Re: Dual- and quadguns

Not saying that's a bad idea, but it does mean for the ZSU-23-4, you'll *only* ever hit with 4, 8, 12.. etc bullets which is a little weird

Re: Ammo Dice + consumption of ammo

We haven't played a lot yet, but my group isn't pushing much, only when they really *need* to hit. I think out of the three sessions we've played so far (like I said we haven't played much yet) they've pushed maybe a total of three times

Re: Ammo Dice + consumption of ammo

rolling more ammo dice always also increases your chance of a jam. RAW, a gun can never jam on the first roll, no matter how many 1's you roll. It only jams when you push, and if you've rolled a lot of 1's already (and therefore have to keep them) you just don't push. That's the one rule change fro...

Re: Rejoining Military after Interim Civilian Term

Career officers (at least around here) have a reputation for gettin' dumber as they get older, so I think I agree with with Baldrick on this one, although RAW because you "choose" your career each term rather than "continue" in it, I suspect the official answer is "no more officerin' for you"

Re: Rejoining Military after Interim Civilian Term

I know you said you haven't implemented promotions yet but even so the output is one Specialty short; you get one for your Background Term and one for your War Term, at least

Re: Damage and Trauma

No, it's a 25% reduction of the attribute value. I'm talking about system granularity, not success chances.
And that's not relevant, to anything except the marks on the paper.
