Question for this thread: how often do you use capital ships in your games? same for starfighters?

>> No.33096574


The first thing I'm going to do in my next session is deploy some Z-95s on my crew as they try to escape detention on The Wheel. Anywhere from flights of 2-4, depending on what members of my crew are available next week.

To those using capital ships in FFGSW games, get yourself a copy of the AoR beta. There's rules for special attack options for silhouette 5+ ships that really spice up larger-scale ship combat, since there's no gaining of advantage or anything when you're flying something twenty city blocks long.

I ran a space combat one of and found the players to have a huge advantage over simple ships, especially if the players are in some customized starfighters. If you think it's enough, add another. Put the fear of space combat into them. Or have the other star fighters use some of the tactics xwing used where they will have a wing man swoop in and nail the guy going for a kill shot on another npc. Don't know the name of the tactic...

If they're jumping into corvettes remember to make manning such a ship hurt their wallet... Or else as setback for shoddy crew member.

RIght. So.

This has probably been said before, but I can't go without getting on my soapbox: The clone soldiers were one of the Jedi Order's greatest failures.

Not because they got their ass handed to them by Order 66.

But because these beings that were supposed to herald the truth and balance of the Force to the universe took one look at a country's worth of children being made and indoctrinated to fight and die, their blood to be spilled like so many drops of rain, and they said

Given the education and engineering that went into clones to make them battle-ready, I'm not so sure. I mean, any loss of life is not good for the Force. But any war is going to lead to death and suffering, and the clones were a tool for minimizing the suffering inflicted on the galaxy. Would you rather the CIS droids burn and pillage planets left and right?

Not to mention the rotting within the Jedi Order before the clones got involved, but that's a totally separate matter.

Clones are only a step up from droids in most peoples eyes. They don't have the same rights that natural born do... although the Jedi do later "humanize" their clone warriors with names and feelings of companionship towards them.

Yeah, they saw the least of all evils with the clones. The PDF forces of each world were inefficient in defending their home worlds from the droid armies. The republic needed an army that the GAR was supplying. If they were to stop the threat they would need warriors to fight the droid masses.
Sometimes they became warriors themselves and didn't realize it until it was too late

>> No.33098812

>children being made and indoctrinated to fight and die
what do you exactly think the old jedi order was DOING? it is literally a bunch of children trained from more or less birth as suicide cops. I doubt the child indoctrination bit would even register with them.
but to answer the question, what happened was pretty much the clone army showed up outta the blue ready to fight, the republic looked at the jedi and said 'yep, you're leading them'. the jedi didn't really have a choice in the matter, any more than the clones did (the clones WANTED to fight, it's in their blood, almost literally)

>> No.33098815


Whole thing was a cock-up really.

It may *not* have been very avoidable by the time it got that far, goodness knows Palpatine was no slouch, and he had some right and proper smart bastards under his thumb.

But none of the mainline material we're supplied with shows even a moment of thought about the morals of clone trooper usage (and hardly any thought about 'oh this might not be on the level what with all the suspicious shit around it). I haven't seen the cartoons, but the Jedi barely seem to consider the clones as people, which they obviously are (if strange people).

And talking about the CIS and their droids, or more precisely the issue of droids at all in that setting. That's even worse! Many of them are obviously sentient, and others intelligent to various degrees.

>> No.33098821

A Super Star Destroyer. However, it wasn't statted as a whole. Instead, it was used as the environment and justification for the PCs fighting stupid amounts of turrets, TIEs, and other capital ships. Basically, they flew along the SSD's hull disabling hardpoints like turrets, sensor arrays, and shield generators. It was the Battle of Endor and one of the players successfully pulled the Arvel Crynyd Handshake. As Crynyd, too, because his actual PC bit the dust in their last mission.

There's also the fact that the clones were born and bred specifically for ass-kicking. They were likely far more competent than any regular mooks the Republic's constituents could muster. Thus, they probably were the quickest solution the Republic had for ending the war.

I agree, it was fucked up on both sides. And yeah, it's gray as shit on both sides, but unfortunately, the galaxy isn't always as clear-cut as the Jedi Code would have you to believe.

And yeah, droid rights on top of it is super not cool. I secretly root for pro-droid revolutionaries, even if 99% of the time they get switched into "Kill all life-forms!" mode.

