"...but only slightly less well known is this:
...never go in against a Sicilian when DEATH is on the line!"
Question about the doomsday machine attack ratings on pg 8 of the scenario book. It states that they always miss on a roll of ten and always hit on a 1. Why is this? Some of them have attack strength of 11 so how can a ten be a miss? Also how do you roll for attack 11 with only a ten sided dice?
Unless the DM is attacking single-hulled ships with no defense technology, the effective attack of the DM is going to be 10 or lower since it gets reduced by the defending unit's defense value.
Because there is a school of thought that says nothing should ever be certain. My grandfather played poker with the rule that a royal flush could be beaten by a natural pair of 2s.
Also, that is the single greatest Poker house rule I have ever heard of.
