I noted it in the Hx: thread, but Doc knows Fetish better and gets Hx+1.

Did that for Mar. Also isn't the highlight thing only done once?

Sorry, work's a bitch this week, and I'm on pager (seriously, who gives employees an actual PAGER these days?) so I'll likely need to post on Monday evening.

Marcus- sounds to me like you are trying to read the situation. Go ahead and roll+sharp.

Everyone- don't forget that when you roll a highlighted stat you get to mark experience. I am not keeping track of that for you. Do me a favor though and let me know when you hit an improvement and what it is.

Gracias.

Anyone else planning on doing anything? Do so soon as I will be moving this game on tomorrow night, my time.

Ahhh, now I know the problem. I can't preview posts after I put in the roll.

Well I may as well ask my question here: Merc, what can Mar do to get Fetish to ignore the highway problem?

Fetish's mind is set. Short of knocking her unconscious, there is no way.

Wait I'm confused now, who's in the cab and who's in the trailer? Nils is in the cab, obviously, and I've had Doc in the trailer, but otherwise...?

I thought that was it for actually in the cab. Everyone else was in the bed of the truck.

Really? Surely Mar or someone is in there, right?

Nope, just Nils. Mar is in the back for visibility. If anyone's in the cab with Nils, it'd be Rhyme, and only if he asked nicely.

For some reason I thought Doc was in the cab. If Doc is in the trailer too, then Doc also takes 2 harm (less any armor of course).

FYI- do harm's roll first, I'll describe the aftermath, then tell me what you are doing.

For starters, Fetish will be knocked out cold.

For some reason, the dice roller isn't cooperating with me, so I'll roll my read a sitch here. 6

Well, so much for that idea.

I got a 9 for harm. Unless that means I don't notice Fetish going down, Doc's pouncing on that.
Something about the way harm and healing works has always bothered me since when I first read this game, maybe I need to just see it working.

I still want to see what happens with Mar and Rhyme's harm rolls first before moving on.

Quick notes on the dice roller:
1. You can't preview a post when roling dice. My suggestion is to do the dice, then go back and edit the text in.
2. You can't edit a post to then include the roller. It just doesn't work that way.

On healing- there's not a lot you can do for Fetish right at this point as far as healing goes. She's stable i.e. not losing any more blood, but will be uncoscious for a bit. Yes, this gets a bit into metagaming because how could you otherwise tell if someone is dead or not barring a really obvious clue (that here just isn't present).

The way healing would work is that you would roll+stock (stock being the amount of supplies from your angel kit) that you would want to spend. Harm itself isn't quite like hitpoints in other systems. Failing a harm roll doesn't mean you are dead, but it does give the MC a few options on where to go with it.

I was talking a bit about this with Merc about AW in general in how AW isn't a player-success driven game strictly. A player blowing a roll really just means that new options open up for the MC in the form of my moves. I'm doing my best to keep my moves consistent with the fiction of the world that we are building. In this case, Merc's blown Manipulate and Read rolls opened the door for me to make some hard moves of my own.
Nils not making the Read roll means I get to make another move. Not sure yet what it will be, and want to give Rhyme and Mar a chance to act.
