It was ultimately simpler to just go with generic options; characters are mainly going to be concerned with their own ship, not how well drive X will function in NPC ship #17. The only place it might ...

I prefer a system in which parts have a specific cost, not a percentage, and a specific stat for example an engine with Space 6. Then if you put that part in a larger ship you'll end up with a lower e ...

So, mostly, it sounds like a backstory aspect rather than something requiring actual gaming rules to duplicate.

And as I said, if there are no rules in place to duplicate skill loss from lack of us ...

Well, with regard to the multi-shot grenade launcher, it could do a lot more work than a single shot auxiliary grenade launcher.

Also, you could rule that the special weapons teams grenadiers have ...

The problem is that the binary choice of Force Sensitive: Yes/No makes it rather hard to show the ebb and flow of the Force. It's either on or off. The only way it would work, IMO, is in combination ...

Yes, Londo was quite fun. I always thought his best scene was the poisoning of Lord Refa.

I usually find myself thinking of B5 in terms of crossover material. The Starfury, for example, would mak ...

There are interesting parallels between the Jedi Code and the Vorlon stance, as well. Much of the Code encompasses both self-knowledge (and self-control by extension), as well as recognizing one's pla ...

Having various species gain or lose Force sensitivity / psychic ability / whatever is not without precedent in the science fiction as a whole. The example that comes to mind is the Squats from Warham ...

See, that would also be a good philosophy to have as the backdrop to the Sith. Palpatine's actions make sense in such a context. Obviously, he's still evil, but at least his actions seem to stem fro ...

We have examples in the real world of savants and prodigies; Thrawn seems to fit that pattern well enough. In Outbound Flight (which chronologically Thrawn's first appearance in the EU) he has little ...
