I'm surprised the link still works (as my provider changed the path).
Still haven't fixed all the links (well, any of the links) from my new
Keep in mind that this was written a *long* time before FMA Skirmish was
known to exist.
It has a very "classic traveller" feel when played, as the average
has about a 20% chance of dying without armour if hit and a second hit
often kill them.
Stats = SG/DS Quality die
Skills = SG/DS FP die
So each time you roll a skill, you roll two die (even if one of them may
a d1 if unskilled/minimal skilled.
The skill side is very sketchy as it is expanded from the combat system.
However it has flexibility in how you want to run your game. The harder
task, the bigger the target die used.
Wounds = physique die type (so d6 = 6 wounds). This die is downshifted
any physique based tasks while wounded (last sentence under "damage"
Combat: d6 - Small Arms d6, Melee d6
Technical: d6 - Small Arms d4
Science: d4 - First Aid d8
Vehicular: d4 - Driving (Wheeled) d4
Physique: d6 - Endurance d6, Unarmed Combat d4
This NPC rolls 1d6+1d6 vs range die using a rifle; 1d4+1d4 vs difficulty

against armour 1d4; the odds are good for some major hits, hence 2
