PHR medium caliber

PostFri Oct 21, 2016 11:17 pm

So, writing this tired an not as observant, but asking anyway :D

The phr have caliber weapons, making them good at hitting certain targets due to their size.
But, medium caliber weapons don't have the caliber rule it seems like? Is it a typo, or was it the same in the beta?

Kind regards for anyone who can shed light on this!

It's not a typo, PHR Medium Caliber guns are the "all 'rounders".

But that's kinda the point. The Heavy Caliber's are specialized, and the Light Caliber's are specialized, but the Medium Calibers are all 'rounders. Makes sense to me... :D

I've picked up from web articles that Medium calibre hit on 4+. Is that right?

Yes. One battery is 4 shots, 1 Damage hitting on 4+. There can be up to two batteries (acting as one) per side of a ship...

They would be no brainers if there would be a "Caliber (M)" rule. Though I agree that from a fluff perspective it is slightly odd.

Why odd? You are complaining that in a RPG elves are faster than humans and dwarfs are slower than humans but humans don't get any bonus in speed :D

No that would be the equivalent of lock values.

But the rulebook says there is a caliber (M)? That was why I asked :)
