Ride to Ruin

Ride to Ruin is a very good card, but doesn't capture the epicness of the moment it's inspired from. Let's just call it one resource for three progress since you'll probably get a benefit from losing that Rohan ally. I don't now anyone that wouldn't want that, especially considering the fact that it can explore a location before quest resolution.

@copterman that is true. However, in the Rohan archetype allies are intended to be discarded for passive effects as well. Tactics Eomer, Eomund, and Gamling are some examples :) — Uruk-guy 448
Can the ally be discarded from hand or just from play? — edgarmolas 1
Only from play, I think — GreenWizard 261
Does it have to be YOUR Rohan ally that you discard - that is, could you discard another player's Rohan ally? — medouneu 21
@medouneu: Yes. "Do XYZ to ABC..." (in this case: discard an ally) is a cost you have to pay. You can only pay for costs for your own resources/cards. — blueluke 128
