So, it's time for an update on the rag-tag bunch of misfits that crew the Halcyon Nomad. Previous adventures can be found here: http://pastebin.com/4V2WfN6m

Vancetso's player was with us this time, though we were still missing Jakk.

The session began with the Halcyon Nomad speeding away from the Wheel with IT-3PO on board, security fighters in hot pursuit. Vancetso noticed that the Z-95s are custom-models: the torpedo launchers were removed and replaced with ion cannons. The fighters approached in a reverse-V formation, two lead pilots on either side of a lagging one. ZBMD-73 passed out some combat stims to the group, though didn't always give correct dosages for varying races - it took two injections to get Quoia a boost to her Intellect. Grimno was in top form, always making his Gunnery checks and straight-up nailing the enemy fighters every round. Quoia passed the stick over to Arcostria for the duration of the fight, the Duros calculating the jump to hyperspace while the Selonian flew. Flight plans involved travelling through the lanes of traffic surrounding the Wheel (pro-tip: the rules for space difficult terrain are MEAN AS HELL) to evade pursuers. Within a few turns, the pursuing fighters were either vaped or returned to the station in flames with the Halcyon Nomad taking no hull damage and never dropping below half system strain. Free of external pressure, Quoia made the calculations for the jump to lightspeed.

Once in hyperspace, Quoia had a few long chats with IT-3PO, gathering intel on Isotech's operation and precisely what they need from them. Alongside this was talk amogst Vancetso and Arcostria, first plotting to make sure they get paydays from both Isotech and the Hutt Cartel, then letting Quoia in on their mission. She agrees to the idea of getting paid twice for their work.

When they revert back to realspace, they exit amidst the Chol Nebula, taking a few hits from meteoroids while the ship's sensors go haywire. A few Computers checks later and everything's working just fine, Quoia slowly and carefully maneuvering out of the clusters of rocks towards Cholganna. Sensor scans revealed a ship in orbit on the far side of the planet which is actually a false flag, but they don't know that, along with potential locations for the Sa Nalaor's final location.

They identified an escape pod from the lost ship down a ravine and above a murky pool. On the ground, the strange sounds and threatening predators of Cholganna's jungles struck fear into the entire crew, save Vancetso. Once they got to the wreckage, Vancetso managed to carefully make his way down into the crevice, ACP Array gun at the ready. Arcostria flubbed her roll and ends up splashing directly down into the water, waking up a colony of green bugs that soon assaults the human. The blasts from the Array gun made short work of the bugs, while Arcostria investigated the pod. Inside, they found a few logs from the last moments before planetfall, and got navigational details on the ship's last known location, giving them insight into where to look next. The session ended with them returning to the Halcyon Nomad and resuming the scans of the planet, looking for the ship proper.

>> No.33806107


There were a few hiccups with space combat on both my and the player's side, but overall everyone enjoyed the session. I felt real bad for Quoia's player - she can't make rolls to save her life, despite solid dice pools. Whether it was astronavigation, or piloting, she just couldn't get successes. My sound effects didn't wow as much as I thought they would, still need to work on those a tad. Looking forward, navigating the ship is going to be hard for them, given that only one or two PCs are athletic at all. Everyone enjoyed themselves, for the most part, but I don't feel like I amazed my crew as much as I was hoping.

What do you think of their misadventures so far, /swg/?

Eh, I disagree.

In Repcom at least up through True Colors they DO show that the different Jedi all have their moral qualms about how to best protect the interests of the clones but they feel trapped leading them because doing anything else gambles on the Senate deciding to continue the war WITHOUT Jedi there to protect what troopers they can.

Plus part of the entire point of the prequels era shit was the Jedi were unable to cope with the demands of war.

Doesn't excuse any of her bashing on Luke's order in the other books, but so far repcom is fine, because the "Mouthpiece" characters are usually at *LEAST* partly wrong because they don't see the big picture from the bottom up.

Alright the plan is to pad it out a little. The more cocky he gets he starts hearing snippets of the name. He asks someone who he is and he gets the speech given to Solo.
"Gallandro? Slick, you're talking about the guy who single-handedly hijacked the Quamar Messenger on her maiden run and took over that pirate's nest, Geedon V, all by himself. And he went to the gun against the Malorm family, drawing head bounty on all five of them. And no one has ever beaten the score he rolled up when he was flying a fighter with Marso's Demons. Besides which, he's the only man who ever forced the Assassins' Guild to default on a contract; he personally canceled half of their Elite Circle—one at a time—plus assorted journeymen and apprentices."

