Hmm, just noticed the in-game help is largely silent on the issue of cover (or maybe I was just too careless to see it). At any rate, what are the rules for cover now? I remember at one stage you could get a bonus from having one or two resistance members nearby, or something like that. Does that still hold?

Or is that "to kill"?  Hmm.

It's possible it did more in the past, I don't remember, but what it does right now is that a resistance member's % chance of getting hurt by simply being on a tile at the end of the turn is reduced by the presence of other resistance members within 2 or 3 tiles (I forget the distance).  Stacks up to 3 times.

Ah. OK. But I don't see that mentioned when I check the help text (I did find an outdated reference, though: http://www.arcengames.com/mantisbt/view.php?id=11988).
