Sith manipulation never really got anywhere until Plagueis. It was a thousand year plan for a reason, like 90% of it was just hiding around and hoping you finally get someone who happens to be a Force Sensitive and also happens to have political/economic connections into your secret Sith order.

Everything else was the Republic being retarded. Its also mentioned in many materials that while this period had no galaxy-spanning war, it still had thousands of local conflicts that only the Empire ended. I mean both Legends and NuCanon have this: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Mandalorian_Excision so the 'Thousand Year Peaceful Republic' meme is just a meme.

To be fair, you're never going to have a 100% peaceful galaxy. That's a statistical impossibility given how large the place is and how many billions/trillions of people there are. Judging by how frequent galactic wars are the rest of the time, I figure that not having a galactic war for a thousand or more years is as close as you're going to get to a "peaceful" galaxy.

What I've gleaned, at least from the new stuff, is that the parts of the galaxy they control are largely pacified. The Empire is one big ass police state using cutting edge military overkill. They largely maintain the peace and security of the Empire, this wasn't just a meme from Palpatine. There's still plenty pirates and smugglers, of course, but they're typically minor enough headaches. The problem is that you exchange regional conflicts and petty fights between worlds with is one big ass police state using cutting edge military overkill. If you draw attention to yourself you'll likely get a blaster bolt in the face. If they want your land they'll arrest you and burn down your home.

OUTSIDE of Imperial territory there is plenty of conflict still and even encouraged by the Empire because that gives them opportunity to claim those systems, typically in the name of securing them from their conflicts.

>>62424403
I think there is a degree of hostility in that situation the Jedi would tolerate. They know they're only human. There's that time in nu-canon where Vos goes to the Dark Side, joins Dooku, and all he gets is a slap on the wrist and Obi-Wan as his parole officer, which is frankly just punishing Obi-Wan. He DID suffer a dead waifu, though, so maybe Yoda took that into consideration.

If Anakin had sprung out of the tent, maybe put down some of the warriors who charged him, but otherwise used his powers to pacify and disband the tribe I think he'd have been given a pass. Stabbing women and children in the face not so much. Jedi even loathe harming non-sentient animals, trained murder beasts in Geonosian arenas notwithstanding.

A key difference, though, is they sent Vos into a situation where he could be tempted. Anakin followed a Force vision to a place he knew he shouldn't go for reasons he shouldn't go, at least according to the Jedi.
>>
>>62424403
>Murdering an entire tribe of sentient beings is A Bad Thing.

Just because they're sentient doesn't mean their existence is worthwhile. There's lots of groups and tribes that everyone would be better off if all of them were wiped out. Certainly the Tusken Raiders fall under that category, much like ______haha you thought I was going to give an IRL answer like "Americans" or "the Dutch"___
>>
>>62424544
>pacify and disband
That's asking too much from the Force at movie power levels from someone with only Jedi Knight-tier experience. Hell, even in novels and vidya, you don't often see Jedi simply telepathing people into docility. He could have spared noncombatants like the women, the surrendering, and children but at the very least, a whole lot of male Tuskens were going to take up arms anyway and get chopped as a result.

Pretty much this. Annie killing tusken raiders is pretty justified.
Annie killing tusken infants and non-combatants, not so much. And it's that bit that steers it far further out of "poorly handled, but more than understandable" to "the fuck man"
>>
>>62424821
They're Tuskens. Wave your arms at them and shout, "WOOBA WOOBA WOOBA!" and they get the fuck out of there. Sure they'll be back and in greater numbers but only because Tuskens love showing off. "Hey man, you gotta see this freaky thing! I pissed my fucking robes!"

The funny thing is if he'd broken apart the tribe sure they'd eventually reform but possibly not all of them. They might even think that territory was cursed or some shit. When he wiped them out, all of them, he just pissed off the other tribes in the area and they came down harder on the moisture farmers out of vengeance.

