  1. Great job has always.
    Without having access to any references, and just by looking at the picture, should the 6 lasers not be 3 twin-liked instead?

  2. Right, so I’ve searched a bit in the d20 sources, d6 sources and wookiepedia. It seems all list 6 cannons, but the image as you point out shows three emplacements. There could be various ways to handle this, but I think that making the linked cannons is a good idea. First off I can’t find it in any d20 sources, but I have not gone through them very thoroughly – but the d6 version lists 6 cannons, but the image is the same as I’m using from wookiepedia. I can’t remember the d6 rules for fire-linked weapon systems, but as far as the image goes I think twin-linking them is a good idea. Less rolling, and harder hitting. Mhm.
