Session 045


  1. Forgot my special rule for Solo Units
    • I forgot that I ruled long time ago that Solo units are not capped by War
      • Keep in mind that Solo Units is automatically considered to be in the worse formation against the opponent's formation
    • Because the Close Combat Rating and such from the opposition is already significant enough advantage
      • A Complementary Unit in Close Formation with Close Quarter attack rating of 3 will add 6 successes against the Solo Unit
  2. Mass Combat is Long Ticks
    • The moment they formed up and attacked Alabaster Hand of the Heaven it would have placed Alabaster in Long Tick time frame, which means each tick is now 1 minute as opposed to 1 second
    • It would have effectively removed him from any immediate interaction with those dragging Flawless Oak away
  3. What should have happened
    • Since Flawless Oak runs on land faster than they are Alabaster should have went into aiming mode or just waited till Flawless Oak is within range of them
    • On Flawless Oak's action tick, Alabaster should end Aiming/Waiting and act on the same tick by disarming the thief
    • Flawless Oak then can as his action try to grab the sword - would be a contest against other people trying to grab it
  4. Comparative Speeds
    • After formalizing their power, they would have been too fast in water for either Laoghaire or Alabaster to catch up
    • Swimming is Half your normal movement rate (The EVEs do not suffer this)
    • Swimming requires Dexterity + Athletics for short term (EVEs do not even need to roll)
    • Movement rate is (Dexterity - Wound Penalty - Mobility) in Yards per tick
      • Flawless Oak: 5 + 4 (Obsidian Sheath) = 9 (No penalty in water due to hearthstone)
      • Alabaster: 6 / 2 = 3
      • Laoghaire: 5 / 2 = 2.5 (Exalted Round up) = 3
      • EVEs: 6 + 2 (They add Strength to Swimming Speed) = 8 (No penalty in water due to species)
    • Dash Rate is (Dexterity + 6 - Wound Penalty - Mobility ) in Yards per tick
      • Flawless Oak: 5 + 6 (for Dash) + 8 (Obsidian Sheath) = 19 (No penalty in water due to hearthstone)
      • Alabaster: (6 + 6) / 2 = 6
      • Laoghaire: (5 + 6) / 2 = 5.5 (Exalted Round up) = 6
      • EVEs: 6 + 6 + 4 (They add Double Strength to Dash Swim) = 16 (No penalty in water due to species)
    • So once Flawless Oak have Mecca in hand, and assuming he escapes the envelopment, he can escape the Entanger's thrown rage (assuming he wasn't head before that) in 10 ticks - roughly 2 actions. But this means he will be leaving Alabaster and Laoghaire behind, who can never outrun the EVEs.
      • Though if they may be able to escape the envelopment if they can ride away on the Hippocampus whose movement 20 for Dash Swim

  • Trying to find Alabaster Eye of the Heaven's origins in Chiaroscaro
  • The Cleansing of the South
    • Word have been sent to Flawless Oak and Alabaster that the Golden Custodian of South and West is on his way to back to the South.
      • (He already arrived in Session 40)
      • The message mentioned a cleansing of the South
      • While I have no plans for you guys to get involved, Flawless Oak might interceed since Zombie Infection is one of his major personal issues. Alabaster doesn't care a bit about Mecca so it is not like he will insist on leaving people in need to pursuit an artifact.
    • Dagnir will leave soon; Leading the Astartes to track down and end the Death Cult, whom he suspects is the cause of the plague
      • He will issue a call to arms to all Solars of the South, thus Horakinis, Andraste, Klytaimnēstra, and Circle of Everlasting and Perfect Illuminated Harmony will join him. Alabaster Hand of the Heaven and Flawless Oak's mission is more important so they are excluded.
      • As per Samea's instructions, any community that are found to be "contaminated" are to be eradicated, the people are to be held for redoctrination. Those who are deemed too far gone are to be purified by fire.
