  1. Squee, indeed! I'm somewhat disappointed that Napoleon Bonaparte isn't the leader for the French though. And I echo the sentiment that I think that the art for the original looked better, but hexes are going to be a massive game changer. I liked where they were going with the square blocks from the original, but the hexagonal format is simply superior, in my opinion.
  2. Just take my money already FFG! I truly hope they capture the charm of using your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats in social encounters and that there is some version of V.A.T.S. for combat. Not like there's a single deal breaker about Fallout, so much potential. Here's rooting for 5 and 6 player variants as well!
  3. You could try playing the 6 player variant and control multiple houses, that might work for a two player game. i.e Baratheons, Tyrells, and Starks vs the Dornish, Greyjoys, and Lannisters. I've never tried it myself but would be interested to see if it works. Thematically it makes a bit of sense, since the game takes place during the War of the Five Kings, and both Baratheons and Tyrells vouched for Stark support, and Tyrion attempted to marry Myrcella off to a Dornish Prince while the Greyjoys went after the Starks. All in all if you get the game, I doubt you'll be disappointed. It's an excellent substitute for Risk.
  4. I'd be interested to learn how your "Honeypot" player gets multiple boost die for her attacks. Do the PC's spend advantage and collectively give her all the boost die? Or does she have some talents or abilities that stack and provide it? I was under the impression only things like taking aim, assistance from other PC's, or perhaps a superior firing position grant a boost die.
  5. My PC's utterly failed Debts to Pay, they never even found the droids and couldn't have cared less about the miners. They found the money under the desk and hightailed it out of there. Its important to note that they have no intention of returning the money to Bargos the Hutt either, and this is the second time they've insulted him. The Master Bounty Hunter card is in their future I fear.
  6. I don't think defying the Jedi council made Qui-Gon or Obi-Wan any less of a candidate for an ideal Jedi, quite the contrary it may make them even better Jedi. That's tantamount to saying that if you disagree with Congress you're a bad American, which is obviously wrong. Also if Yoda isn't an ideal Jedi, who is? When 900 years old I reach, look as good, I will not.
  7. I had to look that up to believe it, it does mean second to last, that's pretty funny. I did mean it as if he was a rival to the best, which I thought was just covering my tracks for Jedi from the extended canon I'm unfamiliar with. I stand by the statement that Anakin and Luke lost limbs wielding blue sabers, and that Obi-Wan died wielding a blue saber, which I think might lead to a subconscious animosity towards blue sabers. The original trilogy depicted stronger Jedi and Sith as wielding colors other than blue, so when people say "Blue is for p***ies", its just a reaction to the Hero's they love getting the axe sporting a blue light saber or dying out-right not even fighting with one. The latter of which is definitely a great scene and plot mechanic, but the blue saber lost to the red saber and that's what people see, not that Obi-Wan chose a more powerful form.
  8. Members of the Skywalker family all seem to lose limbs when they have blue sabers. Anakin faired much better with a red saber as Darth Vader, and Luke faired much better with a green saber as Master Skywalker. Poor Obi-Wan stuck with blue till the very end though, but I'd like to think if he wasn't in hiding he'd have upgraded his crystals, maybe not though. He was the penultimate example of the Guardian class Jedi.
  9. I just realized that on the PC character sheets, there is a subsection called Custom Skills, with appropriate places to upgrade ranks in them as well. Were these built in as a contingency for future updates to the system, or could I have let my PC's imaginations run wild with it as long as they paid the appropriate non-career cost of the upgrades? Honestly, I don't know how that didn't catch my glance earlier, or any of my PC's for that matter.
  10. Right on, solid advice all around. Thanks!
  11. Oh wow, that gives Utinni! the possibility of being a much stronger ability than I realized. So to specify, since they're still doing EotE campaigns and are in the Outer Rim, my Outlaw Tech PC could theoretically make a Daunting or Formidable Mechanics Check, use the two ranks of Utinni! to remove two setback, making a Daunting check more like a Hard check with setback, maybe even use Utility Belt when he upgrades his talent tree and flip a destiny point over to just whip up cybernetics all willy-nilly? In addition, he chose a Medic droid as his companion and has the Speaks Binary talent. Would he be able to add a boost die to the Medic Droid and have the medic droid assist their Colonist Doctor with said boost die during the transplant procedure? I fear abuse, but we're new to the system so I really don't know how it'd play out.
  12. I would like to add to the initial question: Can Uttini! work for ultra rare items like cybernetics? Nothing specifically has happened with my group, but My Outlaw tech asked a session or two ago about wanting Cybernetic Eyes enhancements and whether he could fashion them himself if he found the parts with Uttini! He's only rolling YYG right now so I told him I doubt it, but eventually, could it work like that?
  13. My penny to the Wishing Well would be the game Cevasse as a miniatures game as described throughout A Storm of Swords-A Dance of Dragons. Maybe with expansions to include specific characters from the extended canon like Balaerion the Dread for different Dragon pieces, or the Golden Company or Second Sons as infantry pieces, Knights of the Vale/Stormlands for Calvary etc. etc. The list really could go on for 6000 pages just like the books.
  14. Har! I would be interested to learn how such a silly weapon worked out! Like a Darth Maul double bladed weapon with one end as a vibroblade and the other end a lightsaber? Or would the lightsaber come out the same end as the vibrosword, and make a light spear of sorts? If it feels wrong its because it sounds absolutely ridiculous.
  15. Har! Souvenir of Cloud City Casino Bespin, that's hilarious! I'd feel like Lando Calrissian with a Colt-45, or a DL-44-45 in the Star Wars cannon. I'll have to look that up, I work in an office so I can get The Man to spot me the ink.
