Since I do not have the SFB rules describing the Mauler I am using
I find on the web,and what you have provided,but am still unclear on how
cannot be destroyed until ship is destroyed (??) ; and can you explain
part about the hull boxes,please? Does this refer to damage effects are
charging of weapon?
I put the books away, so this won't be an exact quote, but it went
something like, as the ship is built around the weapon, that the ship
in essence, the weapon, it's not destroyed until the ship is. Bit of a
stretch for my mind, as it would seem ANY damage to the ship would
the weapon, but I'm not a 'professional engineer'.
The mauler is not a set of boxes to be marked off, just arrows on the
showing it's there. Damage is scored against power (engines and
The part about the hull boxes was my own, rather vague, idea. As the
structue of the weapon and how you reduce it's effectiveness is the
production and storage facilities that are the bulk of the ship, and as
has no separate power recording, I thought one could try to tie the two
concepts of structure and power and reduce the weapon's effectiveness as
the ship's hull is reduced. I haven't tried to come up with numbers, so
may be bogus-to-the-max.
Sorry about the confusion there. I'm currently trying to dig out my EFSB
see what Alan is talking about, assuming I can make the connection.
Wouldn't be the first time he's left me in the intellectual dust.
