1209RE: [ukpbm] Re: the "Badly Written" rule
- Oct 3, 2003Misordering deliberately is difficult under such rules, I agree; but as long as the order is completely ambiguous or clearly impossible, then it is a misorder. The best option is to order the unit twice, ordering a different action each time - a more plausible misorder.
However, I don't think many players are fooled by deliberate misorders anyway, so I think the practice of using misorders is crude and largely counter-productive.

said what the GM will or won't do should be laid down in the HR, but I don't
think that we should put any rule in that makes deliberate misorders
impossible or obvious ...
