*Shield Penetrator - These rounds cost 8 times as much as standard ammunition, but ignore energy-based shields. They're jacketed with a special EMF-dampening substance that temporarily creates pockets ...

so I don't think it should gain a +3D advantage against unarmored targets.
That's not quite what I said. My point was that the round should suffer the -1D penalty to Damage vs. Armor, but that is in ...

I felt the ffg stuff to be both hit and miss (from my perspective).

Things I did like;
Nice layout, design, art, information etc. Some sections could be better - but overall, well done.

Finally got around to finding out the unique trait for Slugthrowers. They're apparently pretty good jedi-slayers.

Also, if anyone can confirm if this is the case, are slugthrowers able to pierce en ...

Energy shields equally defend against energy and physical damage, so I don't know why slugthrowers would be special as far as physical damage goes.

I looked it up and apparently there's 3 different ...

I gave them a +2 bonus to damage and removed the armor penalty. Giving them a full dice upgrade seems excessive given that they also have a poisoning effect.
The poisoning is secondary, really. What ...

Seeing that movie did make me want to get out DE and read some of it again.
TRoS actually makes the Dark Empire readable by comparison. I'm not a fan of the first crop of Dark Horse Comics' Star Wars ...

Yea, but even then I don't think you're going to see much difference in penetration. In terms of wound channels you could very well see an increase, as the liquid forces the bullet to expand more grea ...

This is where advanced manufacturing techniques would come into play, such as lining the cavity in some non-metal material that kept the mercury from amalgamating with the metal of the bullet.

This exact method was used/described in Frederick Forsythe's Day ...

I have not checked, specifically, but have you checked the other d6 games, especially Adventure, to see if there's ammo rules in them?

I only really recall specific ammo types coming into play when ...
