Last chance to make a suggestion/complaint

As a newb, I just found one last night. The rules on Movement and terrign are very confusing. On open ground a walker is x1 but on rough ground it is x2. Sooooo...it's twice as fast on rough ground than open? For all intents and purposes, it looks and reads like I should apply the modifier to the Mov, not that each inch requires that many more Mov. It took studying the example to really figure that one out last night.

It says right above the table that you're calculating the Cost of moving. The base cost for movement is 1 point of Mov = 1". So if you want to move your CAV over Rough Terrain, you take the cost of 1 times the multiplier (x2) and it costs you 2 Mov points to move 1".

 

To me it looks like the top header is the confusing part, it makes it look like that's the table's function instead of just a label for the next row of MClasses. I'll see what we can do.

The easier movement explanations I see talk about X being your movement rate and + or - Y being arithmetic bonus and penalty modifiers. Likewise * and / Z being your geometric bonus and penalty modifiers

 

Move rate X

modified by + - Y

modified by + - Z

 

Example:

Move rate 6"

modified by targetting/other mods -1 for <something>

modified by terrain /2 for rough terrain

 

or somesuch tomfoolery (apologies to tom)

 

It sort of ties into the psychology of + and * being seen as good things while - and / are negative...

 

Either I just made sense, or I'm tired and did a poor job... hopefully it made sense

 

okee,

If it actually said this, it wouldn't be confusing.

 

BTW, I did figure it out, just took a few minutes of puzzlement.
