PostForum: Gamemasters   Posted: Mon Apr 06, 2020 1:44 am   Subject: Starship piloting
There's a passage in Tom Wolfe's The Right Stuff where he describes how the test pilots at Edwards would routinely wreck cars out on the back roads of the Mojave Desert, with the author laying a part ...

I can see Grimace's POV if one adheres to the WEG version of the SWU, in which missiles and torpedoes are just heavy rockets designed to inflict a lot of damage against larger targets. My version, how ...

I don't think I know how to drive a semi. I imagine it is nothing like driving the U-Haul truck I drove last time I moved.
There are some similarities: size, for one thing. But ultimately, a straight ...

I did not say get to drive, I say knows how to.
I drive a truck for a living. I can assure you there are drastic differences in operation, in spite of the similarities. It took me a month of full ti ...

I feel starship only sounds more appropriate for the setting because it has "Star" in the name and most spaceships shown in the films have hyperdrives and thus qualify as starships.
You're ...

Throwing my two cents in, I like the idea of melee skill covering both attack and defense.
Speaking from 21 years of historical swordsmanship, I can tell you that you learn both offense and defense. ...

I'm okay with the lightsaber being relatively... well, if not mundane, than at least to have most of the focus shifted onto the wielder (and, to a lesser degree, the builder). To my way of thinking, t ...

But would he be as skillful if he jumpped into say a F16, or a Cessna?
Things don't appear to work that way in the SWU, else Luke wouldn't be able to jump from a Skyhopper into a front-line starfight ...