>> No.33098906

>clones WANTED to fight

And that's not entirely wrong or bad necessarily, but they were brought up to do it, taught from birth that it was what they were for, what else are they supposed to do?

Good points about how the Jedi would have probable cultural biases in recognizing how bloody Darkside they were being.


shipfag you bring up another good point: Jedi entanglement with the Old Republic.

Big problem really. An order like the Jedi needs to be wary of how buddy-buddy they get with governments, because reality may call upon them to help them one week, then kick their shit in the next, depending.

One of the comics, dont' remember which, had a thing with Quigon and Obi-wan that highlighted that decently I think. They ended up on some planet, something something lost and fighting, plot... anyway, there was an obvious scumbag that they were sheltering for a minute, they found him trapped in another creature's hunting trap, and Quigon freed, healed, and fed him, even though he was shady as shit.

He did it because it was the right thing to do.

And when that scumbag brought back a bunch of guys in the middle of the night to kill the Jedi and take their stuff, Quigon cut him down with little remorse.

Because in that moment it was the right thing to do.

Sometimes, the right thing for the Jedi to do would have been to tell the Republic to go fuck itself, because not all the CIS were lawl-evil. Instead they dived headfirst into propping up the galactic authority *no matter what*.

So yeah, they were pretty screwed.

>> No.33098956


As I've stated in these threads before, the Jedi's position of galactic peacekeepers really interferes with their monk-like ideals of serenity and balance. It's one thing to preach about harmony and light and all that nice stuff, but when there's someone threatening harm to others immediately, it's hard to respond with anything but force.

>> No.33098973

oh yeah, the old order was really riding the line with the whole arm-of-the-republic thing. you get things like the OP, where the jedi ruled in favour of SLAVERS because of dickassness/old republic pull.

i once saw a AU story where dooku never went sith and started the CIS to try to remove sith control of the republic, and the jedi get split up on the issue, and things get BAD when the republic brings in 'grey' jedi to fill the resulting gaps. would really like to find it again, but alas

Well, most...

>> No.33098997

Maybe they were the quickest solution. But so were planet-busters.

One of the big arguments that my brother and I have sussed out is that Anakin was less the 'Chosen One' than Luke was, but that even if he was, he didn't just bring balance to the Force by (finally) stopping Palpatine, but by dropping the hammer on the Jedi Order as well.

I mean, Anakin had choices every step of the way, and he could have (and should have) made better ones that might have led to better outcomes for everyone, but the Order was fucked, the Council too egotistical, Councilors like Yoda closer to the Dark than they ever would like to admit, and it had to be brought down.

Not the best way to do it, giving in to Palpatine like that, though.

Maybe they would have, but there were strong forces on their Council that were more fucked than they realized, and I don't have faith that there were enough Masters like Quigon left to help turn that tide, especially post-war.

I mean we can look to how the survivors tended to act after Order 66: they ran the fuck away and hid. And they weren't always wrong in doing so, but several of them didn't even get shit done in their corners of the galaxy, as I recall.

And then others were like Jerec.

We aren't even inferring it, we are straight TOLD it rather than shown it. My biggest complaint with Lucas is that he just TELLS without showing any of it.

We are told Obi Wan is a harsh master and doesn't trust Anakin... by Anakin.

We are TOLD Anakin is the chosen one, but never see it in his actions. Every time we see him doing something it's just some simply saber trick and he either gets an arm chopped off or multiple limbs hacked off. At least in TCW we see him overpower two EXTREMELY powerful force users and force them to kneel before him.

We are TOLD that Padme and Anakin are in love, but she really has no reason to love him back. They go from her being cold to him into her rolling in the hay with him.

TCW shows us Anakin's power, Obi-wan and his connection, his relationship with Padme and his bitterness, jealousy, anger, aggression, and commitment. I love the character development for many of the cast in TCW and I can endure cheesy plots to see them each grow.

My sister started with 1 without my knowledge or else IV would have been the first. She, not being a lore nut like the rest of us, really enjoyed TPM for the entertainment it was rather than the blatant screw up we all see it as. If you were going to show the series to someone to show the story of Anakin Ep 1 is a good place to start. The only TCW episode to cut would be the continuation of the SON plot beyond the time the daughter is killed.

I have a question about lore.

During the Clone Wars, were the only forces the Republic used Clones, or was there recruitment from Republic-controlled planets too?

