QuoteThe "She is currently" column should have Injured in the top box of the Fails section (or rather third one down overall) and Incapacitated in the one below that.Going through the final column, top to bottom, box by box, think of: (i) foe lying dead, trollbabe grimacing and blowing on a scrape, relationship character (who saved the day) spurting blood but going to live; (ii) foe lying dead, trollbabe spurting blood but going to live, relationship character (who saved the day) pumping his or her fist in the air; (iii) foe not dead, trollbabe spurting blood but going to live, relationship character lying dead; (iv) foe not dead, trollbabe lying unconscious in pool of blood, relationship character spurting blood but going to live, and in this case, the relevant point is that he or she is still mobile/active.

Quote from: James_Nostack on December 02, 2010, 09:19:16 PMHi Moreno! I understand that, for one NPC, you can imagine a social interaction where a friend gets killed. But it is hard to imagine a world where this could happen in any social interaction, at any time. I don't argue with people very often, but when I do, my friends don't usually die. Apparently that's not the case with Trollbabes...?
Quote from: PDF VersionRelationships can be damaging to the people involved. If a re-roll based on a relationship fails, no matter how the whole series turns out, the person in question will wind up at one "consequence" level worse than the trollbabe does, if he or she is physically present during the conflict.============Retta finishes a [social conflict] Series during which she used her relationship with Skalgar Hog's Son, in which she happened to fail at the "injured" level. He was present during the conflict, and thus he is incapacitated and may be considered unavailable for rerolls for some time, which may be specified by the player as part of his or her narration of the result of the Series.============This is how people with relationships to the main characters can die: when a trollbabe is incapacitated, and if any relationships were involved in the Series as re-rolls–and if those people were physically present or otherwise directly involved–then they die. Note that Skalgar Hog's Son, in the debate example, isnot at risk because he is not present in the conflict itself.
