Those are some hard questions! I could find the answers, but I'm feeling too lazy today to look things up.

I'm enjoying your blog. I posted about Command Post T on my blog to let other OGRE fans know about your OGRE material, so keep up the good work.

Thank you, Desert Scribe. Is your avatar a troll with sunglasses? Maybe a mutated Smurf? hehe
I know the questions are hard - but try to answer them without looking, see what your rank is.

My avatar is a xvart from the original Fiend Folio for first-edition AD&D.

Without looking, here are my guesses to the questions:

1. individual attacks give better odds, especially if you get a D on your first or second attack.

2. if it's in clear terrain, seven hexes from ground zero

3. 18 across by 22 up & down

4. 18 tread units/hex

5. 12 total attack strength

6. four dice damage

7. 60 tread units

8. size 5 or larger

9. 12 AP

10. The Last War started that year

How'd I do?
