Chain Actions & Chain Activations

While we retained the alternating Activations of the original game, what we chose to do was create the opportunity for key moments where momentum can suddenly shift - if your preparations are right, that is!

Normally during your Turn you can Activate a Supreme and in addition Command a Minion card.

A Supreme can normally use between 1 and 3 Actions. Only 1 Action may be an Exclusive Action (those Actions on the card), although a second Exclusive Action may be used if it is Combinable. Move Actions may be used in addition and/or in place of the basic Exclusive Action. Of course, all rules are made to be broken!
Chain Action Example (Figure 1): Some models have their own rules that allow the Actions limit per Activation to be exceeded. Chronin's Time Control Power allows her to Combine any number of Action in a single Activation, allowing her to theoretically use 5 Actions (2 Moves, and up to 3 Exclusive Actions). This can be extended further if she is lucky with her Flurry Action!

And of course, the rule about Activating a single Supreme in a Turn can be broken too!
Chain Activation Example (Figure 2): It is the start of the Round and the Heroes have won the Starting Roll against the Ulthar. Trail (1) starts the Hero Turn using Mind Strike against Stormblades. As Trail had not yet Activated this Turn, thanks to his A Second Ahead Power, a Friendly model may Activate. Dead Eye (2) Moves in and uses his Power Smash. If Stormblades is still standing, then with Dead Eye's Tactics Power Jade Hawk could Activate (3), Moving in to Attack with her Death Claw. And of course Stinger may use his Power to swap places with Stormblades....

Looking To The Future

Inside cover
Before I resume posts about the new rules in the next couple of weeks, I wanted to flag up one of the cool things I think we have done with the new book. There is more fluff than last time. Much, much more.

This time around we have told the story from the perspective of the various key Factions, so that will give more insight into the who, what, and why of your favourite Supreme Teams. More than just that, we also take a look into the future in more ways than one. We drop some hints that may take a bit of digging to find, and that connect some of the dots of what we plan for the future of the Pulp City storyline and new Factions, while also revealing a good number of Supremes not seen before and that we plan to introduce in the future. So to anyone picking the book up - from the KS or when the book is available through retail after fulfilment is complete -we hope you will find some pleasant surprises!

Okey dokey, another 'welcome' goes out, this time to supers and 7TV fan Blaxkleric of the Fantorical blog (click for link). Thanks for signing up, and I will be Following Blaxxcleric's own updates from now on!

There will be a Pulp City SE post tomorrow, nothing major, but just so you guys know. :)


Welcome to Follower #140, Mark Rivera. It took a bit of digging but I *think* Mark is the 140th Follower signed up (it can be hared to tell with the Followers gadget!!).

Thanks as always for signing up. :)

There should be more content soon, in a couple of weeks, as I have a big (read important and lengthy) course essay to get out of the way first. That said, I will have a new quick post in the next couple of days. When proper posting resumes, I hope to get 'under the hood' (apologies to Mr. Moore) of the new rules a little more with the Pulp City SE game ahead as we are getting much closer to fulfilment.

I also have this year's Hallowe'en Madness game with Rob on the near horizon. Rob has been working a a terrain piece for this as we depart the mean streets of Pulp City for lush jungle. I have to re-base a mini today ahead of that game, so hopefully that will go well!
