I haven't heard anything like that happening at my FLGS, but from the folks I talk to there, most of the big X-Wing guys have standing orders of basically "Whenever something big and new comes in, set me aside one and I'll buy it."

Not because I don't like it, but because the ship was way too thin for 1982 tech.

I'm compiling ideas and notes for a campaign I'm thinking of running set in the early New Republic era. More specifically within the time frame that Thrawn was putting out calls to smugglers and shipjackers for capital ships for his fleets.

I was wondering what you guys thought about the FFG books, because the only Star Wars RPG book I've used and have experience with is d20.

>> No.34897940

>>34897783

FFG's system is my personal favorite game for running Star Wars. It does a great job of melding mechanical rules and narrative opportunities, and really captures the cinematic feeling of being in the Star Wars universe. It's hard to make a useless character, everyone gets nifty abilities, and Jedi don't automatically win at everything. A few things of that era may require some homebrew, but for the most part everything you'd need has official stats, and if it doesn't, shipfag can usually come up with ones as good as FFG's.

Anything in particular you're curious about?

>> No.34898029

>>34897783
I HIGHLY recommend EoTE/AoR for your game. if there is ANY ship, gear or vehicle that you need for your game, let me know and I'll stat it for you. also, there are a couple of /tg/ house rules that you might consider looking into; I can post some of the if you'd like. plus I have a whole list of adjustments to stats from the base rules, which I would *highly* recommend

>> No.34898160

>>34897783
Did you like D20?

FFG's take is very different from WotC. It's far more cinematic, narrative and quick. D20 is more tactical and rules driven.

Ironically, FFG's system handles asshats better. Where the culture around D20 seems to empower That Guy to do whatever the rules (arguably?) support, FFG just leaves it up to the GM to say, "Yeah, no."

On the flip side, if That Guy is the GM, he's going to be two shitstorms worse with the freedom of the narrative game.

Personal experience: D20 was a very fun Game... But FFG is a fun Star Wars experience.

Yep, for example. Running ME20 right now. My player had the drop on a Vorcha and wanted to murder them with a knife. But when you know your knife does 1d4-1+1d6 and the Vorcha has 20+ hp... you're not going to one shot that thing. However, in EotE you can get a ton of successes depending on your skills and make your 5 damage weapon into a 10 damage weapon, or roll a triumph and a few advantages and have things explode and be cinematic and awesome. So rather than widdling down hp with rolling to attack versus AC and then rolling for damage ad infinium, you can be more rule of cool

>> No.34898335

>>34898190
the first is a fix for glass capships, mostly. it's pretty simple; Increase the HT of all capital ships by a percentage equal to 10+(10Xshilouette). Increase the HT of all fighters, Transports and Patrol boats by a percentage equal to (8Xsilhouette) Increase the SST of fighters, Transports and Patrol Boats by a percentage equal to (5+(5Xsilhouette)). Increase the SST of Capital ships by a percentage equal to (8Xsilhouette). Increase the damage of all turbolasers and capital-scale Ion cannons by 1. overall, this makes capital ships 'fluff tough' especially Mr. Zann's fluff; the base game seems to be based on X-wing vidya toughness

>> No.34898428

>>34898372

I have to say, I don't agree with the chart in many ways. I don't see what's stopping you from running games up until the NJO era with current FFG offerings, except maybe rules for certain starfighters. You can even do Clone Wars stuff with F&D.

Considering the time the campaign would be set in I'm mostly interested in the handling and mechanics of both smaller ships (Like light freighters) and bigger ones like the Venator Star Destroyers and Recusant Destroyers.

Those particular classes of ships are of some interest. I assume the fighters and other small craft they typically carried have already been made.

>> No.34898526

>>34898428

That's why I'm working on editing it right now. About half a year ago, it was totally legit, but not so much now that we've got workable versions of all three games.

>> No.34898578

>>34898491

The only hinky stuff is the general fragility of ships, which Shipfag's ruleset will address. I think the Venator is in the hangar, and the Recusant probably wouldn't be hard to come up with. For a while, we won't have official stats, because it seems FFG is focusing solely on the time between Yavin and Endor across all three game lines. Maybe once we get career books and a few setting books in all lines in a few years, we'll get different era books.

Beyond that, I really like ship mechanics. Combined with the dynamic rules for initiative, running a small crewed ship like a light freighter gets really interesting.

>> No.34898590

Depends on what Disney decides about the license. Ideally, they'll let it keep running, or name a new price that FFG's perfectly willing to meet.

The thing is that the size of the universe in question is kind of GIGANTIC. There are four types of books for each game, so far, using Edge as an example: 1 core rulebook per game line, a line of adventure books (could theoretically go on forever), career books (LOOKS like there will only be one per career, but there's plenty of room for them to do multiple books for a given career), and sector books (do you have any idea how many goddamn sectors there are in the Star Wars galaxy I mean really).

