(Answered) Mech Mechanical Jump Boosters and Jumping Down
« on: 17 December 2023, 21:48:55 »
TO:AUE - Page 105 lists the limitations of 'Mech jump boosters as "cannot change facing" and "cannot DFA".

BMM - Page 116 (equipment section) lists the same limitations; the block appears copy-pasted from TO:AUE

BMM - Page 17 (movement section) lists an additional limitation; the mech cannot jump down levels

So it's unclear if they can jump down levels or not, as the two sources describing the equipment don't say anything about it (act as normal jumpjets except for...) and only the movement paraphrase does.

TO also mentions the "cannot jump down" rule, but it was mistakenly only added to the Battle Armor version, not the mech version.  So that needs to be corrected.  And yes, the BMM entries should be consistent.

Errata will be entered for both to clarify that you can make the jump, but it just results in a normal fall.
