Sidekick Rifle or shotgun, pistol, Look Out Sir! (if with in an inch can take a hit meant for the primary character instead.) Can be performed after character would normally be hit. (Those selfless sacrifice type of guys!) Spot 7
Each player can have up to 3 characters and 2 Flunky’s. They can have fewer characters and make up the difference with more Flunky’s. Sidekicks are possible for Explorer’s, Big Game Hunter’s, Officers and Sparks. Bring extra figure, die roll before game starts to see if you have one for one of the mentioned classes, Sidekick replaces a Flunky.
Movement is 6+D6 per turn. Figures have a 180 degree frontal view.
Walking is 4” or less. Turning in place is same as stationary. Moving Evasively reduces run speed by -3 but makes you harder to hit.(harder to fire also…) Once every other turn you can RUSH if not encumbered, gains double run distance rolled, must move all or end in cover. Cannot be encumbered.
Jungle patch is D3 penalty in distance(1=2 inches per to cross, 2 = 4, 3 =6 inches). Waterways are 4x’s
To search a encounter patch you must move thru the patch then roll to search, it does not conceal you while you search. Large Encounter patch can only have 1 group in the middle of it to make search rolls. Search Rolls cannot be made if you are being fired at.
Carrying Booty or prisoners / wounded reduces movement by -2, and all of these cause you to be Encumbered.
Firing at an enemy group. Over 6 inches, should you get a Hit when shooting, the Hit is assigned randomly (by die roll) to a single figure in the group. If multiple hits are scored, all are randomized, even if this means one character or flunky ended up getting multiple times. Devilishly hard to recognize people at range! (Hence having flunkies to help absorb hits….) Under 6 inches, Characters only may select fire. Melee is base to base.
Search: Roll to find treasure at marked Areas, Spot Roll: See hidden people or creatures, Trip Find happens when ever party is at encounter marker. Anything that requires any other type of check will be based on the highest stat the character/flunky has. (command number etc.) Flunky has Skill 6 for this.
Creatures attack from hiding by chagrining out! 4D10. Those in open that become aggressive move 2D10 first move then 4D10! You get to learn aggro ranges the hard way!
Anything not covered here will be adjudicated and recorded/implemented by the GM during the game if needed!
