The legend continues…

 

8. The first time you fly (or fly against) a Scum Han build and you realize that the 2 dice primary is rather deceptive.

9. When your friend asks you “OK, but what’s you plan against swarm lists?”

10. When your squad of humble generics takes on an arc-dodging Ace lists and ends up taking it the EFF out (AKA the 2019 Toronto System open meta).

11. When you lure Poe into a kill box and then end up throwing FIVE blanks in six dice (everyone had a focus, too).

12. When you are flying HORRIBLY, but your magical red dice just bail you out (opposite of 11.)

13. When you are eliminated from making the cut early in a big tournament, but then stick with it, do your best, and end up clawing your way into the top 32.

I lerves BBP, and my FLGS has a solid menu of regular bottles, seasonal bottles, and a few taps; but a dark beer just feels “Star Wars” to me.

And now because I am ill as heck, I am rewatching Fury Road. Thank you.

Bonus points for the B5 gif!!!

Alas, couldn't find a Starfury one which looked right. :D

Premise for a Starfury in X-Wing:

2/3/4/0 statline. Focus/Evade/Boost/Barrel Roll. Dial with all basic 1s and 2s (blue straight and bank), white 3 banks and straight, 4-straight.  Red 4 K, Red 2 S-Loop, Red 1 Reverse straight.

Configuration:

Forward Thrusters: After you fully execute a K Turn, S-Loop, or Reverse, flip this card.

Reverse Thrusters: Treat your Reverse maneuvers as blue.  After you Perform a Boost or Barrel Roll action or execute a maneuver other than a Reverse maneuver, flip this card.

When you get off-topic:

Hmm. Drop advanced maneuvers, config and Boost action and you've just about have what I've been theory crafting them as. I see them being able to rotate after fully executing a maneuver by treating the maneuver as one difficulty harder. Ditto with after a Barrel Roll. Yours catches their ability to "drift" which mine misses. :)
