I think the result is blue +1 and red +5 as written in the rules.
Ransen so no modifier for terrain, no modifier for units and no firearms prepared.
+1 for Naomasa.
Ransen, so mass and elan of attackers and defender (+0 +3 for the first attacker, +2 +3 for the other attacker and -1 -2 for the defender).
+3+5-3 = +5.
How do you obtain +1 +4 ?
Thanks for clarifying. I was reading it wrong and adding mass and adding elan separately. I didn’t quite pick up how to apply the combat types modifiers.
I think I see it now:
Blue die - no modifiers for Ransen for attacker and none for defender except firepower if firearms prepared (the defender is not) +1 for the allocated leadership of li naomasa
Red die - elan = 0 + 2, mass = 3 + 3, total 8 modified by defenders elan -1 and mass -2, total -3: 8-3 = +5 on the red die.
Thanks so much for helping me understand it. Thanks for replying so quickly and supporting the game with responses to rules questions. I hope you are planning to do more in this series or with the system as it seems very interesting.
