What about a forced relocation of village or refugee camp. A large Mek company wants the area for a testing ground/development area. PC's have to deal personally with the people, persuading them to move on, explaining the reasons why in a calm manner and then getting them to move on. Maybe the PC's ...

Re: miniatures

I was wondering if anyone knew whether or not the miniatures came prepainted or not. It seems that there has been a recent trend for prepainted (rather, precolored would probably be more accurate) minis, but I have not been interested in any of those... these I probably would be. None of the ones I...

Re: future precautions!!

Not 100% sure but IIRC they already sold out the entire first print run a while back. This book has been very popular. So any new orders placed by retailers and distrubitors ought to be for the AE. We did sell out and it has been unavaiable to Distributors for maybe 1-2 months. I expect that most D...

Good I was too lazy to get my ass to the post office and send the AE ordering form. I guess I'll wait a little longer, just to ensure I won't get a damaged book. PS. I don't have a suitable credit card (only Visa Electron), but my friend has one. Is it possible for me to order AE using his card (wi...

I did that some time ago when I signed up for Sons, along with my present email address. My point remains, if they have that on record, I should be able to send it via some electronic means. The form has the ability to take the credit card details, so you can email us back the form and we can then ...

I believe it is currently on the way to the distributors, so it could be another week or so before Retail stores get hold of it.

We do not ignore threads on purpose, I have only just seen this thread.

In summary; when struck by a weapon you add the Str Mod to AP (if allowed) and get tha AP score. This is then compare to the DR of the armour, if it exceeds it ...

I appreciate your response Yokiboy. I play a character with feats that lean toward making a lot of grapple attacks. I suppose I'm using this forum to make a case for grappling attacks not being affected by armor (or at the very least not *always* affected). Then my games-master (Dr. Skull) might re...
