Infinity N00b: G: Synchronized and Coordinated Order

I know it's been a while but here is some rules that came up in my last game I played.

I played Matt and his Tohaa.  I haven't played Matt for a long time.  It was so long, he was playing Morats and I was playing Ariadna.  Not an optimized list but a list that was made to play Wilson a week earlier.  Two things came up I wanted to post about.

G: Synchronized - Do you need to be withing 8"?
My antipode wasn't next to the Devil Dog.  Matt was wondering if you had to be withing 8".  No, you don't.  That simple.  Nothing in the rules I could find said you had to be within any distance.

Regnirok - from the comment (love the internet).

NOTE: It isn't in BRB but is in either HS or Campaign: Paradiso (I don't have electronic versions of those) but the wiki has it.  Should have looked there.  Keep forgetting.

While I can't get you a page number, this is from the official Wiki(which is copy/paste from the rulebook) on the Ghost: Synchronized page:

"The Remote must be always inside the Zone of Control of its Controller. The Synchronized Remote always disconnects automatically when is out of the Zone of Control, or if the Controller falls Unconscious or Dead. A disconnected Remote stands still and cannot receive Orders or perform AROs. An Immobilized (IMM) Marker must be placed beside the base of a disconnected Remote. The Remote connects automatically, without spending any Order or Short Skill, at the end of the Order in which it is once again inside the Zone of Control of its Controller, or at the end of an Order in which the Controller comes back from the Unconscious state."


That is where the 8" range on Synchronized comes from. Now, Ghost: Servant which is almost the same thing(applies to Engineering and Doctor helper remotes like Palbots) has no 8" range restriction on the two models.


Coordinated Order - Can I use an irregular order?
Matt wanted to spend an irregular order to perform a coordinated order.

Pg. 147 BRB - Declare a Coordinated Order, expending a Regular Order from the Order Pool as well. 

That's all I have more later.  I promise.

    2. Infinity is a game of constant learning, which is both a good thing as it keeps it interesting, and a frustrating thing when you find that you've been playing something wrong since N3 came out, like I had with Dogged. ;)
