Can you even play dupes during the setup phase? You just have to pay for them since they can't be a dupe until after the unique card is revealed.

And I guess if your setup sucked you could just be playing the dupe location to try to draw another card.
well, you could, but no one does since it wouldn't be free. Imagine laying down 2 copies of Maester Wendamyr during setup...you'd basically be giving yourself a 3 gold setup for no reason.

If you don't have another play during setup, you do what you have to. lol
I understand why Bear Island is the instant favoured pick for this agenda but I feel that it's a bit lackluster for a choice.

I have this idea that I can't wait to try out. I will choose Gates of Winterfell as my unique location for Stark and make a 45 character deck. The remaining 15-18 cards will be reducers or whatnot (I'll decide when I get to playtest it). A good balance of cheap and expensive chars will be part of my character pool essentially a free character each turn (75% of the time). Hopefully, my idea works out. ^_^

cool deck idea

I use Dorne as my location for the House of Dreams agenda. I find that I can reduce most of my "Ally" characters to 1 or 0 gold, & rush out 2x as many characters. Plus the game changer is the combo: Dorne + Hellholt Engineer x3 + going as close to last in the Marshalling phase as possible = Martell rush. That way you can kneel, "Dorne." As soon as the Marshalling phase starts, name a trait, & then stand it, if you have a "Hellholt Engineer" in play any time an opponent kneels a location during their Marshalling turn!

With this combo I was able to kneel, "Dorne" three times in a joust match, & drop all the Ally characters in my hand. Add in, "Tyrosh" & now Lannister Ally's are cheap too.

Am I crazy wrong about this?
I've used Dorne with Hellholt Engineer to a similar advantage during a Melee game in a deck full of Lords and Ladies. The problem I ended up having was that I emptied my hand too quickly. Haha.
Empty the hand, get a 2 to 1 advantage of characters, and next plot, forbidding someone Valars, play The Grand Melee. Boom!
What happens when someone is forced to bounce their HoD location back to their hand? If it comes out again does it automatically regain it's immunities?

Nope. Once the card is removed from play to any destination, if that location is played again it is not the "same" as the one put into play by the agenda - so it no longer has the gained immunity.
"Cockbongo?" Really?

What if Im playing with Neutral Faction (IG), Im able to search an in house location like
Stoney Sept (DB) or The Wall (RotO), since my house is neutral?
Sep 04 2013 08:00 PM
Neutral faction is, sadly, not a house affiliation. So nope. Other search plots such as Spending the Winter Stores (QoD) also cannot get neutral affiliated cards. Perhaps this is tmi, but also note that cards like Myr (AHM) cost 3 gold in a Neutral Faction deck - it doesn't have the neutral icon, so it is considered OOH and the Agenda only affects cost of characters.
No, as Neutral Faction specifically says that you do not have a house affiliation.

It says the location gains "immune to non-plot card effects". Can the opponent play attachments onto it that neutralize it, like Climbing Spikes?
Immunity is a separate keyword from No Attachments. So long as the text of the attachment doesn't affect the location, it can work. Climbing Spikes would be useless, but Scaling Ladder would work.
I didn't realize you could actually attach cards to opponent's HoD locations.
Yes, as it's not actually a targeted effect to play an attachment. "Attach to an opponent's location" or "a location you control" are play restrictions directed at the attachment, not its host. But the attachment cannot cause the HoD location to gain anything, or lose anything, or restrict its functionality in any way.
Would Favorable Ground QoD force the discard of the location? I think it does since it's not targeting but wiping the board, but the immunity part is something I'm not quite sure whether it'll be protected regardless of anything not plot
No, HoD location wouldn't be discarded, it is immune to any non-plot effects, Favorable Ground is effect originating from event.

If you bounce the HoD location with Search & Detain, it loses the immunity text when it comes back into play, correct?

I have the same question.

The agenda says "that location", which to me is different than "that specific card", but I am also new to GoT and naieve.

Yes, it is no longer protected by House of Dreams after it has left and reentered play.
