    "Poor Weedle--you're of no use to me dead. Return!

    It's time for a real stray cat. It's up to you, Casanova!"

    Meowth-pose.png

    Casanova the Meowth strikes a pose and attacks with Payday!

    Spoiler:

    Sandshrew is unaffected by the attack, but the crowd doesn't really seem to care as furious applause erupts for the emergence of Meowth! Elliot Tehm's stress is reduced to 5, and Sandshrew's attacks are reduced by 1 for the rest of the turn.


    Also, I picked a bad stress thing for the pokemon I picked.

    Lucedes: also remember this whole system is mostly untested, so I am noting all feedback and will be looking at improving the system after the tournament.

    Wait, what happened to the field effect?

    Meowth's bonus power:
    Feint Attack: You do not suffer negative effects from making an unsuccessful attack and your opponent never benefits from you making an unsuccessful attack.

    So is Lucedes's other attack come into effect now--or did it already come into effect? Basically, was Meowth at 1/7 stress before, and then Payday, and now it's Lucedes's turn, or did Meowth do the payday, Lucedes's Sandshrew hit twice for 3, and now it's my turn again?

    edit: and as for question 2, are we counting weedle's poison? If so, if it's option 1, sandshrew's about to take his second poison tick? Or is it option 2, and it's my turn again, and sandshrew has 1 stress?

    So confused.

    I'll rule that we won't count weedle's poison, as it's too much backtracking, but I'll let meowth have his turn he missed after throwdown. That means meowth's turn you just did happened before sandshrew's attacks and now you get to act again. After that we're back to normal.

  • piLpiL Registered User regular
    So that mean's Sandshrew's attacks would be reduced by 1 from payday, and so he would be 4 stress down instead of 6, or is that not really fair?

    Meowth staggers in the torrent of sand and hurls his lucky coin once more.

    Pay Day
    Spoiler:


    The audience cheers on the plucky Meowth who (as I understand it) has 3 stress left. Elliot Tehm's stress is reduced to 4, and Sandshrew's attacks are reduced by 1.

  • SUPERSUGASUPERSUGA Registered User regular
    Yeah, it'll be 4 stress.

  • LucedesLucedes Registered User regular
    alright. i think Stress Fix happens for both non-stress-causing Paydays. Nice Trainer is at 3 Stress.

    "Sandshrew, just keep doing your best!"

    Sandshrew kicks yet more sand at elliot tehm's pokemon. A trend is beginning to emerge...

    more sand attacks! always more sand attacks.: 1d6 2

    It does nothing! The crowd cheers for Casanova! Nice Trainer pouts.

    Casanova keeps on keeping on. The audience seems thrilled.
    Elliot Tehm's stress is reduced to 4, Nice Trainer is reduced to 2. Sand Shrew's attacks reduced by 1. And I wonder whether I broke Orokos :(

    :^: Egos, I'm glad it was caught--I almost named him Setzer instead. The thing is that both of us have a 50% chance of doing damage every time we're rolling these dice. It's just that we're never actually doing it.

    After watching this very relaxing pokemon battle for some time, Nice Trainer decides some stuff should actually get done.

    "All RIGHT! Get on with it, Sandshrew! GIGA POWER SMASH!"

    Of course, Sandshrew really only knows two attacks. None are remotely close to that. It is confused.

    "Just... more sand! MORE SAND! THE MOST SAND!"

    Sandshrew seems to get it, and redoubles his efforts.
    A truly pitiful amount of sand hits the Meowth. It looks mildly inconvenienced.

    Sand Attack + Follow Through! Boogaloo!: 2d6 = 4,1

    1 more stress to Casanova, bringing it up to 5.
    Sand Attack and Defense Curl both trigger.

    Nice Trainer takes stress again: 1d6 6.

    ...

    bringing her up to 8 stress. Out of sheer rage and frustration, she pulls out a cigarette and sits down.

    "Just... just do whatever you want, Sandshrew, I really don't care any more."

    Especially on a turn like this, I know it's mean of me, but--I had best just Payday again.

    Sorry everybody--I promise to try and be more interesting when defenses aren't 5!

    Meowth paydays
    Spoiler:

    Elliot's stress is down to 3. God save his boring soul.

  • LucedesLucedes Registered User regular
    More sand attacks. Nice Trainer down to 7 stress.

    She smokes, staring disconsolately at her sandals, ignoring the match.

