Hm, I think Nemo should fire at GD2 as well. Just to make absolutely certain it goes down.

I just think attacks should rain down until the damn thing is dead, then we switch over to the other. easy fast solution.

Right, that's probably what we're going to do; but I don't want to lock in any actions past phase 10 because we don't know what's down that second tunnel. If there's something dangerous back there, we'll have to deal with it; or if we see lolly exposed croaking him might silence these golems sooner.

Huh. If (Titans forbid) Vinny or Bill fell in battle, would our uncroaked/construct troops stop too?

Based on the comic, I would assume not, because Jetstone's Golems don't NEED Ace to command them, and same goes for Wanda's Uncroaked. They continue to exist even when they're hexes away from the caster that created them.

No, killing a caster has no effect on their creations (other than the obvious things like losing Dance Fighting / Leadership bonuses if they're being led by the caster).

Ah, but if Lolly dies, they could hypothetically disband for lack of a leader, right?

Why would that make them disband? They're constructs, they don't have upkeep. They just no longer have anyone giving them orders.

and killing lolly should be a very low priority... We want him to surender. Another high level caster on our side? esspecialy a high level dollomancer? would be like another city worth of production per turn. Killing him sounds like a horrible idea, would rather pin him down here with no golems and farm the area until we can pull in the local caster with hippymancy can pull up. Even without that, using him as a XP source would be very nice. power leveling anyone?

I see us counting chickens that have not yet hatched.

Zed-too would agree to that also. Let's just stick to the plan, see what we can do vs. the golems, and adjust as needs must.
The whole point of this is lost if you keep it a secret.

Well, at the very least moving a melee unit adjacent to Lolly might be the only thing that might convince him to surrender. But, you're right. It all depends on what we happens next. I foresee the battle becoming much less structured in the near future, anyways.

Yeah, there could be Ni golems in there. We could all die, but there is always hope.

So yeah, Regus will hold off until this develops a bit. Stack is defined as everyone but the two casters (this will change if we get casualties of course).

Turn (*Mumble*) - Marbit Hex (Broked Doors) - Round 1, Phase 10

The Tenebris attack plan executes exceedingly well, thanks in no small part to Chance's blessings. The constructs appeared ready to respond, however, and GD2 struck a resounding blow on an already-wounded Whump before it was destroyed. From their new positions, the Tenebrisians can unfortunately see reinforcements are not very far away...

Tenebris Karma : -7

Image

Rock formations are impassible and provide a +4 Cover bonus to units standing behind them.
The rubble that used to be the doors costs 1 additional move to enter the square.
Reminder: All units (except Melissa) have 1 Overland (Hex) Move remaining. Melissa has Overland (Hex) 5 Move remaining.
None of you are currently dodging. Whump has just gone, so it is currently Phase 5.
The "foggy" area indicates that the tunnel turns, but you cannot tell what is beyond it from your current positions.

I've got juice for ONE spell. Do I save it or use it to curse the remaining golem?

Also we need to send someone down to protect the gobwin. Do we know what its stats are. They aren't in either group.

well I don't like the way the karma is tilted...

mistake I would note is that Rudy should have buffed Anexa fully, which works out to a net +1 hits...

but whump is useful, we don't want him to die. At the same time, rolling less then 4 is unlikely even with the a re-roll(6 out of 36, or 1 out of 6... about 17%)... so cut losses and just let it be?
