Box Canyon
Character Assignment

Attached are the character assignments for Box Canyon. I'm not sure I've ever mentioned,
the number by the name is the card drawn for assignment. It will be removed as of turn 1.
Also, the cards drawn for character assignment are reshuffled into the deck, so the showdown
begins with a full deck of Result Cards.

Side C sets up first on board B and/or H. The first setup will be due on Friday to give
sides a chance to develop strategies. All communication can be private during this period.
Once I publish C3's (or both C3's and C6's) setup on Friday all communication must be public.

Also note the starting VPs.

Remember all sides can only exit the board on the east (right) side. In typical A-H form,
it is noted that "Captured characters are killed." with no other information. Since the rustlers
and posse are "...trapped...by Indians." the assumption is that any side B and/or side C
characters on the board at the end of the showdown are the ones that are "captured" and "killed".
This is true even if there are no side A characters left alive (other Indians arrive to capture
the surviving characters). Those side B and side C characters left on the board at the end will get
-4 VP for "captured" AND -8 VP for "killed" in addition to any VPs gained/lost during the showdown.
Any character that does leave the board gets -2 VPs for "Run Away". (Beats the heck out of the -12 VPs
for being on the board at the end of the showdown)

Next deadline: Charaacter 3 (Jeff Miller) or Side C due Friday, May 13 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC

Turn 2 notes:

Segment 2:

Guard aim: 0 Aim Markers, +0 card 7, +1 2H skill = 1/Range: 12 hexes, +1 Head = 13

Segment 4:

Fast Draw aim: 8 Aim Markers, +0 card 7, +0 2H skill = 8/Range: 12 hexes, +1 Head, /3 H44 = 4
Guard takes a BODY hit:
STUN3: 7 delay, -7 endurance
SERIOUS2: will draw 2 Fatigue cards at the beginning of each turn
Guard loses his aim on hex E-E9

Segment 5:

Guard Aim canceled: delay

End of turn:
Guard delay reduced from 8 to 4
Guard endurance reduced from 20 to 13

NOTE: The Kid asked to aim at G-H16. He has no LOS to that hex. The default is to aim at the nearest
hex to the one requested. Trees block all over the place; G18 is the closest hex that is in LOS.
(And that is pretty close, but it's there.)

Next deadline: turn 3 due Wednesday, May 25 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC

Turn 6 notes:

Segment 0:
Guard draws 2 Delay cards for SERIOUS2: 2 delay, -2 endurance

Segment 2:
Fast Draw has LOS to Guard. It's very close, but it's there
Eagle transfers his aim to hex E-A5 and aims with card 5: aim now 4
(Remember, actions are simultaneous. He noted to aim at The Kid, but
The Kid moved out of LOS on the same segment. So the default of "closest
hex to named target" was used. E-A5 was chosen as he could transfer aim
there, as opposed to G-B19 which has a smaller range but couldn't transfer
there. I always try to "default" in favor of the player when possible)

Segment 5:
Hawk aim: 2 Aim Markers, +0 card 7, +2 2H skill = 4/Range: 3 Hexes, +1 Head, /2 W44s = 2
The Kid draws 2 Delay cards for Drop: 3 delay
Guard Head Out canceled: delay

End of turn:
Guard delay reduced from 3 to 1
Guard endurance reduced from 10 to 8
Quiet Man delay reduced from 1 to 0
The Kid delay reduced from 3 to 1

Turn 8 notes:

Segment 0:
Guard draws 2 Delay cards for SERIOUS2: 3 delay, -3 endurance

Segment 4:
Eagle asked to aim at H-Q18. There is no LOS, the tree trunk in J16/J17 blocks. H-P17 is the closest hex with LOS

Segment 5:
Quiet Man aim: 4 Aim Markers, +0 card 7, +0 2H skill = 4/Range: 16 Hexes, +1 Head, /4 W44 = 4

End of turn:
Guard delay reduced from 5 to 2
Guard endurance reduced from 4 to 1
The Kid delay reduced from 1 to 0

Note 1: This is the first turn Guard finishes with more delay than endurance. Unless he gets 0 delay and loses
0 endurance at the beginning of next turn, he will also finish that turn with more delay than endurance and will pass out.

Note 2:
Quiet Man's gun has jammed. Rule 13.31 says the gun is emptied (done by me on the legend) and cannot fire again until it
has been completely reloaded (emphasis theirs). The W44 is a "normal" loading weapon which means 1 shell/load.

Next deadline: turn 9 due Monday, June 13 at 4pm EDT/8pm UTC

Segment 2:
Quiet Man loses his Head counter: no longer in Aim Zone

Segment 3:
Eagle loses his aim on hex H-P17: executed foot action other than Turn
Eagle loses his Head counter: executed foot action other than Turn

Segment 4:
Fast Draw asked to aim at Hawk. Hawk is directly behind a slope hexside which blocks LOS.
He tried to anticipate Hawk's move so aims at E-D6.
Hawk draws 2 Delay cards for movement across a slope hexside: 2 delay

Segment 5:
Axe aim: 2 Aim Markers, +0 card 7, +0 2H skill, +2 Shotgun Bonus = 4/Range: 2 Hexes, +1 Head = 3
Note: Since barrel 1 misfired but was not affected, the R10 is still cocked with 1 shell and may be fired again.

Hawk Sprint canceled: delay

Turn 10 notes:

Segment 0:
The Kid draws 2 Fatigue cards for SERIOUS2: 2 delay, -2 endurance

Segment 2:
Fast Draw draws 2 Delay cards for crossing Slope hexside: 2 delay
Eagle loses his aim on hex G-D18: executed foot action other than Turn

Segment 3:
Fast Draw Draw&Cock canceled: delay

Segment 5:
Fast Draw Turn canceled: delay
Quiet Man draws 1 Delay card for Sprint: 2 delay
The Kid Shoot (B2 & 7) canceled: delay

End of turn:
Fast Draw delay reduced from 2 to 1
Quiet Man delay reduced from 2 to 1
The Kid delay reduced from 4 to 2
The Kid endurance reduced from 15 to 13

Note: As it stands there is no LOS between Fast Draw and Hawk as Fast Draw is directly behind
a slope hexside. As strange as it seems, even if Hawk moves to F8 (and Fast Draw turns to the
right) there still would not be LOS according to rule 31.32. One or the other (or both) would
have to put their head out.
