    Ya I think Protect/Unleash is exactly what you are looking for. The protect portion works exactly like tutaminis.

    (if you have 4 willpower and 4 ranks of strength the minimum amount of damage you can reduce energy weapon damage by is 9.... the STRONGEST lightsabers deal only 10 damage and are energy based). You can even use it as an out of turn incidental like shown in the fight between Satele and Malgus.

    Maybe related, maybe not, but one of my peeves is when I hear someone use the word "space" as a prefix or qualifier to describe something.
    Examples:
    "I ask for a space whiskey."
    or
    "Is there a space Walmart around?"

    Donate those stolen Imperial weapons and armor to the rebellion for covert actions. Maybe they have something to trade for it that you would like to have. Use the crafting rules and modify the appearance. Or just use and ditch it. Have fun.

    orcface999 reacted to Kualan in [Updated 1ST JUNE 2019] Custom NPC Cards - The Clone Wars   
    I recently came across theDearth2's card template (found here: https://community.fantasyflightgames.com/topic/91959-the-dearth-presents-npc-vehicles-and-starships-custom-card-template/ ) and as someone who has bought all the official Adversary Decks and finds them to be a great quick reference tool I decided to go ahead and make some custom cards for characters from the Clone Wars.
    These stats are mostly my own (though it includes some from Rise of the Separatists sourcebook and beyond). For the iconic characters I have looked to the stat blocks found in various era books for guidance on scale and balance. Feedback welcome on all fronts.
    As of  1st June 2019 there are 186 Adversaries and Vehicles statted up - some are official stats, but the majority are ones of my own creation. A couple of examples:

    I've tried to group them up in themes as best as I can. You can find them as 3 x 3 sheets on the below links or you can download the full archive as individual cards.
    LINKS TO THE 3 X 3 SHEETS:
    JEDI ORDER A
    JEDI ORDER B
    JEDI ORDER C
    JEDI ORDER D
    REPUBLIC MILITARY
    REPUBLIC NAVY
    REPUBLIC SENATE
    SEPARATIST LEADERSHIP
    SEPARATIST MILITARY A
    SEPARATIST MILITARY B
    LAND BATTLE A
    BOUNTY HUNTERS A
    BOUNTY HUNTERS B
    CRIMINAL UNDERWORLD A
    DATHOMIR AND RYLOTH
    NABOO AND TRADE FEDERATION
    DEATH WATCH AND MANDALORIAN PROTECTORS
    NEW MANDALORIANS AND MALASTARE
    MON CALAMARI BATTLE
    ONDERON INSURRECTION
    PANTORA AND QUARZITE

    orcface999 reacted to whafrog in How long does Star Wars RPG campaign last for?   
    In this game, the trick to longevity is encouraging the players to go for breadth.  Cap their attributes at 5, cap their skills at 4, encourage them to start other talent trees.  If you do that you'll easily be able to play well past 1000XP.
    Edit:  I should mention that there are several ways to "encourage" them to branch out, one of which is to scramble who gets to do what.  Sometimes the slicer is busy and somebody else has to step in and get the computers running; sometimes the tough guy has to hold the blast doors open while the diplomat covers everyone's retreat.  The quickest way to boredom is for everybody to only do the things they are good at.  And if the players see that they had better be good at more than one thing, they will naturally want to branch out.

    orcface999 reacted to schuwa in Cinematic Events - Looking for more ideas   
    I am running a F&D game for my family, ages 6, 8, 12, and 43, and I came up this idea called cinematic events that my kids are enthralled by.  At the beginning of an Act (which is usually 1-3 sessions), each player is handed a sealed envelope that says something along the lines of "Open when <insert condition here>"  
    For example, "Open when the auxiliary power kicks in"
    It's vague enough that they don't know what is going to happen, but specific enough that when the event occurs, it's obvious when to open it.
    And usually, it culminates in them getting to do something cinematic or cool.  In the above example, I was reading some text about how the ship's power died and the auxiliary power came on-line (which caused the player to open the envelope).  I didn't stop reading the GM text, which ended with me saying, "And that's when you realize..."
    And the envelope contained a piece of paper that read: "When the GM says 'And that's when you realize...', finish the sentence out loud to the group with '...It's a Trap!'"
    Since this immediately jumped into a starship dramatic combat scene, you can imagine everyone thought this was a hoot and a great nod to the genre.
     
    The point of this lengthy post is I am looking for more ideas for classic Star Wars stuff that will lend itself well to these cinematic events.  What should be in a future envelope?  What phrases can players use? Or what other things can go into these envelopes?  For example,  I've had blurred photos for visions that PC's get.  Any ideas, including props, are welcome.

    orcface999 reacted to Tesoe in Star Wars Doesn't Have ______   
    Some solid advice I think. And all consistent with what they show on screen. Except for the ID bit. The empire, and republic before it, definitely had a way of ID people and had records of who they were, where they lived, and what job they had, and a photo. That kind of thing comes up quite a few times the shows.
