Composition History[edit]


Third New Samarkand Regulars (Regular)[1]

  • CO: Tai-sa Furio Saavedra


Up to 4 times per game, the player controlling the Third can choose to automatically succeed at any roll using the pilot’s Gunnery or Piloting Skill (considered to have hit the target number exactly). However, for each such success used, the opposing player can declare any other Gunnery or Piloting Skill roll to automatically fail (considered to be 1 below the target number). The decision to automatically succeed or fail must be made before the roll is thrown.[1]
