Hey /swg/ what do you think of my character background for an upcoming eote/aor game, its set about 15 years after episode VI. Its a rough overview, but give any criticism that you can.

I had the idea of being an older test pilot for the Incom corporation on Fresia, helping test such fighters as the Z95 headhunter, arc 170, and other such ships during the clone wars. After the fall of the republic and the rise of the empire, he continued to work for Incom, but found the ever-increasing authoritarianism of the empire to be too overbearing. So he defected to the rebel alliance along with a few other Incom employees who sympathized with the rebellion, stealing several x-wing prototypes in the process.

A little cliche but not the worst I've seen You could also make him a maintainer and simulator junkie that got his first chance to fly in the escape operation, and turned out to be halfway decent at it. That lets you have some room for growth, as well as character conflict as he finds out what "real" combat piloting is like, and have a buddy-buddy "we both fix shit first and pilot later" feel when hanging with his astromech. Hell, he might have a closer attachment to the droids in the unit than the other people, and wind up being a sort of unofficial unit medic for the 'bots.

Yeah. don't play any RPG with 8 players. Especially not EotE since the system crawls with more than 4 players. It's like D&D in that regard.

Cut some players, then give them a corellian freighter and you should be good to go. Or, you know, don't give them a fucking ship right off the bat, that kinda takes away the potential for them to earn it.

Sounds neat. I think an SSD crashing down would get your party's attention even if it's just a vision. Look into Battlefront's version of it if you need details - or for that matter Lost Stars. Interestingly enough, much of the Rebel wrecks didn't come down from enemy fire, but got dragged down by doomed Imperial ships out of spite.

YV-545. It's the YT series' ugly duckling cousin.

>>44652816
Aren't test pilots usually some of the best? They're being trusted with shiny new prototypes, you don't want mediocre guys behind the stick.

Just have him as a space trucker who flew freighters around, then. Hell, maybe you actually could be a literal navigator on a spice freighter, just like Anakin, er...wasn't.

Why not have him be a ferry pilot? When a ship breaks (or the client wants it delivered), he's the guy who flies out a replacement. No combat flying (well, usually), just point A to point B. Most of Incom's stuff was hyperdrive-enabled, so it might be easier to send out just one ship with a ferry pilot instead of loading it on a carrier.
>>
>>44653414

You wouldn't.
It's not a combat ship and doesn't belong in a game about dogfighting.

>>44653424
So the kind of guy who keeps a datapad pull of books to read while hurtling through hyperspace? I kind of like that, a weird hybrid of trucker and fighter pilot

>I rather like that idea, I would however like to keep the test pilot aspect, as I'm not trying to set him up as a great pilot, just that he knows how to fly.
I worked as an avionics maintainer for a long time. We all stole whatever simulator time we could, to the point that most of our guys actually were capable of firing up the jet on our own - one of our guys >did< in 2000. The brass also occasionally calls in maintainers and tech-heads to do tests with new equipment from the point of view of the guy who actually knows what's going on inside those weird black boxes, and a lot of manufacturers use their assembly or repair guys as simjocks as well. Not saying that he can't be a pilot, but it would certainly be interesting to have him be someone, say, rejected by the Imp Academy for some disqualifying thing like height, politics, or a mild injury. Hired on with Incom, turns out to have talent on the stick during sim testing but the military brass won't let him fly for reals. When they bail, he flies cover as one of the few willing to defect who have stick time on the T-65, and the Rebs take him as a combat pilot based on his record during the escape and/or >assuming< he's one of the "official" test pilots (which he technically is).

Boom.
Reason to hate the empire, reason to love the Rebs, reason to be a former test pilot without having to blow all your character points on piloting skill, and some distinct character conflicts with room for growth during the game.

Well, it's got a top-of-the-line intel and ECM suite, it's the size of a Raider, and it has a spinal Turbolaser but little other heavy armament. Good command ship, but it's really on par with a GR-75 in terms of suitability for combat.
>>
>>44653424

How would he get back? Loading it on a ship gives him a way to get back. Sending him there in a ship doesn't make sense unless there's a return route of other ships.
>>
>>44653460
Ooh! Interesting idea. He gets instructions to deliver an X-Wing prototype to a client, very hush-hush. He figures its some corporate politics. What he doesn't know is that it's actually the Alliance, so their engineers can see if it fits their needs - and if it's worth launching the risky operation to basically boost the entire X-Wing production apparatus.

