  1. I have a player who wants their powers to be latent to him, but acting independently on their own as a imagined being that isn't always an ally. In this case the powers are ESP and Telepathy thus explains how the figment can see things out of the LOS of the player. This figment cannot physically interact with anything and can only use the powers that it embodies. I've had two thoughts on the matter. One is some form of modified Sidekick due to the independent nature. The second is a modifier on the powers themselves. Do you guys have an opinion or better way of implementing this concept? Thanks For Reading and Responding.
  2. Thanks for your input Grimace. I agree about the female society, remember when Hapse was special? It seems like a lot of the races want to be 'different' so they just go with gender reversal. What they could be doing is looking at what society they resemble then figure out spins on that factoring in environment and biology. I know I'll have to come up with my own spin on things, however since many brains are better than one I was figuring a grand discussion that would bear fruit for myself and others. While I hope others chime in, if they don't I'll just be limited to my own resources.
  3. Hello, I've been searching for insight into the Zeltron species, but I've found little more than carbine copies of the wookiepedia article. (here's were the "bit more" than wookiepedia is from: http://www.myth-weavers.com/showthread.php?t=123856 No idea as to it's accuracy nor do I agree with all as stated) I'm running a game that has a Zeltron (NPC) in it, she's a Jedi battle master (NJO) and she feeds off of confidence in battle (I don't want to get too far into her character unless you guys are interested). Eventually I will be involving the PCs with her family and perhaps the home world and I'm trying to figure out strange customs or quirks that would be off putting along with rule of conduct. For example is the instance of being upset against a law or while it might not be law is there an action that has to be taken? Considering the empathic nature of the race it could be considered disorderly to bombard the area with such emotions. Another instance would be a kid drinking an inebriating beverage, considering their society and biology I would think that would be allowed, but might make "civilized" people upset. The safety of the child would probably be enforced by any nearby Zeltron any distress and it would be noticed. Current thoughts on culture\society. -Intentional use of emotion to disrupt is equivalent to disturbing the peace. -Age of maturity is probably loosely defined at around the onset of puberty. -The crime rate would be low, not zero, due to the empathic nature of the Zeltron. Most likely there would be distress on ether the victim or the criminal and that would raise attention. -There are sects of Zeltron that embody different aspect of things, the martial, art, scholarly things, etc. -I'm uncertain as to the extent of warrior pursuits, though there is dialog stating that they can fight, so is there an armed forces that just isn't used? -From the above site reference it states that the males are subjugated, I can't think of a reason for this. Does it make sense to anyone else? Clearly I have a start of my own, but expanding my knowledge and making the race more fleshed out I think would help in the RP experience. Thanks For Reading, Responding and contributing to my and our research\growth of the partying species!
  4. Hello I'm working on a game world using eastern lore and I've decided to use D6 Powers (not R&E; though I've heard it's good). Now here are some questions: In trying to duplicate the powers of a Kitsune (Fox spirit) Powers does most of it. Now I'm trying to reproduce the ability of strong kitsune to make pocket dimensions. I've thought about making an ability using Spacial Warp and Dimension shift as a basis; maybe having the roll of the power dictate the size and material types within. Has anyone already tackled this problem? The other question I have is more opinionated, this world is based off of the Inuyasha Anime and I've been thinking about how to tackle the Shinto/Buddhist powers of the Miko. My current thought is to make a Manipulation type ability to cover basic to intermediate effects while using the other abilities for the more advanced things. the Other option is to use the D6 Fantasy Magic. Is it a good idea to mix the two? While I think I'm able to handle other aspects with the system I am open to your thoughts about how to simulate other eastern aspects with the system or ideas in general. Thank You for Reading
  5. Thanks Finals for my term have taken up a bit of my time I'll definitely have time Tuesday to go over every thing. From my skim though it looks good. Sorry for the wait.
  6. The racial restrictions are only those based on the time period and even then with a good background can be circumvented. For Example Barabels haven't been discovered by the republic yet, however there are independent people and unsavory organizations around the area so it is not outside the realm of possibility that maybe a ship landed and took on a native as a slave or stowaway. In terms of droids, yes it's possible to be a droid character, though other beings might not acknowledge your sentience.
  7. Second Edition Revised with draws from other D6 Sources, like Disadvantages and Advantages. The details may be found in "House Rules and Extra Stuff". To be more precise on the time it's the last years of the Exar Kun Sith War and blaster technology is rare, *3 price with slugthrowers and pulse wave weapons being more common. The location information can be fount in Syria Sector and Factions. Additionally I'm merging the Parries and using the Martial Arts Expanded (download link- http://www.mediafire.com/?8r5tx2gmmyx) and a Lightsaber Form rule set similar to martial Arts. A background explanation will be needed for some Martial Arts, like Shadow Hand. Some Maneuvers will require a teacher or someone to train with. The Character creation limits are usually (race dependent) 18D Attributes and 7D skills, disadvantages will ether get you more dice or allow you to buy Advantages of equivalent level. Allies and Enemies are gained through background and play, they are not worth disad/adv points. Have fun
  8. Sure, just send me a character/background and lets hash out something. @Obi: Sorry for this long, weird delay, but ya can come on back too if ya want. Once we get you settled in we can kick start this thing again. Thanks for your interest and keep in mind the time frame. As stated elsewhere a I'm a sucker for a good background. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Welcome and, again, lets get the ball rolling again!
