Re: Dwarf Rules and Query


Well Paul, I'm glad you asked that question.
I quote from the FAQ available at the Museum amongst other places.
quote:


Q: When using his Great Axe, the Dwarf rolls two dice for damage and discards the lowest. How is this handled when he goes up in level and his damage dice increases?
A: Whatever his Damage Dice is, when the Dwarf is using the Great Axe, he rolls one additional die. From the resulting number of dice rolled the lowest is removed. See note on Dwarf Battle Level table RPB p. 44.

Q: When using his Great Axe, the Dwarf rolls two dice for damage and if they are doubles (not double ones) he adds them together rather than taking the lower of the two away. If he gets a double one he trips over his beard. How are these results determined when he goes up in level and his damage dice increases?
A: The Dwarf continues to roll damage dice (whether one or more) and an extra dice for the axe. From all of these dice he discards the lowest unless there are two ones in which case he trips over or unless there is a double, in which case he adds up all of the dice for damage. (GWUK)

For example a Dwarf of battle-level 9 or 10 rolls the following: D. DICE AXE RESULT
 4 3 1 + 1 = A double one. The Dwarf trips over.
 4 3 1 + 2 = The Dwarf discards the lowest (1). Total damage is 9 + Strength.
 4 4 3 + 1 = A double. He adds up all of the dice. Total damage is 12 + Strength.
 5 5 1 + 1 = The Dwarf trips over.

ahh this is excellent - thanks peter i now understand... (unfortunately my main boardgame Dwarf never reached a high-enough BL for me to try, but you never know - that Rhyme-Slinging online version of mine might just yet do it) :P

I have to say, I never had a problem with that double 1. The first thing I try with a Dwarf is to get that rune to allow you to re-roll the lowest score on your damage dice, thus eliminating a double 1. If you roll another 1 after that, you deserve to fall flat on your face.

Re: Dwarf Rules and Query


This question seems to pop up every so many months. Someone even calculated how much more likely a higher level dwarf would be to trip himself up.
I use different colour dice to solve this problem. Only when the two red dice(all other dice are white) come up with a one, does the fumble.
This was probably also the suggestion made by the Great Calculator.
