Ok, sounds like there is some time conflicts, but I'm glad there's interest.  I haven't been a GM for a FFG game yet, but I used to GM for Wizards of the Coast games, so I don't mind being the GM if no one else is interested.  What times can people make it to a game session and what is your preferred time?

 

6 pm PST Friday - Yes

7 pm PST Friday - Yes

6 pm PST Saturday - Yes

7 pm PST Saturday - Yes (preferred time)

 

If there are any other times people would rather meet, please let me know.  We probably won't be able to start this weekend, so lets plan for the following weekend.  Either September 5th or 6th can be our first session.  As far as a premise, I am good with doing anything EotE, but I don't have AOR or F&D material yet, so I'd prefer to stick with anything inside of the EotE unless there is popular demand for one of the other two.  Let me know what your preference is, I'm pretty flexible and can go buy something if everyone wants to play a different version.

all those work for me.

I would really like to try out the F&D stuff. and I think Gribble would like to as well.

I think diversifying the party is good. a little edge and f&d makes for a good party

Honestly, from the GM side, there really isn't much difference in prepping for an EotE game vs an AoR or F&D game, but as I said I'm happy for anything FFG/Star Wars.

:)

 

In terms of times, at this stage I could only really regularly commit to 6pm PST Saturday or 7pm PST Saturday, with the 6pm slot being my preference. That being said, neither this coming weekend, nor the weekend after (5/6 Sept) work for me as I have other engagements planned for my Sunday afternoon (X-wing minis this weekend, and a warmachine/hordes tournament next weekend). 

 

After that I should be ok, at least for a fortnightly game.

Ok, I don't have a problem with that as far as starting 2 weekends from now.  Will give us more time to get more players on board.  I'm good with doing F&D, I just need to do some research on it.  Not finished going through the rules in the EotE book yet, but sounds like I'll have plenty of time.

 

Since we'll have about 2 weeks, will give plenty of time for character creation and coming up with some background story for the group.  I've never used Google Hangouts, but I've done game sessions with mIRC and Skype before, so should workout.  Anyone else used Google Hangouts before?

I have used hangouts with the roll20 for mapping and the Edge of the Empire hangout tool for dice.

Are you guys cool with starting at knight level? 150XP after chargen and lightsaber for F&D characters 10K credits for others?
7PM sat seems to be what everyone can do so far.

Indeed. That question is a fairly common pub quiz/trivia question here in NZ. Everyone assumes it'd be NZ, South Africa or perhaps England. No one suspects the US!

:)

 

I don't mind 7s, but here at least it's very much the "beer & pretzels" kind of game. The NZ leg of the 7s, held in Wellington where I live, is pretty much just a big 2 day fancy dress piss up... good fun even if the rugby is just something that happens in the background.

So it sounds like Nevermind is GM

Gribble PC Jedish
Daeglan PC Jedish
Kerfuffin925 PC troublemaker of some sort....I am sure he will deny it too....

If Kerfuffin does an edge character he gets a ship.
Gribble do we want holocron or mentor?

Well, I did some research on it.  Looks like I would need to go pick up the beta rulebook for Force and Destiny to properly start a game using it.  It does actually look pretty good, so I won't object to buying it if everyone really wants to play as a Force-using character.  I would rather play the EotE first and then maybe transition to F&D later, but it's up to you guys.  I guess I should ask the question, who already owns the following right now?

 

Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook?  Yes

Age of Rebellion Core Rulebook?  No

Force & Destiny Core Rulebook Beta?  No

 

Let me know what you have and that should help us decide which version we're best equipped to play.  I know the basic mechanics are all the same, but someone is going to have to know what Force Skills and Talent Trees are in the F&D Beta before we start a game in it.  If someone else has the AOR or the F&D and they want to make a character for that, I'm cool with it.  I just need a break down of what different rules are going to apply in game and descriptions on the character sheets of the skills/talents.

 

Edit:  Daeglan, sounds like you already have the F&D Beta, so by all means feel free to make a Force User.  :D

You don't really need F&D to GM it and I am sure we can get you the parts you actually need. Which mostly is the stuff on Morality and how to make an inquisitor.

i have the book,

You would need the talents we actually have. the rules for lightsabers we have, The force powers we have. the rules for morality, The rules for making an inquisitor. Mostly to beat on us :P


And yes the book is very cool and you probably will want it because it is cool. But for your end of the table not much you need as the running of things in Edge covers most of it :)

Nevermind - I have all three books, and yeah, I'm sure we can get you the stuff you need for F&D.

 

Daeglan - Probably prefer holocron, although I'm not sure if both groups would get a starting pick. If I was GMing, I'd probably say that the group as a whole still only gets one starting bonus, you just widen the pool of options based on the group composition. If we go with that (and depending on the campaign) I'd suggest we go with a ship of some kind. If we get both, I'm easy on holocron or mentor - will have to give character options and backstory some thought.

:)

 

In terms of character I'm probably thinking some sort of kel dor seer, or a nautolan warrior type. Perhaps aggressor on the darker side of the morality scale if that will fit with other characters and the story Nevermind has in mind. Kind of a "clone wars Anakin" mentality of shoot first, ask questions later.

I am thinking of a human with Mystic Seer, and the Ataru Striker tree. I would love to do 2 shoto Sabers. With Ilum or Krayt dragon pearl crystals.

If Nevermind is cool on starting at knight level.... I am thinking more warrior monk walking the lighter side.

I guess i would kind of be your balance. Striking the right place is better than striking the wrong place first...

Sounds good. If you're thinking seer then I'll definitely go the nautolan aggressor path, assuming the other players and Nevermind as GM are ok with me doing that. If not I'll likely tone it down a little on the aggression/dark side path and go more of a warrior/brawler rough and tumble "good guy" type (kind of like a less hairy Chewie).

I think a good hearted overly aggressive type is fine. Skate that edge. :) Just don't go over :P

A holocron is cool with me.  The reason I kind of think of doing multiple compatible group items makes sense is it allows every part of the party to get what they need.
