2 quick rules questions

Post by Tryg2 » Thu Mar 21, 2013 1:43 pm

Hello all,

I am new to DP, and was reading the beta rules where I found some unanswered questions. I was hoping to find some help here.

1. On pg 44 in the rule of repulsers it mentions a defense buff against "free strikes", but I can find nowhere in the rules or forum that describes what a "free strike" is. I have some reasonable deductions, but a firm verdict would be best.

2. On pg 37 under the technician special rule repair. I find no description of this rule anywhere, but imagine that it is similar to the Medic's "heal" rule only in regards to the weapon platforms, correct?

Thank you for your time, and responces.

Upon finding the answer to my first question I have come across an additional question.

3. Are you required to make a ranged attack against an opponent? i.e. I have a PMC Heavy Weapon Specialist with a flame launcher. While there are no X'alanthos in LOS there is a unit of soldiers that are going to come in the front door and swarm me in CQC. Can I make a flame launching attack at the doorway putting a 3' AOE that stays in play in the doorway, and if the X soldiers attack me they have to run through the flame and take damage?

What say ye?

Question 2. If you watch Matt's videos, he mentions the future additions of vehicles.

Had not gone through all the videos yet. Will make a point to do that.

You must target something, so no you can't just shoot the flame launcher. You could, however, go on Overwatch.
