    Okay, so, I am trying to figure something out: when we buy stuff at the start of the game, like say a blaster pistol, what price am I paying? The base price, the black market price? I guess it kind of affects whether I'll take the Wealth or Connections talent to start.

    Vash Oen is pretty interesting just based on his race and class. Kel Dor are supposed to be so upright it always makes me happy to see one who has a bit of a lax moral code. Good work.

    I think Ghtroc 720 Freighter will serve just fine as a starter ship. A fine choice. Thanks for providing the stats by the way, sorry I don't have the book for it on hand.

    Question on equipment and rolling for money.

    Do I have to purchase my lightsaber? I would assume I already had it.

    I added a secondary blaster because the stealthy one turns out to have 1 charge. Still god for ambushes tho. And I switched my armor with a half jacket. And added some miscalenous items. Gonna go sleep.

    The campaign sounds super cool so far! I am submitting EI-0 (aka "Zero"), a disgruntled, ex-network security droid. I will need to look through my books once I get off of work to write up the specifics, but it's likely going to be either scout or scoundrel.

    Would the follower talents out of Clone Wars book be okay? I'm thinking it would be a nice touch to have a couple of "remotes" to fight for him, as accurately shooting with a blaster might be ... physically difficult given his design ;)

    Oren's backstory:
    Spoiler:

    Credits roll:

    Credit Roll (3d4=6x250 = 1500 credits)

    Equipment:

    1. Lightsaber - comes with character
    2. Comlink - 25 cr

    For RP purposes I'm going to say he lost most of the rest either through theft or was conned out of it. Let's say he was 200 credits left.

    Sorry I missed this submission earlier.

    I don't have the Clone Wars book so if you could give me an idea what the Follower Talents are that'd be handy. If it's in the book though I'm pretty much sure that I'll allow it in the game.

    Glad you're excited about the campaign, I did my best to get it off to a good start.

    Oh and Heir, Oren's backstory is really good! Just for my own notes what species was his master?

    Hmmm...I'll go with Duros. I made up Oren's master, and I think making him the same species as one of the other characters might be a fun idea. I'm sure Oren would find it shocking to meet another Duros who was a Scoundrel (and most likely very different than his master) . :)

    Basically, in the Clone wars Campaign Guide, Scouts, Soldiers, and Nobles gain a line of talents based around "followers." You can have 3 followers maximum, and you have to spend your actions to make them do just about anything other than move.

    ... now that I think about it, I'll just PM you the long version. It's actually a nice little system they set up, me thinks. ;)

    Wanted to ask a technical aspect of the force points. From what i have gathered there is no way to get more force points after you spend them until you gain a level. Is that a correct assumption of my part?

    the GM can give force points as rewards. or certain force techniques allow you to restore spent force points. other than that, i dont see any way to get them back.

    sak, can you give me some critique of my background? i was trying to go for something a little different from the normal submissions, and im not sure if i accomplished that or if it just came across as unfocused or unworkable or not serious.

    Sure psolms I can give you a critique of Tissen's background. You certainly managed to do something different than the normal submissions, and I mean that in a good way. I enjoy the fact Tissen is sort of trying to live out his fantasy life like his holovid heroes. To me Tissen feels like a real person, someone you could actually meet while zooming around the galaxy. Dreaming of adventure but it doesn't go quite the way he planned.

    also just throwing my two cents in the ring here, whenever the GM presents you with the option to roll your stats, especially via the 4d6 drop lowest method, you should do that! you will usually end up with a good, if not great array

    (4d6.takeHighest(3)=14, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=15, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=17, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=13, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=14, 4d6.takeHighest(3)=10)

    that's an example of an array i got on my first roll, which is a 40 point buy array

    yeah - as you will note, it's not full of 16s through 18s or anything, it just tends to produce arrays with more 12s-14s, which encourages characters to branch out a little bit, maybe consider taking up skills they hadn't thought about.

    it sort of encourages that Star Wars feel where we see Leia help fly or fix the Falcon, and participate in shooting Stormtroopers; i mean, she's not a soldier, but it's cool that she can do those things thanks to a good stat array
