Outdistancing and overtaking
« on: November 24, 2016, 10:51:31 AM »
Hey guys! Quick question: When you miss on trying to outdistance and overtaking someone, they get to choose against you. It's the "against you" that I'm unclear about. If they choose the option, that normally says, they catch you, but you choose where, does that mean, they catch you, but you choose where, or do they catch you AND choose where?

Thx in advance!

I find this a little confusing, too.

In addition:

In the wording of the move's options, what does "the same" mean? ("...take 1-harm ap the same")

Should that be "from the strain", as in the other move?

same is a typo, it was mentioned in the lead-up posts in the sticky above and confirmed, that should read from the strain.

When the NPC takes the move's miss actions, you switch pronouns.
• They over take you, but their vehicle takes 1 harm ap from the strain.
• They don't overtake you, but they can drive you into a place they choose
• You outdistance them, but your vehicle takes 1 harm ap from the strain.

I strongly dislike the misses on this move, because point 1 and 3 are the same thing. So an enemy picking one doesn't really give them any advantage there, other then they got to pick; and the middle one isn't really a miss worthy. I recommend either choosing option two or just make a hard move as normal. Or make a hard move alongside.
