Subject: Fixed-Fire Cannon combos?
Date: Sat, 4 Apr 1998 08:15:05 -0600
Warning: The following ideas and concepts are not grounded in common-sense
or reality.

Fixed-Fire Cannons
Gear (Accessory)
Play on Drone or Vehicle you control.
X = Deployment cost of Drone or Vehicle - 1 (minimum cost of 2¥)
2¥: Burst Fire.
Limit of one per Drone.
Limit of two per Vehicle.

Ok. Fixed-Fire Cannons are not Weapons, they are Accessories. Therefore
they add their burst damage directly to your total damage. This leads to
the two following concepts....

A) Turbo is riding down the street on his beat up old Harley with the two
shiny new Fixed-Fire Cannons mounted on it. Up ahead he spots some
competition that needs to be taught a lesson. He reaches forward and
unlimbers his Ranger-X bowfrom it's sling, burns 4¥ worth of ammo in the
cannons, and proceeds to inflict 7+2D6 points of SILENT damage?

B) Same Turbo. He's heard rumors that there are some wimpy little deckers
and mages holed up in a Safehouse nearby so he takes a detour through the
Z-Zone and busts them up. He's out of arrows so he pulls his trusty Uzi III
loaded w/ Flechettes and proceeds to chew them up with (5+3d6)x2 points of
damage (assuming they have no armor).

Ok, have at me :).
