The High Sparrow
Each player cannot gain more than 7 gold each round.
Each player cannot draw more than 3 cards each round.
Reaction: After an opponent collects income, move 1 gold from that player's gold pool to your own. (Max 1 per round.)
The High Sparrow is in play, I collect 7 gold of income, then my opponent collects income. Can I play A Meager Contribution?
The High Sparrow says players cannot *gain* gold.
A Meager Contribution says *move* gold.
Gaining gold is defined in the RRG as taking gold from the treasury:
- If a player gains gold, the player takes the specified amount of gold from the treasury and adds it to his or her gold pool.
So I would assume that moving gold from one player's gold pool to another's is not considered as gaining gold.
However, we just got a ruling in L5R saying that when one player gives/takes resources to/from another player, this qualifies as one player gaining resources and another player losing them. I wonder if L5R and AGOT are mechanically different in that regard?
In AGOT there is also the card Riverrun that speficies the difference between characters gaining power, and power being moved to characters, as being different things. We have been operating under the assumption that reactions to a character gaining power do not trigger when power is moved between characters (so when one Ser Edmure Tully triggers, another Edmure cannot steal power from him). Is this correct?
