Hey everyone,

I am W1-qit, your local droid modder. I'll be specialising in mechanics and computers, and minors in piloting and gunnery to assist where possible.

I'm still searching for a victim friend to get me off my abandoned space station and into the salvage company. If anyone feels inclined to help me with that story, please send me a PM.

Greetings all! I'm there in case things get dicey and someone needs to do some blasting, but I can also fly the ship alright if need be.

Hiya. I look forward to profit in scavenging with all of you. :)

Also, if no one's planning on specializing in flying us around, I was thinking of picking up the pilot smuggler specialization at creation

Welcome Zados and Nir.

Zados: I have the skill, but I am definitely not specced for it, so be my guest.

From what I gather, we now have a rather well rounded group with 2 mechanics, Nir has medicine, Zados being the charmer and the pilot, Dargo with survival, deception and lore, and my self also going for gunnery and computers. Does that sound about right?

Those will likely be Dargo's focus.

There's also a more face-oriented character and potentially a heavy lifter building characters now. I like to get 6-7 to start in case of attrition, and I can adjust encounters as needed if everyone sticks with it :)

Actually looking at in now, the only way to pick up the pilot specialization at creation would be to start with my brawn at 1 which isn't an idea that I'm wild about. I still have 2 ranks pilot (space), as long as someone can handle Astrogation we should be all set to fly around

Both Nir and I have Astrogation as career skills, and I have 1 rank at it and am planning to continue upgrading it at a reasonable pace. So I'll never be good at it, but not terrible either.

edit: fixed Nir's name, apologies :)

Quite, it's Nir. ;)

I won't be doing anything with Astrogation. I was hoping to fit in Big Game Hunter as a second specialisation, but it can wait.

I'm also good at short range combat (stuck with holdout blasters for the moment it looks like). Hopefully we shouldn't need to shoot *too* much stuff though

Heavy lifter. They were building characters when I last saw. The ideas were separate, sorry they ran together in the sentence.

Re: General chatter
I'm a Cerean modder. What, may I ask, do you specialize in W1-qit? I'd like to avoid as much overlap as possible in order for us to maintain some uniqueness.

Totally not a problem - I think I was halfway there, even. Just can't imagine what goes into heavy lifting besides brawn and backpacks.

Do we have any Outlaw Techs?

Is there any chance of us starting with a second hand / otherwise run-down Alidade Class Long-Range Survey Ship? (Savage Spirits 58) It's not the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, but it'll fit everyone as crew (pilot, copilot, 2 engineers, 4 sensor operators) with room for passengers, reasonable cargo space, consumables for years, and extreme sensor range. Just a thought.

Otherwise voting Wayfarer #1, YT-1300 #2, then Firespray #3.

Re: General chatter
I support the request for the Survey Ship. On that note, is anyone else taking signature vehicle and planning to use it for the group vehicle?

Re: General chatter
I'll check out the stats for the survey ship when I'm back on my computer (on mobile now) but until then my choices are also Wayfarer #1, YT-1300 #2, Firespray #3

Re: General chatter
Stats are pretty decent. Silhouette 5, and a little pricey when compared to the other options for starting ships, so I don't expect a yes to the request, but it would be nice.

Re: General chatter
I myself am rather taken with the Loronar Scout Vessel (Enter the Unknown 61), that said, the Survey ship or the Wayfarer are also fine.

@Gan'ah: In that case I am actually thinking of going Mechanic, but it does mean that I won't have gunnery.

Re: General chatter
I saw that too (also the YV-560 a few pages after), but I didn't want to offer a wall of alternatives I'd be interested in for reasons.

Re: General chatter
For the start, it'll be the choice of the three from EotE. The ship will be a company ship that y'all are in full control of, so long as you're in good standing with NRWS.

With that said, if there is a ship out there you all like and agree on, I'm happy to facilitate the upgrade. It won't be a matter of 'save every single credit', but probably a mix of some cash for the frame from the NRWS salvage lot, some salvaging useable components to fill it out, and then some elbow grease to bring it all together and get it in working condition.

Edit to include from PM

I'll say pre-start, when crafting items/ attachments/ mods, if the difficulty is 2 or less you succeed at the roll. I will give you a few tools on the ship for y'all to use, and I imagine you'll add to those as time goes on, to facilitate the unique crafting rules.

Re: General chatter
Double posting, no matter how gauche that may be :D

We are now up to 8 players with character seeds. I am going to close recruiting here; any other interested parties can apply for a waiting list to be backfilled as needed.

I see this going one of two ways - either a) we have a couple folks fade away (not a judgement, just an observation of RPOL games) or b) we split into two away teams when exploring locations. Each split should have 3-5 players and should still be able to handle a variety of challenges.

Let's shoot to have characters done by EOD Monday. If they're done by tomorrow we can jump into the beginnings of adventure, if not it can hold for Monday.

Looking forward to it!

Re: General chatter
Hello all! I'm Kesto! Your friendly neighbourhood slicer. Specialized in computers and astrogations but have some stealth and mechanics. Being, duros, I can also capably pilot a ship though i probably won't specialize in it.



I'd like to share a website with you since we are considering ships.

http://swrpg.viluppo.net/transportation/starships/

It's great for finding weapons, vehicles and equipment. It just tells you the basic stats on what's available in the system and where to find them.

Anywho, I'm all for the wayfarer but perhaps you would consider the YKL37R Nova Courier. Fly causal p56.

Re: General chatter
Well, like I said, I'd be fine with the wayfarer or any of the nonstandard models if the GM decides to allow them. Also, do we want to get how the group as a whole feels towards the Empire and the Rebellion now, or at least decide how we usually interact with Imperial authorities if/when we run into them?
