Continuing the discussion from Flight of the Lepus, Leaving Shootout Location (Sheriff Eli follow-up):
The shootout takes place at the location of the mark, and does not change for the duration
of the shootout (even if the mark subsequently leaves the shootout).
- Section 6.1 Shootouts
Rope and Ride 3
Action • Cost 0
React: After a dude accepts your callout, but before posses are formed, boot your leader or their attached Horse to move your dude then the mark to an adjacent location that is not your home. Boot the mark.
My question is, would Rope and Ride cause your leader and the mark to leave the location of the shootout, thus causing them to leave the shootout? or, Is it that Rope and Ride changes the location of the mark before the shootout starts, thus the location of the shootout is where the mark is after Rope and Ride?
