M1 "Seymour" attempts to tame creature (El Tigre, I assume) with meat. If succeeds, mount creature and ride NW, NW, fill bag with meat.

    Crap. I believe we have to meet Xino's deadline by the end of this turn and I think we're short 1 gem. We've sold 6 of the 10 required to him. M8 is holding 2 and M3 is holding 1. We need to get those 3 gems sold and we'll need to find and sell another gem as well.

    With that in mind:
    M4 "Pod" will go SE, Order M9 to (Dig for gems X3, and place any gems found in Pod's bag), return NW, and buy heavy armors with all available gems*. (*All available gems should be able to include the two gems M8 is holding if theColonel misses this turn as well. In the last order he gave, theColonel said the M8 would give the change from his purchases to another Marbit in the Hex.)

    LTDave, is purchasing a free action if we don't equip the items used?

    And why did we only have 13 combat in the battle?

    4 of those 5 Marbit were wielding shovels and the other was wielding a sword and a knife. Shouldn't our combat have been: 10(5*2(base marbit combat))+4(4*1(shovels))+3(sword)+{1(knife) [Can we use more than 1 weapon in combat?]}=17{18}?

    You're right about the shovels - the Marbits did 12 hits, rather than 11, so no real difference. You came within 3 hits of cwoaking a Gobwin.

    Knives don't add to combat - they are just tools.

    M3 'tech two' Orders
    [b]Equip as many items as possible from fallen marbits in one action, Try to extract meat, bones or other materials from fallen marbits, Move NW, Rest


    Also I'm not starving right? Oh and the idea with the first action was I could equip a lot with one action, but I would drop the excess. Thus saving the items from depopping. I would prefer to keep my shovel.
    "Hey guys equipment in the hex to the south east!"

    Knives don't add to combat - they are just tools.

    So there's no real point to having a knife now ? Since you can make any tool with any other tool and at least shovels and axes provide plusses to combat ?

    how about only knives work leather ?...as a suggestion to make them 'essential' again

    BTW LTDave if the first clarification is due to me taking M7 can I say in my defence that 2 posts prior to me jumping in and taking him you had posted

    No - it still takes an action whether you equip or not.

    Knives only cost 1/2 wood, so that's a bonus. But I might add in the leather work thing to give them an extra bonus.

    Yes, that's fine. It's what sparked the notice of problem in my mind. A Player had already issued orders to that NPC, and then you took over and changedt hsoe orders. I didn't want that to happen again.

    FereWolves are Combat 6, Defence 2, Hits 8, Move 6.

    Rules (such as they are)
    Spoiler: show
    Marbit Island is a play-by-post game run by me. Each player will be a Marbit, looking to survive and succeed.
    Move is the most important stat. It determines the number of actions you can take in a turn - move into other hexes, gather food, cut trees, build, etc.
    Post your orders on the forum. For this game, orders will be resolved in the order in which they were posted - no editing of your posts, please!
    This gives an advantage to early posters to grab equipment and resources, but allows later posters to know what has happened before they give their orders - so later posters can eat the food others harvest, or use tools they create.
    Marbits like to eat. At least once per turn. Marbits do not eat automatically, but must be given an order to eat.
    If a Marbit is unable to eat, he will become hungry, and will be marked with a black dot. A hungry Marbit that does not eat will cwoak.
    Marbits may hold up to two items in their hands. It takes an action to equip one or more items. Excess items are dropped in the hex.
    If the weather turns bad, Marbits will need to take shelter in a hut. A hut can shelter up to six Marbits.
    Combat is a dangerous game. Combat plus d6 per fighter divided by enemy defence is hits inflicted. Hits are distributed equally across the stack before any one unit is cwoaked. Defence is calculated by the first 8 units' defence averaged across the whole stack, rounded down to one decimal (so 1 unit with 3 defence has defence of 3, but a stack of 20 units with 3 defence have a defence value of 1.2).
    Marbits who do not submit orders within the allotted time will default to eating once, and then singing lewd lyrics drafted into popular musicals.
    NPC Marbits may be given orders by Player Marbits. It takes one action to give a set of orders to one NPC. The first player to issue orders to an NPC controls it for that turn (no befriending).
    Marbits may "scout" a neighbouring hex for 2 move - essentially, they stick their head over the border, have a look, and then return. At the beginning of the next turn, the scouted hex will be revealed on the map.
    It costs 2 move to enter a neighbouring hex, unless the border is marked with a brown line, representing a road. It costs 1 move to enter a hex with along a road.
    All the necessary information should be displayed on the map, above. Any questions? Just ask.

    I think we may have mined out the rock pile in the SE hex. Or there is a limit on how many gems an individual or NPC Marbit can mine (Limit may be total or out of a single rock pile).

    This should be the last turn to make Xino's deadline. We're at 8/10 with only 1 gem unspent. We need to spend M3's gem, find another gem, and sell that one too.

    Where is the other heavy armour Pod purchased? I was expecting it to appear on the ground. Is Xino holding it for another Marbit? Is dropping held items a free action?

    I am going to assume dropping is free and order the NPCs to do as many dig actions as I can(6) while dropping their gems. Someone else will have to grab any gems found by them and return with them to purchase something.

    KF25, M2 is the Marbit best positioned to grab any gems found by NPCs in the hex that is 2 SE and return home with them. Could you please do that? You'll have to drop one of your swords to do it.

    M4 "Pod" will Eat, Order M15 to (Go SE, go SE, Equip shovel and knife, and dig for gems{drop any gems found on ground}),Order M16 to (Go SE, go SE, Equip shovel, and dig for gems{drop any gems found on ground}), and Order M12 to (Order M11 to (go se, equip shovel and axe, dig for gems{drop any gems found on ground}, and Order M9 to (Eat from butterbear, go SE, dig for gems{drop any gems found on ground}, and dig for gems{drop any gems found on ground})), go SE, Equip Shovel, and dig for gems{drop any gems found on ground})

    Nested NPC Orders. What have I done?

    M3 'tech two orders'
    Eat, drop that cursed gem, and head SE*2. If he still has an action he will gather a berry.

    Finally, if anyone wants something instead of dropping the gem he will spend it in X1's shop for whatever that person wants.
