Is it possible to target Ibrahim Pasha with this card if he is currently fighting a foreign war (Revolt in Egypt)?

We are in dilemma considering "on map" restriction - is he "on map" and does this have to do with Threat to Power.

Thank you

Foreign War cards are not "on map".

I don't know where the "on map" restriction would be coming from.

The card text itself has no such restrictions and I don't remember any reason why it should be in place.

Card Manifest, Threat to Power wrote:
Target one minor army leader (Charles Brandon, Duke of Alva, Montmorency, or Ibrahim Pasha). Roll a die. On a "1", "2" or "3", remove from play for the rest of the current turn. On a "4", "5" of "6", remove from play for the rest of the game. Returning leaders are placed in their capital if possible. If not, place them in a friendly home key.



Could you help me out?

The "on map" restriction comes from the Threat to Power entry in Ed's FAQ.

Thanks. In this case I have to concur and he probably shouldn't be a legal target in a foreign war.

Makes sense as sending a general who was a threat to the ruler's power out to lead a campaign far from home was a common way of reducing said threat.

And yet it doesn't make historical sense since Suleiman had Ibrahim assassinated while he was fighting the War in Persia. Which is the point of the picture on the card.

Now when you gave this historical context, it would be meaningful to hear from Ed on this one. Although I would like to play by the rules, it would feel kinda odd not being able to mimic historical events to which image alludes ...
