Just a couple of questions for clarification.

1. If I fire a single chaser cannon, my understanding is that is a single D12 roll and it hits on odds. Does that mean an 18pdr chaser against a 5th rate at 200 yds only hits on a 1 or 3?

2 . If I have the single chaser cannon and I only roll one D12 to hit, what do I do if I need 1/2 to hit? Does the 1 = .5 round down meaning that you can't fire a single cannon if its a 1/2 to hit?

3. In the example in the book, Page 1-13, it says at 1200 yds against a 5th rate cast 2 dice since 1/2 5 is 2. That makes sense, but, what is the number needed to hit? 1? You roll the 2 dice, but what is the number needed to hit?

I'm not sure if I'm asking these correctly. Please let me know if you need clarification on what I'm asking. Thank you.
