Would you be against me or someone creating marine NPCs that are in the Raiders? Not much game mechanics; just a pic/description; so background and there MOS? Just wondering.
This is something I have given much thought to. However I don't want things to get to bogged down, so I'm thinking descriptions for them would have to be very simple, along the lines of those found in the key NPC sections, possibly even more abbreviated.
Let me ponder this some more, since in the near future something that would utilize this is in the works, and I'm still hashing out the logistics in my head. But to give something of a reply I can see a format like this working…
- OCC / MOS:
The reason why much of the other fluff isn't needed is because I'm using the Modern Army Stats found in the Rifter. This gives a blanket bonus to strike for unit vs unit combat, and those values make a fine benchmark for smaller groupings.
I'd also likely just have those NPC's be those found in your characters immediate unit. The rest of the herd would be covered by the blanket unit stats and level average. (in this case 4th for Echo Company)
Here is what I tossed together.
So mover to make notes on them as well.
