use for riding

Postby solvess » Wed Jul 07, 2010 5:03 pm

I was looking through the rule book and could not find the use for riding animals and vehicles.
What is the use for riding animals and piloting vehicles if there is one?

I'm no expert but on the table of example actions and use ratings some actions are "trivial" with NO use rating. For game purposes, a lot of actions are quite trivial, for instance, driving a vehicle. Moving a vehicle around is a lot less difficult than firing and aiming one of its weapons, so for game purposes, attacking has a use rating and moving has none.

However, note that "driving" is STILL an action, and typical minifigs can only execute ONE action per turn. That is why the Pilot skill is introduced, making it much easier to carry on with the game. The person can shoot and move a vehicle at the same time and call it one action.

Now I think you could introduce use ratings on operating a vehicle in some circumstances, say a caveman trying to operate an alien hovercraft. He has no idea what he's doing, so failing a skill roll on just moving the hovercraft might make him uncontrolably crash it into something, shoot off a random weapon, or enter self destruct mode.

I see there is no use rating for driving a vehicle but if there doing something difficult beyond the normal call of duty when driving it requires a skill roll.

Yes, I agree with that.
