Facing will be used in the Hex. At the end of your turn you choose a facing. As its a hex there will be 6 numbers, facing will be starting with front facing, which is one. Going clockwise is 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. 1, 2 and 6 are considered front facing, and have no impact on getting hit. Facing 3 and 5 is somewhat out of sight, being at the sides. Side hits have a +5% chance to hit. If you line up right in someones back, its a back shot, and it has a +10% to hit.

For each point of strength you have less than the amount needed to use the weapon you take a 15% penalty.
