As always, changes contained herein do not go into effect for sanctioned tournaments for 30 days. (So these become active on May 22nd, 2013.)


  • Impulse
  • The notion of "impulse" has been added to the Rulebook. The "impulse" represents the next opportunity to play a card or use an effect. It respects the Sequencing Rule. Only the player with the impulse can play a card or use an effect.
  • Additional Strikes
  • A minion may only gain additional strikes after the initial strike resolution, or after the resolution of one of his or her additional strikes. A minion with unresolved additional strikes cannot gain additional strikes. A minion is limited to gaining additional strikes only from one source each round. A minion cannot pass on using an additional strike.


  • Some typos were corrected (Lilith’s Blessing reading "Duscipline").
  • Names of artists were harmonised ("Larry Snelly" becoming "Lawrence Snelly")
  • Incomplete cardtext was completed (The Summoning was missing some characters).
  • No change in other text.

Banned Cards

  • Lilith’s Blessing
  • Lilith's Blessing has been added to the banned list. An alternative effect to bring its mechanics back to the tournament game is being investigated, and the card will be reintroduced once a solution has been found and tested thouroughly.

Complete Rules Reference

    Some clean-up (that was necessary) - removal of outdated references, alignment with the Rulebook.A complete list will be available soon.

General Rulings

    I have started including all the valid rulings I encounter (either here on or in the Newsgroup) to the Card Rulings page. My objective here is to have that page become more of a database than a simple page. The long-term goal is to have it integrated in tools such as the SecretLibrary or VampiDroid. This will require some changes in the tables, to properly cross-reference cards, rules, and rulings. A "complete" (as far as the word applies to on-going processes) will be available soon.
