Bomb Ashigaru

bomb.jpgA variant of Yari Ashigaru, a unit of Bomb Ashigaru consists of a group of conscripted peasants, given basic military training and light armor, then equipped with void bombs. Though their concentrated barrage of bombs is devastating, they are unable to properly defend themselves, and their munitions are unstable, liable to damage the squad and those near them before the enemy if not handled properly.

Special: Concentrated Barrage, Expensive Munitions, Volatile Munitions

Concentrated Barrage: The more units in a bomb ashigaru squad, the more effective their void bombs are. A squad of 50 bomb ashigaru adds a +70 to the MR check associated with the void bomb explosion. This bonus decreases by 10 each time the squad suffers enough losses to incur the normal -20 penalty to attack.
Expensive Munitions: Void bombs are expensive to manufacture, and, unlike other weapons, must be purchased separately before they can be used by the squad. 1 power equips a squad of 50 bomb ashigaru with 1 bomb each, which is consumed when they attack. A squad of bomb ashigaru may carry up to 5 bombs per member at any one time.
Volatile Munitions: Void bombs are unstable, and, under strenuous conditions, may explode unexpectedly. Each time a bomb ashigaru squad loses one or more units, roll 1d10 for each individual who was lost. Any die that results in a 1 indicates a void bomb has exploded, with the normal effects on anyone in the radius. If multiple void bombs explode, resolve them as a single effect with a bonus to the MR difficulty based on the number of explosions.
