    Medium Base

    Like a large base. Keep in mind the new BR rules though. The template starts centered on the base and you line up the base’ center line with the center or either end of the template in the final position.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story [SPOILER THREAD]

    It occurred to me walking home from the theater, they could pull the world’s most epic troll and release the home video version with Beckett shooting first and missing. There would be riots.

    Make Epic 2.0 Great

    The Ghost is being attacked by Vorlons!

    I proxied 2.0 Vader, here are my thoughts...

    That he is even squishier is concerning. Vader was always one of the first ships to die whenever I played him before. Powerful, but with no survivability.

    Quick question - overland map creation software

    Yep, that was the one.

    Epic ships in 2.0

    Honestly, huge ships were weak enough I’m not sure you even need to do that. Just charge the un-doubled points for epics and then huge ships are worth taking.

    Ah, so you’ve already found campaign cartographer. I know I’ve seen a program that produces hex maps in the styles of old D&D box set maps, but I can’t for the life of me remember what it was now. Sorry. If it comes to me I’ll let you know.

    Wealth Rules

    Generally, what I've seen is costs below your wealth level you can always afford (within reason) while costs above your wealth level require a roll and (might) reduce your wealth level permanently. So an average wealth character can always afford to go to the movies, but would have to roll to afford a new car, but a poor character might need to roll for even that movie ticket, and might not be able to make rent if they went anyway. I really like the idea of those systems, but the problem I have is how to adjudicate wealth going up. Your the first person I’ve seen address that angle, but even yours is just a temporary, well, boost. How would you handle characters that want to improve their overall wealth level? Just spend XP? Or do they need to give up some number of the accumulated boost dice? Or do they need to also make a roll? No group I’ve ever played with has actually wanted to keep track of money and equipment purchasing and such so I am very interested in finding an alternative to handling it. Another question. How would such a system deal with a party that was like the crew from Firefly, with a ship with maintenance costs and assorted fees and such?

    Tie Strikers Seem Good

    Aren’t all bombs dropped in the device phase in 2.0?

    Tie Strikers Seem Good

    It really does. Wonder if you could convert one. Use parts from a striker and an e-wing, maybe.

    Linked actions & upgrades

    No. The upgrades have the red action as a requirement, then add a new, white action to your bar, so the linked action stays red but you have a white version of the base action as well.

    Is Luke Gunner Actually That Good?

    No worries. I once read a post and went “when the heck did I type that?”

    Is Luke Gunner Actually That Good?

    The point I was making was that the sweet spot where it is "balanced" point wise could still negatively impact the game. Obviously if it costs 87 points it won't have any effect at all, and equally obviously, if it costs 1 point it will effect the meta, but that does not necessarily mean there is a point where it works because the point where it is "balanced" and the point where it does not unhealthily impact the meta may not overlap. And again, I am just trying to explain the different sides to people here, because some of the people here are starting to talk past each other and are just arguing for the sake of arguing.

    Is Luke Gunner Actually That Good?

    Huh? The last thread I started was almost 3 weeks ago? edit, Oh, I know what happened. You confused me with Rakydos because we have the same avatar pic. Easy mistake. Gets really confusing when there are 3 of us with that pic having an argument, totally looks like I am schizophrenic.

    Is Luke Gunner Actually That Good?

    No, they would just like you guys to stop moaning about it at EVERY SINGLE OPPORTUNITY. It has been hashed to death at this point, talk about something else related to the game and wait and see what develops.
