Bad Bob scenario variant.
« on: April 18, 2015, 05:41:49 PM »
Ran with the Bad Bob scenario where Bob was a black under coated copplestone yeti and hence was Bad Black Bob. 

To add some more challenge ...
Bob started in the middle of the table and we identified each table corner as 1-4.   I rolled one white and one coloured D6 at end of each turn.  On a roll of 5-6 on the coloured die, Bob stood still.  On a 1-4 he moved towards that corner a number of inches equal to the white die.   He would detour around any figures.   

However he would move towards and enter a fight with any figure rash enough to close within 6in.

This might be a useful method for dropping random local grumpy fauna onto a table to add to a Companies woes?

Bob as written is also a bit too tough and I would his reduce his pluck a bit.   And I now made it only a partial win if you killed Bob.  You needed to chop a bit off him (head, ears, obscure bits favoured by arcane Chinese medicine, whatever) and exit the table with it as proof of success for your employer /to further medical science (said Dr Jekyl).

If some one can remind me how to embed a picture using a drop box or one drive link I'll share photos and the list for my not-quite-Ra gang.

Hi Strawbuk - a fascinating rules idea there, I like it a lot.

As for images you need a url for the image first. When I post pictures from my blogs here I clink on the picture and then copy its unique url.

In the three rows of icons above the writing space, choose the second icon in the second row, the one that looks like a painting. If you click it it should look like this: (img) (/img). Simply paste the url between the [/img]'s, and robert's your mother's brother!

Is he in the special version of the rules where you've taken all the 'u's out & replaced 's's with 'z's?   ;)
