Thank you to all that have posted ideas for a new Heavy Gear Blitz campaign and all who have volunteered to help with it. We will be posting a summary of the poll and its impact on our plans for the first online campaign next week. We are currently planning the launch of our first online campaign later this quarter.
Tentatively to take place during the War for Terra Nova, so that all the factions can get in on the action. With players submitting battle reports, posting photos, and discussing the campaign here on the DP9 Forum.
Discuss other settings or genres that you are playing with the SilCORE or older Silhouette systems. Please note that while discussing playing a setting or converting items from other settings is allowed, wholesale conversions of systems are not.
So! We now know Venus is creeping up on us for Kickstarter much sooner than I could have hoped. But then again what do you expect for a entire fleet of warships disguised as civilian vessels. There sneaky. Now I was looking over the early renderings of the Venus ships and recognized many of the designs from the Fleet Book (Seriously people get the fleet book for Venus!!)
However I did note a number of vessels I did not recognize. Dave could we get a listing of ships currently being considered for the Venus fleet and perhaps a short little blurb about what that vessels' role is in the fleet?
No, just that you can do that if it works out in your favour. E.g. if you are firing at a Jaguar in heavy cover it's better do that with a 1d6 shot which ignores cover than a 2d6 shot which doesn't. Average damage 1.12 vs 0.63.
If you were firing at e.g. a Spitting Cobra in light cover your average damage is better if you take him as a the primary target (0.62 ) than if you negate the cover by firing next to him (0.48).
It matters, because the blast trait only says that it determines the cover for the secondary targets from the target model or point, so the primary target cover is determined as normal and you'll have to aim at the ground near him for the blast to circumvent the cover.
