Tywin Lannister

Rules FAQ

  • Every 3 gold means Tywin gains 1 power if there is at least 3 gold, 2 power if there is at least 6, and so on.

  • You can trigger reactions like Extortion or Tyrion Lannister (LoCR) first to increase the amount of power Tywin gains. Alternatively, you can trigger Tywin first, then spend the gold to pay the cost of other reactions (like Put to the Sword).

  • Cards like Casterly Rock (BtB) or Sweet Cersei that allow you to spend gold as if it were in your gold pool do not count for Tywin's ability. The gold actually needs to be in your gold pool.

Old Captain

Rules FAQ

  • If Old Captain stands during the D step of the D.U.C.K. sequence (for instance, with Maiden's Bane), it will have pillage and renown during the K step of the sequence.

Ralf Kenning

Rules FAQ

  • Ralf's constant ability works even if an opponent has a Winter plot card revealed. If there is more than one Winter plot card revealed, Ralf will still only reduce the gold and reserve values by 1.

  • The word "opponent" refers to an opponent of yours, not to an opponent of any player with a Winter plot card revealed.

  • If you have Wraiths in Their Midst revealed, each opponent's reserve value cannot be reduced below 2, even if all the other modifiers would add up to a number lower than 2. The minimum is absolute.

  • The phrase "income value" means the gold value on a player's revealed plot card. It really should say "gold value", but it doesn't. :)

King Robert's Legacy

Rules FAQ

  • You cannot take control of a unique character if you already control a copy of that character, or if a copy of that character is in your dead pile. (See Unique Cards.)

  • Taking control of the only defending character will not retroactively make the challenge unopposed.

  • The defending character is removed from the challenge the moment you take control of it. (See Ownership and Control.)

Acolyte of the Shadow

Rules FAQ

  • Acolyte of the Shadow will have insight if an opponent controls a card in shadows during the K step of the D.U.C.K. sequence, even if there was no card in shadows when the winner of the challenge was determined. An example where that could happen would be when Banished from the Light is played after winning a challenge.

  • It is possible for a character to gain a keyword while another keyword is being processed. For instance, if the ability of Ser Gregor Clegane (TKP) kills Hagen's Daughter while resolving his pillage keyword, it is possible for Acolyte of the Shadow to gain insight if Hagen's Daughter is returned to shadows. If insight has not already been processed in that challenge (it cannot be processed unless there is a character with insight present), Acolyte of the Shadow can draw a card.

  • In a Melee game, Acolyte of the Shadow will have insight if any opponent controls a card in shadows, not only the specific opponent in a particular challenge.
