Closest Target and LOS questions

Postby Brakan » Sun Jul 28, 2013 4:20 pm

Hi,
I just read the rules and two questions.

1. Shooting at closest Target.
When do I have to pass the nerve test?
(a) Do I test nerves to be allowed to declare a shot at a more distant target or
(b) do I declare the distant shot, test neves and lose the shot if I fail?

2. obscured LOS
How exactly do I have to draw my LOS?
Unfortunattely the example on page 9 does not answer this.
Image
(1) From middle of (S)hooter's base to middle of (T)arget's base
(2) The whole width of the bases
(3) From the middle of the shooter to every point of the target?

Nice diagrams.

Number 2 is the answer. On taking a nerve test re. closest target, we're happy to let the game flow and only to take a nerve test in that situation if the opponent points it out. It feels right as the gunfight is fast and furious and keeps it flowing.

Hello,

my english isn't that good, but I would like to know, too, when do I have to make the nerve test. Variant a) or b)?

Sure, I can decide it on my own, but I would like to know what the designers intended.

Thank you!

Hi, can some one answer to the first question?

1. Shooting at closest Target.
When do I have to pass the nerve test?
(a) Do I test nerves to be allowed to declare a shot at a more distant target or
(b) do I declare the distant shot, test neves and lose the shot if I fail?


Thanks.
