Reload Clarification desired

Postby Thendoctor » Sat Feb 09, 2019 11:51 am

Is a single reload spent per individual combat scene a group has?

I'm not talking about special ammunition which the jury seems to still be out on. I'm talking about general run of the mill laspacks for a lasgun.

The wording on page 219 is "enough ammunition for a combat scne."

Furthermore "a character can keep firing their weapon for an entire battle without noticeably diminishing their ammunition supply"

So, how's that supposed to be ruled?

Reloads per combat scene? Seems to make sense given that it can imply a general amount of "Adventuring Day" 'ness to the rules and help guide the GM to see just how much combat a session should feasibly have if the PCs never go out of their way to get more Reloads or something for themselves.

Thanks for your time.

I'd say no. The rulebook is very specific when to spend reloads (apart from those instances where it isn't :lol: )

In my understanding, the passages you quote are meant to give ample reasoning for why W&G uses abstract ammuntion rules.

I concur - I've taken the "enough for a combat scene" to be illustrative, rather than a rule that you must expend one per scene.

My understanding is definitely that the intent here is for reloads only to be spent for the mechanical reasons listed in the book. The flavor text may give you an indication as to how and why they come back rather than additional reasons to take them away.

Thank you very much for the response, I hope the holidays have treated you well enough. Should we be hearing about errata anytime soon while we're at it? It's been some time since September's update.
