Assuming that the butterbears don't join in on the fight, we're looking at attacking a stack of 5 gobwins with a total of 20+5d6 combat, and an average of 2.6 def. We have to do 20 damage to croak them all, requiring a total of 52 damage from combat and rolls from our attacking force. (We croak 1 at 41.6, 2 at 44.2, 3 at 46.8, 4 at 49.4, 5 at 52.)

We seem to be split on if the attack on the gobwins if going to happen this turn or the next. There are also 3 different orders to grab the same sword.

We have two players who have decided to use their actions preparing for a fight.

I've decided I'm going to spend the turn preparing for combat. I'll bring more food for everyone.

M4 "Pod" will croak J-Raff*, Order M11 to (help croak J-raff*, eat, fill Pod's bag with meat, and go SE), go SE, and go SE. (*If the J-raff goes down after just Pod's attack, M11 is instead ordered to (eat, fill Pod's bag with meat, go SE, and harvest sample from mushroom.

"Cowards! I am willing to go into battle with just one comrade. We should charge, while the gobwins are separated and away from their dire mounts. Alternatively you could order the NPC's to fight with us. They make good meat shields."

OOC: If the mounted gobwins come back we'll get our ass handed to us. We should go in now while they are separated and take the hut.

Lamech, my orders weaponised the nearest NPC's and stacked them for battle. I realised that with 3 vs 5 we get just as you described "our ass handed to us" . Last turn after we discovered goblin riders, surprise surprise THEY attacked. I'm expecting these to do the same which is why I suggested we stack up. So far only 2 marbits have stacked so depending on LTDave interpretation its 4 vs 5 or 5 vs 5 which will run it close. As it is we've got a possible 20 + 8D6 with defence of 2.8 which again runs them close but if other marbits join the stack we'll do far better.

if the riders and tribal join up we can't match their max 8 stack because of what the wolves bring to the party so we're goosed if that happens anyway

You know I do believe if someone Stacks up and Fights...then the whole stack fights !... it's that simple.

Well sure, but how do the members of a stack with no move left cross the hex boundary?

Combat in Gobwin Hut Hex:

5 Marbits, El Tigre 4 Shovels, 1 Sword, 1 Crossbow, 1 Shield, 1 Heavy Armour
16 Defence between 6 units = 2.6
26 Combat +6 d6

5 Gobwins, 2 Axes, 3 Spears, 3 Shields
13 Defence between 5 units = 2.6
20 Combat +5 d6


Round 1:
Marbits 26 base combat + 24 random = 50 hits / 2.6 average defence = 19 hits inflicted

Gobwins 20 base combat + 19 random = 39 hits / 2.6 average defence = 15 hits inflicted

Round 2: Last Gobwin is cwoaked. No hits inflicted in reply.

Rules (such as they are)
Spoiler: show
Marbit Island is a play-by-post game run by me. Each player will be a Marbit, looking to survive and succeed.
Move is the most important stat. It determines the number of actions you can take in a turn - move into other hexes, gather food, cut trees, build, etc.
Post your orders on the forum. For this game, orders will be resolved in the order in which they were posted - no editing of your posts, please!
This gives an advantage to early posters to grab equipment and resources, but allows later posters to know what has happened before they give their orders - so later posters can eat the food others harvest, or use tools they create.
Marbits like to eat. At least once per turn. Marbits do not eat automatically, but must be given an order to eat.
If a Marbit is unable to eat, he will become hungry, and will be marked with a black dot. A hungry Marbit that does not eat will cwoak.
Marbits may hold up to two items in their hands. It takes an action to equip one or more items. Excess items are dropped in the hex.
If the weather turns bad, Marbits will need to take shelter in a hut. A hut can shelter up to six Marbits.
Combat is a dangerous game. Combat plus d6 per fighter divided by enemy defence is hits inflicted. Hits are distributed equally across the stack before any one unit is cwoaked. Defence is calculated by the first 8 units' defence averaged across the whole stack, rounded down to one decimal (so 1 unit with 3 defence has defence of 3, but a stack of 20 units with 3 defence have a defence value of 1.2).
Marbits who do not submit orders within the allotted time will default to eating once, and then singing lewd lyrics drafted into popular musicals.
NPC Marbits may be given orders by Player Marbits. It takes one action to give a set of orders to one NPC. The first player to issue orders to an NPC controls it for that turn (no befriending).
Marbits may "scout" a neighbouring hex for 2 move - essentially, they stick their head over the border, have a look, and then return. At the beginning of the next turn, the scouted hex will be revealed on the map.
It costs 2 move to enter a neighbouring hex, unless the border is marked with a brown line, representing a road. It costs 1 move to enter a hex with along a road.
All the necessary information should be displayed on the map, above. Any questions? Just ask.

So if I took as much damage as everyone else, what's the point of a ranged weapon?
