Re: PCs too rich early on - What to do?

I keep trying to point out weird little rules that might be playing into the issue and making things easier than intended just in case they are being overlooked. It is easy to do that in the system. For example, how many rounds are your snipers using to line up their sniper shots? Slow aim is a slo...

Re: PCs too rich early on - What to do?

So, in the past week or so, we've had one thread from a GM whose PCs are at death's door and unable to catch a break, and another from a GM whose PCs are waltzing through Poland as if on vacation, taking called shots at NPCs' arms because the players have figured out how to exploit an optional rule...

Re: PCs too rich early on - What to do?

If you're PCs have too much gear then I'd suggest that you get them into a firefight where they are outgunned and have to withdraw. That will "cost" them a load of ammo without recovering anything valuable. Additionally, if their vehicle gets damaged/destroyed then that also knocks back t...

Re: Knife - Meet helmet

I too found called shot pretty useless in general (especially against the "mook NPC's that go down with crit") I implemented the following house rules and they have worked pretty welll: In melee the called shot with a small edged melee weapon like a knife allows you to bypass the armor in...

Also, a driver hunkering down has -2 to his drive roll.

Re: Need help with RAW interpretation. (Vehicle combat)

So, yesterday my players ran into a roadblock. Both sides failed their recon roll, so they were both surprised and it became a meeting engagement, with the players vehicle still moving down the road when I rolled initiative. Now, my players were in an M151 Jeep without a roof (or doors, for that ma...

Re: PCs too rich early on - What to do?

So, how do you guys run this? Any suggestions as how to do this in a satisfying way, both to get the tone right and still have the game seem plausible? If you're PCs have too much gear then I'd suggest that you get them into a firefight where they are outgunned and have to withdraw. That will "...

Re: PCs too rich early on - What to do?

Actually, that's a nice way of explaining the price. Since I mainly play this game online, there's no hiding the price for my players but this way of explaining the price actually makes sence. Thank you.

Re: PCs too rich early on - What to do?

Bandvagn 309 wasn't released until 2003, and I'm not sure what stats you are using. The closest book stats are the 206S, which is a mean machine! AV3 on all sides, and a Cons 4, which is half as much as any other tracked vehicle in the game. Actually (awkshuallyyyy) the 308/309 is the 206S. The 206...

Re: PCs too rich early on - What to do?

Also, I want to clarify, I don't mind my players (PCs) surviving, even being bad ass. I just feel I have a hard time portraying the 2nd game principle, "resources are scarse" , since they emerge from every encounter with 10 to 15 new AK's, being worth hundreds or even thousands of "b...