      • Samea is too busy with the Amalgam program in the East
      • Panther arrived to everyone's surprise and tempered this ruthless business with Compassion and Temperance
        • Dace is going to be commander of the south in his absence
        • Arianna is working on a secret project for the Bull of the North (WMD Research)
        • Swan is busy working alongside Maximillian hoping to achieve diplomatic victory for the conquest of hundred kingdoms.
        • Harmonious Jade has already infiltrated the City of Thorns and is investigating its power structure seeking weaknesses. Unfortunately she will soon realize Mask of Winter's organization is all but impenetrable and cannot be toppled from below. She needs to decapitate the snake.
        • Many communities were saved by Panther's glorious words and avoided the ashen fate that would have awaited them.
        • The Imperial Fist were so moved that they asked Panther their patron Solar, and Panther accepted the honor
  • The Kind Hearted Prince
    • With the North, West, and South facing food shortages the Silver Prince of the Skullstone Kingdom started sending fleets laden with grains (grown in the Underworld) all over the world. Free to those too poor to afford it, and at cost for those who can pay for it.
      • What the world does not yet know is that any non-enlightend being1 who partakes food or drink from the Underworld will arise as Ghost when they die, instead of going to the renew cycle of luthe.
    • North
      • Northern communities would never turn away free food that is safe and without strings, so Silver Prince encountered fertile ground for his propaganda.
      • Whitewall being ruled by the Syndices does not allow anything from the Undead entering its walls, that includes food.
      • The Bull of the North does not allow his troops and their families from partaking the food. Others can choose it of their own volition.
    • East
      • The Guild have signed contract for enormous sums of food to be sold to the hungry communities
      • Lookshy always being independent refuses all outside interferrence
      • Rathess is too remote, plus Silver Prince knows better to tinker with the City of the Sun
      • Hundred Kingdoms are too far inland, even thought connected by the Great River. Ravaged by War, they gladly purchase the food transported by the Guild at a discount.
    • South
      • The An-Tang Provences pay lip service to the Realm Generals about not accepting Skullstone Trade, while "independent" merchants take entire convoy loads and sell them on the "black market". The prolific nature of these impromptu organizations are a matter of frequent request for help to the Realm Forces in An-Tang
      • Linthas make it their business sinking every convey they can threaten, on order of their Demonic Mistress. Though they have no idea why, nor do they care.
      • Lap have no shortage of food being the grain center of the South. They barred Skulstone grain ship from docking in their docks
      • Paragon does not trust Skullstone and thus does not allow his own people from taking the food.
      • The Hijra is desperate enough to take anything. Earning the Silver Prince near Saint status in their eyes.
      • The Golden Custodian of South and West on the guarentee of Captain Moray Darktide opened his lands to the Trade Ships - Subjected to Azulas' approval, which she granted, being no stranger to profitable dealings with unconventional partners.
    • West
      • The various nations of the West are not hard hit by the Food Shortage. They never had much of an surplus and did not have the habit of selling things they need thinking next harvest will more than make up for it.
      • Though most independent islands gladly takes the free food
      • On the other hand Ocean Pearl with no proof but an adamant faith that the Prince is up to no good is sinking as many ship as she can find - preventing the food from reaching the hungry or the most vulnerable (depending on who you ask).
    • Blessed Realm
      • The Blessed Realm and the Immaculate Order consider Skullstone Archipelago an abomination, a cancer that is too troublesome to remove with the current turmoil - but has full intention of doing so when oppurturnity arises.
      • Thus the Skullstone trade ships are blocked and passage through Realm Waters denied
      • Those that force the issue are sunk without mercy
        • This is a fact that Silver Prince's agent masterfully spins in the various Ports of the world to further discord: "The Realm sunk food for the refugees!" "xxxx village all starved to death before the food from the good prince was taken by captain xxx." etc.
        • Unfortunately the Realm is too absorbed with its own internal politics to care about these slander. Even if these people revolt the Realm need only send in the Legions and they will fall back to place. Who is on the Scarlet Throne is more important at this moment.
