Re: Ranged Combat cheat sheet

Only comment is grenades use AGL. See pitcher specialty.

Edit: Although after a second look pitcher does not exist for any subtype

Re: Ammo Dice...why?

If all ammo dice are removed (because even the lowest ammo die shows a number higher than the number of bullets left in the magazine), the attack still happens, and the magazine is emptied. This mean that if you have only one bullet in your magazine and the ammo dice shows any number above, it is r...

Re: What are machineguns? The game knows but refuses to admit it.

OK the handbook says Hand grenades follow the same rules as other heavy weapons, with these exceptions: None of those exceptions say use range combat. The previous page says only mounted weapons use AGL. Others use STR. What did I miss this time haha.

Re: Armor Pen on vehicles and Small Arms

I am trying to figure out how you get to 5. 2 base plus 4 successes is 6 damage? That is assuming an AA on your skills.

Re: Armor Pen on vehicles and Small Arms

You mean the max damage a LMG can roll is 8.. .2 for base damage and 1 for each Ammo dice.. so potentially 8.. very very unlikely as you stated though.. But yeah, we will see whats coming. I actually miscalculated, sorry, the max damage for an LMG is 5: Weapon damage 2 + 1 for each extra stunt = 5....

Re: What are machineguns? The game knows but refuses to admit it.

Where are you getting all of that from? That doesn't sound like anything I remember reading. If you look at the modifier tables it would appear heavy weapons target hexes. if you target a person you get a -2. On page 68. It also says it resolves just like small arms fire on a hit. Bottom line I thi...

Re: What are machineguns? The game knows but refuses to admit it.

The whole thing was learning. It was my first time ever playing a game like this and we were all learning to play a bit. We took over 5 hours to create and to play the one shot using Fantasy Grounds. Check out The Jolly GM on twitch. He is going to stream our Sunday night session.(2030 EST) I think ...

Re: What are machineguns? The game knows but refuses to admit it.

All good points. We ran a one shot this weekend as an intro so my thoughts are based on that and reading through the book today. A MG should really excel at suppression of enemy forces but that coupled with ammo scarcity would give the balance needed. There is no way my idea is optimal just another ...

Re: What are machineguns? The game knows but refuses to admit it.

Ok here is my 2 cents. I would say the MG rules should be based on how many ammo dice you use. You use one? Ok fine its like a rifle. Use AGL. It does everything a rifle can do but you get a -2 unless you take a turn and aim etc. You use more than one ammo die? It targets a Hex and is a heavy weapon...
