Multi-action questions

Postby HenriHakl » Wed Jul 11, 2018 6:29 pm

The quick rules in Blessings Unheralded indicate that the same action may not be performed twice. But what exactly distinguishes an action? Some scenarios are listed below; more than one may be legal.

Scenario A (different targets):
1. First action is an "Interact Attack (deception)" on foe A
2. Second action is an "Interact Attack (deception)" on foe B

Scenario B (different skills):
1. First action is an "Interact Attack (deception)" on foe A
2. Second action is an "Interact Attack (athletics)" on foe A

Scenario C (different targets and skills)
1. First action is an "Interact Attack (deception)" on foe A
2. Second action is an "Interact Attack (athletics)" on foe B

Scenario C (different "attacks")
1. First action is an Interact "Attack" (deception)
2. Second action is a normal "attack"

Scenario E (different types of attack)
1. First action is a melee attack
2. Second action is a ranged attack

Scenario F (different actions that do a melee attack)
1. First action is a charge (melee) attack
2. Second action is a normal melee attack

Scenario G (different actions that are associated with different types of attack)
1. First action is an all-out (melee) attack
2. Second action is a called shot (ranged) attack

I, for one, am also interested in this.

My players tend to subconsciously powergame, so I could see at least one of them attempting one or more of the actions above. It'd be nice to know just what is allowed and what is pushing the system's boundaries a bit too far.

Disclaimer: I have not read any of the released material to date asside from the comics. I am very familiar with game systems which were influential in making W&G, however.

Scenario:

A: look for "Multi-targeting" rules as this is one action with many targets.

B: this is a multiaction, and should be allowed, though the question of "what do you hope to accomplish by making this harder" comes to mind

C: multiaction with Multi-targeting, again allowed with the expected question of "why?" though less so than B

D: same or different targets? Take answers from above depending. Should be allowed.

E: so my Whichblade and Shuriken Pistol? Or Gut a then throw that blade into b?

F: I believe "Charge" is a "full round action" or otherwise expressly unusable with a multiaction, though Multi-targeting should still be allowed.

G: All-Out Attack should take your full round and be unusable in a multiaction, though, again, Multi-targeting should be ok.

Hope this helps .
