    At first glance? The half miralukan is a human with 10 less Starting XP, an no non-career skill choices. They lose Farsight, as well as Blind, and as such they have no unique abilities? So I would never choose that one over a human if I were to go for more optimal builds.

    half miraluklans still have the farsight power and can still use it as an incedental they how ever do not have farsight always on, with them im trying to blance out not being blind and not have a forcepower always on in some manner

    And you add 3 Force Points to the result. Why? Why not simply state that using the species ability as an incidental comes with one (1) automatic success so the miraluka is able to "see", unless they make a Force power check, rolling their Force dice as an action, and they score more FP? Basically you are handing the miraluka two automatic extra upgrades to his or her "vision" when they have bought Force power upgrades.

    I don't think it is glaringly overpowering, but there is certainly a choice or two (or FP or two, really) I keep wondering about.

    with the whole add FP to your roll im trying to further dispossition miralukan players into using farsight, if that's a little heavy handed how about a rank in perception?


  2. Stats:
    all 2

    Wounds/Strain:
    10/10

    EXP:
    100

    Unique:
    Farsight - miralukans start the game with the farsight basic power, and may roll farsight as a incedental adding 3FP to the result

    Blind -  at character creation decide full or half miralukan full miralukan are blind but always have farsight basic power active, half miralukan have nither

     

    anything glaringly OP about this?


  3. i've just watched the clone wars episode where Anakin, Obi-Wan and Ahsoka meet the for lack of a better word the force deities, one of the abilities that they posses is where they can deactivate and presumably activate lightsabers at will while i believe that doing this with any lightsaber is OP as ****, having the ability to do this with 1 or 2 lightsabers the character owns could be very nice and so in my games i have added to each crystal a tallent, costing 25 EXP an additional "oath" to gain (this part comes straight from stormlight archives), called "Over Attune" its effects are as such:
    Ignore lightside and dark side restrictions on this crystal (there's only two that i know of that have is qualification), may activate or deactivate a lightsaber with this crystal installed at will

    feel free to use this in your games if you feel it is appropriate


  4. Channel Base Power:

    dedicate 2: once per round as a out of turn incidental when a force user within engaged range doesn't willingly use force points add those to you next check eg. darkside user rolls BBBBWWW and only uses that black on your next check you add WWW to the results

    Upgrades

    Strength x2:

    dedicate 1 may use this an addition time per round

    Range x1

    can target force users at short range

    Control

    when a force user does not willingly use a force point you may inflict 1 strain per unused force point instead of adding it to your next force check (you can go half and half)

    Mastery

    suffer 3 strain Channeled force points do not cause conflict

     

    Clarification:

    only targets a single person at a time additional uses may target different people

    suppress does not trigger this power

    I’m not a physicist but let’s say hypothetically ;we have the Millennium Falcon. It’s FTL hyperdrive can go Class 0.5 past lightspeed. Then we have an X-wing which has a Class 1 past lightspeed drive. This is all from the lore. MF is 0.5 and X Wing is 1 but MF is faster. Anyway even though the Class 1 is “faster”; is it due to length contraction at FTL that’s make the lower grade drive faster or am I hopelessly off base?

     

    well considering that star wars lore legends and main cannon both say that FTL is achieved through exploiting another universe/plain of reality getting around all if not most of the issues that come about because of light-speed travel let alone FTL

    but i'm assuming your asking how does this nonsense works in a mechanical way and in that case X-wing has a class 1, the millennium falcon has class 2 the difference between the two is the multiplier applied to the travel time where the class is the multiplier e.g. 1 days hyperspace travel can be covered in 1 day by the X-wing while the millennium falcon takes 2 days. and yes a class one can travel slower to allow for a coordinated assault like the battle of the second death star

    I think that, basically, that you roll your full Force rating at the start of a session, and put it in the Destiny Pool. And it is important to remember what everybody rolled exactly, because apparently there's important differences between a die showing two white pips and two dice showing one white pip.

    And then you never roll for Force rating ever again. Whenever you need Force points, you just take some of the pre-rolled dice from the Destiny Pool, use the rolled results, and reroll the die or dice you used and add it back to the pool.

     

    this is a decent TL;DR


  7. House ruling that i made cause of the posts that are unhappy with the current force system, that i agree with to an extent.
    This is an attempt to make the force less of a additional aspect that has been added on to the core of FFGSW and as stated in the title i am doing this by merging force and destiny more into one. Now this might get a bit messy to keep track of but im sure people will find ways of doing so

    When creating the destiny pool each non-force user roles a single dice and adds to the pool a single token regardless of how many are shown on the dice, while force users rolls dice equal to their FR and add the full value to the pool, i suggest using the dice to mark this as any doubles generated cannot be split and used individually.
    When anyone uses destiny or activates a FP they may use any combination of dice and tokens up to at least the required amount of a talent/sig-ability, or their FR (doubles are still counted as one dice), once they have chosen they will re-roll a dice for each used and add the results back to the destiny pool (tokens->tokens, dice->dice).
    If someone would commit a FD they would take that number of tokens or dice from those they re-rolled, if not then the pool, and keep them until they where uncommitted

    some examples:
    a Hired Gun Demolitionist rolls (DD) but only adds (Dt) to the destiny pool
    a Consular sage has a FR of 3 rolls (LL)(D)(D) and adds that as it stands to the pool
    a Soldier Vanguard/FS emergent rolls (DD) and adds it to the pool
    the results are a pool of (Dt)(D)(D)(DD)(LL)

