Add a new rule, “Approaching Beasts”:-

If there is no active Approach post for a particular Beast, a Knight may Approach that Beast by posting a blog entry with the title “Approaching [beast]”, where “[beast]” is the name of the Beast. The blog entry may contain any content. Such a blog entry is known as an Approach post, and starts as active.

Tactics that can be used against Beasts are ATTACK, SCOUT, TAME and HIDE. If a comment on an active Approach post contains any of these words in capital letters, the Knight who made that comment is considered to be taking that Tactic against the Beast for this Approach; they can be referred to by a corresponding adjective such as “Attacking Knight” or “Taming Knight”. (If a Knight makes more than one such comment, only the most recent comment is considered.)

If a quorum of Knights have taken Tactics for an active Approach, the Baron may resolve that Approach as follows (with all adjectival references to Knights referring only to the Knights who took a Tactic on this Approach):-

  • If a majority of Knights who have taken a Tactic on the Approach are Attacking Knights, then the Beast is attacked: The Baron rolls DICE6 for each Weapon wielded by an Attacking Knight, then adds DICE4 for each Scouting Knight. If the total exceeds the Beast’s Fortitude, the Beast’s rule is repealed and each Attacking Knight and each Scouting Knight gains Gold equal to the Beast’s Fortitude; otherwise a randomly-selected Attacking Knight loses a random Weapon that they are Wielding (if they are Wielding any).
  • Otherwise, nothing happens.

When an Approach has been resolved, it ceases to be active.

In the rule “Beasts”, replace “Each Beast has a Motive and a Behaviour.” with:-

Each Beast has a Motive, a Behaviour and an amount of Fortitude.

To the rule “Dragon”, add:-

The Dragon’s Fortitude is 25.

imperial This seems over-complicated, I must say.

Perhaps - I was just trying to get things going, as it’s been a full week with no legal game actions available to players, let alone meaningful ones.

imperial I also think it seems too complicated
