This is the first GSL game on Redscape. The hope is to make it a regular. Anyone interested in running a game let me know.

The trial game will be showdown 4, Thieves Fall Out. If you need the showdown rules let me know. We will be using rules section I (basic), II (brawling) and III (special weapons and skills).

There are 6 players/characters in this showdown and it's every man for himself, no allies.

Turn 2 notes:

Segment 2:
C2-There is no one in hex G4 so aim at hex
Segment 3:
C1 +2 VP, C3 -8 VP
C4-The "9-Draw&Cock" can move a weapon AND cock it. So you could have played another 2 time segments of actions.
Segment 4:
C2-Still no one in G4 so shot has no effect.
Segment 5:
C1-Second delay card is "Lose Aim". No aim on board so no effect.
C2-Advance cancelled, not enough time. Three cards played total 6 time segments.
End of turn:
C3's weapons are still on/near his body. They can be taken if you are in the same hex and use Draw&Cock. You would NOT draw a delay card for entering the hex.
C1 got 2 delay this turn. That is reduced to 1.
C6 delay is reduced from 2 to 1.
C6 should have been "Down" from last turn. Corrected map this turn.

I should have mentioned it at the beginning, but since this is a "Kill 'em all" showdown, BE hits are automatically "Vital" and therefore "Kill".

Next deadline: turn 3 due Wednesday, November 13 at 4pm EST/9pm UTC

Notes:
I have to take the heat for this one. Obviously, we are also using rules section IV. My confusion was, showdown 1 specifies to ignore all terrain. The next three showdowns use the same board, but none of them specify that. And, the rule book says "You can now play showdown 4" after rules section III. So, I relied a bit too much on my memory of playing the game.

Segment 1:
C2 revealed card 9 "Draw&Cock". Brad, you have the B3 bonus card that does the same thing faster

End of turn:
C1-delay reduced from 1 to 0
C4-2 delay from Drop, reduced to 1
C4-Shoot cancelled due to delay from Drop
C6-delay reduced from 1 to 0

No triggers pulled this turn, but I suspect that will not hold true for turn 4.
The Kid has 4 aim points on the Border Rider, El Jefe and Innocente have 2 points each.

Next deadline: turn 4 due Friday, November 15 at 4pm EST/9pm UTC

Notes:

Segment 1:
C1: Holee Crap! How the hell did that shot miss? Brad, buy a lottery ticket tonight!

Segment 3:
C1: Couldn't find it specified in the rules, but I already mentioned no delay for entering a hex with a dead body. However, there is 2 delay for card 1 while down.

Segment 4:
C4: did not specify execution. Default is to aim at a target you have aim on already.

Segment 5:
C1: card 5 cancelled due to delay
C2: 1 delay for a drop? Seriously, buy a lottery ticket!
C5: For attacks against Tim, Range and LOS are traced to the head counter. If Tim attacks, Range and LOS are traced from his head counter. However, his aim zone is defined by his body counter. (Rules 32.12, 32.2, 32.4 & 32.5) So he can shoot at Innocente since he is in his body's aim zone even though he's not in his head's aim zone.

End of turn:
C1: Delay reduced from 2 to 1
C4: Delay reduced from 1 to 0
C4: Has 4 aim on C2

Next deadline: turn 5 due Monday, November 18 at 4pm EST/9pm UTC

Notes:

Segment 1:
C1: is now the second dead body in hex G5

Segment 2:
C4: turn was vague as far as how many barrels to fire. I chose to fire both even though rule 25.3 says to fire one if not specified. Player listed "fire, fire, fire, fire", so I fired both. NOTE: the R10 is now unlodad.
C6: specified to aim at next closest target if aim lost on C1. Aim is not lost per rule 12.6, but it can be transferred per rule 12.5

End of turn:
C2 has 2 aim on C4
C6 has 8 aim on C1

Two misfires, one miss and one kill this turn.

Next deadline: turn 6 due Wednesday, November 20 at 4pm EST/9pm UTC

Notes:

Segment 0:
C4 draws a fatigue card; 0 delay, 0 endurance

Segment 5:
C4 draws 4 Wound cards (Stun 4); total 8 delay, 8 endurance. The Stagger result is ignored since he is down. And Serious 2 (for a total of 3). This means he will draw 3 fatigue cards at the beginning of each turn. At the end of the showdown (if he makes it), he likely will die per rule 14.5

End of turn:
C4 still has 5 delay remaining, he will do nothing on turn 7 except draw for his Serious wounds.
C5 has 2 aim on hex D5
C6 has 4 aim on C2

Innocente has taken two bullets and is still alive. But, for how long?

