    Well they could have done it the Firestorm Way and reduced the AD dice at Range Band 1, either way it reduces the effectiveness of the guns.
    But at least this way it is clear cut what the to hit number is!

    I don't know how many of you are familiar with BattleScribe but the members of our club use it all the time for our games.

    The Invaders landed on Monday... fortunatly for us mere mortals they have done nothing but unpack themsleves and completed a bit of self assembly...
    Perhaps they are waiting for a pdf order before they attack....
    Our glorious defence forces are unable to fire at them due to not knowing their defensive capabilities...

    Cool Dad reacted to Nazduruk_Bugzappa in Linked Fire   
    if they're linking all their turrets together at the same target, it's cruiser A (5+2=7) + 1/2 cruiser B ({5+2}/2=31/2 ->3) + 1/2 cruiser C ({5+2}/2=31/2->3) equals 13.
    but you can instead declare all the fore turrets are going to link together (5+2+2=9) and all the aft turrets are going to link together (5+2+2=9) for 2 bursts of 9
    which is a little bit better than the 3 bursts of 7, if the ships each fire separately

    for a demo fleet i would drop any thing that flys or submerges as your intention is to teach and show the core mechanics, the fact they want to try flying stuff will make them get the rules and grab a box rather than just play the free demo fleet.
    for teaching the game i use prussian V EOTBS letting the opponent use the prussians, in a demo game a boarding action thus far has not happened as the player is happy going around blowing things up with guns and getting all excited, a demo is a tester on how fun and simple a ga,me can be if they want to get all complex and tactical then thats a proper game they need to play, as the demonstrator you need to show them how to use a fleet and how not to at the same time and explain, ie colide with an island for a giggle if they had a round of really poor dice, the aim should also be made clear its not about a win for either side just a show of how it plays, and your both have 2 times as much fun. Thats how i run my demo games any way as the last thing your learner wants is you with your head in the book every 2 mins, bit like a date with a girl who has her head in her phone.
