Does Hell Hath No Fury use 4E or Compendium rules?

Postby Pzrjager » Thu Oct 11, 2018 4:51 am

NUTS! 4th Edition and the NUTS! Compendium have some big difference in the rules.

In the Compendium, you take a "Crisis Test" if you are shot at but not hit. To those unfamiliar, basically you roll to pass your Rep to see if you Duck Back or even Hunker Down.
In 4E, you don't take a Crises Test if you're shot at. You return fire unless you're Hunkered Down, Leaving the Battlefield, or already returned fire.
I thought Hell Hath No Fury used the 4E rules, but I noticed they use the same Crisis Test rule when you're fired on.

1) Why was the Crisis Test fired-on rule used in HHNF, removed in 4E, then added again in the Compendium? I thought the Compendium sort of "streamlined" the 4E rules further, so I'm wondering why an older rule was re-introduced.

2) If I read how to use vehicles in 4E, what do I need to read to play Hell Hath No Fury?

Thank you!

I looked again and I see now that 4E came out a month after the Compendium. Does that mean 4E actually has the more streamlined NUTS! core rules compared to the Compendium?

Correct, NUTS 4E came out after Compendium.

Ed,

A few questions
Will FNG include counters and battle boards?
Will FNG be more NUTs! 4E or ATZ EVO in mechanics?
