I suppose Tyrion doesn't trigger himself?
Yes he does. Not sure why, I think it has to do with the response timing window being open while he is coming out of shadows. Someone may correct me here if I'm wrong on this.
That is correct. He does trigger himself. The reason being is that he technically comes out of Shadows during Step 3 of the Player Action window and is able to trigger his response in Step 5.

So if his text gets blanked (Meera, frozen moat, etc) after his response has kicked in, do any of his buffs remain active/in effect?
The buffs aren't printed, they are created by a lasting effect. The buffs will stay untill the end of phase.
Thanks for the quick response!
Thanks for the quick response!
Do I pick deadly, renown, no attachments,immune to events separately or I have 2 options:
Option1: deadly, renown, no attachments,
Option 2: immune to events ?
Thanks in advance
They are all separate choices.
Isn't the artwork for this inaccurate? The only time he was ever down in the tunnels after his facial injury was after
Spoiler
so he wasn't Hand of the King at that time.
It could be him walking down from the hands tower as well since the injury could be something else? (the injury doesn't look as devastating as the books tell of that part.)
Still nothing like the incredible Blue Hulk Victarion who has burned his wrong hand and is on the boat without any short of armor :D

just looks like a staircase to me
Regardless, in the picture he's depicted with "half a nose" and by the time he woke up from that, he shouldn't be walking around wearing the Hand's necklace.

He doesn't though, it's just his hair is parted a little funny. And the discussion of "X character should totally have Y Trait" is a rabbit hole with no bottom. Traits have always partaken equally from Nedliness and Game Balance concerns.
Why did I check the spoiler. I hate myself.

Alright Grim, having consulted a coworker on this one i am apparenlty "full of sh*t" if i think thats not half a nose, so i'll concede the art doesnt make sense

Regardless, in the picture he's depicted with "half a nose" and by the time he woke up from that, he shouldn't be walking around wearing the Hand's necklace.

This is a prophetic image of when Danny takes the Iron Throne & makes Tyrion her Hand of the King. =-)
