If there's one thing that the community is doing well these days, is putting out professional looking D6 fanbooks.

I haven't had time to go over the content (as you probably well know, since I tried to stay involved in the project, but fell out from time constraints), but it looks marvelous.

Is there something wrong with the links? I tried clicking on them, and I end up going to the sign-in page of my Google account.

I had no trouble downloading it with the ebook link. I'm no expert on Google's stuff, but they are Google Drive links so you may have to be signed in to your Google account.

How can Chopper have brawling, brawling parry, melee combat, and melee parry? For that matter, how can any astromech have those skills?

Ezra: You have Relationship heading when you're describing his gear.

Watch the show? Not sure about the melee combat and melee parry. Seems like he was willing to attack using hth skills against both Ezra and Zed many times so that will cover the brawling end of things.

Yes I do. However, when I see brawling or melee skills for a droid, it's usually with a droid designed for combat. Or at the very least has arms or some sort of appendage that can be used for fighting.

Also for Ezra, shouldn't it be lightsaber repair/engineering? This goes for Kanan and the Inquisitor as well.

Zeb: Zeb has a softer side like when he sprung into extreme rage
when Kallus used a bo rifle in battle... Should it be a darker side?

Hera Syndulla: You have a typo in her stats. You have Sundulla instead of Syndulla.

Are Imperial Combat Drivers part of the Stormtrooper Corp, or are they part of the Army?

I am unsure, but I would probably place them as being part of the Imperial Army.

I understand what you are saying but let us remember that "Chopper" is a custom droid and not a standard model. Also, he is a character, not an "extra" or an NPC.

I have had a chance to look at the sheet I presented in the book. He does not have melee parry. He does have electroshock prod 4D. Not sure why I included it but melee combat is also 4D. I could easily see removing that though.

Looking at his Brawling and Brawling Parry lowering them but please keep in mind that several times during the series he has squared off versus adversaries (mainly Zeb and Ezra) in a pseudo-martial arts pose. This can be looked in several ways, he has some sort of "learned" HtH or he was attempting to Intimidate, which he does quite often.

Again, I think this is probably more to taste than anything. I could see dropping the skills to Brawling 3D and Brawling Parry to 3D+2. Of course if the GM wants he can just not allow Chopper to have them.

I chose not to give him Lightsaber Engineering because I felt it really did not make sense. Also, it appears during the show that Ezra is "led" by the
Force while constructing his lightsaber. Again, I think this is to flavor depending on the GM, but I felt it appropriate for one but not the other.

Quote:

I thought about this and decided no for a number of reasons. He never actively called upon the Dark Side. He lost his cool when he saw a weapon that had been used to kill so many of his people. Zeb is not Force Sensitive so it not under near as much scrutiny concerning his behavior.

The way I chose to look at it from a GM point of view, was that him losing his cool was dramatic flare directly related to his background. I didn't really see this is an opportunity to assess a Dark Side point. Probably yet another case of depending on when during the season the GM is playing and how he assesses DSP and the flavor of his game would be the deciding factors.

Thank you for the typo correction. We finding a number of those throughout the manuscript. We plan on collating the mistakes we and others find, fix them and release a Mk.II version. Probably give it 4-5 weeks to shake down would be my guess.

If you won't say Zeb has a darker side, then how about having a temper?

That is handled though roleplaying. Not everything requires a mechanic. Some things can he handled in a narrative way. The scene you suggest was a "big reveal" for that episode and was specific to the plot. You cannot point to multiple times in which Zeb reacts in that fashion and therefore it is not something requiring a mechanic for it.
