Re: Call to Arms: Noble Armada--Clarifications?

By all means roll burn out or slow weapons together. Don't roll non-burnout ones together. Now this leads me to ask a question: Slow weapons ignore shields, no problem there I've taken it that a burn-out weapon that hits an active shield takes down the shield but doesn't cause a hit to the ship its...

Trillion Credit Dynasty

Just curious (and lazy, having read neither TCS nor Dynasty yet), is there a straghtforward way of concerting a Dynasty's military capability into a budget for TCS?

Re: After Action Report: Noble Armada

In retrospect the best tactic for the stealths would have been to close as quickly (All Power to Engines) and have two or three of them try to swamp the Hawkwood destroyer with boarders. But it was a good and fun learning experience Foxphoenix, it never crossed my mind to photo the battle, will do s...

After Action Report: Noble Armada

I got into Call to Arms: Noble Armada last year. I saw painting up the figures, learning the rules and fighting some battles as my X-factor project (something to do while my wife watched X factor on Saturday night). To my surprise I found I enjoyed painting the models (something I loathed as a kid) ...

Movement: Noble Armada

Just wondering if we've read the rule book wrong: The book states: When nominated to move, every ship must be moved a distance in inches between its Speed score and half this amount. All movement must be in a straight line forward. I've taken this to mean that ships must move at least half their mov...

Re: Noble Armada: Multihit

And just to follow up:

weapon is multihit 2, target has one active shield

1 attack die succesfullt hits

does the single shield stod the attack dice (and thus both hits) or just 1 of the 2 hits from the multihit special ability?

Thanks in advance

Re: Official / Unofficial Chthonian Stars for Mongoose Trave

Funny you should mention it, but I was working on a Savage Worlds / Realms of Cthulhu conversion for Chthonian Stars . I was hoping to finish it after The Void came out so I could take full advantage of the Creative Commons license. However, I fear that this setting is going to go all vaporware on ...

Noble Armada: Multihit

Am I doing this right?

A weapon with multihit 2 successfully hits, shields all are down so no worries there.

As it's mulithit 2 do I then roll 2 dice to see if each hit is a bulkhead/solid/critical hit?

Thanks

It has a good reader software for Windows and a good distribution and payment system (No need for CreditCard, Paypal and other primitiv methods)

I'd drop the use of power points and have some form of backlash (risk of fatigue/wounds) instead

Re: Minor Alien Module 1: Luriani

Luriani was a very pleasant surprise.

Nicely put together and it's perfectly fitted into a gap in my alternative government codes for the Spinward Marches. As of now, government code C means Luriani IMTU.

Any chance of a Geonee module?

Re: Future Traveller - Testing the Waters

I'd love to see some alien miniatures, the "war in a box" model sounds like a good one.

As I'm (to put it mildly) not the best painter in the world I'd like to see them done in the same way as the battlefield evolution miniatures, ready to use!