It seems pretty troubling to me if all Republic systems simply bought clones to defend them, with the prevailing attitude that clones are expendable.

That, and you'd think that with that attitude, the Republic simply would have commisioned better droids to fight the CIS (the plot to eliminate the Jedi nonwithstanding).

>> No.33104157

Clones were supplemented by planetary/system militias
Think of the clones as the Marine corps, the rapid intervention mothertruckers, and everyone else is just whatever was to head
It also appears as if normal officers from the judicial forces got fast tracked to officer positions within the GAR
Also you have alot of other types of militias, like Rahm Kota's paranoid mothertruckers, the antarian rangers, etc

>> No.33104180

There was mention of non-Clone forces on the Republic side in some sources. Rahm Kota raised his own militia of regular folk because he didn't trust Clones, while Garven Dreis actually flew alongside Anakin Skywalker on at least one occasion. The Republic also made use of a lot of non-Clone officers like Tarkin. The Antarian Rangers and CorSec also collaborated with the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars.

>> No.33104203

The republic had volunteers who manned the capital ships.

In the pre-trilogy-published Timothy Zahn books, it was implied that both sides used clones to the point where the galaxy was so ravaged by war that it entered a technological dark age, which is why everyone kicks up a fuss about finding cloning tubes.
Then the pre-trilogy happened.

Is this the same /tg/ that masturbates all over Imperial Guard who are even greater number of even more ill equipped humans ready to die for religion?

To answer your question with another question.
Is it better to be born and raised for combat or not to be born at all?
Would it be better if Republic responded with their own droid army if it has been seen in the movies that droids have awareness, senses and feelings?
Why fight at all? If people are going to die in the war is it not better to just surrender to avoid all the casualties?

Your question is naive. Republic needed an army, she got the Grand Army of the Republic. And a little more for the bargain. If you want to blame the Jedi for something, blame them for sending too small arresting party to Chancellor's office.

I send my clone army, which I specifically created TEN YEARS AGO so they can fight my droid army WHICH I ALSO CREATED TEN YEARS AGO BECAUSE I AM A SITH LORD BENT ON RULING THE GALAXY.
Circular logic, false dichotomy, whatever the name of the rhetorical blunder you are using, the clones are a TRAP. They are there to be the Republic's cannon fodder so that the citizens of the Republic feel safe and acquiesce to Palpatine grabbing more and more power so that they can be safer. At the same time as he is securing his future Emperorship, he is drawing the Jedi away from the very immediate problem of a Sith Lord by placing a fallen Jedi at the lead of your specially selected group of puppets and imply that he is a Sith and even train him in a few techniques so that the Jedi he comes across will focus their efforts on eradicating the Sith they can SEE instead of looking for the one pulling the strings.
If the Republic had not used the clones provided and done nothing, then they'd have been steamrolled by the CIS which means Palpatine wins.
If the Republic had not used the clones provided and raised their own army, they'd have been steamrolled by the CIS which means Palpatine wins.
Since the Republic DID use the clones provided, they steamrolled the CIS which meant Palpatine won.
I said circular logic because you argued in favor of using the clone army. But why did the clone army exist? Because of the droid army. Why did the droid army exist? Because Palpatine told his puppets to prepare for war. Why did Palpatine tell his puppets to prepare for war? Because he was breeding a clone army.

>> No.33105996

You also seem to be very confused about the nature of the Republic. It's not some Tumblr SJW paradise, it's a racist, corrupt system that was too weak to defend itself when one man with a vision decided to prey upon it.
Look at the people Chancellors we see during the main timeline: Valorum: human, Palpatine: human. Even in the New Republic we have Mothma and Leia as our first two Presidents and Zahn, who has a history of thinking deeply about these implications, even has an 'alien' senator object very strongly to the label 'alien' and 'non-human' because it obviously comes from a very human-dominated and highly racist society.

