    107 KB Riddle of Steel: Time Warp, Roman style John Galt 09/04/11(Sun)08:01 No.16176593  
    Gentlemen, continuation from >>16173878

    Sulla just smashed the hell out of that poor Bulgarian's hand. Now, it's been about six hours, so I'm going to have to run pretty soon (I'll return, of course) but I think we have time to settle some unfinished business.

    Also, general RoS, once our denouement here is done.

    Mr. Fancy Pants gave a good account of himself. So let's give a good account of his nuts to our gladius.

    All 17 on the thrust. BRING IT UP PURPLE.

    Eegh. A vindictive bunch, no? But this is sort of what I expected, and it's why we're here.
    The Bulgarian can only muster 2 dice in his defense, a full evasion at 4.

    So, 17 at 6
    2 at 4

    Huscarl is a viking, but not the berserker kind.

    and I dunno what the Genoese bloke will do, although some ranged combat would be interesting, although he'll probably only get off 1 shot is he's using an Arbalest. I think it's 2-3 rounds to reload that monster.

    At some point we should make a book which brings all the revised rules and stuff together with all the still current rules in the rulebook for ease of use, but to do that we need a good core scan!

    So if Bueno-Grande hits you with just 0 margins of success, then you still take a Strength 15 hit. that's just wrong.

    if they fight stuff just for the hell of it? YES.
    if they're constantly using the spiritual attributes or the drama points as they should, they'll have a nice margin of safe victory.

    The players learn to avoid unnecessary fights, or fights against bad odds, otherwise their characters die.

    I'm filling that break with silliness, so let's kill some camels!

    Bueno-Grande walked through the streets of Babylon sullenly, his partner Fernando following a pace behind. Their relationship had been strained since the human incident, and although it had been cleaned Bueno's halberd slung across his back was a cold reminder of that day. They were passing through the Bazzare when Bueno heard it, two voices shouting to them from down the street.

    "Oi, furrball, ditch your brown friend there and come back to our stall for a bit of the old bouncy bouncy eh?"
    Bueno spun around, growling with rage, to see a pair of Camels stood a short distance away, leaning on a wall nonchelantly and each with a Rapier hanging loosely in their grip.
    "You heard us right" The Camel on the left said,
    "Yeah" the other jeered "get out of here you furry sack of shit and leave your orange friend with us, we'll take care of him"

    Bueno growled and straightened his back, reaching behind him to pull his Halberd from his back, knowing that these Camel dogs must die for their insolence.

    Best bet it to pile onto one, drive them back and hopefully kill them, and then quickly swap attention to the other one. Divide and rule. Don't allow them to work together and surround us. Keep moving.

    Bueno has surprise on them, so if he passes his terrain then they'll be in combat for at least a round.

    This is our first suggestion, any refinement on those dice numbers?
    remember, a terrain roll at TN 3 for a charge, and then either Cut or Thrust.

    First up, CP of 14? I suggest that we keep some in reserve, and make a bumrush at Camel No. 1 and try and chop its hump off. Displace a motherfucking halberd, you motherfucking sand-drinker. Say, 8 dice on a cut attack.

    Stupid suggestion for when there's only one camel left:
    Throw the halberd at the camel, as though making a Toss maneuver.
    Follow up behind it with a motherfucking BEAR HUG.

    Toss maneuver with the halberd at the standing camel, using seven dice. I need a TN, since I think that it'd be higher than the normal 7 for a hat or glove.

    The camel, ofc, may choose to dodge. Or be hit by a flying halberd...
    >> Kzyrgis 09/04/11(Sun)11:26 No.16178038
    it is a big ass pointy stick, but you are bear. Therefore, TN of 9 will do, although that's just seeing if you hit the camel.

    So thats 7 at 9 for the bear.

    of course the camel will dodge, with it's superior agility. Someone roll 4 at 6 please.

    I was using the Crush as a homebrew attack for the Bear, because I couldn't see an equivalent in the rulebook. If I was to take more time and make this serious I might have changed it to be an opposed roll against the Camel's toughness, but I was kinda doing everything on the fly.

    and the Crush does Strenght - Opponent's toughness Damage, + MoS, so that's 8 Bludgeoning damage in total to the Camel's Zone XII.

    rolled 2 = 2

    No need to choke before you snap, but there's no need to snap now as the Camel will be unconcious longer than it takes for you to choke the life out of him. and remember his friend is on the floor incapacitated by pain, so you can stop him if you bloodlust is still unsatiated.

