So my group came upon a problem of wording on one the the Yssaril Spies;



"So Ata: Spy: Choose a player. His total votes are reduced by half rounded up(after adding any bonuses)."



Since the card doesn't specifically say it targets(uses the word choose) a representative(specifies player) is the player's representative considered targeted(say if it was a bodyguard that acts if it is targeted)?

You answered your own question. The rep is not targeted.

Agreed. The player is the target, not the rep, so Bodyguard abilities which trigger upon being targeted do not apply. In fact, the targeted player wouldn't even reveal his representative in this situation.

You're wrong: you have to calculate the own bonus!

Scott meant that you don't reveal your rep as you normally would when being targeted by a spy, but later along with the other Bodyguards and Councilor that weren't targeted.