Anakin didn't need his lightsaber, he needed to forge the sword of friendship so he could forgive the shit out of them.
>>
What wasn’t justified was coming back later and spending a whole day just slaughtering Tuskans as Darth Vader. He already killed the tribe, he didn’t need to do it for fun.
>>
>>62424962
>Pretty much this. Annie killing tusken raiders is pretty justified.
It's not like the Jedi wouldn't be upset at him if they'd learned about it because Anakin started the fight. But I think they would have understood. They'd want him to train harder and meditate on his failures. Probably. I mean he was a Padawan so maybe it could jeopardize his chances of making Knight? You know Mace would be pushing for that.

If Sidious is going to send him back to goddamn Tatooine to talk with Hutts and get sand in his respirator he's damn well going to gut some Tuskens. That's just therapy for him. Plus they wound up creating a whole cult around the death god with the red sword.

Ignoring the fact Abeloth is one of the worst scifi characters ever written in general, and probably the worst of Star Wars, I recall it was a plot point that she feared Sidious, so I imagine he'd have no trouble with her, though a clone/phantom Sidious (IE weaker) may be a different story.

This is a general question about Tuskens, did Jabba and other crime lords ever raid against them as the Tuskens pose a threat to their income (ie less protection kickbacks)
>>

>>62426057
Yes, but mostly for sport rather than any tactical considerations. If the Tuskens become too bothersome of course they'd take that into hand. As the comic here seems to indicate >>62424930 and judging from the skiff they seem to be part of the general problem on Tatooine. They love shooting up bantha the Tuskens rely on, the Tuskens in turn have to raid the farms and maybe some of the settlements, who in turn seek retribution on the Tuskens. A tidy little cycle of violence. Of course Jabba's thugs are hardly the only source of such problems. Droughts are especially hard and make for desperate people on all sides. But they are the primary source feeding the cycle out of sheer dumb brutality. You think that would be the Tuskens job. They raid more for necessity and because they've grown to fear and hate anything that isn't their own.
>>
>>62426327
It should be noted that the page posted is from another comic. After the loss of the Death Star the Emperor sends Vader to Tatooine to negotiate with the Hutts for supplies to increase the Imperial fleets. Jabba's idea of celebrating afterward is having his men shoot the shit out of bantha herds, then swing by the sarlaac for some happy fun time pleading, groveling, and then screaming. They don't even claim the bantha to feed Jabba's fat ass, they leave the carcasses to the desert so the sand can strip the bones clean.
>>
>>62426327
>>62426057
In the EU Jabba would rile up the Tuskens to sell arms to the settlers who get raided, and also IIRC somehow sold through intermediaries to the tuskens themselves.
>>
>>62426327
NuCanon comics are a cringe gift that keeps on giving.
>>
>>62426720
To be fair that looks about right for a Jabba mook.
>>
>>62426057
>>62426622
NU makes it stupid (not surprising) but EU had it where Jabba both hated but relied on the Tuskens. He'd stir them up so they'd do raids and he'd then turn around and sell arms to settlers, sometimes trading with Tuskens themselves, but very rarely. On the other hand, they were bloodthirsty, and he was sniped at on his Barge several times.
>>
>>62426622
That feels stupid to me if only because Jabba would have no reason to care about increasing the weaponry on either side as what little he could make selling guns in turn makes it harder for his thugs to knock over farms later to keep hm supplied with water to moisten the dry skin of his massive ass.
>>
What are some interesting planets that haven’t been explored in the movies or in the more popular books.
>>
>>62426782
He sold the farmers really old shitty guns that were not suitable for the dust and grit so they'd break down a lot.
>>
>>62426803
Still silly. If their guns are shitty they'll just buy guns from settlements where any enterprising person, say a Watto, would be happy to either sell weapons or the means to improve what they have, for a price. Assuming of course that sheer necessity in the harsh and hostile sands of Tatooine didn't leave farmers learning how to maintain and upgrade the weapons themselves since they rely on them.
>>
>>62426846
They last the season where the Tuskens are getting feisty and by the time the extra ones break down the tuskens have calmed down so they only need the handful of reliable guns instead of the extra arsenals.

