In reply to Oda Matsuta (msg # 95):

The Smackdown (Harm as established, for you PbtA fans) is 18, less his Toughness - which, IIRC, is 5. 13 Damage.

Of course I forgot that you take toughness off the total so yes 13 damage :)....we'll get there in the end :)

I posted my two attacks - I framed it as these are "two hit mooks". If they're not, I'm willing to use both attacks on the one mook - I think it's a move that fits the Badlands pretty well.

Crap, I had a lot of stuff to take care of for a bit and fell behind >.<

Should I still go or have I been skipped?

Go. You should have three attacks to make.

Oh, and how does "Look Out Kid" work?

Will do. I'm actually not sure about Look Out Kid myself, since the only Defensive Bonus I can immediately think of is from Eyes of the Fox, and that lasts for the whole keyframe?

Maybe it's meant to be one of you covering for me lasting until the next shot?

EDIT: Looking it over better, I think it just means I can carry over the benefit of a Dodge interrupt through to the next shot?

Just looked it up. If I give you a Defense Boost I get the Boost too because of Catlike Tread and when you use the Boost, you roll one die. Evens you keep the Boost rather than lose it.

If I sacrifice an attack early, we both get a +3 to our Defense until we get attacked. The +3 lasts for that whole shot and then I lose it. You roll a die and get to keep the bonus for the next shot too if you roll evens.

Do we need to roll initiative for a second round, or do we just roll up the last to mooks?

Just roll on the mooks, you pretty much wrapping it up and chances are PC initiative would be much higher than mooks so...

Not that it makes any kind of difference beyond consistency but I was under the impression that the mook Morgan was bothering with was a woman, the one that missed with a crossbow in post #43.

In reply to Morgan (msg # 106):

I wasn't going for a precise walk through here, but yes I've lost track of my mooks. Or rather wasn't really keeping it in the first place. I'd say I'll do better in the future...  but... probably not, there will be a lot of mooks and they aren't really important and requiring players to keep track of every mook (and doing it myself) doesn't seem like a good idea.

Upcoming fights should have more featured though, those we'll track.

Few notes

First, I’ve said I’d like to reward player skill just wasn’t sure how.  Let try as simple as this: I’ll give you “RP points”, for every RP point you can re-roll any test or check once.  I’ll let you know if you’ve earned a point in private lines.



Second, I need to clarify, not everyone is a clipper or a cog.  For a while M.K. claimed his parents were free farmers. Not everyone in Donbrook is a cog, tread carefully in the world of slaves and masters people get touchy about their status.

Finally, some mechanics of the Episode 2

You clearly need to prepare for bandit attack, so…

  • Just some of the options include fortifying the village, training cogs to defend themselves, scouting/spying on the bandits, and so on.
  • At the start you won’t know when the attack is to come, but I do and I will keep track of how long your actions take.  To this purpose many actions will be automatic success - but you will roll to determine how much time action took.  Say you want to set up barricades - obviously you will succeed, but the roll will determine how long will it take and how strong will it be.
  • I will also keep track of resources.  I’ll give you inventory shortly… you want something not on the list - find a way to get it.
  • Figuring out how long it takes to train villagers or how much wood a stockade takes to build - well that’s just me guessing.  If you disagree with my estimates - feel free to dispute it in OOC, if you have a valid argument I will make adjustments.

With Feng Shui skills being so broad and flexible, is Info: Architecture the applicable skill for surveying the village?

If not, what is the skill to use?

That should get you stuff like structural integrity, ambush points, demolition risks, of the village itself.  If you wanted to find people or specific information about events in the past  you would want Detective, if you want to go look for yourself in all the bolt holes and sneak paths you could even use Intrusion but it will probably take a while.

I'm tempted to prattle off a bunch of thoughts but it feels a bit meta-game but I don't want to either flood the IC with a bunch of exposition or hog a ton of spot light. Thoughts on the best way to share?

Not anymore than Morgan or I did.

Narrator, I'd like to survey the town from the outside and roll +Infiltration to find good places to "bait" both spies and attackers and lay ambushes. Then I'd like do another survey inside the town to identify which building are good to reinforce and will be most useful for ambushes using +Info: Architecture.

Looks like you've already figured out the use of architecture/intrusion/detective skills. ;)

Anything that's meta-gaming post in OOC, if you like I'll start separate thread... around the table players always muse, come with theories, make guess as to where GM is going, and so on... that's a normal player banter and if there some good guesses or ideas - I always felt players should be rewarded.  But... you can't bring your meta-game guess/theory into IC. ;)

However, say you come up with a good idea based on you real life skills and knowledge which your character lacks - your character can't use it, BUT... there is another character which does have appropriate skills!  Well I have no problem with that player using your idea.  Technically this is meta-gaming but as far as I am concerned you simply help another player to RP his/her skills more convincingly.

And sorry for the delay, I will go through the specific rolls and recolves them properly soon.  Like I said before I don't get much RPOL on weekends.

P.S.  Also next weekend delay will be even longer, family trip, most likely I won't post for 4 day (Friday through Monday)

Gambling and ski hung rolls were to examine coins and weapons to learn more about the bandit’s origins.  You’ve addressed it already.  Rabbit will aid and assist where needed.

ISP is mid outage. Huge post crafted on the laptop but can't post it.

Will help Oda but have some refinements to account for the river. Will also set out about halfway between midday and sundown to follow the stream that Stile said they followed to get here.

Fix-it roll for fire starters, infiltration roll to sneak up on the bandit camp (which I should reach after dark).