I am not the one who said, and I quote, "transgendered otherkin Republic". The moment you mention that is the moment you open the door for a discussion on racism in the Republic.
And what use is a clone army to Plageious, exactly? Coming out of the shadows and taking over was Palpatine's plan, not his master's.
>GAR was comissioned by Sifo-Dyas
A character who has no impact in the movie he is introduced in other than to tell the audience that this person they do not know and do not care about was dead before the army was comissioned, thus raising Obi-Wan's suspicions and leading him to Geonosis to discover that the clone template is working for the CIS and also making me wish that the prequels had actually been in the form of a police procedural as Obi-Wan unravels the plot and finds out that the man behind the war is.... PALPATINE! dun dun duuuun
And sure, if you want to not have any casualties from your regular population, what better way than to fully commit to your disposable war by having disposable, indistinguishable clones? Can't have war without casualties, but that doesn't excuse the Republic for using and abusing the clones or the fact that they are guilty of, in the words of Star Trek "creating and perpetuating a slave race".

You are very right that the empire does not like to use CW era stuff, but just because you don't like to use them doesn't mean you won't. The empire is limited so much more by logistics, and the empire is if nothing else huuuge.

From the fource unleashed book, which is about the Post ep3 era up to the Corellian treaty:
"No clear distinction in military doctrine and equpiment exists between the grand army of the Republic and the military forces of the Empire. Unlike political reality, for which a vote or a signature on a law is all that's needed to go form one era to another, military reality is often dictated by avilable supply and missiom parameterss. Altough the empire knew what vehicles and stsrships it wanted its forces to use, and in what numbers, it was not always possible to manufacture, transport and maintain exactl the "desired" mix of armor or supply vehicles to active units. Further, the scale of the Galactic Empire meant that a "minor" number of outdated vehicles could well number in the thousands, not enough for the whole Empire, but more than enough for the troops on a given ship or planet. The remainder of this chapter, etc, describes a broad selection of items in common use by the Empire in the years between the end of the Clone Wars and the Battle of Yavin. In manay cases, such items are used side by side with items left over from earleir conflict and new designs not yet in general production. Altough the Empire wants to standardize everything, it 's many years before this effort begins to be realised on a wide scle. "

Then Kaiden gets his head twisted off by a bioroid. And magic starts getting involved. And Adam has a Prothean, sorry 'Promethean' database downloaded into his brain which means he's now some sort of reincarnation of 'Aleph, the First Promethean'. It also turns out that the Illuminati is behind the Skylian Blitz and is trying to use the Reaper threat to take control of the galaxy.

>"Explain yourself." asked the warped voice of hologram 01.

I was tentatively with this story even through the murder of established characters, the change of Liara to 'Manah', an Ardat-Yakshi who has been mindraped by Justicars because someone tried to be nice to her, and not-Liara's mom becoming some weird vessel for an evil spirit through the "Mask of the Black Queen".

With that said, I don't have any problems with the Devs and they're not lording over people smacking them around with Jedi glowsticks when the Jedi haven't been coded into the game yet.

>you're allowed more than 1 character per server
For testing purposes you're allowed 10. This way there isn't the pain of dropping skills to regrind something just to test it. Instead you can make a new character and test out Carbines rather than drop your armorsmith character if that's how you wish to play.

I normally stick to one of two characters. I've got a third that I will occasionally dual log with the twi'lek I posted since they have interlaced backstories... but that one is just a tailor so I can make my own clothing.

Which is still conservation of character and still works. The scene should have played out like this:
Kaminoan: "Are you here about your order?
Obi-Wan: "What order?"
Kaminoan: "Oh, the army that was commissioned ten years ago by Master Qui-Gon Jinn. It has taken quite a while to grow them all."
Obi-Wan: "Ten years ago... but that was..." *eyes widen* "When were arriving at Naboo."
BAM! Instant mystery setup.

Well, Bakura made due with only a single Carrack, a repair yard, one G-base and like, Six IPVs. They don't elaborate on how many fighters they had but it was maybe three times the 27 fighters aboard the Flurry.

(Even if you include the rebel taskforce that's 5 gunships, a CR90 and a Quasar Fire)

So I think this world is pretty well defended. A ground wing of 40 TIEs, 24 TIE fighters and 12 bombers on the space station. Two DP-20s, a Bulk Cruiser, a Carrack, six IPVs, four Guardians for antifighter, two Stormtrooper transports for heavy missile/torpedo bombardment and 7 forward lasers each. Probably a few spacemines. A Marauder, Twelve SKIPRAY-Class hellraisers and some junky old fighters.

Add the upgunned consulars with the five double-turbos and the fact that depending on orbital conditions they can microjump the customs craft in (Or use the station as a first line of defense) and they are doing pretty well.

