Naval combat: Suppose Ship A and Ship B are opposing each other and Ship C is opposing Ship A. Which of the following is the case?
1. Ship C’s roll against Ship A is unopposed.
2. Ship A’s roll against Ship B is also used to defend against Ship C (but does not apply a stratagem against Ship C if Ship A wins).
3. Ship A rolls twice, once against Ship B and once to defend against Ship C (but without the ability to apply a strategem against Ship C if Ship A wins).
Ship A makes a single roll (suffering the penalty for being opposed by multiple ships) that opposes both Ship B and Ship C's rolls. It needs to beat both of them for its stratagem to go off.
