But then they wouldn't be able to sell you the dedicated Make-Your-Own-Starship book.

That, or their license with Disney limits how customisable they can make things.

If it's a Disney thing, shame on Disney.  (Especially for the number of ships in the core book.  A little better as they put out more books, but still...)

Or that FFG doesn't think about those things and so they don't actually have a system behind their numbers.

I mean, it's not like you're playing Mekton or something.

Yea.. but then you get to play the "Is the player ship OP?  We'll find out when the dice drop!" game.  I don't like that game.  Or.. vice versa.. "Oh.  I DID blow you to pieces in two shots.  Huh.  Bad guy was a little too high.  Wish I had creation rules."

Having playtested the SC3 initiative system in the wild now, I freaking love it, and find it (at least so far) to be the best initiative system I've seen to date in any RPG, let alone Crafty's offerings.

Right.  So... we're going to need a station wagon, some pizza, some mountain dew and some Amobarbital.  Road trip to see what Gentry knows! lol

Thanks lads. Smiley
I'm back on even keel, I'll be back in action here soon enough.

Welcome back!  Me too!  And.. you'll excuse me if I don't try to catch up here.  I'll jump in on the next topic if apt, though. lol

If you're going to use what seems to be somewhat important numerical guide lines for things, and said things are kind of important to the game, do NOT leave out the flippin' rules to create your own.  FFG's Star Wars.  Starships?  You know.. the crux behind pilot's stories and the tales that they tell?  Or the infamous bounty hunter and her ship that is hunting you down?  Yea.  Use the books.. ..or guess.  Because we don't have formal rules in a very number happy system.  *grumps and flings notebook across table*  Oh, I'm finally back home again!  *catches up on all things crafty*

I backed it on Kickstarter back in the day but it's landed during a period of insane frenzy for me. I'll get to it as soon as I can manage, though that may still be months off. Sad

Similar but probably less hectic boat as Crafty. It's on my "To be Played" list.  Hopefully by mid-spring.  Heck, our gaming group hasn't met in what seems to be ages right now.  Ugh.

Don't you mean the Arabian Desert?

The sand is smarter the people currently living atop it.  I didn't to wrongly offend the sand dunes.

Quite honestly, I think the WWE has the best way to solve the Middle East.  We take away everyone's nuclear weapons, chemical weapons, and flamethrowers.  We clear out the women and children and any sensible man who wants no part of the idiocy.  We take all the keys to all the vehicles, put them in a giant hamster wheel, give it a spin and then scatter them to the 4 winds.  Do the same with guns and magazines.  We then rope off the middle east with giant elastic bands and give everyone 12 rounds of .45 ACP and a pistol.  You manage to find a key to a tank?  Lucky day!  Or a M16 with a proper magazine?  ...and some ammo?  Upgrade!  We'll Call it.. the Middle East Royal Rumble!  And maybe.. just maybe.. by the time the Sahara has turned red with the blood of arrogance, pride and stupidity, we'll get somewhere.  

Oh.. and we'll televise it.  Put it towards all the widows and orphans this mess has made and is about to make.

So.. the terribly silly people can no longer say weather alternation or -ology deficient?  Huh.

Only because he'd approve:

Well, where did we have him last?

 Cry
The great Sir Terry Pratchett  is now the late Sir Terry Pratchett, and the world gets another little bit worse.   Cry  Cry



Yet we were made a little better by having him.

Been lately preoccupied with large amounts of not giving a shit, but here's a topic:
http://news.yahoo.com/feds-abandon-plan-ban-popular-rifle-ammo-175810302--politics.html

AP ammo is just good fun?

Green tips are for the lazy.  Just build a 12 Gauge Bolo round.  Pop off 5 of those, you've created swiss cheese.

If you like the concept, Heroes Die is a wonderful book series.  As for a game based on SAO, I've been toying with the idea of "souls" that die from another plane get summoned to help save "the world", and all the souls that have been summoned are trapped there until someone does... but that's as far as I've gotten.

So PAX East starts today.  Any news you guys are looking forward to?

I've got Cities: Skylines on the 10th.  Outside of that.. Division ever gets some more info out, that'd be nice.  Witcher 3 is already a known commodity for me.  So, unless there's some interesting "Surprise!", not much.  Though, I do look forward to to the next episode of Law & Order: SVU based on PAX.  Maybe they'll go all 2 parter this time round!

EA has killed off Maxis.  Cry
it was only one maxis studio the same one that made sim city. the developer though is still around.

Well, that kinda makes me feel better.  Because that SimCity was a train wreck.
Weren't the "always online" and "nearly an MMO" "features" crap EA forced the devs to tack on?

(Which is not to say that I wouldn't be interested in a multiplayer Sim City, and/or having my cities interact with those of my friends.)


Yes.  The biggest issue I had with SimCity though was the engine.  It was terrible handling simulations and was so top heavy that the maps became incredibly small.  Add on the fact that the engine would constantly get confused when trying to handle the MMO features.. and yea... no bueno.
