Questions about kind of vague abilities

Post  KaylisDX on Mon Mar 25, 2013 4:11 pm

I've been having a few issues in regards to some skills due to their rather open ended nature.

For Example:
Paranoia - Target enemy immediately attacks a creature of your choice

Wild Lightning - Deal 1d12 damage to target enemy and 1d10 to another random enemy

With Paranoia, there were some issues of whether or not the target could be forced to attack itself. Wild Lightning was similar in that we found ourselves against one enemy and nobody was really sure if the 1d10 would still apply.

Some clarification would be greatly appreciated for situations like this and an idea of what to do if this issue arises again would be appreciated.

Sure thing. There's even a whole thread in the Official Game forum for these kind of questions.

1) Since Paranoia allows you to choose any creature, you can certainly choose for the creature to attack itself.

2) The word, "another" does indeed mean, "not the same" - so if you're against one enemy the extra 1d10 would fizzle (not do anything).
