Re: Player's Thread

Serech is probably better either guarding the rear or protecting the magic-user - going to the front rank only if there is not another with heavy armor.

Re: Player's Thread

Here's an attempt at a marching order. Let me know what you guys think.

I expect Het to be up ahead scouting but he'll slip behind Oldtin and Gunther once the scrapping breaks out.

I also like Alkman and Archie in the second rank because they have spears and can hopefully assist in melee behind Oldtin and Gunther.

2x2
Het
Oldtin - Gunther
Alkman - Archie
Golgudir - Fredrik
Serech - Lawrence

Re: Player's Thread

I think the rules do suggest that three spearmen can fight abreast in a 10ft wide passage, but they're not explicit about spears fighting from a second rank (that's up to Mako :)).

Unless Mako says spears can attack from a second rank, I'd hold the soft mercs back; our A Game would, I think, be to position our top AC/hp persons in the front two ranks. The outright hardest guys should take front rank, with a handy second rank ready to relieve them after they get hit.

In the present company Lawrence, Serech, and Gunther(NPC) all have the best AC: 4 (mail+shield).
Oldtin and Fredrik also have AC 5 (mail).

Lawrence and Hetwhistle are the only figures who have more than 6 hp (so they can't be killed by the first normal hit). Fredrik also got a 6 hp and Serech 5 (nice!), so maybe second rankers? Golguldir has only 1 hp and will certainly be killed by any hit (foooool!).

Lawrence has a bow and Hetwhistle has a sling, which might also make them useful up front. On the otherhand, Oldtin is the only player who can "see equally well by day or night" so perhaps he'd make a good scout, or rearguard?

Re: Player's Thread

Oh, that's right. I didn't buy a shield for Fredrik. (And now, of course, I'm trying to remember why...)

But he can hold a torch in his off hand, so that will help.

Re: Player's Thread

Maybe in a rigid, disciplined, military formation, spears could stab from the second rank, but I don't think so in most ad hoc dungeon melees. I have no problem with characters throwing spears from the second rank, but of course they would not target those characters already in melee, but the group behind.

Re: Player's Thread

Looks "ideal" to me--assuming they come from the front!

So long as Lawrence and Oldtin are happy to have been swapped around?

Rear-guard sounds fine for Oldtin.

"Well of course i am fine with being up front. I am not a coward after all , but the legendary sir Lawrence. I was only thinking of the wee folk in our party. I did not wish them to miss a moment of the excitement by being further back"
