Re: Appointment of Confessors

Just a point about appointments based on some planets being more at "risk" of heresy; in MotJ, it states the Church treads very lightly on Leagueheim so other planets like pre-Li Halan conquest Rampart might also have very little influence of the Church. I can also imagine many of the chur...

Re: Muster ranged combat style

I'm glad to read we are of a similar mind when it comes to the thoughts on the muster firing style including suppression fire rules. Perhaps a bonus to the will check when entering an area under suppression fire?
