Edit: Sorry for this …my original post below is rather confusing. Chalk it up to no sleep in last 48 hours. What I’m trying to ask is really two questions:
- Generally, how do people find the energy weapon combat in the game? Is it very lethal or not so much?
- Has anyone ever had their players or NPCs make deliberate use of the disintegrate settings on phasers or disruptors?
Thanks for patience.
This may have already been answered in playtest but how lethal do people find the combat rules, in particular the use of hand phasers and disruptors which seem capable of casually disintegrating people? The only mention of it I see in the rules is that I can use my GM authority to rule that a dead character is disintegrated. Has anyone had occasions where their players used the disintegrate settings deliberately? I am interested in my players having the full range of options Starfleet personnel have but am wondering about some of the tactical options inherent in a box the size of my cellphone that appears capable of taking the top off a mountain at ten klicks…
