I'm not sure why Tikorn would have so many, since I only answered one question; Albrecht's.

For me, it will be Xe. Tell me warrior, what did you discover in this man of the waves when stood aboard his ship?

You're right, my bad! Switched it back to you--highlight one of mine. Sorry for the confusion.

I saw that the captain was sharp, a keen eye and a cool understanding. Another would have lost many men to me in a futile attempt to keep something worth less to him than their lives. He saw the storm that is Xe, Who Walks Again coming, and let it pass on its way.

All right. Tikorn, pick me a highlighted stat.

Xíe? The soaking ghost I faced across my own deck stands before me again! And I'm not certain if I'm any less uneasy to see them now in the light. I don't mean she's rough on the eyes - no sir - but the way she moves draws your eye whether you want to look or not. Like a cat: Muscle sliding over muscle. The power can be perceived, but the true motivation and potential stays beneath the surface. For now. I'll need to keep an eye on this one. [Highlight Cool]

I've never met Albrecht Donnerfeldt face-to-face, but I hear the man cursed my name when I took the Amphosie from his docks at Broken Tooth. As a fellow man looking out for others in his charge - many more than my small crew, and half again as disciplined - I'm certain his mind lies on matters beyond my petty past trespass. To keep charge of such a squabbling mass of a settlement... he must either be an extraordinarily patient man, or - I suspect - a cold and imposing one. [Highlight Hard]

That's right!

Albrecht Donnerfeldt, to run a society, you need to know when to be hard, but you must always play it smart. Stay Sharp, and your people will love you.

Pentaviso, your life is about to get much more interesting, and the only way you will survive is to tap into the Weird side of things.

Xe, the time will soon come in which you must make life or death decisions. In those times, you must always be Hard.

Tikorn, those sailors will not love you forever. Remain Hard or risk a mutiny.

Siroko, if you are to get this revenge you so desperately crave, you cannot act rashly. Stay Cool and wait for the right moment to strike.
Siroko, you can't win if you don't prepare. Keep your wits about you and stay Sharp.

Question - Siroko has "Battle-hardened: when you go into danger, roll+hard instead of roll+cool. When you bait a trap, hunt prey, or escape a hunter, roll+hard instead of roll+cool." That basically eliminates the opportunity to roll +cool since that's most of the moves that use it. How's that work with the highlighting?

This actually isn't a charged situation, you don't need to roll at all.

Two quick notes on the NPC list:
  • Woyet Orkel died (in this world) a couple of years ago. His daughter Cerlen would likely still be working for him otherwise.
  • Captain Earit was Tikorn's captain in the old world. Tikorn served under him as a crewman until their ship was sunk in the battle against Botentin's fleet.

I guess my third question is going to be "whats my enemys true position?," and I plan to take a +1 for acting on it (and another +1 for acting on one of the other questions on a different roll) with the assumption that I'll receive a general spatial awareness of the threat as an answer. Should I post asking that question, and then another post after the answer with the rolled action? Or just roll with the question and the +1 in a single post?

@Comrade Gorbash

Whether you roll or not depends on what you're trying to do. If you're looking to get him to do something specific, name the thing, give him a reason to do it, and roll Seduce or Manipulate Someone. If you're trying to get a bead on him, roll Read a Person. If you're just trying to piss him off, that's not a roll.

(Also incidentally re: Xie's Seduce or Manipulate roll, I should have demanded a reason for the guard to do what Xie wanted, but didn't. That was a mistake on my part and don't worry about it LogicNinja, but next time I'll make sure I handle the move properly.)

Alright, I think I know kinda how it works, but I want to double check for this combat:
  • Should be "Single Combat," yeah? So then will be a 2d6+Hard
  • I have 1 armor
  • My battle-axe is "deadly: on the field," so that's 3 harm
  • I am also mounted against an unmounted foe, so that's another 1 harm (4 harm total) and an equivalence of another 1 armor (2 armor total, to be subtracted from harm inflicted upon me)

Is that how this goes, quiggy?

I think I could potentially take "Fight to hold your enemies off" again as well, and select "You seize a fleeting opportunity and strike an enemy within reach, inflicting harm," but I'm not sure how that works regarding harm against myself.

The golem is technically unmounted but because of size I'm gonna say that it basically counts as mounted, so no +1/-1 there. Provided you're engaging the golem directly, that's roll+hard for Single Combat, 3-harm for deadly range on your axe. Any harm the golem inflicts will be subtracted by 1 for your 1-armor, and obviously any harm you deal will be mitigated in part by the golem's natural stone armor.
