Star wars: Civil War
Greetings everyone, I'm interested to start a SW game but is not so used to the rules of Edge of Empires/Force and Destiny and would love to have someone assist me running the game.

My plans so far is the game start some time after the end of the Clone Wars and the players have recently banded together to fight against the Empire, for various reasons. I have always liked the idea that the game will proceed like Xcom games, the players have their Hq (a larger spacecraft or base planetside) and have several possibilities on mission and alike but very limited time and have to pick their missions carefully.

Would anyone be interested?

I can manage the system mechanics for you but have no interest in, nor proficiency with, running story elements.

In reply to Hendell (msg # 2):

That sounds quite interesting offer, I might take you up on it :)

What kind of games would everyone like then? Any preference?

The original XCOM idea sounded good.  Guessing we are starting out while the rebellion is young.

Exactly, I would say a couple years after the Empire is formed (like 3-4 years) and that the players already know each other and have formed their rebellion already and later join the rest of the rebellion.

A thing I really think will shape the players is the HQ, if you for say a spacecraft as a mobile base it have several advantages but require constant searching for fuel while a hidden base limit their movements and alike.

How would you all like it?

Are we talking like a frigate or like a capital ship?

Not capital ship at the start of the game, so something like a frigate.

Maybe do a HQ settled on a planet.  I could see something where we were part of a resistance to the Separatist forces and then Order 66 happened.  So now we are essentially the survivors of the same troops we fought alongside.  Would definitely have that XCOM feel as we venture from hiding to liberate this world from the same people we handed it over to basically.  Not sure which line you would be looking to deal with here though.