    Sand... Endless Sand...: 1d6 3

    "Alright Casanova, they're distracted, slip in there and Fury Swipes!"

    Meowth stops playing the crowd and leaps upon sandshrew with powerful agility, using break defense and Fury Swipes!

    Elliot Tehm's stress becomes 6
    Sandshrew takes one stress
    Casanova gives a thumbs up to the sleeping crowd.

    The dice wont let things happen :(

    Edit: I thought, get less than 4, add 1d6, get 3 or more, get a second attack, maybe!

    Nice trainer continues to smoke, lounging at 7 stress.

    "Sandshrew, you may be goddamn invincible, but at least try to get a hit in. Please?"

    Sandshrew contemplates, then Rapid Spins.

    Rapid Spin! Yeah!: 1d6 4.

    2 defense, -1 for being over stress, means Casanova takes 1 more stress, putting his stress to 6.

    Sandshrew loses 1 stress.

    FC: 0559-8026-2690
  • piLpiL Registered User regular
    Meowth tosses another coin, catching the sandshrew in his eye for maximum damage!

    Spoiler:

    That damage is 2 because of the -1 for being over stress. Sandshrew's at 2 stress, Elliot is knocked back to 5, and Casanova is sitting pretty as he always does!

  • LucedesLucedes Registered User regular
    "...shrew..."

    "Oh, no! Sandshrew!" Nice Trainer looks slightly unsettled and quite concerned.
    She perks up and starts paying attention to the match again.
    "Keep trying your best! Rapid Spin, Sandshrew!"

    Come on, Rapid Spin!: 1d6 2

    Sandshrew goes down to 1 stress.

    Casanova apparently means business (even if he didn't mean too much business when he used his special)
    Payday!
    Spoiler:
    Sandshrew takes 2 stress summing to 3, Elliot's stress drops to 4, and Casanova is scared.

    "Oh, come on, Sandshrew! We can do it! Spin like a top!"

    Sandshrew's fighting spirit emerges! It spins like a champion, dropping to 2 stress!

    Spin spin spin!: 1d6 5

    2 -1 -1 = 1!

    With a rousing haymaker spin, Sandshrew finishes this round!
    Time to see if Sandshrew can make this a hat trick!

    !!! Poliwag emerges! I drew a picture really fast, but I didn't like it, so I'm not posting it. You can GIS for a poliwag though, I'm sure.

    "That sandshrew took out our guitarist and our drummer. It's up to you, Poliwag--Watergun!"
    Spoiler:

    Poliwag avenges his friends with 7 stress to the sandshrew. Elliot, being the ruthless trainer he is, drops another stress down to 3.

  • LucedesLucedes Registered User regular
    ouch. Nice Trainer looks suddenly crestfallen.
    She rummages around in her bag for Sandshrew's pokeball, and returns him.

    "All right, let's go! ABRA!"
    An ABRA appears! Yes, it's an Abra.

    "Psychic Shock! Shock that Poliwag!"

    Psychic Shock!: 1d6 3

    Shoot. Nice Trainer's still at 7 stress, so it deals no stress.

    Abra gets shocked.

    Abra...: 1d6 6

    Abra takes 4 stress, putting it nearly to the stress limit!

    ...these last rolls have been incredibly harsh.

  • piLpiL Registered User regular
    I think the dice are trying to make up for all the non-events that were going on.

    "Poliwag! Finish Abra off! Water Gun!"

    Water Gun!: 1d6+1 5

    Poliwag's water gun deals 3 damage to Abra, finishing it off. It looks like it's coming down to each trainer's last pokemon!

    i'm out of this.

    Nice Trainer grimaces as Abra faints and she digs into her purse for the last pokeball.

    "Well... I hate to even think about this... but we've got to try, Ponyta!"

    Ponyta whinnies nervously, eyeing the water-type on the field.

    "THE CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE! PONYTA, DO YOUR BEST!"
    Spoiler:

    ...it fails spectacularly.

    Nice Trainer finally breaks down.

    "We just can't do this, can we?" She looks at Ponyta. "I don't want to see you get hurt any more."

    Recalling her pokemon, she slinks defeatedly out of the arena. It's time to find a pokecenter and some ice cream.

    Nice Trainer has conceded the match!

    Good match Lucedes. A lot of all-or-nothing dice rolls in the current system. But that's what play-testing is to discover.
