Oh, and finally: is there any smoke grenade in the setting, or are they useless because rephaim can "see through" the smoke (infravision). I have no idea if infravision can be blocked by smoke. Can it be blocked by mist? Or by smoke from a fire (fire should block it, I guess)? Does infravision work in hot deserts?


Smoke grenades and artillery rounds are in the Update volume, along with lots of other goodies.

It isn't blocked by mist or smoke as they provide Bad Lighting modifiers, which Infravision is specifically designed to oppose. It would still work in hot deserts -- heat-producing lifeforms would either be hotter or colder than the ambient temperature as fasr as the game is concerned. Remember, it's meant to be FFF. Smile


There are modern smokes that block infrared and thermal. The most common artillery smoke (for quick build up) is White Phosphorus, which will also block infrared and thermal due to the large amount of heat generated.

And would probably be a great way of dealing with hordes of undead, because of the incendiary effect.

Thanks a lot for the info, I really have to read through the 'Update' - and maybe use modern 'White Phosphorus' as an addition Smile
