file Attempts to block

Hi everyone.

As the rulebook states
"A minion can attempt to block as many times as they wish as long as another minion is not already blocking.
If one attempt to block fails, another can be made as often as the blocking Methuselah wishes.
Once a Methuselah decides not to make any further attempts to block, that decision is final."


Can a minion with no inherent intercept attempt to block an action with inherent stealth?

Yes, and when declaring the attempt to block the impulse goes back to the acting who can choose to pass it back to the "blocker" that now needs to acquire some intercept to successfully block.

It is actually the only way they get to block since they are not allowed to play intercept if they're not attempting to block to begin with:

intercept can be added during an action only when needed, only by a blocking minion when the acting minion’s stealth exceeds their intercept.

The question was related mainly to Valerius Maior, because of his special ability.

This works as you’d expect with regards to Valerius. If he attempts to block (even without playing enough intercept), his ability applies.
