<!--Um. That boss earlier. .. the game said it was the 800th. Time to confess to boss addiction. :)
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
Congratulations. ^_^
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
And who could complain? Bosses can be quite fun.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
Yeah... looking forward to the new sport around it, really would be cool should it prove to be a hit.
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
Right... I have to do something with that!
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
I'd love to try it once the folks I've asked get back to us. :)

"09:18: Strange words came in a puff of smoke: 'I said "PIG" you insolent... Why would you need a shovel to get gold anyway?'" -- Baron la Croix (? French spelling, anyway).
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
Someone may ask what happens if a hero dies so there might be a note about if it would affect things or not. Even if only one line.
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
It's D!
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
Another Guild member?
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
Last she mentioned him that's where he was headed.
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
Oh! Good point!
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
What do you think should happen if someone kicks?
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
Don't know. .. assumed it was already figured out. Probably nothing unless there's some better idea?
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
It sounds to me like sending a player back to the dugout.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
And after all, all influences and VC types are allowed.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
Any ready equivalent or translation for the game? *lost in thought*
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
So if you bat with the wrong sort of VC, your hero kicks from bad management. ;)
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
I don't know. Hmm.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
Yeah- what happens then? Points scored uo to then get kept or changed?
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
Kept. They're still runs scored.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
Thought so.
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
I can't think of a time that would necessitate disqualifying a run.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
And. .. what do we do with miracles in case someone hits it by accident?
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
*Shrugs.* it's still an influence.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
But that's why faithless-leeching counts as bad weather.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
OK. Do we count loot destruction as a backfire I wonder
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
We don't want to encourage miracles.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
Absolutely.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
All influences have a backfire. ;)
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
If a non-player miracles and destroys loot, that's no reason to call the inning, though.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
It feels like a backfire when you do it- that stuff smarts.
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
Especially after the third pitch.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
Agreed.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
Right.
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
Shoot. I should be writing this down.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
And if all players die off, or all players and all allies?
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
...hadn't thought. I'd count the runs as scored and the inning ended.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
What do you think?
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
Have to give it some thought. ..
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
If they all die off, players and allies, probably call it... should it be discounted or just keep what did get scored? Probably the second one since it's about hero obedience and influence success as far as I understand. Would that work?
 +
Jimbob642h
 +
That makes sense.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
And not every swing has to be for a run. There are no strikes or outs here.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
You can simply prayer and heal VC without influences.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
It's about technical precision, predicting random, and hero obedience.
 +
SourceRunner2h
 +
Makes a great deal of sense. Too msny restrictions seem to turn some people off things. So, focus in scoring would be on success of action and orders over survival, which is a natural side effect? Jimbob642h
 +
That would be one way to play. I'd still favor survival, though, and there's something to be said for prolonging the battle to get more chances to score runs.
 +
SourceRunner1h
 +
The baseball game will be about scoring the runs. But it only overlays the dig, not subverts it. ;)
 +
SourceRunner1h
 +
Anything you would do naturally with a boss is clean pool.
 +
SourceRunner1h
 +
Good. Anything special after step 60 when multipliers kick in, or do we keep it simple?
 +
Jimbob641h
 +
I was just thinking to keep it simple. A run is a run, no matter when it happens.
 +

Jimbob641h
 +
Whoa! Sorry, was I distracting you?
 +
SourceRunner1h
 +
Good plan. If more can understand easily, it's that much simpler when it catches on.
 +
Jimbob641h
 +
Nope. From where I'm standing the boss was the distraction.
 +
Jimbob641h
 +
OK. I think I can remember this stuff. Just can't put it on the talk page right now. --!>

Dig Monster Baseball

Players: Two teams of 2-4 players Object: Score the most runs in nine innings.

How: Two teams agree to dig together and against each other. Each boss that two or more team mates dig begins an "inning" for the digging team. A team scores a "run" by having one player land a successful influence and a successful VC on a successful attacking round. The VCs and influences can be of any sort, so long as they have exactly the intended effect (no back- or mis-fires). There is no limit to the number of runs scour able in an inning. Whatever team has the most runs after nine innings for each team (or more, if a tie persists) wins.

Rule: There are no partial runs-- no loading bases.

Exceptions: Innings may be postponed for inclement weather (deafening boss or faithless-leeching boss) and spectator interference (number of non-players in on the field equals or exceeds the number of players on the field in a given inning), but postponement must be made publicly before the third "pitch" (attacking round).

Game One -- Will figure out how to do up an inning score table.
