Shooting Dice for Musket/Musket *

Post by Eques » Mon Nov 06, 2017 9:57 am

The shooting dice for Musket troops are listed as 1 per base at short range and 1 per 2 bases at long range, which seems straightforward enough (though no rank specifications?)

However, the shooting dice listing for Musket* doesn't seem to make sense.

"1 dice per base of 1st rank at short range
1 dice per 2 bases of 2nd rank at long range"

So only 2nd rank shoots at long range??

I think you have missed out an "or" in the second line ...

Aha, so I have, thanks.

So if a BG has 4 shooting bases in total it would fire with 3 at short range and 2 at long range.

Was there not a more simple formula that could have been used???

Off the top of my head, could put something in the PoAs instead? Or just clarify the wording: "Long Range: 1 dice per 2 bases; Short Range: 1 dice per Front Rank base plus 1 dice per 2 second rank bases"

I think once you include the "or" it already is pretty clear TBH.

I think once you include the missing "or" it already is pretty clear TBH - it's not been one that I remember seeing any requests to clarify at any time over the past few years.
