Re: CTF Game 3: Turn 7 (The Running Of The Flag)

Post by WearsHats » Mon May 11, 2015 7:27 am

I did. I was going to roll initiative this time. But it seemed wrong. Last turn, like I said, there were conflicting actions. Two attacks on the same target. Also, Carves and Stands were already both in the square. Tumbles was tackling in to it. This time, everyone moved into the square.

It still seems contradictory to me. I don't think which tussle happens first shouldn't affect who's in the square at the time. But if it does (GMs discretion), then initiative matters in other actions. That's why I think its inconsistent. Even the rule you posted said actions happen simultaneously. I don't mind GMs changing the rules slightly but you need to explain the ins and outs of it ahead of time, particularly if its complicated in the "it applies here but not there" department, rather than a retrospective, "it seemed wrong." It does affect decisions.

And actually I probably wouldn't have made a big deal about it till you said something in that spoiler, which got me thinking about it.

Edit: looking back the previous turn I notice it got changed around. That actually makes it worse. As its now worded: tumbles goes first and is in the square but carves doesn't get a penalty. That actually makes it confusing as to why there is no penalty. And I had to jump around to the different notes and spoilers to figure it out. :waitwtf:

I'm trying to be open and clear and consistent, but I really don't feel like arguing this one any further.

If there are conflicting actions, then initiative matters and that will affect turn order. If there are no conflicting actions, then there's no initiative roll and everything happens simultaneously. That's the rule.

And yes, I realize that the way the previous update was posted got a little confusing. Maybe that was the wrong choice on my part. But I thought it was more interesting to read that way. And if you're going to go combing through to examine the nitty gritty of the rolls and what got applied to them, then you're going to be digging through spoilers. But I was curious about what would have happened if Carves had gone first and I rolled it and I thought it was interesting so I decided to put it in there.

I'm sorry you disagree with my call, but I'm going with what makes sense to me.

Again I don't mind if you change it but again you need to fully lay it out.

So the possibility of removing teamwork penalties only matters if there already is an initiative roll? Or just in that instance because those particular tusslers were already there? Because you've said both. If I tackles a square with a red in it from the north and mort tackles the same square from the south does the one of us who wins initiative and tackles him first suffer no teamwork penalty or are we arriving at the same time?

Like I said, if you're going to change it, explain it.

I disagree. The attack is what brings you into your destination square. If two people attack into one square, the last one gets a crowding penalty. It's not inconsistent with this at all.

My stance: there are weird differences between rules and real life anyway.
As long as what the dice decided is written there, I don't mind if the sory is told slightly differently.

It doesn't affect the outcome but yells should have a penalty for interrupted tackle.

Next turn might have to be delayed a day or two. We'll see.

I've been in really bad shape. I only get a couple hours a day where I'm well enough to sit up and try to think straight. I've got an important appointment tomorrow afternoon, and I really should prepare some things. I'm also pushing myself so I can be awake late enough to have a chance at some semblance of lucidity. Even so, I won't be home until hours after bedtime. I may need time to recover.

I'll put the update together when I can.

Failed by 1...the dice are like in the first game. Not on my side in the first half. Lets up they make up in the second. 2 xp so far, that sucks.

But he did miss 1 or 2 turns while your team advanced. I just wanted to point out the large gap between the top and bottom people, not make a contest out of it. :lol:

I did not miss a single move, yet I also have only 1 XP, just like our captain.

Yeah, the dice are the MVP...
But our superior tactics will make up for that. :p

That's two tussles for Stands decided by a crowding penalty. Stay far apart if you don't want him to win.

Hey after we capture the flag we should see the maximum amount of goblins a square can hold. I suggest neeree's square since he loves being crowded.
