    Well, there are rules for armor crafting (Keeping the Peace?), but maybe you can give them (or let them have) some custom schematics.
    The balance point is usually set at half the price and one less rarity for the parts as a standard bought item.

    It's weird, so much hate for using dice for Morality when we have so many other dice in use!
    Maybe we can rewrite the system using the FFG dice and people will be happier than with a D10 !

    I'd suggest it being at least a manoeuvre.

    I can never complain about cheesy, it's "Star Wars", not sure you can get much cheesier than that! It was always a B Movie title.

    Genesys seems solid from reading it, but is a framework to create games rather than a game in it's own right, as I see it.

    It's sad, particularly for those affected by job losses.
    Doesn't really affect my desire to play the game, though, as it is complete enough, and open enough, to run Star Wars games until the end of time!
    Edit - Though in an ideal world, reprints would continue!

    It is probably also worth noting that with a stagnation of earnings (and least in US/UK) over a considerable period, that as discretionary spending drops, collectables would be expected to drop faster than toys for people's kids. Thus lines aimed at adults will be hit harder.

    Yeah, interesting, arguably The Last Jedi (which I actually enjoyed) could be said to be the reverse.

    Darzil got a reaction from P-47 Thunderbolt in Min-maxing Gunslinger possible?   
    I find true aim really shines along with the mod that lets you aim as incidental. With true aim you rarely aim twice as you get most of the pay off up front on the first aim, so you aren’t sacrificing much to never spend a manouver aiming. I love anything in this game that downgrades actions or manouvers as it really helps action economy.

    JJ brought back JJ's characters and sidelined Johnsons.
    I don't think having multiple directors helped this trilogy.
    Sure, it could be going along with previous backlash, but a preference for his own creations is a simpler explanation.

    I had the same issue during the movie, but in hindsight, it's just development of the hyperspace tracking technology from The Last Jedi. (JJ level development, of course!)
    Did anyone else have KOTOR flashbacks with that Fleet? Was definitely getting an Eternal Empire vibe (or maybe Star Forge).
    I think I could pick holes in that movie for hours, but at least unlike Force Awakens it was trying to tell it's own story, not retell another. As a trilogy, I think it suffered from having very different visions between two directors, and I think it should have been just one (don't really care which one, it's interesting to see what people do with storytelling in a universe all of us here know).

    Darzil got a reaction from GroggyGolem in Mandalorian - Spoilers inside, don't read until watched   
    I had similar thoughts, but they were on the lines of if he's a clone, when were the clones from Clone Wars created. We looked it up later, Sifo-Dyas went to Kamino in 42 BBY, and clone army started production in 41 BBY, 50 years before The Mandalorian starts.
    On the episodes generally (watched them back to back tonight for the first time), seemed more fan service in the first, better direction in the second. Probably because Dave Filoni is more fan than director!

    If the kid is a clone, it's not a clone of Yoda. Yoda has light green eyes. And Yaddle is a redhead and a very different shade of green.
    When the Clone Troopers were cloned isn't relevant. It's not as if cloning was new technology at that point in time.
    To be fair, it was his live action directorial debute. For a first-timer he did quite well. Famuyiwa was better, but that doesn't make Filoni bad. 
    The amount of fan service is probably more down to the writer than the director, Jon Favreau for both episodes.

    HOTAS, an acronym of Hands On Throttle-And-Stick, is the name given to the concept of placing buttons and switches on the throttle lever and flight control stick in an aircraft's cockpit, allowing pilots to access vital cockpit functions and fly the aircraft without having to remove their hands from the controls.
