    It says area adjacent. Doesn't that mean the tile itself and all the ones around it?
    Yes, but Ben moved to another area.

    You just have to move once, send, then keep moving

    Ahhhh, ok. Yep, I was looking at the Map and forgetting that Ben's new move was that new tile. My fault!

    Okay, so switching the order will fix it?

    Black Drake's fate <----> Godfried

    Lost Family

    If another kingdom character moves adjacent to this empire character, the moving kingdom character gains the empire character as an ally.

    Is it automatic without fighting? So we could just even let the princess or zyne move next and auto-acquire them as an ally?

    If i wanted to be an edgelord, I would take that "Hitler learns the war is over" meme and sub in my own words.

    No wait, even better! I Sun Bro emote at the dragon and he responds back in kind.

    Okay so fighting the dragon is just bad now. I guess austin should just move next to him and take him as an ally?

  • AustinP0027AustinP0027 Registered User regular
    Yeah, that simplifies things greatly.

    Two moves to get next to him, 8 resources spent, so I can take two moves to grab more resources to have the ability to keep moving out of the mountains after I get in. Just won't go above 3 troop count.

  • NotoriusBENNotoriusBEN Registered User regular
    I am now inundated with troops, but Im in a good position to do healing or send troops to others that need them. Ill have a better idea on what to do with that next turn.

    Oh crap, I'm up next (was just looking to see who to ping :bigfrown: ).


    Send 2 soldiers to Princess
    Collect (+3 resources)
    Move SW (5 3 resources spent)
    Move NW (7 5 resources spent)
    Gain Drake as Ally since I moved next to him

    I had you starting your turn at 5 soldiers. You started with 3, then had 2 sent to you by the Hermit. Sending 2 to the princess, you have 3 left. So it should be 3 resources to move SW into the plains, then 5 to move into the mountains.

    Unless I missed some order? Confirm @AustinP0027

    MrBody on
  • AustinP0027AustinP0027 Registered User regular
    Nope, my fault. I did the math for moving with 5 soldiers, then sent the 2 and didn't adjust appropriate.

    I'll edit.

    Map
    MTDOcOn.jpg
    Enemies with red backgrounds are aggressive, and will begin moving towards the nearest kingdom hero 1 space per turn as soon as one enters within a 1 area range.
    Blue background: defensive, will never move.
    White: Will move only to attack adjacent kingdom hero.

    Remember you must pause and draw a fate card the first time a character moves into the same area or adjacent space as an empire general (exceptions: Black Knight, King of the Abyss, Emperor).

    Going over the mountain, boys!
    Guess the princess' name is Hannibelle.

    So... what's our move? We gotta go west because we need to kill the Cancellor (dude with devil horn white hair). We cant win if he's still alive.

    Also, maybe we push for the desert? because the princess will bog in the mountains with her troops atm. But that means fighting the devil probably.

    The Drake is on our side now, right? Any chance he'll take out the nasty-looking King of the Abyss?

    Oh, right. I'm not used to full games where kingdom characters start that far north.

    Dorgas can move S or SE since both are ties for shortest distance. Players get to decide which. I'm assuming SE since he won't merge with the 3 loose soldiers that way, but it's your guys' call.

    Also, miscalculated the Princess movement. Shortest path was around the right of Zyne. She should have moved 1 NW for free, 1 N for 5 supply, collected 1 supply, then moved 1 N into the mountains for 6 supply and is now at 0 supply.

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    Mountains cost +2 though

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Doh! Corrected

  • NotoriusBENNotoriusBEN Registered User regular

    yea, it would have costed the princess 7supply to go to the mountains. she's in her current spot with 7 supplies I think (free move, move, gather 1, gather 1)


    Also, we need to take stock of our supply and soldiers.
    We were expecting a fight with the dragon, but that didn't happen so now we are stuck on the wrong side of the mountains with full compliments of troops and zero supply.
    We are ground to a halt atm with only @cj iwakura able to give us any meaningful amounts of supplies.

    I know we have 9 turns to get to the capital, but we don't want to be bogged down in the dragon mountains.
    and even though the Black Drake is an ally now, we'd have to spend supplies to use him, so that's another factor we gotta worry about.

    What's the princess' current movement forecast?

    also, who's turn is it because if its me again, I'm stuck.

    Yup, @notoriusBEN turn.

    Princess route is calculated from her starting position that turn. She takes the shortest, unblocked (by friendly heroes) route to the capital, with ties broken by whichever route is cheapest, with THOSE ties broken by player decision.

  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    I'm unable to predict princess's movement, but can convince her to return to road if we still wish to channel her west

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Last turn, the shortest route (straight-ish line) was blocked by Zyne and Godfried. The next shortest route was going around the right side of Zyne (going left around Godfried was one space longer) and that was unblocked so she went that way. If she were to move right now, it would be North 2 spaces, then NW all the way to below the Emperor.

  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    So, correct me if I'm wrong. If we move Princess to road and guys stay in mountains, we may choose for her to move W, NW, then attack soldiers. And if Godfried smashes the Priest, we will be in a good shape.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    Also need a decision if you want Dorgas to move S or SE

  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    SE, I guess? We do not confront him yet.

  • NotoriusBENNotoriusBEN Registered User regular
    Ok then, Zyne and I are stuck in the mountains.

    I have a plan, but i dont have the time to propose.

    Start thinking about letting the princess smite the Devil prince of the abyss

    Just as a note, the Drake isn't a character on his own anymore. As my Ally, I just get his power. There's nothing to move or anything, he's off the board.

    Given her resource count, the princess is only able to take 1 move this turn. Move into mountains (any move she'd make would be mountains) will cost her 7, then she'll collect 1, but that's not enough to move again.

    Otherwise, if we need to funnel her West, we're going to need to be sending a bunch of resources (and a soldier with them) to get everyone in position.

  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    Hm... question - if someone has full army and I want to send resources to him, I have to send some soldiers with them and they are just lost?

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    yes

  • AustinP0027AustinP0027 Registered User regular
    Yeah, send 1 soldier per 10 resource tokens. Soldier gets lost if the person is already full up.

  • PhyphorPhyphor Building Planet Busters Tasting FruitRegistered User regular
    You can for example send soldiers to cj and then move and they can send them back with supplies

  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    So, if I provide 10 resources to princess and move her to road, she will be able to reach enemy soldiers near the temple

  • AustinP0027AustinP0027 Registered User regular
    Numbers-wise that adds up yes, she'd be able to reach them (5 for grassland, 5 for grassland, 4 to reach soldiers for a total of 14 of her 17). Pathing I'm still not 100% on, but I believe she'd head that way.

    All depends on the "move her to the road" part as at this point, she won't move back to the road on her own unless all other paths are blocked, I believe.

  • NotoriusBENNotoriusBEN Registered User regular
    At least we dont need to worry about Gato for a while. Just have him Hulk out and kill the Moon Priest and the chancellor on the left side.

    I cant figure out the specifics, but I dont need to move yet, though I need to send away troops and get resources to move next turn to keep near enough the princess to heal her if needed.

    Going against the Abyss Prince would cut out a bunch of troops we have now, and make us lean enough to push through this area. And it helps us because 1 less enemy in the Emperor's favor.

    Is the black drake everyone's use, or just Zyne's.
    If its everyone's we need to get Zyne in a city for logistics duty.
    If its just his, he is going to be the hammer of our marching.

    Our problem right now is we are split and unable to reinforce either side atm, or being able to funnel many resources into one character.
