I don't think it's that weighted. Remember, I can lose if I run out of Force Points, but you don't have that risk.

And the reason I chose this strategy was for storytelling potential.

So, I lose 3 Combat points, and go down to 22. I also gain 1 Force Point, so I have 5 of those. You have 25 and 3, unchanged.

I will write my next flashback scene ASAP. You can start considering strategies.

Edit: well, that stinks. I'm tempted to spend a force point, but I'd have to roll 6, so I don't like that risk/reward calculation. I guess I have to lose 5 combat points. I should have accepted how flipping difficult this strategy is to beat, and cut my bet. Oh well, I drop to 17.

It's pretty tough, yeah.
Which is a good thing, because I really wanted that specific outcome.
Sort of interesting how the designer can influence the storytelling of a game in subtle ways.

Do the stories have to be chronological? If not, should we make a fictional timeline?

I guess they don't have to be chronological.

...and now, I have to explain how one of your friends died. Man, this game creates some real storytelling challenges.

And as a result of the conflict to boot, which is pretty interesting.

In that case, I propose that Introduction happened year 0, since I don't want to dive into the chronology of the Star Wars universe right now. And then I will just assume that each story follows shortly after the next one unless stated otherwise.

I have an idea. I'll see if i have time to write it up later today, otherwise I'll post it tomorrow evening.

And yeah, chronology is complicated. Like, I don't even know if this all happens in the Old Republic, or in an unspecified future. And I don't really care.

Writing is difficult.
I don't think I'd consider playing this game irl basically ever.

Yeah, but it's a fun challenge. Anyway, you're choosing the strategy again.

I thought it was every other, but looking at the ruleset, it seems that the loser chooses, so nuh-uh.

No:

"Each round, the winner of the previous round chooses a combat strategy. This cannot be the same strategy as the last round, or the same as the last time that player chose."

Well how about that, I misread that part. So we've been doing that wrong up until now. But that seems okay, since we still got one each.

Well then, round 4:

A NEW ACQUAINTANCE
Battle: Die + bet + 1 against die + bet
The winner: No effect
The loser: Lose 2
Description: The loser will describe how a new person got involved in the conflict. The new character is on the same side as the one who chose this strategy.

I'm conflicted. I'd like for you to win so you can express your character a little as well, but at the same time, I have no incentive not to go all in on the roll.

Are you kidding me!? Somehow the dice roller seems completely biased against me. Even if I spent a force point on a reroll, I would only have a 1/6 chance of winning. This is absurd. And I'm not going to spend two force points over two combat points. I guess I'm taking another loss.

Well, there, wrote another flashback scene. No idea how you'll mix it in with the duel, as you're not in the scene, but that's your problem.

oh god I forgot about this, despite having two dedicated tabs open for it, sorry.
I'll see if I can whip up something.

Aside; please use a darker shade of green next time.

Yeah, that was a terrible color, looking at it again. Fixed.

Anyway, status check:
Tress has 15 Combat points and 5 Force points
Malus has 25 Combat points and 3 Force points

Round 5:

THE CONFLICT DEEPENED
Battle: Die + bet against die + bet
The winner: No effect
The loser: loses his bet + 1
Description: The loser will describe how something leads to increased hostility between both fighters.
