Passing Shot Response
« on: June 16, 2020, 03:35:15 PM »
Some of the flyers have the Passing Shot characteristic, which is cool. I wonder whether there should be some possibility of a response to this, similar to Charge responses. This is what I imagine:

Return Shot (Or some cool name)
UGs within range of an enemy making a passing shot may make a return shot by spending a card to do so. The specific rules are:
  • Must not have moved or shot this turn.
  • Path of the enemy movement must pass in front of a line that extends the REAR of the shooting UG. (Since enemy is above, UGs may shoot to flanks and front but not to the rear.)
  • All shots are greater than 1BW. Javelins may only return shoot if the enemy flies directly over the unit.
  • Shooting at flying skirmisher is Downgraded one step.
  • UGs that return shoot are considered to have used their movement for the phase.
  • The card cost is Skirmisher (white), Drilled (green), Formed (yellow), Tribal (yellow)

A nice idea.  I will definitely add that as we develop.
