Well, I am being mentally influenced by either amps or alien mind fuckery.
I think you overestimate your powers of self control.

Yttra has the right idea, even if I have no idea how to pronounce her name.
Something like "it-rah".

I'd recommend she change her action to specify staying low while fleeing.
She's not smart enough to flee sensibly >.>

Would it help? Smurf posted the action to shoot again before anyone else, so doesn't that mean his turn to shoot again comes before her turn saying to stay low?

Initiative tends to work on Dex rolls or physical proximity, not post order. At least, combat initiative does. I believe there have been times when three people have tried to open a door and he just sort of went in order, usually meaning taking the first action with invalidated the later two.

Dynamic Bonus: The act of spending a turn to prepare to perform an action. Gives a +1 or -1 or 0 on rolls of the type, depending on which will bring the roll closer to 5. If unused, it is lost at the end of the turn.

Dynamic bonus is a kinda confusing name; I'd expect it to be called "Preparation Bonus" or something. And I've seen people not post an action go to along with it, just "Charge Will" or something. Is it all accepted?

I'm sure i've seen people use this dynamic bonus without spending a turn preparing?

It's called dynamic because it changes. It can be -1 or +1 or 0.

You need to prepare to get it. Although sometimes piecewise gets confused if he doesn't have time or there are lots of people posting actions.
Don't try to confuse piecewise intentionally.

It used to be that you needed to state what you wanted to do and how you prepared for it to gain the bonus. It is still encouraged to do so, if possible, although simply saying "Charge XXX Bonus" will work.
Do not actually say XXX, because piecewise might take it literally.

EDIT: GWG, Pariah, you know where this will lead. So stop this. I don't care whose fault it is, just act like grown ups and stop this. Or take it to PMs if you can't.

Gotcha, the naming does make more sense now (not what I would have chosen but I understand it at least). Thanks folks!

@U_P and GWG: Just let it go.

Or, and just picture this for a second, you could both pack it in, or take it to PM.

Most of the time I go either by character proximity, who is effected most, or leave it till the end. In this case, I left his massacre till the end, and if he keeps shooting, it won't be rolled for until the end again.
