Since the VtES card Spell of Life from the Lords of the Night expansion seems to cause a lot of questions (and people, lets call them “Timmies“, seem to be eager to play them), I have assembled a Questions and Answers summary, taken mostly from the Usenet group rec.games.trading-cards.jyhad:
Q: When a Follower of Set vampire is put into play as mummy, does the special ability or other card text apply.
Q: Does a mummified Follower of Set contests the vampire “copy” of the same vampire?
Q: Can you put two copies of the same crypt cards as mummies in to play?
A: The name of the crypt card is unique to that “mummy”. Therefore it is illegal to put two copies of the same vampire as mummies into play due to self-contesting.
Q: What happens when you make mummies out of Aabbt Kindred, which do not contest each other by card text?
A: Their special/text of “being not unique” does not apply, and so the mummified Aabbt Kindred contest each other, but not the vampire Aabbt Kindreds.
Q: If I control a Nefertiti mummy, can the Aabbt Kindred vampires I control perform (D) actions?
A: Yes. The ready mummy Nefertiti is a ready Nefertiti. So the special card text of the Aabbt Kindred applies.
Q: How much is the cost of the mummified Followers of Set, e.g. with regards to Kindred Segregation or Khobar Towers?
A: The cost is zero; so you don’t have to pay when a Kindred Segregation, and you do not gain any pool if these mummies are thrown from the Khobar Towers.
Q: What is the starting life of a mummified Followers of Set, e.g. for reference when using Vagabond Mystic?
A: Starting life of these mummies is equal to the capacity of the original vampire.
