Long ago, four nations fought for control over the Dancefloor Battlefield. The precisely ordered armies of the Pirouette Kingdom clashed with the fiery Republic of Castanet, the pious Disco Theocracy and the agents of the United Swing States. That is, until the duet invasion of the Krumpgoblin Horde and the Nae-Naecromancer forces the four armies to work together and repel the interlopers!A SkrimJam Skirmish game >>5255912Prompts: Dance Commander

>>5257375It's (almost) Friday night. Let's dance~https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZiZwH6ABU8
What constitutes a dance combo? Landing hits without spending Move? Without taking damage?Are actions processed sequentially or simultaneously? For example, if I wanted to try to charge my Swing Squaddie's passive, could I dodgedance through an attack already declared by a friendly, or would I have to declare first and let the friendly hit my tiles?Can players share a space, or are there collision rules?
Let's groove tonight, share the spice of life~
>>5257375Unbelievable! Could you imagine the step?
>>5257375Let us remove the Krumpgoblins and Nae-Naecromancers from our stage. Hideous things lacking in both rhythm and grace.I'm willing to bet their "dances" are little better than the flailings of infants.
>>5257432Dance combos are chains of Dances without spending Moves, you don't have to hit.Actions are processed in the order they're submitted, to make it easier on the processing.Players can't share space, if a player moves into a space occupied by another player, an enemy, or an NPC, both take 1/2 heart damage - unless if they're armored, in which case the armored unit takes no damage. The player which moved will be placed into an adjacent square to the stationary one, closest from the mover's starting position.(That means if player A starts somewhere north from player B and collides with B, A is going to be placed directly north of B)

The joint forces descend on the first goblin they see! Which, due to abysmal rolls and poor judgement of location, results in not a single attack landing on the goblin! The only damage was from Swaydolf Twistler and Celerity colliding, each taking a half heart of damage! At least they found where the trenches of Tango Cliffs are!On the eastern flank, Dandy Shift and Cygna Lesde Vision rushes bravely into the fog, and both collided with the same goblin that was previously skulking near the trenches! They take half a heart of damage each, but at least they can claim the first kill of the mission!To the West, things are calmer as Stylish Sal tries to identify the lucky goblin that was the focus of the attacks - but it is way out of Sal's vision range!Oh dear, thus concludes the first player phase, with a kerfluffle and an accidental kill.ENEMY PHASE, PROCESSING.

THE ENEMY MAKES THEIR MOVE!The lucky goblin from earlier initially expressed confusion at surviving such an onslaught of attacks, but then saw a chance to counter-attack! It sidles up close to Friday Knight, and works up a krumpin'! Fortunately, it looks like it's just flailing around aimlessly, missing its attack.Another goblin climbed the ladder out of the trenches, only to be utterly confused at the number of enemies it encounters! It stopped mid-move to assess its options."Oh no, they killed Gobman! I'll avenge youuu!" Said a third goblin standing near the slain goblin to the east. It launches a krump attack at Risch O. Rayne... which completely missed as well.A fourth goblin to the west scouts ahead, and became alerted to Stylish Sal's presence!

As if to make up for their poor performance last turn, the joint forces scores an impressive 5 kills against the goblins!To the west, both Flammencos descend upon the distracted goblin, but it was Saria that dealt the scorching blow!

Another kerfluffle, this time on the west flank! Viva tries to bulldoze her way south, but bumped into Saria instead, interrupting Viva's Desgarro and resulting in both receiving half damage! Stylish Sal tries to style on the visible goblin, misses on the first pass - but she comes around and dispatches the goblin with a crit! Which, sadly, also hit Saria as she makes her way south, leaving Saria hanging on by a half heart!In the middle, the Disconauts venture bravely into the fog, accompanied by Celerity! A couple more goblins spotted!White Swan stood stock still and stayed silent - could it be that she's having doubts?On the eastern flank, Swaydolf rushes back into the front after healing themselves, as Cygna dispatches one of the tic tac tie goblin. Dandy Shift also tries to attack the same goblin, which missed the first time - but deftly dodged Cygna. Alas, Dandy tried looping back, which resulted in a collision!Two more goblins fell, and it seems they're starting to be thinned out!

The battle continues! On the western flank, Stylish Sal does another dance loop around the running goblin, killing it! Saria retreats, as Viva advances towards the middle, past White Swan, who is... having tea on the battlefield?Towards the middle, it seems that Celerity is standing still too. Is it tea time in the Pirouette Kingdom already? Anyways, Friday Knight hip checks a goblin against the trench wall, and that's a kill! As he proceeds up and out of the trenches, he sees a goblin preparing sandwiches, and Swaydolf trying to interrupt the tic tac toe goblin - which, fortunately for both the boardgame and the goblin, Swaydolf reflexively dodged the board and missed her attacks.Meanwhile, Risch O Rayne boogies in the trenches, passing through his own attack.On the east, Cygna dispatches another goblin, despite Dandy Shift bumping into her after finishing the tic tac toe game and interrogating a goblin.

I HAD no idea how I bumped into you despite A) not hitting the same square as you. B) Ending in the same square as you. C) Doing any dance that would cross with you. I think how bumps work is that if you do any moves that have Blue steps in it you persist in the tiles moved with Blue thus the point of people DODGING in their Dance moves through friendly tiles crossed. Is this correct Indo? >>5263084 if so I think we can work in tandem better now.)

