Re: Ammo Dice + consumption of ammo

In game terms it would be the benefit of 36 bullets. [...] If your RoF is 6 (as the M16A1) you can use 6 ammo dice because it is lower than the 20 bullets left. You basically do the same thing with a full magazine but can only use the 30 bullets you have loaded. So a larger magazine doesn't benefit...

Re: Ammo Dice + consumption of ammo

I believe that its a held belief dating way back when magazine reliability wasn't very good. some would say, "only load 25 rounds in a 30 round mag". I've heard others say they never load more than 15 rounds in a glock mag (normally a 17 rounds). Mostly with claims that to "fully load" a magazine c...

Re: Minefields

If you can get your hands of STANAG 2036, you could read all about the NATO standards. I'm fairly certain I had a manual or some materials describing the standards while serving, but I've no idea whether or not I have those laying in some drawer somewhere or they've been burned long ago. If you goog...

Re: Compass Token Suggestion

I understand the compass token and would see why it would be a good visual aid in order to name directions on the fly, however I fail to understand the facing problem this is supposed to resolve. Or is this an issue for the VTT software you're using where you can't rotate the tokens?

Re: Lifepath Character Generator

The ideal way would be if the application was hosted on a server but I have no idea how to go about that so for the time being all you can do is run it on your local machine from a command line window and go to the service's URL in your browser. I've private messaged you with a link to the download...

Re: Adventure hooks

I did something like this as part of a session 0 combat introduction for my group. I fully expected several of the PCs to die or get seriously wounded, so I built it as a sort of "different guys somewhere else/flashback/dream sequence" thing just so they could learn the basics of the system and the...

Re: Vehicle Cannon Stats Look Off (HE vs HEAT vs APFSDS)

APFSDS should definitely have more range, accuracy, and effectiveness against modern armor, many of which are all but impervious to HEAT (especially from the front). Most HEAT rounds simply cannot defeat any sort of modern composite armor or reactive armor. Very true. A quick and dirty way to rule ...

Re: Player Quick Reference available?

Something like that would be a godsend, even if it is several pages long. I know a few of my players are totally phlegmatic and wouldn't bother going through all the rules even if I ask them to, so any "quick start" or "quick reference" sort of thing that covers 90% of use cases on a few pages is a ...

Re: Which specialities cannot be obtained during character generation?

For lifepath I read it as "pick any you want from the list" as well.
