    @Rabobankrider Is it just normal char gen? What ewok stats do you want me to use?

    "Korath, bind the scraps around your feet. It'll work... It'll just be awfully uncomfortable making your way if the snow gets thick but maybe it'll wear out that youngling of yours, kriff he's still going full speed. Does it ever turn off?"

    If we are going with that ill have to think about the build a bit differently i was looking at the unleash conflict thing from baron do as i was gonna use force lightening but flavored as a bit kore elemental in nature.

    The whole point is that most skills overlap. Thats like, part of the whole idea behind the system. Different ways to do things... Say there is a rope bridge thats out. Both coordination abd athletics are both fine, however the possible outcomes or difficulties might be different. During a shootout i may allow both negotiation, deception or coercion to try and talk your way out depending on the context, maybe all of the above... Not all with the same difficulty.

    Trying to sneak your guy on board via a job interview. Mechanics/presence makes more thematic sense than charm. RAW points out more than once that you can combine different skills and attributes. I think handling everything with a blanket charm is boring. It also has nothing to do with game balance. Its also not raw to just lump it as charm thats your assumption.

    I don't think allowing a mechamic to use a presence/mechanic check usurps the charmer. How many people will care about their mechanics expertise?

    I think all of this works. RAW certainly says at times combining skills with alternate attributes makes sense. I actually wish this was hard built into the system more so people feel freer to do it. I think it makes perfect sense to do a check ysing your skills in mechanics but presence as the base. I think you ultimatly have to decide on the intention behind why they are chatting it up. Most conversations should still fall on charm, doesnt need to be cloying you it can just be you being nice, coercion, even if your intimidation is only a subtle display of dominance or power to impress, deception, boasting or white lies, negotiation, even if thats for your life like Saul Goodman, streetwise or cool to speak like a local cool or if your trying to either blend in or stand out as the fonz of the party.
  8. If you do decide to play this more conspiracy investigation, I'd suggest as the GM you make a large web of the conspiracy. It should include many layers with lines showing how they are related. Occasionally leave a node blank and fill it in as the story progresses.

    "Good day sir. Fine avians you have there... Yes Kark the stables are not a bad option. We could find coats cheaper and hardier than their fashionable relatives." Drez'n nods curtly at various passerbys. He admires the sun as its rays turn the white snow into a glistening expanse.

    I think using the baron do force tradition as the mechanics for ewok shamanism sounds very close if that's not an issue @Rabobankrider I plan to build this guy as a force wizard, focusing on protect and unleash, and alter

    How does a house cat have higher brawn than a bothan?

    "Shall we be going?" Drez'n hollers annoyed, "We do have a galaxy to save!"
