Re: breaking the silence
Thanks. My car got t-boned, so I was dealing with that crap for the last few days. It was less than entertaining.

Glad you are alive, then. Hope you didn't get seriously injured.

Re: breaking the silence
I've recently started a HEROIC WEG SWD6 game, where you get 35D+ for starting Attributes and Skills.

I currently have 7 solid players, have lost as many others through careful selection, bad attitudes and attrition.
I want 1 or 2 reliable, high quality gamers, who know how to Role Play, and understand WEG D6.
I will be selective in my choice, so make a well researched, thoughtful and attractive pitch.

The setting Twilight of the Republic (pre Episode 1), NON CANON.
Any backgotund will be considered on its won merit.
Force Users are welcome.  NPC's can also be chosen by players.

Check it out here - link to another game

Re: breaking the silence
Also, double post, but yeah, I'm fine. Just dealing with insurance companies and the totaled car and figuring out a new mode of transportation and all that Jazz. Spent my free time vegging out instead of doing fun stuff that requires I think a little bit. :P

Re: breaking the silence
Not Star Wars, but here is some of the concept art for the "Imperial Courier" (Exterior, and Cockpit) From Elite Dangerous.

The second most expensive "Small" Ship in the game (as well as quite fragile once the shields go down), but wildly popular because of it's looks and reputation.

https://cdn0.artstation.com/p/...urier.jpg?1457388477

https://cdn0.artstation.com/p/...board.jpg?1457388220

For comparison, Here is the "Vulture", the currently most expensive "Small" ship.  Where the design philosophy was "What is the smallest ship we can cram a pair of Large weapons on?". (Second pilot seat currently useless)

https://cdn2.artstation.com/p/...lture.jpg?1457389993

https://cdn3.artstation.com/p/...ckpit.jpg?1457388585

Wildly popular for how practical among the "Average player". For it's PvE combat capabilities, not needing any Naval ranks to unlock, and fully upgraded costing less than a Federal Assault Ship or Imperial Clipper (which need naval ranks) off the shelf.

The only reasons people who haven't moved on to more expensive ships for combat don't like it is summed up as "Ugh it's ugly and for casuals", as well as not being suited to equip with PvP meta builds.

Art in general done by "Ben Andrews"

For some Star Wars related trivia.  The Cobra MK III (The widest "Small" ship and long running series signature ship) roughly the size of the Millennium Falcon.  As wide as the Falcon is long, as long as the falcon is wide.

A large part of this is that the design philosophy in Elite is "2% of the ship is cockpit, and walkway leading to said cockpit".  While the rest is crammed full of systems, and mass produced plug and play automated parts.  Elite ships are for working, not living.

Re: breaking the silence
Nothin much. Just every few years I find myself reading over these game threads and enjoying myself. To bad the ones for ďSecond ChanceĒ and..... I canít remember what the other one I was in was called.... arenít accessible still. Wouldnít mind reading over those again.

But yeah, mostly just playing in other games. You?

Re: breaking the silence
Hi Guys!

In a moment of weakness a few years ago I deleted all my old games, including a Second Chance.

Re: breaking the silence
Hmmmm, do you mean like game systems and their worlds, or specific campaigns in star wars D6?


If you mean game systems and their worlds then:

probably shadow run. It hits all my worst cynicisms about the future while also lightening it up with magic, future tech, and fantasy species. I really want to try the new ďShadowrun: AnarchyĒ rules version, but Iím currently running a D&D 5E campaign for a bunch of rookie rpgers, so most of my free time goes to that. :P

Deadlands is super interesting and I love westerns, but the one time I actually ran it it seemed like the rules were pretty poorly balanced.

If you mean specific campaigns in D6, then Iím not sure. I havnít ever run d6 except that brief period where I tried to help run a game and couldnít seem to get anything going with the players. :P so since Iíve never run one Iíve never looked through any published campaign books they might have. Lol

What he said.  But I'm kinda burned out on chargen as well... For Pathfinder and other such ultra-involved systems.  Gotta love how easy chargen is for d6.

Re: breaking the silence
My favourite SWD6 game is the Far Orbit Project!

Tried it once with my home group on tabletop, and once on RPoL.
