Just had time for a quick glance at this, very interested.

When (and where) do we get the other EY ships not included in the magazine?

Do you mean the other four mentioned, or do you mean all of the rest?

If you mean the four mentioned, they will appear CL39 Supplemental. If you mean the rest, probably not for a long while.

Thanks for the quick reply!

I meant the other four mentioned in the CL39 article.

Thanks for these EW ships. I never got round to trying them in SFB, might have more of a chance of giving them a run out in FC.

Would it be possible to publish stats for the Nova Cannon and Hellgun for use with FC?

I realise there may be a 'Go and buy SFB Module Y & Y2' response, which is fair enough (I have both of them, so have the stats written down for FC in pencil on a bit of scrap paper). Not all FC players will have, though.

I'll have to double-check, but I do figure that the nova cannon will require an explicit chart.

The hellgun, however, is easy: just use the normal load hellbore chart and only use the first number against the facing shield. No "weakest shield" and no second number.

Mike, when do you sleep? I thought I had insomnia. Very Happy

The Hellbore chart is very slightly different to the Hellgun, though.

Hellbore - 10/9/8/7/5/4

Hellgun - 10/8/7/6/5/4

Just a rounding factor, really. Easy enough to use the HB table for FC, as you said.

EDIT - I've just spotted this. The SFB HG stats use the second FC damage number rather than the first. How very odd. I wonder if that was deliberate.

OK, then. Use the second number. Smile

I thought we had published all of the FC rules for EY, in CL39 and in CL39Sup.

We did. But the only charts we included were for the Quantum torpedo and Plasma-V. They were included because they were different than the SFB charts. All of the other EY-only weapons did not have changed charts, so it was expected that players would just use the charts from the SFB SSDs.

However, with the presence of the Grenadier, it probably would be a good idea to include a simple Nova Cannon chart somewhere. (Sorry, it just completely slipped my mind when we did the ship.)

Is there a chart for the Lasers for the Romulan Warbird included in CL39Sup?

I have CL39 and it indicates the charts for EY weapons would be printed on the ship cards as necessary, but the chart for lasers was not printed on the ship card for the warbird included in CL39Sup.


Thanks
