I guess for me its IP, but the mechanics can't be far off.   I say that because I fell in love with Shadowrun after reading v1.  And anyone whose tried to look or get into V1 rules knows that was no fun.    

If the IP is strong enough, you can use any mechanics for it.    I have a friend who I debate back and forth over on how to use the Priest class from FC as a Jedi.

As another SR2 vet, let me say that the SR5 character creation rules sap my will to live.

Premades, or at least templates, aren't a bad idea for them treasuring preparation.

I didn't think they were that bad. I'm not crazy about going back to the priority system, but it was a hell of a lot better than the point system in v3/v4.

I'd suggest really looking into the Shadowrun v5 rules now.   They make more sense and can be done on the fly, right along with combat and it doesn't slow things down.   Now I haven't played the rules, but have been reading through them to understand them more.  Especially with being wireless for most things now.   Something added in v3 that didn't make much sense at the time, but now with v5, its much better.   Who ever is now on the writing team for SR 5, really did a good job on the rules.   

Just to note, I have all 5 rules sets v1 - v5, so I've seen the rules mature.  I think v5 is the best yet.

Well, for their mostly being huge Star Wars nerds, I was a bit puzzled by th decision that Han was building a snow cave rather than, as you can clearly see in the film, erecting an insulated tent. Beyond that though. I can't really see any other thing they could have easily tested.

That's what I thought too.  A thermo-insulated tent with maybe a portable heater of some kind.  Just had to keep Luke warm enough till he was done.

For those who've yet to see it, or want to see it again: Mythbusters Star Wars special

For all the specials the Mythbusters have done, I thought this one was a bit weak.

Sorry, didn't mean to get this off on a SW tangent. 
25  Community / Off-Topic / Re: Off Topic: RPGs with Narrative Dice on: January 18, 2014, 09:30:00 PM
I haven't played a set of SW rules since West End, and I'm looking for a decent set.

So avoid FFG's Star Wars rules?

Since a critical hit requires spending an Action Die, otherwise its just a threat.   The character would have to spend an action die on each one.  At least that's how I would rule it.  And since most characters don't have that many action dice, that would limit how many they could do at a time.

That or a LMD that doesn't know what it is.   I base that on the conversation in the first episode between Hill and the Dr.
