Has this ever been errata'd or anyone know if this would not be the case? We went back to this old scenario with one player running Thalin. It eventually ended-up with one of these birds ruining the second-half of the game with such infinite loop (no engaged enemies and only the crows left in the encounter deck). Even with three players drawing two cards each for the last quest card (still during the quest phase), it appears that Thalin just ruins the fun! Please tell me I'm wrong here.

Yes, that works.

Yes, this will work. People use it to deal with Mumak without him wailing at you for 4 turns. That if you can pull out the combo of def-reducing cards + Straight Shot.

Does this mean that if I have a card that reduces a monster's defense to zero that I can play this card and discard a non-unique monster, before he even attacks?
It doesn't say "printed" like some of the ranged specific cards out there. So I am leaning towards saying it would work.
Can anyone clarify?

Apologies; I forgot to mention I'm playing a four player adventure group, each monosphere. With those limitations, I don't see him beating out Gloin (who I can heal as Lore player), Thorin (who would be great except he can't go in the same group as...) Dain (the one dwarf hero my friend uses). And to be completely honest, I've had to fight to get my Leadership player to include Dain in his deck because of all the dwarves we have across the table.
So, I have to be more careful with detailing my set up and why I reached those conclusions. Thank you for reminding me.
You make excellent points, especially about threat level.
I'm actually considering replacing Elrond with Thorin in my deck to make a dual sphere.There is at least one surprise attack , a few Snowborn Scouts, and a few dwarf friendly events that could make it worthwhile to me. But I don't want to mess with another man's cards.

Shadows such as "Discard an attachment from the defending character" are pretty straight-forward. But for shadow cards like these that say something to the effect of: "Defending player must something something", or something more generic like this shadow effect, if a Sentinel character is defending for another player, who does it affect? The engaged player, or the player who is actually defending for the engaged player? (Similar question regarding Beregond).

When using the Response or Action on a Ally card (or attachment), you don't have to pay any cost it does not explicitly mention.
The response on this card doesn't mention any costs, so it is free to use.

I'll have to agree to disagree there.
If you're running Dwarf decks then you're running Dain. But I would put this guy in before either Thorin or Gloin.
For one, I think Hero Gloin works better in a deck with some easy way to heal him. Or at least some ways to buff his hit points. Neither are native in Leadership if you're going mono as you stipulated (well, not on cards worth playing, anyway). Plus, Ally Gloin is pretty nice too and you're giving him up by running the Hero.
As for Thorin...there's no way to say he's not a great card. And that early-game 3 or 4 willpower/attack can be clutch. But...he's also 12 threat. Meaning you're gonna be seeing the worst the encounter deck has to offer a few turns earlier. And while his resource generation is great, there's a bunch of great resource generation in Leadership.
When I ran Dwarves 2-player we ran Leadership/Spirit (Dain/Nori/Balin) and Lore/Tactics (Bifur/Gimli/Ori) and those decks chewed through almost anything (except, for some reason, Into Ithilien, which we have still never beaten).

Is this ally's response for free or do you have to pay the 2 spirit resources to put him into play as well?

I ask Caleb this question and his response:
Feb 07 2018 08:59 PM by OrionM42X
If he goes back to being an ally, what happens to any resources he may have accumulated?
Jan 24 2018 09:52 PM by Helruyn
There was this message from Caleb:
Bifur and Gloin count towards the number of dwarf characters you control when triggering their Response abilities because they have to enter play before they can trigger. As soon as they enter play, you control them.
=> so yes, Gloin count as the fifth dwarf!

Thanks. I'm actually the same person that asked on BGG. I was desperate for an answer an cross-posted. Again, thanks for replying...
Jan 23 2018 03:36 PM by Helruyn
Yes, this is correct.

If there is no active location, am I forced into the second choice?

only the owner gets to look at it.

So, does that mean only the person playing the card looks at it? The errata makes sense to make this a playable card, especially with all the when revealed treachery cards. But since my group limits table talk in that we don't share information for things we only have access to look at, changing the word from reveal to look makes me wonder what they meant: the owner of the card or the whole table?
