Re: Error - Pulse Rifle Ammo

Even though it is only "weak" radioactive, it is still dangerous if you get it inside you (which of course is the sole purpose of a weapon). Inhaled or ingested, yes. Injected is another matter. It’d have to be in solution or perhaps powdered and even then this is a terrible way to go about it. The...

Re: Error - Pulse Rifle Ammo

Depleted Uranium Tipped Bullets https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depleted_uranium Very effective, very deadly That’s depleted uranium you’re referring to, which is not the same thing as U-238. Depleted uranium contains small amounts of other isotopes other than 238 which are only found in spent reacto...

Error - Pulse Rifle Ammo

Cinematic Starter Kit, p. 86 says Pulse Rifle rounds are tipped with U-238. U-238 is not hazardous and barely radioactive. You’d have to wear a suit of it for years to get mild skin cancer. Suggestion: Choose another isotope or element or just delete that part. https://ieer.org/resource/factsheets/u...

Re: Weeks discovered to be “not a thing”?

A solution was cobbled together on The MeWe site. Here’s how it goes (not official). A week is 6 days. 6 weeks per segment, plus one transition day at the end of each segment. That way the so-called extended period of rest after each segment now works. A watch is 6 hours, with one transition hour be...

Weeks discovered to be “not a thing”?

How the Third Horizon reckons time, p.248: Cycle: 1 Kuan year, 336 Kuan days Triad: a “season”, more or less. 3/cycle. 1 extra day between each. Segment: 1 “month” more or less. Note that Kua has no moon so there is no concept of a lunar month. 37 Kuan days. 9/cycle. “Each segment ends with an exten...

Grenade Miss/Scatter

If you throw or launch a grenade and miss, where does it land/detonate?

Might not matter much with most small grenades, but it would if the Blast is 7+. Those have a wide radius of (usually) low damage potential...

Re: Couple of Rules Questions.

Survival makes he most sense to me too. Regarding question 2: There is no such thing as a “neighboring system.” They only appear that way because they are linked by portals. Two stars linked by a single portal could be 5000 light years apart in normal space, while two other stars that you have to ma...

Re: Starting gear write up

Thank you for posting this. It’s a good idea. A digest for easy player reference (especially those that don’t have a rulebook yet - you know how players are...) with a few brief added notes to answer those questions they don’t know they’ll have yet. :-)
