QuoteThere have been all sorts of debates about what constitutes defeating opponents
Quote from: Ron Edwards on April 06, 2006, 03:55:47 PMNo, they didn't. They defeated, overcame, etc, five hyenas. The other two were not overcome, defeated, avoided, tricked, frightened away, bought off, or given hyena treats. The players did and achieved nothing regarding the well-being or presence or continuation of the encounter, regarding those two hyenas.Some twenty-year-old telling me what constitutes a defeat in D&D? I don't think so.Best, Ron
Quotegiven that said encounters really were conflicts with significant outcomes in terms of advantage or status
QuoteSee, I don't recall any discussion of that sort of thing from way back when, although I admit the last issue of the Dragon I read was maybe in 1982. What's the word on that now?
