General Tournament Rules
Q. How will players determine issues such as roll-offs for heroic actions if both players
have good armies or evil armies?
A. Before the start of each game in which two good or two evil armies are facing each
other, players should roll a d6 to determine who “represents” good and who “represents”
evil for purposes of all roll-offs during that game. The highest score can pick which they
want to be. This only affects roll-offs and does not change the nature of that force in any
other way (i.e. Rohan does not actually become evil so they do not benefit from evil rules
such as being able to shoot at their own models.)
Q. The Harbinger of Evil rule states that all good models suffer a -1 to their courage.
Does this mean that the Harbinger of Evil rule would have no effect if I was playing
against another evil army?
A. No. All rules that state that they affect “good” or “evil” should be read as affecting
“enemy” models instead. So, the Harbinger rule would cause all “enemy” models to
suffer a -1 to their courage.
6. Q. What if I have the Banner of Minas Tirith and I am playing against another player
with a Minas Tirith force? Does the Banner rule apply to my opponents force as well
since they are also warriors of Gondor?
A. No. Banners and other bonuses afforded by something or someone in your army only
apply to you and not to the enemy force, even if it is the same type as your own force.

Q. If I have a bow armed model in base contact with a friendly model which is itself
engaged in combat, can my bow armed model shoot over the shoulder of the friendly
model based on the rules on page 25 of the One Ring Rulebook?
A. No. You may only shoot from behind unengaged friends.
Q. Do models of one race (i.e. Dwarves) benefit from the banners of a different race (i.e.
Rohan)?
A. Yes. See page 47 of the One Ring Rulebook. “All models within 3” of one or more
friendly banner bearers are in range of a banner”. This applies unless the banner has
some additional rules that specify an effect for a certain race or group of models (see
FAQ #14 below)
Q. Can a Mordor Troll taken as an upgrade for a Mordor Catapult, leave the catapult and
move elsewhere during the game?
A. Yes. Any war machine crew may voluntarily move away from the machine if they
wish to do so.
Q. During a Heroic Move, does the hero have to complete his move before the warriors
that follow him make their moves?
A. Yes. If the hero calls “with me” then he can move first and the other warriors follow
him.
Q. What if a hero making a Heroic Move passes his Stand Fast roll for his force being
broken? Since the hero moves first, do the warriors that move with him still benefit from
his Stand Fast rule even if they are further than 6” from the hero when he ends his Heroic
Move?
A. No. See page 35 of the main rulebook. Heroes must be moved first to benefit from
Stand Fast and warriors must be within 6” of the Hero when it is their turn to move. If
the warriors trying to move with the hero in his Heroic Move are outside of 6” of the hero
when his movement is complete, then they must test for courage separately before
