Nice general overview, and good analisis! of course in many ways it's apples and oranges, but it neatly confirms what is generally felt and believed anyway in terms of strength/weakness. Too much stuff to discuss in detail, but few minor remarks: -Have you ever played a game in which Great Hunt only...

I honestly don't get it. Why weaken the other FW's vis a vis other alignments because Saruman has been done injustice? If you maintain that Legacy is not thematic, I'm with you, but given the parsimoneous stance towards UEP that is not enough. You think FW's are too strong as an alignment, playing H...

well if you give them stats, they can die, or be corrupted, can't they, and that's not what you'd want. The thing I regret more is that they don't have skills. No fighting ok, but no trickses? Yes it might be a bit strange, but just think of it as a force around you, a bit more like Gandalf in the h...

And you should really make a good spoilers list  :wink: , because I tend to disregard cards without pics since I can't play them in real life, and this one is not in the MENW spoilers that are age old so it can't be one of the first around. Spoilers are way easier than looking up each card at g...

no internet? how do you survive? :lol: which site would that be then, I don't know it? there's only Pieni Satama, but it's in Rast Lornaeth, so on land, and it doesn't have the abilities I gave the ice-berg site. nb. why do the Aerfaroth faction have a negative modifier for dwarves, while merp says ...

some for the Northern Waste

to revive this forum a bit, and because most people thought my Arda stuff was way overboard, so there's no more room for frivolities there, I direct some creativity to dreamcards. Nico, when you've finished doing the dishes in your new place, let's have some comments on these  :wink:  and ...

well Arda game doesnt differ much from normal multiplayer apart from the use of a shared deck and the issues that come with that (card trading  :D ), so most Arda rules are concerned with game setup and such. The main difference with normal multiplayer of course is the level of experience requi...

There's also the new Arda format, which is a multiplayer shared deck game: this means up to 7 players can play with the same deck, like in a sealed game. Check out the rules here: http://www.lureofmeccg.org/rules.php Obvious advantage is that you don't need to make any decks, you just toss in all ca...

You ever considered a career in stand up comedy, Asphalt? Give it a try :lol: Imortantly the percentage of cards that actually have UEPs is tiny so this would hardly create a major intrusion IMHO. This indeed, but the more valid argument would be, that UEP info is play related, and all the other stu...

Not that I know anything about programming and such, but to my limited knowledge, if it can be done, how confusing can this actually be?: Title Cardtext with Errata (E) text UEP Or indeed just mention 'UEP' and make a shortcut. Nb. (E) stands for Errata, you shouldn't have to mention what the erratu...

Priceless!! I saw you were busy with this at the Lure forum some time ago, nice to see it has grown to real proportions, maybe we can actually perfect this for Lure purposes some time?