    We do not kill the camel that is in pain.
    This is not to the death.
    This is to the pain.
    To the pain means the first thing you will lose will be your feet below the ankles. Then your hands at the wrists. Next your nose.
    The next thing you will lose will be your left eye followed by your right.
    Your ears you keep and I'll tell you why. So that every shriek of every child at seeing your hideousness will be yours to cherish. Every babe that weeps at your approach, every woman who cries out, "Dear God! What is that thing," will echo in your perfect ears. That is what to the pain means. It means I leave you in anguish, wallowing in freakish misery forever.

    To the pain, Camel. To the pain.

    Oh, so we don't need to hold the choke for a time before he goes unconscious? That really is quite strong.

    Fight's pretty much over, then. We squeeze the life out of this one and unless the other guy manages to get over his pain we can take our time with him.
    >> Kzyrgis 09/04/11(Sun)15:51 No.16180269
    No I mean he'll take longer to choke than he will to wake up, therefore we're going to assume that those 4 rounds are skipped and the Camel is dead
    >> Anonymous 09/04/11(Sun)15:53 No.16180292
    Right, but when did he first go unconscious? We got the level 2 to the chest, but that shouldn't have knocked him out. Won't he try to escape the choke?
    >> Kzyrgis 09/04/11(Sun)15:55 No.16180325
    The Level 2 lowered his CP to 0, which did not refill on the round that we choked him therefore he falls unconcious.

    If you wanted we could roleplay our way through those 4 rounds, descibe the feeling of our massive paws tightening around the filthy Camel's throat, feeling the strength of our muscles crushing his airpipe, squeezing the life out of his scrawny neck, wringing the energy out of his furry throat until the life flees from inside his breast.
    >> Anonymous 09/04/11(Sun)16:09 No.16180498
    But only for the duration of that round, right? A level 2 shouldn't have reduced his pool for subsequent rounds, right? So we get a free round of choking him, but the next one couldn't he fight back before he falls unconscious.

    "the choker does generic damage equal to ST +
    Margin of Success (the victim’s TO is still
    factored in) that round and every round—not
    every exchange—thereafter, without re-rolling,
    until the total Pain Drops the victim’s CP below
    zero (0), when he falls unconscious for 1d10 x
    5 rounds (1d10 x 2 seconds). Maintaining the
    choke after the victim loses consciousness for
    another 1d6 +1 minutes kills him."

    Some new mod has been on a rampage the last couple of days. Most likely some innocuous comment (or possibly, the name choice) got him banned.

    Unfortunately, /tg/ has waves of this kinda crappy over-moderation. The one that hit at the end of last year actually significantly lowered the board's population, as old posters got banned or left. I don't know why they focus us instead of the actual, terrible boards like /tv/ and /sci/ where probably 80% of the threads are trolling or off-topic.

    That sounds an awful lot like /tg/ at times. The amount of /v/ shit, porn, off topic shit, and trolling on /tg/ was to the point of making /tg/ in /b/-lite. There have been a few misfires, the bannings of Touhoufag and Ribbonfag come to mind, but I do not miss the constant porn and "elf slave; wat do?"

    Also I chuckled when the mod banned some fag for starting a "Bitches of Thulsa Doom" thread.

    how do you decide on what damage level your attack has?
    >> Anonymous 09/05/11(Mon)11:46 No.16192094
    for melee weapons, look at the damage column. different attacks have different damage ratings, usually it's somewhere between str-1 and str+3, but there are exceptions.
    to that, you add the margin of success of your attack (fun fact: since you need at least one success more than the defense to actually hit, your MoS will always be at least 1), and you have your final Damage Rating (blunt weapons have special abilities based on that).
    from that, you subtract the defender's toughness, and the AV of the location hit. the final result is the level of the wound inflicted.

    I can't believe John being banned, though. Maybe he's just taking a break, or procrastinating since he's nervous about how to run the Sulla scenario. He's stated being wary of it before, so maybe he's still writing up the next opponents as we speak.
