Some months after buying the book based on rpg.net buzz, I’ve found myself with an opportunity to run Fires Over Omac at my local gaming club. Lurking in the forums and reading the wiki has been very helpful, but I thought I’d take the opportunity to clear up a few of my issues.
I’m very confused by Close Combat.My current understanding is this:
I script Close Combat. Tactics or Command gets rolled, we work out the disposition losses. I’m fine with this bit
Everybody in both units scripts a single close combat action.
The Close Combat actions are resolved using the chart independent and versus actions etc, same as with any other scripted conflict.
So, my questions:
a) Everybody? Really? That could be a lot of rolling.
b) There are a bunch of vs. actions in there. How do we decide how the combatants ‘pair up’? Who are the actions compared against?
