  1. Working a BB unit into my campaign

    On Monday my play group is meeting to start the first adventure of our campaign set between Episode III and IV. In the first part of the adventure the players will ("might") come across a mechanic/junker who will be willing to trade the group a droid. I want to get away from the R2-D2 type Astromech droids. I have thought about using a BB unit but doing research tonight on the background of this droid-type it looks like it came into large use after ROTJ. Can you all help me think of a logical way to incorporate a BB unit into the time between Ep. III and IV? Thanks!
  2. Animal Handling

    Thank you all for your help. And thank you for pointing out the Stay on Target book.
  3. Animal Handling

    I am thinking about having a chase scene in one of my games soon where the players will be riding animals in a chase against agents of the empire. But I have noticed there is not an animal handling type skill check like there is in D&D 5th edition. Can someone help me figure out which skill the players should use when rolling dice to make skill checks? Thanks for your help!
  4. Expansion Packs

    I am curious if anyone else is having a hard time getting a hold of the expansion packs for Arkham Horror LCG? I don't have a game store where I live and I have to do all my shopping through websites like Miniature Market . Every time a mythos pack becomes available it quickly has the out of stock symbol come up. I have yet to be able to purchase an expansion pack as a result. It is really frustrating. Is anyone else having this issue?
  5. Thank you for the information in the beginner games. That is exactly what I needed.
  6. I have noticed that the Dawn adventures are very hack and slash in their narrative, and like you I need to change that up a bit to provide more roleplaying and giving the players other options to achieve goals. I loved your idea for modifying Dawn; do you mind if I steal your concept?
  7. I do have the app installed on my tablet that I will use when I GM. I would love to hear your thoughts on Dawn as you progress. I am about half way through the first scenario.
  8. A few weeks ago I posted on this forum that I wanted to convert the Dawn of Defiance games over to the FFG template. Since posting that thread I have met with my friends and talked about the campaign setting. I have three people who will be playing in the campaign and they chose the following character types: a force sensitive character on the path to becoming a Jedi (or he hopes), a rebel ace pilot, and a smuggler bounty hunter. I was really hoping they would pull characters from the same core book, but I also wanted them to have the freedom to play what they wanted and to have fun. Now my next issue is how to start them off. Dawn of Defiance has a good introduction scenario, but I think given the dice mechanics of FFG's system is so different from D&D, which my friends are more accustomed to, they need to start off with one of the beginner games. But I have no clue which one would be best? Do you recommend the EoE, AoR, or FaD beginner game and why? Once again thank you so much for your help. I have been very appreciative of everyone's helpful remarks in the past!
  9. Star Wars games to listen to?

    Thank you all for the recommendations. I had no clue all of these even existed. This will help make my office hours go by so much better!
  10. I have been listening on YouTube to the INVICTUS Stream six part game on Age of Rebellion and I have been loving listening to people play in the rpg. Can anyone recommend other podcasts or other youtube videos to listen to? Thank you for your help!
  11. Dawn of Defiance and FFG Core Books

    Thank you, Mouthymerc. I enjoyed reading through your gaming diary.
  12. Dawn of Defiance and FFG Core Books

    Thank you for your comments. I will look into the free pdfs.
  13. Dawn of Defiance and FFG Core Books

    Thank you for your remarks. Right now I am making adjustments to the first games, The Traditor's Gambit. This is my first time running an FFG Star Wars game, although I have played D&D 5th Edition for a few years now. I wanted to use a premade campaign for various reasons: 1. I am new to GMing and 2. my work schedule gets crazy at times and I wanted something semi-fast to modify for my play group. I have noticed, like you mentioned, that DoD is a very hack and slash type setting so I am working to tone that down and work in some actual role playing situations.
  14. Hi Everyone, I have found a website with the ten pre-made WOTC Star Wars rpg campaign "Dawn of Defiance" and I am trying to convert the first adventure, The Traitor's Gambit, over to the system used by FFG. Has anyone done this before, and if so, can you provide me any tips? Some friends of mine will me meeting over the weekend to build characters from Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, and Force and Destiny to play in this campaign. Thanks for your help!
