5 horses, 2 guards, the fancy armor, a longsword, a rondel, medical supplies, some cash, and request a map of the area if available. The plan will be to enter there alone on horseback, the guards will be waiting close by guarding the four horses.

That's an Intimidation attempt. :)

social+manipulation (intimidation)
5d10 => 6, 7, 7, 6, 10 => 36

possible explosions
2d10 => 10, 10 => 20

EDIT: Wow :shock:

more possible explosions
2d10 => 8, 8 => 16

I wasn't even going to ask for rolls, looking at the situation. But OK, now I'll just add something extra as a reward.
Anyway, am I surprised by the result? Not very much. Even though you moved from rolling about as many successes as you had dice, to rolling more than 150% of dice rolled in successes as a result. Cool. Just remember the dice gods will eventually turn away from you and looking at how high you're now, it's gonna be a pretty painful fall. A crippled peasant lady will beat your ass. Or something.

Neither am I surprised. I usually beat the crap out of insignificant rolls, while I screw badly critical ones. Btw, didn't you pull something similar in roll20 the other day? :)

Anyway, I hope I won't run into this while hunting for food. :lol:

And do you know what else the witch says?

- A great success awaits you in future! I can see your name on some very strange kettles, boiling water inside, and powered by magical energy!

I've been thinking about using this 3D model of a castle by Shad Brooks:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBn7f3H-eqM
This way we make sure we use cohorent terminology. And we have a very clear vision on how this castle looks like, where are the specific parts located - may be useful during planning phase, skirmishes, and such.
How do you like this idea?
I'd say that this thing next to the keep is barracks. And there, along the wall, we'd add more necessary buildings... like stables, smithy, small market, and so.

The guard resists with his Willpower and Trade (Guard duties).

6d10 => 9, 9, 9, 4, 2, 1 => 34


expl?
3d10 => 2, 3, 5 => 10


The Obstacle would be THREE.

Ok, my Social is 2. Manipulation (exp: Intimidate) is 2 ; 3 with Expertise. Don't think I can add synergy from Command (exp: Military) because its rank 2. Don't think any SA fires.

5d10 vs TN6
5d10 => 4, 4, 10, 7, 2 => 27

Possible Explosions
2d10 => 4, 1 => 5

Well I wanted to give you this one additional dice, houseruling that Warfare expertise should help you... and even allowing the SA to fire... but it wouldn't change a thing! No 5s in your results, and both addtional (under "possible explosions") dice were failures. Looks like you were doomed to fail! MoF - 1. Minor Complication.

In that case it'd be 6d10, not 5d10. Social 2 + Manipulate 2 + Intimidate 1 = 5d10. So, you want me to roll another d10?

I'll just take the result from here:

As if it were this 6th dice, resulting in 1.
Come on, complications are not that bad, should be fun :twisted:

No problem with that. Post his reaction, and better log into roll20 too. After all Ruthard is good with swords, not words. :lol:

Oh that would be suicide. No fighting this time, unless you insist :D
Just tell me if you give him the message or not.

Ok, Ruthard scans the area as to anything useful. Btw, what's the Ob for lifting that portcullis? 10?
