  1. Story Points to Start

    If a player-character does something particularly inspiring (like foregoing a combat action simply to position themselves in front of a helpless NPC), I will flip a DP in their favor.
  2. The long and short of it is, the status page is completely unreliable. No one on these boards can say for sure what is going on.
  3. Newb question

    In our games, we generally average about 3 specs per character by the end of the campaign and about 500-600 earned XP. I felt that was a typcial campaign length. However, I don't think everyone would agree with me. So as others have said, it really varies.
  4. Dawn of Rebellion Sourcebook

    I personally, would love an Ewok shaman spec. But I suppose that would mean we would need a species profile for Ewoks.
  5. I would love to do this for "high-level" one-shots. The problem with those is there is just too much on a character sheet and player doesn't know or remember what most of them do.
  6. Campaign where GM runs a PC

    I used to do this a lot when I first started GMing. It wasn't as bad as others are making it out to be. However, after a point, the other PCs were asking my character what they were thinking or what they feel the group should do next. Whether the players realized it or not, they were depending on me and my behind-the-scenes knowledge to advance the story. So once I came to that realization, I stopped running GMPCs.
  7. Also, since flavor text is inconsequential, you can still narrate Unleash as Force Lightning. It just won't have the mechanical effects that the Mastery upgrade would provide.
  8. Help with a melee build

    Even though you are playing a Scum and Villainy game, are you still allowed to use AoR? If so, the infiltrator would make a good secondary spec.
  9. Realms of Terrinoth Shipping!!!!

    hah! My name tag had my forum handle on it Maybe I will leave you guessing.
  10. Realms of Terrinoth Shipping!!!!

    I also held it in my hands. It's a hefty book, but I didn't want to sit down and thumb through it too much since it is intended to be auctioned off.
  11. Realms of Terrinoth Shipping!!!!

    Just don't start negging.
  12. Creating Chirrut Imwe

    Oooh! Archeologist, that's a good idea. I would not have thought of that. Martial Artist could work too. The next question is, does your friend believe Chirrut is Force Sensitive or wants to play his own character as such? Regardless of what LFL says (And please lets not turn this in to another debate), there are a lot of people with varying opinions on Chirrut's relationship with the Force. So your friend has something to consider there.
  13. This recent discussion really deserves its own thread. As for the current topic, I hope we get bring it back to a more general line of discussion. I plan on picking my copy while I am down in Texas this weekend. I love playing techs and engineers so this will be a fine addition.
  14. Typically, whomever rolled the pool (in other words: the person performing the action) gets to decide. However, the GM and rest of the table are welcome to make suggestions. Some GMs may even prepare some results that could happen on Advantage/Triumph. But ultimately, the roller gets to decide. However, the GM always has final say on if the suggestion is acceptable for the amount of advantage rolled. For instance, 2 advantage may not be enough to disarm a trained inquisitor, and the GM can rule that it is not.
