Re: (TFT) Standing up... movement or action?
I would like to add that in the earlier Microquest versions of Melee
and Wizards standing up took place during movement. Those rules are
very specific on this point. When the Advanced rules came out I
suspect that many of us who started playing TFT with the earlier rules
never noticed the subtle shift which now seemed to place standing up
during the action phase according to DX. The dilemma is simple, which
set of rules do you believe is correct? A. the Advanced rules because
they are the "newest", better play-tested and corrected version or B.
the Microquest rules believing, as I do, that the Advanced rules were
rushed to print (as SJ has said) and small errors in the game
mechanics due to the way they were worded crept in. My gut feeling is,
that in their effort to clean up the wording and presentation of the
options, the standing during movement rule was misplaced, cut
unintentionally or they simple forgot to include it.
The Microquest games went through (correct me if I'm wrong) 4
revisions. If they were to change this rule I would suspect it would
have happened during one of these editions. I'll assume they were play-
testing the game as they went and saw no real reason to alter the
standing up during movement rule. The Advance Rules had no revised
editions, and if it had, I suspect that the standing rule would have
been clarified back to the way it originally was.
Now don't jump on me, I know this is pure speculation. But in my
opinion the game flows and plays better when you leave standing up as
it was originally written, firmly in the movement portion of the turn.
