Alright, and the roll is 1 2

You have Defiance -- you get to reroll the 1. It becomes a 5

You kill both larvae and get 2 courage



That makes it the Enemy Phase. The Despair Track advances to the 3. We add a despair die, and four courage in the Courage Pool, and advance the Lord Track to the 3

The invasion token in area 2 advances onto the four of you. It rolls 1 1 1 1 2 1 1 1 1

That's four grylluses and four larvae

There is no Ambush here

That means that Bernice must choose a Captain. You can choose yourself

Those monster rolls seemed great. I'll spend a luck to activate Brevet rank, for a recruit by all non-JD characters!

Only 1 Gang left, right? I think I'd rather take that and a pool courage over a Gendarmes.

I'll also hand out 1 courage each to Amelia and Cissy.

Due to my Unsophisticated nature, in order for me to get a 3 cost Gendarme the team captain would have to approve the use of a pool courage, to buff my recruit roll of 2. The captain frankly isn't interested in that!

Oh I see

We're almost done, then -- however, Cissy is wounded and it takes courage to heal her

Cissy will not spend courage to self-heal, and so we should be good to go.

Dorothy did pick up that last gang! Then she'll attack, I don't think I'm interested in any help.

You can plant the gang you took. And then that makes it Cissy Salem's turn

Sure, Cissy could also plant gangs, I'm down with leaving my gang behind!

Guys, I'm afraid Cissy is dropping out of the game

PA actually handles this with no problem -- the Despair Track simply slows down. At the same time, I would understand if everybody else wanted to end/start over/give up/etc.

If we're pressing on, then the Despair Track will just move 4 per Enemy Phase instead of 5, Scylla loses some health, and then, it's sea's go



Oh I just realized, another option would be if someone would take over Cissy's spot. Probably not that fun for someone? Actually in this game, a fifth person could just start another character. You get courage equal to the despair dice (9) to help you catch up

I'm willing to play on if everyone else is still into it, but the pace of the game has sort of made it difficult to get absorbed. I find that I've completely forgotten what is even going on every time my turn comes around again, and re-evaluating the board state and character/monster abilities from scratch every time gets old.

They can be great, but everyone has to be super into it and willing to check the thread and post multiple times a day. I ran some board games on GG way back when (here's Mage Knight) and it worked wonderfully, but the players were all insanely committed. Almost 2000 posts total in the space of a little over a month.

I enjoyed your Root game too! I was a little ambivalent about the game itself, but the energy when we were playing and people were into it felt great.
