ugh, i remember that well, and the scenario books that FASA put out
making it cannon.. and don't forget that when in a Dropship in space
wearing elemental armor (forget about how having a 6-foot tall person
suiting up in a power-assisted chassis ment ofor an 8-foot Elemental
wihtout significant modifications will snap so many bones like kindling
when powered-up) your weapons will only blast-through bulkheads when you
want them to.. speaking of power-armor, is it just me or are the Sloth
and the other one i can't remember the name of tow of the most useless
PA types anyhere or what?
