No, not the card game or bomber but the leather club filled with lead shot. Do we have rules for them floating round any of the books or just use the standard club damage? Someone's sleeping in front of the book cupboard so I can't check mine. :/

doubt there's an actual entry for it, i'd just say (str+1) M stun with a conceal of 8, sound about right to you?
edit: reach of 0 and price of 150 nuyen.gif

And here I thought I'd hear about everyone's favorite retiree.

(str+1)M seems a little high, doesn't it?

That's only slightly above punching damage isn't it?

Anyway, from SR3, p.275 there are two possible candidates...

Club: (STR+1)M Stun; Conceal 5; 10
Sap: (STR+2)M Stun; Conceal 8; 10

I'd go with sap, a "small, springy club, specially designed for concealability."

The words "blackjack" and "sap" are interchangeable.

So it would seem. M-W.Com actually gives "blackjack" as the definition of "sap" for that purpose.

So in other words: We have rules for them in the books.

I thought "Blackjack" was interchangable with "drop a cow on them?" wink.gif

I have no idea, but he is sorely missed here as well. frown.gif

Given that this is the final weapon he was working on designing, I think he was extracted from his work space by an elite hit team and has been forced to work non-stop (with a sleep regulator) to produce this.

Stranger things have been known to happen to our kith.

Actually, he got so sick of everyone hounding him for more updates that he retired from the online SR scene. He came back for a bit, but everyone just went back to hounding him, so he left again.

I figure he prolly just changed his name. That's what I would have done.

Run out of town by rabid gamer fanboys. rotfl.gif I just find that highly amusing in itself. Although I can understand if he didn't want to put up with the hassle.

I miss that Fygg Nuuton guy.

He was a hoot!

Personally, I think Fygg was suckier than a level 1 ranger with a dull knife and a badger animal companion.

how about a penguin companion that gets hit with snowballs?
