Finally done...

Sorry it took so long, I've been a tad busy and I wanted this post to be worthy of all the other great posts this game produces.

And I know that Wolf didn't actually take the shuttle, but I don't think that John does.

post

Thanks to everyone for the great posts. With Vanadia in Boston until Saturday night and Incrediboy in extremely erratic sleep patterns right now, I do not think I will have time or state of mind to post coherently until Sunday. If I can, I will do so sooner.

woohoo!

I got sleep last night! Woohoo! Now I can run this combat and get us moving. Please note that is will only cover about 6 seconds of time passing so reading it will take longer than doing.


Giddy - one small point. The radio is small enough to carry but not put into a pocket. More like 12"x10"x2". Not that it will effect game play, but wanted to be clear.

Ok Roger

Ok I stopped my post where I did as depending on the outcome of my shots I may need to post more. Iím of course trying to bring the ASREV down. I should have the time to do so as it canít climb fast enough for me not to get at least 1 clip into itís belly as it climbs then circles.

Iíd try for the cockpit but with only a d6 in guns the belly is a bigger target. Also on most ships the underbelly is the least armored.

Great post though had me on the edge of my seat.

The plane

Ok. I will take into consideration Wolf and Asher shooting at the Asrev. However, keep in mind that due to scale, you are only doing 1/100 damage or possibly less. Plus your best range is 100 feet, 300 max. This is partially why I did not post you shooting at it because without an anti-aircraft weapon, it would be very difficult to take it down with a handgun.

Ok fair enough

However he and I are not using handguns we are using Assault rifles which do more damage and have longer ranges then a handgun. Plus if Ody shoots for the cockpit he should have a good chance of cracking the windshield making it impossible to go into space.

Yeah the chances are slim but who knows the dice may favor us and we damage it enough to cause the bad guys problems

From the rule book:

From the rule book:

For purposes of figuring damage and Life
Points, Vehicle Scale is roughly 10 times greater
than Personal Scale, and Spacecraft Scale is roughly
10 times greater than Vehicle Scale. When using a
weapon from one Scale on the next higher Scale,
treat the damage as 0 (that is, only the basic damage
applies). When going from higher Scale to lower,
multiply damage points by 10. If using Spacecraft
Scale weapons on personnel, any hit is pretty much
an automatic kill.

So, the ASREV is two scales bigger than your guns which are in your hands.

Slim chance? Not really.

There is a reason in the pilot episode, Mal goes for the anti-aircraft gun, and does not try to use his assault rifle to take down a ASREV.

Weapon Damage....

Well I was figuring that a spaceship had a hull and windows that were VERY strong to repel space debris and rock when flying at high speed. But would the odds be better for a random hit and damage to interior system if a few shots were fired through the closing door? Ricochets and such hitting pipes and electrical things. Those systems would not be made of the same hard material as the hull. I know it would require luck ( or applied points) but it seems to me a better change to damages that bird without having antiaircraft weapons.

To that point would the ramp have to be closed before the craft could lift off? I'm thinking that if it is closing as it rises up that would put Asher in a good spot to shoot a burst into the interior and hope for some kind of critical system damage. It seem a normal move for Asher to open fire on the ASREV, but he knows enough about ships and systems to try for a weak spot.

Good Point

As a mechanic Wolf would know it's a very very slim chance to hit something. But Ody makes a good point as to shooting through the closing ramp. Would Wolf be able to get some shots off also into the ASREV's interior??

ramp

The ramp would be all the way up by the time that Asher or Wolf could have targeted the system.

Well I understand your desire to take down the ASREV, it is asking a lot to expect that you have any chance of doing so. It has the equivalent of 600 Life points to you and you you would be doing only 1/2 basic damage if I was feeling generous. It would be like taking down a Dragon with a peashooter and foul language.

Just for the record, I am not going to do any evil GM trick here of having the bullets falling back down at terminal velocity or the ricochets into the crowd of passengers.

Your Captain is down and really you don't know if he is alive or not. Havelock is bleeding from a chest wound he took to save innocent passengers. Willow was just manhandled roughly. You have three captives. It seems to me that there are more pressing matters to attend to than a hopeless attempt to take down a ship that would have to crash land ....somewhere.

Ok not a problem

I'll just add to my post from the point where I empty the clip into the ASREV to no effect. I have a few other things I want to do this post.

I was hoping to shoot someone in the head again...

Maybe I'll still have the opportunity.
