  1. I stopped buying Star wars books with NJO stuff. Then decided to pick up Aftermath series, and finally "Heir to the Jedi" to see if it got any better. stopped buying the books again

    HELP, please!

    so this player is bringing a character just to kill the other characters? nope... not happening
  3. Why does a blind man wear blackout glasses? because for normal people it is a bit disconcerting to talk to a person who's eyes do not focus on anything, or have scars. Same with Miraluka, they do not even bother with trying to use their eyes.at most they might be able to know when the sun is out.

    Do you use Custom Loot?

    I have a gunslinger in my group, literally handed him a weapon as loot to help his character and he did not like it and tossed it for credits. so i gave up handing them specific loot. only other loot I give out is breadcrumbs and other plots. also just use some "junk" loot that can be sold for credits.

    Ion Torpedos and Ion Bombs: What is your take on them?

    it my game I recreated the Mag-pulse torpedoes. They bypass shields and disable a ships weapons temporarily. The ships can move, but has no "Teeth" which allows for a poorly armored ship or fighter impunity to attack it. IMHO they are better than Ion Torpedoes for game balance wise then ion torpedoes since Ion cannons still have to deal with shields.
  7. i hear people using programs and getting some beautiful maps, but they use objects/tokens and just cut and paste. Not understand that it is beyond the program but all the additional resources like chairs tables walls and doors that make things look so much better. I have a hard enough time making circles and boxes that look like crap on the final product
  8. My Shadow/Thief who spent a lot of time on the streets was able to nab a MINT speeder bike. Painted it gaudy colors and bemoans every tiny scratch

    Dealing with Gear Creep

    This is NOT a gear based game, this is a skill, talent, roleplay based game. I have a player with 400+ XP and still is using a Regular blaster she started with. The ship they start with should break down, and become a credit sink. The weapons they find after looting the bodies are "hot", or require permits to carry. They want a rarity 5+ piece of equipment it requires a quest, or if they do find one it is damaged or inferior and costs 2 to 4 times as much.

    Repairs & Wear (Vehicle Ops Series)

    One of the things i notice in this is "wear" seems to happen with Damage to WTT or STT. Wear can also occur IMHO as the parts get old and basic maintenance is not maintained due to lazy, or minimal crew.

    Jedha after Rogue One

    I do not think it would be uninhabitable. We are talking about a near cataclysmic event that wiped for what we know to be the main city of the planet and anything near it. Sending ejecta up into the upper atmosphere. Constant sandstorms, nuclear winter, Electromatic interferance in the atmosphere, raging storms. But to be honest, not many would know before going there what happened to the moon. and players could easily say "This cannot be the right place" and "I have a bad feeling about this"
  12. Oh I don't mind the Obi-wan/Maul duel. But it was anti-climatic from the Teasers for the episode. Since it is a kiddie show you really didn't see where Maul was cut... assumed it was a sucking chest wound to allow Maul to have a pseudo final redemption
  13. Just finally got caught up in the episodes. Lets just say the last 2, were really low end filler episodes with huge plot holes and crappy writing. Super spy takes over Chopper, and instead dies when Hera's says "Don't mess with my droid" and somehow overloads his entire ship without killing Chopper via Transmission. Ezra despite being told not to, goes off on his own, falls for a trap, loses a Trainer A-wing, Chopper and Ezra almost die, and the climax is the shortest most anti-climatic lightsaber duel ever in star wars. I was really starting to enjoy some decent Episodes in the Series and then we have these 2.

    AoR - Where do you set your game?

    Not AoR. But I follow the Old WEG Galaxy Guide 6: Tramp freighters using some information from the Minos Cluster.