In the Ki-adi-mundi comic it was basically how the Hutts disposed of garbage inventory.
>>
>>62426846
>>62426803
It'd be easier for Jabba to just let the sand people increase in numbers until their population requires mass raiding THEN sell his thugs out as exterminators. They go in, wipe out the tuskens and oh boy would you look at who gets to keep all the swag the tuskens were stealing? Why I do believe it's Jabba the Hutt!

Far easier, gets him some good will, ensures that the farmers think they need Jabba and his good graces to survive, and has a much greater reward.
>>
>>62426846
Thats assuming Jabba doesnt crack down on them. Unless the Black Sun or another group backs an arms dealer, a small timer trying to under cut the hutts might end up in the sarlaacc pit
>>
>>62426913
He'd either get kickbacks from them or, you know, they'd sell that shit under the table instead of openly because most businesses on Tatooine are already shady as fuck.

It's apparently hard to get even mediocre guns out to the rim, and I seem to be mistaken about them being totally shit.

I coulda sworn somewhere else in the comic they mention it was a way to squeeze one last bit of profit out of their oldest guns.

Also Jabba does assemble a skiff flotilla later in the comic.

I don't really see the problem with the time travel. The Cosmic Force is beyond the normal bounds of Time and Space, where the past, present, and future all exist as one. Someone within the realm of the Cosmic Force could indeed interact beyond the normal boundaries. It's pointed out why you shouldn't do it, and how it could be abused, so they destroy at least that one path to reaching the place where you could meddle with time.

It just so happens that Dave Filoni used the moment as an excuse to save his precious orange wiafu, and I can respect that. But time travel being possible? There will always be aspects of the Force which, while you could fuck with them you just shouldn't. This is one of those. Unless you're saving the one you love from death. My acceptance of that is probably mostly the irony that it was done against Vader. The one thing Anakin wanted more than anything else yet he'll never have. Boom.

It helps, perhaps, that this was not the first time Ahsoka was spared from death, something that was considered impossible. For a time it depended on whether you believed Mortis was just a vision or not, in which case the death would not have been real. Now that they've solidified it as actual events we're left with Ahsoka being saved and both times by the same entity, one of the Force dwellers within Mortis. Beyond this Ahsoka's resurrection doesn't really play into the resolution of the show. She merely survives and returns to the point at which she would have died, then shows up again at the end for ambiguous space adventures with Sabine, potentially in the Lesbian Sector.

As for Dave it isn't like he needed time travel to save Ahsoka. We'd already seen Vader survived the same explosion and Ahsoka appeared in that same episode. I'll go one step further and suggest that Ahsoka never really died in that fight. What COULD have happened is the explosion spoiled the duel as previously suspected but rather the convor Morai guided Ezra to that gateway in order to temporarily pull Ahsoka out of her temporal sequence. The point was that it was Ahsoka who convinced Ezra both not to fuck with time and of the dangers of letting the Empire discover the place, and when they part Ahsoka merely steps back into sequence. Ezra pulls her through the mirror because he assumed she was going to die, but it could be argued at least that this was not certain. Vader swung at her but Ezra had already grabbed her so we don't know how, or if, she'd have reacted.

It's a box set with the 1st Edition Core Book and Sourcebook. It's supposed to be a collectors item or some bullshit, but I wanna use this thing. I saw another box set like this at Barnes and Noble, so I guess it's anywhere you can find collectable books.

>Is it just me or do a lot of the faces look like they're traced or edited from photos?

Buddy, I can count on one hand the number of Star Wars comics I've brought in the last decade that weren't heavily traced from pictures of Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford. At this point it's tradition.

>it was a forboding indication of the Ferngully Syndrome that plagued Rebels with overpowered organic critters.
Lucas had a certain something for super powered creatures, some sentient and most not, some Force powered and some not. The creatures in the geonosis arena, the sarlacc, the asteroid worm, even to an extent the wampa (deleted scenes of dragging stormtroopers to its icy space cave thanks to Threepio trolling). In many ways animal friends became Prequel Obi-Wan's thing, much as it later became Ezra's (after some initial difficulties connecting with/opening himself up to other beings via the Force). Force empowered creatures are naturally far rarer but of course have happened. The weird magic fairy frog who helped Threepio and Artoo during TCWs, the Force fueled fish monster the Night Sisters used to power their magicks. Certain species that seem to produce an inordinate amount of Force users like the Bardottans (their limits in the Force to visions being either biological or philosophical, I don't think it was ever specified). Even entire worlds strong in the Force. Dagobah for one but far more crazy examples like the Force Planet Yoda met the Force Priestesses on. Then we have more abstract crazy shit like the Family on Mortis.

