I attack die and she rolls her whole defense or 1 as well?

If it is a leaving engagement attack, she rolls no defense at all.

It's not really an attack. If it helps, call it a "passing swipe."

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

No, there is no defense roll against leaving engagement attacks. A player rolls one die - if the result is a skull, the leaving figure takes a wound. That's it.

Please, please, please... read through the rulebook. The answer to everything you've asked is in there, and it's all written to be playable for ages 8 and up. I'm worried if you keep on like this people will start neg-repping you, if they haven't already.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

It really helps to call the roll-one-die-as-a-figure-disengages something other than an "attack". Passing Swipe or Disengagement Swipe, or Leaving Strike are all acceptable terms. It helps to avoid confusion because "attack" has a very specific meaning in Heroscape, and nothing that refers to "attack" ever applies to the Leaving Strike.

I like to think of it this way:
You are face to face with a dude with a sword in his hand and he just tried to hit you with it. If you are dumb enough to turn your back on him and walk away, he's going to take a swing at your back before you get too far away. He might hit you or he might not (50/50 in Heroscape), but nothing you do will affect whether he hits you or not - you aren't even looking at him any more, so you can't see what he's doing.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

Thanks Sherman. I did read it and had one verification question. I am only 7 and my dad helped me reply. If I ask any other questions that make you snicker just hit next. Thanks to everyone else that helped out on this.

One swiping attack to Sherman as he walks away.

Dang! I'll have to get you later. The largest problem here is terminology. New players need clear and concise terms so that confusion and ambiguity is kept to a minimum.

You guys tell me what i need to start doing and buying to kick things off right.

I should just build a master map and follow the missions to start? what if I buy more armies can I use those?

There is so much here on this site I feel lost where to start playing! Teach me my friends.

thanks in advance Billy

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

I'm sure it was. Just pointing out the confusing and contradictory posting habits he/they are displaying. I'm with Sherman on this, I wish the dad and son would read the rulebook together, along with the other great resources on the site, before asking questions like they have.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

I'm pretty sure bscox3 is an adult, and the 7-year-old comment was a sarcastic response to Sherman Davies pointing out that the rules were written for 8-year-olds.

I also agree with Sherman that perhaps bscox3 would have a better time of it if the rules had been read before playing and before posting basic questions.

Re: Question Dump: Post Your Questions Here.

Yes it was a joke. So in the future if I read and play and am not clear in my own thought process I will not submit my ignorance to the genius of the question dump!

There's no need for that kind of response. Your questions are still welcome here.
