Quote from: elgorade1) Assume the contest is unequal. One side has managed to work the situation such that they have a master over the other side. So, all other things being equal, they start with both an AP edge, and a skill combination which means they are likely to win rolls. Why isn't thier first action a huge AP bid meant to close out the contest in one round?
Quote from: elgorade2) Assuming the advantaged side doesn't go for the flashy one roll end of the contest, how do you handle the conservative approach. They can go for a series of low AP bids just trying to use the statistics of their advantage to get the win. But how do you make that interesting over the series of rolls? This seems especially likely to be a problem if it is the players using the conservative, atritional approach. They may well be right in an analysis that that is the way to win the contest, but it makes for a dull contest.