Most of these had much smaller parts to play in their stories than the Force wolves or the hyperspace whales. They still aren't wholly out of place within Star Wars, by far. I mean the bor gullet, rathtars, the rancor, gundarks. The space jellyfish in the 2016 Han Solo comic miniseries to the critters in his, ha, solo movie. Speaking of the Solo miniseries I'm reminded of that ancient stargate where an entire species who fled to extradimensional whateverspace emerged with their weird steampunk airships to kick the Empire's ass. Weird times.

Mind you being used as a table is probably one of the least demeaning things he's had to endure.
Most Zab's seem to die from fighting each other, witch snu-snu + fighting snu-snu, stabbed by space wizards and being apprenticed to galactic level dickbags that use them as canon fodder, just sort of saying, personal dignity probably falls somewhere way under self preservation and occupational health and safety on the list of "things to do today" as a Zabrak.

Probably not, though it's hard to say. This is still early in Vader's career but after the death of Koth they decide the rest of the Jedi are too well hidden and decide to wait for any signs of them. I think most of the Council including ex-members as the roster changed between Prequel movies have been accounted for but can't be certain. Vos is still unaccounted for, I think, as is Barriss though maybe she doesn't count since she was arrested and kicked out of the Jedi before Order 66. Definitely not a member of the Inquisitors we've seen so probably executed.

After Koth the Inquisitors are retasked to Project Harvester, namely collecting Force Sensitive babies. Koth's kid wound up one of the "lucky" brats, so there's another horn head suffering.

>>62431962
I think she's been confirmed Vader'd in the new material based on one of her deaths scripted for ROTS. She's appeared in a couple holocrons so she at least survived long enough to warn about Order 66. Not quite the death of being stabbed while meditating and unaware of the danger.

At least he's dead now. Lando finally killed him along with a Sithload of other dark artifacts.

I wonder what he is. Force imprint? They've dabbled with those kinds of non-Force Ghost ghosts before. Maybe something closer to Immortal Rur, some kind of program built into the mask that saw whatever Momin did and basically "learned" to be him? The mind control aspect seems Force related but could be technologically duplicated.

Still what kind of Sith is so heretical even other Sith refuse to speak of him?
>>
>>62432022
True about Shaak Ti. I attempted to recall any surviving Council members in either timeline that lasted as long as Yoda and Obi-Wan.
Was Luminara killed outright during Order 66 or was she captured and later executed like Rebels implied?
>>
>>62432546
I believe she was shown getting shot down in the main Order 66 scene in Episode 3
>>
>>62432569
No not Luminara

Luminara was on Kashyyyk with Yoda
>>
>>62432022
I realize most Jedi hid, since that was the only option especially with the biggest army in the galaxy now hunting them down as well as their strongest member. But I do wonder, were there any Jedi that started an armed resistance on a loyal world? Any that sought and fought Vader in a futile attempt to stop him?
>>
>>62432896
That's basically just Kanan/Ahsoka, isn't it?
>>
>>62432896
Kota.
>>
>>62432896
Yes. They mostly died.
>>
>>62432896
There was one Jedi who threw his lot in with an army of Seppies following Order 66 from the old Dark Horse comics. Others mentioned Kota who disappeared in a space woods before he started his private war with the Empire. Most jedi became hermits and lived in isolation. Although, I'm not sure where Krukh hid. That guy survived fucking everything.
>>
>>62432896
Rahm Kota tried to start his own party but his militia got wrecked. Echuu Shen Jon joined the Rebellion outright after being found by Leia and died dueling Vader.
>>
>>62432914
No? Kanan became a scruffy nerf herder until circumstances paired him up with Hera. Even then he didn't take up his lightsaber again until much later, possibly when he finally used it in the first few episodes of Rebels.

