Episode 423: All Washed Up


Battles are messy, particularly ones involving vehicles and artillery. You get bits of shrapnel and wreckage scattered all over the place. If you're a smart player, however, you can take advantage of this. Use it as cover, or a screen, or a distraction. Scrounge around and you can find discarded weapons to fill out your equipment list. Or valuable items you can sell for loot later.

If you're a smart GM, you can make bits of the wreckage be unexploded ordnance, or leaking radiation, or other fun things.
