Re: The Book of Gert Yorkes / Old Lace (VOTE for Final Editi

Since we're passed on time here and we should really ought to get Gert nailed down for Nico testing...

Quote:
ARSENIC AND OLD LACE
At the start of the game, if you control Old Lace and Gertrude Yorkes is her Companion, you may instead place Gert on Old Lace’s Army Card. Order Markers may still be placed and revealed on this card normally. As long as Gert is on Old Lace's Army Card, Old Lace has the class of Runaway in addition to the class listed on her card, and when Old Lace attacks, she may attack one additional time.

RUNAWAY MORALE
When rolling for initiative, if Gert is on the battlefield or on Old Lace's Army Card, you may add 1 to your roll for each Order Marker on the Army Card of a Runaway in your army.
Quote:
SPECIES = DINOSAUR

(no edits to Runaway's Companion or Swift Carry)

LEAP 12
Instead of her normal move, Old Lace may use Leap 12. Leap 12 has a move of 3. When counting spaces for Leap 12, ignore elevations. Old Lace may leap over water without stopping, leap over figures without becoming engaged, and leap over obstacles such as ruins. Old Lace may not leap more than 12 levels up or down in a single leap. If Old Lace is engaged when she starts her Leap 12 When using Leap, Old Lace will take any leaving engagement attacks.

Re: The Book of Gert Yorkes / Old Lace (VOTE for Final Editi

I will tag @japes to make sure he's still on board here.

Tomorrow I'll open up a new thread for Old Lace and get everything in order for art there.

That being said, I feel like I should bring this up. When it comes to the Runaways, I've had the following wording rule in place: the first time their name shows up in a power, it's spelled out in full (i.e. Gert Yorkes). In all following appearances in that power, I just use the first name. At least, I THOUGHT that's what I was doing.

That isn't the case for Molly's card (it uses Molly Hayes throughout), and is done incorrectly on Karolina's (it just uses Karolina for her first power, then does it correctly in the second, starting with Karolina Dean and then just Karolina thereafter). It's formatted right for Chase.

First of all... where the hell did I get that from? The example that came to mind is Sgt. Drake Alexander in Classic, but that isn't quite right (the first power uses Sgt. Drake Alexander, the second starts with this full name but then transitions to Drake, and the final power just uses Drake). Is this something we've ever done in C3G? I don't think so, taking a brief look at some of our other "just a regular first name/last name" units.

Secondly... should we be doing that? I think it's more elegant and saves space, but it's inconsistent with prior use. However we want to do it we should definitely keep it straight going forward, and possibly update the older Runaways when we get a chance.

For example, how should the first power look?

OPTION A (what I've been doing):

At the start of the game, if you control Old Lace and Gert Yorkes is her Companion, you may place Gert on Old Lace’s Army Card. Order Markers may still be revealed on this card normally. As long as Gert is on Old Lace's Army Card, Old Lace has the class of Runaway in addition to the class listed on her card, and when Old Lace attacks, she may attack one additional time.

OPTION B (what C3G has been doing):

At the start of the game, if you control Old Lace and Gert Yorkes is her Companion, you may place Gert Yorkes on Old Lace’s Army Card. Order Markers may still be revealed on this card normally. As long as Gert Yorkes is on Old Lace's Army Card, Old Lace has the class of Runaway in addition to the class listed on her card, and when Old Lace attacks, she may attack one additional time.

Re: The Book of Gert Yorkes / Old Lace (VOTE for Final Editi

We did it on Jason Voorhees for sure (I think at your suggestion, though ) No idea where you got it from.

Classic, as you point out, played it fast and loose with abbreviation.

I think the principle you've been operating under is perfectly logical and a good way to come up with cards that don't sound like they were written by robots. I really don't like cards like Buffy's that insist on "firstname lastname" every time the character is mentioned. It's just a weird burden to put on ourselves that we need to always go with the full name.

Going forward, I'd suggest updating Karolina's card to do it right, and putting off updating all the released firstname lastname cards (Molly Hayes included). I think it'd be nice if they were all Voorhees-style, but there are probably bigger fish to fry, update-wise.

Re: The Book of Gert Yorkes / Old Lace (VOTE for Final Editi

So, let me start off by saying every Runaways issue I've ever read is after her demise. That being said, I've always heard and read her referred to as Gertrude. Again not a particular area of expertise, but I can safely say I have probably spent more time in a comic shop than anyone on here. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, but I just felt I needed to say something because it's bothered me the whole thread and this is my "speak now or forever hold your peace" moment.

EDIT: Or is it "piece", as in piece of advice? I think you guys catch my meaning.

Re: The Book of Gert Yorkes (Final Editing Phase)

Okay, so, first of all, THE THREAD FOR OLD LACE IS UP.

I've updated the second post of both with the current wording, so we should be good to go.

A few other bits:

- @Ronin , I don't imagine you took any pictures of the "modification" process? We'll need a tutorial here, which I'll write, assuming it's as simple as it looks (Step 1: Take a knife and cut them apart at her hand. Step 2: Rebase.). If not, we can just use fret's picture of the two together and yours of the two apart and go from there.

- I've included preliminary text for Arsenic and Old Lace. If it fits, and we're comfortable with it, I have no problem with a card being put together for a "combined version" of the two. However, I'd want to make it very clear that it's not a "real" C3G card, due to the minute differences between the two as separate units and as a single combined one, the power text, and so on. Any ideas on how to do this other than just labeling the image?

- As for Gertrude vs. Gert - I went back and forth on this, originally went with her full name but switched to Gert. When her full name is spoken, it's always "GERTRUDE YORKES." But in casual conversation, the Runaways tend to call her Gert. I can honestly go either way, but because Gert is A) used more often and B) shorter, I decided in that direction. There's no "right answer" but it makes sense to me.

Re: The Book of Gert Yorkes (Final Editing Phase)

I didn't take any pictures. I don't remember that well anymore, but I don't believe Gert's hand is actually connected to Old Lace - there's actually some detailing on Gert's palm, and I don't see any evidence on my minis that I had to cut them apart. I think it's really just 'Rebase'.

I don't think we did that much to designate the Quickbelle card as a non-official card, though the differences were more minor there.

Not opinionated on Gertrude vs Gert.

Re: The Book of Gert Yorkes (Final Editing Phase)

Questions here...on the combined card, do they still get swift carry? Isn't Gert suppose to be riding Old Lace at this point and therefore she's already swiftly carrying someone...how swift can she be if she's carrying two Runaways...?

Re: The Book of Gert Yorkes (Final Editing Phase)

I believe when they were separate designs, it still allowed her to Carry someone with Gert on her card. So I don't see why not.

Re: The Book of Gert Yorkes (Final Editing Phase)

Yeah, she carries two people. Old Lace is pretty big, and it's only for a minute, while they hitch a ride. She's a tough old girl.

Re: The Book of Gert Yorkes (Final Editing Phase)

Should we go with Old Lace's size of M5 for the combined?
