Re: Suppression Impossible from Single Shot Miss

Doing that immediately invalidates actually firing 1 ROF die as an option. It pretty much invalidates 2 ROF dice, as well. If you try to fix every "problem," you end up breaking more things. Is it bad to leave it as it is, and let common sense be the guide? So the sniper missed his shot. Do I like m...

Re: Another Specialty and CUF Clarification Sought

You increase CUF whenever you gain a "promotion" in a military career term (and a few others).

No, there's no such thing as automatically gaining specialties.

Re: Infantry Squads

This isn't a wargame; I don't really need rules to discourage unrealistic spacing. There are plenty of ways PCs can die and it's likely to find most of them eventually. If they want to spread out to where they can't help each other and maybe can't support each other, then that's their call. There's ...

Re: Infantry Squads

Depends a lot on the mission and security posture, terrain, and above all visibility. In daylight, in the open, with likely contact, you'd want to be 5-10m apart from each other. At night, you want to be closer to each other. At night in bad weather you want to be practically touching. The risk of a...

Re: Adventure hooks

Those are all good books. I think by the standards of today they're a little dense in terms of usable material, but they're very full of good stuff. Free City especially (and likewise, I'm consistently trying to drop more rumors in that direction). Once my current Pietrkow centered campaign is done ...

Re: Central Poland resources

It is "intact," but damaged by airstrikes and contaminated by persistent chemical agents. Decontaminating it, rebuilding the destroyed high tension lines, and other infrastructure rebuilding and security tasks are a few of the significant campaign hooks.

Re: Central Poland resources

Been working on a map. Trying to hit the right balance of usable and period-accurate, OSR style. A found document that players can have.

Re: Settlements

Again, I think you just need to settle on what the scale/goal is. If you see the Settlement as 20 people in a fort, then I think your decisions are supporting that just fine. The lens I was looking at it through is more like a village of 1000, or larger. And from that perspective some of that stuff ...

Re: Rejoining Military after Interim Civilian Term

No. You only have to do it once.

I also think the police/crime thing is kind of counter-intuitive. My ruling is you can't have been CAUGHT.

Re: Settlements

This is pretty clever, on the whole. I like how it uses mostly familiar mechanics and terms. I wish they were actually a little less familiar because I think it is a unique mechanic that deserves it's own consideration. I had a hard time parsing the Practical Stats part at first, and on a second rev...
