  1. Hi Is there any bricks and mortar scheme for when you buy your RPG books from FLGS and then can get the PDF for free. Lots of rpg games companies do it as a way to keep folk buying from these shops, but does FFG do this?
  2. I think its a massive oversight by FFG that they talk all about duty being integral to the players, but have nothing about how it is increased. You would have thought an errata or special published bit about duty (unless I have missed it) somewhere.
  3. I am not sure why this guy isn't disqualified. Whether he was going to win hands down or not is irrelevant, changing the dial after the planning phase is an illegal move. You cannot use psychobabble to say "it's ok because he did it subconsciously" because that doesn't wash (expand this to shootings etc - doesn't wash there either). Cheating is cheating, he made a mistake in planning, thats part of the game. I have made loads of bumbles in games, won some lost some - thats part of it. It's great when a good opponent makes a mistake you both know there has been a bumble, and you hope to capitalise. A really good player (probably wouldn't have bumbled) should be able to come back from one mistake though
  4. is this a remake because I already own Doom the Boardgame https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/10640/doom-boardgame
  5. Go for the colours thats the easiest way, so call Green, Orange or Blue. If you know the game and have played a lot you know the various plots of the characters, if not then this is the easiest way
  6. quite a few European distributors have had copies, so you should be able to get a copy at reasonable shipping. I am still waiting for mine
  7. I think the dates are left deliberately vague. My personal view is that it's this current century though from the stuff I have read - not got my copy yet though
  8. I have used Savage Worlds - Interface Zero for the adventure I have written for this game, it works quite well in the main, just need to tweak here and there some of the lingo. (I never got to play so had to write my own just for the fix)
  9. Any idea why this was cancelled by amazon UK? We regret to inform you that we have been unable to source the following item: "The End of the World: Alien Invasion" http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1633442373 Our supplier has informed us that this item is no longer available. This item has now been cancelled from your order #204-0343480-7205106 and we can confirm that you have not been charged for it. Is it not going to make it to the UK pre christmas?
  10. Looking to use the gumshoe system, probably ashen stars, but I will be playing for a change not running it.
  11. Dark Side are not necessarily evil, just more prone to strong emotional responses. It can be seen in some ways as the lesser of 2 evils, or the quickest root to success. Example - an imperial officer is planning to execute 10 innocent civilians. A LS paragon may look to rescue the 10 civilians at great personal risk, where a DS paragon may deal directly with the source, ie the officer. DS does not mean frothing berserker texas chainsaw massacre leatherface style person. Look at Palpatine - no-one recognised him as an evil master sith lord darksider.
  12. IIRC you can get +21 / -21 morality at the start by making the selection instead of taking bonus xp / cash. Not sure what you are hoping to achieve. In relation to the conflict roll, not sure why the change. In any session there should be morally ambiguous choices all over the show, and in general even the "paladin" should be getting 2-3 points. If you are finding Conflict accrual to be slow, then change when the morality roll is made. Perhaps make rolls at set points in the adventure, end of an act/chapter, or perhaps end of the adventure.
  13. I would be exceedingly wary of allowing players to take Conflict instead of Strain. Firstly Strain is supposed to be a cheap disposable/renewable resource - whereas Conflict though in essence is reset session to session, has a potential permanence to it. There are many ways to take Conflict via role-playing - rewarding them with free Strain seems counter-productive. In relation to tempting the players, with the darkside- this is precisely what the force dice is for when the player makes the roll to use his Force Power but rolls black dots.... Other gains from their thoughts and actions should be enough. What you need to be careful of is the munchkins who want to go to the DS. This is the first SW RP where DS is not punished, and there are some benefits for the PC - not to mention 7/12 chance of getting focre points from the d12.
  14. Not sure I agree with you here, I would only consider the largest silhouette in any situation, presuming it took into account smaller silhouettes within it.
  15. My examples in relation to thermal detonators was to show that repetitive action should not generate the same levels of threat, and ultimately to support a cap though in the original post I didn't use numbers, which I indicated in a post later on. make a cap - as per my suggestions above, players shouldn't be getting over 10 really unless they blow up Alderaan repetitive actions of the same simply should not reward the same conflict - it's silly.