In the new Vader comics there's a Jedi with his own followers who is more or less raising ruckus on Dac with the Mon Cala. It doesn't end well for him, his followers, the Mon Cala, King Lee Char - but at least he was correct that eventually the Mon Cala would be instrumental in defeating the Empire. I think one of his people survived, some chick. Were they setting her up for something or do I just misremember it?
>>
>>62433211
It's funny how even after joining with Phoenix Squadron Kanan didn't want anything to do with a larger rebellion. He just liked going from place to place helping whoever they could and pissing in the Empire's cornflakes on small scales. Never join a cause, it'll just get you killed.

>>62428061
Watching that vid I don't know about Ahosoka potentially surviving without Ezra's interference (I guess she could have still dodged or blocked that downward stroke of his) but it's interesting that her taking the floor out from under him may have been what saved his life assuming the distance and stone walls helped protect him from the temple's explosion. Bit ironic if true.
>>
>>62433408
To be fair, if one of my first impressions of the Rebel Alliance was Phoenix Squadron, I wouldn't have much faith in a larger rebellion, either.
>>
aww ye
>>
>>62433441
It's pre-Alliance by a couple of seasons, plus their worst defeat early on was getting Vader'd. I'm still kind of pissed how fast that Pelta-Class was destroyed. The eventual Imperial light carrier was a fairly decent replacement but it didn't last either. Apparently the Rebellion stole another one later on since it showed up in the comics.
>>
Just a heads up, since I've been following this on Amazon for a while. A few months ago it went from $100 down to $60, and now it's down to $50. I've really wanted a legit looking Sith Holocron to set down in the middle of my table when my group plays F&D, because I'm pretty autistic, so I figure $50 isn't too bad to make that happen. Just a heads up to the cool people ITT. I know the book isn't canon, but the Holocron seems cool as fuck.

It's a shame the Jedi Path isn't a Jedi Holocron, I would've bought that one too.

Tell them that you're going to run an exciting Star Wars war story with their Jedi characters leading victorious armies into battle and then having to fight off Dark Jedi who've come to kill them via Order 66. Play up the fact that they will be needed as heroes for the Resistance against the Empire.

Then, mid-"victorious battle", have Order 66 happen THEN, and kill off all of their characters, ideally with sudden shots to the back and with no chance to react at all, no later than an hour into the game.

Congrats. ___You can now call yourself a great Star Wars storyteller because you have subverted their expectations__

Ok, so
I'm a beginner GM (I've lead a single short campain so far in a weird japanese rpg system I won't dwell on) and I want to lead a Star Wars game. I already have the support of my usual GM (he wants to play too) and my playgroup and have a ton of ideas for the campain (4 BBY on the outer rims, 6-movie canon with things from legends I like) and want to start setting it up...

But I don't know which system to use. While d20 is the dice we're most used to, thanks to my research I already wrote out the WOTC products as they're supposedly subpar. I am torn between the FFS edge of the empire and the d6 system. The FFG system is pretty nice from what I hear but the dedicated dice and artificial splitting of the rulebook to sell it thrice just put me and my friends off greatly. The Dice especially make my playgroup want to write off this one as well. On the other hand I've heard good stuff about the d6 system, but it is ancient and simple, and I fear it to be simplistic.

RN I am skewing towards the d6 system, but it changes back and forth from day to day as I think about them both. Just wanted to ask the people here for their opinions on the two.

These books (counting the Imperial, Jedi, and Rebel ones as well) were kind of a let down. They have some neat information in them, but the random scribblings by other characters just seemed really silly.

>>
>>62436002
Well yeah, Imperials are a bunch of losers. I don't know why there's so much love for them when they're the bad guys, and no amount of mental gymnastics will change that.

Don't forget that Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a legitimate thing.

