ok...

First march at my only army.

Magic Action

Mammoth Rider - 3 Save
Scorpion Knight - 3 Maneuver
Bronze Medallion - 4 Wayfare
Bronze Medallion - 4 Wayfare

Crap.

but atleast I know it would've been a crappy melee roll as well.

I'm gonna make you play it out.

EOT.

No need to update the board, it didn't change.

ok so, first march at my home:
maneuver, unopposed, up to 8.

now, I've spent a lot of time checking all the scenarios, and opted for a missile roll:

melee
melee
smite
fly
sortie

I wish I did not thought that much Smile

well since it's 0 you shouldn't roll, right?

second march at the frontier

maneuver attempt

fly

4

right, i don't get to roll against zero.

Counter maneuver:

Mammoth Rider - 3 Melee
Scorpion Knight - 3 Maneuver
Bronze Medallion - 4 Logo
Bronze Medallion - 4 Wayfare

3*2+4= no luck for you.

Actually Cliff, your maneuver roll would be: (3 + 4) * 2 = 14

You get to double all maneuver results at an Eighth face.

So the medallions aren't considered 'additive'?

Thats probably a 6 year old ruling I'm remembering huh?

Let's try melee this time:

No maneuver, melee action:

Mammoth Rider - 3ID
Scorpion Knight - 2 Save
Bronze Medallion - 4 Logo
Bronze Medallion - 4 Sortie

First the Logo...

sigh. no good spell for me to use.

just burning hands the mammoth rider.

So 10 damage to save against.

Yes, but I'm going to concede the game.

It is only a matter of time before you do the right thing which will end up killing me.

Unless you just do something really crazy, I have no path to victory. (literally)

Good game.

I'm trying to guess here, but why bring Ivory Dragons to the game with the Dragon's Lair? I'm guessing that the hope was to generate magic in the traditional way (with those nice medallions), but that doesn't align with bringing in the Dragon's Lair.

Just looking for some strategic thoughts.

Thanks.

So first off the Dragons Lair ability can't activate based on the dragons we brought, so I won't worry about it again.

First March, at the frontier. I could take a magic action to assist the other army, but its not what i designed this army to do (I'm trying to force myself into a different play style)

So Melee attack!

Behemoth - 4 Charge
Mammoth Rider - 3 Save
Scorpion Knight - 2 Maneuver
Bronze Medallion - 4 Sortie
Bronze Medallion - 4 Wayfare

hmm.. This could be bad... I wanted the Charge, but with a little more uhmph behind it.

So, the Charge SAI changes the action resolution. My melee and manuever vs your saves and melee.

The 2 Maneuvers doubles via the 8th face and then gets counted and the Sortie is 4 melee. So 8 damage against you.

Your saves will reduce that and your melee goes against me (who can't save). Any ID's you get to choose which result it is as it is a combination roll.

Ok, thanks for the game.

I'm sorry if my delay made you give up, I thought I would have time these past days, but since I'm away for work I didn't manage to roll that single die before yesterday...

Nah, it wasn't your delay. I had a small window where I could steal a victory and it was closing too fast. No need to drag out the inevitable.

If you rolled magic with your fireshadows, then any number of spells could've hurt me or force me off the terrain. If the phoenix rolled seize in missile, then either I lose a unit or it ran to reserves (either making me weaker). If you put a fireshadow at my terrain, then I would always be in danger from Smite and Counter.

I only lasted as long as I did because your fireshadows and phoenix were not reversed.

As for the ivories. I designed this to be pure melee and a quick kill. I brought the dragons lair because of its ability to land on a melee face during the initial terrain roll, not its 8th face ability.

I never expected to summon my own dragons. The last time I played this army I had two hybrids of mismatched colors.

Thanks for the info Cliff.

That's a piece of strategy I employed a little more in the game in which I am currently playing.
