Roaming Wolfpack, Plaza of Punishment, and Astapor

- - - - -

Best Answer mplain , 19 March 2018 - 07:05 PM

Roaming Wolfpack's ability is a conditional constant ability (not a lasting effect, those are only created by triggering abilities).
 
Your question basically hinges on whether Roaming Wolfpack ceases to be attacking before the end of the challenge, or if these two things are simultaneous.
 

4.2.6 Challenge ends
This step formalizes the end of the challenge. All characters that were participating in the challenge are no longer participating. Proceed to the action window between framework steps 4.1 and 4.2.

 

RRG says here that the end of the challenge and the expiration of the "participating" status are simultaneous.

 

So the Roaming Wolfpack will live.

The Roaming Wolfpack has been hit by the Plaza of punishment, bringing it to 4 STR.

 

RW attacks, and gains its While Attacking RW gains +2 STR, bringing it to 6 STR.

The RW gets hit by Astapor for -4, bringing it to 2 STR.

The challenge ends. What happens? 

 

The way I've read, the effect on RW is a lasting effect which remains in effect "until the end" of the challenge.

Astapor lasts until the end of the challenge.

 

Can these expire simultaneously, or does one have to expire first?

 

 

Thanks,

Notably this is different from L5R, where "characters stop participating" and "conflict ends" are two separate steps.
