Just to make sure, the Bara player chooses the two characters that are being knelt, correct?

No. A player who plays this event chooses and kneels 1 standing character controlled by each player.

Note that the original post is correct for the most common scenario (a Barathron player using this event in a one-on-one Joust game), but TrueLolzor's generic phrasing is also correct -- acknowledging that the event is not loyal and so could be played by anyone using a Stag Banner agenda, as well as that it could be played in multiplayer games.


Important side note: There is no "if able" on this event. So this event can only be played if each player has at least one standing character to be chosen as a target.

Do people usually prefer to have this in their Bara decks, or Consolidation of Power? I usually gravitate towards the latter, for one less gold (two with Fealty). 

I don't play too much Bara but it seems like a little bit extra is worth it to kneel Tywin or Mirri

The appeal of EHJ is that you can choose any of your opponent's characters to kneel, whereas COP limits your choice to total 4str. That's not too bad for 2 gold if you can shut down Tywin, Mirri et. al. The only disadvantage I can see is the need to have a chud to kneel yourself.

Or combo it with Ours Is the Fury. Or "power up" Ser Barristan. If you're creative, there can be advantages to kneeling your own character - chud or otherwise.
