Owen the Oaf

Rules FAQ

  • Owen the Oaf’s ability also affects himself. (Ex: He does not contribute his STR to the challenge if he gains a military or power icon)
  • Characters with a second copy of the same challenge icon are only considered to have one icon and would still contribute it’s strength to the challenge. (Ex: Alayaya with Ser Pounce attached)
Show of Strength

Rules FAQ

  • Triggered effects engage the game state at the time they resolve. If an event card creates a lasting effect on a set of cards, only cards that are in play at the time the event card is played are eligible to be affected. Cards that enter play after the resolution of the event are not affected by its lasting effect.
  • Show of Strength affects characters that are eligible (STR 3 or lower) when it’s played. If other characters with 3 STR or less enters play or a character already in play has it’s STR reduced to 3 or less after Show of Strength resolves, they are not treated as if their printed text box were blank. Characters who have already been treated as if their printed text box were blank by Show of Strength and then has their strength increased above 3 are still blank.
Arrogant Contender

Rules FAQ

  • If you win a challenge with Arrogant Contender and other characters, he can trigger his reaction if he becomes alone in the challenge during the reaction window after comparing the STR to determine the winner. (Ex: You win a challenge with Arrogant Contender and The Hound).

Rules FAQ

  • Triggering an ability on event does not count as playing the event. (Ex: A Dragon is no Slave)
