It should. Buuuuut even without your Aide, you've taken no mental stress from that, so it'll make no difference one way or the other.

Nothing wrong with monologuing, in moderation. But when you start dangling people over shark pits, then you know you're going too far.

Then he'll need to start Villains Anonymous or something.

...you know, under the circumstances, I don't think I'll charge Nate that Fate point for that declaration.

The locals are familiar with explosives?

I'm not satisfied with my post, but I had to post something and it took me forever to figure out what to say.

Well, they have a word for it, at least.

And with Ortzel agreeing to go home and rethink his life (or at least his denial of magic, in all its forms), it's time for the big battle!

Everyone ready? Good!

Roughly how much rifle and machine gun ammo are the players carrying on the trucks? Are there at least three or four 200 round cases for the MMG?

You're not going to run out of bullets unless (a) it's dramatically appropriate, or (b) Nate uses his "One Shot Left" stunt. And, absent magical or Seeker shenanigans, you definitely have more than enough to deal with an army of this size.

--------------

Kajin, is Felix planning on starting out on top of the walls with his grenade launcher, or poking a machine gun out of an arrow slot (there are plenty of arrow slots around)? Or something else?

Felix will start atop the wall with his grenade launcher.

Gyargh. I looked, but I missed that. Will fix.

Brief note on the machine gun: full sized armor piercing rifle bullets (standard MG ammo) aren't stopped by the first man they hit, or even necessarily the second. Each is punching holes through several ranks of men (in real life, they can shoot through foot thick trees and still kill the people behind them). Also worth note; even if they want to advance, a man who's been shot two or three times in not-immediately-lethal parts of the torso in less than a third of a second can't. The wound shock will drop him, will he or nil he. Think of it as being hit with 7.62mm buckshot; functionally the damage is very similar.

One final, and kinda grim, note; Arkady doesn't need to see what he's shooting. The causeway is packed and the targets functionally immobile. If he empties a belt or two into it he can't miss. This is, in fact, the situation in which a modern weapon actually achieves it's theoretical lethality.

As for shooting catapults; I believe he's using that .50 to shoot the throwing arms. Put one of those rounds through that down around the torsion element and that weapon will be out of service.
