Multiple Bolts and Backlash

#1 Postby Lysander » Thu Sep 22, 2011 7:32 pm

Situation came up last night as follows:

(Fantasy Setting, AB: Magic). Bad guy Wizard (Wild Card) wants to throw 3 bolt spells at 3 separate heroes (A, B, C).

She rolls the following: 1, 1, 7, Wild Die 4. No cover or lighting penalties, just straight up Spellcasting w/ no modifiers and no Wild Card or GM Bennies left.

What is the best result of this event (from the perspective of Evil Wizard) as it relates to Hero A B C and the Evil Wizard herself and the backlash rules?

Two bolts hit (the 7 and 4 result) whichever of the three targets the Evil Wizard chooses from A, B, or C, and the damage is rolled for those and handled normally.

Meanwhile, the Evil Wizard is Shaken from Backlash by the first 1 on the Spellcasting die and suffers a wound from Backlash for the second 1 on a Spellcasting die.
