  1. It would, yes. Starcana is built with a "science fantasy/space opera" tone. The careers, talents, vehicles, and equipment would complement any similar settings. All the species are silhouette 1. The Nidenos are "human sized dino-people". 😉 Some of them are a little taller or broader than most other races (especially the longnecks), but nothing so big that they're considered to be Silhouette 2.
  2. Last call for questions! We'll take questions up to tomorrow night at midnight, then ask what we can on Sunday!
  3. It's that time again, Gamer Nation! We've got a few books that we NEED to do deep dives into, and the first one on our table is the new Clone Wars Era sourcebook, Rise of the Separatists! We will be welcoming lead developer Tim Cox to the show to talk about the first book covering this exciting era, and we want YOUR questions about it! Rules questions, design queries, clarifications; whatever you want to ask about this book send them on over to us! So post up your questions here, over on our forums at d20radio.com, or on our Order 66 Facebook page. We'll be answering your questions LIVE on Sunday, July 14th at 8pm CST! See you there!
  4. Hey man; your call, your game. Play it how you like. Personally I feel there's a huge difference between the survival instincts of womp-rats vs. Tattooine's apex predator.
  5. See previous comment about "medium range" and Fear checks. Even BX-commando droids aren't immune to fear. And probably don't have the best Discipline checks. And I mean, come on; you can always come up with a winning hand that beats anything. But where's the fun in that? What GM is going to enable such a thing to go off without a hitch?
  6. As a comment, the Canyon Krayt Dragon (of which these are the stats for) lives...go with me now...in canyons. Narrow spaces with all kinds of cover, as well as rocky outcroppings they can get cover and concealment from. The Krayt will likely hear large vehicles coming, and probably won't want anything to do with them, so it takes cover. Anyone on a vehicle that gets close enough to fight the krayt is probably within Medium range, the Krayt can then roar at them causing a fear check. If the character generates two Threat (or a Despair, honestly), the character is now immobilized. That nice vehicle that was moving at speed? Well, it now moves at-speed along it's last path of travel because the pilot can't spend a maneuver to steer, probably straight into a canyon wall. Krayts are cunning creatures.
  7. You mean starting Species/Archetypes? They're at the top of page 6.
  8. It has it's place. I'm not sure I'd ever let a player stagger a target with a successful Negotiation check without this talent. Make them hesitate and apply Setback dice, sure. Maybe I'd let them stagger a target with a Triumph on a success, but get them to swap sides mid-fight without there being a plot reason to do so? No way. That's the other thing about this talent; you can use it on any non-Nemesis, any time. Dude-who-has-no-reason-to-change-sides, your GM might allow it. And that's the key part... Your GM is giving you zero assurances that you can get your opponent to change sides, even with a Triumph. That's still the GMs call on a case by case basis. But making your opponent lose their next action, once per session? As a Tier 2 talent? That can be clutch.
  9. Not to try to outphysics anyone (not my speciality), but I'd think that if you tried to build a space elivator with the same principals as New Angeles in NY, it would end up slanting into the sky in a southerly angle, and there would likely be all kinds of other forces working against the beanstalk too
  10. Two weeks for Genesys core, if I recall correctly. But yeah, RoT was right on the street date, so hopefully tomorrow! Something appropriate about having a pdf of this rulebook...
  11. Careers are Academic, Bounty Hunter, Con Artist, Courier, Investigator, Ristie, Roughneck, Runner, Soldier, Tech Hacker = Runner Xplosion = Bounty Hunter, Roughneck, or Soldier Rigger = Tech Rogue = Con Artist. Kinda all I got time to do for now, got a lot of work I need to do. I'll have to defer to others to give out more info.
  13. Has this become a problem, or are you trying to head off a possible problem ahead of time?
