edit: I looked it up and no, fall mechanics are not limited to crossing zone boundaries. Getting knocked off a wall counts as a Fall. Would be interesting if one the reasons the attack (possibly) fails is that too many basic infantry lose some hit points jumping into the courtyard, especially considering how Parson used the fall mechanics a few in-game moments ago

There must be some hidden parameters to incur the fall mechanic

I mean it's nice that we're seeing all these varying perspectives on a partially destroyed castle, it's really quite impressive creatively. She's got a good sense of space and scale, and how to present it. But it will be better once this campaign is finally over, and we get back to casual discussions and small scenes.

The problem is, we know Parson goes through the portal. Multiple predictimancers have predicted it.twhitt wrote:Isn't the obvious change in Jojo's position a pretty strong indication that there's something wrong? It could be some sort of bluff, and it'd be reasonable for Parson to expect a bluff from a carnymancer, but Jojo's sudden willingness to see Parson go through the portal should be evidence enough to Parson that there's some ulterior motive. I forget; has Parson voiced any suspicion that Jojo's thrown in with his known enemies?
If he believes that Jojo is a rogue agent, acting of his own volition, then there's almost no way to account for his recent change of tune. But if Parson suspects that Jojo is somehow conspiring with one of his enemies, then this change of tune would indicate that it's not in fact very wise for Parson to proceed. If it is indeed what Jojo wants, it might be very bad indeed for Parson, and he should realize that.
Unless he was lying earlier, Jack is out of juice. He used the last of it to get Wanda and himself to Parson (I still don't understand why.)teratorn wrote:I see «Wanda,» but where are Jack and Sizemore? Everyone is concentrating so much on Parson that a bit of foolamancy should have been possible.

There's gotta be a good joke in here somewhere.

It is as you said: A jump is not a fall. So long as it does not cross a zone, it is a controlled motion without danger.Werebiscuit wrote:There must be some hidden parameters to incur the fall mechanic
That's a good question, and one which would make sense of the otherwise nonsense maneuverings around the capitol change. If the portal doesn't move when the portal room in the capitol changes, then who cares when Parson goes through? He'll either be the sole GK unit in the new JS capitol, and either captured or killed in short order by the portal chamber guards, or he'll be in Spacerock where Charlie seems to have concocted some scheme with the soon to be dead Slately clone to kill Parson. So, where's the drama? In either case Parson is seemingly screwed.Morni wrote:I beleive this is an unknown, are the portal location base on sites, or on sides? aka would switching capital from site a to site b.. change the portal location.

You can croak from a three foot fall.
So if you get dismounted, it's a fall. Knocked off a tower or a wall? Fall. Your flying mount is shot out from under you? Fall.
