Quote... when the Conflict has begun, Action type is fixed for all the PCs in the conflict (and I don't use multi action). Also, magic cannot be used in emergency. Here Nath joined the Conflict. So considering these two rules I decided that she had to make a magic roll, but that she couldn't describe magic actions. So she could throw stones, but that was a magic conflict. We struggled a bit with that but eventually that made sense. There was a similar situation at the end and we didn't even stop, all fitted naturally.
Quote from: Ron Edwards on March 05, 2009, 03:15:32 PMThis confuses me a little bit, but I think the solution lies in what Nath's goal was. When you say "joined the conflict," do you mean, had the same goal as the first trollbabe? Because you should treat the two conflicts entirely independently - there's no such thing as "help the other trollbabe win her conflict," in rules terms, although that can be what is happening in the trollbabe's mind and also can be factored into narration without a problem. Unless I'm misunderstanding the example, the second trollbabe's Goal would have been simply fighting the crow. The current rules don't explain any of this, but in the new write-up, I devote a lot of space to all the ways that multiple trollbabes may participate in conflicts.
