List Queries / Re: Warring states Chinese Allies
« on: June 10, 2024, 06:15:29 AM »
May one designate an Internal ally to be a force from an allied state (for example a Wei army with a Zhao internal ally) ?

Given that other than the Qin having their own list there are no real state dependent options in the Warring States list this works if you want to see your army as an alliance.

Some further research could identify some differences that the current lists miss I guess.

You've been trawling through battles recently so will know better than I  ;D

I'm not so convinced. Alliances at the strategic level were common, however, I am less sure that these resulted in actual battlefield cooperation - so you might get 2 states invading a third, but their armies would act independently.

Qin may be different in that they incorporated defeated enemies into their army - but may that just be slightly different troops to native Qin ones?

That said, my real interest with China starts with the Han so I may well be barking up the wrong tree here.

The +2 is used if you have a Legendary General ("LG"), otherwise you use +1.

Hope that helps.

OK on the number of koursores, however, the upgraded line cavalry of TUG 7 should be Drilled not Formed.

The rules on downgrading quality and/or shooting skill are in the list PDFs so it is quite appropriate for this to be here  ;D

Player Discussion / The MeG Podcast Season 4, Episode 7 - Terrain
« on: May 31, 2024, 01:44:48 PM »
The MeG Podcast team with a special guest discuss terrain, how it works in MeG and how we represent it on the table.

The usual team of Richard Jeffrey-Cook, Matt Haywood and Nik Gaukroger were joined by Paul Stovell to have a wide ranging conversation about terrain in MeG.

The episode can be found at - https://themegpodcast.podbean.com/e/the-meg-podcast-series-4-episode-7-terrain/

Hopefully this discussion is informative and gets players thinking about how terrain works and is used in MeG, as well as how we represent it on the table.

As always, feedback and suggestions for further podcasts are very welcome

Any more discerning players joining us?

Short answer no - but there is an item in the PDF Errata topic that needs to be tweaked about this so thanks for the reminder  8)

Per QRS - "vs, non-charging Cv, Cm, or Ch who shot" (my emphasis).

If the Cv/Cm/Ch are not charging - i.e. have not declared a charge - then the +1 claim applies if they shoot.

Point 6 in the appendix description just says when they can shoot, it does not cover combat claims.
