OOC: Note that the Ilwrath is also reduced to 1 HP, and therefore Wubula has a 75% chance of killing him.

IC: "Bear witness to the power of the Almighty Lord!"

The spider-demon had fallen much easier than Bach had anticipated; he resolved not to loot its unholy items, and proceeded forth toward the corner of the building to check whether any of the Unclean still resided there.

Summary: N E E E

Now it's much better (though I'm not sure why you renamed "dodges" to "parries"), but here's a small rule question: say there's an enemy unit (named A) two squares west and another one (B) three squares west of you; can you choose which of them to fire or do you have to fire at A, and if you can choose then (if you choose B) does friendly fire count as hitting A?

Well you don't have to shoot it, you could've just picked the Paingiver and let Wubula use Playback (after Suzuku let her occupy his place, of course). Anyway, we still have two grenades, so it's probably not going to be a problem.

There goes a perfectly good power for neutralizing groups of enemies... The Syreen's Playback (or perhaps just Confusion, though the spider could've just fled if he was merely Confused, thus allowing the effect to wear off) would've been a better choice, or just plain shooting.

EDIT: Although, there might be more Ilwrath around the corner, so maybe it wasn't that bad of a move.

No, I was going with what'd be smarter from your point of view if you agree on in which order you move.

Why would it be "smarter"? If Bach moves first, then we avoid friendly fire.

Ok, I sniff around, give the Ilwrath my best you-are-going-down stare, yell: "You rotten 8-legged larval freak! I'm gonna turn you into nice little fillets with my paws, roast you with my anger and sterilize your appendages so I can use them as cocktail sticks to serve my comrades! Kyaiee!!!" and engage the enemy Cheesy

You actually had the time to say all that while attacking him, you freaky Sullustan on speed!? Wink

So I move two squares north to face the Ilwrath (0 AP consumed right?); then I fire my handgun in his head (1 attack, 1 AP) following that with the paws of fury and a bite to his/hers metathorax (4 attacks(?), 1 AP)...

OOC: and what was the effect? *blink blink*

Why, pray tell, did you not attack him with your melee weapon twice instead of attacking him first with your handgun and then with your paws?

EDIT: And since I have two moves already, I'm waiting for Wawaweewa and Wubula, and then you need to tell me the order of execution. I assume I start with Sukuzu, but then what? Or do you want to just go with first post first move straight away? That's a bit more risky for you, but easier to play...

With Suzuku? You mean with Bach?

OOC: Okay, so I suppose we're waiting for Son_of_Antares to melee-attack the Ilwrath, so that then Wubula can step forward and shoot him to death (if he hasn't died already -- he has a probability of dying of 1423251/1679616, which is to say about 0.85)?
You can walk through other players as long as you don't end up on the same square as one. So it would be better to do it in the reversed order: Wubula stepping forward two steps, firing, then Suzuku stepping forward two steps, and do a melee attack. And if the Ilwrath is still alive, either Wawaweewa or Bach can do a step sideways and fire, risking friendly fire.

Yeah, but I'm not sure if such a waste of ammunition would be a good idea -- 85% seems good enough (though Bach firing once would raise the probability to slightly more than 95%, which is to say basically a sure kill), and by the way I'm not sure whether the results of the rolls are communicated once the turn is ended or after each player's move. Oh well, I suppose 3 rounds out of 60 isn't much.

And by the way, Dabir, it wouldn't hurt if Wawaweewa picked up the Paingiver -- it has two attacks as opposed to one, and can't require more than 2 STR to use (as the Ilwrath has, just like you, only 2 STR).

IC: Bach was happy to be under the open skies once again, even if it was on an alien, devilish world far from the planet granted to Man by godly decree. In front of him was a hideous spider-like demon, no douby hailing from the deepest pits of Gehenna. Entrusting his fate to God, he leapt forward and took a shot at the fiend's thorax.

Summary: 2 North, 1 West, Ranged Attack on Ilwrath apprentice.

Example: If your movement range is 4, moving 1 square will leave you with two action points, moving 2 or three squares will leave you with one and moving 4 squares will leave you with none. However, if you start your turn by opening a door, this uses one action point and you can now only move 2 squares.

I'm going to assume that this example is slightly wrong, as three is more than half of 4.
And by the way, if there is more than one friendly unit in the line of fire, and I score a friendly fire, which one of them gets hit? One of them at random, or all of them?

I shall endeavour to participate in this undertaking.
(Translation: I'll play.)

Grünfeld Bach (don't ask)

Grünfeld is a devout (which here is just an euphemism for fanatical) German Neo-Protestant radical. He is the member of a sect who split from Jason MacBride's Homo Deus cult; Bach's sect believes in the superiority of humanity over all other races, equating them all with the spawn of Satan (their word for them is "Unclean"). He was caught by the United Nations Security Force while attempting to place a bomb within the Syreen embassy in Los Angeles; recognizing his abilities, however, and the dire need of the Alliance for experienced operatives, Corridor Nine requested that he be released under the condition that he serves under them in the Great War. In a moment of weakness (which he later rationalized, thinking that his death would lead to no good, while his service would lead to the death of many of the Unclean), Bach accepted the offer, and he is now forced to work alongside a full-alien crew, praying each night that God releases him from this terrible burden.

Fun Fact: Bach likes to dual-wield two pistols, but is terribly disappointed that, for some reason, whenever he tries to grab a pistol with his left hand, the one in his right hand mysteriously slips back to his inventory, and he is paralyzed for three seconds.

Appearance: Bach is in his mid-thirties, and has a buzz cut which reveals a cross tattooed on his head. His facial features and black eyes reveal an authoritarian, dominant personality. His chest is heavily scarred, the result of a grievous burn he suffered early in his service to his sect. He has also painted a cross on his weapon (as part of a ritual in which he consecrated it to God).