    When the Soldier uses Farsight they use the (LL) to get the base power and 1 duration they then re-roll the dice and add it results back to the pool resulting in (LL)
    later the Demolitionist activates the time to go talent but need to us the (LL) to do so afterwards they roll a (L)
    finally the consular sneaks into an imperial facility using misdirect to help cloak themselves they decide to use the (Dt)(DD) and (L) re-rolling them into (Lt)(LL)(L) dedicating the token and the (L)

    I just want to add that in question 1, using the Force to, well, force your own dead carcass to remain operative strikes me as an extremely dark side thing to do, and I would give any PC doing this a bunch of conflict every session.

    eh depends a guardian being that last one standing between an oncoming imperial force and a bunch of unarmed civilians/rebels? no


  9. Control: spend 2 to increase burn rating by 1

    Control: Spend 3 to hit another target within range

    Mastery: commit 3, as an action you may make a normal range attack using the original force result along with the new roll (a.k.a you only roll on the force once and that roll is sustained for as long as you like) i picture this like dumbledore in the cave after drinking the liquid pain

    The smugglers book has a luck one may wish to look at that 

    the force one seems off you may wish to look at the mystic one for reroll ing force dice and adding free points though 

     

     

    okay so the premise of this is that i wanted these to be wholly unique to the characters in addition i am drawing inspiration for these powers from a few fantasy series

    the first comes from mistborn where people have the ability to store attributes like luck or strength suffering the consequences of not being lucky or strong, to latter draw upon those same attributes to become luckier or stronger for an equal amount of time 

    the second is from skyward where a genetic mutation (idk it's not fully explained beyond being genetic) allows select individuals to physically become part of the workings of their ship to perform several different effects most notably instantaneous travel of the ship and everything aboard

    the final one is from elantris where your knowledge and understanding of magic dictates how well you perform at it

    5 specialisations really ? All the 4 after the starting one from different careers so costing more XP to learn.

    8 Force Powers really ? Even with the mentor discount it is not cheap in XPs.

    DO you realize how much XPs are needed to build such character ? Especially with Force Powers with a FR 2 or 3 as pre-requisite. Because that means you must buy the specs then you must buy the talents needed to go down the tree to reach the +1 FR talent, and buy it too of course.

    That's not a staring character even at knight level.

    im not saying all of them but any of these

    So he can opt to add a Setback dice to add up to 4 boost dice or he has to add a number of black dice to one check in order to get boosts on the next one?
    Is the costs for this the standard two Destiny Points?  

    he can add up to 4 black dice to a single check or across multiple to add an equal number of blue to one check or again across multiple

    eg.

    4 black ---> 4 blue is good

    1black, 2 black ----> 3 blue is fine

    3 black -----> 1 blue, 1blue, 1 blue is allowed

    Daeglan is correct.  We need to know which career these will attach to as well as the suggested upgrades to each of them before we can help balance them.  I would be very hesitant to adding a Teleport option with Star Wars (I did just do a search and found that it is already in there but doesn't appear to include vehicles with the ability).

    I also don't understand the first one at all, what do you mean by "gain a charge"

    in short they can add a black to a check so that they can add a blue to a future check


  14. Just now, Daeglan said:

    still way too vague. No one is going to really be able to tell you anything. Because 1. you dont give a design intent. So one cant say if you intent is reasonable and can't really tell if you even accomplished your goal. Also are these supposed to be signature abilities? Because it is hard to tell what you mean by unmatched ability.

    Edited

    need more info. These are too vague

    These are the alpha draft of the base ability, I'm still working on suitable upgrade trees

    But in the first case the player asked for luck

    The second case the resident pilot wanted an ability to use while driving

    In the third the player requested "a deeper understanding of the force"


  16. okay so i have a few homebrew signature abilities i'd like help balancing

    first:

    when making a skill check may add a black to dice pool to add gain a charge to a max. of 4, or remove any number of charges to add an equal amount of blue to the current skill check

     

    second:

    once per session when you make a piloting planetary skill you make instead make a astrogation (willpower) to teleport the vehicle to any where in short planetary range

     

    third:

    when making a force check may make a combined knowledge check, adding further details and benefits for each uncancelled S

    If you can find the attachment in your browser (I'm assuming your on a PC) you should be able to dictate which dictionary it draws from

    Yes I know it's kinda a hasle but a few auto correct attachments do have the ability to allow multiple dictionaries with a with priority so you could set it to be mostly from French but also allows English

    How important do you want the boon and the bane to be ?

    For a character asking for a deeper comprehension of the Force, I would say he gains a better vision of how the Force flows around and through everything, and a better ability to understand how to use it in new ways

    Mechanically speaking, he gains a 5xp discount on the Control upgrades of the force powers, as they are the ones that give new aspects to them.

    On the other hand, the sheer amount of information he gets can "overload" his mind, making him more vulnerable to ennemy Force power (let's say 2 black dices (1 ?) in opposed Discipline checks... and keep it a surprise, that can make a good scene to RP)

    does this sum up your experience with auto correct?

    faites taire votre machine insupportable! si j'avais voulu que tu me corriges j'aurais demandé!

    Horrible idea... Can take any force related powers from any trees at any time and all of them are reduced by 5 xp (minimum 5xp).  They have the ability to develop any force abilities...but they are no longer able to develop any other skills/abilities.

    So no more growth in skills, no more talents, no more force points.  The only thing they can develop is force skills and force talents (but not increase force power).  They asked for a deeper understanding of the force, not to become more powerful in the force.  They can understand and comprehend more about the force quicker and easier than other people...but they will never be more powerful in the force or grow more powerful in other skills.

    That curse is rather severe as these are new character with less then 50
