It's a 1d4 firebomb with 2" radius, so less damage but more fire-starting potential.

Alternate Damage isn't supposed to be strictly equivalent - you're trading off numerical Damage for special-purpose Damage effects.


Wait, wait, wait...

Chapter8 wrote:Damage types are associated with particular die sizes, and any Damage die can be swapped for an Alternate Damage Effect with the same size die or smaller. A Damage d8 can be swapped for a d4, a d6, or another d8, for instance, but not for a d10 or a d12. Multiple smaller dice can be swapped for a single larger die, if their total number of faces is equal or greater than that of the larger die; 2d4 could be swapped for a single d8, for instance, but it wouldn't be enough for a d10.


So you're telling us that a d8 shotgun can not swap for a 2d4 Dragon's Breath Shells?

In that case, you might wanna explicitly write that in, since the RAW didn't really make that clear.

I'd like to convert a 1d8 to 4d2s with bonus d2s on a roll of 2, this seems reasonable ... to some people.

Is a d2 just a poker chip or something?

You could do it with dice, even / odd.

Field Training (+1CP): Field training lets the Commando do expert (d8) level stuff at a competent (d6) skill level.


So I just realized a Commando using a mounted weapon is no different than any other competent soldier using it. The Gunnery bonus would only apply when they teamed up w/ another Commando or a proper Gunner. (not a huge deal either way, just a minor observation)
