    Foot
    0 -> light injury -> heavy injury knocked down

    @38thDoe as only one not knocked down

    Keep in mind you're almost guaranteed to be the target next monster turn.

    The way I see it, assuming you’re out of range to hit it (because otherwise you definitely want to hit it) you have 2 options, (a) move in as close as possible, or (b) hover 6 squares north of the lion.

    If the lion draws claw, then (a) you get clawed all three of us can retaliate, (b) nobody gets clawed, all three of us can retaliate.

    If the lion draws roar, no difference in attack, someone is getting got, just (a) two of us can retaliate, (b) only I’m in range to hit back.

    If the lion draws grab, a or b, I’m likely fucked and the bugger is running away.

    Take your choice.

    By the way, I’m trying to balance the kind of tactical discussion I think this game needs with avoiding being an annoying quarterback. Please let me know if I swing too far either way.

    Isn't roar out of the deck now?
    I appreciate your level of tactics here because I'd like us to win and I'm having trouble learning the system here for some reason.

    Sorry, size up, which is another roar type attack but only against one of us.

    I am out of range right? So seems like getting close is the best move?

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    You are out of range, yes. You are the only one to still have their rock though.

  • 38thDoe38thDoe lets never be stupid again wait lets always be stupid foreverRegistered User regular
    Seems like I could maximize damage if I can melee it with the rock.

    Your call. I could see an argument for either way.

    I guess I move five south and hope for the best.

    Actually, I messed up. The Enraged mood should have gone away when Davin died. The lion loses the +1 damage.

    Vance only has heavy injury on the legs.

    The white lion isolates its prey. Full move away from all threats.

    Place target knocked down in front of monster. Target suffers 1 damage per monster level.

    We should get to choose which of the two squares in front of the lion that I’m dropped in. So I’ll choose the North one, and use my move to circle behind him.

    Feels like there is some strategy we are missing other than chase him around until he one shots us but I don't see it.
    I will go 4 west.

    I gather there's a lot more strategy once you unlock the other survival actions and start getting gear.

    One strategy I can think of is timing rock critical hits when you think there's a decent chance that one of the stronger AI cards will be discarded. Terrifying Roar seems like the deadliest right now. I guess what I would do is hold off when I know it's not in the deck. After that, it's a press your luck judgement call watching other cards be drawn, knowing that each not-Roar card increases the odds the next one will be but not waiting too long or else it will be played and you'll have to wait until the next reshuffle.

    There's also keeping in mind of that trap card for hit location ruining your crit, so being cautious if a bunch of hit locations have been drawn but the trap hasn't come out yet.

    (although you all have enough insanity right now that brain damage isn't a big deal, but being forced to run away from roar is also a bad thing)

    It's always best to let people who can hit the lion try first as reactions might change its position. For example if me hitting it causes it to turn and charge forward then you can possibly get it.

    I'll move 1E, 1S and make a feeble attempt to bite it. Ol' Vance is looking like a write off so might as well have a try.
