Star Wars: Dawn of Defiance [Interest]

Postby zeone3000 » Sat Nov 09, 2013 4:08 pm

I remember, a few months ago, someone suggesting taking the adventure path and turning into a M&M game. It sounded like a good idea then and it still does.

I can do either edition, I'm just trying to nail down a starting PL, damage rank of certain weapons and PL of certain enemies. Other then that, pretty easy.

Let me make this not look like a game in progress by changing that IC to interest...

Interest.
Also, for damage ranks of specific weapons, I'd suggest just allowing people to design them as whatever devices they want, unless you want them to be common equipment.

Would a force user with no affiliation be possible? If not I'll settle for a fast ship and a wookie sidekick :D

@Plan B

Yes, DoD takes place only a few month after RotS so Jedi are still out there, watching and waiting,

@Jemal

It's more for the NPC and such.

@Moira

Yes

Eh, since everyone's snuggling up to the force users anyway, I figure someone need to know how to pilot a ship and be good with a blaster :D I'll aim for a Twi'lek Smuggler. Wookie sidekick will depend on build and points :P

Ah, in that case here's a coule of personal suggestions:
for a standard Lightsaber, I'd go with Damage ~9, 9 being the toughness of steel.

For Blasters they do have some standard examples in the book: Blaster Pistol ranged damage 5, Blaster rifle ranged damage 8.

These may seem a bit powerful for 'standard' weapons, but given that it wouldn't be a 'super hero' game, then PL 8-10 characters aren't necessarily bullet-proof super-powered types, just force-powered or very skilled humanoids, and as such 'standard' weapons SHOULD be in the area of being able to take them down, but not enough to one-shot them.

Then there's of course the thermal detonator: I'd run it as essentially plastic explosives(Damage 10), possibly with a linked effect or higher rank, depending on how badass you want it to feel.

This thread

and

This one

Have some really nice and pretty accurate info for making characters. Hustlers thread has info on the clone wars battle droid forces which were recent to the movie, and the setting thread would require minimal conversion for updated empire era characters.

I'm interested.

I have this cool concept for a character who is a droid created in the Old Republic Era by a Sith Lord seeking immortality. The droid's CPU was made with holocron technology to store the Sith Lord's memories, personality, and he even intended to transfer his spirit into it.
Unfortunately, things went wrong. Before he could complete his work, the Sith Lord was assassinated by his apprentice and his secret laboratory collapsed and buried him and the droid.
Thousands of years later, archaeologists of the Galactic Empire, in search of Sith relics for the Emperor, uncovered the ruins of the laboratory and the droid.
Scanning the droid, the archaeologists found what looked like a Sith holocron embedded in its head, something that would be insanely valuable to Emperor Palpatine. However, the scan unintentionally activated the droid who falsely believed that he was his creator, only cut off from the force and trapped in a mechanical body, and once he overheard the archaeologists talk about disassembling him, he fought his way out and escaped.

So basically a droid who believes himself to be a Sith Lord and seeks to either hide from or destroy the Empire for self-preservation.

This sounds interesting. Depending on how a submission to another game goes I have an idea for a Verpine Force Adept that I'll flesh out and post up here.

I was talking with Moira via PM and am contemplating throwing in the Wookie part of her pitch.

My only problem to date is that I don`t want to play a Chewbacca clone as it were...
