Post subject:  Decoy against multiple attacks

This came up last Saturday at Dragon*Con. When making multiple attacks with Double/Triple/Extra/etc. (not Twin), you are targeting multiple times, correct? Even if you're shooting at the same character?

The specific case involved Leia Skywalker getting shot at with Double Attack, taking the first one and then Winter swapping in with the second one. Since Decoy can be activated any time Leia is targeted, it can happen between attacks in a Double (or Triple or whatever), correct? That makes sense to me, and there is also the precedent that you have to roll Bombad Gungan for each of these attacks, also.

Yes, of course it can. This was actually the question that caused controversy?

To be clear, this is exactly what it was intended to do on her.

Controversy is too strong of a word. It was my fault for not paying more attention to this piece.

Ok gotcha. This was one of the reasons she began with only one attack, and originally could not work decoy for that Leia. PT desired it to be changed, so she got some shifts. It works the way I want it to, and it's supposed to be as strong of a combo as Dash/Jagged in the NR.

The PT stats I saw would not have given her Protective for Leia Skywalker, but she could Decoy for her. So on that version, the single attack was very meh.

In the final version, I understood the Decoy ability just as it works, so I was perplexed over what the "issue" was. :lol:

Definitely strong. 8-)
