  1. I'm looking for printable blank character sheets for all three core books as well as career/specialization trees and force powers. Just like the ones in the 3 core books. Can someone please post a link to these? Doesn't Fantasy Flight Games provide these? Sorry, I'm getting frustrated. Thanks for your help.
  2. I am running this adventure but my players seem to have trouble grasping that they need to actually plan the heist instead of just running in and taking action. I don't want to spoon-feed them the plan. Any ideas how I can encourage them to think a different way than normal?
  3. We just completed the adventure in the Beta book. We found the crystal cave and recovered Athiss crystals. How many can be recovered? If its a large number, how many would you recommend the GM allow to be recovered?
  4. Ah. Its as simple as that. Great. Thanks so much.
  5. I am running Beyond the Rim. It says direct trip to Cholganna would take 55 hours with a Class One hyperdrive. How long would it take with a Class Two? (That's what our ship has. We're hoping to upgrade aftyer this mission) What about the Falcon with its hyperdrive? 27.5 hours? I am at work studying the adventure but I don't have my Core book so thanks for indulging me.
  6. At the dig they find some Sith era artifact (if that ties with the Canon). Maybe a holocron. Whatever it is causes a disturbance in the Force. Palpatine sends one of his Hands (or an apprentice pinkie of your players are lower level) to investigate. The players have to deal with stormtroopers, TIE fighters, whatever as they tryn to do whatever they want to do with the item. They can sell it to someone, give it to the Empire or the Alliance, put it on their mantle... whatever. You could spend the next few adventures dodging Imperial agents amd bounty hunters looking for them.
  7. We have a GM and 2 players. When we are lucky we have 3. When we are super-duper lucky we have 4. So I run a character and GM whether its Star Wars or Pathfinder. My character is not the leader of the group. If they players get stuck because they can't figure something out, like the party scene in The Long Arm of the Hutt, then they are stuck. (Boy was that a frustrating scene). One of our players doesn't role-play. He's there for the fighting. So often its me the GM and one player roleplaying. (God, please send me a couple more regular players). My character is basically there to fight and pilot the ship and make wise cracks. I play a droid based loosly on Cylons and Bender. He's funny and oftentimes gets people in trouble. Then he fights his way out of it.
  8. Actually Star Trek did change its dating system when TNG aired. In the Original Series it went like this: Today's date in our calander in September 14, 2013. In the TOS series it was yearmonth.date so you got 1309.14. Basically 2000 became year zero. I have no idea how the newer system works. The Trek people who wrote for TNG, DS9, VOY, all the movies (including the new ones) just switched without making a big deal about it. It was like they never used the old system. They have a book out explaining it. Can't remember the title though.
  9. Even if it was "after death" as so many wrongly believe, that's not a single battle in a war is it? It's a significant event to those who had the power to write history (the Catholic church) that took hold over most of known civilization at the time. The Battle of Yavin by comparison does not hold that same relevance. You're on the right track though with the Ruusan reformations, read my second post above.... Actually Jesus was born about 4 BC. Just saying. Its a little late to change the BBY/ABY thing but its still an interesting topic so argue on. Why not make it ABE/BBE with the battle of Endor and the death of the Emporer and thus the Empire?
  10. OK so what was decided on how much fuel was used on a hyperspace jump? I gather you get more than 6 hours of hyperspace time per fuel cell. Another question just popped to mind...(sorry for the subject change) what happens if you run out of fuel while in hyperspace? Are you stuck in hyperspace? Is that possible? or do you revert to realspace?
  11. This is great. Thanks. Does everyone you talk to seem to agree with this? Or is it from an official source?
  12. How much does it cost to keep a ship flying? i don't mean repairs from battles, I mean fuel, maintenance, provisions, etc. In one game we have a YT-1300, in another we have a Firespray, and another we have a Wayfarer. With the wayfarer we want to get a foghter or tow so what about them. Also what about concussion and proton (or whatever they are called) missles? How much do they cost? Something to add to the book they need to come out with: Jane's guide to Star Wars ships.
  13. Lots of great ideas and good advice. I like the once per mission idea and love the make premade generic settings to fit them in when they come up. And rolling up at the end of the adventure before the next one is a brilliant idea. Thanks so much. Two sessions today (if everyone shows up) I'll let you know how it goes.
  14. Hey look at the new guy starting trouble! Yay! Its not my intent. I just find them cumbersome. I plan an adventure that has nothing to do with the players' obligations and we still have to deal with them. Some of the obligations have nothing to do with the adventure. Especially the ones created by FFG. So what do I do? Sideline the whole adventure just to focus on one character? Obviously it can be easier with home made adventures, but some obligations just don't seem to fit. One of my buddies whome I get to play with once every month or two had an idea for our game with him. Have a group obligation, like paying off our ship. Is that reasonable? In our regular game our wookiee killed off an agent of the Emporer. If I add that obligation of being hunted by the Empire to him he will have a ton of obligation. I stole a minor crime lord's ship right from under his nose. That's a pretty big obligation. Both actions are great for story but if the campaign has a different plot, these obligations can get in the way. I get it, actions have consequences, but when I have to rill randomly for these things its just ijn the way rather than part of the story. Am I making sense? Am I whining too much? Am I crying over spilled blue milk?
