Is Media an alignment? The rules don't say anything about Media one way or another.

Yes, Media is an alignment officially, I'll let Steve know that is missing.

Is it fully considered an alignment (i.e. does a Media group get +4 for matching alignment to control another Media group)?

Does it have an opposite? I'm guessing not, because I'm not seeing anything on any of the other cards that would appear to be its opposite.

From an upcoming article:

"However, the media has become steadily more powerful, while quarreling madly within itself and often becoming a target of other organizations. So Media is now an official alignment, which gives media groups a bonus to control each other. That seems only fair."

That is correct. The creation of the forum efficiently got ahead of the Illuminator announcing it. That will post tonight, with the two big rule changes:
- Media is an alignment, with no opposite.
- Government and Communist are removed.

So is there an update to the posted rules (including media and removing government and communist)?
The one I just downloaded at first glance seems to be the same as the Deluxe rules , save for some credit changes and the color. There are still references to government and communist on pages 3, 5, 12, and 16.

(Edit: I've spotted a few more differences, such as incorporating the rules tweaks from Bavarian Fire Drill, but the above comments still stand).

That Illuminator IS the update :) At this first stage I wanted to just tell you about the differences, not make you reread the entire rules looking for differences.

thanks - sj

In addition to getting +4 to control another Media group, I propose that a Media group also has a +4 to destroy another Media group.

Looking forward to seeing the changes!

That would be an interesting way for it to function a little differently from other alignments.
