>1) Is it alright to search through your lost pile at whim?
I would say Yes, as long as you don;t shuffle any cards around. This is
following up on some of the more recent cards in Magic that affect your
discard pile...

Good question, but I would think the first card has precedance...

>3) Is "Sleep" cool to play during runner to runner combat? The card states

Good question. I'd say yes, but...

Ok... Technically. Fatigue only effects your Power/Threat Rating.
Otherwise characters with Stamina wouldn;t take any damage! So thus, in
your above example, he'd become a -4/1, which is effectively a 0/1.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