But that has little to do with their purpose on the furthest edges of known space. There are.... things out in the void, nameless terrors that would break the minds of man or alien.

So since we're all sharing our experiences in EotE/AoR, I figured I'd add transcripts of my shabby attempts at GMing for my crew. Right now, we're starting with Beyond the Rim, and from there we'll billow out into the rest of the Star Wars universe. Our dramatis personae is as follows:

>Quoia Viridux, Duros Archaeologist
Got her Master's in Xenoarchaeology from the Central University of Corellia just recently. While she was in courses, she found a reference to an incomplete copy of the earliest versions of the Dha Werda Verda and became obsessed with finding a full historical record of its earliest version. She convinced her BFF and roomie at university, one twi'lek named Jhova Bres, to go 'convince' a local shipdealer to get a better price on a refurbished YV-560 with her exotic ways. Quoia sold Jhova on a grand adventure onboard the ship, christened the Halcyon Nomad, to recover the lost segments of the Dha Werda Verda. Instead, she left the poor twi'liek stranded on Corellia while she made her way into the galaxy.

>Arcostria Delevar, Selonian Assassin
Arcostria was taken from the Selonian underwarrens as a cub, and raised on Nar Shadda outside the usual confines and rigors of her native society. It's for this reason she lacks the usual devotion to family and warren of her species, not to mention a distinct familiarity with working under Hutt authority. She seeks to rise up the ladder of the underworld enforcer brigades, and was embedded onboard the Halcyon Nomad under orders from one Hukkara the Hutt. While she follows Quoia's orders, she secretly works to fufill Hukkara's demands.

Any ships able to join with us can plot their own course to Bakura and pray they are not too late to take a share of the glory.

>> No.33109631


>Bastard McIdon'thavehissheet, Human Outlaw Tech
Born in Taris' Lower City, Bastard got his start in criminal dealings by fixing and tuning up the swoop bikes of the megatropolis' numerous gangs. He found quite a bit of success and notoriety there, and found himself working with shadier and shadier folks. Each new business partner led to excitement and mayhem, two things the outlaw thrived on. Along with Arcostria, Bastard is working for Hukkarra the Hutt to recover the treasures of the Sa Nalaor for the alien gangster instead of Isotech. He's referred to as Bastard in these dialogues because he made his character digitally, and hasn't given me the digital sheet yet.

>Jakk Falso, Weequay Marauder
Piracy runs deep in the Falso clan's blood. Jakk's father, Ghed Falso, was one of the many blaggards under the command of Hondo Ohnaka during the Clone Wars. Young Jakk was raised on tales of Hondo's and Ghed's adventures in the Outer Rim, playing the Separatists and Republic against one another and ending up the richer for it (usually). These tales inspired Jakk so much that he attempted to take command of Ghed's own pirate gang for himself, without his father's approval. The ensuing firefight meant the end of Jakk's continued business with his father, and now he sells his services as hired muscle to Quoia.

>ZBMD-75, Droid Doctor
ZBMD-75 is a GH-7 Medical Analysis Unit built by Chiewab Amalgamated Pharmaceuticals Company during the Clone Wars. After the defeat of the Separatists, ZBMD-75 was decomissioned and sold to the private market. He bounced between buyers for a few decades, and even attempted to purchase his own personhood with some scraped-together credits and a less-than-legal loan. His attempt failed, leaving him in desperate need of cash. He's now Quioa's personal property, and serves in both a protocol capacity and first aid for the crew of the Halcyon Nomad.

>Grimno, Klatoonian Heavy
Like many of his species, Grimno was pressed into 'honored service' to the Hutts. His natural strength and exceptional speed made him a prime enforcer and kneecap-smasher for the Desilijic clan. His loyalty to the clan earned him a relatively long leash, giving him the space to pursue personal persuits instead of forced directly under the orders of a gangster. He serves as the gunner and wilderness expert for the Halcyon Nomad.

Our story begins in the offices of Isotech, onboard The Wheel space station. Isotech's CEO, Reom, was the rightful inheritor of a hyperspace message pod from the legendary lost Separatist treasure ship, the Sa Nalaor. Unfortunately, I flub things just a bit here, and Reom comes off as a bit of a dumbass. The party quickly dismisses him as a chump, and looks for the real person in charge. So in my mind, I just swap around Reom's stat block with his sister's, and say that his sister and their droid do all the number-crunchy and economic stuff, while Reom is the 'idea guy' and security detail.

