One question about the upgrades.  Elf, Lightweight, Ceremonial armor has a weight modifier of -100%.  I have not seen anything on minimum weight so what would you all rule for someone with such armor?  By the RAW the armor would have a weight of zero, but that does not seem reasonable.


I would say that the percentages are applied seperately. That way a suit of lightweight, Cerimonial, elven plate weighs 14 pounds (50% is 25, 75% of 25 is 18.75, 75% of that is 14). This isn't the way that most of the other bonuses work. but it also makes a lot more sense than completely weightless gargantuan sized full articulated platemail.
It seems fairly hand-wave-able in a magic heavy world, plus super expensive and super light and less protective makes sense to me.

That said, however stuffed as the boxes might have been there wasn't a shortage of troops, supplies, or officers willing to back that choice. If the fix was in, it was a popular fix all same.
There were constant shortages of troops and supplies in the south.  All they really had going for them were their generals.

Assuming for the moment that the southern indepence folks have a valid point:  Sleazy that would make Tamney Hall blush went into the "votes" for secession; that were to protect slavery as practiced in the antibellum south.  (Which was vastly worse than Greco-Roman slavery and even Ottoman Janissary slavery.)

You like White Wolf. I think that White Wolf has a great setting and is thematically awesome... and has garbage mechanics.
This.  (Shadowrun is another game with -ing sweet fluff and horrible crunch.)

Steel vs brass vs aluminum vs whatever is some gun bunny inside baseball chatter.  We might as well get .45 ACP vs 9mm going here.   Tongue

The key point is that in all but the slowest firing weapons, heat management is an issue and cartridges are part of that management.  (Along with, for machine guns, easily changed barrels and sometimes asbestos gloves.)  A revolver or a manual action can handle caseless rounds for a while.  Semi-autos for a bit, and full autos will jack themselves up in short order from the heat.  (Now I'm thinking that, Stinger missile style, the magazine includes a significant amount of coolant, or they are a regularly carried accessory for the automatic riflemen.)

If you want to be all future like, you can make your not auto weapons use caseless ammunition.  Well, everything except machine guns really.  Machine guns run into heat trouble, brass is used in shell casings to take heat out of the weapon.
I always cringe when someone mentions caseless ammo and futuristic weapons. That's probably a discussion for another time, but the heat problems are tremendous, which result in cook-offs and catastrophic failures.
Which is why it wouldn't be a feature of automatic weapons, especially machine guns.  (Unless you add in some slightly crazy cooling system.)

No gun bunny?  Then getting down into the weeds isn't going to be worth the trouble.  The more types covered by each proficiency, the less it matters where any given weapon sits on the chart.

My suggestion:  Each broad class of weapon has two sizes of ammunition, light and heavy; any given weapon uses one or the other.  There is some tradeoff; carry more light ammo, heavy ammo has recoil penalties, AP for light ammo, TKD for heavy ammo, that sort of thing.  (SMGs use pistol ammo, and sniper rifles would use heavy ammo.)

I would drop Pocket and Saturday Night Special from pistols, dump SMGs entirely (any given SMG is better represented as a pistol or a rifle.

Sniper is redundant unless it covers a standard set of upgrades.

I'll get back to you about calibers in the morning.

P.S.  If your group has a gun bunny, pawn this off on him/her.
