I love the Narya ring ability:
"If Gandalf is in an unconquered FP settlement, use any action die result and spend the Narya Ring token to activate a FP nation and move it directly to the At War box." (my paraphrase)

Whoah!

I live in the city of Gulf, on the shores of Lake Water. This fun fact has nothing to do with this badge you're pointing at.

Yes, but I think this still gives the ring to the Shadow player when you "spend the ring token". So, this is instead of using the same ring token to modify a die roll. At least, that is my belief...

Yes, and the article also states that there is work on giving the Shadow player some additional ways to balance these new character abilities as well.

I really, really like this idea of modified, weaker dice tailored to individual characters.

I am excited!

Yes, when you use Keeper's dice to activate the specific ability of a Keeper, the ring is still flipped over and given to the Shadow player.

Luck in games, in measured doses, is the catalyst which enables shocking game-changers that you'll remember and talk about forever.

FPMV FTW!

I like elements in WotR that provide flexibility. This one definitely puts a wrinkle in the boring ol' Gandalf the Grey script! (die on the first tile, die on the 2nd if you got Wizard Staff out)

I am not the one writing them, Roberto is I believe. All I do is post here when I see them go live.

So far every Friday seems to be the scedule...

Yes, we're trying to keep the schedule of one article every friday - we did not finish writing them yet, so I am not sure how many articles we'll need to tell the whole story.