He informs them that his droid, IT-3PO will accompany them on their mission, and pre-fronts them with 1k credits to get survival supplies. As they leave, they see a shift-looking Rodian skulk away, and Arcostria gets a snapshot of him with her electrobinoculars. ZBMD identifies the logo on his shoudler as belonging to the Yiyar clan, a rival in Isotech's salvage and technology supply business. Arcostria convinces ZBMD to procure her some thermal detonators (he fails spectacularly), then heads to the bounty house. There he chats up some folks, makes small-talk with a Trandoshan, and slips a tagger in his coat pocket. Why the Selonian's player thought this random Trando I pulled out of my ass was significant, I dunno.

>> No.33109687


Meanwhile, Jakk goes back to Reom and tries to strong-arm him into paying us for killing off Yiyar clan members. He offers payment for the two local leaders that have been giving him trouble, Yav Yiyar and Too-Low Talo. Bastard also hits up an infochant in a local tapcaf, gathering details on Reom's history, business practices, their relationship with the Yiyar clan, and nav data to Cholganna. Quoia procures re-breathers and some other survival gear, and returns to the ship. There she sees a repair droid skulking around the ship as well, and commands Grimmo to secure the droid. He captures it with ease, and finds a tracking device on its person - Bastard investigates it, and finds the Imperial Logo stamped on it. Turns out the Imps are hanging around the station, keeping tabs on those coming and going. With everyone got their necessities taken care of before takeoff, we call it a night.

Session two starts off with us missing Bastard and Jakk. Everyone's standing around with their thumb in their ear, and waiting for IT to show up. Reom calls down and says that he's on his way, but time passes and he no-shows. Quoia tells Arcostria to investigate, and as she walks out the hangar-bay door, the crew sees five Rodians throwing a protocol droid on the back of a grav-sled, waving blaster pistols before rushing off.

>> No.33109705


Arcostria and Grimmo give chase, swiftly killing the pilot after a few rounds. Grimmo takes a significant stunner bolt which pisses him off, causing him to go full-auto and shoot up the place - thankfully he missed any innocent bystanders, but he does ventilate some enemy mooks and blast a hole or two in nearby walls and neon lights in the shape of a naked twi'lek. In their haste, the pilot drives over an unsuspecting Sullustan, who rolls under the bumper and beneath the grav-sled as it keeps going. Quoia, always down for manipulating people, rushes herself and ZBMD over to the injured Sullustan, offering medical assistance and her account on a report to Mastercom, the head of security for the Wheel. It doesn't take a few rounds more for the rest of the pilots to get blown to bits (seriously, this crew has a lot of firepower even with two people missing) and IT-3PO is recovered. Wheel Security show up, investigate the whole thing, and tell Quoia that she and her crew are persons of interest in the investigation and not to leave the Wheel.

>> No.33109738


Following his own protocols, IT suggests haste in departing for Cholganna. Quoia files her account of the events on the Sullustan's behalf (given the sphincter-origin name of Ayra), then asks for help making a diversion so she can leave the station on 'business'. Arcostria tags along, and suggests Ayra start a fire or rig up some sort of explosion or crash a speeder bike, but Ayra's just a cook at a local restaurant, no skills in that sort of thing. She offers to distract Wheel Security with the details of her suit against the Yiyar clan for personal injury, and Quoia approves. Meanwhile, Arcostria buys a busted-up mouse droid from a local fence, takes it to Bastard for repairs, and slaps a frag grenade on it and points it at the Yiyar clan's hangar bay, attempting to time the grenade's explosion to their departure time. Unfortunately for the Selonian, she flubs her Skulduggery roll, and emergency alerts flash half an hour early. Quoia pulls the ship around halfway through the pre-flight warm-up, and as she leaves her docking bay, Wheel Spaceport Control contacts her and demands that she return to the station else they employ force. Session two ends with Z-95 Headhunters launching to pursue the Halcyon Nomad.

I think one thing I need to work on as a GM is making the place come to life. Work on better describing scenes, portraying individuals, helping the crew better understand what is going on. I noticed that was a little bit of an issue as we played, people getting confused about what was happening.

I cannot even begin to describe how gamebreakingly OP this would be in universe. It's so balls out crazy I have never heard anyone even talk about something similar throughout the EU, and FFG just drop it on a random adventure module. This is the kind of shit that changes the galaxy. Anyway, here's what the GM sent thanks to some successful in session hacking:

"What is Project: Shell-Cracker?"
As suspected by Alliance Intelligence, Project Shell-Cracker is a weapons initiative inadvertently inspired by the Rebellion's victory at Yavin. The succesful deployment of starfighters against larger, hardened targets caused munitions experts within the Imperial Navy to envision a similar effort by the Empire to destroy large-scale target, incuding both Alliance bases and their larger capital-scale vessels. The project combines several previously mothballed weapons projects into a single, unified effort: a ship that can circumvent ray and particle shielding to deliver a devastating payload of hull shattering bomb.

The theory behind the ship is that its complex shield structure contains a lattice-like web of ionic energy that serves to disrupt the energy signatures of other shields. Thus, while a fighter or bomber normally approaching a shielded target would impact upon its particle shielding, the Shell-cracker would penetrate this layer of defense and be able to deposi its payload upon the target. Alpha-stage testing has proven that this technology does work, although it needs a great deal of fine tuning, and the prototype has been delivered to the testing station at Hammer (base) to continue testing. It is currently fitted with the shielding technology, but none of the high yield bombs.

I want to call it the Kraken. Pronounced "Cracken".

If you're producing that kind of power for a shot then why not build your own star, hide it somewhere and build a center point like station around it.. Hell you're producing that much energy surely you can create matter too. Or just use all the planets you're fleet destroyed for natural resources.

>> No.33113709

To continue on this point... You don't need a 12 gigaton seismic charge. That's overkill. Micro particles carried by solar winds already reek havoc on our satellites and ships. Without atmosphere interfering a much larger charge carries enough force to get the job done.

>> No.33113720

see, the problem is that his numbers exist in a (magical?) realm all on their own. in-universe performance of spacecraft does not in any way reflect what he says, and so his numbers, canon or not, can be safely ignored

I remember once seeing the Star Trek opposite, a fanfiction site that claimed that all blasters and turbolasers were mostly lasers (and thus effortlessly shunted aside by a navigational deflector) with only a tiny-bit of damage-dealing plasma to actually affect the main shield. Thus a Super Star Destroyer's full barrage like needed to pound on a Trek ship uninterrupted for literally 10 minutes to do appreciable damage to the Trek's ship shields.

Meanwhile they took the "phased" part of "phaser" too seriously and claimed that phasers and photon torpedos just magically ignored all Star Wars shielding.

>> No.33113800

remember that star wars ships are exponentially tougher than modern satellites et al, even without shields, and that explosives (especially nukes) loose an enormous amount of power in space. but at any rate, I agree that 12 GT is silly (IMO we just should avoid attaching any power numbers to spaceship weapons)

Well..... well then.
I'll check it out. In return, have some crossovers that I like:
The Dragon King's Temple
Stargate/Avatar: TLA
This one is really REALLY cool. Highly recommended.

The Raggedy Edge
I've kind of cooled on this one, but it's an alternate take on the whole 'transported to another galaxy' bit from... was it season seven?

Special Delivery
Stargate/Dresden Files tv show
I don't get all the flak for the tv series, it was pretty good. I guess people just don't get that adaptions have to make choices to make the story work on a different medium. Short and sweet.

Crisis of Infinite Shinjis
Evangelion/Marvel/DC/Back to the Future/Transformers/40K/others
This one is a guilty pleasure, but it's just... wow. Fucking wow. I love it, but man I feel uncomfortable airing the fact that I do. It's also the sequel to Last Child of Krypton, where Shinji got spliced with Kryptonian DNA and fights Angels as Superman Angels are also the disaster to befall Krypton here, and Kal-El is the one who sent the rocket, this time full of a DNA strand that alters the first person to touch it ala Terry McGinnis' dad.
So yeah, there you have it; some of my favorite crossovers. I think that says a lot about me.

hyperlanes, son. there are established routes between sullest and coruscant, and there are a number of obstacles that must be navigated around between coruscant and tatooine. time taken is not just a function of distance but of many other factors as well (indeed, the tatooine>sullest> coruscant rout is probably longer but better established and more used)

I have completed three 'episodes' in my rewrite of 21 total, which isn't a straight rewrite because the guy I shoved in there isn't on SG-1 and thus isn't going to affect much when it comes to their day to day missions. Other times he does, like how I plan to have him end Hathor on her first appearance because he is a) established as wearing a pendant that protects against mental influence and b) is not going to let what is essentially a succubus escape and do god knows what.
I'll try to finish all the 'episodes' then go back and edit them at once to check for continuity and make foreshadowing better when it comes up. But that's after I finish editing part 1 and finish writing part 2 of HS:JK.