There have been 3 career books for EotE in the space of a year, along with 2 adventure books and 1 sector book out with another on the way. AoR has one adventure book already out, plus one career book on the way. If we see books for different eras -- IF we see books for different eras -- it's going to be years from now.

Bring some ordinance and pour fire into the rear section of the transport. If you can damage the engines it will move slow enough that you can mop up the escorts with little trouble.

You might also want to avoid getting ships into range 1 when it has energy to spend. The transport has a few nasty tricks it can pull, despite it's lack of weapons.

Thanks - what do you consider ordinance? Bombers? I know that ships with a pilot skill of at least 4 can 'respawn'. The only win condition is taking out the transport. Is it worth trying to get the most out of the mines on the table?

Honestly, still feels like a clusterfuck. If I knew more about d6, I'd be able to recommend it easier, but I'd honestly just say "if you want a tactical d20 game, with everything that comes with it, go with SAGA/RCR. If you want something with a more open, modern design, go FFG."

>> No.34899562

Ordinance is any sort of missiles or bombs. So yeah, flying a bomber up and dropping some proton goodness to force a crit on the Transport is a good idea. Focusing on the Transport is good, and you can get a quite a bit out of the mines, but you will still need to take out the high-maneuverability rebel ships or they will just whittle down your fleet. Bombers are a good pick, Several TIEs (perhaps with named pilots?) and maybe something with a bit of extra punch, like Vader or a Firespray or a Defender.

As the chart's creator and someone who defaulted to D6 in the years between WotC's last Star Wars release and FFG's first, I stand by my current chart. D6's system is strong, and its wealth of sourcebooks is incredible. The only thing to recommend d20 is a desire to play d20 or a desire to use Saga Edition's specific sourcebooks (which FFG does not yet have).

Between D6 and d20, there's a clear difference, and not just in the system alone. D6 has a wealth of sourcebooks for pre-1999 EU, d20 has a wealth of sourcebooks for post-1999 EU. The chart reflects this; pre-1999 EU touched every era except NJO and Legacy, while post-1999 started and/or reshaped every era. West End Games died in 1998, and with it Star Wars D6. Star Wars d20 kicked off with OCR in 1999 and just kept going from there, with RCR in 2002 and Saga Edition (the best Star Wars d20) in 2007.

Of course, FFG's system is so much better and so easy to homebrew that if you're willing to do the homebrew work, it's the clear best option. But if you need sourcebooks for your chosen era and you aren't playing the Rebellion era, FFG just straight does NOT have them.

This, a million times this! You don't need fluff books detailing the stats of a blaster during Kotor or one for legacy. You have small medium and heavy blasters that can be renamed anything. You don't need books for armor. Anything too specialized like Baragwin in Kotor is going to need gm approval anyways. Just tell him what you are looking for and suggest stats and traits of it.

Ships are a little harder, but a freighter is always a freighter to a corvette which is still a corvette to a cruiser. Pick a freighter or frigate you think is comparable in stats and rename it. It's when you mix old republic with legacy that you might have problems with damage and tech scaling. But why are you using a 4000 year old ship?

I think this may be part of the reason I've never bothered with dnd and pathfinder. Everyone NEEDS rules for something and no one accepts just winging it for the story. Rules lawyers bust vessels in their eyes when they find an inconsistency with a rule rather than letting something slide for the sake of a game. Let Star Wars be about story telling in a fantasy noble bright space age. Get your scoundrel on and be morally obscure, or sling mad beats as a Quarren jizz wailer and dancer. But don't get bogged down in the rules about how you can't technically perform something that you forget to laugh at the fact you're a squid face playing a space flute on stage before a crowd that somehow like the same beat repeated adinfinium

"Why should you get any more creds? You don't need it, plus you have a ship! That's hardly fair since all we have are lightsabers!"

Negotiate an EXACTLY fair share as often as possible, so they have no grounds to complain, but use the ship to force a fair share as often as you can.

First, speak to an Imperial Kapitan next time you’re in port. Have a good story ready, claim a minor bounty or something. Mention this to the Imperial (it is your cover story). Mention to him these Jedi have kept you hostage through personal connections and you’re sick of it. Negotiate for the bounty plus extra since you can make it risk free, tell him what he’ll do: In Orbit, you’ll lock the ship up, take your sexy droid self and leap for the Imp cruiser. Which will then annihilate your ship. You’ll collect a big bounty for your Jedi, extra for the loss of your ship and some more for keeping these nasty Jedi off his cruiser as a just in case measure, in case they got loose or something and slaughtered their way off.

