example wrote:A cowboy is trying to rustle up his escaped bull with a lasso. He finds it sleeping in a field, and stops. He begins swinging the lasso around, thus granting him the +1 skill bonus for aiming. The next turn, he successfully lands the lasso around the bull's neck. The cowboy (size 1) begins pulling on the rope, which is attached at the other end to a size 2 bull. Since both of them are stationary, the smaller cowboy is pulled toward the bull a total of 2", due to the size level difference of 1.
However, this wakes up the bull, who doesn't really like being pulled on by a rope. It gets up, and runs 5" away from the cowboy, dragging him along due to his smaller size. Since the cowboy is no longer pulling on the rope, the length of rope between him and the bull remains the same, meaning he gets pulled the full 5".
The bull continues pulling the cowboy until it passes by a wandering civilian, at which point said civilian jumps in to help the poor cowboy and grabs the rope. Since both sides of the rope are now even in size, neither end can muster up enough force to move away from the other, thus the bull and the two minifigs stop moving.
Unfortunately, the managed to stop right over a railroad, and the train is on its way. The train has 10" of movement, but starts the turn 3" away from the rope. Once it catches the rope, the train (size 9) pulls the bull and minifigs (size 4 total) along for the remaining 7" of its movement.
