Okay, here's one that caused a lot of discussion last week. I'm only getting around to posting it now because Stan keeps bugging, like he couldn't do it him self. Confused

When in reserves, and an all Amazon army rolls a missile attack against their home or the frontier, do only the missile icons count, or do the IDs as well?

We can't find anything in the current rules set. Stan's of the opinion that they should count, Wes thinks they shouldn't, but I'm riding the fence 'cause I'm just not sure. I can see it from both points of view.

Chuck? Cliff? Scott? Bueller?

rules wrote:
Reserve Attack: Amazons, when in the reserve area, cannot use magic. Instead they may select an enemy army at their home terrain or the frontier and take a missile action. If part of a multiracial army in the reserve area, Amazon missile results are counted when the other units roll for magic.


Notice that it says "take a missile action" and "Amazon missile results". Then under "Missile Action" in the rules it says:
rules wrote:
After selecting a target, roll your army and count the number of missile and ID icons that appear. Each point of missile counts as one point of damage to the defending army. If and only if any normal damage is inflicted, the defending army rolls for saves. Subtract the number of saves from the amount of damage inflicted and remove this number of health points from the defending army.

Notice that it says "number of missile and ID icons". So of course they count. And just in case there is someone thinking; "What about SAIs?", just remember, this is a Missile Action. So any SAI that has an effect during a Missile Action, has it's effect happen. That includes Bullseye and Stone, the two favorite Amazon missile SAIs.

Okay, that's the way I was leaning (and we'd seen that section, but were not sure it applied to 'zons in reserves), so now I get to tell Stan he was right, and endure his smug expressions for a few hours.
