Ok, I know the basics from page 329; 50 hp, 1 or 1d10 damage taken, depending on weapon, etc.
I had a few questions regarding swarms in combat, mostly guardian and disassembler swarms:
1) How fast do they move?
2) How visible are they? Without a nanodetector, can I look at all the tons of nanites and see a faint fog, or is it clear air until my armor starts dissolving for no apparent reason?
3) Is there a limit to the number of swarms that can overlap? Is it one of those things where they can share the same place, but you're either being dissolved by nanites or not?
4) How do they fly in space?
5) Do I need any special elements to feed my hives? Any guesses on capacity of hives or recharge rates?
