comment Third-Person Limited Narration or Third-Person Omniscient Narration?
@LeguRi, that'd be my choice. I didn't want to mention it and appear pedantic or obstinate. :)

comment Third-Person Limited Narration or Third-Person Omniscient Narration?
@LeguRi, fair enough, I just thought I should point it out. It'll tend to confuse people who know the term from elsewhere, but there's no reason it can't have a different connotation with RPGS. You're a trailblazer! :)

comment Third-Person Limited Narration or Third-Person Omniscient Narration?
I don't think you mean unreliable narration. What you mean is close first-person narration. An unreliable narrator is one that changes his story, lies and otherwise lacks credibility. Unless I'm really misunderstanding, what you're talking about is a GM who only tells the players what their PCs experience--not a GM that gives an unreliable description of what their PCs experience.

That's depressing. You'd think a game set in the modern era would be able to model this situation better than requiring PCs to take a level in an advanced class.

comment Can a vehicle make a reflex save to avoid damage from Autofire?
@mxyzplk, your interpretation is correct! There's a Bullet Points article on the WotC site that answers this exact question and the WotC staffer says the vehicle is, in fact, an attended object (wizards.com/default.asp?x=d20modern/bp/20040217a). I'm going to accept your answer now. Thanks for that.

There is a rule regarding unattended objects and saving throws. The question seems to be whether a vehicle is or isn't attended. So far I think it's unattended and mxyzplk thinks it is attended. Break the impasse!

Exteriors is a translation of "outsider", I'm guessing.

What is the language in the actual book? I'm still tracking down a copy.

Does auto fire ignore bonuses from cover? AFAIK a tank gives 100% cover.

Follow up question: if the driver makes his Drive check and the vehicle saves vs Autofire, would the occupants also be exempt from the effects of Autofire? Tricky, ain't it?

I like your Drive check idea, however I'm not sure I agree with you that a vehicle fits the definition of an attended object. Mainly because a vehicle provides cover for the occupants. Thus it's got less in common with an item, and more in common with a piece of scenery. On the other hand: Tower Shield! I'm undecided...
