No probs 🙂

Q1. Check out page 36 and page 77 where damage is explained. D just stands for ‘Damage Range’ and is how Three Plains’ deals with multiple wounds.

Now, all attacks are presumed to do 1 damage, but some have a damage range, such as an attack with a Great Hammer for instance, which adds +1D, giving most models a damage range of 1 to 2.

So, let’s say you have a guy with a Toughness 3. To wound him, you will need to roll over his toughness save, rolling a 4, 5 & 6 on a D6. But if the attacking model has a damage range of 1 to 2, he could do up to 2 wounds or Live Points in damage instead. This is worked out by every point the attacking model can roll over the target’s save. So the score of a 4 would do 1 LP of damage , the score of a 5 would do 2 LPs and a 6 would max out the damage rating, which is still 2 LPs of damage, as it cannot go any further over its range of 2.

Q2. Check out pages 29 to 30. However, I have made a mistake in Diagram 15 Example C, where it should say Second Round of Combat. Thanks for making me notice that.

Otherwise you are right. Btw, if there are any little gaps where models should hit each other in combat, those models should hit each other. Perhaps I should add a little note in there….

Q3. 12 is the answer there, and I bet you might be looking at the Grand Riders. If a model is wearing +2 armour, always take away -1 movement. For instance, the Orc Saws have a movement of 7, but they wear +2 armour, so really they go 6 inches instead. However, as you have noticed, sometimes I add a little note in to a model’s stats, to make it easier for the player.

Q4. Gosh… There’s a lot here…

A High Moon is roughly 6 months

Does Many have seasons: Yes

Is Many an Earth=like day/night sequence: Yes, but a little bigger than Earth

What does the sky look like: It would really depend where you are… This world is awash with magic. For instance, the lands of the Vampire clans are called Evernight. A place of eternal murk, darkness and strange mists that block out the sun.

Is Many part of a binary system, etc: Yes. Many itself has one Moon and Ring. Many’s moon is usually referred to as Master of the Silver Ring and one day in its cycle it bobs just above its ring and this day is called the High Moon, and has become marker for a period of time for the mortals of Many.

Many is the seed of creation, and has the only life found in the universe. However, it is surrounded by other planets, has two Suns and sits in a vast galaxy surround by other galaxies.

The Creator loves watching creation and intelligent life, but he knows he is playing with fire, as if it gets out of hand, one day it could replace him… So he keeps life limited to just one planet.

I could go on… but I have to go and do some work now 🙁

I really look forward to seeing your pics of the game when they are ready.

If you have any more questions, just let me know.
