  1. What is it about the SW setting that it only takes 20-30 years for history to become the stuff of myth and legend? That woman's description of the Jedi sounds like someone from today describing Rubik's Cubes as "enigmatic devices which once enthralled the minds of millions!"
  2. When it comes to making balanced encounters; if you're not sure how many bad guys to include, I find it's always better to err on the side of too few. If there are too few, it's usually no problem to have reinforcements arrive from nearby; but if it's too many, it's a little more difficult to back out of.
  3. What do you do with all of the Enhance powers which do exactly that for specific skills?
  4. I haven't done Nowhere yet but my group has enjoyed my knockoffs of Xandar and Sakaar. Personally, I wouldn't tie it into anything known. Just make a big giant head and leave the players wondering what it was and why no one else has ever seen such a thing.
  5. Did any writer every address Obi-Wan's comment about Owen's attitude towards Anakin. "He thought he should have stayed here and not gotten involved." He was already 'involved' the first time they met. Was this chalked up to another random Obi-Wan lie?
  6. Sorry for not including an image; this website for some reason won't let me upload anything large enough to be viewed without a microscope. The beachfronts of Kashyyyk are depicted with numerous round platforms atop inverted cones atop long poles rising up out of the water. I've looked and looked but I can't find any official explanation as to what purpose they're supposed to serve. Anyone got a clue? Thanks in advance.
  7. Malifaux - Through the Breach isn't quite 'western' but has a lot of western elements.
  8. After ending a long-running stint of GURPS in 2013, I have run the following... - Old World of Darkness: great setting; messy mechanics. - New World of Darkness: much improved mechanically, though some of the fluff I found lacking. - 2nd Edition Warhammer Fantasy RP: Fun big world; ok mechanics. - Dark Heresy / Black Crusade: straightforward but somewhat bland mechanics; my players didn't enjoy the setting as much as I did. - WEG Star Wars: only briefly. - FFG Star Wars: core mechanics give me a headache, but the talents are flavorful and I prefer it over other options (and I love Star Wars). - Iron Kingdoms: just like Star Wars, I love the setting but the core mechanics leave something to be desired in my opinion. - Malifaux - Through the Breach: love it; but dependency on cards, maps, and minis has it on hold until the lockdown (yes, I know that there are online alternatives, but it's not the same). - Planning on trying Cold & Dark to replace Dark Heresy: mechanics are a little bland but I really love the setting. - Gearing up now for a D&D 5E campaign in late summer: big improvement over 2nd Edition AD&D, which was the last incarnation of D&D that I ever touched.
  9. This. There are a LOT of planets on Wookieepedia that either have zero information or only a tiny blurb about something minor which happened there or was mentioned about it; leaving you plenty of room to flesh it out however you want.
  10. These are the only two which I am aware of... https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Kwookrrr https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Rakhuuun
  11. The problem for me was transitioning to online play, as I was already spending 40 hours a week juggling multiple streams of information while video chatting with half a dozen people constantly talking over each other. : )
  12. After capturing Specter Cell, my PCs took possession of the Ghost; that's a Sil 5.
  13. Kyle Reese from the original Terminator, Cpl Hicks from Aliens, and Lt. Coffey from The Abyss just to name a few.
  14. Darn it. My little sister is going to be very disappointed when I tell her. EDIT: Oh, wait... they can make attacks, they just need a male chaperone to tell them which skill to use. I think that's even worse.
  15. I'm not sure about that. Usually when he's solidly backed into a corner he just disappears from the thread. The fact that he's still arguing makes me think that he still believes that he's right. Tramp, I'm a fan of Boba too; I'll admit it. And I've actually established in my campaign that he is in fact a Mandalorian; but my campaign is around 90% head-canon, and I've never made any claim to the contrary. If you want the Fetts to have been / to be / to eventually be Mandalorian in your own campaign, that's fine; nobody's going to stop you. But this blatant refusal to acknowledge the very black-and-white statements made by canon authorities on the subject is... a little concerning.
  16. I preferred Empire but I played Rebels from time to time. Those T-47s were pretty sweet.
  17. Yes you did; and I got a much-needed good laugh. Thank you.
  18. Ok, but he's also going to get an aim bonus for all the hours spent scouring books for the words 'hit' and 'miss'.
  19. Dice are already going out of stock / shooting up in price.
  20. Until you get a better feel for it, one option is to err on the weaker side but to have reinforcements nearby. I suggest that you talk to your players about it and try to come to a consensus that everyone finds agreeable. I can also tell you that this is a touchy subject for some members of this community, but hopefully things will remain civil.
  21. You're overusing bold so much that you now have to add both italics and underlining for emphasis.
  22. Or, as was the case with the 40K RPG line: go many months with zero comment, yank the titles from DriveThruRPG without warning, shove all the discussion forums into the archives, and still not actually say anything.
  23. Back up a sec... why were the stormtroopers trying to kill you to begin with?
  24. My players have a VCX 100; and whenever they get a false ID for it, they come up with a new name for the auxiliary fighter/shuttle to go with it. One of their false IDs was "Reckless Endeavor", which I took from a thread just like this one. Their corresponding name for the shuttle was "Poor Life Decision".
