Dumb questions

Postby jdesmond » Sat Mar 11, 2017 5:14 am

Salutations, gentlefolk !

A few questions (or nits to pick), from the Nov 3 2016 edition:

In section 34, "Breaking Off Close Combat",

In 34:3 "A stand which breaks off is restricted in how it may move"; 34:3:b "It may only move directly to its rear", and 34:3:c "it may not change its facing". This seems to be the only way, in the rules, for a stand to voluntarily 'move backwards'. Correct ?

So, if an enemy stand attacks your stand in Close Combat, you can back away keeping face to enemy, but if it moves up to one millimeter away and shoots, your stand can only move away by giving the enemy a shot at your dubka. Correct ?

In article 34.3.f; "a stand which breaks off ... may not end in contact with an enemy stand or camp".
Should this be read as:
"contact with an enemy stand or _enemy_ camp" or "contact with an enemy stand or _any_ camp"


Article 42: 'Conforming' - sections 42:1 and 42:2
Section 42:1 says "must...if", with no indication of any exceptions.
Section 42:2 says "must...if any of these conditions apply"

Either 42:2 is redundant, or 42:1 is missing some exceptions or qualfications. Correct ?


67:3 'Pass Through' seems to contradict 33:3 'Passing Through Friendly Stands'. Correct ?

Regardless, thanks for your work, and best wishes for success. Hope to have army ready for the Cold Wars tourney

Yours, John Desmond

Salutations, again, gentlefolk !

Methinks I posted on the wrong board, and asked questions answered elsewhere. Apologies.

Had purchased and printedout the _Triumph_ rulebook, was going thru it, making an epitome "Triumph for DBA 2.2 players" (anyone interested - will email copy), noting points of confusion.

Mayhaps update or erotica sheet available at Cold Wars ?

Anyway, hope to be in action with you again.

Yrs, John

Hey John,

Sorry about not getting to your questions earlier; we've been stinky busy with Triumph stuff this last week. Were any of your questions unanswered by other posts elsewhere?

Big update coming. No erotica sheet, though -- that sounds more than a little disturbing.

MY Miniatures do Minoan priestesses in 15mm, which may be of interest to anyone thinking of doing an erotica sheet. :lol:

Do I get the feeling that autotext sometimes picks a word that is not the one wanted?

Hi John,

I would be interested in seeing your "Triumph for DBA 2.2 players" summary! As you probably know, we (the WGC guys) are all long time DBA 2.2 players and we loved that game and it had a big impact on our thinking for TRIUMPH!. If we see you at Cold Wars, would love to talk to you about it. Or we can just communicate on here.

Scanned thru the whole 'rules questions' sections. If weren't trying to get things together for Cold Wars, would have done copypasta of answers to my questions (think most queries covered), but will probably just wait for next ed.

'Erotica sheet' was common phrase amongst us 'SPI grognards' back in the '70's. Used it deliberately :twisted:

The Maiden Guards of Outpost's Khmer line are quite attractive 8-) .

Hope everyone going to Cold Wars has good and safe trip (Latest weather report has blizzard forecast tomorrow (Tuesday) for Eastern Pennsylvania, foot or more of snow)

Sent David my eddress, so he can send me his and I can send Epitome as PDF attachment. You can do the same.

Yours, John