>> No.34902001

>>34901995
Now, he might betray you, so here’s what you do: Have a backup of yourself in a droid body on the ground. It activates after a set time if not cancelled. At that point, you take on the other part of your plan: There’s another player jedi on the planet that you left behind. You contact a rival of the Imperial Captain. Tell him how he destroyed your ship as soo as you tried to hand in some Jedi, and he’s clearly a sympathiser. Mention that you have the location of one Jedi, and will give that up, along with the evidence on his rival, and just want what was originally promised. Perfect.

And if he doesn’t betray you, sell the remaining Jedi anyway. That bounty is your cover story for the players, by the way.

TOR did do somethings right. The Hunter's light side ending was properly entertaining and the Agent and Smuggler were generally fun rides, but overall, BioWare really failed to live up to KOTOR's legacy.

Smuggler and Trooper are also pretty good story-wise, especially the Smuggler. Trooper is fairly cliche, but is more enjoyable if you remember that the Trooper VAs are Jennifer Hale and a guy who once played Captain America.

Quick question:

About how many ships per player in a typical game of X-Wing, and how many points is that? I hear of both "swarms" and just using a couple ships. Not sure what constitutes "a lot of ships" or a swarm anyway.

>> No.34911033

>>34910893

Unfortunately, the project has been put on hold for a while.

>>34910917

Generally, you start with a point total, and then pick ships from there. 100 points is the usual amount for tournaments, and usually you'll see 3 fighters kitted to the nines (XXY list, for instance), 4 fighters with a few upgrades (XXBB lists, for instance), a swarm of about seven to eight smaller ships (TIE Swarms or Z-95 swarms), or a big ship with one to two supporting craft (Lambda + Interceptor + Phantom), for instance.

Lower point totals will lead to less ships on the table, and more points will lead to more ships, up to and including Epic rules.

So guys halp.

I think this applies to all competitive board games but since it involes the X-Wing Miniatures game I will ask it here.

My close friends and I (three total) have been playing for a while and have been getting quite competitive about it even invoking tournament rules about accidental dial choices and making us do it even if it decides the match.

Recently we've been blessed with what I could call my towns' meta of about nine people. Now these guys just bought into the game and are still learning the basics like hitting obstacles and what exactly ion tokens do.

It's awesome that they're playing and investing and I only want to encourage them to play more but how do I play against them? I don't want to patronize them about basic rules and fly purposely bad. I've come to the decision to only try out vague ideas of new lists when I play against them. Talk about the choices they could make even if it would hurt me. Allow them to redo manoeuvres and actions.

How do you guys handle this kind of situation? I don't want to detour them whatsoever.

>> No.34920347

>>34920234

You're on the right track - you definitely want to approach them on their level. No sense whipping out your finely-tuned tournament list on some guy who just bought the core set unless you just want to stroke your ego. At that level, it is a bit more friendly and, dare I say, casual than balls-out-to-the-wall hardass dogfighting. Trying experimental lists or even unoptimized lists is a great way to just have fun - run those three TIE Advanced you've got running around.

If you want to challenge them, try setting up puzzles with a clear solution. Like Go problems - set up a somewhat controlled situation and let them try to solve it. Like Han in the Falcon versus two Bombers and an Interceptor.

Hey how about this:
Oh, the Y-Wing jocks say that their laser cannons are quite long,
They've got a pair of doubles, so how could they be wrong?
They'll tell you strength and stamina are all you'll ever need,
But all their girls just fall asleep for what the Y-Wing lacks is speed.

The X-Wing boys have quads upon their fine craft, they say,
It's built for versatility and turns without delay,
They'll tell you that the middle road is better by a mile,
But X-Wing girls get mighty bored for what the X-Wing lacks is style

The B-Wing bomber's are where it's at, that's what their pilots say,
With six big guns and missile pods and armor all the day,
They tell you that protection is where it ought to be,
But girls don't go for B-Wing jocks because it lacks agility.

The A-Wing now, that's where it's at, the young girls they all say,
It comes in fast as lightning and never overstays,
Agility and style it's got these by the ton,
And three-sixty turning cannons are more than twice the fun!

I hate editing so much. SO much.Chapter one of Han Solo: Jedi Knight is still in editing hell, and I have yet to write up a Battle of Hoth with more losing than the movie. The rest of it moves on, though. part two has three more segments to it, all fairly short bits before the jump to Dagobah.

As for the muse, maybe try stealing ideas from shit that has some relation to what you're writing. Han's trickery, possible fighting style, and snark might mesh well with Metal Gear CQC and Cowboy Bebop's fights. Hell, most of my inspiration for Syal's characterization comes from pic related.

Cross-posting to here, I'm looking to start a Star Wars game some time but want to learn more about what alien races are important to the setting.

>>34924303

Just curious if I want to accurately represent the Old Republic which Star Wars races are staples, influential, etc. If this was Mass Effect it'd be easy to place which of the Citadel races have what roles, but Star Wars is swimming in aliens and it's hard to tell which ones matter.

