Lord Doran's Chambers
****-

Feb 02 2016 03:55 PM by theamazingmrg

Can I play one as attachment and the second one as location?

No, because the card is Unique.  That means you can only have one card of any title in play at any time.  It doesn't matter what type of card it is, only the name counts.

 

That said: If Lord Doran's Chambers was in play as a location and got discarded from play, you could then play a second as an attachment to your house card (or vice versa).  Just as long as they were not in play at the same time.

Sorry. Should have read the card more carefully, been more precise and not phrased my answer as applying to both abilities on the attachment.

@ktom: unless I'm mistaken, you don't have to control both the character and the attachment to use the second ability ("Challenges: Kneel Seafarer's Bow to choose a participating character. Until the end of the phase, that character gets +2 STR."). Having control of the attachment is enough.

Short answer: The same person has to control both the attachment and the attached character in order to use the abilities on this card. You can only trigger abilities on cards you control (so you have to control the attachment), and you can only kneel characters you control to pay costs (so you have to control the attached character).

No, only the controller of the card can trigger its ability(ies).

Do you mean 1) if you put it on an opponent's character or 2) if you put it on your character and your opponent takes control of this character?

 

Any case, the answer is the same.

In 1), I honestly don't see why you would put that on your opponent's character since as explained three posts above, you won't be able to kneel your opponent's character (kneeling is a cost and you only pay costs with cards you control). Anyway, if you do that, you are still in control of the attachment and as such, you and only you can activate the response (and in this case, you can only activate the second one since you can't pay for the first).

 

In 2), the FAQ stipulates that "Any time control of a card switches via a card effect during a game, the new controlling player gains control of said card and all duplicates. A Game of Thrones LCG Rules Clarification and Enhancement Page 12 Unless specified in game text, the new controlling player does not gain control of any attachments on said character." Long story short, you end up in the case as in 1), being able to trigger the second response but not the first.

If this attachment was attached to the character, under my opponent's control, can my opponent trigger the response "kneel attached character..."?

Once you start the game, you draw seven cards. You can put face down as many cards as you want for a total of 5 golds (the only restriction is that you can only put one "limited" card). That's what we call the "setup". If you are not satisfied with the setup you would have using the 7 cards in your hand, you are allowed to take one - and only one - mulligan, which means that you are allowed to shuffle the 7 cards back into your deck and draw 7 new cards. The aim is, hopefully, to have a better setup. As I mentioned, you are limited to one mulligan, Obara's effect allow you to take a second mulligan after the first one if and only if she's in your hand. In this case you would be able to remove Obara from your hand - hence proving your opponent that you do have the card, and take a new mulligan.

So if this card was attached to a King character wouldn't the two STR's mentioned on the card cancel each other out?  Meaning that all the King character really loses is Renown and gains the Bastard trait, right?

I don't understand what mulligan means in this game?  What is a mulligan?  I know what it means in golf. LOL but not in this card game.

So b/c he has the war symbol does that mean he can add +1 to his own STR?

Yes

The card only mentions that you need to "attach it to a character". It gives you the option to use it on your own characters, or on your opponent's. 

 

- If you play it on your opponent (which seems to be the more logical way of playing), things happen as you described. You win your challenge, and return the character to your opponent's hand. Trust me, marshalling a 4 or 5 cost character only to have it bounce back to your hand without any possibility of attacking hurts a lot.Plus, the card gives you the option, especially if you are runnign an influence-heavy deck, to return the card into shadows and repeat the process the following round(s).

- Playing it on your own character can surprisingly work quite well too. Some characters provide effects when they come into play (Daario, Jorah...). Bouncing back those characters in your hand to use their effect again can be devastating and wreck your opponent. I also have ambush decks on top of my head. Imagine that you have Long Lances in play, you attack with Long lances and another character, bounce long lances back into your hand, then ambush it and use its effect to stand the second character. There a quite a few similar combos that you can consider while using this card.

You don't "want" to remove one of your location from play, but this card is one of the many from the game that balances a powerful effect with a downside. Reducing a character cost by 2 is huge. It has basically the effect of a "sea" card that you can use every turn instead of discarding it. Plus, it is not limited. The only difference is that it only works on unique character, which isn't too much of an issue in most decks. Note that this card is fantastic during set up: the effect does not trigger so you don't have to discard any location. Last but not least, the card can also be used to your advantage. Imagine that you have harrenhal with 2 gold tokens on it and you have a second in hand: you play street of silk, discard harrenhal, play harrenhal again and start the round with three potential cancels again. You can also get rid of some annoying attachments that target locations, such as burned and pillaged or frozen solid.

He does. You can check Jon Snow from the Horn That Wakes which has a smiliar effect and gets +1 and "immune to events" due to its traits.

Why would you want to remove one of your locations from play?

I don't understand this card and why you would ever use it in your deck.  Maybe this is because I don't fully understand the Shadow cards. 

 

So would I attach this to an opponents character, then if I beat that opponent in either an intrigue or power challenge by 3 or more STR, I then return that character to it's owner's hand?  Otherwise I don't see why I would ever it attach it a character of my own that is in play.

(3.9) Icons in the Text Box

Gold modifiers, influence, and initiative modifiers are not called out with an outline, and are therefore a part of a card's text box. Challenge icons and crests are differentiated from the text box of a card by a solid outline, and therefore are not considered a part of that card's textbox.
