When you use Return Fire (Ghillie's skill die #10) to roll attack dice instantly, can they only be used for damage, or can you put any bones you roll in your backup plan?

Does the description say you can't use the bones? I know it does for Picket's Shield Wall (Innate...)

Unless otherwise stated, only Bones rolled during your turn can be slotted in to the backup plan. So you wouldn't be able to keep the ones rolled with Return Fire.

I hate to ask, but is this an official answer?

I'm also interested in an official answer for this :-)

Best I can do in terms of official answer is back myself up with the rulebook. Storing Bones is part of resolving your roll. So outside of that step, you don't have the opportunity to do so.

Thanks, makes sense again :-)

I don't even have the game yet, but already read through the rulebook and every character sheet :-)

Enough with the uncertainty. folks. If you would have read through Ghillie's character sheet, you would have read that Return Fire says "Bones from Atk dice cannot be used in Backup Plan."

Consulting the written rule should have been the first response to this question. You're welcome.

That sounds like a change for the 3rd edition character sheet, as the 2nd edition doesn't provide that information, hence the original question. It's great that it's been clarified now.

Awesome! As said before, I don't have the game (3rd edition) yet and rely on rules/sheets that are online (wonder why they didn't put the latest version online though).