He grows into that, definitely, but as of the most recent stuff in RG, he, Fel, Phennir, and Fel's Wrath have only recently showed up for the fight. They haven't gotten to know anyone yet and aside from Syal, the rest of the Rogues are still new meat by comparison.

>> No.33813080

Yeah but not all experienced people thing the new meat is chumps, -especially- with squadrons and/or pilots you're talking about. You think they haven't heard the big names that come from The Other Side? In WWII jetjockeys would talk about and respect opposing aces every sortie. Sometimes they even crossed gunsights and sparks flew. A couple became friends after the war, despite having shot down each other's wingmen half a dozen times.

I think you might underestimate the soldierly comradery that overwrites "These are the enemy" as soon as they stop being the enemy. At one point they would have killed each other, but only because that's what they do, and the people they find themselves with that they would have killed before are THE ONLY PEOPLE IN THE GALAXY that would do the same, by the same methods.

>> No.33813311

There's no doubt that Stele respects the name and legacy of Rogue Squadron. He'd gladly take guys like Wedge, Tycho, Hobbie, and Wes out for drinks because they've earned his respect. The main issue is that, as said in the first chapter, the current Rogues are mostly fresh out of academy. They're unproven in his eyes because to Stele, the Rogues are supposed to consist of the elite of the elite, veterans who have already proven themselves in past actions. So yeah, a lot of his early vitriol comes from the fact that he doesn't believe Syal's pilots have earned the right to wear the patch yet. Also because I need him to provide a contrast to Phennir's sarcasm and Fel's civility.

You are correct, however, as later chapters and sim-duels will prove.

The big thing about melee in EotE is that there's no easy way for melee to close the gap, nor any disincentive to leaving Engaged once you get up to them.

My answer: get a jetpack and things with the Ensnare quality. See if your GM will allow you to spend 2 advantage in combat to inflict the Immobilized condition for a round or two as you sweep people to their feet.

I was playing a Trando marauder who's obligation was obsession. He refused to use ranged weapons of any type to impress the score keeper. Out GM through an inquisitor at us while we were raiding a half built star destroyer for stuff. He intended to have the inquisitor chase us off but once everyone ran past I ha my character activate a ray shield trapping him and the inquisitor alone because as I said to my GM, he would NEVER pass up an opportunity to fight some sort of force user oven their legendary melee skills. This character was built to be good at melee and that's pretty much it, so fighting the inquisitor he got some good hits in, but the name the crit. Kax the Trando lost his left arm, but got a retaliatory massive hit in the inquisitor. Then the dice gods cruelly felt him ANOTHER crit, which again landed on loss of limb, there goes the other Arm and most if my hp. Kax carried a vibroknife across a bandolier thing on his chest, so I told the GM he draws that with his teeth (RULES OF NATURE) and I attacked again. This time I was the one that crit, and to the attack again crit, both hits were big damage and along with the earlier hits brought the inquisitor down.

Luckily that mostly coincided with AoR release since Kax will be in a bacta tank for a long time.

In addition to what others have said, equipment and talents that stacks on soak and defense.

A (as in one) weapon system or the engines breaking for a turn or two (maybe based on when the engineer on the ship can fix it instead) is fine if you want to allow it. You could add some setback for things like that though where even being able to just notice something's going to fail would be difficult.

Permanently shutting down an entire system on a ship might be okay for something like a minion; really it's up to you based on the situation, like if they/a big campaign enemy is getting creamed and you want to let them continue fighting each other at a later point.

Right. Basically, Javik is explaining the history of his race to someone, and how his people's Empire encountered that of the Rakata. The part I want to do but am struggling with is were he talks about how; in their search for the reason for why the Rakata seemed to draw strength from barbarism and savagery, the Protheans discovered the Force and how both their races were open to it.

What I've got so far is this:
Eventually, of course, we encountered a race we could not just subsume. The Infinite Empire of the Rakata. A race of beings so savage and xenophobic that they could match us, strength for strength.
They gloried in destruction and barbarism, butchering other races and laying waste to their civilisations. We sought to learn why they did these things, and our greatest scientists discovered the force.”
He gave a faint smile.

I would change it to

Got a upcoming SWSE game and I need some help preping some potential characters. The DM is going to be rolling in secret for one character to be a Jedi the rest will not (potentially force sensitive later). It will be set during the Jedi Purges.

I have two character concepts I need help with. One for a non-Jedi and one Jedi.

