In Rulings Digest #34 I ruled:
"I play "Pallando the soul-keeper" as permanent event. At some part of the game my oppenent plays an agent with less than 5 mind and I respond by Withdrawn to Mordor and discarding Pallando. Am I right in supposing that the Agent is eliminated?
*** Agents played as hazards are hazards. Agents played as characters are minions. You cannot use Pallando the Soul-keeper to eliminate a hazard agent."
This ruling is incorrect. The agent is, in fact, eliminated in this case. Minions are cards with a rusted purple background. They can be agents or not. Minion agents can be played as characters or hazards. No matter how they are played, they are still minons. -------- Clarification regarding the Middle-earth: The Balrog rules booklet:
The ME:BA rulesbook clearly defines what it considers new rules and what is considered a rules summary. Since this is delineated in the rulebook, the rules written in the Rules Summary section will not override those rules in the ME:LE rulebook when conflicts arise, though the ME:BA rulebook is a newer printing.
The main result of this is that followers of Wizards/Ringwraiths/Balrogs that aren't "Ringwraith Followers" by be influenced by an opponent, contrary to the ME:BA rules booklet.
