    Thurirl: ((I don’t think I can finish my plans this round, so I’ll wait))
    GauntMenace: ((so with environmental mods, including your movement half-penalty, you have a 29 vs his 22 to move as far as you want to, even up to right next to him. Next round, you will have to roll again.))
    GauntMenace: ((But you can wait if that fits your plan best))
    Thurirl: ((I don’t need to get closer to teach this lesson… but I need a Stance, and not sure I can do that on top of the move))
