    angelman2 reacted to IanSolo_FFG in Campaign Hub world (need input)   
    Have a couple of bounty hunters on the map.  The heroes can interact with them.  They could pay a certain amount of credits to gain them as an ally for the next mission without increasing the threat.  You could even do something like how Obi-Wan hired Han Solo in ANH.  The heroes pay X credits before the mission with the promise of paying an extra amount of Y credits after the mission.  Then the heroes could decide not to pay the promised Y credits after the mission, but then the imperial player could spawn the bounty hunter for free (or at a threat discount) during an upcoming mission.
    For the upgrade stage, have 2 or 3 sellers selling different stuff that the heroes can visit.  Maybe it's Saska Teft (should be avaliable ... who plays with her anyway 😉), the Alliance "official" trader who will sell random stuff at the price printed on the card.  Maybe it's an ex-imperial officer who will sell exclusively imperial tech (you could even but some higher tier weapons in it to have your heroes drooling) but at a higher price than the one printed on the card.  Then the heroes can try to lower the price by bargaining with the officer (insight test) or by intimidating him (strength test).  Maybe the Imperial officer is standing next to a malfunctioning astromech droid  and the heroes can offer to have a look at it in order to help fixing (tech test) resulting in the heroes gaining the officer's trust and hence lowering the cost of the weapons for sell.  The discount could be based on how many successes.  
    Maybe at some point, the heroes hear noises coming from outside the cantina.  It appears 2 full squads of stormtroopers led by Kayn Somos are pursuing a Jedi ... could be Ahsoka Tano ... and there is a Grand Inquisitor too!  Will the heroes join the fight (in which case if Ahsoka survives, the heroes could earn her as an ally for free or at a lower cost for an upcoming mission) or will they leave the jedi to her own faith?  If they decide to fight, during the skirmish, any damage suffered AFTER a hero has been wounded could carry over for the next mission.  So joining the fight could have consequences.  
    Or maybe there are a number of npc to talk to that will determine which side missions the heroes can attempt next (instead of randomly drawing side mission cards)

    angelman2 reacted to Trevize84 in People who experienced all the campaign, which one you think is the best, why?   
    I really liked Jabba's Realm. My group and I use a simple house rule: when we play a new box, content of that box has priority on content of older boxes. This way we explore content as much as we can and keep the campaign experience the freshest possible.
    Well... Jabba's Realm brought unique heroes: Shyla that has nice mechanics and an overpowered feeling, Vinto can spread a lot of damage and Onar is a kind of unique in his genre. Some missions are also unique because of objectives and design (no spoilers here). Campaign for the first time sees mercenary characters involved both as Rebels and Imperials, although symbology in use divides them in Rebel players and Imperial players as usual.
    Hopefully one day we'll play a campaign as imperial "rebel players" vs one rebel "imperial player", maybe a campaign that can be played on both sides both as overlord or cooperatively depending on campaign setup. Until that time, Jabba's Realm will remain the most innovative one even though it wasn't revolutionary as I would like it to be.

    I don't get why everyone has to be so negative about IA's future all the time. I doubt it will be discontinued anytime soon, it's Star Wars after all. Runewars was an original concept without any preattachments making it not as appealing to potential players.
    Even if IA is officially discontinued, we can still play the game. Yeah we won't get anything new and most stores will probably stop hosting tournaments since there wouldn't be any new tournament kits, but we could plan stuff as a community and join to play our favorite game.

    angelman2 reacted to Trevize84 in Portable Wartable - asynchronous play webapp (campaign)   
    I personally play board games for the sake of spending time with friends, joking and all that stuff. When it comes to SWIA, I always run an online campaign with my buddies around the world using Vassal. We have 2-3 hours every Monday night, with some flexibility in case someone can't join for whatever reason. This format works well and feeling is almost like playing together at same table. Realism level is pretty high with people crunching chips and burping after beer with unmuted mic... skirmish instead could work.

    That actually means a whole lot less than the Ewok.  It’s the same art as the original card, just with the frame expanded.

    what gives me hope though is the fact that in the prices for the winner are flights to the 2020 worlds included, which means one more year of competitive play guaranteed, making it highly likely give us something more

    Ewoks were already adept at defeating large bipedal monsters the size of AT-ST. Many of the traps were likely already in place, designed for that task.
     
    also we all know imperial troops had extremely inaccurate weapons.

    (This will be my last off-topic post on this matter, 'cause... off topic   But, for d@mned to be a curse word makes every kind of sense in Norwegian, where cursing are religiously slanted; i.e. you actually curse someone when you make curse words, while vulgarity isn't actually thought of as particularly censor-worthy, even though it might be in extremely bad taste. But I hadn't registered that the D-word is 'evil' in Am.English. Very interesting Language is a cruel mistress!)

    And censors for American English have some messed up rules. You can say words like "d*ck" and "P*ssy" on television, but only if they are not in reference to sex.

    I was raised that it was a bad word, but it's definitely not very harsh profanity.  It's kind of the same tier as "sucks", as in "it sucks we haven't had a new wave announcement for almost a year".

    Yeah tell that to the Zulu. Winning a battle is more then possible, a whole war less so.
    Also Ewoks are smart as heck, they mastered gliding and thrived in an extremely hostile environment. And lots of other arguments I have made before. 
    Ewoks represent the silly fun and “stupid” of the Star Wars franchise and honestly Star Wars is bone stupid in the best ways, if you have yet to accept that then well I may question your overall maturity. 
    In terms of costumes an Ewok uses fake fur fabric where as a Wookiee uses a bunch of wigs hung on a net. I imagine a Wookiee costume is orders of magnitude more expensive then an Ewok.

    It’s a shame the timelines were thrown out, they really did a lot to thematically add to the game. I never really used them when they were a thing, but I probably should have.
    I think an Endor box set before the Death Star II briefing in RotJ and leading up to the Battle of Endor would work nicely. We could have rebel troops searching for info and eventually finding the base on Endor.

    Pretty safe to assume the Ewoks had run ins with the Empire prior to Leia and Co. showing up on Endor. It is possible they had learned to adapt their battle tactics and this was the springboard they needed to cause havoc. The initial attack of stone arrows was just to get the ST attention and lure them out, then all of the traps were sprung.
    Not all of it was effective, we see them failing as well, but a lot of it was. I think people do almost get to distracted by the cuteness of the Ewoks, they are viscous. If given the chance Ewoks would eat you and everyone you love.
