Moving this from the Rules & Errata Section

I am looking at the artwork of the Slag Heap (ROCC15 - FF16 area) and my eyes are too old. Is this a combination of Stone Rubble (CC15-CC16-DD14-DD15-DD16-DD17-EE15-EE16-EE17-FF14-FF15) and Debris (BB16-CC17-EE14-FF16-GG15)? Or, is all of this supposed to be Debris?

CC15, CC16, DD14, DD15, DD16, DD17, EE15, EE16, EE17, FF14, and FF15 are stone rubble.
BB16, CC17, EE14, FF16, and GG15 are Debris.

Just noticed something that might help players with this: All Ruble Hexes have a white colored Hex ID Font and all Debris Hexes have a black colored Hex ID Font on the RF/RB maps (Exc-Factory Debris Hexes). This will help ID the terrain type on the Slag Heap Hexes.

Are hexes AA45 & 46 on the Red October map a railway embankment (2.1) or a bridge? Or something else?

See SSR RF4.

RF4 RIVER & BRIDGES: The river (i.e., the Water Obstacle hexes along the east edge of the RO map and in the northeast corner of the RB map) is Flooded (B21.122), with a heavy current flowing south (B21.121). Hexes ROT3, ROY5, and RBCC31 contain a One-Lane (B6.431) wooden bridge; hexes ROAA45-AA46 contain a One-Lane stone RR bridge; all other bridges are two-lane stone.

Thanks Klas. Missed that.

Sorry another question - Factories with a triangular stairwell. The hexes with the stairwell go up to level 2. Do the other hexes go up to level 1.5 or 2.5?

It's all in rule O5.7.

5.7 SPLIT-LEVEL FACTORY: A Factory hex with a black center dot in a triangle stairwell symbol (EX: ROZ35) denotes a Split-Level Factory building hex. Each such hex is a 2½-level LOS obstacle, and while remaining part of the Factory is considered a multi-story building (B23.23) hex for all [EXC: SSR CG11 (11.4)] purposes (i.e., has cellar-, ground-, 1st, and 2nd-level Locations and +3 TEM and can be Gutted [10.2]) rather than a Factory hex. All other hexes of the Factory have only ground-level Locations [EXC: rooftop Locations exist normally] and are a 1½-level obstacle. Factory Interior Walls (5.3) shared with a Split-Level Factory building hex (EX: ROW13-W14) are only a 1-level obstacle.


The exception being the Spinal Tap Factory - that goes up to Level 11. :D :D:D:D:D:D

Nice reference to Spinal Tap for the 35th Anniversary. Hitting the theatre to Tap into America on Saturday to see it on the big screen.
