Hi, all,

I'm just starting to get into this wonderful game, and am a little unclear on what card effects are shared between players. For instance, Celeborn's ablity reads as follows:

Quote:
Response: After a Silvan Ally enters play, that ally gets [whatever bonuses] until the end of the round.


My question is, does this effect apply only to Celeborn's player, or if another player plays a Silvan ally, do they enjoy the same benefits?

This is just another version of the same question, but what about an Event like Astonishing Speed?:

Quote:
Action: Until the end of the phase, all Rohan characters get +2 willpower.


Does the effect apply to all Rohan characters in play, or only the player's? My hunch is that it should just be the single player's- the synergy seems like it would quickly spiral out of control otherwise. However, I'm struggling to find the section of the rules that clarifies this issue.

Many thanks for your time!

Celeborn and Astonishing Speed apply to characters controlled by all players. So when it says "all Rohan characters," read it at face value.

For comparison, other cards like the Outlands allies say "Each Outlands character you control gets +1 [stat]."

In this game, they would use verbage "your ally" to limit it to just your allies. So for Celeborn, it could be any player's ally.

All Rohan characters. Again, it would state "all your Rohan characters" to limit it.
