Musicians range

Recommended Posts

Does a unit have to be in coheasion to get the effects of a musician? Seems like they should but I can't find anything in the rules. What if the Musician is out of coheasion?

I'm sure that would make the Orc "Americian Idol" an interesting, if rather short show.

 

Anyway, I play against many Dwarf players and a few of the guys I play like to split thier units to take advantage of cover.

No. A musicians bonus applies even if the musician is on the other side of the playing table as the rest of the troop.

Perhaps in Taltos, the word "musician" is interchangeable with "fitness trainer"?

 

Seriously, however, the purpose of a musician on the battlefield is to coordinate movement. It doesn't make you *actually* faster, it makes you *effectively* faster by removing the slight delay inherrent in determining the right time to move. Dwarves, for example, base a lot of their mobility training on the non-verbal commands, so are a lot slower to react when they have to wait for the voice commands.

 

Now, that's just my personal take on it. Bottom line is that it is just fluff. They had to come up with a key word for the effect, and settled on "Musician" by popular tradition. You could just as easily call the upgrade "movement coordinator" and get the same effect - so don't let your imagination get limited by the phrase, nor get wrapped around the axle about the details.

Actually Dwarven musicians prefer the term Enhanced Movement Technicians ::P:
