Re: Space Combat?

Yeah the technical manual painted a pretty unpretty picture of non-space opera space combat. Orbital webs that shred starships, beam weapons taking place across massive distances so far you need to take "windage" and hope the target hasn't changed vector since your sensor readings pinged off it, and...

Re: Printer Friendly Character Sheets?

Edit: Responded while Mod was responding.

Again, if you know of a PDF reader that works on Android or ChromeOS that allows you to manipulate layers, please let us know. I've not been able to find a single one that even mentions layers.

Re: Printer Friendly Character Sheets?

And for those of us on platforms where PDF readers do not seem to have any ability to delete or switch off specific layers in a PDF? Not a directed complaint, but I'm really getting tired of this "answer" to the "print friendly" PDF question. Alternatively, if you can point at an Android or web-base...

Re: Predator?

I imagine there'll be umpteen fan write ups of Predators within a week of the corebook being released :-)

Re: Interesting setting details

Walmart basically became Buy 'n' Large from Wall-E. 😀

There's a fan produced Alien RPG made for the Fuzion system that had a Resurrection supplement that detailed the effects of the plague. Not sure if it was just stuff the made up or if the based it on source material such as comics and books.

Re: Predator?

I imagine that's a separate license that would need to be negotiated.

I think read somewhere that they don't have any plans to detail the Predators though.

Re: Firing into combat

You could spend DP to have an ally count as cover for the target. Roll the cover, and damage absorbed by the cover is treated as sixes on an attack targeting the friendly.

Re: Atlas Compendium

Not for population. Sizes 1-3 are celestial bodies smaller than 2000km. So moons like Iapetus and large asteroids. They physically cannot house populations larger than "tens of thousands" due to small size, as far as the tables are concerned. The section on population does state that with right tech...

Re: Stun Gun Question

First off, stun has a listed damage of 2, not 1. Which is the same as most other pistols. It has two advantages (situation dependant of course) over regular firearms. It ignores armour, and CANNOT kill. Something we can't say about real world "stun guns". Of course there are more powerful weapons. B...

Re: Stun Gun Question

Re-reading the combat chapter, specifically the rules regarding Stress and Damage, there's no mention of armour under the Stress section. I've taken that to mean armour is ineffective against Stress. Is that correct? Because that would also mean stun weapons ignore armour. And that's something I'd l...
