Where's the board/map for SOS? I thought I might just use the RBS map, but the rules for SOS talk about tree trunks and scrub, which isn't on the RBS map.
In SOS, the stats for the Tootsie Roll begin: "2D6/2, Maneuver+1, Systems+1." I know that 2D6 indicates the strength of its weapons: "Abbreviate weapons as: XD6, where X is the number of dice of damage the craft deals" (LTS rules, p. 6-7). But what does the number after the slash indicate?
Also, what does "Systems+1" mean? Should that be "Shields+1"?
I think I may be able to answer this. I printed Repel Boarders Starboard around '08 or '09, and in the rules included with the game at that time, the number after the slash is defined; I see in the current version, this rule is omitted. The rule reads...
Shields Capabilities Each shield factor costs two points, but neutralizes one damage point each time the craft is hit. Abbreviate shields as: /x, meaning X points of shields.
In this case, the number after the slash is 2, meaning 2 points of shields.
Systems +1, I can't find defined in any iteration of the rules. It's definitely meant to be "Systems" and not "Shields" as the word Systems is used in the rules and in the solo adventure repeatedly. When I played RBS, I just ignored Systems as there's really nothing to do with it. Maybe it's defined in one of the published sci-fi PAs?
Kellvyn, thanks very much for your questions. Your questions enable us to flush out problems, and clarify rules and adventures.
Vladtaltos, your are absolutely correct--thanks again for clarifying things.
"Systems" is not yet being used. There was an intended purpose for this, but it hasn't yet been implemented in any adventure. In the mean time, both RBS and SOS have been corrected to reflect this mistake on our part.
