Ricochets

Postby Legofighter » Mon Dec 19, 2011 7:44 pm

It already happened to everybody, and will happen again.
Armor exceding damage or skill not high enough is always frustrating. Usually, you just
say: the armor stopped it or you use the near miss rule.
Now, you have another more awesome way to solve it:RICOCHETS!

Example: Mike trooper fires at Justin's hero with a SMG. The poor 2(1d6) for damage doesn't beats Justin's armor of (2d6) 11 (6+4+1).
So Mike rolls for a ricochet(number of dices in the damage from the weapon):
1= no ricochet
Lower than Damage: No
Higher than Damage: Yes
6=ALWAYS WORK:CRITICAL SUCCESS(Mike may choose where it goes)

If it succeeds but is not a 6, you roll to see where it goes:
1 or 2: comes back toward the shooter (or near him)
3: goes left (from shooter point of view
4: goes right
5 or 6: continues forward, with a slight (less than 1 fingercone) change to the course

That's it!

Hope you'll enjoy it.

Technically you could say missed shots in the regular rulebook are like ricochets. If you don't break through the armor, it bounces off and hits something else close-by.

Technically, there's already rules for this in 2001 edition.

This is just a way to make it more hazardous, to make it feel a bit more interesting, since I know we could fudge everything

I already tested it in some of my battles, it's really fun, and sometimes awesome :csi: :sparta:

Unless there was a bunch of guys standing where they would be likely to get hit, I don't think it would be worth the time. If you like it, go ahead and use it, though.
This should be in the Rulebook somewhere:
