  1. Lol, well it's less scribbling on paper and flipping through a book, so maybe that's what they all mean. I just love how everyone keeps saying that these characters with almost 1000xp each are being lazy. I checked the characters over the weekend, the lowest spec someone has is 3 and the lowest FR is 3 (about to grab 4th with Sage tree) . But yeah, these players haven't "earned" their ratings
  2. you gotta pump those numbers up, those are rookie numbers
  3. I like that Idea too, that was how they got the initial +1 I mentioned. Plus they would be able To spend the xp on skills and powers. The only downfall, which isn't a big one, is that it's dependant on the situations I put them into rather than their own choice.
  4. This campaign has gone for almost 2 years, playing 2-4 times per month so like 50-70 sessions, that is hardly "fast forwarding to higher Force ratings" This is more along the lines of end game characters wanting to further progression without adding unnecessary fluff and clutter to their character sheets.
  5. how is 3-5 sessions of 5 hours each little or no effort? In the last 6 months they've essentiallly completed the knights of the old republic main quest... I thinks that's more that earned one or two extra force Rating. I don't Understand how buying a needless specialization That Won't be used by that player, just to get the force rating some how constitutes more "effort"
  6. that makes sense for a mixed party. But you also need to consider that the actual gains of adding force dice are marginal after a certain point. There's another forum post were Absol197 calculated the probability based on the number of dice. also, this system, as people have pointed out, is already more costly (with less reward) than the books system in my situation in particular though, everyone in the group is a force user (25 years after ROTJ as part of the new Jedi)
  7. apparently I had a stroke while I posted that comment. I edited it to be actual coherent sentences. I get what you're saying, but I personally think that option is too expensive. Especially when trying To get to higher levels.
  8. doing it that way would make it way to difficult to increase, the minimum a player would pay right now is 200 based off that. We only meet like 3 Times a month so it would take almost two months if I was being super generous
  9. It's not everyone, if it was I'd Do that, I gave them an initial +1 already. But I see what you're saying.
  10. that is a good idea, I've considered having the group share the cost of the new books, but the issue is who gets them if we stop playing
  11. Either contribute in a positive manner of don't say anything. I've already said most of them have 2-3 specializations and don't want to keep buying other ones. also, we only use the core book, because I can't afford to buy the rest.
  12. I understand what your saying. And I feel the same way for the most part. The issue really revolves around player feeling like some specializations don't match their characters and I don't want to restrict their growth because they want to have a particular focus
  13. Of the four players three of them started out with lightsaber specializations. Everyone at this point has at least two different specializations, but there's just a couple players that don't want to have to add additional specializations just to get the force rating
  14. Yes, they want a specific build and don't want to just keep buying new specializations
  15. if you're referring to "the legends of Luke skywalker" those are not all 100% fact, but more like stories passed from person to person, some based on truth, but they get warped each time they are told. The book it self is told from the pov of a child slave going to canto bight, so he's not exactly a historian
