I on the other hand would apply a combination of Ockham's Razor and the definition of the term. A Reload is something you consume to reload your weapon. Thus, after a Reload has been expended, the weapon is re-loaded, and can be used until a Complication is triggered.

If it were otherwise, we'd end up with the weird consequence of a character spending an action to reload their weapon, only for the gun to remain useless and the ammunition vanishing into thin air because their Reload counter ticked from 1 to 0. ;)

I feel like it's weird timing to shift from forums to Facebook now, considering the change in social media trends. And I'm sure I'm not the only member of the target demographic who started avoiding that platform lately.

Ah! Can you also get us the previously teased verification concerning grenades using Reloads, while the topic is being discussed?

Personally, I'd prefer if grenades would just serve as "unlocks" rather than using both a separate pool and Reloads. Less tracking that way, and it's more consistent with how Reloads function in terms of auto-refreshing -- whereas I take verispex' answer to mean that whilst Reloads do refresh, and you can use Reloads as grenades, newly refreshed Reloads can not be used as grenades when you don't start the game with at least 1 "physical" grenade. I'm sure you can see why that sounds needlessly complex. :D

Best of luck getting settled in, and thanks for your responses here!

Anything on either of those fronts or Lynata's own question?

For that matter we still haven't heard anything from Ulisses in the way of announcements other than the book finally getting to flgs.

Still not heard much of anything. Heck we didn't even hear about the website going down so they could make a new one.
