outriders

Rules FAQ

  • The traits Riverlands and The Riverlands are interchangeable. Whenever card text refers to one, it refers to the other as well. The same with the traits Citadel and The Citadel. What this means is that Brynden’s Outriders will gain stealth if you control The Inn at the Crossroads, despite the unfortunate inconsistency in the way the trait is written on that card. (Pending "official" confirmation.)

Battle of the Trident

Rules FAQ

  • You can include any combination of plots with the specified traits in your plot deck. You are still allowed to include a second copy of one of those plots.

  • If a plot has more than one of the specified traits, you can reveal it during each challenge type that corresponds to any of those traits.

  • You need to control an Army or Commander character after claim is applied, not after the winner of the challenge is determined. If the claim value is 0, or if a claim replacement effect is used, claim is still considered to have been applied.

  • When you reveal a plot in the challenges phase, you skip the steps of comparing initiative and choosing first player. You only resolve When Revealed abilities. If you have revealed your last plot in this way, you also return each plot in your used pile to your plot deck. The post-then part of the Reaction is the last thing that happens. Only after all of the above is completed can you trigger reactions to a plot being revealed (and reactions to a plot entering your used pile).

  • Any plots that have been removed from the game return to your used pile when you have exactly 1 plot left in your plot deck. The term “plot deck” refers to the plots that are still unrevealed, so it will happen when you reveal your penultimate plot card. The plots are returned immediately after you physically reveal the new plot (before comparing initiative if you are in the plot phase, or before resolving the When Revealed ability if you are in the challenges phase). If you are then forced to remove one plot again, it will just return to your used pile immediately. Any plot that returns to your used pile is placed on top of that pile (you are technically not allowed to change the order, even though there are currently no cards in the game for which this would matter). If multiple plots return simultaneously, you may choose the order in which they are placed on top of your used pile. Note that playing Change of Plans can also cause your plot deck to become exactly 1 card. In that case, the removed plots will return to your used pile immediately after the effects of the event resolve, before the reaction window opens.

  • Plots that return to your used pile are considered to have “entered your used pile”, so you can trigger Sand Steed (although there are currently no Summer plots that could be used with Battle of the Trident).

Magnar of Thenn

Rules FAQ

  • You can sacrifice a Wildling character that is about to be killed at the same time as attached character. For instance, when satisfying claim for a 2-claim challenge, you can choose attached character and another Wildling character, then use Magnar of Thenn to prevent either character from being killed (but of course the other character is still sacrificed).

  • If the Interrupt is cancelled, the character is still sacrificed. You cannot trigger it again in that case, even if you have another Wildling character available. Attached character will be killed unless you use another (different) save effect to save it.

Thenns

Rules FAQ

  • Targeting a location using assault happens as part of initiating a challenge. If you declare a non-Army, non-Wildling character as an attacker, Thenns basically functions as if it didn’t have the assault keyword during that step. If another character you declare as an attacker has assault, you can still choose an assault target, but the cost restriction will depend on the other character’s printed cost, even if Thenns’ is higher. While the challenge is resolving, Thenns will have assault regardless of what Traits the other attacking characters have.

Longtable

Rules FAQ

  • Any effect that causes a card to come out of shadows is considered to be “bringing a card out of shadows”, so putting a Small Council or Spy character directly into play from shadows without paying its shadow cost will still “spend” the cost reduction provided by Longtable.
