    What to smuggle?

    Something doesn't need to be restricted to be smuggled. Whoever runs the Black Market there is technically in the position to watch over what is sold and claim part of the cargo as customs. Those are criminals - rules certainly exist (otherwise there is no need to "smuggle" something inside) but they don't need to be fair. And Whyren's Reserve is a very good Corellian Whisky with a base price of 100 credits per bottle - if I were one of the Hutts I would claim as much of such cargo as I could get away with... personal Tribute *g*

    A lot of Whyren's Reserve for small bribing on social events and Gifts for good customers?! Alcohol loosens the tongue...

    Minimum crew required

    That's correct - on page 60 bottom right.

  5. Just be happy that you don't need/want a translated version. Over here the reprint of the EotE Core was so late, people had to wait over 1 year just to get their hands on the reprint. The people responsible went to only give ANY word about dates when they can guarantee what they are saying - this reduces news to the point where they actually hold the books in their own hands. And to make this even better: the last thing we are waiting for (and are able to preorder it for a long while already) is Dangerous Covenants - not that the company itself would have any problems to translate those books faster... the whole Star Wars RPG-licensing is a mess...

    "Stealing" a droid

    Does the Group include someone skilled with Computers? -> memory wipe alone would solve most of the problems - although I think killing the former owner would work pretty well also. On the other Hand, you could just go the route to let them start without those party roles filled and set the first adventures to get a crew and keep flying ( :D ). And when I say, crew, I mean everything good or bad you could think of to make further adventures possible. Maybe not an awesome doctor who is hunted by the whole ISB because he kidnapped his sister from some secret research lab. But something that could work as a plot hook in the future, after they became an important part of the crew. They could even be connected to one of the obligations although no one knows about it at the beginning?! You could throw in Droids as well as Persons - just try to make em interesting, give them a few quirks and make em likable as well as skilled and somewhat loyal. Stuff like some friendly mechanic and his droid help them to fix a few problems with the ship but gets killed by the bad guys in the adventure, leaving his mourning but eagerly and helpfull astromech behind. But where the mechanic got this not at all wiped droid from (even wiping resistant?!), will be something to solve in the future... As long as you don't have a bunch of paranoid murder hobos this could work out as some really interesting stuff. If your table is not into something like that, take the memory wipe option of stolen droids but use some specific obligation to counter the value - to "pay it off" in some way.
  7. Nice! Exactly what I was looking for - not too big and a proxy war is the best i could hope for - so many possibilities, they'll hate me
  8. I'm planning to send my EotE ne'er-do-wells on some "covert-ops" adventures (sneak in do some things and don't get shot) on a World themed similar to Balmorra at SW-ToR times (a bit more urban would be great). We are set shortly after the Battle of Yavin and I don't know of something fitting officially mentioned. I have no problem coming up with some stuff on my own but if there are fitting mentions in some stuff I don't know, it would be even better. Are there even any Planets with somewhat you could call an ongoing warlike situation at that time?
  9. That alone makes you part of the "reasonable side" when it comes to the Internet!
  10. When looking at the actual topic some people demonize the Movie and the people who actually like it. While the what I would call "more reasonable side" has tendencies creeping in to do the same as soon as they read "I haven't seen it myself, but...". It's already bad enough if one side is showing such behavior. Even if it was actually stated to be bad wording "you lost your right to whine if you haven't watched it yourself" statements are a direction the "reasonable side" should always try to avoid as well as calling people either trolls or stupid because their opinions differ. I'll stop to ride that dead horse now as this discussion is also starting to go in circles. Have a nice day/night, everyone!
  11. I like Pie too! So informed equates to first-hand experience only, and anything other has no right to even mention what they think by doing research outside of first-hand experience? The only people who can discuss the horridness of Landmines are the ones that put them to use and the ones that survived the explosion of one?! That sounds like the point from some extreme left feminists towards men that they need to shut up because they are no woman and thus can't bring anything useful to the table... I'm not defending the people who just continue to rage about single points and try to push their views onto others - the point that I'm against this sort of behavior is the reason I'm against the demonization of even thinking about mentioning an opinion if you have no first-hand experience, because this is equally close-minded and doesn't help any side. Sure first-hand opinions have the theoretical potential to be a lot more useful for further and deeper digging discussions, but that doesn't make every first-hand opinion superior to any relying on research. Even if someone has seen the Movie it is possible to state invalid points about it as well as people are able to state valid points by looking at the different sources of "documentation" around the Movie. P.S. Calling people either a troll or stupid is also a quite aggressive way (and insulting) to add nothing useful to any discussion...
  12. Just WOW! Looks like a really great PC team!
  13. "For the purpose of further discussion" would depend on the actual point of discussion I tend to believe. I won't go into TlJ examples as there already was too much talking in circles in the other Thread, but some points for Movies like overall Story Arcs can be shortened to just a few words and you don't need to watch Avatar (the Pandora one) to develop a justifiable opinion about the potential Pocahontas rip off. But you actually must have seen Avatar if you want to talk about the (at least I think) amazing visualization - although 3D was unnecessary. So the overall demonization of opinion building through second-hand sources (and communicating it) on pretty much every aspect isn't helping anyone, as well as the tendency of the people against the new Trilogy to lose a lot of "Discussion Etiquette". But no matter what - I can't imagine that there is anything that hasn't been said already regarding TlJ somewhere on the internet - so I should stop myself trying to ride that dead horse.
  14. Correct me if I understood this wrong but wasn't one of your subcontext points that no one should form an opinion about a Movie itself (and not just not going to watch it) through other sources than their own experience and then join the discussion with those points of view about the topic at hand? If I got that context wrong - my bad!
  15. No, I have intentionally dumped some Movies because all Feedback from sources I could trust in the specific genre was negative, so I spared myself from wasting lifetime to just prove that point (i probably should add that this doesn't make those bad Movies for everyone - just for me). That is part of the "Learn from the experience of others (which you can trust in the specific matter)" thing, but I agree - no one should be bashing anyone for just another opinion because as we all know "Opinions are like a**holes — Everyone's got one"...
