Your best place is likely the European market. I am a US player and I used to work for I.C.E. I love the game and still play quite a bit, but finding players in my area sucks now. I am 42 now and have been playing since the games release. I would say that eBay could work too. If you are in the US, e...

Ok then, so I am not seeing a diference here? 6) The terms "influence check" and "influence attempt" are not synonymous. In general any card that modifies an attempt will affect whatever dice-roll is made in that attempt. A card that affects a check or roll will only modify checks or rolls of the ap...

And then, in Lidless eye, they change the verbiage to: Gifts as Given of Old C  Short-event Provides +3 to an influence attempt against a faction Is this for influencing an oponents faction away only then? or can it be used to bring a faction into play? or: Crooked Promptings C  Short-even...

Yes, but in the METW rules.... The only verbiage for getting a faction was to make a "check": Beorning: Unique. Playable at Beorn's House if the influence chec k is greater than 7. Standard modifications: Men (+1). And then the cards: A Friend or Three For every character in the influencing characte...

influence attempt and influence check....

Ok... I have notticed the wording on these cards has changed. In METW when you read the rules, it refers to bringing in an faction as an influence check.... Yet, later sets of the rules really try to distinguiish between the two. I understand the symantics of attempt and check: attempt: you attempt ...

Excellent! I do have a question though.... after reading Saruman's ring, it looked like you couldn't play it UNLESS Saruman was in play? Is that true? I am so used to playing VTES.... where you must actually have a character out of a specific type to be abel to play associated cards... Anyway, the c...

Yes, I printed that out for guidance... I rather liked it myself. The only problem I have.... is, well... awkward... we are playing for fun and "historic" reference.... So, all of us build our decks from the books... trying to use what resources the characters did... I am roped with wormtongue, theo...

Ok, so what about today? How do the prices compare today as they have done years ago when the game was still relatively hot.... and then out of print. These things drove the prices waaaaay up. Where do we stand today? Is the game still very much alive and well? From the lack of postings here.... I w...