The non-Jedi is a Ubese Bounty Hunter who has a turn of heart after killing a Padawan. She focuses on dual melee weapons (thinking vibroblades), fast hit and run tactics and armour (with modifications). I have a house rule being implemented where she embeds and leaves daggers in enemies to hurt them over time (if there is anything in the actual rules to replicate that it be amazing to hear). Out of character likely to take on either mechanic or scout/survivalist role.

The second is an alternative history to this, either a Balosar or Togruta Padawan who hid while her master killed but in the process died defeating the same Ubese bounty hunter. They take on the Ubese's armour for concealment. Would specialize in force cloak/stealth and dual lightsabers. Not sure what their out of character roll will be yet,

I'm fairly new to SWSE so any help making these characters. Especially starting them off be a big help.

I remember really enjoying that series when I read it as a kid, but a friend of mine reread them recently and said the writing is kind of bad. I don't remember enough of the style to say one way or another. Got an opinion on that?

>> No.33837027

I think part of the reason Traviss's Repcom books are better than her other crap is because they fit the era's tone a bit better, where most of the criticism of the Jedi comes from characters with old grudges and those who don't realize the war was entirely purpose-built by papa Palps to fuck over the Jedi's moral compass and leave them disoriented.

Also mostly by people who don't have the specter of the dark side trying to latch its claws into them for acting with passion and therefore can't understand why the Jedi put those restrictions in place. (Or Jusik who is just a decently well balanced guy who would have fit into Luke's order just fine since he got the spirit of the law on emotion down without needing too much dogmatic adherence to the letter.)

AND because she couldn't make the Mandos a goddamn superpower because the Future was already laid out by the OT and old EU stuff, whereas post NJO that wasn't a limit on her. (Also maybe there was a different editor managing the prequels era books than there was in charge of the LotF stuff?)

>> No.33837072

Also she's really bad at dark, so when she got around to the end of Order 66 and all through Impcom she just went full retard trying to be dark by killing people and breaking bonds.Possibly just to prove that she "Could' and wasn't "Too attached" or whatever she imagined would shut her critics up.

You're awesome... I was trying to explain the force IC and how the dark side works... couldn't word it right.

I love that interpretation and made my Clone Wars padawan have that as her final conclusion to the force after surviving TCW and living into the GCW and 1ABY.
Cunt killed Mara Jade. Zahn wrote 8 books with her in it. She wrote 1 and killed her.

>Mara Jade was chosen by IGN as the 19th top Star Wars character.[4] IGN's Jesse Schedeen also listed the character as the top 10th Star Wars hero, noting that she "entered the Expanded Universe early, and she's stuck around for so long because she's just a great character".[5] UGO Networks called the character the seventh top Star Wars Expanded Universe character, calling her complex.

>What happened was Karen Traviss pushed to kill Mara Jade and the rest of the team on LotF disagreed with her. She insisted on it. It was her idea. She never informed Timothy Zahn about this when he was working on a new Mara Jade novel however. It was clear that the rest of the LotF team did not agree with killing Mara Jade and not only did Karen come up with the idea, she insisted on it. The other authors also didn't want Mandalorians involved in LotF but Karen insisted on it.

Long live the Mouse for freeing us of this shit. Mara Jade lives in my heart even if she is never recanonned. She's a legend of the galaxy and her name is on the lips of smugglers and nerf herders everwhere. Traviss ran off butthurt because the new canon has Mando's infighting and going in a direction she didn't want. I am pleased.

Heh, I'm running that as well for my online group while one of our Regulars is out camping for three weeks. There's an ex-Imperial Hired Gun who bought a YT-2400 with the intent of going underground and smuggling with it after he found out his old boss was totally corrupt, and then realized he didn't know jack shit about actually operating his own ship beyond shooting the guns, so he hired a Rodian mechanic and a Corellian pilot. And then a Bothan bounty hunter showed up later on Cholganna when he was stranded there by his 'comrades'. So far they've forgotten all about the Sa Nalaor when one of them remembered that Cholganna is the home of the Nexu and those things are crazy valuable on the black market.

They already got into a dog fight with the Nightflyer and some of its friends (A Y-wing that disintegrated to a lucky hit, and a Z-95 that fired a concussion missile up their YT-2400's tailpipe and then later ate a tree), which resulted in them finding a nice flat place to set down to do repairs, which happened to be the far side of the lake the engine section is at. And the Bothan was hanging out near the escape pod and they just happened to find him when they picked it up and went "ohh right this is why we're going here in the first place."

