Planetary Assault questions
« on: September 24, 2015, 01:14:09 PM »
I opened the multi drop tracker for my PA and saw a drop down for the LZ map.  Does this mean I get to pick the map out of the options or is it dictated by the order it is listed in the forcedec email?  If it is the attacker's choice then do I pick for all 3 drops and can I repeat maps?  Also...am I interpreting it correctly that all 3 LZ drops are 400 ton drops?

Yes, defender needs to choose the LZ map:

I have added a blurb about the defender choosing the maps.

When you choose an LZ map.  That map will populate as the first 3 drops.  You will also get the next 4 drops as well.

Ohh so this explains it.  We were unsure if that was true or not.  Thanks.

Attacker picks Landing Zone, not the Defender.  :D

Hmm, well guess how long it's been since Xavier did a PA in NBT! Will fix...

Will fix... meaning you will change it to defender chooses?

Because I think it makes all the sense in the world that the attacker chooses where to land his Dropships.

Or...

Will fix... meaning you intent to play a PA soon?

Will fix == "changed rules text to 'attacker chooses' to match what actually happens" ;)

If only I could do a PA on my own with a single RVN-3L...

Looks like a slip in the assignments when Battletech sourcebook uses the same name multiple times.
