Re: GRENADE!!! And how do they work

Ah. You're concerned about the implementation not the concept. Yeah, I agree. They probably need a special distance rule.

Re: GRENADE!!! And how do they work

Yes, they should. Dropping the grenade essentially at your feet is...it happens.

Re: Real quick question - water ration weight

Top of page 19 of the Alpha Player's Guide. Important note, however, that is a very approximate measure. A loaded M16A2 is 4 kg even and it's listed at 1 ENC. We can still derive game stats from real data but can also fudge for playability.

Re: Real quick question - water ration weight

It has a capacity of 18.9L. 1L ≈ 1kg. 1ENC ≈ 3kg. Doing a little math nets a capacity of a little over 6 ENC, add the weight of the can, gives a nominal 7 ENC for a can full of water.

So it's a derived value to game standards converted from real world measures.

Re: Real quick question - water ration weight

Uhh, a water ration is 1 G/day, or both an American GI's 1 qt canteens plus the 2 quart canteen on their ALICE pack. However, 1 ENC ≈ 3 kg, so at half an ENC, a water ration is defined as ~1.5 L. Not really enough for a human for a day, but maybe there are other sources of water in food rations and ...

Re: Using the dice mechanic with aliens etc.

A+ with this system is d12 plus another d6 added to the pool. A++ would be d12 and d8, etc.

Re: Real quick question - water ration weight

Given the game uses encumbrance and not real weights, it should be negligible or 1/4 at most.

Re: Ammo Dice...why?

But the skill hasn't been reduced to F, penalties have just reduced the die to [null]. You are still skilled.

Re: Player Narrative and Player Tactical Control

Did you find Phoenix Command to be more realistic or just more complicated.
Yes?

The basic rules only as used in Aliens and Dracula and Living Steel are much more playable. I've never gotten around to running Terminator.
