As this was probably sent out while I was on hiatus from this list, I
should like to request someone send me a copy, also.
->3: If you have an odd number foor a turn, say 3, can you take the 2

-I'm not sure if this is an official rule, but we (that is my players,

-halfway point in the move.

Oh, Allan, after I told the world(at least those on
rec.games.miniatures.
misc) how you are SUCH an expert on FTII! ;->=

Page 6, second col: If the total Course change is an ODD number, then
round DOWN the initial part of the change and round UP the mid-move
part.
If you take any turns at the end of the move, it's a house rule.

What isn't clear is how you divide the distance. Both examples in the
book
are
even numbered velocity. I assume that you'd split an odd distance
evenly, (

V15: turn, move 7.5", turn, move 7.5", but it's not stated, and the way
things
work in FTII, simple, integer, it caused me a little pause.

->Also,  someone posted a variant of the FT/ST Disruptor batteries and
->I lost the post, does anyone have it?
-Not me, sorry.

Isn't this on Mr. Siefert's(sp?) Unofficial Full Thrust web site? Don't
have
the URL handy, but it was mentioned, I believe, in a post not that long
ago.

It IS a damn fine piece of work; so much so, I sent him a free pack of
hard-to-
find Ogre GEV's just in thanks.
