This is essentially what I have argued for for quite a while: the tactics skill providing bonuses rather than "information."

The whole point of superior tactics is to use your forces to t ...

Every lightsaber battle in the films is decided by the first successful hit.

I like what I think is 1e best, but not even sure about that. I've just written up a draft of al 7 forms that I can s ...

I would say no. You can't prepare or take your time on reaction skills.
Okay, but is that merely a repetition of WEG's rules or because allowing characters to prepare for an attack they know is comi ...

Oh, I most certainly agree.

I take the position that in general, shooting anti-starship weapons at characters should not be "allowed" (in the same way as you describe by applying modifier ...

No, that's what garhkal is saying. Your arguments mak ...

I went back and watched the scene to refresh my memory before my previous comment, and I just watched it again. The problem is that the pattern of fire doesn't match with the rapid-fire vwip-vwip-v ...

I pursued a path not entirely unlike this at one point. Obviously, I was using a system that had already deviated in other ways from RAW but you might find some of it useful.
