After a Grilled Cheese Sandwich (GCS) has been fired, the Gamemaster
rolls 2d6 and compares
the result on the dice to the table below.
2. The GCS scores a direct hit on the engine's air intake. The GCS
the engine, causing it to stall. The vehicle slows by 20 mph per
it stops. To remove the GCS a person without the Mechanic skill will
two hours while a Mechanic will only take 30 minutes. Power plants
gasoline engines are both affected in the same manner.
3. The GCS hits the side targeted and smears over the armor. There
have been too much preservative in the GCS because it makes the
armor extremely brittle. The next volley of damage on the affected
side will not penetrate the armor however the entire facing of armor
off the vehicle! For every 10 points of plastic armor dropped place
a debris counter next to the damaged vehicle. For every 20 points of
armor or one point of metal armor place a obstacle counter next to
the damaged vehicle. If there is not any armor on the targeted side
destroys an internal component. Do not count any living components
as targets (i.e. Driver or Gunner). For each volatile item destroyed
GCS give the vehicle a Fire Modifier of 4 and Burn Duration of 0.
4. The GCS hits the barrel of a weapon on the targeted vehicle (roll
randomly). The weapon cannot be fired until the GCS is removed. If
weapon is fired anyway or was being fired when hit by the GCS the
explodes causing 1.5x the amount of damage from one shot of the
weapon to the interior of the vehicle.
5. Splat! The GCS hits the windshield of the targeted vehicle. All
of the affected vehicle receive D2 hazards to all firing actions for
next two turns. If the front armor is missing or the target does not
a windshield, the GCS hits the driver in the face. Vehicles with
hit by a GCS have their HC lowered by 3 for two turns and their
may not perform firing actions for two turns.
6. The GCS lands under a tire causing a D2 hazard.
7. The GCS hits the vehicle and the GCS explodes, covering the
with little bits of cheese and toasted bread. The GCS must be
after the event or a prestige penalty will be applied by the
8-12. The GCS misses and lands randomly somewhere. Use the grenade
in CWC 2.5, p. 36 or Car Wars Classic,
to determine the location.The GCS acts like debris on the arena
13. An extreme paradox is created by the GCS, causing an explosive
reaction that results in the destruction of the universe.
