If you are attacked by a ship and they are crossing your T and firing at your bow or stern, do you roll any dice as the defender? The rules state that you can only attack from your broadsides, but I'm unclear about defending an attack to your bow or stern.
I don't know where the other guy got his info, but I read the same things in the rules: you can only fire from the broadsides. So, it seems kind of a moot point to get the +1 fire advantage. That being said, I made a house rule where a Defender can roll only one die wherein the attacker has crossed the T.
