    Hello,

    what happen if Bachmann use his Aktion Sample to take a Silence Token from a Target? Who decide which of his Action is silenced? Can he use Inoculte to impose it to another target?

    I believe since Bachmann is imposing the state on himself, his player would decide what is silenced, and as long as you don't Silence Inoculate, you'd be able to put it on someone else.

    Definitely a situation that could be addressed by the updated FAQ which is due very soon by @-V-

    We do it as you said... but it is a bit frustrating to be honest to play with Bachmann at the moment if we don't know whats right.... and it is not the only point that a problem :-(

    That's how I would understand it. He's not immune so he has to take the hit. The Oberon player didn't impose it, thus doesn't get the choice.

    While I agree it's not spelled out in detail in the RAW, I think this is relatively clear.

    Silenced affects him, but HE imposed it, so the player selects which of his abilities is affected.

    No other reading is consistent with the rules.

    Slightly off-topic, but last week I managed to Silence Bachmann’s Immunized ability while he had IMM, Poison, Stunned and Dazzled states on him. It was glorious.

    Yep, I think I'll keep Viral Outbreak close in case that happens to me.

    That feels like the kind of moment "NO!" was invented for.

    :-P
