I like that. It simulates the concept of muscle memory quite well.

That could be applied to some of your specialty actions from the Tactical Combat thread, too. I think I may start a topic to see what people have for suggestions.

Also, I had another thought for the Initiation Pattern: a center-break model, like an old shotgun. I could see it being easier to build and easier to reload, so what would be a good negative? Accuracy?

Speeder scale damage makes for a fair adjustment to me.

4D standard damage becomes 6D against character scale targets. Makes it a natural choice for a 5D strength character like a wookiee.


I was always under the Impression that Speeder Scale gives a +4D Bonus??
