    I'm giving my players a YT-2400, with around 10-20,000cr in repairs needed.

    Doc, the Weasel got a reaction from Daredhnu in Make Adversary Cards!!!!   
    I am not very interested in talent cards (which can already be easily referenced on a single page).
     
    What I think we need are cards with adversary stats on them. Some ready made baddies that I (as a GM) can whip out in a pinch, with all their pertinent data. 
     
    You could theme the packs, like Imperials, Gangsters, Corporate, Pirates, etc.
     
    Who's with me here?

    Doc, the Weasel got a reaction from StriderZessei in Highest PC Soak Value?   
    It seems kind of silly to talk about the ridiculous fringe extreme of soak without talking about how high you can crank damage from a hand-held weapon.
     
    I mean, just take a Blaster Rifle at damage 9, add an augmented spin barrel for +1, mod it for +2 more, and slap on a superior customization for +1 more. Jury Rigg it for +1 more. Then take Deadly Accuracy (+5 more), and then max out either Barrage or Point Blank (+3 either way).

    That is 22 base damage. Just base damage, for a mid-range weapon.
     
    This number doesn't even take into account other mods (like adding pierce) or all the bonuses to the attack roll itself, or other talents which will boost damage even more. For example, if you want to spend a DP, Soft Spot or Targeted Blow can bump the damage up to your Cunning or Agility respectively (6 for this example). 
     
     
    This is a lot easier to obtain, too, than a total soak of 14. Everyone worrying about high soak should consider that before declaring soak too powerful.

    I allow two one-handed weapons to be drawn with one maneuver if they are properly holstered/sheathed.

    I've never liked plans that use every inch of space as living/cargo space as if ship systems didn't exist and a thin wall were enough frame for support. These are starships, not apartments. 
     
    It's the reason I created my own. The original Falcon plans had it right and I followed that model.

    Hey guys,
    So after a long hiatus, I came back to look at the analytics for our talent sheets, and surprisingly they are still being downloaded at close to the same rate as when I was updating them. That got me thinking that I should finish what I started. 
    Over the next month (maybe two, definitely over the holiday season) I'm going to carve out some time to finish the Edge of the Empire sheets. Since all the career books are out I can just do this in one go and have them done. 
    What I'm looking for from you is errata. Some is posted on the B4XP site, but if you know of any edits that need to be made please send them to b4xp-talent-sheets@outlook.com. They will be easier to track at that address. 
    Right now, my intention is to just finish up the EotE ones. If time permits I will do AoR, and if time further permits then FaD. 
     
    Thank you all,

    Doc, the Weasel got a reaction from VadersMarchKazoo in Statting out Darth Vader   
    OK, I'm more conservative than most. I don't think just because a character is on screen that they have all 4s, and 5s. So here we go with Characteristics.
     
    Brawn 7
    The first thing we really see Vader doing is lifting a dude up with one hand. The guy is big and strong (and cybernetically enhanced). Plus this needs to be high to handle all the cybernetics in the first place. As Anakin, he was an athletic warrior, so this was a high stat before Vader. This is likely the stat he leans on in lightsaber combat.
     
    Agility 3
    Anakin would have had a 4 here, but Vader isn't very fast anymore. That fight with Obi Wan probably took out a point here in addition to his arms and legs. He still has the high Piloting skills and all the talents, so he's still solid in that arena. Aside from tales of how great a pilot Anakin was, we don't really see Vader do much in this department (and he's visibly slow on screen), so it would be hard to justify it being higher (all those cybernetics obviously went into Brawn). By Episode IV It probably should be 2, but I listed 3 out of Anakin nostalgia.
     
    Intellect 2
    Vader isn't much of a scholar. Nowhere are we shown that he has above and beyond great knowledge of things (he is a good strategist, but see below). He is good with machines, but that can be covered with a high Mechanics skill. Beyond that, though, there isn't any evidence of a high stat here.
     
    Cunning 4
    This is what Anakin was known for: thinking out of the box and tackling a problem from an unforeseen angle. Vader shows skill here as well when he cons one of the galaxy's best con men (though that's easier when you show up with a few star destroyers). Vader is no rocket scientist, but he is deviously clever. 
     
    Willpower 5
    This is one that I think Vader developed post Obi-Wan fight. Anakin could be stubborn, but he was also very impulsive. Maybe a 3 for him. Vader, on the other hand, is a force of nature. The only two people who could ever sway him were the Emperor (out of fear and twisted loyalty) and Luke (out of a father's love) ... and possibly Tarkin. Everyone else has to get out of the way. It also ties into his best social skill: Coercion. 
     
    Presence 2 
    I'm on the fence again on this one. Other than Cool – which he would have a 5 in – there is no evidence that Vader is good at any other skill associated with this stat. Does he have a "Presence," yes, but the way the game represents that in his case in through Willpower(Coercion). It's possible that he has a 3 and never uses it anymore, and Anakin didn't have the stat this low, but it's hard to justify having it higher based on what we see on screen.