>> No.33116409

This is completely missing the point that if the sul>cor and tat>sul numbers are correct, the cor>tat numbers have a maximum limit of those other two combined since if the time took any longer the two-jump setup would become the stadnard route.

the two jump setup IS probably the standard route. the direct route would only be used if you didn't want to come out of hyperspace along the way for whatever reason. the times listed are direct transit, not standard route

So I ended up getting both the Core Rules and Beginners set (Came into a little extra money so I splurged) Would have just gotten the Dice instead but Amazon screwed something up and there were none in stock so at least I get the set that comes in the Beginners box. How is the premade adventure?

to be honest I don't think phasers are phased put of reality, and even many trek nerds got it wrong? I always thought it was two energy streamed slightly phased against each other, which gives a rhythmic 'thumping' with a frequency related to how out of phase the two energy sources are, and that distortion effect is what does the damage. Like a vibroblade is to a normal sword, a phaser is to a laser basically.

tl;dr most trekfags don't even know their own shit let alone star wars'

also if navigational deflectors could turn away lasers they'd ignore phot torp blasts since they're just gamma bombs. and so still just EM.

The Beginner Box adventure is a fantastic game to run for RPG newbies and folks unfamiliar with the system. It introduces mechanics gradually, helps acclimate peeps to the dice system, and the pregens are solid characters. Not to mention the Beginner Adventure really sets the tone of an AoR / EotE game. It's hard to go wrong with that sort of start.

>> No.33116832

Gents, other than the Temple on Coruscant, were there other training centers or Academies on other planets during the Clone Wars?

For the next adventure I have planned, I wanted to have a group of Younglings (12) with a Master/Apprentice combo go missing from their intended hyperspace route from Planet X (Whichever has a satellite academy) that was besieged by the CIS to Planet Y (Whichever they were headed to). The group would have been traveling incognito perhaps with only a few allies knowing about it.

The game will start out detective style figuring out where they left from, and what type of ship, then go from them finding the ship to a rescue operation.

Also how does this sound as a rough draft of an adventure?

Excellent! Thank you. We're a well seasoned group but this will be our first foray into this system. If the leveling and classes are similar to the other FFRPGs then that will help us out some as we've played the 40k Gambit.

>> No.33116953


It's a lot simpler than 40k's leveling system. You buy skills and talents based on your specialization, and can buy new specializations. If you're a Jedi, you can buy force powers, and if you have certain bottom-row talents, you can get a powerful Signature Ability.

Chu'unthor-class traveling craft. The Ilum crystal caves (Interdicted to hell and back) and a few small temples.

>> No.33117205

I have no idea what that means, but if you explain it I may be able to find something like that.

It takes into account the major hyperspace lanes. Straight shots don't exist and a jump from one to another may require several stops for alignment.

So it's not like dusting crops, it takes precise calculations unless you want to jump into a planets gravity well or end up in a rogue star.

Also, I recall either in xwa or some other sources an imperial officer stating that it would take two weeks to get back somewhere.

>> No.33117286

Might not be quiiite the appropriate term, but you see on the top-left how the perspective is centered on the middle-rear, so the bridge 'rapers down' and the engines 'taper up' as you move forward. What I'm calling here isometric (and again probably wrong) would have the engine exhaust ports just be circles, the back of the bridge just be square, it's as if you did a 1:1 translation of the rear of the ship onto a piece of paper.

Perspective's nice and all but to me it's always looked out of place when you're not drawing a picture but detailing like a schematic.

The points cost is higher, and his ability isn't really that impressive. It just lets him fly a little better, and practiced players don't need it. The fact that the Firespray can shoot backwards lets it do a lot of damage without needing the same sort of cunning flight that x-wings and TIEs require.
