In reply to Serafina (msg # 136):

Good question. Are they in range currently or still heading towards us or what?

Re: OOC: The Tavern
You could make a movement towards them and be in range to attack.

Morton is the closest.

The rest of you are on the other side of Morton. So he is providing a nice meat shield at the moment.

Re: OOC: The Tavern
Is there any equivalent to Unstable Platform or Mounted Combat for Powers ?

Using melee weapons in Mounted Combat must use the lower of Fighting or Riding skills (p.103)
Ranged weapons get hit by the Unstable Platform (p.109) with a -2

Bolt applies "all other usual penalties" as a ranged attack, so Unstable Platform would apply to it for purposes of hitting the target (not for activation).

Otherwise, it would come down to the GM applying any situational penalty they feel might be incurred.

could be an old answer. I will have to check the guide and see if I find anything.

Re: OOC: The Tavern
MOUNTED COMBAT
Characters fighting from horseback (or
other beasts) have certain advantages and
disadvantages in combat, as described below.
Mounts aren’t dealt Action Cards—they act
with their riders. Animals may attack during
their rider’s action if desired.
Horsemanship:
Characters who wish to
fight from horseback must use the lowest
of their Fighting or Riding skills. This also
applies to other more extraordinary mounts.
Falling:
If a character is Shaken, Stunned,
or Wounded while mounted, or his mount
is Incapacitated, he must make a Riding
roll. If he fails, he falls. If the mount was
running, the rider suffers 2d4 damage (2d6
with a Critical Failure). Increase the damage
by an additional die or two if the mount is
particularly fast, flies, or the rider falls in
particularly rough or dangerous terrain.
Missed Ranged Attacks:
Mounts and riders
are affected by the
Innocent Bystander
rules.
If a shot intended at a rider rolls a 1, it hits the
mount instead.
Wounded Mounts:
When an animal is
Shaken or Wounded, it rears or bucks. A rider
must make a Riding roll to stay mounted, or
falls as above.

Re: OOC: The Tavern
Another annoying question, is dismounting an action?  It's normally GM call, though in this setting it might be a question of if you have the proper saddle.

And no I'm not aware of an Unstable Platform penalty for powers other than ones that operate like a regular attack (i.e. if you can get a raise and extra damage on it, it's subject to the penalty).

Re: OOC: The Tavern
Oh. I thought being we were resting in the shade we would be dismounted?

Re: OOC: The Tavern
No. Unmounting only requires a movement action. So you can either move or unmount. It similar to drawing a weapon during combat.

You can be either mounted or unmounted. The choice is yours.

Re: OOC: The Tavern
I was under the impression the unofficial Arkansas State Birds were attacking when we were traveling.

I made a roll for the dismount because Camara isn't an experienced rider, but she is acrobatic, and I didn't want to disturb whoever I was riding with.

Re: OOC: The Tavern
No. You had stopped for second to catch your breath but your roll is fine. In combat you would've rolled anyway.

If Sigrun doesn't stop rolling those +4 armors this is never going to be a challenge. ;)

Camara:
She asks of no one in particular, "Are these mosquitos of unusual size common in this area?"

Hmm. Good question. ARE they, Oh DM? =)

Re: OOC: The Tavern
So I am unsure if Jackdaw is coming back or not. It doesn't appear that he has logged into RPOL for sometime. So for the time being I am moving him from PC to NPC. If he returns I will return him to PC status barring he doesn't get replaced.

We'll see, hopefully he comes back but the RPoL attrition takes no prisoners.

Re: OOC: The Tavern
Hey. Sorry. Life got...a little tragic. I'm slowly trying to ease back in to rpol, but the posting was pretty daily in this game if I remember correctly and I'm not sure I can commit to that right now. and I may have missed quite a bit I'm sure. I'll see if I can read up on what's happened.

It's really not daily. We are trying to get in a few good post a week at the moment. Nothing much has happened since you last left.

You guys were attacked by the forest. Quickly dispatched those creatures and then moved on to the Lumber yard. They are currently talking to Milton to get the last places they need for the ingredients.
