I find that putting a ruler or pencil (I've been using a chopstick that happened to be within reach) on the screen helps you see which part of the map corresponds to which number/letter. Don't know if that'd help you count, though.

I can't find the deployment bonus that mecha's get when leaving a battleship :(
I know I've read it before, but it's eluding me currently.

Couple more questions now that I've done my move.
Is the Stealth property exactly the same as normal stealthing? Half speed? Same bonuses?
How do we factor in height to our movement calculations?

Aaand 1 more edit. Oslecamo, I've sent you a PM. Just in case you didn't see it, I've missed it a couple of times myself.

You get a deployment speed boost because of Launch Pads, it's one of Alexia's feats.

Ready Action: firing the beam cannon against the first Buzzer to come within 200 MU of the ship (I'm having a bit of trouble counting the squares, so I'm not entirely certain none are within that area ^^;), area attack so that if multiple creatures can be attacked, they will be.

By my count they're just out of your range. 200mu is 40 squares which ends at row K.

However, I think mecha weapons ranges are range increments, not max ranges. If that is the case, you could fire the cannon now by taking a -2 range penalty. You couldn't hit more than 1 of the buzzers at once, though, so  it might be better to wait.
That would be correct.

Yes.

The same as if moving in other directions with mecha thrusters.

I didn't have time to visit this site yesterday at all if it wasn't clear. Busy busy. :p

Normally it takes time out of battle, but with the addition of Veteran Mechanic: one weapon per round.

Still waiting for that to be updated to actually allow the ship to be rebuilt faster or something. XD

Ouch, ended up completely forgeting about that one, will take care of it now. :blush

Ah hah! I knew I'd read it somewhere! Thank you :)

... I think this can be declared a dismal failure so far as firing a giant beam cannon is concerned. :lmao

I'm not actually sure whether Antares is in range of the Leader aura or if I'd have to descend to take advantage of that. Hmm.

He'd probably taken at most a 5-ft step or its equivalent to deploy. He DID say "stay close to the Illustrious", after all.

Yeah, I'm just a bit confused whether he's still 20 MU in the air, or if height is irrelevant.

Well, given the choice, he'd either stand on the Illustrious or hover nearby as much as he could. Someone's gotta stick close to the plating in case the little bastards are the kind to latch on, after all - even if in-game the ship likely has point-defense systems to prevent enemies from this kind of tactics, one shouldn't expect the ship to have to blast hostiles off its own deck.

As a reminder, heavy weapons add twice the relevant stat to damage.

I don't feel quite as bad for the pathetic damage roll, then.

Also, yay rending. Although not sure if that's gonna be enough yet.

Personally, I would try to finish off anything that gets too close, wink wink.

What does Leader's Aura do, exactly?

By the way, do my knowledge checks get me any info beyond "these are buzzers, they look like giant wasps" ?

... anyone got any suggestions? The best thing I can come up with right now is Prepare for Battle on Antares. That then precludes moving, because flying takes Energy and all I can do is fly... :lmao

At the rate energy regenerates, a level one battleship  should, when travelling, be doing at most about three miles an hour. Odd.

In case you missed it, I added the Cruising Speed default ability to battleships.

What happened to Bagra's readied Action? He had his Split Missile ready to shoot, but there wasn't a description of what they did.
