Hey folks.  Let's chat about chargen and backstory.  I think collaboratively generating characters is helpful for the story.

From a chargen standpoint, you're welcome to use any official races/careers.  Everyone will have Duty regardless of whether the career is from Edge or Age or Force.  After generating your character as the book dictates, spend an additional 75 XP.

As for a primer for backstories, remember, this game start immediately after the end of Revenge of the Sith.  You should all sympathize with the rebellion so let's not have any Imperial sleepers or sell-outs or anything like that.

So, to start the discussion, what careers is everyone considering?

Warrior with Steel Hand Adept. Unarmed is very underrepresented with the only glimpses of it here and there, Rogue One being a prime example having a little bit in there.

I am thinking about Sharpshooter or Pilot.  Are we going to be bound to one planet or bouncing around?
There are no restrictions about being Force Sensitive or a Jedi?

My personal preference about Jedi/Force Sensitive is to limit it to Force Sensitive from Age and Edge.  Full Jedi can get... a might overpowered once they get some exp under them.  And they tend to drag "Jedi nonsense" into the game.  ;)


I'm leaning into Agitator, Race unknown right now.

It's not a disagreement, it's a preference.  If you have people who want to play Jedi, that's fine.

My 'issue' with Jedi is they tend to be good at more than just 'their niche' ("Overpowered" was inarticulate, I meant they tend to niche stomp on other people).  By the way Jedi Professions, lightsaber Styles, and Force Powers work, they tend to diversify a lot more broadly than other Professions (non-Combat role, combat role, and whatever extra 'cheesy' goodness the Force brings).

Also, the "Jedi Nonsense".  Because there is a Jedi, the GM has a tendency to want to throw 'jedi' flavored challenges into the mix...

It was a stated preference.  If the group as a whole prefers to have Jedi running about I'm fine with it.  Ironically, despite my first stated quibble, FFG is one of the better systems for having a mixed party of Jedi and non-Jedi.

I did ask ahead of time to play a Jedi in hiding type of character.  I'm totally ok with having less Jedi-flavored stuff thrown at us in general as I'm intending to delve more into skills and hiding who the character actually is as much as possible.  The intention is to go with a multiple-specialization type of build to facilitate that.

Starting Duty is 15.  I need to get a character sheet to you and some other basics.  Does everyone have experience with the system and can generate a character on their own?

Character sheets are up and editable.  For clarification, that Duty score is per player.  Not for the entire group. :)  Hoth: responding to you now.

Hey sorry for the late reply on this.  Missed the message.  You'll likely move around a little but not a lot.  At least not early on.  Late you may end up planet hopping a bunch.

No restrictions on careers.

Re: OOC

If you're making a character from F&D your Morality is 50 just like a typical starting character.  You, of course, select one of the four options in the book which may modify your Morality.

All characters will have Duty of 15 and may spend it according to the rules in the AoR book.

Jedi characters may begin with a lightsaber.  Don't try to sell it.  Oddly, it will only fetch 150 credits no matter how hard you try.  You must be on a run of bad luck finding buyers.

Edit:  Backgrounds!  You should all know each other and have a reason to be on Corellia together as Papa Palpatine issues Order 66.

Re: OOC

Hey all.  You'll have a HWK-1000 as your ship to start out.  Please use our bio lines to enter wounds, strain and melee and ranged defense.

W: x/y, S: x/y
MDef: x, RDef: y

I'll update my bio with the Force pool when necessary.

I'm using a Miraluka.  Playing it off as a "blind human" since she's in hiding and the race isn't super common at this point, I believe.

Re: OOC

After some additional consideration, I'm granting everyone an additional 2,500 credits.  Since you've been around a little bit I figure you should have saved up a few credits.  If you dropped your Duty score to pick up extra credits already you're welcome to just "trade" these to get the XP back but that's up to you.  +5xp = -1k credits, +10xp = -2500 credits.

It looks like one or two more characters need to be updated.  Is there anything I can help with there?  Once all sheets are done I'll get the first in-game post up shortly afterwards.
