Planet Mercenary

Planet Mercenary is a sci-fi RPG about space mercenaries based on the excellent Schlock Mercenary webcomic. It is supposed to be fun, fast and funny. I have the PDF, the hardcopy edition ships in July. So, technically, the game isn't out yet and I already have house rules…

New Command Packages
Senior NCO- Whether they call you Sergeant Major, Gunnery Sergeant, Senior Master Chief or "Bosun", or even just plain "Sarge"; you are the glue that holds a unit together. You work with the officers but are not one of them, lead the troops and care for them, but never baby them. When the going gets tough, everyone, even the officers, knows they can rely on you for advice based on your years of experience at the sharp end. You are the keeper of tradition for your unit; turning civilian brats into soldiers and even officers. Bonus Skill Ranks- +2 Inspire or Intimidate, +2 History (Military), +2 to any two combat skills

Ranged Combat
There are no rules for range penalties! I will probably use the Advantage/Disadvantage bonus/penalty charts and may have to make up some charts. I don't want to make a chart with a range for each weapon, but I feel I may have to.
