Automatic weapon property has the following text regarding range.
Assuming I have a squad machine gun (range increment 60 ft.) and decide to hose a critter horde with bullets, which of these happens?
In other words, can the automatic weapon affect targets beyond half its normal range increment?
Page 6 notes it will take the players 8 hours to reach the city, with hourly Survival checks to reduce the travel time by 1 hour, to a minimum of 4 hours. This time also tracks how many lightning bolts hit, how much ash there is on an armor's faceplate, and how many hourly investigation checks to make. Once they reach the city, encounter B triggers.
If the players fail at the Survival checks, they each have eight opportunities to reach the investigation goals. A talented survivalist can cut these opportunities to half. Am I missing something, or should there be an upside at reaching the target area faster than anticipated? The only benefit for succeeding at the Survival checks seems to be avoiding lightning bolts and ash on your faceplate, and the Mysticism goals can provide cover from the lightning bolts.
I'm probably going to have the players preroll their eight faceplate Survival checks before the game starts. That way I can consult the results quickly when needed and avoid a situation where six people are yelling numbers at me.
I am running this scenario on monday, and would like to ask a couple of clarifications.
1) Is it permissible to change the tactics of the living topiaries, especially on four-player low tier? With the young template they have 32 hp, and start using their assimilate ability after taking 2 hp damage, which pretty much guarantees they appear, self-heal for 1-2 rounds, then escape or die. Or should they use assimilate for one round only?
2) Do the high-tier assassin topiaries have the move through hedges and sculpt shape abilities? They are not included in their SQ line, but their tactics imply they have them.
3) Is it permissible to just give Nayeli a Will save bonus? Or is there a Tier-dependent bonus that should be used? She has no statistics, and enchantment magic is stated to be a valid solution against her.
Minor statblock notes:
Reminder to whoever happens to be reading this:
From the department of small questions.
A would be simple. B is kind of weird. C is not ruled out, since ammo is sold in specific quantities.
Hi. How much stuff can you cram inside a rigid white shipping envelope? I am asking because those brown cardboard golem boxes have two problems. One, they are not delivered home, but instead go to a post office, and picking them up requires travel and time (I'm busy and/or lazy). Two, those clinging packaging peanuts are horrible (first world problems, yay).
I could ask for various combinations of books, but a more practical question might be this: If overseas Shipping & Handling costs stay under $10, does that mean the books come in an envelope?
Everything I have received thus far has been in expected condition, with nothing broken* or busted. So this is a question of convenience, not a problem with shipping or product condition.
*with the possible exception of my mind, after trying to clean up those peanuts.
