Hi,
I don't think its a big thing but the three shots that Mr Boone has been getting off in one go is a little wrong. They should be spaced out and not delivered all in one go as it is it seems to be killing creatures/cultists a little quicker then it maybe should.
Dex, half Dex and then the last shot at the end of the round.
Again thanks for releasing these as they are always entertaining even when it gets difficult to know who the real monsters are, The speedboat murders :o

Shhh! Don't tell the Keeper I've got an illegal weapon!

You are, of course, entirely correct. I've let it go, and will continue to do so, because I don't want this scenario to get bogged down in the technical combat. I've also vastly simplified the way the nerve whips operate, and a few other things, for the same reason. It certainly gives Mr. Boone an advantage in combat, but given that we have still had four (spoiler) character deaths to date I think it all evens out.

Glad you are finding this campaign entertaining. I certainly am as well. I've said it before, but it bears repeating - despite the poor editorial quality, this is quite an enjoyable campaign.