>> No.34924465

>>34924456
Aaaaand cross-posting reply.

It seems like the most common aliens are either near-humans or humanoids, since humans are by far the most common and influential species. The Republic is such a melting pot and it's been around for so long that most alien worlds and cultures have just sort of blended in and melded into the fabric of the galaxy.

There are a few very common races. Twi'leks are a common underclass or even slave class, but are prolific enough that there are also Twi'lek leaders and businesspeople. Other lower-class races include the Nikto and Weeqay, mostly laborers. Mon Calamari are fairly influential. Togruta, Cerean and Chagrian are common "middle class" races of the Republic. Ithorians are foremost biologists and environmentalists. Bothans are legendary info-brokers. Iridonians/Zabrack are militant colonizers. Duros are explorers while the Neimoidian cousins are bankers, and Sullustans are humorless hard-workers.

Some races are more well-known for being part of the galaxy's violent fringe and underworld. Musclar Gamorreans, sneaky Kubaz, mercenary Rodians, brutal Rattaki slaving Trandoshans and of course the legendary gang-leading Hutts.

Some races are notoriously isolationist, although this usually helps them endure. The Chiss live deep in the Unknown Regions and frequently disappear from the galactic scene. The Gree are incredibly advanced but only rarely choose to interact with the galaxy. Gand have a lot in common with hive races and stay apart. Wookies rarely leave Kashyyyk of their own free will, and Jawas, Sand People, Gungans and Ewoks are almost unheard of off their homeworlds.

>> No.34925762

Seems alright to me. Certainly no worse than my weaker chapters. The only thing that really nags at me is an early typo ("Skyw ` alker").

About half of the reviews for it are about how rushed it feels or how there's no funeral for Luke or this or that and why isn't this detail here and why couldn't you write something about the battle of Hoth.
I do agree with the criticism, I really could have spent more time on it and I'm doing that now. Hopefully I can get both the edit and the new chapter finished by the end of the month so I can move onto Dagobah hijinks and the want of a nail scenario playing out around everyone.

>> No.34928608

>>34928566
Well, at least you're still working on it, and I wouldn't expect there to be a funeral for Luke when the gang needs to batten down the hatches to fight the Empire. I don't really see how Hoth would change much aside from maybe one less dead AT-AT, though, and even then, the Rogues had plenty of manpower to spare.

Honestly, I understand the rush because of the need to get to Dagobah. Hoth is just a sideshow when the focus is Han's journey to becoming captain of the ruse cruise.

Babby Intrested in getting the X-wing starter. Beside the starter What else should i get? I know people say two starters but i don't want to neccesarily get two starters since I'm gonna be the one introducing X-wing around here. Also is the HWK-290 worth buying?

>> No.34929032

>>34928917

The HWK is a support ship - he fits into certain lists, but isn't as versatile as others. Two starters is recommended so you have spare dice, measuring implements, dials, and upgrade cards.

Another X-Wing pack and TIE Pack would serve you well. Other things to pick up are a B-Wing, an Interceptor, a YT-1300, a Firespray, Rebel Aces, and Imperial Aces.

>> No.34929245

>>34928917
If you're introducing the game to people, getting two starter sets is ideal. You'll want the extra dice, movement templates, and ships in order to make sure everyone has enough to play.

After that, go with what >>34929032 says. The X-wing and TIE expansions are a good call, just for the pilots and the fact that you can never have too many of the galaxy's most iconic ships. You might also consider Imperial Aces and/or Rebel Aces if you want to get some more advanced ships on the board quickly. And of course, the Firespray and YT-1300 are instantly recognizable and fun to play.

Nobody knew the Empire was coming at that point, though. It wasn't until some time later with the discovery of the probe droid that defense became imperative.
Han wanting to run away from Hoth instead of assisting in the fighting retreat will play into his time on Dagobah. What's in the cave? Only what you take with you.
I don't usually write long though, so I guess I was hoping to just gloss over details that weren't important to the overall story and then got called out on it.

So, thinking of the following for an A-Wing list for when I get Rebel Aces.

Tycho + PTL + VI + Test Pilot + Stealth Device + Proton Rockets (36 points)

Jake The Snake + Outmaneuver + VI + Test Pilot + Stealth Device + Proton Rockets (34 Points)

Arvel Crynyd + VI + Test Pilot + Stealth Device + Proton Rockets (30 points)

That way I have PS 10, 9, 8 respectively.

Tycho PTLs and doesn't care about the stress.

Jake uses his maneuverability to get into place for Outmaneuver

Arvel doesn't care about being blocked.

Stealth Devices give them 4 agility each until hit (and a hit A-Wing is a dead A-Wing)

Proton Rockets give a massive one-time punch that are guaranteed to hit unless the dice gods just hate you.
