DRAGONSTAR GENESYS

Recommended Posts

I like what people have for the most part.  I've never played Dragonstar, but the races are shaping up nicely. 

My big complaint for your dragon races would be the free bonus skill.  Not all skills there are created equally.  The free combat skill ranks are (in general) going to get far more use then a rank in streetwise.  I have noticed that with very few exceptions the Star Wars systems don't give combat skills as their bonus skills.  You might consider replacing them with something like Athletics, Resilience, Coordination, or the like.

Yeah, I would avoid giving any race a bonus skill rank in any combat skill except maybe Brawling.

updated the Dragonkins and centaur and added my Blank Specialization talent per requests. Do enjoy the Positive responses I am getting from everyone and it keeps my inspiration going for the crossover, now would be a big plus of someone from the FFG group would respond with hey we want to use your stuff for a Dragonstar setting book for GENESYS.

I'm in a similar boat for "Fallout".  ;)

I would have to look into trolls they are not covered in the original write up of dragonstar.

As for the dragons, original concept was the good dragons came up with a unified kingdom, so they all ruled first and now the evil dragons start their 5,000 years to rule the kingdom starting with the red dragons first.

We could easily change this concept but i do recommend buying the pdf of the original ?, they do help with understanding what i am trying to do here.

Am putting Races on hold for right now, since the original Races have been converted over, might revamp a couple later on after spending some time deciding how to incorporate Arcana and Divine into the system, Will look into races as people request, like one will be the troll as per a request though

Alright here we go with my final race conversion for right now, as usual let me know what you think:

Troll

Brawn: 3  Agility: 2  Intellect: 2

Cunning: 2  Willpower: 2  Presence: 1

Wound Threshold: 14+ Brawn

Strain Threshold: 9+Willpower

Special ability: Resilience 1 free rank

Burly: reduces any wielded or carried weapon's cumbersome quality and encumbrance rating by the number equal to

ranks in Burly to a minimum of 1

Strong Back: encumbrance 10+ Brawn instead of 5 + Brawn

Starting XP: 60

Troll was compared between Dungeons and Dragons and the Shadowrun troll as a special request. So let's talk about this...

That's really nice, I think you're getting a handle on balancing these. As a slight simplification you could go this direction:

Troll

Brawn: 4  Agility: 2  Intellect: 1

Cunning: 2  Willpower: 2  Presence: 1

Wound Threshold: 14+ Brawn

Strain Threshold: 8+Willpower

Special ability:

Resilience 1 free rank

Regeneration (same As Trandoshian, its really slow)

1 rank of Hard Boiled (spend 1 Advantage when recovering Strain at the end of an encounter to recover 1 wound)

60xp

 

It's a min/maxers Paradise, but also has some serious flaws

That is solid as a cross between SR and DND. Over the weekend I scanned Age of Rebellion at our FLGS. That is a massive book! A bit overwhelming trying to skim how to make a PC. They did not have Edge of the Empire, which I would have purchased. I was going to use those rules as the basis for a SR conversion since my buddies are SWd-out and love the SR setting.  Not much for cyberware in the core SW books. Looks like you need Special Modifications of Lords of Nal Hutta to get rules for gear that fits with cyberpunk.

EDIT: how would reach work in this system? Not relevant because of the more cinematic combat?

actually cybernetics is in several different books and you can check out the forums there is a massive index covering all the books from all three systems. My group actually likes the edge more than shadowrun. Pc creation is quite simple, Roll of obligation, than pick race and class and specialization, then spend your xp and finish up character. M`y players can have two characters made up in under an hour.

getting back into the Dragonstar conversion as my players have finally getting off the planet to explore their region of Space, so some of my creations will be making an appearance to them within the week or so. I do recommend downloading the Dragonlance stuff was put together quite well and the races in there could also be used for Dragonstar.