>https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takotsubo_cardiomyopathy

>This weakening may be triggered by emotional stress, such as the death of a loved one, a break-up, rejection from a partner or constant anxiety. This leads to one of the common names, broken heart syndrome.[4] Stress cardiomyopathy is now a well-recognized cause of acute heart failure, lethal ventricular arrhythmias, and ventricular rupture.[5]

I think Jabiim was the first battle the republic outright lost during the Clone Wars, and badly at that. I kind of see that and Geonosis as being what trimmed off a lot of the 'old-school' Jedi masters, the ones who'd come of age pre-TPM.

There's also Felucia, which by all accounts was such a quagmire that the Republic fought over it for pretty much the entire war without making much of a headway.

Vader was a perfect storm made from Anakin's emotional minefield, the rigid Jedi system that couldn't handle it, and Sidious's exploitation of every weak point.

I thought Padmé died because Anakin, or Sidious, used Plageuis' knowledge to sustain Anakin's life. It was part of that ironic Dark Side power, where in Anakin's quest to save her life, he inadvertedly used it to save himself.

You can skip buying dice for FFG if you run an app. FFG sells one, but I much prefer the free "RPG Dice Roller"; every Android device I own has it, so they can lay around on the table (see picture).

If you do FFG, I suggest starting with one of the starter adventures, because I guess they are written to walk you through the system's mechanics, including how awesomely entertaining and player-empowering the weird dice system can be.

The "buying three game systems" thing only applies if you choose to play three games at once. Each of the three is intended to run independently, it's just that most groups have people who want to pull stuff from the whole setting. Even if you do that, you can pull some simple stuff from the other product lines without needing a duplicate core book.

Edge of the Empire and Age of Rebellion both have minimal Force rules for characters like OT-period Luke... if you have a PC progress beyond that, you can find more Force powers from Force and Destiny without buying the product line.

EoE and AoR both cover the bases well for character types, though I think EoE is a little better fit for what most veteran gamers think of as "Adventurer PCs".

Wild Space. The Unknown Regions might be the "Here Be Dragons" of the setting, and they like to play up the Outer Rim as being the Wild West, but it's really Wild Space, out past the Outer Rim, at the edge of the galaxy, that's truly lawless.

As far as those with lore to work off of, the Tapani Sector is pretty interesting, though maybe a little too far into the "space feudalism" area for some people. I'm also a fan of the Tion Hegemony and the Tion Cluster in general, but the information is a tad sparse; there's enough to connect some dots, though.

D6 is everything you'd want. The two things that are a little dated about it are how character creation is a little rough (it pretty much assumes that you're going to use a premade template and makes it rather hard to make a character completely from scratch) and Force-users can quickly overpower everything if they're smart enough to take the Control powers that enhance their ability to do other things. I greatly prefer it to the FFG systems with their truly awful dice and their pseudo-narrative system where almost everything is a mixed success or a mixed failure, even when that makes no sense.

>>62437834
Word of advice, though: if you do choose the FFG system, don't do the thing every single GM does and smash all three games together into one just because you can. First off, if you do that you can easily take the best talents more times than you were supposed to by multiclassing between games and create a broken character. Second, the narrative systems and intended shapes and tones of the different games' campaigns are totally different. Even if you do decide to allow material for more than one game, pick a "primary" game and use the Obligation/Duty/Morality system from that game only.

The template character creation is one of the things I hated about D6. I'll admit that FFG hasn't moved 100% away from that (not until Genesys, at least), but it's better, especially with "multiclassing" as you advance.

Absolutely agree about the dangers of stacking ranked talents between two product lines. Also have to agree about choosing Obligation or Duty or Morality. One of these days I'll put some more work into "The Force as Obligation"...

I think one of the strengths of FFG is that you can actually let characters play with the Force without them being completely broken; the system is built to allow them to be powerful, but only by spending boatloads of XP... which can make a non-Force character really tough, too.

I think the narrative dice of FFG is it's strongest point. If you hate that part, avoid FFG like the plague; if not, play with it enough to get fluent then have fun.

Both systems are built on the assumption that people just DO things without having to be formally trained in every task, which is much more heroic than a D20 system. You should be able to have a fun game with either; we all just have our preferences.

I couldn't say; I migrated directly from DND3.5/Pathfinder.