  9. -Gyn & Dante- Sash Tei jerked and shot her weapon, the projectile going through the open door. Her subordinates slowly went for their weapons. Buroc took a few seconds then moved into the room heading for the chest. The Bothan was simply shoved by the Trandoshian into the parasteel window before he started rifling. The other two take a few more precious second to decide who'll cover the door and the chest. A look of anger formed on Sash's face, "Oh this is terrific." she spared a glance to the Weequay, Gran and Bothan, "What is it you want?"
  10. -Gyn- The woman jumps to the side dodging the first blow. She wasn't prepared for the second attack and was propelled backwards and landed onto the luxury bed. Wincing the human sat up, "Fortunately for you I'm in no condition to kill you off. But the doesn't mean I can't still win!" Sash Tei brought out a small slugthrower and pointed it at the martial magician. Beyond the wounded woman and her followers, through the transparasteel window from the small rock field and broken moon came swarms of specks swiftly forming into star-fighters speeding towards the Denel. -Denel Bridge- "Welcome to the Sweet Zone Rouge Blade." said Captain Rastil Keed's voice crackled over the com, "Now we will start with our negotiations." A smile reformed on Rastil's face, "Now I thought we had already agreed to terms. BUt that's ok, tell me Keed. Do you know what is so great about the Sweet Zone." After a few moments of silence he continued, "This place is occupied by some friends of mine." "You've betrayed me." "Just before you betrayed me." Alarms went off as shields and weapons were brought up.
  11. -Gyn- Sash Tei barely realized that the magician had moved, she tried to twist around to face him, but was hit in the back of the neck. She stumbled haphazardly and dropped to a knee. "What are you doing, get him." she commanded of her group. Her companions hesitated. The Bothan spoke, "Sash,we should get out of here." "Useless!", Tei took a step, swinging a knife from her sheath. The blade deflected off her target. "You don't feel that?"
  12. -Gyn- An asteroid field came into view through the window with the backdrop of a larger, blasted, object. The human woman made a gesture towards the Gran and then the Weequey to do something to the 'magician'. However both took a subtle step back. "Useless..." the woman slowly took a few steps towards Gyn, "I'm afraid you don't know whom you are dealing with. I am the Butcher of Teta, the Ghost of Kashyyyk, Sash Tei!" Tei grabs for the crystal. As she made the attempt a sharp sense of danger erupts through Gyn's mind. (Roll Dex or brawling to resist her grab) -Dante- Within was a living area adorned with symbol tapestries and contained a couch set near a holo-entertainmnet system with a kitchen area in the corner along with a deactivated droid auto-chef. The droid looks as if it suffered some kind of malfunction with its arms frozen in a bizarre manner and it only had one of it's optical sensors glowing, an expanded restraining bolt is pinned to its metallic chest. There are four doors in immediate view. One is just to the left after the entry way. The second on the wall within the kitchen area. Another on the same wall, but outside the kitchen zone. The Final one is across from the kitchen zone designed to be less noticeable with a color scheme similar to the sand brown walls under the tapestries, though the door toggle is not dulled. The muffled words "Sash Tei" reached Dante's ears from one of the rooms near the kitchen area. Buroc agitatedly flipped his tongue out after seeing the condition of the kitchen droid.
  13. -Dante- The card panel opened easily unveiling a mesh of circuitry and wires that looked like they had been partially stripped and rewired a few times. Thinking for a moment the gunman traced where previous connections had been made and recreated the previous work with a show of sparks. The door made a clicking noise and opened a few inches, but the card reader was toasty. ((Security 3+4=7))
  14. -Gyn- The Gran's eye stalks blink while the weequay and human turned to face the uninvited guest with hands going to now visible holsters. The Bothan seemed too preoccupied by the amulet in his hand to notice. The weequay responded first, "We should gun him." The human female ignored her companion's remark and just smirked, "Just accomplishing today's mission, if you're after something specific take it. We are aren't snobbish thieves." The Bothan's item of preoccupation began to stir and move towards the new arrival as if by some magnetic force. he futilely tried to hold on as it's silver and gold chain slipped through his fingers. The human woman noticed as it entered her periphery, her eyes widening slightly. She took a step and reached out to obtain the floating jewelry, her last two droid fingers on an otherwise human hand almost grabbed it. The Entu amulet swerved away to continue to the apparently empowered guest. "Where are his Jedi robes... a Sith?!" the Gran said "Jedi or Sith, whatever you are that," the human pointed at the item, "is ours. Return it before something unfortunate happens." -Dante- Buroc stopped checking his pockets, "What." It took a moment for his brain to process, "The room is high class, it should have auto-lockss." However despite the statement he pressed the button anyway. The door chirped in a negative. A feeling of unease, bordering on fear tugged at the Trandoshian's face for a moment, but swiftly squashed it. "Do you know anything about getting around doors?"
  15. -Dante- "Maybe they'll like you and let your ship go." The low bit music ended as the lift doors opened. Buroc began at a brisk pace as soon as the way was clear. The two navigated the plain passenger corridors smoothly noting that it was empty of either civilian or security. Though that fact didn't seemed noticed by the rushing reptile. He reached to pull out his Key Card and insert it and was surprised when his scaled fingers hit the card reader. His passenger card was wasn't there. The trandoshian let out a noise part hiss and growl as he started searching his own pockets.
