Re: (TFT) Do certain actions delay your turn? (regarding adjDX)

On the wiki page at
http://tft.brainiac.com/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Rules.DXadjustments, I suggested
looking at DX adjustments as either "general" (for determining action order)
or "targeting" (for affecting to-hit). Here's how I'd rule each of the
points below:

Purely targeting - doesn't affect action order.

2)  Missile or thrown weapons at long ranges.

Purely targeting. Action order shouldn't change because you're throwing or
firing a weapon further.

I would rule that +3 for missile would be targeting adjustment. Waiting a
turn might go either way, but I tend to think it's targeting. Spells that
increase your DX would be general adjustment (and thus affect action order),
since magic (aid) really makes you more dexterous.

Again, I'd rule that you wouldn't act later, but that your hits are less
likely - targeting adjustment.

I'd rule that it's targeting adjustment. However, multiple missile shots are
a special case (doesn't the second shot come at the end of the round in
Advanced Melee?)