So he still plays a role i the theft of the X-Wing without having to be a dogfighting ace. He gets brought along for the ride, essentially, when Incom defects.
>>
>>44653579
It's also said to be heavily armored and shielded, and have capital-grade engines.
Also, it has six turbolasers and IIRC a few quads.
That's plenty of fighting ability, IMO
>>
>>44653496

The GR-75 is a MILITARY transport that saw action at Hoth and Endor.

>>44653508

There are better options for Scum epic ships.
Even just inventing one like they did with the Raider would be a better option.

Karrde himself would make a good crew upgrade.
>>
>>44653666

Raider was a good invention from FFG.

Could co-opt an existing transport or have them invent a new one for Scum, it'd probably be neat whatever the decide to make.

>Could not Scum get Huge Ships
Interceptor frigate, Crusader corvette, etc would all make better huge ships

Wild Karrde has like 3-4 turbos, and it's tough as fuck.

>>44653589

Usually they catch a civilian ride back after shipping their cargo over. Sometimes you just can't spare the time to have something shipped properly when you can direct-fly it somewhere in a fraction of the time, and it's harder to hijack a prototype with someone sitting in it.
>>
>>44653715

With 4 dinky little twin laser cannons.
Meanwhile the Wild Karrde is packing a trio of turbolasers and an unspecified number and composition of smaller weapons systems. And it's probably not the only Action VI so modified running around the galaxy.
Literally all it takes for an aspiring pirate to turn an Action VI into a warship is bolting on some guns and a shield generator. Your argument is like saying that Toyota Technicals have no place in AK47 Republic.

Actually, it's a photocomposite, done in 1986 or earlier, and was used as the frontispiece in the West End Games Star Wars 1e book. They just flipped the image and lightened it up; I'm pretty sure I saw it back in ~'85 being used in a promo item, but I was in first grade at the time so that's a bit suspect.

Note the blue underlighting on the B-Wings - it's an artifact of the processes LFL used in the RotJ era, and actually extremely hard to fake with CGI, They went through and cleaned it up in the Special Editions. You can also see the plastic edges inside the cockpit.

So, uh, don't go shooting off about CG unless you know what to look for.

There's plenty of great Star Wars comics both legends and canon. KOTOR/KOTOR 2 are awesome video games and so are the Jedi Knight games and force unleashed. Not much into the novels but I hear the X-wing books are awesome. Some people swear by TCW/Rebels; I personally have found them pretty hit and miss but there is some Star Wars gold hidden in the shit. I see it like krokodil to the movies' heroin.

Basically canon is everything that came out after 2014 so that Disney didn't have to deal with the clusterfuck of post-ROTJ novel continuity. Check the OP for a canon guide. A lot of legends is bad, but a good amount of it is really great and canon by itself is pretty barebones right now.

Seriously, not a joke. Got one almost for free from the rebels, but at that point it had been hollowed out and crammed with explosives as a ramming ship to take on the death star. Once that went kaput, they took out the explosives and dumped it in our lap. We never needed to pay for boom again, just needed to peel open any random panel and odds were good we'd find some.

>>44654168
>the Wild Karrde does not have any turbolasers
Yes. Yes it does.
Karrde prefers to just get out of there if trouble shows up, but he's not stupid enough to fly around in an unarmed ship.
She has military grade shields running on an independent power supply, a high end sensor suite, a sensor mask system, and a couple of turbolasers (exact number varying by source, but turbos are explicitly mentioned as being present in Dark Force Rising).
>>44654211
>EaW made them too big scale wise
It also made them ugly as shit, and raised a big logical question of "Why the blueberry fuck would you make all those structural changes?" At that point you might as well just build a whole new ship.
>>44654314
So apparently you know more about Talon Karrde and his ship than Timothy mother fucking Zahn? You know, the guy who CREATED both of them?
>Karrde is a "violence is the last refuge of the incompetent" guy.
No, Karrde is an "I'm not going to engage in a fight I can avoid, because that's bad business" guy. Only a fool would fly around in a transport ship full of highly valuable illegal goods and be without any means of defending himself from pirates WHILE he gets out of there.
>>
>>44654439
They do, but you really have to be dumping bolts down range to start running out in a fight. Some designs are horrendously inefficient for one reason or another, but most guns are fine if you reload between fights
>>
>>44654456
Does it feature non-humans in the main cast? I always feel the films are really lacking in major characters that aren't just humans and actually have significant roles.

