"Florian and Jonquil"

Rules FAQ

  • You can choose a character with "no attachments" for this event. That character will still gain renown, but the second part will not resolve, so the event will be placed in the discard pile.

  • If you are playing A Mummer's Farce, the Forced Reaction on the agenda will trigger for any character that has "Florian and Jonquil" attached, and you will be able to marshal or play those cards. Note that "Florian and Jonquil" does not become a facedown attachment itself though, so you cannot play it again in that scenario.

  • If the character already had renown, the pre-then part of the effect is still considered to have resolved successfully, so the event will still enter play as an attachment. Same if the character fails to gain a functional instance of renown (due to having a "negative value" of renown beforehand).

The Horn of Winter

Rules FAQ

  • Attached character does not need to be participating in the challenge for the reaction to be triggered, as long a location was targeted by assault. A location is considered to be targeted by assault until the challenge ends, so you can trigger the reaction even if you no longer have any participating characters with assault at the time the winner of the challenge is determined.

  • If you choose to discard the location from play, and that location is saved, it will not be blanked until the end of the round. It will still be blanked until the end of the challenge though, since that is when the blanking effect of the assault keyword itself expires.

  • When you win a challenge, any location targeted by assault is knelt before reactions to winning the challenge can be triggered. That means the location will get knelt before you have to sacrifice The Horn of Winter for its ability. Sacrificing it for Trading With Qohor would come even later in this sequence, after claim is applied.

  • It is theoretically possible to trigger The Horn of Winter on defence, if you want to use it against your own location that was targeted by assault.

King's Landing

Rules FAQ

  • You can only draw a card if a King's Landing location enters play under your control, since you cannot pay costs with an opponent's game elements. Same goes for the Marshaling Action to gain gold, you can only kneel locations you control.

  • You can kneel King's Landing itself for both abilities.

  • You can draw a card each time Alchemists' Guildhall or Tunnels of the Red Keep come out of shadows, but of course you then cannot use the abilities on those cards until they stand again.

Zollo the Fat

Rules FAQ

  • Zollo only works when a player "gains" gold, which means whenever that player takes gold from the treasury and adds it to his or her gold pool. He does not work with cards that "move" gold, or with cards that place gold on other cards.

Highgarden

Rules FAQ

  • If you reveal 3 cards and choose the same character 3 times, that character will get +6 STR until the end of the phase. You can also choose the same character twice and another character once. In that case, the first character will get +4 STR and the other one will get +2 STR.

  • You may choose an opponent's character if you like. All the characters are chosen simultaneously, and the STR increase is applied simultaneously as well.

  • Even though revealing cards from your hand is not the cost of the ability, you will still need to show an eligible card to demonstrate that the effects of the ability have the potential to change the game state. This happens in Step 1 of initiating the ability, before Highgarden is knelt. When a card is shown in this way, it is not considered to be "revealed". (See Alla Tyrell.)

  • If a character you do not own would be returned to your hand, that character is returned to its owner's hand instead.
