    Questons about Enemy Abilities and New Test Rules

    Yes DJ, The rules do state to get as may pips as possible. However, the rules reference book gives the rules on all tests. First you roll the dice, then do the re-rolls and then resolve the results. You don't add the rolls together. So when doing tests with no success condition (like Test P C I L), you count the last roll and follow the card to see what happens. The maximum number of pips you can roll is 6. As to the Gold Mine, it is possible (however unlikely) to have 1000 caps. The rules reference says there are no limits to how many caps a survivor can have and in another place it says you can use a viable substitute if there are no remaining tokens. I also went through the card library and saw there were no other references to the gold mine. See Caps, Component Limitations and Tests in the Rules Reference for verification if you like.

    Questons about Enemy Abilities and New Test Rules

    DJ, I also had the question about the Mirelurk Queen. From the responses I was given, the best way you can defeat it is ranged attacks (which gives you a free hit), using drugs (like buffout, mentats, day tripper and calmex), fragmentation grenades, having certain companions, laying traps or using perks (like ricochet and nerd rage) which give you extra hits or instantly kill enemies. Even some weapons allow you to give an extra hit or lower the enemy's level. For the first question, you take the total number of pips after the rerolls (if any) just like regular tests where you have a number of pips to get to pass. I hope this helps you out with the questions you have.

    Is the Mirelurk Queen killable?

    I won't. Thanks for the tip.

    Thanks for that tip. I forgot all about the extra hit with ranged and about the drugs. Haven't had a game with the expansion or explored all of the new cards yet either.

    Is the Mirelurk Queen killable?

    Unboxed my copy of Fallout New California expansion today and saw that the Mirelurk Queen is lvl 3 and has the shield icon. I take this to indicate that you need four hits to kill it. Having a look through the base game rules however, I saw that you can only use each of the three dice to score one hit. Am I misinterpreting the rules or is this monster truly unkillable?