Of course, the fact that they realized after they left the Wheel that none of them actually have the first idea how to go around hunting Nexu probably helped. Nor do they have the kind of equipment to keep one in salable condition after stunning it.

I'll be joining an Edge of the Empire game as a Klatoonian Heavy Hired Gun.

Starting off with boosting Agility to 4, Ranged (Heavy) to 2, Gunnery to 2, and Piloting (Space) to 2. Also purchasing the +2 Wounds, +1 Strain, Burly, and Barrage talents.

Buying the Heavy Blaster Rifle from the Hired Gun splat book (10 Damage, 3 Crit, Long Range, Cumbersome 3, Pierce 2).

Here's the kicker....I'm not only the only weapons guy...I'm also the only pilot.

We've got an Aqualish Slicer, a Wookie Doctor, and a Trandoshan Diplomat. None of them bosted stats or bought more than 1 rank in any skill....they all spent their experience in talents. None of them bought weapons either.

In a game where the GM specifically said we'd be facing some hefty combat against both pirates and Imperials.

All those guys still have at least a 3 in Brawn, so they can at least punch something or beat someone with a wrench. And the Doctor can at least bump up your Agility to 5 in combat and the diplomat can restore your Strain and give you Boost Dice in combat.

I do agree they're putting a lot on your shoulders. Encourage them to spread out a little bit and not just act like frail shmott guys. Not to mention that your ship could use a dedicated pilot so you can man the guns - consider acquiring an astromech at some point to serve as a copilot.

Both Call of Cthulu and Dark Heresy.

He is not afraid to take advantage of our party's weaknesses.

He rolls out in the open, never fudges dice, and never tones things down or ratchets things up difficulty wise.

But he will exploit our party's weaknesses and continue to do so until we learn to cover for those weaknesses.

CoC had no less than 10 full party wipes in a 1 year campaign. DH had 2 in a 1 year campaign.

>> No.33856227

Did they at least invest heavily into upgrading their base stats? Chargen in EotE heavily encourages squeezing as much XP as you can into increasing your dice pools. Skills and shit can come later.

Also, since your medic's a Wookiee, you can at least use your guns to suppress the enemy long enough for Doctor Furball to flank and practice Olympic Speed Vivisection. The Slicer can probably fuck with environmental controls, security systems, the party's IDs, and nearby turrets to ease things along.

>> No.33856247


Remind him (and don't forget yourself) that Star Wars is by definition, a NobleBright setting. Especially in EotE, where there's a definite mechanical bias towards success.

So.... your number one priority is survival. Let them realize just how bad not purchasing stats with starting xp is by way of death. If you can, suggest to them that more dice, even if green, is ALWAYS superior, and ALWAYS helpful where as those talents can be purchased after their first mission or two.

If the GM is new I'd also through out a suggestion of telling him to add 50xp to be used AFTER character generation so they can buy their special talents that they might want.

Really, you should take obligation to further boost a stat rather than get talents or skills... but that can be going a little too far into the optimization builds. If you blow 90 of 100 or 110 xp on stats and the rest on skills or base talents you'll be fine.

4 Int means you're not only knowledgeable about mechanics and astronavigation, but you know a thing or two about underworlds and the rims. Throwing 4 green is still better than throwing 2 yellow and the 25 xp invested into it when it's not a class skill and you're at 2 int.

I'd show the group the page where it says you cannot spend xp on stats after generation. Highlight it if you have to.

It was plenty clear to me. But when I realized we weren't going to have a pilot, I had to scramble to get points into Piloting (Space) so we don't get pasted trying to fly away.

I ended up spending...35 on skills and 25 on talents...And that was to specialize in flying and shooting. The extra I put into talents were to help me soak damage and strain and allow me to sling around my gun a bit better through burly.

I had planned on combat armor + mini-gun blaster....shred all who oppose me in a hail of blaster fire ala Terminator and shrug off shots like it's nothing.

Very well, they actually managed to successfully make a negotiation check (against captain Harsols 5 red) to trade medical supplies for some of the survivors research..

Well...one of my female PCs were given a personal shielding device. She received it as a gift from Cal, the ISP agent, who was working undercover as a member of The Wheel security. What the PC also didnt know was that the shielding device is also a long range tracking device, so she can lead the Empire right too the location of the survivors...if the PC's manage to find them.

Intense drama ensued when that ISP agent arrived with scout troopers and thanked the PC for assisting...needless to say Captain Harsol and the remaining survivors felt very betrayed...
