    A quick question about Marked + Hannibal's Pointman skill.

    Pointman adds Orange dice to the enemy within Hannibal's sight, and Marked makes the action no need for LOS.

    Does this mean If the target is marked, and our Parvati wants to shoot the enemy behind the red wall, the orange dice is added to the roll if Hannibal got the sight against the victim?

    If able, I will be super HYPED.

    I'm afraid not. :J:Marked State lets you select a Target with no need of LoS but it doesn't give LoS to the Target. And Hannibal needs to use LoS, so in that case, Parvati cannot gain Pointman bonus.

    In this case, Parvati cannot add orange dice, right?

    I misread, I'm terrible sorry! :sweat:

    In that case, Parvati gains the bonus, because Hannibal has LoS to Mushashi, which is the only requirement to apply Pointman. Parvati can perform her Attack against Mushashi with an extra :,: and Mushashi will not be able to use his :2:'cos he doesn't have LoS to his Attacker -Parvati-.

    Awesome.

    And thank you for your fast response - I think your efforts are the main reason why Aristeia! got almost zero rule arguments.

    I am the only one regretting that Smoke and Mirror completely negated Hannibal potential to add orange dice?
    Kosmo is an almost insta include in all games where I live.
    I had some hope that Marked would make Hannibal a potent damage dealer again.

    I don't think Hannibal lost that much potential with Smoke and Mirrors. Sure it might be harder to get that extra orange dice, but he synergizes with everyone in that expansion.

    The strong point of Hannibal is Programmed Strategy and his powerful Tactics, over Pointman.

    Smoke and Mirrors counters him but he still offers synergies like letting Kozmo shoot his Contender through Smoke with an additional :,:

    As Smoke is removed at the beggining of Kozmo/Taowu Activation, you can press with Hannibal and try to control your opponent's Running Order similar way as you pin a chess figure threatening with a check mate.

    :wink:
