Default What is a Pie Plate?

I have heard the term "pie plate" when referring to ordnance. Could some one explain to me what is meant by this as I have only heard of the the regular templates that are shown in he rule book. Am I missing something?

See the 5" template? That's the pie plate.

It's confusing, I just refer to them as Ordnance Templates. If you can't be bothered to type it out then your lazy :P And it actually confuses loads of new players.

I think that it is actually called the "large blast" marker template now?

Yes, large blast template, officially the ordinance blast template.

Large Blast Template, I think, though both are used interchangeably.

Call it the Large Blast Template, since several non-ordinance weapons use it.
