I was pretty vocal, when BFK came out, about what I saw as the inadequacies of the ground combat rules that they contained. I had been hoping for something more like that represented in The Frozen Reaches, and was sadly dissapointed.
Over the months that have past, I spent a lot of time thinking about what I would put in place when I need to include this in a game. As my ideas bubbled forth I decided it would be worth getting some of the ideas down on paper, as it were. While I am nowhere near finished (more than 18 pages, but several of them tables...) I thought it would be worth letting those in the community that were interested have a look and give me some feedback.
I've had a lot of discussion with a math wiz friend about the numbers, etc. He is adamant that I need to have at least 2 numbers to represent each unit (firepower and armour, or their equivalents) but I am determined to keep the simplicity I saw in The Frozen Reaches. But any comments or suggestions are welcome.
Note that I only just uploaded the document and that google docs has messed up all my careful formatting, so that is the first thing I will fix.
