OOC: Or meep can simply move N, fire offing the warrior and then retreat back S and you (Yeti) could run up to the door and seal them shut. Then we get all sneaky and ambushy.

I have only 2 MOV remaining, so I can only get next to the door, but not do anything to it. So Wubula is the only one who can close the door and seal it, and that takes 2 AP.

This is great! Let's have Wubula shoot the Warrior and close the door, as they won't have enough AP to both open it and attack us.

Oh wait, they can fire through the Apprentice, probably killing him, but also wounding us greatly. Not a good idea.

Yeah. But if Sukuzu doesn't kill the Ilwrath Warrior, we could consider having Bach fire one shot, risking friendly fire. Having one more Ilwrath warrior around is not without risk either. We do have healing items, and we will have the time to apply them after we bar the door.


I'm currently using the Fleshroaster and not my Rifle. And I'm using my Saber and not my Knife. Luki forgot to update the first post though.

By the way, who else agrees that we should have Sukuzu eat the Pretty Flower next turn, in case it gives him any advantages?

Summary: E E
IC: Even the mighty crusader Bach flew away in terror at the sight of the demon warriors' unholy visage. "God have mercy on my soul!" he screamed. "Companions -- go, and lose yourself in the frenzy of battle against your infernal siblings -- for I do not intend to die a martyr yet!"

OOC: So do you recommend that I swap my Fleshroaster for the Automatic Rifle, or is the Fleshroaster better for this?

If it's when his next turn starts, is it then guaranteed that it'll be the first move (i.e. before any other enemies move)?
36  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: SC:BEL Mission 1 on: April 02, 2009, 08:51:09 pm
I don't know about them not calling for help, the southern Warrior is heading toward the door after all (he's several squares west from where he was when we cast Psychic Radar. Still, at this point it's too late to stop him from this anyway.

We stand no chance against these unholy crusaders (without using expensive abilities, at least), so let's strategically retreat, and hopefully they'll come after us. If we flee through the eastern room, they won't be able to shoot us this turn (except for Wawa, but only with 3 strikes so he'll survive -- we could even have Wubula retreat south and then she'd take the damage instead of Wawa, but she'd also be able to attack the Warriors with full AP next turn, plus she has the Cocktails). Pity we haven't saved Mayhem, we'd have neutralized them all in one shot.

Alternatively, if we truly want to charge right now, we could use two grenades on the Synth, and Pheromones on the northeastern Warrior, but that's too risky and expensive.

Oh, and Luki: If an enemy is affected by Pheromones, does he start attacking his allies right then and there or does he wait until the enemy turn, and if it's the latter, does he move before or after the others?

Well, at least Dabir will have time to move and Son will then be able to undo his move. Which isn't really good for me as I won't get so many XP. Angry
38  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: SC:BEL Mission 1 on: March 30, 2009, 12:15:32 pm
Let's have Wawa move S-open door-N, as he's currently the most useless of us, having spent most of his abilities.

Summary: swap ranged weapon for the Fleshroaster, swap melee weapon for the Saber
IC: Suddenly, a flurry of thoughts storms Bach's mind: alien, demonic thoughts that almost make Bach shudder with fear -- and they carry with them all that the green demon has learned about the places where nearby foes lie. "Is my faith not strong enough, that the fortress of my mind is so easily conquered? Lord Jesus Christ, Thou who hast died on the Holy Cross for our sins, banish this evil from the mind of Thy unworthy servant!", he prays.

As the alien presence leaves Bach's mind, he refocuses on the task at hand and brings the Fleshroaster to bear. It has been decided: the fires of Hell shall embrace the demon priest.

OOC: Not sure if I really made the right choice, but oh well.

OOC: Dabir, I meant you should use your Psychic Radar to see what's behind these two doors -- try moving N W first for added efficiency.

EDIT: The Table Shield isn't very useful for Sukuzu, for whom melee attacks are the main source of damage, and isn't very useful for Bach or Wubula either, who'd then have to spend 1 AP to move even 1 square. Oh well, maybe we'll find a Personalized Handgun or some such for Sukuzu later.

Summary: N W W
IC: "Forward, my transient allies -- I am eager to test my prowess in battle against the demonic high priest that lies hiding behind this door! As wax melts before the fire,
so shall the wicked perish at the presence of God." Having uttered these words, Bach steps forward and prepares to remove the steel bar blocking his progress. But first he must make an important decision: will he bring the divine justice upon these wicked legions through blazing fire or cold steel? It would be an apt irony, Bach thinks, if the high priest would perish amidst the infernal flames of the unholy Fleshroaster. Still pondering these matters, he waits for the green Unclean to use his devilish powers and catch a glimpse of the foes ahead.

There's a mistake in your map, I moved before Wawa did so I should be where Wawa is now, and Dabir should revise his move.
43  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: StarControl: Behind Enemy lines on: March 24, 2009, 05:38:42 pm
Jeez, the wording of the parry rules sure does need revising. Anyway, here's the fixed calculator.

EDIT: Still not right... don't use it yet. The values don't match what you get if you make tens of thousands of tests with the diceroller and average them and compute the probabilities from this. I don't think the diceroller is wrong, so it's probably the probability calculator.

EDIT: The diceroller was wrong on at least two counts; it might be that the probcalc is good while the diceroller is broken. I'll look into it, then post the fixed versions once I get them to agree with each other (at which point there can't be any bugs left).


EDIT: Good. Fixed. The diceroller was the bugged one indeed (and it was such a trivial bug that I'm surprised it escaped my sight for so long).  Here is the fixed diceroller, and herel a link to the "statistics thing" just to have both in the same place. The two programs now agree with each other. They're friends now. Grin

EDIT 2: Yet another small bug in the diceroller fixed (this one added 1 to the number that show during which strike the death occured). Redownload it if necessary.

A slight problem here: you say that a second stun counts as a hit; does that mean that if you're already stunned and roll a stun, you stop parrying and lose one HP, or does it mean that you just fail that parry and keep rolling (if you have parries left)? The diceroller assumes the latter, so it'll have to be fixed if the former is the correct one.

OOC: Let's go to the western room first and get those XP for assassinating the high priest. We'll get a level for me and Wawa and get Wubula much closer to a level-up, plus some juicy equipment I'm sure. We're not wounded and have lots of medikits and cocktails, we apparently have one smoke grenade left (huh? where did that come from?), and both grenades.

Summary: W W W
IC: Bach moves forward to receive the saber; without even thanking Wubula for interceding on his behalf, he wrests it from Sukuzu's firm grasp and points it to the ground. He utters a prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel, then an exorcism written by His Holiness Pope Leo XIII, to drive away the countless demons that no doubt inhabited the devilish weapon. It will take more than that to infuse the saber with the Holy Power of God, but there is no time for elaborate rituals. Bach raises the sword in the air, chanting "Receive this tribute from Thy unworthy servant Grunfeld Bach, O Thou who art above all and watchest upon even Thy meekest creation! In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, Amen.", and holsters the weapon.

OOC: Because Sukuzu can still give me that weapon this turn (if Luki was even serious about him not having any MOV left).
