Well you could have a create beaten zone action (Similar to ASL
which allows you to lay down a marker that will attack anything moving
through it by some lesser die type (Ala a D6 plus quality) OR you could
just make a raised reaction test (say +2 or qualitydr/3) for anyone
to run through it. Of course the marker would be the center of some
(2 or 3")

RE: AUto fire I've been using Tom's ruules and they work fine. Though
concept of this beaten zone would make a nice addition (to SG2 also)
