    I was running the DTotSL at the weekend and we where using the SWEX chase rules for the first encounter and it seamed that the Out of Control rules make no sense. Was there a mod for them as part of the DTotSL that I have forgotten?

    In which way does OoC of the old chase rules make no sense? A few more details, mate. 😉

    Thanks,

    It seams under Chase Attack it says ignore everything but a 2 or a 12 (I assume the rest are fluff but cause a Piloting -2). And they says they might have collisions except without a map we have no idea if it does. So do we assume the Pilot rolls against another obstacles.

    I kind of assume there might be a spaceship version of the table.

    My following statements refer to the Chase rules of the SW Explorers Edition, not the current SW Deluxe Editon.

    Thanks,

    Yes, only Roll Over and Flip apply in Chases. The other effects are reduced to a -2 modifier (SWEX p117)

    And they says they might have collisions except without a map we have no idea if it does. So do we assume the Pilot rolls against another obstacles.

    There is no map in Chases, obstacles are reduced to mere modifiers. See Maneuvers table on SWEX p118 Obstacles.

    If the Driving/Piloting roll is failed, the vehicle hits an obstacle and suffers collision damage as usual. The obstacle’s softness and frequency are in Obstacle paragraph on SWEX p118. Collisions in chases happen typically at half Top Speed to determine collision damage.

    These rules are tweaked by the Obstacle rules in DToSL, especially in the Compendium and Battlefield Hazards. Chases usually have “scripted” Hazard/Obstacle tables with special effects that differ from the SWEX core rules.

    Is it a little clearer for you now? 😉

    Yep just though I remembered something more when I ran it last time.

    Thanks.
