I really did expect to die, right up to the very end, until Malak attacked Canderous. I thought that I would get two or three turns with my HP at 12 for that final battle. I figured Malak would have 40HP, but I didn't count on the higher damage. Once he killed T3, I was worried, because he had 10DMG. Once he attacked Canderous, I realized that he must have thought I was invincible, or at least too difficult to be worth the effort, and figured that I could take him out (IF he only had 40HP) because I would have at least one strike left if he brought me down to 2HP. This was, of course, based on the assumption that he had 10DMG as opposed to an insta-kill ability.


Actually, he had neither 10 damage nor an insta-kill. He had 5 damage, and two soldiers that did 2 damage each.

Malak's biggest strength was his HP, not his damage. He actually had only one more damage than the other villains, and in terms of dealing damage I was actually more powerful; Malak's strength was that he was a straight-up tank.

...Knowing that makes the final battle even cooler, because it was three on three, and we were basically counterparts. (Both of us had 10HP more than the other people on our sides.)

As it stands I'm really happy I used my lightsaber on my first move, since I was considering delaying it and that could have messed up.

Did Malak know how much it would help him to take the HP of the soldiers? Given what Ben said, I'm thinking that he couldn't have as he probably would have taken the 4 damage of the combined soldiers over the 2HP of killing them. Maybe I'm wrong.

1. Yes, he did know.
2. It was actually 10HP, but the heroes inflicted 8 damage that stage. So he only gained a net worth of 2 hp

I'm mildly upset that I didn't lose any health until the final battle so my power never had any use :evil: but other than that it was a super fun game! And scheming and such was also super fun :D

And sorry for attacking you, Cheerwine ;)

(I should have noticed that I was confused, and therefore realized that something I believed was wrong on some level.)

I should note:
1.That wasn't my RPM picture.
2.That wasn't my power. My power was that I could come back to life once(it was referred to as something along the lines of "I got lucky and managed to survive somehow. That's why when you asked me why I was still alive, I told you I got lucky and some Jawas saved me. :P :lol: ). When you tried to bluff me I instantly knew what you were doing because you were wrong. So I went along with it. :P :lol:

When your brother obliterates you on his 1st mafia game(and steals your blasters :evil: ), you have to focus on the little victories.

But it was still a picture of Calo Nord. The function served the same purpose.
And, even if some of my bluffs fell through, I still dealt your killing blow and obliterated you. :P
Also, your entire defense against the idea that you were biased against me was that I was getting too much information from you. If the information I was getting was based on false assumptions, then your entire defense falls through.

You were getting more information than just that. I noticed the bluffs, but the rest was accurate as far as I remember.

I should note that even though the heroes officially had to live to win, I personally consider the other Light Side Heroes to have won as well, and the Dark Side Heroes to have come in second, since there's no way any of us could have won alone, and especially not me. The Light Side Heroes did everything but stay alive, and the Dark Side Heroes still helped vanquish the villains.
