Title: [Burning Empires] Cheat sheet for Firefight
Post by: tonyd on October 07, 2006, 04:00:06 PM
Whenever I play a new game, I create a number of cheat sheets for my own use. I have a very visual mind, and not a great memory, so the cheat sheets end up being pretty important. When we played Burning Wheel, my group kept bugging me to write up my cheat sheets and put them online, but I was worried that they wouldn't make any sense to anyone but me. So when Burning Empires came along, I decided to do up a few "deluxe" cheat sheets with all the whistles and bells.

Here's what I came up with for Firefight:

As a disclaimer, I designed it to be a standalone peice of artwork as much as a cheat sheet. It should still be functional, although others can probably judge that better than I can. I'm not sure anyone will acutally use it, but if they do, I'd love to hear how (whether) it worked and how it could be improved.

Hey Tony-

This is neat. I can definitely see this as being useful for players to get a grasp of the rules before the firefight goes down.

You should share on in the BE Wiki. (http://www.burningempires.com/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page)

peace,

Mayuran

LOL!  It's like HoL meets the Wheel.  I have to say, it prompts the eye to go through and follow the convolutions!  :-)

Tony I've meant to post it earlier, and just say that it's amazing! Thank you so much for this.

Thanks guys. It's awesome to hear people think your stuff is cool. :)  I'm going to post this and another cheat sheet I made for tests, resources, and circles on the Burning Wiki when I get a free momentl

Great. Have you got BW? I'd love to see similar sheet for Fight, Dow and range and cover... ;)

I did do some of these for my own use (not as fancy) back when we played BW, but I'm not happy with my Fight! sheet. Somehow I've never gotten the Fight rules down quite right.
