The Neb-B feels redundant in that fleet to be honest, it's not large enough to be a line ship and and there's not enough to justify it as an escort compared to the longer and more heavily armed Carracks.

I haven't read it myself, so I can't say. From what I've heard it's some good, some bad but it's not something that I've heard a lot about. All I know is that it feels more like a harder military sci fi than Star Wars usually is, so if that's what you're looking for go right ahead.

They aren't very common and sort of end up in that niche of specialist vehicles (Death Stars, Torp spheres) and core-ships part of the CIS doughnuts.
Most of the aesthetic is still following more of a WW1-2 'battleship' appearance with conning towers, broadsides, antennas and greebles hanging off them and their style of warfare is more oriented towards visually blowing the shit out of each other in closer engagements. So the mechanical and tactical advantage of a big ball able to float around with multiple, radial arcs of fire, isn't so much of a consideration for them.

Nothing wrong with stealing something like a Battletech dropship though and just statting it up
>>
>>61972462
The inclusion of the neb-B and CR-90s in what otherwise seems like a dedicated cruiser-hunting taskforce seems odd, but if their job is to scout and call the others in to bring the hammer down it makes some sense.
Overall not something I'd want to fuck around with if I didn't have several heavy cruisers or a battleship handy

Fund it, even if the peasants have to eat cake
>>
>>61973115
For the same reason that dogfights take place with ships within a hundred feet of one another, rather than miles between them. It's more visual interesting to a viewer.
>>
>>61973152
Realistically in nu-canon, fight should be millions of kilometers apart, and determined by which capital ship identifies the other first to toss a warp missile at it
>>
>>61973152
The assumption of in-universe incompetence opens up things to retarded Spacebattles faggotry. Why not assume that the people in universe are, in fact, using their equipment properly and that the engaging at visual range is the tactically sound option?
>>
>>61973208
Nah, warp missiles have to be directly piloted by stronk purple-haired womyn who don't need no man, and there's a galactic scarcity after Imperial pogroms during the waning years of the Empire. It's said that the Rebels were attempting a covert program to infiltrate and subvert Imperial learning institutions in order to foster a wave of these individuals, codenamed tumblrina, in order to achieve a decision victory over the Empire once and for all.
>>
Is there any reason why most ships in Star Wars look so undergunned for their size? The CR-90 I can see since it's supposed to be a mass market ship rather than a full warship, but that ship is only around 20 meters shorter than pic related and most larger ships don't have nearly as many guns as their size would allow.
>>
>>61973244
i think the assumption is that sensor baffling is absurdely good on ships but poor for missiles and combined with the ability to instantly bug out of any fight not going your way means that long range fighting isnt viable most of the time. als\o anyone have sauce that interdiction tech is new in the movies? because a lot of eu shit somehow makes less sense.
>>61973335

I mean since like '78 the canon simple explination used is that EWAR powerlevels made BVR impossible

The power requirements, I guess. They necessitate a large hull, but the weapons mounts themselves (in spite of how power hungry they are) aren't that big,

>>61973348
most of the energy has to be reserved for hyperspace maybe?
>>
>>61973335
We know. Go away.

>>61973348
Because those guns take a LOT of power and as a result you can mount a lot less of them than when physical space is the relevant limiter

Rule of Cool
We can speculate all we want (and frequently do!) as to the why and hows, but mostly some nose picking degenerate staring at a radar screen, punching buttons isn't nearly as interesting as multiple big fucking guns going boom, shit exploding and crap flying everywhere.
>>
>>61973348
Imagine if everything of MTB or larger size carried shields that occupied minimal space but required 14"+guns to shoot through.
That's basically star wars
>>
>>61973448
And the turrets are probably massive at the human scale anyway, it's just that ISDs and similar ships are so large that they dwarf the actually-massive size of their main batteries
>>
>>61973470
Well yeah. Scaling from the models the octouple barbettes on an ISD-II are bigger than the fucking Yamato's main guns
>>
>>61973470
But you can fit 10 double turbolaser cannons on a modified CR-90 hull with minimal issues, so clearly power generation isn't that much of an issue.
https://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Corellian_Buccaneer
>>
>>61973348
In addition to power requirements, as others havd said, large ships in starwars almost always also serve as carriers for smaller ships, and thus do not have room on the inside to mount more external weaponry.
>>
>>61973553
so it seems, but i wonder how often that ship would have to be refitted top to bottom to accomadate that kind of constant power draw. on a large scale theres just no way you can have your mainline craft like that.
also grabbing some random ass ship from the twitching asshole of a thoroughly reamed eu that just happens to work differently from all the other ships we see just to support your argument is super disingenuous.
>>
Is it shitty of me to make the antagonist of my game Dark Helmet?
>>
>>61973553
Those aren't especially *powerful* turbolasers, though
There's good reasons why nobody strapped a couple dozen 3" guns on to a BB hull and presumably equivalent ones in SW unless you are a "well clearly everyone in universe is a terrible naval architect and only I am enlightened enough to notice" spacebattles.net/sufficientautism type

Seeing as the flight sims were actually power management sims with a flying minigame, I'm guessing that alpha-striking with all 10 double turbos will force the crew to stick to one-gun plinking for a few seconds or minutes unless you want to shunt power from shields to guns to keep up the rate of fire.

Survivability and combat damage are interesting points.
Ultimately you want to destroy the enemy, but getting your arse shot off in the process and taking huge amounts of career ending paperwork damage is probably the higher priority for most Captains. You don't want to lose your ship, going down with the ship was more preferable than a court martial court in history because they will fuck you up. Course if your fleet commander says damn the torpedos, close in to do maximum damage when you where happily sitting back, plinking away and not really doing much more than a show of force- thats his arse which gets dragged through the process of "why your ships got all fucked up"

Which may or may not be a small bit of consolation as you float around in a life pod.

I was having a conversation a while ago with a guy with a lot of naval wargaming and naval wargame design experience and he said something that seems really relevant to this conversation, and it was that if you're designing a game for a fictional universe you should always design the rules so that the in-universe iconic designs *and tactics* are sensible ones, rather than designing a rules set where the canon stuff translates terribly and the only usable stuff is min-maxed homebrew

>>61973796
Aye, but the thing is that when it comes to ships there are some things that just don't work. The CR-90 you can always justify being a subpar combat vessel by using the excuse of it being a vessel sold directly to the civilian market and therefore not being as well armed as a dedicated warship of comparable size.

On the note of thd consequences historical naval officers faced, with how the Empire operates it's amazing that Pellaeon walked away from being the man to give the retreat order from two major imperial defeats with not just his reputation and command, but his life. At the very least, he would have been heavily encouraged to kill himself for not fighting the Rebel scum to the last man, like Friedrich Paulus was.

I can assure you with 200% certainty that WEG put less thought into the theoretical implications of that design in SW naval design meta terms than you did into this post.
If one design in a RPG supplement somewhere seems to reveal a gaping hole in all other ship designs which are generally consistent-ish with one another, it's the better way to ignore or retcon that one thing rather than going "oh gee everything else is wrong, why is that?"

Like that one AoR adventure with the device that renders shields completely useless?
>>
>>61973997
By that point in the war, he was probably the last loyal, competent officer left that the Moffs could easily manipulate. Pellaeon was dutiful to a fault, which made him a safe and pliable asset--a lion among lions who bowed to donkeys if they happened to have shinier rank pins. Plus, I'm guessing a shitton of the remaining Imperial Navy felt some personal loyalty to the old grandpa of the Empire. If Old Gil committed sudoku or resigned, the next guy might have been willing to GAS, GAS, GAS or desert with a fuckton of now-grumpy Imp assets.

Turbolasers are basically naval guns of various sizes. Not all turbolasers are created equal, just like a 5"/38' is different from a 16"/50'
>>
>>61974238
The number of traitors in the Empire was a minority. Far more either believed in the New Order or wanted to do their jobs. The majority weren't backstabbing powergrabbers.
>>
>>61974552
This is true, the only problem is WEG and it's utterly haphazard methods of assigning weapon stats means that sometimes you got large ships with tiny guns or tiny ships with ridiculously overpowered guns for their size like the Amiral de Corvette over here is citing or the motherfucking skipray fiasco
>>
>>61974634
The way WEG does the whole exceeding defense = instant destruction thing only makes it even more dumbfounding. A corvette can theoretically pump out enough damage to blow up an ISD in one attack just because it passes its total defense. I think the same thing applied to land vehicles, so if you rigged up your speederbike to fire the right kind of laser it could blow up a sail barge in one shot.

A pic of John Byng got posted above. I can see there being accusations of Pel being a coward, same happened to Byng, but the Navy overwhelmingly wanted him to live and it was King George who pushed on with the death penalty. In this case if Palpatine was even still around he doesn't seem the type dumb enough to execute a competent and loyal officer against everyone's wishes just to prove some kind of egopoint. George was weird.

Star Wars always played fast and loose with actual ship armaments, and the Buccaneer is still not as heavily armed (debatable though) as a Nebulon B, which itself isn't actually that large when you consider the fact that the ship's design leaves it with a lot of empty space to the point where the usable sections of the ship are barely larger than the corvette with which it being compared.
>>61974753
That's only if the total defence is passed by 16 or higher, which is actually not that common if you stick to using smaller vessels.

The prebuilt cards are meant for beginners who don’t know anything about the game or how to build semi competent ships. Those cards are used as a starting block for them to try ships out without getting overwhelmed.

It’s assumed that if you’re buying a conversion kit, you aren’t a beginner and don’t need your hand held to build a list. Anyway, the link here has them

I was thinking they might just be sent in to try to extract someone, then get trapped by an automatic tractor beam, forcing them to find a way to either turn the whole thing off or take some level of control. Perhaps, if they found it entertaining, I could lure them into thd bowels of the ship with signs of great treasure

You could maybe have unreliable intel play a part in that? Have some civilian tell them about it, and get the class wrong(Thinking it's some sort of Cruiser instead of a Vic Star)?
Although if that's too...unbelievable(I don't blame you, Star Destroyers ARE distinctive), he could know it's a Vic Star, but report it as some old mothballed VSD I that was kept in drydock since the Clone Wars, when in actuality it's a fully modernized VSD II?

Not him, but a solo film for either Fett or Obi-Wan were never confirmed in the first place, and after the poor box office reception for Solo - it had a $100 million dollar loss - they put some of the side films on hold. Not all, we know that some are still on-going, but Neil Lamont (TFA supervising art director, production designer for R1 and Solo) said that they put a movie that was going to take place at least partially on Tatooine on hold.

Quick question, /swg/. Im not too informed on the lore, so i was curious as to how in the fuck did the Hutts actually obtain any power over people?
>>
>>61986334
The Hutts were among the first to begin the widespread manufacture and distribution of spice and other drugs, which got them shittons of money. Over time, they've basically formed Mexican supercartels, using their drug money to invest into other businesses and the slave trade.

Basically, they hold the money and the drugs, so they can either buy people off to fight for them or get drug-addicted lunatics to do whatever they say by threatening to bogart them.
>>
>>61986334
Market manipulation and real life mafia tactics of extortion. The Hutts are not naturally corpulant, and are physically imposing in their natural state. Their history is old and their lives are long, so they enjoy playing the long game.
>>
>>61986319
yeah, this morning
>>
>>61974753

What rules are you using? WEG uses a condition track, not total defense. If you exceed a ships defensive rolls by one or two points all you're doing is lowering it's shields or ionizing a couple of systems. To inflict even normal damage you need to exceed shields and hull by a fairly large amount.
>>
>>61986334
Originally, the Hutts were a warrior race whose military expansion got entire species swearing eternal oaths of fealty to them. Then they destroyed their homeworld in a civil war like ten thousand years before the PT and switched to money as their weapon of choice.
>>
>>61986267
>That shot was pretty cool, so in that case I say it paid off.
But was necessary for completely unimportant scene? And wouldn't it look good shot in a more sensible manner? Reading the Art of The Last Jedi it looks like to the great annoyance of the experienced people around him Johnson insisted on making a lot of things the traditional way wasting insane money on trivial stuff

People forget that Tatooine isn't actually the main seat of Hutt power and they control not just their home system but maintain Hutt Space as politically distinct from the republic and only ever nominally part of the empire. They have their own planets as industrial and populous as Coruscant.

Imagine them as being gangsters and smugglers with tight connections to governmental powers. Similar to how real life drug smugglers will often hand out kickbacks to politicians and have a fair amount of back and forth between them(a good example being Caribbean cocaine smuggling, especially in the 80's and 90's into Florida), or how foreign powers will assist criminals in rival nations for their own gain(an example of THIS being how China and Chinese criminals are currently importing Fentanyl to the west as a part of a larger political scheme).

As such Hutt cartel's will always have safe harbor and a place to resupply. Hutt bosses will always have a line of credit to a force the Republic and Empire can't really control. Hutt ships are also traditionally fairly deadly because they can bribe imperial officials into letting designers and factories pump out fighters like the Kimogila and Krayt gunship that are heavily armed enough that any imperial equivalent is highly outclassed. They aren't unique in that since every other major player in 'the game'(Black Sun, Mandalorians, ect.) knows how to bribe and has their own entities.

Seems easily remedied to me if you write a Han solo origin movie that opens with an exciting TIE fighter "battle" scene, which we later find out Han is piloting. Then he gets kicked out of the academy for not following protocol or something like that during the chase and we can move on to smuggler/heist shenanigans/whatever story you want want to tell

There's an EU book by Zahn called Star Wars Allegiance that covers a group of loyalist stormtroopers trying to clear their squad's good name from accusations of treason. They inadvertently assist the main cast heroes of the Rebellion (Han, Luke, Chewie, etc) without recognizing them under orders from Mara Jade who inexplicably has the hots for Luke like 10 years before the Thrawn trilogy. Well written on its own, but in the context of the greater EU, it's an textbook example of everything wrong with the EU.

If I'm trying to write an adventure in a relatively less known part of Star Wars (for EotE), anywhere you guys would recognize? I want to try and break from the generic "Hutt makes you do things because crime lord" mold, as well as not having setting and lore autism play in too much.

Reee, Aves replies "I suppose I really don't wanna know" to Jade saying she's going to talk to a jedi. And a little bit more dialogue after that is missing too. Guess that's a limit of the comic format

Make up a planet/system, that way autists at the table can't call you wrong. This also has the benefit of letting you slip in any bits you want down the road.

But I think a fun way to break the crime lord mold is to do stuff about exploring a relatively unknoen world and setting up a colony.

It's pretty specific to me

Basically the distributor wouldn't ship the 2.0 orders until EVERYTHING had arrived, so with the Scum CC/TIE Advanced delay everything is supposedly coming in today

Problem is I gotta travel for the weekend and I won't be able to pick my stuff up until I get back. I'm also traveling next weekend and those are our X-Wing days here.

>>
>>61988510

A MC-80 and a pair of dreadnaughts or pre-80 MC series boats or maybe assault frigates

>An ex-Imperial pilot with cog tattoos and a modded TIE Fighter, just looking for one last great battle

Alright, that sounds pretty neat. Shame he's surrounded by the rest of the crew though.
>>
>>61988629
A MonCal 80 with a small escort fleet would be sufficiently overpowered. A lone VSD is quite deadly; there's a nice story of a skillful Imperial admiral decimating a pirate fleet that outnumbered his two (2) VSDs about 93-1 with less than thirty casualties opposed to something like 5000 pirates. An MC-80 could take one one-on-one but the VSD could slug it up a bit, so if you're really wanting to show your soon-to-be Imp party things are gonna be tough, an MC-80 or two backed by two CR-90s, a Neb-B, and half a dozen starfighter and starbomber squadrons respectively.

Much appreciated. I'll have the VSD undergoing repairs to become a Model 2 when the force user/inquisitor of the group will get a vision of an imminent attack (alternatively last minute warning from Imperial intelligence). That should give them enough of a headstart to get the ship out of the repair/upgrade shipyard and formulate a strategy.

I feel like I should feel guilty for wanting him to simultaneously subvert and live down to expectations.
>>
>>61988629
I'd say a battlegroup of two dreadnaughts and two assault frigates plus a MC 30/40 and maybe a neb-B would so it for smaller boats.
Otherwise, a pair of MC80bs or possibly a Victory of their own and a MC-80 would do it

Not at all anon, like and prefer and dream anything you want. It's just many anons have been eagerly looking to some Imperial heroes in NuCanon, and we've been sorely disappointed for a very long time. Even in the EU we didn't have many, and way too many "wtf i hate the empire becuz rebels told me!?!?!": defectors. If Disney of all things actually gives us a good - not arguably, subjectively good depending on your beliefs, but OBJECTIVELY good even to normie audiences - Imperial who remains an Imperial and a hero it's a huge hecking triumph.

It's bias I fully admit, but there's nothing wrong with it feel. Surely even Rebel lovers can respect a good Imperial.

check out the WEG adventure module Starfall, taking place in a VSD as it has been attacked, and the players must escape befoer it is destroyed. It had deck plans for that ship as you maneuver through it to escape. Maybe you can extrapolate from that since the Interdictor is closer to size to an VSD than an ISD?

Have the old D6 adventures aged well, as in are they worth converting to FFG?

Some seem doable, but a lot of them just seem very... weird.
>>
>>61989438
he said he's not on day-to-day basis with the show because he's focusing on other projects
>>
>>61989464
there's good stuffs in all of them, on average no weirder than EOTE which is pretty colored by some retarded 80's designer behavior. I will say there's a surprising amount of weird talking animals and crap like that. Plenty are worth stealing from and using. I believe there's already a project to convert some on the FFG forums, check that first.
Some of them are here: http://www.legendsofthegalaxy.com/Adventure-Downloads/

The ones that instantly come to mind that are worth looking at are, Starfall, Darkstryder (atleast the first one), Far Orbit Campaign, Tatooine Manhunt, The Minos Cluster campaign, Tapani boxed set (more setting than module, though it has one), Flashpoint! Brak sector, Introductory adventure box set and uh, Instant adventures I guess.
>>
>>61989464
Why on earth would you want to use the old adventures but the awful new system? Do you now feel locked-in by your collection of terrible dice?
>>
>>61989609
I've heard Lords of the Expanse is also really good, as well as Starfall and Manhunt.

Besides the talking animals and sometimes awkward illustrations a lot of them also feel way too railroaded for my tastes. Not like you can't GM around it and tinker it, but man there are some flimsy motivations going on here and there.

How can people still hold such a stick in their asses over Rebels? Especially in comparison to the new Resistance show, it's positively baffling that anybody could think that cel-shaded up-chuck looks better than the culmination of the Ralph McQuarrie aesthetic.
>>
>>61989651
Yeah, the darkstryder series being possibly the worst example, which makes a lot of sense when you realize it was literally a rejected novel rebuilt into a series of extremely railroaded adventures, though it still ends up being excellent campaign source material
>>
>>61989633
It's a lot faster
>>
>>61989651
>Lords of the Expanse
Yeah, that's the one I meant with tapani boxed set. When you read it, it really feels like a mini A Song of ICe and fire style campaign area, and this was way before the books were big. Has potential, shame WEG got cancelled before they got release their followup to the area
>railroad
True, you can get around it though, and it does work fine if you have the players work directly for Rebel command, getting missions. Some are quite sandboxy though, Far orbit project has you play as the first Nebulon b frigate to rebel after Alderaans destruction, and you basicly have a chunk of the core/expanse region to raid at your interest
>>
>>61989703
It's super not. Rolling some d6, only one of which explodes, against a flat DC is worlds faster than constructing a fistful of multifarious dice for what should be a simple test, trying to remember what all the symbols mean, and then trying to figure out what to do with the often nonsensical advantage or threat the roll generated.

I'm the opposite. I disliked how Maul was still alive so close to A New Hope, I was okay with him living past Clone Wars if he'd been killed by Vader or something 5 years later but it felt wrong him being in the OT era like that as opposed the dark times which is roughly more around the time Solo and the Vader comics take place.

My point is despite feeling like he was milked in Rebels I liked his death at the hands of Obi-Wan. When Maul was resurrected in TCW I began to consider that comic canon and then they used it for Rebels so I was happy with that at least, I just wish it would have been sooner so Obi-Wan was more like Ewan and we got a little more of a fight before the stand-off where he finishes him.
>>
>>61990193
Yeah, for me everything Maul in Rebels was pointless until that Tatooine episode. I didn't like that Maul was reduced to some saturday morning cartoon bad guy for the ghost crew, it just made the universe feel small too, that Ezra would stumble across this legendary sith who just happens to be on Malachor.

Honestly just wanted Maul to survive Clone Wars, go into the criminal underworld for a few years and work in the shadows, have a few Inquisitors duel him with him killing them all, then have him duel Vader which forces him to flee Coruscant and he tracks down Obi-Wan in 15-10BBY, they duel on Tatooine and he gets killed. Didn't need all that Holocron/Malachor Rebels shit.
