  1. Thank you GM Chris and Donovan! I'll be over there directly.
  2. I am re-posting here this question as it dawned on me late that I posted it incorrectly in the General Discussion forum. My apologies! Cool vs. Vigilance Can someone please explain to me in terms that even I can understand when a GM would prefer one over the other when calling for Initiative checks? It seems to me that these two skills and their usage for this purpose has the potential to confuse and perhaps be the subject of much debate at the gaming table.
  3. Well, what can one write about oneself without appearing as if he thinks too highly of himself. Let's see. I am a happily married man and father of eight most excellent children who have given me cause to have another look at the role-playing games that were collecting dust in my garage for a number of years. I have been role-playing off and on now for about thirty years ever since the Dungeons and Dragons Moldvay B series box first made its appearance in the early 80s or late 70s. I have played with a variety of different groups both young and old, from the strange to the socially acceptable and have marveled at the player diversity RPG games have. When it comes to preferred version I would have to write that 1st edition Advanced Dungeons and Dragons wins that title though the BX series comes in at a very close second. Since my 'olders' are now in their teen years I had decided to introduce them to the D&D world first through Stephan Chenault's Castles & Crusades game. Later we also discovered the Star Wars Role-playing game, first the Revised Version followed shortly afterward by Saga edition. The latter is now the family's preferred choice of game. My kids ages range between 5 and 16 years. I started listening to the Roll For Initiative Podcast recently and through it have been inspired to continue fantasy and sci-fi gaming possibly for some time to come and regularly. I am also a reliable listener of GM Chris' Order 66 podcast and through his show have learned about the new Edge of the Empire RPG from FFG. I have since purchased the Beta and am planning on playing at least a few sessions with the kids to see if this would be a good fit for us. Thus far, I am liking what I am reading…
