Protocol for rules references for special units and conditions in scenarios? Sun, 09 February 2014 22:55
Comrades, can anyone tell me what the standard protocol is in the description section of a new scenario for giving the reference for units, special terrain, or special conditions? I've seen references such as "Sniper Rules (Troops 10)" or "Snipers are described on p5"

What is the preferred format as we design and post online? What is best?

Personally, I would much rather see scenarios follow the Official format. In the Official scenarios, they use the "Sniper Rules (Troop 10)" format.

But it's your scenario, so you can do it as you want. Smile

Ras,
Where is the Official format found? Is this the source for those:

http://www.daysofwonder.com/memoir44/en/content/cards_compen dium/

I might just do both because as a new player, when I'm invited into a new scenario or a new front, I'd like to have a clear idea of where to find info for my units (in addition to the right click help on the board) as I play. And where to go after the game to get that unit or nation or terrain figured out, strategy-wise... Rolling Eyes

Yep, that's the link that will give you access to all of the Summary Cards, and the Summary Cards are what the rules are talking about.

Generally, the scenarios in the expansions that added a new rule use the "is explained on p. X" format. The rulebooks of the expansions explain the new feature better than the compendium cards. I have encountered a case or 2 where the compendium card did not fully explain a borderline case of the effect, but the rules book did.

In all subsequent scenarios, the rule is considered to be "common knowledge" and only references in the format "xxxxxx rules (troops/actions/terrain/SWA/... XX)" are used.

Wow! Appreciate you Wim and Ras! That rules page is a war treasure chest! Thanks for directing me towards those and helping sorting out some protocol.
