Impetus bonus use by Inactive player unit.

Post by agrippa on Tue May 30, 2017 2:15 am

Let's say a Fresh active player unit charges a Fresh inactive player unit. Does the inactive player unit get to use it's Impetus bonus also in the coming battle?


Thanks,
Pat

Not unless it countercharges.

GG is right that only the charging unit gets the Impetus bonus (rule 7.4). However, there is no countercharge in Basic Impetus.

I think you are both right in the intent of the rules. That is how I usually play it. On not playing for a couple of months and rereading the rules again I found that the intent was not clearly stated.

A tweak to the first sentence of 7.4 would clarify it all.

7.4 IMPETUS BONUS
The Impetus Bonus is a dice modifier that the charging unit receives on the first turn of every melee......as long as they are Fresh.

I will write this into to my rule set.

Thanks,
Pat

You receive the impetus bonus provided you have moved - not just charged but pursuit, etc.

In full impetus that would include counter charge and being in motion and opportunity charged. Any forward movement grants you impetus (as long as you are fresh)

Zippee,

I am concerned here with BI2 only and those players who are using this ruleset as an entry to the IMPETUS system. They would have no preconceptions from the previous rule sets.

A CHARGE is defined in BI2 is any movement that results in contact with an enemy unit. This definition would include PURSUITS that contact an enemy unit to count as a CHARGE. I am satisfied with my simple clarification to the IMPETUS BONUS rule above based on what is currently written in BI2.

I would propose it to be included in any future FAQ for BI2 if the esteemed Author is agreeable.

Thanks,
Pat
