Orders and half actions in 1st Ed.

Recommended Posts

Im revisiting 1st Ed. and downloaded a comprehensive rules document off BGG. Its seems the Orders rule has changed a bit. Id appreciate it if someone could clarrify or link some discussion to help me settle how they are not intended to work.

In the original rules book Orders are just a simple straight forward action - AIMed shot, Dodge for a Turn or Guard and interrupt action.. oh and REST. But now theres this inclusion of a "half action". So... you could move your Speed then Aim and take the shot next turn? Or Move and then Dodge until your next turn or even Attack and then Dodge until your next turn etc.??

Im a little confused. help?

A "Ready" action allows you to perform 2 half actions, one of which is an order.

So, you can:

Move up to your speed and place an order (Aim, Dodge, Guard, or Rest) -or-

Make an attack and place an order (Aim, Dodge, Guard, or Rest). 

Note that the order placed can be done at any time during your turn.

So, for example, you can declare a "Ready", place an Aim order on yourself, and then immediately make an attack using that Aim.

Does this clear things up?