To the west, Stylish Sal swooces between the cliff and the arguing goblins successfully.Vida is fired up! At least literally for a brief moment when she stepped on the burning goblin corpse.At the rear lines, Saria practices her steps while getting much-needed medicine, while it seems like White Swan is dozing off.

Swaydolf gains 1 HP because of this... which she promptly lost, blundering into Risch O Rayne's attack. At least she'll heal next turn and dispatched the hungry goblin.Meanwhile, to the east, Risch fails to attack the hungry goblin but hits its killer instead, Cygna Lesde Vision descends into the trenches once more, and Dandy Shift inspects a poor quality sandbag barricade before bumping into Cygna.NPC AND ENEMY PHASE, PROCESSING

>>5265609Yes, indeed. Especially so.Also double-replied because somehow the first reply didn't get loaded when I refreshed, weird.

>>5265608>>5265611(Not sure I agree with that, chief. I feel like the most that should happen is a bump if the person colliding acts first. (i.e. if friday knight were to move west prior to celerity posting/moving it'd be a bump, but if celerity posted/moved first then it wouldn't))
>>5265616(Forgot my name. Eh.)

>>5269778Not only 2 dances a turn, but also if you did a dance as a last action on the turn before and another dance the first thing you do this turn.Oh, and by my count, you have 0 RPs atm.
>>5269754Friday lies on the floor, feeling unconsciousness about to take him. It wasn't enough. If he had just a little bit more strength in him, maybe he could have defeated the Krumpmmander. But he missed a crucial bump, and now he's in this sorry state, felled by a devastating blow. As he begins to rise into the big disco ball in the sky, he takes solace in the fact that he's wounded the Goblin enough for his comrades to slay it easily. That's enough for him.Suddenly, he hears a voice that snaps him back to reality. With great willpower, he turns away from his eternal rest and tries his best to respond. Though he can't muster up words in his tired state, the Disconaut reaches a hand out to accept the aid, managing to regain some strength thanks to his ally. ((Reviving means I can only act next round, right?))

>>5269907Yep, you can only do stuff 1 turn after being revived.>>5270399Which means SS3 can't do anything yet.
>>5269893So Balleteers simply won't generate as much rhythm as the other classes, then? Only one action a turn, so they can't get one for two dances in the same turn - and the single Balleteer attack requires a precise lineup to accomplish, so even it the last phase was ended with a dance it's unlikely you'll be breaking into another without a step or two of positioning first....Which I understand from class intent I guess, a Balleteer is more about Poise then Rythmn.
>>5270906Yeah, more or less - it's still possible to acquire RP from other methods, such as Role Playing (aka be stoic and graceful for Balleteers, etc.)
>>5270907A final flurry of activity at the beachside!"Hang on, Friday! I'll avenge you!""Come to me, my gobl- wait, what are you doing?! Stop! Stop!! ACK!"Viva, furious at the Krumpmmander for knocking Friday out, bullrushes onto the Krumpmmander with no regard for her life! The resulting collision knocked Viva out, and serves as a kamikaze vengeance for Friday! Sal dispatches another goblin as she, too, tries to finish the Krumpmmander, but alas, she missed!In the trenches, Risch revives Dandy and heals Swaydolf.To the west, Celerity tries to end the goblin chasing Sal, but misses!To the east, Cygna's third time attacking the flower goblin is the charm, and the goblin dies to no fanfare!Saria manages to reach the front, but by the time she got there, the battle was over.White Swan dozes off peacefully. Wonder if she'll get mad if we just leave her here, then?
And thus the first ever joint forces mission concludes! The goblins surrender immediately once they realize the Krumpmmander is gone, and the Tango Cliffs are ours once more!24/29 goblins killed1 goblin surrendered via dialogue1 goblin went AWOL3 end of round goblin surrender5 joint forces knockout events3 revivesThank you for playing!
WOOO! Good game, fellas. Was a joy playing with everyone.
Also, funny thing, someone on the skirmish discord server had a dream about a Flammenco girl in a simple civilian dress posing in front of a mirror.That's quite something, to appear in a dream like that.
GG everyone!Lovely art as usual, IndoGent!
https://youtu.be/iSBBsUld8zMGood! Good! Good work to all! I really thought that I had some more blood in me for that final bomber rush. My condolences to Friday Knight; my heroism was larger than my head!A few closing questions:1. What happens to the USS Intel I was lugging about?2. When ought we to expect the next mission (roughly)?
>>5270953Thank you for running!Will there be another mission soon upon the Battlefield Dancefloor?
>>5271035The USS intel was safely retrieved, along with the two knocked-out operatives. High command of the USS thanks you for its discreet retrieval, and the Republic of Castanets thanks you for the diplomatic leverage. What's inside? Rumor has trickled down, there were supposedly scandalous beach pictures inside... but who really knows?As this was done on a whim as a skrimjam entry, and wasn't really planned out besides the first mission... well, I'll run it again in the future when my schedule aligns. To be honest, running a skirmish while getting a commission is quite taxing. And next up in my questing queue is running Gaol Quest's last thread, then starting up Fall of the Regime. But yeah, keep an eye out, I might be struck by temporary madness and run this again :B
>>5270953Thanks for running.
>>5270953Thanks for running, QM.
