Carrying over APs

Post by custosarmorum on Thu Nov 12, 2015 2:57 am

In the rules, under initiative (6.0), it says "You can pass your turn and keep a maxi-mum of 6 Action Points which can be car-ried forward for next turn or for Opportunity actions, any other points are lost."

Is this they only way to carry over APs or can you carry over left over APs after making a normal move? I suspect no based on the quote but just wanted to make certain.

Thanks.

it is the only way. Actually I cannot understand what you mean with the other option. A normal move?

Thanks, Lorenzo. Yes, I was initially thinking that you could carry over 6 APs after a normal move but as I reread the section, it seemed I had misread it initially. But I just wanted to make sure.

Thanks for the prompt response!

What I meant by a "normal move" is after actually using APs during the move and simply keeping any extras afterwards. For example, if I roll 13 APs and use only 7, can I carry the remaining 6 over to the next turn. I now see I need to pass my turn to carry over the 6 APs.

note that you can save 6pts when you don't need in that turn and they can be useful in the next (maybe you are planning a general attack, so APs will be important). You will roll for new APs anyway so those 6 APs simply will be added to the bunch (but will notcount for winning initiative).

Also those 6 APs (or less, you can save less than 6) could be useful to keep some APs for opportunity action while your opponent is acting.
