Re: How to use Initative Deck in Roll 20?

When I deal cards to initiative order in Roll20 then drag turns into a different order, I'm able to edit the numbers in the Turn Order window just by clicking on them. Does it not let you do that? It takes a few steps, but seems to work.

Do transponders affect Target Lock?

I'm reading the rules on ship combat, and I can't tell how transponders are meant to affect the Target Lock action. The Detection box on page 190 could be read to mean that if a ship's transponder is on, the opponent can establish a target lock without having to make a COMTECH roll. If that's the ca...

Re: Printed character sheets

I do not have that box set, but sometimes the glossy sheets work with dry-erase markers. If there's a page or a corner that you'd be willing to risk, you could try making a mark and seeing if it wipes off in a few hours. Personally, I'd print some blank sheets to use. You can download the character ...

Re: Thank You Free League! This game is awesome!

Hear, hear! I just ran Hope's Last Day with a couple of fairly inexperienced RPG players, and it went great. And a few of them lived, which I wasn't expecting at all! :) A lot of barricades and a lot of running, and a very efficient path from the medlab back to air traffic control. Macwhirr and Holr...

Re: Basic Set & Destroyer of Worlds for Roll20?

I would also love to see those! I'm setting up to play Hope's Last Day online with some friends on Roll20 this weekend, and it's a lot of very manual prep work.

Re: Rolling twice same critical injury?

I'm interested to see answers to this, too. I'd think you could just try to apply the rolled result in a way that makes narrative sense--if a character gets broken ribs twice, maybe that's a double penalty to close combat and mobility. If they manage to lose an arm three times, maybe it could just b...

Re: Official Errata

The First Aid description on page 98 says "Certain medical equipment can give bonuses to the roll (see Chapter 5)." That's probably meant to say Chapter 6, which is Gear. Medical equipment is on page 136.

Re: Fatal in 1 round vs Fatal in 1 turn? Questions on Critical Injuries

To anyone who's missed the same round/turn concept I did, it's spelled out nicely in the box on page 84 in the rulebook, and in the Stealth Mode rules on pages 86 and 87.
Cheers,

Re: Fatal in 1 round vs Fatal in 1 turn? Questions on Critical Injuries

There is no your turn and their turn, only turns in which all PCs, NPCs and Monsters do move and explore according to the Stealth Mode rules. The same for rounds. During a round, all participants do their actions, then the round is over.
I think that's the detail I was missing. Thank you!

Fatal in 1 round vs Fatal in 1 turn? Questions on Critical Injuries

Hi, all! I want to make sure I'm reading the Critical Injuries table correctly, especially with regard to fatal injuries. Some injuries list a time limit of 1 turn, while others list a time limit of 1 round. If my character takes injury #53: Leg Artery Cut, do they make a death roll at the end of th...
