    Looks great, and look forward to seeing it completed as well.
    I have used your cards on and off as well, though I admit, we changed what you have for the "generic" Jedi Force Ratings (usually down by 1. Just can't see an average youngling with a FR 2 and an average knight with a 4, master and padawan we all thought was appropriate, but *shrug*).
    Either way, your work and effort are awesome. Thanks

    I can see what you are saying, but I disagree.
    The way I see most of the talents that require skill check, the talent is just a specified use of the skill. Something extra you can do with it beyond the base skill, but a skill check none the less. Therefore spending advantage/threat and triumph/despair are part of it as normal.
    But, if that works for your table, 👍.

    Both of you go sit on a lightsaber please! 🙄😋
    You two have derailed enough threads with your useless diatribe about armor.
    Neither will convince the other if anything. Which means both of you are being deliberately childish and disrespectful of the the OP by taking over their thread for useless antics.

    I for one have (and continue to) support Sturn's stuff. We've been using it for quite a while now.
    It seems like it's got lots of fiddly bits, but it's surprisingly easy to use after you actually get to it.

    Jareth Valar got a reaction from StriderZessei in The Rise of Skywalker (Spoiler thread)   
    Arrogantly and belligerently acting like he is the authority on all things Star Wars.
    Claiming he will never back down not ever wrong with his "knowledge". 
    Aggressively admonishing someone's opinion because it is obviously wrong (because he says it is).
    When he is proven wrong he latches on to a different aspect of the conversation to still armor to prove his superiority, often with even more bolding.
    Having the need to "win" every Star Wars "argument"(discussion or debate to the rest of the boards)
    Yeah, I will gladly call Troll.
    That doesn't mean that I haven't had decent dialog with him. I even agree on a few of his thoughts from time to time. That does not mean he isn't a troll.
    Now, back on topic. I actually enjoyed the movie. A bit predictable, but definitely enjoyable.

    This is another one that could go any number of ways, depending upon how it's interpreted.  The description does say "turns any article of clothing into Armored Clothing", which implies that the armor is transformed into Armored Clothing.  However, if it is truly transformed into a different type of armor, then armor such as Adverse Environmental Gear would would no longer have its "ignore setback" feature, for example, which doesn't make sense.  If existing features of the base armor should be kept, then it's not really being changed into Armored Clothing, but only being given Armored Clothing's stats.  If the encumbrance should be changed, then it would have noted that in the attachment table that lists it, which implies that the encumbrance remains the same.  Which, in turn, implies that it's not an actual transformation.  But on the third hand (you need to be a Besalisk to ponder this, I guess), maybe setting the encumbrance to 3 is implied by the fact that it's "turned into" Armored Clothing.   And why am I envisioning Vizzini from "The Princess Bride" explaining this right now?  Inconceivable!
    It might be interesting to hear from the devs on what their intention was for this attachment.

    @OggDude You know what I would love to see? a Folio Cover page that could have a different character image and basic details about the character.

    Since I've decided to incorporate the upcoming Season 7 NPCs (the Martez Sisters, the Skako Minor droids and natives, etc) directly into the existing chapters rather than doing a separate "Season 7" chapter, it means I've resigned myself to the long, tedious task of manually updating all the page numbers and even/odd backgrounds in the existing 200+ pages (another reason to use InDesign in the future instead of Photoshop!).
    But on the plus side, since I've already resigned myself to that, it gives me the opportunity to go back and update the existing sections too. For example, I was never particularly happy with the ARC trooper / commando page so I've split them up into two much better-looking pages.

    Current main ship for the group is a sil 5 Loronar medium freighter. Based off of the Smoking Blaster from old WEG stuff.

    Jareth Valar got a reaction from Xcapobl in Space battle - would you use squadron or mass combat?   
    Personally, I'd go with Squadrons. Like you said, it's more involving for the PC's. It is their story.
    In my game, I have a large battle set up where I plan on using both. Squadrons for the PC's and having the players help control the flow of battle through Mass Combat.  Give them a bit more investment and immersion. Maybe something to consider, at least for a future encounter.

    RAW, no. It, like cover, grants defense.
    It has been a house rule at my table for a very long time that cover increases defense.

    You are absolutely right. However the rules of this system are intentionally loose and it states in many-many sidebars that GMs should exercise common sense when judging situations. We don't get more RAW than that. Unfortunately many GM forgets this and wants the books to cover every teeny-tiny detail to be in it.

    My thing with this is, that's pretty much a given in any and every RPG out there, not just this one.
    I totally agree, the GM away has that right, though not every GM chooses to exercise that right.
    I prefer to examine what is listed per the rules in these circumstances because I have always considered the GM Fiat as an obvious given. 🤷
