Over on TMP we are having a bit of a debate over the pros & cons of the "Fired Last Turn" -1 modifier:
Con: I'm trying to avoid too many factors and hang overs from previous turns – this cuts out all those debates about "Did they fire last turn?" And this helps streamline game play and over-continuous reference to the written rules.
Pro: Having said that points in keeping the Fired Last Turn negative modifier are; fire discipline diminishing quickly once volleying got underway and the use of black powder that diminished visibility. The modifier also encourages players not to fire both continuously or at "unrealistic" targets, so helps encourage period tactics which of course all add to the historical/tactical "feel" of the rules.
Would be interested to hear people opinions on this one.
