Re: Bespin: CC a Cloud Sector?

Just an update to Gergall's last post. There was a clarification added in the last batch of rulings that explicitly states what cloud sectors are so there is no confusion.

Re: Gold Leader In Gold 1 (v)

sorry for the long wait. This was addressed in the last round of rulings I posted, which can be found here: /viewt ... 23#p919523

The DS player may choose not to pay for a draw, in which case they simply don't draw that destiny and move on to the next one (if any).

I'm not sure if you already saw it, but we further clarified the recent errata so as to not allow circumvention of normal deploying with an empty ship rules.

Re: Obi-wan moving characters a regular move?

Sorry for the late notice, but I recently issued a clarification to the "move away" entry to address this issue. The move with Obi-Wan's text is a regular move.

Re: General Solo (V) question

It can only be used as a top level action. To be usable as a response, General Solo's v's text would have to use the phrase "as if from hand".

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria confirmed Jon Heyman's earlier report about a 13-year, $325 million contract for Giancarlo Stanton. "A landmark day.

Re: superficial damage

No. The card says that "forfeited" weapons go to used pile, but unfortunately, lightsabers cannot be forfeited using this card. Additionally, when a character carrying a lightsaber is forfeited, the lightsaber on them is placed in lost pile along with them due to the "Leaves Table" rule, but the sab...

Re: fire extinguisher

R2 and the fire extinguisher can only be "present" at sites, so the battle cancelation text will only work at sites. Here is the AR definition of "present": Present Think of the term present as applying to something that is physically at a certain place (e.g., a starship can be in physical contact w...

Re: Placing Race Destines...

Sorry for the wait on question 3, it looks like I let this one fall through the cracks as it was discussed by the rules team a few weeks ago and I just never posted the answer. The text on Teemto's podracer supercedes the text on Boonta Eve, so any "replacement" destiny drawn with Teemto, must be pl...

Re: dune sea sabacc, claw, etc

Yes, occupation would be canceled, as inactive cards like a concealed starship never provide presence. In fact, this would have been true before we "changed how swccg worked," since the old rules from the Glossary 2.0 state that a ship concealed with Landing Claw "is treated as if it has no presence...

He does not. While he would count actual force icons at that location other than the location itself (such as Presence of the Force), Jedi and Dark Jedi Master icons are not force icons, and do not affect or factor into anything that looks at force icons (like Feltipern). Force Icons Symbols (lights...

Re: deploying pilots as passengers
