Damage from volleys including disruptors scored against an Andromedan PA panel bank get one point of burn through for each ten points scored. If a volley scores, say, 15 points, is that rounded up (1.5 rounded up, or 2) or down (to 1)? I've been playing it as rounded down, but wanted to be sure.

No rounding. It is whole 10 points. So,
0-9 points: no burn through
10-19 points: 1 point of burn through
20-29 points: 2 points of burn through
and so on.

Sorry to necro this thread, but the question is germane.

If I score three Disruptor burnthrough points as in Terry's example above, do I roll three separate times on the damage table, or do I roll once and then take the results from Columns 1, 2 and 3?

For example, say I roll a '1', do I score 'RWarp-Impulse-LWarp', or do I score 'RWarp' then roll the die again another twice, scoring possibly different damage rows?

We've always played continuous across the chart.

That's why our disruptor dudes always target weapons.
30 points gets 3 burn through and a 50% chance of Phaser-Drone (err. PA Panel), Torpedo.

There was an addition to (3G2b) for Rev6 that says: "Mulitple burn through points are combined into a single volley."

There is indeed. Just spotted it before reading your answers Smile

Thanks guys.

Tony, have you considered putting your trick above in as a tactical article? I will leave that trick out of my new article....

Commnad Note already written and submitted.
It didn't make CL 42, so hoping for CL 43.

Mine's submitted too. Let's hope they include them both as a sort of 'tag team' effort.....

huh...I never considered that you could use directed damage on burn-though points.

I don't think i like that rule.

Jon - Try it giving rather than receiving. It feels a whole lot better that way round Wink

You almost have to use it.
The only way to use directed targeting is to declare it before the dice are rolled.

At that point, you don't know if you're goign to hit or not... and if so; will you do 9 points, or 49?