FFG players, feedback? Written as an attachment rather than a cybernetic because I see cybernetics as attachments for characters.

REMEDIAL COGNIPROCESSOR

Designed to bring the cognitive faculties of the simplest droids closer to that of typical organics and extend their utility, this processor module can provide considerable benefit to droids of even average intellect when carefully integrated into the network comprising their “droid brain” by a skilled tech. Base Modifiers: +1 Intellect (max 2) Modification Options: follow all usual rules of modding costs and increasing Difficulties. Special Mod 1: If the host droid is a Minion, it becomes a Rival while the attachment is installed. If it possessed any Group Skills as a minion, it now has 1 rank in each of those skills. Special Mod 2: Gain a second rank in the Group Skills gained through Special Mod 1. Special Mod 3: If the host droid possessed no Group Skills, choose one General or Knowledge skill; the droid gains 2 ranks in that skill. (should Combat skill be an option?) Hard Points Required (How many cybernetic implants this counts as): 1 Price: low end 500Cr, high end 1500Cr (based on the costs of the kinds of droids these would be used on, and the change in utility gained).

I wrote this up to address to poor utility of minion droids. The potential abuse would be when it's applied to combat, when groups of cheap rivals would get dramatically more attacks each round than they did as minions.

This is envisioned as something that Tech characters would homebrew, rather than something that's available on the open market, and was driven by the lack of useful low end droids in the crafting rules.

I would like to write the base affect as: "When installed in a droid with an Intellect of 1, raises Intellect to 2", but you have silliness like Pit Droids being written as Intellect 1 (dumber than an automated holocamera), despite multiple TCW instances of them being smart enough to converse...

>It does the opposite, though. It increases the GM's burden by forcing him to come up with narrative justifications for unexpected die results on checks. Sometimes this is easy, yeah, but it can often be difficult.

You can rely on the unexpected dice outcomes to add depth to the action and events happening in-session, and not have to do as much prep work to create that level of detail (some of which will usually be wasted unless you railroad players through everything you've prepared). Also, players should be helping interpret those results, even brainstorming suggestions for results that are "GM's choice", like THREAT and DESPAIR on player rolls.

It uses different mental muscles which take developing, and may not be a good match for a given group, but it's essentially a shift from a GM bearing the burden of creating every detail of the world, to a collaboration with the players.

I won't say it's better, but my group prefers it.

It's a really backwater region with the singular exception of sienar HQ, so any fleet there would most likely be launching minor raids on commerce/supply lines and isolated military targets (like say the roving customs patrols the imps use in low-end sectors)
So I'd say a couple Corvettes, probably a mix of CR-90s and DP-20s mostly, though this is also exactly the sort of place the rebs would use various shitty/old/oddball ships that they wouldn't to use in higher intensity regions.
For heavier stuff, you'd be looking at two or three frigates, neb-Bs or Peltas or oddballs or possibly even a CIS leftover. At the upper limit you'd see a single old light cruiser being used as much if not more as a base and support/resupply boat as it is as a combatant vessel

Fucking nothing, a handful of freighters, maybe a gallofree or two, a stolen imperial ship if they are lucky, and a couple of gunships or corvettes.

That's the issue with looking at a time period before endor. Everything post yavin is going to be a small number of similar ships, or nothing but locals.

Not necessarily.
The rebel fleet increased *massively* in size in the first few months after yavin, and not all small ships either

Well... At least it has the cross-bar that was missing from the 70.

The average post-9/11 PFC can't even handle their dip, yellow jackets and red bull without going Full-Carl.
The last thing anyone needs is a half-dozen retarded cock-fondlers, already fucked-in-half with the trots and DTs getting their hands on speed.

But it is only a backwater, and as long as you stay away from the Sienar routes they wouldn't need any big guns to do what they gotta do. I'd say a Neb-B as a command ship, a couple Quasars and a small mix of DP20s and CR90s.

Even if that was the case, the vast majority of Rebel naval assets will be tied up at Yavin IV, Kli'aar, Pinoora, or the Vallusk Cluster to assist in the Yavin evacuation.
