Thanks again DA.

Any chance that can be backed up with a rule?  I only ask because if it gets brought up again I'd like to be able to show it to them in writing somewhere.  And as much as I'd like to say your post IS writing, I can't really refer to it as law.

Sure! YS 106: "If you wish, you can allow another character to use the tag for an aspect youíve discovered or introduced. This allows for some great set-up maneuvers in a fight; you can maneuver to place an aspect on a target, then pass the tag to an ally who attacks, using the advantage on his own roll. This can only be done, however, if it is reasonable that the advantage could be passed off."

Also, my previous comment about passing along a free tag to a villain - that's not actually legal. Passing along the Aspect, however, is: the villain will just need a Fate Point to activate it.

You are welcome! AND, I also earned some PCs a few Fate Points.

I would hazard the guess that brian moman is not at "feet in the water" level.

My take on the lawbreaking aspect of this discussion:

This exact discussion going on should be going on amongst the wardens in the campaign - the very murkiness of this issue is part of the Dresdenverse. There may very well be some wardens who feel the action does break the first law, and others who do not. And most should be somewhere inbetween (their cloak color is not a coincidence imo...)

In game-mechanics-speak, whether or not this or any action by a player character breaks one of the laws of magic is up to the GM. And he may answer "yes" or "no" differently depending on the NPC doing the talking (for in-game consequences), or after discussion with the player(s) (for mechanics consquences such as the law-breaker powers).

Oh, and thanks to eberg for the great sample combat! I'm about to start running my first campaign, and this is exactly what I needed for my and my group's introduction.
