  • What I wrote was as you say narrative, yes it happened, but it wasn't what we being rolled for as stakes in conflict. Thus there was no "Challenge" of that nature as Sigismund's rolls never authorized a Challenge. My statement was "it" (the Challe…
  • I agree about 1:1 resolution on something where the situation is really reduceable to that without violence to any Character's roles/views/nature etc. There was no "Sigismund tries to kill both" challenge, Sigismund lost his initiative, that never…
  • So I understand, you're not saying that I'm reading the wiki version of rules incorrectly when I read them to state in a multiple challengers situation, with same character answering, the answerer rerolls for each challenge (thus perhaps rolling wel…
  • I took it Bergen was helping Wanda - it seemed to me he and she both wanted her to avoid harm, he be willing to take it instead, she won so avoided it straight out, but if not then doesn't the wiki state that when multiples, having picked up and rer…
  • I've updated my response in IG thread to narrate outcome.
  • The "keys" comparison is a good one. Don't know if we want to "nail it down", but I am thinking that to be a valid alternative this needs to be a permanent shift in Sigismund's priorities (made feasible in part by the fact I'm interpreting being …
  • (very cool alternative) I would offer this version of that: Sigismund sees in the failure of every effort he has made to obtain justice that his faith in such in this world or the last (rather than "the next" given his current position) has been m…
  • Please proceed with Wanda's roll, to see if she was challanger etc. The text of the Defend action includes attacking others, the text of no other description type includes that. This is not dissimilar to Afraid/DitV (Vincent's other works) in that…
  • Was beaten and rolled less than half, suck it up and exhausted (dice lost to be chosen by victor), and so unable to take direct action, retreating to his cold bones in the ruined mansion to brood. [spoke too soon, made moot, really it was Wanda res…
  • The d4 not working when I pass over, if it does for others, that's the roll if not try this (think it's the extra space before bracket) #DiceRoller( 1d4 )
  • Defending then from the Challenge above, so picking up and rerolling #DiceRoller( 1d10 ) #dice ( 1d4 )
  • The roaring flames are faster than Bergen and strike both him and Wanda with lethal force, killing both. Grace - Defending Self #DiceRoller( 1d10 ) #DiceRoller( 1d4 )
  • Given how you've played NPC's in the past, with everyone and their uncle coming in against Sigismund whether they were in the scene or not, figured might as well go for killing everyone then anyway. The rules say: Defending myself: physically, arm…
  • The ghost of Sigismund having followed Bergen to the cottage and seeing his path preceeded him. Here dwells that wretched woman and here dwells that willingly blind fool who raised her. His rage is overwhelming. The warmth he has absorbed, leavin…
  • right you are, Sigismund was beaten and won't oppose Bergen leaving.
  • Sigismund puts more effort into his challenge, if knowing Wanda's role is unclear, Ilsa's role is clearer and Bergen should see that without doubt. (striking self from owe list, now not one it at all) #DiceRoller( 1d6 ) added to the 5 from above.
  • Ah I see, except the rules say GM characters never go on the owe list, that's in the wiki as a Vincent-sourced statement. I will strike myself off the owe list immediately to roll a d6 on top of my 5 then.
  • For Owe list - among those rolling against me, both Bergen and Ilsa had more sides and neither doubled me on first roll of conflict, so I think that means I'm owed.
  • Okay, so I beat everyone but Wanda, and was over half her roll. So I can "Give" at this point and Bergen believes Ilsa was involved but not Wanda? Didn't lose to her badly enough to suffer dice loss. That's fine then.
  • Grace (infuencing others) - Challenge if winning initial roll - Bergen, Ilsa and your daughter murdered Sigismund. #DiceRoller( 1d4 ) #DiceRoller( 1d10 )
  • I don't think I'm on the owe list am I - might have been when you forgot about the dice side count.
  • I've lost initiative in Mansion and will reroll as answerer once Bergen's challenge roll/challenge is established.
  • Grace (infuencing others) - Challenge if winning initial roll - Ilsa and your daughter murdered me! #DiceRoller( 1d4 ) #DiceRoller( 1d10 )
  • Coming through what once must have been a pleasant garden, flowers run wild to give what might make a pleasant rendezvous for lovers, he comes closer to the foundation where stones have given way and there is a sinkhole of a sort as the earth collap…
  • Is the preferred use of the Board for games to keep IG threads to minimum or to create different threads for different scenes etc. (e.g., as the IAWA game is doing)?
  • Posted By: yellowparisTroels' answer Well, yeah, that's pretty much right. The GM's minor duty is the playing of NPCs (technically, there could be no NPCs in a game, though that'd be pretty dull for the GM). The major duty, then, is ensuring fair ba…
  • okay, you objected, you [Bergen] are the answerer by the dice, but a conflict over "does he come in and find the bones" seems sorta piddly, not actually "against his interest" and also very "task" level rather than "conflict level". Until a concl…
  • Grace (infuencing others) - Challenge if winning initial roll - Ilsa and your daughter murdered me! #DiceRoller( 1d4 ) #DiceRoller( 1d10 )
  • Bergen, being a man of good heart, is drawn by what sounds like a man's cry of pain and surprise, is if a severe wound was suddenly inflicted. He is cautious in his approach, who knows what bandits or worse might be at work but he is not one to ign…
  • re dice exchanges, ah I see, thanks. All you really needed to say was "that was all in the past, including the post-script scene", as I wasn't trying to alter continuity, as I said.
