Mustering Norse

Postby Nurgle » Sun Sep 08, 2013 3:00 pm

Two quick questions:

1. Yfirthurs:

Troll Champions gain +1 Attack Dice (Two Cleavers). What does (Two Cleavers) mean? He only gets +1 AD only if he has two cleavers or he is equipped with two cleavers even if the rest of the unit has theirs replaced with two-handed cleavers?

2. How does the Vísi gets to 53 C+A? Looks like the Armour was added to the Might instead of Constitution.

Too bad, but it seems that rules questions have to be asked in the Kickstarters Comments to be answered. :cry:

The +1 attack dice only applies to the dice he gets for his Two Cleavers attacks. The clarification just specifies which attack gets the boost. As a follow-on, the muster rules specify that a unit must all be equipped the same. It's probably an oversight if it's supposed to apply to his other weapon options as well. The C+A math issue was also probably just an oversight.

So you're saying that the Troll Champion only gains the extra dice when he's wielding two cleavers. That's how I would read it in the rules too.

Only that would make champions in units equipped with two-handed cleavers obsolete, which would be a poor gamedesign choice in my eyes.

My guess would be that the extra dice is preserved if you buy a weapon or upgrade that has Replace (Two Cleavers). It may not be written that way, but I'd imaging that's the intent.

1. Troll Champs are going to get that +1 to the attack simply on the merits of being a Troll Champion. The Champion STARTS with two cleavers, but can be upgraded to having a two handed cleaver. So:

A Troll Champion with 2 Cleavers gets 6 Attacks.

A Troll Champion with a Two Handed Cleaver gets 5 Attacks.

2. I think you're right that it's a typo. The Visi with Heavy Armor should have a C+A of 44.

My question would actually be whether or not additonal armor pieces get added to the standard armor C+A. In the Visi instance, would the C+A for a shield bearing Visi with light armor be 46 (Light Armor C+A of 36 + Additional Shield Armor of 10 = 44) or would it simply be 38? That's a little sticky to me, as the "additional" work implies to me it would add together. Maybe the intent is that the shield actually only grants a +2 to the A value, but also grants the additional parry dice?

Having done a bunch of math on the profiles, it appears that all of a warriors armor values stack: natural, armour, and shield. There are typos throughout the draft/living profiles, but that seems to be the general rule.
