Sad to hear, will NPC if necessary.

As a note, damage rolls are open-ended (reroll max). You just can't spend chips to increase damage from non-handheld weapons.

Further, as it's a dismounted vehicle weapon, the Voxar cannon requires an action to brace against something. Otherwise a TN5 STR check is needed to keep from dropping it.

Re: OOC: Off-Topic Posts III
Hmmm....Marshall, you posted and then you posted again after Trask...are we on a new round? Just wanting to check if we should roll initiative and/or shooting rolls again.

Don't worry, it's just additional flavour text. Everyone just needs to get their initiative rolls in for the current turn.

I will draw a card for Schaeffer as well when you roll initiative, because it's possible the Trog who's jumping down nearby could see/hear him and divert it's course to attack!

In reply to COL Kurt L. Schaeffer (msg # 977):

I have drawn cards for Schaeffer and Trask. The rest of you may assume you are going before the Trogs.

I would like posts for the actions of Peter, Rowan, Jane and Jason. I see most of you have made shootin' rolls, I need to understand targets!

As well, Peter got an ACR. Do you have stats for the 20mm APERS (computer-targeted HE rounds)? Did anyone else buy an ACR? (I think Rowan got the bullpup G3-A3? Which is made in Iran, apparently.)

Ha! Right. Schaeffer gets a White chip for remembering!

You can add what you like but the preferred format is:


Weapon, Ammunition remaining
Action 1
Action 2
etc.

Hole Card (Sleeved Card/Held Action)

Shouldn't you put the Ammo at the end as to summarize your expends.

In reply to Jason Sinclair (msg # 983):

The .tac bloc is borrowed from another game, where it summarised starting ammo. After all, you might not be able to carry out your action! But I think this idea has merit. (If you don't get to carry out your action I guess I could always let you know your shots were never taken.)

Re: OOC: Off-Topic Posts III
Another note, please include attack and damage rolls, number of actions or Init roll in the .tac bloc for easy reference.

I have made attack rolls for Jane, Rowan and Smoker.

Re: OOC: Off-Topic Posts III
I thought I'd made an attack roll. It's the damage one I hadn't done, not being sure what damage I'm doing (books at home, me at work!).

Will be quiet for the next couple of days.  Boss retires in 30 days and nobody to replace him so have to go in for some "transition training".  Sounds painful doesn't it.

Sounds a lot like "reeducation".

My boss quit last Friday by saying "fuck you all!", flipping the bird and walking out. At least he didn't take a dump on his boss's desk!

My boss ended up putting in his resignation about a week ago.  They still don't know if they will cut my position or not.  Stress city.  But I will try to be good and not get on RPoL during day so that I can learn more things as insurance to not be redundant.

At night if I can post I will but not sure if I will be able to.

Nope. When I quit my C.O.O. was the one who "fired" me. So I set off the Halon system.

Ah, I see. Man, that sucks!

Yes, I will be checking your time code and seeing what time you are posting. No at-work postings for you!

A couple of combat notes:

Vundra can fire his cannon as a single action (without setting it up after every shot) but this shot is at a -2 penalty. (Or whatever the penalty is for firing a Speed 2 weapon on 1 Action.)

The 7.62x54mm round should have an AP value of 1 and not 2. A minor change.

OK! I am closing this thread!
