Wow. I expect I'll be disregarding your stats if that's your approach.

No, it's fine. I wasn't specific about whose fractalsponge D6 stats would be posted here.

You can personally do so without making this unnecessary public announcement of it.

All-Terrain Siege Platform

Image

The All-Terrain Siege Platform is without doubt the most terrifying ground vehicle in the Imperial arsenal. A walker of tremendous proportions, it towers over even the formidable AT-AT. This hexapedal titan is generally deployed as the centerpiece of a major assault, or on long term siege operations, where a self-contained ground vehicle must operate for months without support. The exterior of the AT-SP bristles with a full range of offensive and defensive weapons sufficient to fend off any conceivable attack. In addition, it carries a reinforced stormtrooper platoon.

The AT-SP is also unique in that it is one of the only ground vehicles to include crew quarters for its personnel. This was a necessity due to the expected length of some of its deployments.

Ultimately, the AT-SP's only real weakness (short of a full-on attack by capital ship weaponry) is its slow speed. Even slower and more ponderous than the AT-AT, the AT-SP seems to plod across the ground even at its fastest pace. But that is cold comfort to those who can't run away fast enough (or at all).

Imperial Probe Ship

Images

The Prowler is the Empire's space-going counterpart to the Viper Probe Droid. While the Viper has occasionally been used for space missions, it is primarily designed for planetary scouting and reconnaissance. The Prowler, on the other hand, is almost entirely space-oriented. Small, stealthy, extremely fast and maneuverable, with a powerful sensor suite, the Prowler relies primarily on its speed for defense, as it is both unarmed and very fragile.

On request, here are my version of the stats for the Imperial Assault Gunboat from the TIE Fighter game. I made several changes from official sources, for a variety of reasons. Oddly enough, the WEG published version in AJ#15 didn't have a hyperdrive, even though the Assault Gunboat was one of the few Imperial single-seat fighters that was explicitly HS-capable. Since there was mention of it being used as for scouting and recon, I bumped up the sensors from the WEG version as well. Also, while the official version has two eight-round concussion missile launchers, fractalsponge's version has what appear to be a pair of single-shot launch tubes, 6 to a side. To fit with the image, I gave it two 6-round proton torpedo launchers (which can also fit concussion missiles if they are mounted in an adapter sleeve that fits into the proton torpedo tube).

Hey folks.
I am looking at the TIE Mangler but I have to say that it has 4 additional cannons than I first thought. Maybe they are Ion cannons, but this doesn't really seem like the kind of ship to take prisoners. Suggestions?

Maybe I should have copied the B-Wing's Heavy Cannon but the descriptions all mention how much RAW POWER the Mangler has. Also, I really wanted to try out the new scale system without making this TIE Frigate scale (due to power output).

I did a lot of cut and paste here, so I would be grateful for feedback.

Ion Cannon are also handy for taking down shields. Under the RAW, they ignore Shields completely, but still inflict penalties against the ship's electronic systems, which should include shield generators. Alternately, the X-Wing games made ion cannon particularly effective against shields. I've got a house rule for that around here somewhere... Bottom line, though, ion cannon aren't just for disabling ships, but are also very effective at making ships more vulnerable.

There are a lot of smaller objects grouped around the various cannon on the Mangler that could be mistaken for other cannon. Personally, I think they're probably gun sights or some other aspect of the targeting system.

Based on what I see in the images, I'd probably give it two heavy laser cannon, two heavy ion cannon, a triple auto-blaster and a pair of proton torpedo launchers.

Quote:

The thing to remember about the comments section on fractalsponge is that there is a lot more fanboy-level gushing than there is solid facts about capability. Unless you can get fractalsponge himself to answer questions, a lot of what you'll read there is pure speculation based on how something looks.

That being said, stat writing is always a mix of opinion and educated guesswork. I made the decision for the purposes of my system that fighters lacked the cargo capacity to mount turbolasers, and were thus limited to heavy laser cannon. However, there is no requirement that you have to do the same.

A tip for cut-and-pasting: if you hit the Quote button in the upper right corner of the message, it will give you the message in plain text, including the BBCodes used to insert italics, bold print, and links. I can tell from the stats for the Proton Torpedo Launchers that your cut-and-paste didn't include the link to the document where I list the various types and stats for the ordnance in question.

Quote:
Crew: 1

Seeing as how it uses the same cockpit as the Scimitar Assault Bomber (which has a two-being crew), it wouldn't be amiss to add another crewman. If you're using my system, the second crewman has advantages in combat, specifically in maintaining sensor lock-on for ordnance attacks.

Quote:
Space: 10
Atmosphere: 415; 1,200 kph

Initially, this seems a bit high, but it works if this ship is a contemporary to the Empire's experimental TIEs, like the Avenger and Defender.

Quote:
Shields: 3D

This seems a bit high to me. Unless you're specifically planning on making the ship overpowering, it helps to have one or two things that it doesn't do well.

Thanks for proofreading. I still struggled to link the Torpedo List (am too old to begin the training?)
Removed the shields completely, upped the crew (but left it controllable for the hotshot ace pilot), and improved the hyperdrive X, changed the consumables for the new crew member, added some big double Ion cannons.

I envision the Empire using the Mangler in terrifying counter attacks and/or pursuit actions with the faster frigates.
The Empire might be forgoing shields due to overconfidence in the heavy firepower and speed. "The Rebels won't live long enough to get a shot off." The Admirals might assume they will always be initiating the attack. This means the Mangle is at a disadvantage in a prolonged dogfight or when caught unawares.

A nasty ship to have on your tail but the plucky Rebels could outsmart it.

It just takes practice. Basically, all you need to do to make the link is insert this code into your text:

[url=x ]link text[/url]

So, the link to the document where I list the stats for the various warheads looks like so:

And to insert it into a document, it would look something like so:

I don't know if I would remove the shields completely; my thinking was just that 3D was a bit excessive. Considering this ship will likely be used to attack small capital ships, it will need all the protection it can get. However, it is a TIE, and TIEs are relatively fragile. 2D Shields, perhaps? They did manage to fit 2D Shields on Interceptors in the Thrawn Era, after all...

The Empire forgoing shields will depend greatly on the era in which this is introduced. If it is a contemporary of the standard TIE, then not having shields would be appropriate. However, if it is intended as a contemporary to the TIE Avenger and TIE Defender (both of which have shields), then Imperial design had reached the point where they recognized the importance of shields in regards to Starfighter survivability in combat.

Also, just as a suggestion, you might add a TIE/ designation, such as the TIE/ha for Heavy Assault. Most TIE models have them, even models that are commonly known by other names, such as the TIE Bomber (TIE/sa).
