(Answered) Society Random Skills Modifier
« on: 05 July 2022, 07:50:10 »
On Page 3 of The Wars of Reaving Supplemental, in the Society Unit Definition Chart, BattleMech and vehicle units are listed as having a -1 roll modifier when rolling on the Random Skills Table (TW p. 273). Is this applied additively to the existing +2 (BattleMech) and -2 (vehicle) modifiers for Clan forces?

So, in other words, do Society BattleMech units have a +1 modifier, and vehicle units a -3 modifier, or do both simply have a flat -1 modifier?

The Society isn't the same faction as typical Clan warriors, so the two bonuses are separate and not stacked. As you said:

"both simply have a flat -1 modifier."
