Strandhogg Rules Modifications 2

I did some more thinking last night and I think I will modify the missile rules too.

Currently, cover gives a modifier to the shooter's roll to hit, which under this system means that instead of the missile hitting the cover covering the target (or the cover saving the target by taking the hit instead), it actually lands somewhere else. This gives the weird situation that cover makes it safer for a figure, but makes it liklier for his neighbours to be hit!

I think I will apply the modifiers for cover to the Defence roll instead. This should reduce the deadliness of missiles in the game.

Makes sence to me. I like your thinking.

+1 to hit basically makes the target less likely to be hit, the rest the same, and guy at the 10 spot safe!

Of course! That was rather silly of me. But we'll still go with the modifier to Defence since it's more narrative. :)
