View Full Version : Thorek and the Pendant of Vengance...

How does Thorek and the High Elf Pendant of Vengance interact. Both force rerolls of the Anvil for various reasons. So the following scenarios would then be valid:

a) Thorek Rerolls and succeeds. Elf forces a reroll and Thorek is then rerolling the success again that Kraggi can't help with.
b) Thorek succeeds on his own. Elf forces reroll the Thorek can treat as a fail and reroll to succeed.

How also would that interact with Thorek taking a negative for the anvil roll for both Kraggi and the Pendant? I would think they would be exclusive to which ever caused the failure, but I'm sure weird things could arise somehow.

As you can never re-roll a re-roll it would be a case of either

a) Initial striking is successful, the pendant then forces a reroll
b) Initial striking is unsuccessful, Thorek can then use his Kraggi reroll to make it successful.

If the Kraggi reroll comes up as a 1 I think Thorek might be in trouble as the -1 from Kraggi and the -1 from the pendant on the failed rune table are most likely cumalative giving a high chance of the anvil going boom.

The wording of the pendant seems to suggest its presence on the battlefield means any failed rune roll is always -1 no matter whether the reroll caused the failure or not.

You may never re-roll more than once but you can be forced to re-roll a success by your oponent.

Once you have passed on your ability to re-roll (because you got a successful roll) you can not have a do-over if your opponent forces you to re-roll successes.

1. Make initial rolls
2. Make own re-rolls if necessary
3. Make forced re-rolls of any successes if necessary.

Exactly. Hatred against Armour of Damnation springs to mind.

Stupid FAQ precedent. They should have stuck with their own rules, which are very simple:

You don't re-roll a re-roll. If you're in a situation where you re-roll successes and failures, then you re-roll your successes and your failures - so pick up all the dice and roll them again. At that point you're done, since all the dice have already been re-rolled, none of them can be re-rolled again.

Not the first time a Q&A has got the answer wrong.

basically throw the dice pick them up and throw them again.

I had something similar the other day I could reroll failed armour saves and he had a item that forced me to reroll successfull armor saves. so we threw the dice picked them up and did them again
