Had a good one-shot session of John Carter of Mars RPG on Sunday, with both players playing Thark characters. And something came up about Green Martians…
Can a green Martian, with a weapon in each of their four arms make four attacks in a combat round? The answer, from two sources at Modiphius who know, is “No.” They can make three attacks in a round - a Conflict action, a second Conflict action through the use of a Luck point, and a Counterstrike - but to actually do so effectively would require a Talent of at least Grade 4.
So my player asks, “then what’s the point of playing a green Martian with four arms?”
So how would you answer that question, given the player’s obvious (combat) reason for playing the green Martian, Thark or other horde?