Teaching moment: El Jefe had 8 aim points on the Kid before the Kid fell. Rule 12.5 allows aim to be transferred to a new target one hex away for each play of card 5, 6 and/or 7. Rule 12.1 says that a hex can be a target. Therefore, he could have played card 5 and done nothing as a card action, and transferred his aim to hex F5. Then played card 6, done nothing for the card action, and transferred his aim to C2. At this point he would have had 8 aim points on C2. A play of the 7 card would have allowed an A10/R1 shot at the Border Rider.

Next deadline: turn 7 due Friday, November 22 at 4pm EST/9pm UTC

Notes:

Segment 0:
Innocente draws 3 fatigue cards; 5 delay, -5 endurance

Segment 5:
El Jefe takes a side hit from the Drifter: Stun 2, 2 delay, -2 endurance total. Stagger (Note the card draws under Drifter. The rules say the shooter draws for a Stagger result, although I don't know why it would matter who draws the card) is no effect since El Jefe is down.

End of turn:
Innocente's delay reduced from 10 to 5. He still has 5 delay so will do nothing on turn 8 except draw 3 more Fatigue cards.
El Jefe delay reduced from 2 to 1.

Border Rider's blood now stains all that money.

Next deadline: turn 8 due Monday, November 25 at 4pm EST/9pm UTC

NOTE: Looking ahead, Thursday, November 28 is Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. Friday the 29th will be a soft deadline for turn 10. The hard deadline will be Monday, December 2.

Turn 8 notes:

Segment 0:
Innocente draws 3 fatigue cards; 1 delay, -1 endurance

End of turn:

Innocente's delay reduced from 6 to 3, endurance reduced to 11
El Jefe's delay reduced from 1 to 0

Two seconds of relative silence except for the sound of two rifles cocking.
Innocente can play 2 time segments this turn. Not enough time to move a weapon or back up (Draw&Cock and Back are both 3 time segments)


Next deadline: turn 9 due Wednesday, November 27 at 4pm EST/9pm UTC

Notes:

Segment 0:
Innocente draws 3 fatigue cards; 1 delay, -1 endurance

Segment 5: Drifter's shot is resolved first, and it's a BE (Vital). However, since shots on the same segment are simultaneous, El Jefe's shot is still resolved. The trough took the bullet and left Drifter uninjured.

End of turn:
Innocente's delay reduced from 4 to 2, endurance reduced to 10

El Jefe becomes Drifter's first kill. Now there are only two people left alive, and one is badly wounded. What will Drifter do? Innocente can finally do something, at least. But not a heckuva lot. He can play 3 time segments this turn; Draw&Cock? Back Up? Something else. And, one more hex in Innocente's direction would give Drifter a Range 0 opportunity, assuming he takes the time to get 4 aim points of markers down.

Teaching moment: The question came up earlier, with Drifter down behind the trough could he be shot in the body, legs, etc? El Jefe's shot this turn gave a basic answer to that question. It would have been a BODY hit but the "Head status" line changed that to a miss. I admit I haven't studied the Result Cards, so it's possible there may be some where, for example, an arm hit may or may not be reduced (since he still could have one or both arms showing). But, basically, this is how the game system manages just this situation.

Since we're down to just Tim and John I'd like to switch to trigger mode (pardon the pun). Deadlines will still be at least 48 hours, but as soon as I have those two moves I'll resolve the turn.

Be thinking about the next showdown. I was looking at either 3 or 19 to get in a little brawling.
Also, let me know if you will be playing the next one. At this time it's still just me running one game.

Next deadline: turn 10 due Friday, November 29 (soft), Monday, December 2 (hard) at 4pm EST/9pm UTC

Notes:

Segment 0:
Innocente draws 3 fatigue cards; 3 delay, -3 endurance

End of turn:
Innocente's delay reduced from 5 to 2, endurance reduced to 7
Drifter has 2 aim on Innocente

The tension builds. Another shot should ring out soon. Note that if Innocente survives long enough to finish two consecutive turns with more delay than endurance remaining, he will pass out effectively ending the showdown since he could no longer be a target.

Next deadline: trigger mode in effect, turn 11 due Wendesday, December 4 at 4pm EST/9pm UTC

Notes:

Segment 0:
Innocente draws 3 fatigue cards; 5 delay, -5 endurance

Segment 5:
Innocente: Stun 4-4 Wound Cards (7 delay, -7 endurance), Stagger (no effect), Serious 2 (total 5)

End of turn:

Innocente's delay reduced from 14 to 7, endurance reduced to 0


Innocente is now guaranteed to pass out with 0 endurance and to die with Serious 5 per rule 14.12. Since Drifter inflicted the most Serious wounds to him, he gets the VPs for Kill. And this also makes Drifter last man standing which means two things; first he gets the +20 VPs for the money bags, and second, the showdown is over.

Thanks for a good game, guys! Information on the next showdown coming soon!
