I think this is great work, and have no constructive comments or feedback beyond this- well done!

I still prefer to use classic over SW for DL, but looking at the complexity of the diagram, as much as I love the crunchiness and detail, perhaps I ought to start using SW for pick-up games.

Still, I'd love to grab a copy of this and use it in my games as a player reference- is that OK?

How long did it take you to come up with it?

For a second, I thought the internet got crossed, and I landed at the Hackmaster forum. Oh Combat Matricies.

I'll have to show this to some friends of mine. Looks very through.

You've got some errors in there - the spelling of "surprised?" in box #2, for example, and it takes *5* wounds to die from head/guts in box #20.

I didn't read the chart in detail, but it looks good.

I have not yet tried SW. I look forwards to it.

Sure!

I spent a couple afternoons going though the rules, and making a primer (still needs a little work . . . see this forum someplace). I then made a 21 point combat procedure. I then printed them out, cut them up, and laid them out. Then I created the flowchart using Microsoft Visio . . . that took an afternoon. This is my first flowchart. I saved the file as a JPEG, created a photobucket account, and posted it (another first). Then I added 2 points. Next I need playtesting (we may play on Sunday).

Fixed, thank you!

I suggest putting the rule book's page number in each of the boxes as a reference. I see a few of the boxes already have this, but I'd put it in every box.

In your Called Shots box, you have an entry for "Hands, Hands, Feet"
"Something in the guitar case?"
"My guitar."
BLAM! BLAM! BLAM! BLAM! BLAM!

Promote the gaming industry! Whatever it takes.

Done. Good idea!

Got it, it was heads . . . I guess a monster can have multiple heads, but I changed it to head for now.

Very nice. How can I get a copy of this to print out?

One of the guys from my Sunday group printed out a nice copy from here somehow. I “right-clicked” on the picture, selected “Print Picture . . .”, and then fiddled around with my printers options to set it to “Landscape” . . . the result was crap. So I guess it all depends on your printer.

Hey that worked (didn't know I could do that), thanks a bunch.

Added in interrupting with a card up the sleeve. Do not forget to press the F5 key!
