I'll just roll for my army now, because I'm impatient. Really, I think the best time for our crack team to take down TLR is when he's distracted with a few thousand other men trying to kill him.
Out Of Character: Click to revealShow
Resource roll for army, Difficulty 5.
Base 8 + 1 for House Lord trait
Kurkistan rolled 9d6:
1, 1, 1, 3, 4, 6, 4, 6, 1


Again
Kurkistan rolled 8d6:
5, 6, 3, 2, 2, 4, 6, 1


Again
Kurkistan rolled 7d6:
6, 5, 6, 1, 1, 5, 3


Booyah! Got my army. Nudges gives us 50% more each, so that's 20,000 men and 5 Extras. A nice distraction, I would say. :D

Actually, that was my last shot. I can't muster troops below 6 resources, and I was at 6+1. Wow. Lucky there.

Thereabouts 3 more minutes than you'll need, I think.

I'm going to keep going. Currently at 5 Resources.
Out Of Character: Click to revealShow
Employ a bodyguard to watch my back. Difficulty 2.
Kurkistan rolled 6d6:
4, 5, 3, 4, 4, 5


Hurrah. Now to be a tad more ambitious...

Employ a team of hazekillers to watch my back. Difficulty 4.
Kurkistan rolled 5d6:
1, 2, 6, 4, 3


Again
Invalid dice code!
Huh. It seems to not work. I guess I exceeded a limit? Oh well.

*pulls out dice roller*
5 with 0 Nudges (really, I swear I'm not lying here. 5 5 4 3). I got my team and my personal bodyguard.

2 Resources remaining. I'll just use them to buy a nice headstone, if you don't mind.
Also, Claincy was kind enough to point out that the shield adds dice to defense rolls, it doesn't absorb damage. My bad (again. I'm not doing to well here. I suppose my enthusiasm is overwhelming my sense of accuracy :D)

:P you put 4d4 in the tag instead of d6. I expect that's why it didn't work.

Ah. That's rather obvious, isn't it? Don't mind if I go with my other roll ;)

The roll you already did is probably better =) just thought I'd let you know.

I guess I could buff out Tyden as another possible character. Hmm, will work on that.

I'm guessing we attack the Lord Ruler while he's out and about in the empire for some reason. Influence rolls to reduce his attendants seems like a good plan.
