After watching a couple videos featuring Nugget I'm a little confused about her Longblade skill. Can it be used as a ranged attack? If so, does it require a Slingstone to use?

Really enjoying learning about this game. Can't wait for my copy!

it's ranged on its own.

The slingstones allow you to use a regular Attack Die as a ranged attack.

Ok, cool.

I love the image of her flinging her sword at a Baddie. In fact, every character's skills in this game are immersive. Though, come to think of it, how does she get her sword back once she's thrown it? Must be awkward as she's picking it up at the feet of an angry Baddie.

Regarding Nugget's Longblade: There is Gearloc tech at work here... Something unknown to us. We'll let you speculate

Or maybe it's like a boomerang blade. Or a magnetic pulse . Or mechanical wings . Maybe it collapses into an orb and rolls back! Or maybe, just maybe, it's string after all ....

Carmine Petrie stands before you, wearing some ridiculous disguise. One has to wonder how on earth anything concocted by this man ever worked to fool anyone...

Adam, step away from the forums and get back to sorting those beautiful boxes out.

Perhaps, like Grog on Critical Role, she has a Chain of Returning...

I like this idea.

Like the Bazooka on my Rambo toy as a kid, just pull back and release to shoot... only goes as far as the string.

On Nuggets' character sheet the longblade skill is listed as short range.
What is the difference between ranged and short range?

In the Nugget Overview on Youtube, at 23:52 he says that the Longblade can be used against adjacent (and target) enemies only.

Also, at 26:20 he says "the Longblade cannot reach (the non-adjacent baddie). The Longblade is for adjacent only".

Marcus, thanks for pointing that out. I misspoke as this was an earlier proposed design for this character. It had been revised and I had forgotten! So much to remember and say! Even the earliest renditions of these Gearlocs are burned on my brain!

We will add notes to the video soon. You are to follow the text of the Ref Sheet.

If a ranged Target is selected, then Longblade works on that target as well (not Atk Dice). You will notice the icon on the Longblade dice does not restrict you to adjacent targets. There are other Skills that Nugget has that may apply to 'Target' as well. Use these wisely as you can only do so much to non-adjacent Targets, then you will have to approach Baddies if you want to dish out some real Dmg!

That is excellent news! Thank you for the clarification!

Also, I loved the videos and have watched them multiple times. Good job on those as well.
