How to do a Battle

Post by Admin on Fri Aug 05, 2016 7:09 pm

Sending in your Information
Probably one of the most important steps for performing a modded battle.  Once a BM is called in, the BM will ask you to send your information and actions to them.  The information the BM is asking for are your battle stats.  These ought to already be in your profile, so you could easily quote your profile and send it to the BM.
Otherwise, if you want to do it manually, you must send the following:
Link to Profile
Combat Racial Abilities
Battle Abilities (associated with your character)
Link to your Sentry that you will be using
Link to your weapons/shields (all that apply)
Link to your Ether Drive
The BM will calculate the rest.  
IMPORTANT:  You will send this information to your BM via site PM.  Make sure you label the PM clearly.
IMPORTANT:  This only needs to be done PRIOR to sending your first round actions


Rolling Initiative
Before sending in your actions, you will write out an RP and roll initiative.  Due to this site having 3 actions per round, you are to roll initiative 3 times.  The picture in the spoiler below will show you what it looks like and where to find how to roll the dice:
Spoiler:

As you can see in the red box, there is a place to select which dice you want to use.  For rolling initiative, select the Initiative Dice.  
Since you have to roll initiative 3 times, change the box that says "1" to "3".  
Try not to mess up the rolls.  

After you see what you rolled for initiative, remember that the higher the number means the faster you are.  Since you roll your initiative openly, you can see when your actions will happen and you will also be able to know when your opponent's actions will happen.  So keep what you see in mind when submitting your actions.  

Protip:  While there is a certain period of time that you can send your actions (3 days), it would be wise to wait to see when your opponent(s) initiatives are before determining your actions.  But don't be late when sending in actions.

Important Note:  Not that you would be able to, but you cannot roll on your first post.


Sending in your Actions
Now that you have sent all of your information to the BM, posted your RP, and rolled your initiative (3 rolls, remember that) now you have to submit your actions!  Remember, you only have 3 actions during the round (to include your 1 Reactionary Spell and 1 Conditional Statement [See the Battle Rules for more details]).  

When you submit your actions, they will happen in the order that you rolled initiative.  So if you rolled (like below: a 10, 9, 1), your very first action will most likely be first due to it being the best initiative while your second action has a very high probability of being first, and your third action most likely being last. So keep this order in mind when writing up your actions. There are some actions that may increase or decrease your initiative, so keep that in mind (don't worry about calculating that, yourself, the BM will deal with that).

Simply submit your actions in the order you want them carried out. Since the BM has a link to all of your spells and stuff, they will have a very clear understanding of your spells and how fast they will go.

Once you have done the above 3 things, just wait for the BM to post the round of combat's results.
