you could set the campaign before the books; there's the confllict between the red hearders and the grass giants that could involve the PCs, and the vampires could easily be a recurring encounter type also, there are a number of off-world species available in the great ocean(s) on the planetary maps...

well, i like to figure it like this: a hit from a siege weapon on a high level character does less damage(as a percent of max) in part because they are tougher, but mainly because they are both better trained, and luckier; when a level 1 character gets hit with a catapult rock, it hits squarly and t...

reflex save
5 + 1 + 3 = 9 (failed of a certain, the DC will probably be atleast 22)

Seeing as how the gunners stations are all occupied or inoperative, Namfoodle takes a moment to act in an utterly pathetic manner in response to the pain of his suddenly aquired wounds.

Namfoodle surveys the mess (or, what he can see of it) that's been made of his station. "Oh... Clinkers!" Namfoodle disregaurds Hammer's suggestion; it's not like he'd make much, if any, difference manning a steam gun, especially after his earlier display of martial ineptitude. He begins casting Maj...

In that case...

I still make an attack a round like I rolled for.

I should note, however, that under normal combat conditions I prefer to declare my actions on a round by round basis (and at my initiative count, though i'm amenable to declaring my actions at the start of each round).

([+2 BAB/2] +16 mech dex, +2 controls, +3 dex, -4 non proficiency = +18 )

24 (6+18)
33 (15+18)
25 (7+18)

Namfoodle whoops as he begins connecting with some solid blows... though he can't tell if he actually did any damage.

i wouldn't suggest the trick with the symbol; there's nothing limiting what it can effect when activated other than hitdice, so the only way to tune it to the party would be to get all of the party to have more than X HD

i would suggest you use the pilots and gunners of the mech to determine the CR, and count the mech cost when you use the NPC wealth guide and equip the NPC if they've got more mech than the wealth index would indicate, then bump the CR up a level or two (depending, of course, on the mech; if it's re...
