I'm going to vote against you here. As I see it, rolling the die is
part of playing LotI. Since the second LotI says it can cancel a
card "just played", it's a valid play. Indeed, if rolling is part of
playing, he COULDN'T play his LotI until after you had rolled.



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.
