Roko Joko Posted July 24, 2017 Report Share Posted July 24, 2017 (edited) Picking up a HQ tangent from https://basicroleplaying.org/topic/6513-traversing-the-lunar-heartland/. Darius West: "If you are using HQ... a Lunar can cast as many spells as they like without consequence." "in HQ by comparison you have to rely on GM fiat to say, "you can't keep casting the spell because I say so"." David Scott: "HeroQuest doesn't actually limit repeat actions, except augments." As Tim Ellis said in the other thread, no. First of all, NPCs don't have abilities. If you want to use a contest, it's a player contest to evade the Lunar magic. But if they did, or if a player wants to use magic repeatedly, "No Repeat Attempts A contest represents all of your attempts to overcome an obstacle. If you are defeated it means that no matter how many times you tried to solve the problem with your ability, you finally had to give up. You can try again only if you apply a new ability to the task or your Game Master agrees that special circumstances exist."
