I have been reading these forums for a few days but today I had this urge to create an account just because of a scene that's popped up into my mind.
I wanted to share it and ask for different points of view as how would you guys do it.
I guess everyone (or almost everyone) have at least thought about an epic duel between your hero and the villain on the top of a carriage that is dashing down a market street to the port with no horses. Slashing left and right while both are trying to be ON the carriage and not on the street with less teeth, and also avoiding clothes lines, balconies and such.
Now... About that scene and after reading here and there I had a few ideas of what could happen, (besides everything else that is already happening!) but I am not really sure about how to approach them.
First thing: Disarm. I know it has not been implemented but I, and I guess some of you, love disarm from the first edition. There is an example where a hero could create an opportunity using one raise to "disarm" a guard and throwing their pistol so another hero could grab it. In this case... what if the hero or the villain want to disarm each other? The scene of a duel that changes into a pugilist or a street fight is also very appealing. I considered a few options but I ended up with something like: the villain spends one raise to disarm the hero (or the other way around). That turns into a consequence that can be avoided if the hero or villain spends a raise right away... like catching the sword before it hits the ground or the window or whatever it hits.
Second thing: Throw off balance. One kick, in the face. The hero wants to throw the villain off the carriage (or the other way around). I guess I would take the same option I stated above. One raise (or more) to hit, instead of wounds, I create a consequence that the villain has to avoid using at least the same amount of raises or losing balance.
Then my imagination went wild and started with things like: Perhaps they lose balance but can use one hero(danger) point or one raise to be left hanging by one hand while their feet are hitting the ground, and then they curse when they see the hero(villain) on top looking at them with a smile and sword in hand.
Anyways, you get my point :P
What would you guys do? These things are bound to happen sooner or later in different scenes. I'm curious :)
