Mind Trick and Coordinated Fire


Recommended Posts

Follow-up clarifying question about Coordinated Fire! We’ve been playing that Coordinated Fire takes place at the start of step 5 “Before Dice are rolled”, meaning that things that take place earlier, (like Mind Trick in step 3b) can effect if Coordinated Fire can trigger.

We’ve been doing it that way because of our interpretation of the forum post on Mind Trick and Coordinated Fire timing and our interpretation of the post on Mind Trick vs (other effects) but I saw in this post that Coordinated Fire might actually take place in step 3 and wanted to confirm our earlier readings!

I think my specific question ends up being “Regardless of the timing does Mind Trick’s activation still prevent Coordinated Fire?” (Obi2 and I both hope so) coupled with the more general clarifying question, “What step do actions that trigger off of an attack that is part of a combat action ‘before dice are rolled’ trigger in?”

Sorry for the wall of text and thanks!

Your earlier understanding was correct, the linked post does not change anything about the related timings. Coordinated Fire is used the start of step 5.

It will prevent coordinated fire being used against that specific attack, yes.
