I've stated before that I'm not going to fully define or micromanage upkeep, and all numbers are approximate. If it makes you feel better, you can imagine that you're actually getting a few extra shmuckers each turn, but it doesn't really matter.Swodaems wrote:shouldn't the loss of a 1 UP imp during turn 7 have decreased our upkeep by 5 during turns 8&9?
Bill will need to use his action to take over the horde.Swodaems wrote:If Bill starts a round stacked with a Warlord and some uncroaked, will the stack automatically become a hoard if the Warlord uses his action to destack? Or would Bill need to use his action to recreate the stack as a hoard?
No.Swodaems wrote:If a dodging unit is Bull rushed, does it stop dodging?
Swodaems wrote:Will a stunned, calmed, immobilized, or incapacitated unit still be able to stop enemy units from passing thru adjacent squares? And how do units with those conditions react if bull-rushed?
Stunned, Calmed, Immobilized: Stops enemy units. Resolve Bull Rush as normal. Bull Rushing a Calmed unit breaks the Calm. Incapacitated: Does not stop enemy units. Bull Rush as if Dodging. (Since rules are locked down right now, I'm not going to make any additional changes, but we can discuss adding modifiers to Bull Rush based on these actions in the future.)
Results of Tod's & Creperum's Info Gathering and Tactical Diplomacy
Tod had his bracer the entire time, but kept it hidden in his Purse except when he was securely away from prying eyes.
Turn 6: Creperum contacts the Ixian ruler, a female Queen named Maude Dibs. Creperum introduces himself, stating that they appear to have a mutual enemy in the Breatheairians, and hints that some mutually-beneficial arrangements might be made in the near future. He informs Tod that Maude expresses interest but appears very cautious, as she has never heard of the Tenebrisians before now. Maude suggests that she be allowed to send a few units into the region to substantiate the claims, and Creperum replied that he will consider the offer and respond in a few turns. Buffy informs you that Charlie can provide a detailed dossier on Ix for the low, low price of 25,000 shmuckers, non-negotiable. Partial information will not be released, Buffy informs Tod, because she's sure that Tod is such a capable and intelligent Warlord that, given limited information, he'll surely be able to fill in most of the blanks on his own, gaining the full value of the dossier for a fraction of the cost. She smiles and bats her eyelashes.
Turn 7: Tod sends a Thinkagram to Zoltarus. Tod is barely able to begin introducing himself before Zoltarus sharply cuts him off, shouting "Too soon, too soon!" and breaks the connection. Attempting to initiate a Thinkagram to Amandaria simply fails; beasts are not capable of higher-order thinking that Thinkagrams require.
Turn 8: Charlie agrees to unconditionally convert a single turn of the non-agression pact to an alliance that will terminate at the beginning of the Breatheairian turn on Turn 9.
Turn 9: Cupid, Tod, Brick, Bill and Rona make their way out towards the Elven army. Once parley commences, Armolad glares haughtily at Tod's request, but after a few long moments, Tod receives a Thinkagram from the King In Green.
Tod: "I'm going to be blunt and tell you that I'm here to seek peace terms that are more favorable to us than to you. If the force I'm looking at is any indication, you can't really afford to be fighting us at the moment. You have another war going on with the side of Ix that is eating up your resources. ... My offer amounts to this: peace for 50 turns in exchange for Rainbow Springs and agreements to sell Logan's Run and Scarlet Hills with its associated mine relatively cheaply should we raise the funds during those 50 turns."
The King In Green: "You arrogant upstarts! I will crush your pathetic side!" The King terminates the Thinkagram.
Tod and company mount up and head back to Dis. Shortly after arriving, Tod receives a Thinkagram from King Creperum:
