    Greetings, in a recent-ish tournament i had a dispute with my opponent which we couldn't quite dissolve, but had little enough impact so that my opponent didn't stand firm on the topic but wanted to have confirmation of the great interwebz afterwards.

    I'll try to be as neutral as i can, thought i am biased towards my interpretation of course.

    So here goes:
    Situation was as follows: Shona in Range 2 attacks Mushashi who is adjacent to an enemy Laxmee.
    Shona obliterates Mushashi in that attack and there is nothing he can do to prevent it or kill shona as well.
    So my opponent declares his switch "I use my shields to inflict 2 Damage to Laxmee".

    My argument was this is impossible since Mushashis general trigger reads ":1:: Add :2: to your Roll against and adjacent Target." and since there was no roll made against Laxmee only against Shona who was too far away, he simply couldn't use the switch.

    He seemed to be under the impression he could put those into a virtual "roll" against the adjacent target which would have to simply suffer the :2: with no roll.

    Which one is right what does the Interwebz think?

    You were right. This is because :2: are just successes, and don’t automatically inflict :4:. They only inflict :4: during a Combat Roll and a Combat Roll wasn’t being made against Laxmee.

    ":1:: Add :2: to your Roll against and adjacent Target." and the only Target for Miyamoto is Shona:
