Re: [dragwars] Launch of the sapper profession
- wasn't sure what exactly a sapper was until just after you sent this
email I finished watching Ironclad which I had started watching this
morning. Whoo boy!
Not sure about Sappers as a player character, but as an NPC they could
be very handy. Would be a pretty major scale battle though.
Has anyone gamed a large scale battle in Dragon Warriors before? I
imagine it would be pretty unwieldy and you'd need to go to another
system for any battle too large.

Thing is, I don't see how I can put practical figures as to the amount of ship point damage a sapper can do with a sledge hammer, or a screw driver, only that they do it better than other professions.

Watched black death with that sean bean guy. Terrain rules ought to be implemented! The guys waded through waist deep marshes... I mean, life can be interesting if you can put the players in that alien environment.
Sappers would be nasty if they can stay in the same location for some time. Thats the problem, they're not very mobile. Now we need someone to create the mounted archer, like the opposite of the sapper, master of open spaces...
I need to put some numbers but most of the time sappers are like original drag wars bk 5 elementalists. They're quite overpowered actually. Who needs dragon breath and two handed swords when you can build a fortress with so many anti personnel defences?....
