    Her att/def were the main problem. She had ~10 in both vs. 26 att / 29 def. Also she always trampled so didn't use any attack boni from her weapon, that made her hit chances like 1/300.

    PS: Also massive patch dropped by Illwinter. Finally Growth got nerfed. Quickness has M1 pre-req :)

    Is there any way to get the Great Mother to use weapons against folks smaller than herself? Does she fall off because it's hard to do?

    As far as I know she does use the weapon, it just doesn't look like much compared to the trampling.

    In Dom4 trample and weapon attacks were exclusive. Did that change with Dom5?

    No, they should still be exclusive. Size 6 Trample damage should only average ~1 damage with that setup of protection/temper flesh anyhow though, hitting or not.

    Speaking of trampling and that patch; notice how they lessened the price of enlarge and made it not awake only? Oh what could have been :negative:

    Trample is like an attack 10 and does armor negating damage, but not sure how much

    Manual: Trample is exactly what it sounds like – a large unit runs over a smaller one. Smush! A trampling unit displaces all of the units in the square it enters to an adjacent square. These units have to take a Defense – (fatigue / 10) check against 10. If they fail this check, they take 5 + 2xSize trample damage. This is an armor-piercing attack, so Protection is halved. A trampled unit will always take at least one point of damage, regardless of Protection. A unit which successfully passes the defense check is still displaced, but just takes one point of damage, total.

    Weird thing, I sent in my turn, and it sent the acknowledgement for that. But on the game page it still says it's waiting for my file. But when I got it to resend, it sent me the turn as I'd played it, with the commands issued and whatnot, so it definitely has my turn.
    Maybe postpone more?
    Also it won't stop resending me the file.:whatho:Anyway I'm off for work in 9 minutes for 8 hours. I guess a stall wouldn't really matter for me at this particular point.

    It's probabyl an issue with llama, the game should auto-extend when it's fixed, but you can put in an extension if you like :)

    Thought of the day: Do Oni stay dead to mindhunt or do their second form save them?

    I really wouldn't announce mind hunt on the forums. Now each of my guys is carrying an antimagic amulet.

    It was already wearing one though? Not like I'm not using penetration items, and Marverni going for midgame hunts to control thugs isn't exactly novel. More bummed about that other thug just about managing to eke out out of farstrike range =/
