SCENARIO SPECIAL RULES

THICKET
The 10 inch area on either side of the game table’s central line is a Saturation Zone for the duration of this game.

THE GRID
There are a total of 9 Antennas. One of them is placed in the center of the game table, with the next two placed on the central line of the table, 12 inches from the edges. The other six Antennas are placed in different halves of the game table. Four of them are placed 8 inches in parallel from the central line of the game table and 12 inches from the edges. The other two are placed 8 inches in parallel from the central line of the game table and 24 inches from the edges (see map).

Each Antenna must be represented by a Transmission Antenna Marker (TRANS. ANTENNA) or by a scenery piece of the same diameter (such as the Communications Array by Warsenal or the Sat Station Antenna by Customeeple).

DESIGNATE ANTENNAS (SHORT SKILL)

LABELS
Attack.

REQUIREMENTS
»»Only Specialist Troops can declare this Skill.
»»The Specialist Troop must be in base contact with an Antenna.

EFFECTS
»»Allows the Specialist Troop to make a Normal WIP Roll to Designate the Antenna. If the roll is failed, it can be repeated as many times as necessary, each time spending the corresponding Short Skill and making the roll.
»»The Designate Antenna Skill can be replaced by the Forward Observer Special Skill for troops that have it, applying their rules and requirements to obtain the same effect on this mission.
»»A Designated Antenna can be Designated again by the other player, applying the same procedure. In such a situation, the Antenna is no longer considered Designated by the adversary.
»»Once an Antenna has been Destroyed, it cannot be Destroyed again by any player.
»»Player A and Player B Markers can be used to mark the Designated Antennas. It is recommended each player uses a different kind of Marker.

 

DESTROY ANTENNAS
In this scenario, the Antennas have a Scenery Item Profile (see Infinity N3), so they can be targeted, applying the Scenery Structures rules, but not before the second Game Round.

An Antenna must have been previously Designated by a Specialist Troop of the same side before a trooper may Destroy it.

A player cannot Destroy an Antenna that does not have his Marker on it (PLAYER A or PLAYER B).

Players are not allowed to Destroy Antennas before the second Game Round.

A Designated Antenna which has been Destroyed still counts as Designated.

If a player performs an Attack that affects an Antenna (when using a Template Weapon, for example) that has been not previously Designated, or before the second Game Round, players do not apply the Scenery Structures rules and will not Roll ARM / BTS for the Antenna.

SPECIALIST TROOPS
For the purposes of this scenario, only Hackers, Doctors, Engineers, Forward Observers, Paramedics, and troops possessing the Chain of Command Special Skill are considered Specialist Troops.

Hackers, Doctors and Engineers cannot make use of Repeaters or G: Servant models to perform tasks reserved for Specialist Troops.

Remember: Troops with the Specialist Operative Special Skill can accomplish the different functions Specialist Troops have in this scenario.

A Specialist Trooper with a Disabled Marker can still accomplish the Objectives of this scenario.

DATATRACKER
At the end of the Deployment Phase, players must declare which troop from their Army List is the DataTracker. The trooper chosen must be always one of the models deployed on the game table. Players are not allowed to choose troopers in Hidden Deployment or in Marker state. This trooper must always be on the game table as a model and not as a Marker (Camouflaged, TO, Holoecho…). Also, Irregular troops and those whose Troop Type is REM are not eligible to be DataTrackers.

The DataTracker is identified with a DataPack Marker (DATA PACK).

DESIGNATED TARGET
In this scenario, the enemy HVT is considered an enemy trooper instead of a Neutral Civilian so, it can be targeted by Attacks. Killing the enemy HVT does not cause loss of the game nor gives compensatory Objective Points to the adversary.

HVTs will be reactive and hostile, reacting to any Order performed by an enemy active trooper in LoF or ZC.

KILLING
A trooper is considered Killed when he enters Dead state, or is in a Null state at the end of the game.

Troopers that have not been deployed on the game table at the end of the game, will be considered Killed by the adversary.

CLASSIFIED DECK NOT USED
Players will not use the Classified Deck in this scenario.

END OF THE MISSION

This scenario has a limited time frame, so it will automatically finish at the end of the third Game Round.

If one of the players starts his Active Turn in a Retreat! situation, the game will end at the end of that Turn.
