.. after you used Dis Pater, the bleed can be reduced or bounced to another player. This is because Dis Pater specifically can only be used (by its own card text) when a bleed is successful. that is when targeted player is about to loose pool from the bleed. In that sense, Dis Pater falls into the same time window as Spying Mission. It also makes the acting minion save from Archon Investigation, which on the other hand specifically says it is played when an acting minion is attempting to bleed.
‘Dis Pater‘ was the Roman god of the underworld (which was later subsumed by Pluto/Hades), but actually in the World of Darkness, he is the equivalent of a patron saint of the Giovanni family itself. The name ‘Dis Pater‘ derives from ‘dives‘, suggesting a meaning of ‘father of riches‘, which relates to the riches of the earth (gems, minerals, …) a god of the underworld has to offer potentially. In the World of Darkness, ‘Dis Pater‘ is an elder Elder wraith of great power in the Underworld, and even having some significant influence on this side of the Shroud. Why he’s exactly helping the Giovanni, when some many other wraiths despise and resist the Giovanni, is not known.
More Full Bleed cards (as presented on vekn.net). This time I am bit late, self-biased has already posted the variations of the Saatet-ta ally card last on vekn.net. The variations of these Full Bleed cards, beside the basic design, show how the different icons for requirements, card type, cost, etc. could be placed. Please remember, these are experimental designs, and are not part of the work of the VEKN design team.

.. when you’re playing Sudario Refraction, you cannot move the same Sudario Refraction you just played to the top of your library (during the action’s resolution)? The reason for this is, that you have to “choose three cards” in the ash heap when the card is played. Since at that moment the Sudario Refraction is not (yet) in the ash heap, it cannot be named. Of course, if there’s already another Sudario Refraction in the ash heap, it’s of course possible to take this second copy of the card to the top of your library. It would be different if the card would say “search your ash heap for three cards“, then the act of selection the cards is placed during the (successful) resolution of the action, and not the announcement.
A related issue is that when playing Ashur Tablets you have to name the (up to) 13 cards (and the one you want to take into your hand) when playing the card, that is especially before you draw the replacement card.
One of the organizers of the VTES EC 2012 in Budapest, Hungary would like to host a large, international VTES competition named “VTES Hungarian Grand Prix 2015“. This event would take place during a weekend in March of 2015 in Budapest, Hungary. The schedule for the tournament would look like this:
- Day 1: Draft and/or Storyline and/or Nation’s Cup
- Day 2: Hungarian EC Qualifier (constructed)
- Day 3: VTES Hungarian Grand Prix (constructed)
The prices (event fee and hotel prices) would be similar to that of the EC 2012.
The question now is how many players would be willing to participate in the event. For this, please answer the poll in the sidebar to the right, or go the corresponding thread on vekn.net, where also the same poll is present.
.. when Unleash Hell’s Fury is tapped (e.g. by using Remover on it), Unleash Hell’s Fury can still (attempt to) block? The reason for is this that Unleash Hell’s Fury is not minion in the general sense that it needs to be “ready” or “untapped” as any other minion; it just isn’t a minion. And the card text simply states, that Unleash Hell’s Fury can attempt to block and omits any statement about any requirement for that (tapped or untapped).
There are some other peculiarities about Unleash Hell’s Fury. Some are obvious, some are not so obvious, so I would like to summarize here:
And thanks to a certain Danish player who plays (and owns) a certain Nergal deck.
