So, as I mentioned above, I agree with the SWTC in that the WEG-listed crew size for the Death Star is far too low. However, strictly for gaming purposes, it doesn't really matter how badly overmatch ...

Of course you should make it what you see fit based primarily on what we see in the films.
Since the Technical Commentaries dovetails with the Rogue One book, I'm going to take that route

There is also the fact that, again per the Star Wars Technical Commentaries, the WEG-generated population numbers of the Death Star result in absurdly low population densities (something in the area o ...

The image of the cannon from ANH was where I got the idea of Laser and Turbolaser Batteries as common weaponry. The gun deck scenes in RotS were contributing factors, as well.

1). The bombers are fine, but free-fall bombs in space is just silly. Replace the bombs with lots and lots of proton torpedoes that fire straight down...

2). Make Holdo a better ...

Is anyone interested in me re-statting the Death Star? My initial impression was that it wasn't in service long enough to be a real factor insofar as actually needing game stats, but what with Rogue O ...

Just completed the project I mentioned above; all capital ship weapons now have a Rate of Fire included, none higher than 1.

In the radio drama Vader does track the Tantive IV, whether through the Force or maybe they just followed their hyperspace vector.
I’m aware. My point is that Leia should have had no way of knowing ...

Would you say that these comm/sensor rules would directly port over to non-starships. Take for instance a resource recon speeder. It has a Search range of 2km, would you set it up 500m/1km/2km/4km? ...