I love how nuCanon, for all its flaws, is drawing directly off his designs. It's an homage to what we never had the focus or budget to see, drawing off source material to help develop the same feel.

>>44654475

Although this is a good point. A lot of his artwork is pretty lacking. Many organic shapes are shortcut, as are pretty much all plants. His work works to emphasize the size of things, and he seems to love the architectural designs the most. As such, he really reduces the detail that some of these props would have added to them to make them fit, the kind of unpolished, dirty, lived-in aesthetic we know Star Wars to have. He's done great work, and helped establish the setting and the feeling of the place, but leave the ship-designers and prop-makers to prop-making and let the concept artist play with the concepts.

Well she might well be a different faction pilot. The Rogue Shadow never actually fought alongside (in fact it mostly fought against) the Empire, since the standing orders were to teamkill any potential witnesses. So it'd have to be Rebel by default, after it swapped sides.

I wonder if they'd actually make the Rogue Shadow somehow a unique ship, since they only built one.

TFW you actually did this in 1999 as the plot of a WEG D6 adventure.

>What vehicles do you take?
Sail barge. When you're going drunkenly opulent, go with the best. Had a couple of Swoops, but the party wrecked those in a bar brawl.

>What servants do you take?
Droid coolies with extravagantly racist Indian accents, an assortment of local prostitutes (one was a PC, a rebel agent trying to turn the effete and rather dim Noble funding the expedition), a local tracker (off-duty Bounty Hunter PC), and an armorer and mechanic team for when things go south.

>What supplies do you take?
Vast quantities of prostitutes, spice, and blackja- uh, sabaac. Also rather a lot of alcohol.

>What weapons do you take?
Slugthrowers, vibroblades, a sawed-off E-WHB that the Wookie bodyguard was using as a Howdah pistol (pic related, only waaay bigger).

>What luxuries do you take?
See "supplies", above.

>How does it go horribly wrong?
Ion storm + overefficient port inspector + angry Krayt dragon + busted engine + blaster cannon on "stun" setting

>How does it go horribly right?
Coke and prostitute-fueled party on a sail barge pulled by an extremely confused Krayt Dragon, with one (1) Imperial port inspector handcuffed and left face-down in a pile of glitterstim with his pants off, for his subordinates to find.

God I miss that campaign.

Those types aren't allowed anywhere near actual prototypes. Only the elite of the elite fly experimental, and maybe a hot shit prospect test pilot.

The ring knocking jackass who aborts missions because he think his mode-4 is broken because he never turned it on doesn't sit in the pilot chair until long after the official production has started, and even then the first in the seats are the trainers whom are the best in squadron who train everyone else.

The longer they go without a mem-wipe, the more sentient they tend to get. One of the reasons you're supposed to wipe them regularly. Apparently particularly old droids tend to get "ghosts in the machine" and keep personality traits even after complete factory resets, while others learn to squirrel away bits and peices of info in systems or areas that don't get paved (or keep backups as a failsafe).

>>44659009
And 20 years younger, which makes swapping shitty shield generators for better hull plating work pretty well from a differentiation standpoint. Plating makes them a tad heavier and slower, and they tend to get used as bombers in TCW a lot, so rather than deal with Bomb Loadout it's just built-in.

I always got the impression that the Rebs hot-rodded their Y-wings. Rip the plating since it's not all that effective against next-gen blasters and they only plan to use them in the black (where streamlining is for pussies and A-wings), use the saved power and weight to squeeze a few more points out of the sublight engine and overcharge the shields. Swapping out the gunner seat, second pilot's stores, and most of the turret can't have hurt the weight and power supplies either.
>>
>>44659954

Also probably saved them cash and man-hours in maintenance.
