Dragonstar with Star Wars: Edge of the Empire System?

14 posts in this topic

I think Dragonstar with EotE rules could and should be done. I believe what it will take is a group to homebrew the tweaks into that world and divorce it from the D20 D&D world.

 

I have many thoughts on that and cannot wait to see how the Force works with the last Core Book of FFG's system. I am sure that could be converted from for powers to spells (both wizard and cleric). 

 

But who knows, maybe FFG sees a sleeping dragon with Dragonstar. This was my favorite system until EotE came out, and I still love it now.

I recommend broad strokes. Don't try to make everything line up because it will never fit. If I have something that feels like magic and fight something that looks like a mind flayer then i will call the conversion a success. Most of the careers should cross over nicely.

it can be done since there is a game system which can not be named here that has been converted that would help with the conversion, just check the edge forums you will find it.

I am working on something for this as I have found some good Fantasy rules (NDS Fantasy) in Edge of the Empire forums and trying to get permission from the creator to use some of his rules since the original classes have been done already. I recommend downloading these rules as they are well thought out so far. I will keep everyone in the loop of I hear anything new on this.

My recommendation is to download the NDA fantasy rules in the edge forums, I officially have permission to use that is our starting point for converting dragonstar to edge rules...

This is just a draft always looking forward to see what everyone thinks, these are not full blown Dragons, these are player character types and I wanted to see what everyone else thinks of this write up. Always look forward to everyone feedback, Still playing around with the Force point trying to decide what benefits the force die would do with the character. I was thinking maybe it is white dot could be a bonus success and Black dot could be a failure and can only roll with class and specialization skills only until I tailor the magic system from NDS fantasy system for the game.

 

Please give feedback!!!

Now we have to wait and see what Fantasy flight does after the release of the Genesys to see if they will bring back old gaming properties. I would love to see this as one of the systems they port over to Genesys. Might even start to work on it since I do have the Dragonstar system in my Star Wars game now. Looking into the Characters come across the "Long Road" that will connect to the other worlds.
