Bhelogan: I have a question on a mechanic in our game post.
My character made a buff on allies and after the roll indicated which allies should receive the buff.
In the game post today, you mentioned the buff applying to my character rather than the fourth designated ally.
If that particular ally cannot take the buff, then my character won't refuse it. But if that fourth ally can use the buff, then I'd like to request it remain with that ally since that is how it was designated immediately after the roll was made. It seems unfair or at least not sporting of me to take away an ally buff partly because I didn't realize an ally buff could also be self-applied

ETA: I realize I am being vague; trying to avoid spoilers and keep to a general question that might apply to others as well. Let me know, please, if I should PM or secret text you to be more specific with the question.

@bananabadger You had 4 successes, so everyone got a bonus. I think for RP flavor, one of them was applied to a piece of adventuring gear (I assume the 4th ally?), but that roll is still made and controlled by the PC. Were you wanting another player to get 2 buffs, and not have one yourself? If so, then they could use the buff this round, instead of your PC.

Thanks for answering.
Yes, I had indicated one player and their gear the 3rd and 4th buff. So if you are saying that is possible, I'd like to stick with original intent.
We could say it is because my character is magnanimous, or we could say it is because I am dense and didn't realize that self-buffing was allowed. I'm going to go with both being true.

I'm the second character in question and I can say, I find him splendidly magnanimous and not at all dense.

I'm sure it had nothing to do at all with the GM missing the intent the first read through either... =p

@Bhelogan:
I rolled my CN in an Outplay Roll that had a bonus, which corrected it to not be my CN anymore. Do I count that as two successes or not?

No, if the bonus pushes it over your CN, then it is just 1 success. If the bonus pushed the result the your CN, then it goes from being a failure to two successes. So, it can go both ways.

The wording of my buff, Boldness, be my Friend... - Buff - (Luck) Fortune favors the Bold, though sometimes it requires a little push. A single target will gain a bonus number of d6's on their next roll equal to the number of successes on this one.Boldness, be my Friend..., specified that the collective effect of the dice buff would go to one person only. That way, even if the person had no specific equipment or technique, the target could at least stand a chance of pulling off their next action. The intention was to give one person a sudden lucky break similar to 'Luck Heroes' like Marvel's Longshot or Domino. I wanted to confirm that it was still going to work that way before I got around to needing to use it during game-play.

Thanks!

@JustSomeGuy - we didn't go over changing the mechanic from what you have written, so it will work as described in your post (all dice to one player, rather than 1 die per success to different people)

Soooo..... I just noticed something in the posts from both of the groups in my bracket. Each player's post has their full text in a fieldset with their character name on it. Those that arrange the sections of their posts in fieldset tags look like they are nesting them inside that greater 'character name' fieldset. Is that something I was supposed to do? I didn't see it written down anywhere as a formatting rule, but I might have overlooked it or it is just an understood way that things are done. I looked back and noticed that it was done that way in the example of play, as well.

I'm not a Judge or GM, but as I understand it that's not really required. But you do want to make it easy for the Judges to follow the flow of your post and that's one way to do it.

It's just a way some people prefer to lay out their posts. Do what looks good to you.
