    Brawl isn't just for punching, it's for grappling and pinning down opponents who are trying to escape. The weapons aren't great for brawl (until the next book at least) but it's good to have a skill for when you don't have a weapon. The characters with high brawl and the ones knocking down guards in a prison escapes or doing cool kung-fu moves in front of a market square of people to earn some much needed credits.

    In Legends at the very least (and from what I can see from Star Wars Rebels) an Inquisitor tries turning their quarry to the dark side and recruit them before they skip straight to killing them. Give the option to the player to either fall or feign falling to the dark side, have the other players stage a prison break in the time it takes for the Jedi to be dragged before the Emperor or you always have the Deus ex machina option.

    MrTInce reacted to HappyDaze in I have some questions...   
    Try it like this:
    Minion group of four minions with WT 4. Minion Group WT is thus: 4/8/12/16
    When you exceed 4, the group loses a minion. When you exceed 8, it loses the next.
    Critical Hits remove the rightmost WT value rather than inflicting additional Wounds (this still eliminates a minion).
    So, if you have a hit for 5 Wounds (after Soak) and a critical hit, you have taken down two minions as the WT now looks like 4/8/12/16. Another 4 Wounds (after Soak) drops another as the group is now at 9 Wounds. If that second hit also scored a critical hit, then the group is removed from play as you've exceeded the WT of the group (9 Wounds against 4/8/12/16).

    Well it states a "ritually prepared item", which implies some force use and I'm sure we'll get more flavour on this in the book.
    Maybe other characters could ritually prepare an item for another character, a leader sending their cronies into an area with no weapons that suddenly appear in their hands is very dark...

    Also consider that Supreme Precision Strike lets you choose a critical from the hard table for three strain this devastating. Essentially breaking off limbs or blinding people in a fight is quite scary!
    Think of the enemy morale when they see the ewok martial artist breaking off storm trooper limbs!

    I think for me the fist-fight on the plane in Raiders of the Lost Ark, illustrates this system's typical brawl better than almost anything.
    If you don't have much by way of special talents, you're probably going to be beating each other around for a while. After 6-10 turns one side will eventually go down, either from Crits or finally being WTed.
    A more dedicated brawl combatant will have some talents and skill ranks though, which will speed things up. I honestly suspect that Zeb's KOing of Stormtroopers had as much to do with Brawl Crits as Wounds.
     
    By extension putting a serious Brawler next to just some guy with ranks in Brawl will probably look a lot like the Happy/Widow fight into the Hammer offices in Iron Man 2. The guy with a rank or two will hammer away at one opponent inflicting wounds taking a beating in the process, while the Martial Artist will mop the floor with everyone else, largely due to talents like unarmed parry and Iron Body allowing them to absorb more damage and crit like a banana respectively.

    Try martial artist with a dip into steel hand adept to get iron body (I think that's the name of it, top row) to get, your crit rating down to 1 advantage (or you could play a green nikto  and not worry about that).  If you're ok with being force sensitive, start with steelhand adept (warrior book) you'll have pierce equal to force rating and with the enhance power and appropriate upgrades be able to add force dice to brawl checks. 
    Or go the gadgeteer (deadly accuracy) /doctor (pressure point) route, pressure point ignores soak, does stun damage with bonus damage equal to ranks in medicine (can be 5), with another +5 from deadly accuracy your doing a base 10+brawn stun damage that ignores soak, with a decent roll you can 1 hit ko most characters.

    MrTInce reacted to Donovan Morningfire in Encumberance and burly   
    So with a Brawn of 5, that PC has a base Encumbrance Threshold of 10, and I'm assuming it's higher due to gear such as a utility belt or load-bearing gear.
    With the three ranks of Burly, so long as the total Encumbrance of those items is under his PC's Encumbrance Threshold, then yes by RAW the PC can carry all that gear without penalty.  Of course, any PC can lug that much stuff, but they're going to be encumbered, which has penalties that I don't recall as I've never seen a PC exceed their Encumbrance Threshold.
    So from a purely rules perspective, yes you were being overly harsh as you're denying the character something they're legally allowed to do just because you thought it was silly.  Granted, the player's also being a bit silly be wanting tote around that much firepower, so you're not totally out of bounds.
    That said, I see where you're coming from as it's not very realistic to have someone just be tugging around so much gear without a problem.  Apart from this system not being a reality-based tactical simulator, remember that this PC has invested in things that would allow him to lug around large items without much trouble, given it's very difficult to start with a Brawn of 5 (I'm assuming he started with a 4 and then took Dedication) and he's invested lots of XP into getting those Burly talents.  As a concession, I'd suggest requiring him to have something that permits lugging extra gear (like load-bearing gear) to justify being able to carry and be able to access that stuff in the midst of combat without difficulty.  In game terms, if he wants to be able to draw or stow that stuff as just a maneuver, he needs something that lets him effectively carry the stuff, otherwise it'll take two maneuvers to draw or stow those extra weapons.  The heavy repeating blaster is on a sling, so that's already taken care of.
    It's worth noting that the weapons the player wants their character to lug around are military-grade weapons, and as a Rebel (I'm assuming this given the forum you're posting in) he's by default a terrorist guilty of sedition and treason against the Empire, the current ruling government body.  Apart from active battlefields, there's really no way that PC should be able to just waltz around carrying that sort of firepower; it'd be akin to a someone walking down a city street with a 50-caliber machine gun, which isn't going to go over well with the local authorities at all.  So that's something to keep in mind for when this PC wants to engage in activities that aren't centered around combat on an open battlefield.

    Just to add, but having watched Rebels after reading the novel, it was kind of jarring to see Kanan bust out his lightsaber so fast because of how much he focused on keeping his identity as a Jedi hidden throughout the book.
