    If the GM didn't see it, it didn't happen. That kind of behaviour is unacceptable. It will only get worse if you ignore it. It can have long lasting ramifications for you game; he will piss off other players and they might drop out, he will influence other players and they will become as bad as him or, he will get worse and worse and come up with more and more convoluted ways to "win" at the game that will make the game boring for you to run.
    Best to talk to the guy. Let him know that that kind of behaviour is not welcome in your game and if he doesn't like it he can find a different game. I know that sounds harsh, but if you want the game to keep running, it is better to deal with the Rules Lawyer quickly. If he is willing to curb his behaviour make sure he knows the "GM rulings supersede all rules" as that way he can't sit up coming up with dumb ways to jank your game.
    If you do want to run crafting and have rolls be made away from the table, use this site. Players and GMs can make transparent rolls away from the table here. Make sure they don't go do anything dickish like make several accounts for rolling though Sounds like your Rules Lawyer might think of that kind of thing.

    Personally I would leave them to deal with their consequences.  I would nuke the party with the super tough Hutton profile. It will teach them a lesson. Remember,  reducing the entire party to 0 wounds doesn't have to mean a TPK. It just means Tremonti beat them all and wounded them severely.  The next stage of your game can be the further consequences.  I'm not familiar with Long Arm of the Hutt so I don't really have context but I would make the next part of the game be about the party being indentured to Teemo.

    The fun thing about time in Star Wars is when you break out items and stuff from the Old Republic era with date notations from that period ( years around the Treaty of Corucent) and what your players trying to figure out how long ago that was!

    Not single. My girlfriend is cool. She clears out on game night
    I ended up extending the finalé of the pirate encounter to take up a full session and it worked like a charm. They chased the captain into the cockpit where he taunted them and began to slowly vent the ships atmosphere. While they scrambled looking for a way to fix that, the Captain jumped ship, back into the PC party's own ship. When they finally breached the cockpit, they were just into time engage their own ship with the pirate ship  In the meantime, another player whom had missed a previous session, was here for this session. He woke up in a box aboard the party's ship. The combat rounds revolved around the party operating the pirate's ship, trying to disable their own ship, while the PC who woke up in the box tried to fight the pirates whom had taken over the ship. It was a great session  Though, now the party need to go to Barab I for repairs - it's the nearest planet and they managed to near destroy their own ship  Ryloth will have to wait

    Grimstory, chillax, don't get offended when people are trying to help and you don't like the answer.  Apparently you annoyed your gm and that is the key issue.  If you and your gm are trying to work this out and are open to input from this community then ask your gm to post his side of the story in this thread, because until he does the rest of us don't really know what the situation is so can't provide meaningful advice.
    Also the point of the Droid tech spec is to enhance Droid not to steal them.  Usually the Droid tech builds or buys his own droid army rather than essentially mind ****** enemy droids.  I also don't think the gm should have let, what he apparently considers a problem to get so out of hand and he doesn't know any other way to fix the problem.

    So my players are on their way to Ryloth, which is the home of their mechanic. I have ton of plot written for her return home, only problem is that player won't be there tonight. I have already delayed the party by having them hijacked by pirates over the last two sessions, but they are about to free themselves and make their way to Ryloth. I feel like jamming another obstacle in their path will seem a bit unnatural and cumbersome, so I am wondering how I can deal with this. So far my ideas are as follows:
    1) They will get held up by incredibly polite Imperial customs when they land on Ryloth who will make them jump through all the hoops and inspect the combat droids in the party to see if they are regulation. This will make for a more social session while the party try to talk their way past customs. This could also end up happening quick and leave me high and dry.
    2) The Twi'lek PC could leave once they land to "take care of some things". Then I have the party do some Ryloth things; see the sights, go to massive underground nightclub/brothels, look for work - that kind of thing. This will also allow me to trigger a plot event (rebel terrorist attack during a parade celebrating the glory of the Empire) where the party will be caught up in the panic.
    3) This one is contingent on whether or not the party decide to steal the pirate's ship they are currently facing off with (I ran a heavily modified version of the "Welcome Aboard" modular encounter from Lords of Nal Huta). If they take that ship, once they get near Ryloth, the Imperials will hail them on comms and ask them to power down engines and prepare to be boarded. They will be accused of being the crew of a known pirate ship. This could result in some crazy space flight shenanigans while they try to avoid capture and need to get to another system to get the ship's transponder changed.
    I am also open to suggestions

    If the main plot revolves a missing player, either drop the plot for a session and have them play a squad of Stormtroopers straight out of the academy sent to quell a riot, attack a rebel outpost or collect intel for the ISB (coz they stand out like sore thumbs in white armour).
    Or go with the missing player idea - which means the engineer player may still miss some Obligation plots/other plots if they come up.
    OR ditch it and have a film/pizza/beer night....
    TBH I hate having to miss a session. I actually missed the BBEG fight for The Godsmouth Heresy  for PFRPG - I WAS SO P***** OFF the the GM still ran it. I know it was his campaign, hosted at his place etc OK I the PC got the XP/levelled up/loaded with treasure but I  found out afterwards that the other two players got, and I quote the GM, '...a bit bored with the dungeon bash...' because unlike me they hadn't had a 10 years or more break from rp'ing like I had and I would like to have participated in the BBEG after all the s*** my PC went through during the dungeon crawl - traps, biting insects, traps, fire traps, traps, electricty traps. The crawl became a comedy of errors I played a VERY incompetent Rogue.. not by choice, my dice luck sucks.
    Maybe ask ALL the players what they would like to do for that session.
    EDIT: The film night HAS TO BE A STAR WARS FILM or I'll send the boys around to administer Full Contact Persuasion Techniques

    I've been collecting up some videos/links etc for ambient background sound for during games. I have found a few great ones, mainly the ambience from the battleground games as well as some other things. I have yet to find a decent one for a straight up blaster fight. Anyone have any good links for some ambient background sounds? Specifically blaster fire.
    Something along the lines of this:

    McHydesinyourpants reacted to 2P51 in Failure when you must succeed   
    In that specific instance you could use it as a time sink and say they found some kind of hint or clue that what they're looking for is somewhere else.  You could also have another attack occur while searching as an explanation why it failed and that once completed they can try and finish searching.  You could have things found even on a success but perhaps they're broken, or some kind of auto destruct begins.
    The point is to try and not make rolls simply linear pass/fail, and try to create layers of success and failure based on results.  I always use the picking the locked door example. You aren't making a Skulduggery check to pick the lock, you're making the check to ultimately get past the door.  Failure doesn't mean you don't gain entry, it just means the alarm sounds, you suffer strain from a feedback shock, a patrol happens to be standing there just as you open it, etc.
