ok i have a wild speculation on parsons ugly idea. In the summer updates parson talked about a non archer trying to hit a far away target. Maggie and sizemore said that there was no problem with a unit (on the tower) attacking a unit in the courtyard. that is attacking across city boundaries.

It's only attacking across city zone boundaries for an attacker. For a defender, i.e. Parson's hypothetical non-archer, there are no boundaries - the city is treated as one zone.

Hmm - or perhaps there are boundaries, but they can be penetrated without expending move. Boundaries on Erf seem to have three specific interdependent properties:
1) they separate hexes and zones
2) they block all attacks except for some clearly defined exceptions: on-turn archery, on-turn ballistic defenses, off-turn volcanoes
3) they block all units, although a unit can penetrate a boundary by expending 1 move

Do city zone boundaries simply not exist for defenders, or do they just become permeable to all defender units/attacks without a concomitant move cost?

When Jillian was flying to the Transylvito capital, there was a comment that hills have a movement penalty.

From here

Quote:

The slowest of her two gwiffons still had a dozen move left. They didn't take much penalty for flying in mountains and none in hills,


If 1 move is normally consumed per hex, then it is harder to handle penalties. The game would have to track non-integer move, or the lowest penalty would be half speed.
Still the most significant part of this page: Parson can say "bullshit". He's breaking the rules more and more.

I'd say that's the least significant part of this page. He's been using swearwords freely since the end of TBfGK - it's been a year now, that isn't news anymore.

could the dwagons be turned into the "bricks" from the previous scenario? let them get croaked and then aim them at the archers as they fall. this was probably allready proposed.


Arrows stop at zone boundaries. It is unclear what happens to non-weapons when they hit a zone boundary, off turn.

Maybe, the 'brick principle' works. If the item doesn't have a weapon flag set, then maybe it can fall across boundaries. Ofc, if it doesn't have the weapon flag set, then maybe it cannot do damage.


I'm not so sure about that.

IIRC, the debris from the walls and tower in TBfGK crossed zone boundaries, smashing RCC troops that were in adjacent zones. Technically, these weren't weapons, just random debris from their destruction - but they still did damage.

Of course, given that GK was responding to an attack upon their city, that might be what allowed the debris to cross the zone boundaries . . .

For the defenders, everything ignores zone boundaries - when GK was under attack, GK troops could freely move between zones anyway. It's for the attacker that zone boundaries matter.
The Volcano affected multiple hexes.

And the RCC was freaked out by that, because it was supposed to be impossible.

OK. I thought him doing it was still a big deal.

It may be a big deal to Erfworld or to those with weak constitutions, but its not to Parson.
