Hello, I was wondering if an ruling has been made about vehicles type of like "tanks" and "airplanes". For example I was thinking the main vehicle (a tank) would get it's stats, then a driver would get it's stats and a gunner would get it's stats. But if the driver or gunner gets "killed" by an allies then a enemy on foot could take over said position. Plus, I was wondering about robotic vehicles and would just get their single stats or would they need some thing else? 

I guess the other main thing is how one would make a battle map/grid? I am thinking some one might have to make some sort of tutorial on how to make one. Because at this time I am sort of drawing a blank and I figured it might help other people out. 

No rules on vehicles yet, currently I don't think we're planning on PC's owning their own ships or at least not making them a big part of quests. Plus vehicle combat is a whole other system that will require a lot of planning. Right now I think the focus is more on the RPG aspect and less on the tactical war game aspect of the game.

Regarding battle map/grids. You can go as basic as Excel or Google Sheets, photoshop, or there's plenty of mapping apps out there like Dungeon-Scrawl, Inkarnate, or Dungeon-Draft. Alternatively, as previously mentioned, I'd like to implement some sort of creator's guild where players can submit assets like NPC/enemy portraits, battle maps, or scenery photos, that can be used by other DM's in return for XP that can be spent on the character. Overtime, potential DM's could possibly put a quest together just based on community created content alone.

Would you mind explaining Discord to me? I'm completely unfamiliar with the platform.

Whoops, I'm sorry for not seeing this sooner!

Basically, Discord is a structured chat platform. I can supply images of you want, but you can probably search those up yourself. Essentially, a good discord server will have multiple different 'channels,' in different categories. So, in this instance, you could have a category about say, planning game mechanics and a separate category for lore decisions, and perhaps even a separate category for art or figbarfs or whatever. Within each of these categories you could have specific channels: a mechanics category could have a channel for discussing player build, or combat, or weapons, etc. You could mute any channel or category you don't want to be involved with, and have easy, categorized discussions that have less ideas speaking over each other. An admin can 'pin' posts as well, meaning important developments can be easily accessed for later. The search bar also functions a lot better than the Eurobricks search function, and you can choose to search for key terms in the entire discord server, or just a specific channel or category. 

I don't know, that was a lot of words, I hope that makes sense.

@The Legonater

That sounds excellent, especially as it would be easier for more people to involve themselves in the project. My only question is if it's possible to have private channels, as the PM we're currently using has started diving into setting secrets that we might not want to reveal to everyone.

Yes, I'm part of a gaming discord and we have private DM channel that the rest of the players can't see.

Right then, do we want to do this? (For those who haven't been following the discussion 'this' is setting up a discord channel for lore and rules development.)

I can set one up if that'd be helpful. Might be more profitable than the google doc we've got going.

I am not sure at this time. Plus if we have to install something on our phone. I need to get a new phone at some point. And the one I got doesn't seem to have enough memory to even upload a picture (or two). Any advice on a good cheap phone would be helpful.

Phone not required, you can run Discord from your computer.

Well, that is not to much better for me. I still have to go to the library and use one of their computers' for an internet connection (with a computer).

I figured it was better to share this here since it came from here. But is this some of things "we" are looking for?

Some of it would fit well, some of it's a bit heavy on the sci-fi side. Thanks for the link. :)
