  1. Dawn of Rebellion Sourcebook

    While I love K9, he has a very hard time competing with . . . .
  2. Dawn of Rebellion Sourcebook

    If K9 and Kamelion count as a companions, then my Dawn of Rebellion book can too!

    ARRRRGH! Stupid street dates! My FLGS has copies, but cant sell them until tomorrow!
  4. The Brawn Characteristic and Species

    To give you an idea of the scale, two blacks is (more or less) like adding one more difficulty die. So yeah, that's not an insignificant penalty.
  5. What time periods does everyone play?

    We're all over the map. Original we did the Yavin era, then we restarted that by moving the original game back 20 or so years and played the descendants in Yavin era. That game rolled on until the Thrawn Counterattack era (which was heavily rewritten). Then we did a Naboo Crisis era game where we ran concurrent with the prequels wrapping up with Order 66. After that we did a Dark Times game having a hand in establishing the Rebellion followed up by an Knights of the Republic era game set on a planet between the Sith and Republic. We're just finishing up a Yavin era game that just wrapped up (more or less) with the mostly handwaved Battle of Jaku. Next, we'll be doing a Neo-Empire era sequel with their descendants.

    The only problem I could see - and this would only come into play if everyone is gung ho for the Sig abilities - is that you have no signature ability to attach to the tree. The starting skills and those starting ranks would be easy enough to jigger, so I see nothing wrong with it at a high level. I'm just not a fan myself.
  7. Of the three Character Building mechanics, I think I like Obligation the best. Morality just straight out sucks, and Duty is okay, but we often just wound up giving out points for doing what we do anyway, stuff that normally would happen in the course of a game. I did try and dangle some Duty Evoked Subplots in the way, but we didnt really use it as-is. Even the Obligation tends to be static, that it's something that gets accepted at creation, colors the character's history and story arc, but really doesn't go up or down. Honestly, I think - at least with games I'm running - we'd be better off dumping it all together and handing out points for filling out a Character Creation Questionnaire. It gets the job done without kludgy mechanics bolted on.

    The Chosen One has arisen! Quick light the grey smoke!!!
  9. I've got mine on my hard drive, but I didnt have a chance to watch last night. Tonight, however. . . .
  10. Seppie droids

    Minions with one level of Adversary?
  11. Dawn of Rebellion Sourcebook

    Just called my FLGS and no sign of the book. They say Thursday is their FFG day, so I'll check back then. Which probably explains why I got several pics of Frank Langella from the Cannon movie in my google hits.

    No, this is a Given:
  13. Playing a Female as a male

    Oh, that's SO much better. . . .
  14. The Brawn Characteristic and Species

    Also, if you think a character is throwing fists with someone outside of their weight class, we already have a mechanic in place for that. Toss in a black or two into the brawling roll and call it a day.
  15. Advice on Player Arguing over Simple Explanation

    "Bionic Legs. I run in slow motion." Boom, sorted. Unless it's hindering the story or giving the player an unfair boost, then don't worry about it.
