Hello friends. I have a couple of new questions regarding dueling maneuver rules, and I'd welcome your thoughts to make sure I understand this correctly:
1. Let's say an Aldana Fencer with Weaponry 3 and Panache 3 is facing an opponent in a duel and has rolled 3 raises. The Aldana spends 1 Raise to Feint (inflicting 1 wound and 1 addtional damage on further attacks) and then spends a second Raise to perform the Aldana Ruse (additional wounds equal to Panache on next hit), and finishes with a Slash. Would both the Feint and Ruse benefits be cumulative, increasing the Slash damage to 7? (3 for Weaponry Skill, 1 for Feint bonus, 3 for Aldana Ruse's Panache bonus).
2. A Mireli Fencer (Weaponry 3) rolls 3 raises during a duel; her opponent (a Sabat with Finesse 3 and Weaponry 3) rolls only a single raise. The Mireli spends 1 raise to Bash (1 wound and reducing damage from opponents next attack by Weaponry Skill) and spends her second raiser to perform Mireli's Revision (which has the effect of either a Bash or Parry; in this case the Mireli chooses the Bash effect again), followed by a third maneuver. The opponent spends his single raise to perform a Sabat Gambit (Finesse 3+Weaponry 3+1 Raise=7 wounds). However, since the Mireli used Bash and the Revision against him, would the Sabat Gambit be reduced to only 1 damage: -3 for the Bash, and -3 for the Revision?
3. Last question: Let's say an opponent uses Parry or Riposte to prevent the damage from a duelist's Bash or Feint-does the extra benefit from the Bash or Feint still apply even if the 1 wound is prevented, or would you say that it is cancelled? (My own interpretation would be to allow the benefit to stand, as I would picture this as the distraction of defending from a Feint or Bash puts the opponent in a vulnerable position. But I would welcome other people's thoughts on this?)
