Tala 1 and General Cracken with Squadron Assignments...

Post by Xanth »

Can Tala 1:

Pull General Airen Cracken:

With Squadron Assignments:

?

Tala 1 references Colonel Cracken instead of General, but it's still the same persona; so I assume this works, but would like a verification. If it does not work, that's pretty weird, and would be the only example to my knowledge of a matching-pilot pull that only works on a specific version of a listed persona.

I am going to bring this up for a quick discussion with the Rules Committee.

Some weird guy asked a similar question last year about the Slave I that was kind of similar....you may remember.... ;)

So it would appear that we would need a very good reason to rule that one works but not the other.

It's much more exciting to me when you get a group of people who are coming up to you.....really really excited about it. And then there are other people who walk out literally saying that was the worst movie I've ever seen. Having those two extremes to me is the mark of the type of movie that I want to make.

We know that the design intent was that General Cracken would not match Tala 1, so even if we ruled otherwise, there is a good chance we would then try to fix the card or the rules to match design intent - they aren't supposed to match.

Team is still working on it.

The ruling hasn't changed, but I just wanted to let you know that the issue was discussed, design intent was looked at, and we have chosen to leave this as is, eg. General Airen Cracken is NOT a matching pilot for Tala 1.

Just wanted to add one more note on this.

Lieutenant Page refers to "Cracken" and Tala 1 refers to "Colonel Cracken". Based on this it is determined that "Cracken" is the official persona name, and Tala 1's text is talking specifically about the card Colonel Cracken.

Therefore, if you do manage to get General Cracken piloting Tala 1, it will not trigger the immunity to attrition < 4 in Tala 1's game text, because Tala 1 specifically requires Colonel Cracken to gain that immunity.

But if you put General Cracken with Lieutenant Page, it WILL trigger Page to add 1 to your battle destiny draws, because Page is looking for any version of the Cracken persona.
