Re: Reactions and guns-turret question

To add some thoughts. If a crew member is allowed to either fire OR either react this brings the following: - the point defence is still useful as it can stop several missiles in one reaction. - the sandcaster loses power as the best it can do is eliminate the damage of 1 attack.

Re: Dodging and Diving for Cover

Re: Dodging and Diving for Cover

The only cover which gave 4 in the previous set was pillbox cover which, at least in my sessions, was almost never encountered. In my experience "high level" combats requi...
