Welcome to the 2nd Edition Rules Forum!
A note for first-time posters: Your first post on the forum has to be approved by an administrator (I am not one), which typically results in a short delay in your question appearing here. However, the administrators are not active on weekends, which may leave your question in limbo until Monday.
Purpose & Structure:
Its purpose is to serve as a place to come ask questions about/learn/discuss the intricacies of the rules of the game. This includes the ins-and-outs of running and judging tournaments. In addition, this forum should serve as a reference for players to come back to and find rulings they are looking for. As such, when a question is answered appropriately, a moderator will flag the best answer and mark the thread “answered”.
