It's no XCom alien, but would this be an acceptable new look?

No. Only units and structures adjacent to the Target, and between the Target and the Firing Unit can grant a Cover bonus.

tigerusthegreat wrote:Question regarding LOS: what squares can see into the N11/12 corridor? would L 10 be able to see into it?
The corridor is actually N12/13, so I assume you mean L11. L11 would be able to reveal some of the additional corridor, but you'd really need a unit at L12 or M12 to see down the entire way.

If no other players have any objections, we can consider all of the PCs in the tunnel to have cautiously retreated. The golems do not react if this action is taken.

Best option seems to be retreat and end turn guarding tge door and contacting our leadership.

Possibly... But what if there's another entrance? And could they try to sneak attack us at night? (If only we had a door that we could block from the outside... :evil: )


I agree that we should tackle this slowly... Hm..... I want to try and parley with them.

Nemo resumes his previous archer warlord disguise, and mounts Melissa. Leaving everyone else covering him at the tunnel entrance, he marches down the tunnel the minimum distance needed to speak with the golems, and declares:

"We knew not that this hex contained but wild-popped Marbits. You mentioned the elves; know that my kinsmen of Tenebris at this very moment wage war on them to the south.

I am Noone Ofimp Ortance, and my mission was to seek out mercenaries out here in the northern regions. At this I have succeeded, and the company I have gathered now camps upon the threshold. Our purpose in this hex was no more than to seek easy Exp.

As you desired, I have introduced myself. Speak now your own name, nature and purpose."

{Now's our chance - someone chuck a rock at that Puppy Dog so it chews up Nemo}

Wegio watched as the Kitty Cat and the Foolamancer squeezed past, and rolled his eyes at Whump and Zed2.

Yeah leave it up to our dollamancer to investigate their dollamancer. Some upcoming dollamancer vs dollamancer action, I think. :P

Wait ! On reading that back it did not sound at all the way I meant it :o :shock:

Yeah....Vinny is very flexible, but Human/Marbit might be pushing it a bit :p

It occurs to me that we should have twigged that something odd was happening when we saw a bunch of wild marbits with some elaborate golems. Those things don't just pop in the wild as a rule.

Especially those splody mice. How would they breed? As soon as they get excited they detonate.

nothing breeds, or more nothing reproduces as the comic has shown they do copulate frequently.

natural creatures spawn by eating smuckers, I just assumed the golems spawned randomly. But yeah, I had forgotten about a lot of the main thread. I should have remembered the marbit caster.

Anex whispers to Regus " That sounds like one dollamancer that's not fabricating with a full bale of cloth. Either that or he's playing with us...no-one knows everything or lives forever, indeed...ha-ha. Either way we'd best be careful what we say and do. Take heed of the implied threat that no-one has angered him and lived to tell the tale ! "

Anex smiles sweetly at Whump "Now you see why it might have been polite to knock ? Or even see how the doors opened before we tried breaking them ?"

She whispers to Rudy " Rudy, stay close behind and lets get a sight down that corridor from a distance out. I may need your support to cover Nemo's retreat. If that's what is ordered."
*She goes to find cover from which she can sight down the corridor to Nemo. *

"My desire... Is to see the most benefit to my side.

In pursuit of this, I must know your intentions. If you are an enemy of the elves, then speak so plainly.




OOC:
Man, when I picked the name, (or lack thereof) I had no idea how much potential there was in it. :D

To assuage everyone's fears, here's what I'm doing: (spoiler'd for Marbit's sake, to keep meta knowledge out of the parley)
Spoiler: show
So, right now I'm trying to keep Lolly talking as much as possible, to get as much information as possible from it (yes, it -for now at least).

When I feel I've gotten as much as I can, I'll make the best offer I can to join us. Not necessarily as in on our side, or even as a mercenary; but if I can in any way set Lolly against the elves, I shall do so.

If that fails, then we'll have to make certain that Lolly is no threat to Tenebris, one way or another...


(I actually have several plans about how to take out the dogs with minimal casualties, but they all require exact positioning and synchronization. I'll go over them if and when the time comes to storm the tunnel.)

Lolly responds, "I intend to keep doing what I'm doing - crafting my toys and protecting my realm. I am not an enemy of the Elves, nor am I an ally. I am a Marbit, and while I shall not be an ally of yours, I need not be an enemy. Then again, I do have oh so many toys... perhaps it is time I took a capital for myself. Are you very attached to yours?"

If Nemo is in the tunnel, can he see down the passageway to the right?
If not, can he slink forward enough to do so?
It's all well and good to take out the Puppy Dogolems, but what if there are mechanical cats around the corner?

OOC: if only Will were here. He'd say, somewhat meta-savvy, "You're welcome to try. You're not the first jumped up hole dweller we send to the Titans." But since he's not, and we have Zed-too ... /OOC

"If you want a capital, can't you make your toys build one?"

Nah, we fought mice first, so if there were cats we'd see them before the dogs...
