    this week is Star Wars week; I'll take a final look through as I can and plan to start us off on saturday

  • DaMoonRulzDaMoonRulz Mare ImbriumRegistered User regular
    Make sure we did our math correctly. Any spectators more familiar with the system can do the same.

    Going through Star Wars Clone Wars to get my head in the atmosphere of the Clone Wars

    These Jar Jar episodes are the bane of my existence.

    I haven't watched all of that show, probably not even most of it. Is there any reading that would help me get a frame of reference on where the galaxy is at other than the rule book?

    Seasons 4-6 are really where the show excels

    @ArcanisTheImpotent So Corellian Jedi tend to be a bit more insular; would Dermond and Dade be outcasts at home for going off to fight with the Jedi High Council instead of staying home?

    that is up to you--Jedi are Jedi first and having attachments can (according to the order) open one up to the dark side

    if you want family interaction to be a thing then it can be a thing for sure! As a GM I play according to what is most dramatically enjoyable and satisfying for the players

    also quick update tomorrow is my force awakens screening, followed by my real life game, and then a friend's birthday party on Saturday, so things might be delayed a little further beyond

  • DaMoonRulzDaMoonRulz Mare ImbriumRegistered User regular
    I'll let @Fuselage chime in with his thoughts too, but I'm thinking we're part of a family line of Corellian Jedi, trained from within the family, and that's part of the unusual reason why brothers are partnered up.

    ah yes, I did forget about that

    we may be looking at a post-holiday start then, though I may be able to squeeze in some time on Friday before or after my game session

    also, as far as the state of the galaxy, you're basically looking at the same old same old galaxy as it always has been with all its dangers - it is a big place after all - and layered on top of that the conflict of the Clone Wars, which is like WWI writ large. the fleets are battling, worlds with rich resources are contested, and it touches a lot of places. the only place you can really go and not see its effects are Hutt Space, the Corporate Sector, and beyond the Outer Rim into the unknown regions.

    as it stands, very few combat capable Jedi are spared from serving in the war in some capacity, and as a result the Jedi who get elevated to apprentice and Knight status are a little more maverick and odd, because the Jedi have to replace the numbers they lose in combat.

    the dark side shrouds everything as yoda is fond of saying, and there are more Dark Jedi emerging, some trained by Dooku himself, some not. all in all, it's a dangerous time that is filled with adventure

    as far as the sort of thing I have planned for this game, I like telling personal stories the most, but my goal is to try and throw in bits of everything

    grand battles (space and ground), cinematic lightsaber duels, investigations, diplomatic negotiations, infiltration, and even a dash of romance if you're willing

    That explains the other use of Sense.

    "The user may spend w/b to sense the current emotional state of one living target with whom he is engaged"

    Do you spend xp as you earn it, or are there GM designated level up spots?

    xp is awarded and spent at end of session, which basically means you will get to spend xp whenever I hand it out

    just now got a chance to sit down, your google docs are XMLs - i want to be able to link to them in one of the OPs so having them in a readable format on gdoc would be better so I don't have to load them up in the generator every time for a reference

    well, I typed mine up in gdocs manually, but you could use a linkable sheet like myth-weavers if you don't want to do that

    i prefer gdocs for the ease of editing and formatting

    I've used myth-weavers before, it's good stuff.

    Tonally, are we going more serious or are we free to goof?

    Also, dunno if I said it here, but the Second Invasion of Geonosis is intense as fuck

    oh, of course--humor is always fine

    without going into a whole tangent, basically as long as it's in keeping with the tone and used strategically, isn't snarky and cynical, it's all good in the hood

  • ArcanisTheImpotentArcanisTheImpotent Registered User regular
    also your characters look solid, though a few things to point out--you won't have duty or obligation (those are age of rebellion/edge of the empire mechanics respectively) and your morality should be somewhere in the range of 40-60

    I noticed Dade has 30 morality which is way too low and running right up against the edge of being a dark sider

    lastly, some background:

    The Clone Wars are moving through the galaxy and the lines have been drawn. You haven't seen battle yet, but you both can feel in the Force that this rapidly expanding conflict is going to suck you in. The Dark Side shrouds everything and though you can't discern any details you know it will be sooner rather than later.

    A few questions--

    Dermond, you attained the rank of Jedi Knight five months ago under the tutelage of Master Adi Gallia. What did your Jedi Trial consist of? In brief, what is your relationship with Master Gallia?

    Dade, it's no secret that the Jedi Order is wary of attachments as they can act as doorways to the Dark Side. What did you do that convinced the Jedi Council to grant your apprenticeship to your older brother? How do you reassure them that they made the right decision?
