Huh? I'm targeting the torso... I like your leg exactly how it is...

We're splitting torso into chest (-0) and abdomen (-1) per Low-Tech :)

My normal dodge of 9 being +1 for one foe is 10...
side penalty -2 reduces that to 8...

I can't remember exact details but I think there was at least another -1 to that from FP loss so ... 7?

That's pretty low so I'd like to use some EE if I can. You said you had 3/10 AP... previously you agreed w/ my " I'm at 6/12 you're at 5/10 .." and you spend 2 (1 to turn, 1 to kick)

So I think if I spent 3 AP (reducing 6/12 to 3/12) my Feverish Dodge would be vs 9?

That's what I'll put in the roll log to see if it works, though feel free to correct me if I'm wrong ...

and I got an 11 so again I wasted AP on Feverish Defence... really gotta stop doing that and just take your hits!

Go ahead and roll damage for your kick

3 damage. Are you going to roll with the blow or just take it?


1 AP for the dodge, 2 for the feverish defense. We're both at 3 AP... except for the damage you're about to take.

I clicked 3d6 to roll with the blow, it was a 12 so it fails so I suffer the full damage (not sure if that means you still double knockback or not)

using RWB lowered my AP from 3 to 2..

Does that take me from 6/12 HP down to 3/12 HP?

Now HT roll to mitigate AP loss... got a 10... normally with HT 12 that woudl be MoS 2 but since effective HT is 10 due to FP loss it's MoS 1...

which lessens the AP loss from suffering 3 shock from -3 AP to -2 AP... which brings me to 0

So basically the HT MoS seems to have avoided the weird situation of what to do if AP loss goes negative, like if that's a forced FP burn or something.

I'll be taking AOD:double (-3 DX from shock would make attacking a bad idea even if I had the AP to spare) and using my step to back away from you, your turn again.

Do the under 1/3rd HP penalties kick in now?

B419 my dodge/move is halved (rounded up) yup. That's something I'd love to eventually come up with a %-based leveling-off like what Cole did with FP penalties, but since I didn't ahead of time...

I guess I'll be relying on my parries more...

This does make me a bit confused in what order to apply fixed reductions (say -1 to dodge) vs % reductions, since that could affect the final in some cases.

Also: can my move even get lower at this point? *shrug* There are cases where I'd be okay going to fractional moves and taking multiple turns to move a single hex. Half-hex moves is something Decreased Time Rate might need to deal with anyway.

That'd be a fun addition. It'd be weird to see how it interacts with the lost FP, but I think it would make for a stronger wounding system. My favorite wounding system for gurps is lwcamp's semi-cumluative wounding system, but that's almost not gurps anymore. Its still really good.

My instinct says multipliers, then adds, but I can't say way. Maybe you do less math that way? Maybe its the old order of operations training? maybe percent decreases tend to be more permanent and mods more situational? I do have firmly fixed in my mind that you normally halve the dodge and then add in modifiers, like if a guy at half dodge makes a retreat.

Well, what red would really like to do is walk a ways off, take a breather, and then return to this fight with green still in bad shape.

That would definitely be easier for you if I were limited to moving 1 hex per 2 seconds rather than 1 hex per second, since to go faster than 1/second you need at least to initially spend some AP to accelerate even if it's 0 to maintain it.

If maintenance is free...


Red spends 1 AP to turn 180 degrees, and 1 AP to accelerate to move 2. That leaves 1 AP left, and moving at this modest pace won't burn any more, so he can safely stop when he feels like it.
