yes, but if you mark is partial or full success, it saves me the hassle of looking up what you needed to roll.

tn6+ doesnt really help me to know what youre rolling for... partial... full?

Malcolm.

Please plot your movement.

I'm not sure what your end facing is suppose to be.
All mercs are facing north during setup.

All Op Force are facing south during setup.

I have 14 of 20 intitiave rolls in, 6 more and i will resolve Op Force movements.

Currently you Vinidcator has a walk of 6, because of the low gravity.  So you were able to get there on a walk.  (Look over special rules for a summary of variations for fighting on a low gravity/no atmosphere battle.

Also, please specify hex movements with a number and number of turns with a number.

Your move in my short hand would be.

Malcolm ~ Walk ~ R1 F2 L1 F2 ~ +1 Def Mod ~ 2837n

It presents to me all the information i need to confirm your move on the map being executed correctly.  It might not seem like a big deal to you, but seeing it in a format i'm use to confirms the mode of movement you want, with the hexes being moved.  Confirms your expected def mod, and a final hex and facing, confirms that were both on the same page and nothing was mis plotted by you on orders (trust me it happens).

Your orders are good as is at this point you dont have to change anything, just be aware you did it on a walk, and used one heat point, also be aware that your heat sinks are venting half the normal heat that youre use to.

Movement:Walk 6, Defensive mod +1
Turn right 1
Forward upward a lvl 2
Turn left 1
Forward 2

 Or for Kitten, R1,F2,L1,F2 Ending hex 3234 facing forward.


I think you're actually moving down a level there.

Kitten:
Map Notes...

White    = Level 1
Brown    = Level 0
Grey     = Level -1
Black    = Level -2

 That goes down?, thought that was elevation changes...Hmmm, not going to see much from there then.

Ok will rethink that move then.

Re: OOC - Started May 2014
Posted .... feel asleep in the chair but tried to wake up enough to roll init and post it.

Was I supposed to plot a move regardless or are we in normal combat on the get go?  I may have been a bit sleepy and not thinking well when I posted.

Re: OOC - Started May 2014
(hugs)

Thanks for trooping in.

We were one short this morning.

Giving it a few hours, then will ask for someone to roll intiative, so i can progress with turns today.

Waiting on Donovan...

If someone would please post a move for Donovan, i will update op force this morning.

If i dont have anything for Donovan by lunch, i will presume he lost intiative and stood still, and then progress with the turn phase.

Will accept orders from anyone, but prefer for it to be from someone who knows what the game plan is for the lancers.

Re: OOC - Started May 2014
You know... if you guys keep calling what should be a walk, a run, i'm going to let you run... generate the heat and take the hit penalty...

I have no problems with making your job harder if that's what you want...

Lucius McMurphy:
Just as a helpful reminder...

For those that failed their Initiative rolls or only made a 'partial' success you also have to plot your movement like Jennifer Cross did.


Looking for a little clarification.

I was under the impression that if we got a partial success, we would wait until after the main opFor moves, but have to move before the opFor command lance.

Is that not totally correct?

You may wait, you do not have to.  evidently jennifer did not mind moving early to help the turn order along a little quicker, or perhaps wanted to claim a hex ahead of her fellow mercs?

Re: OOC - Started May 2014
Hey kitten, it's okay for this round, but seeing the map: could I request you find a darker green for the green lance's mechs?, I had to look the map over 3 times searching for the missing mechs before I found them, it's enar impossible to see against the antive colors of the map.
