  1. I thought it was okay (saw it in Theatre's), as others in the media have said I liked it better the first time when it was called Star Wars Episode 4 A New Hope :-) It uses the exact same plot frame work as Episode 4, so mostly enjoyable.
  2. Just a fun video I did for my usually Radio Comedy YouTube Channel in honor of Star Wars The Force Awakens hitting theaters today.
  3. If it is something they could look up in real life at the table right then get them to do it in real time. If they are trying to look up open heart surgery or basically anything complicated (then trying to call it their I win button) it should quickly become clear even to the most anal of players that the smart phone just like in real life is not your instant access second brain :-) For legit things like the flash light app, simple info searches, maps etc. most of the time it is just something you as the GM will have to deal with in a modern RPG setting. In Star Wars now that our phones in
  4. We use to play 2 or 3 times a month but I have two little kids now, plus I'm still doing radio comedy (and now YouTube) plus working from home so it has been whittled down to once a month thing. I have a face book group page where I post the events along with game session updates/reminders but still this no show crap continues. My daughter is 6 now and I have already run her in a little one encounter game (actually that was when she was 5). She really liked it (and keeps bugging me to let her play too) so maybe it is time to leave my group of largely flaky players behind and start trainin
  5. Hey all it has been a year or three since I have been on this site. As for my Star Wars D6 activities I try to run a game once a month, but that seems to really work out to once every 3 months at best. Saturday of last week I had a game scheduled I spent a great deal of time thinking about the game details and a couple hours writing it only to have most of my players suddenly become unavailable at game time. I have not been very impressed with my group for a while now. Anyway on a positive note I am glad to see this site is still active, I'll try and be on here more often.
  6. Cool thanks! Turns out (according to 2nd ed Revise) that without knowing it I have been largely staying within the guide lines of cp and the loud mouth pig headed jerk of a former player of mine is now breaking these guidelines himself in his own campaign :-) The same ones he kept telling me I was not following :-) So glad I don't play with him anymore, I hate hypocrites. Thanks again!
  7. Does anybody know where the cp award guid is? In what book does it appear, I have looked through my 2nd ed and 2nd ed revised SW core rule books and can't find it. I remember reading it a number of times over the years (never really following it) but now I can't find it. A former player of mine use to like beating me over the head with it no matter how many times I told him to ram it :-) Anyway I would like a look at it just to see how my cp awards stack up to the guidelines. I remember it stating that any PC or even NPC who attended a game got 3 cp and then some stuff about fun and c
  8. No problem, thanks for tuning in. I'm really glad that podcasting site is there it gives me after the fact exposure. Even with 6 Radio stations airing A-PAC, any modern show needs an online option cause practially nobody has the time to catch shows especially Radio Shows every week at the same time.
  9. So a modest amount of views on my thread here, any thoughts on the special itself? Like I said it has lot's of geek in it this year that I'm thinking many of you will like! :-)
  10. Plus it has a VERY healthy portion of GEEK infused in it this year many of you will probably appreciate :-) I.E. Doctor Who fans, Star Trek The Next Generation Fans and of course Ghostbuster fans. Teaser and link below Annual A-PAC Christmas Special of 2011 Something is going on up at the North Pole, Christmas for 99 percent of us could be in danger! Will Tim Morgan notice that something is not quite Christmassy? This years Annual A-PAC Christmas Special is an adventure ride worth throwing up on!!!

  11. I posted this thread a number of days ago, has anyone had the chance to take a listen to the special????
  12. It's a Not For Profit show that I do as a hobby and it airs coast to coast across Canada on 6 Radio stations with a 7th that offers it as a podcast. Anyway so far I've been getting largely positive reviews, so I thought I would go outside of my sphere of friends and group members to see if I can get some really harsh internet reviews that are both insulting and deeply disturbing :-) That's why I came here :-) The show is only about 28 minutes long so if you are so inclined have a listen and let me know what you think. The show title is A-PAC Week of October 24 to 30, 2011 A
  13. What I hate and don't use when it comes to ship damage is the 0-3 stun level for a ship. That equals -1D to fire control, damage, shield dice etc for the rest of that round and the next! Hell stunning a ship or sorry sheilds blown/controls ionized is worse than most of the stuff on the Lightly damaged chart. Especially if you don't have any maneuverability dice to begin with then you are really screwd) So I just knock off a pip of Shield dice if applicable and or leave a burn mark on the PC's ships paint job (something they do get annoyed about:-) Of course I only ignore this rule when ships
  14. No prob, actually on the defense side recently I nearly killed one of my NPC's when he was shot in the torso. I forgot to give him the +1D to resist torso hits, I only realized this later so I'm glad I cut him a little slack on his mortal wound roll. He was going to die because he blew his roll to stay alive the same round a PC started working on him. I let him live and then later noticed I had screwed him out of 1D of defence dice so it all evened out :-)
  15. Other options for the PC with the 3D blaster versus a bear or wookie is to aim for the head as per the rules he would get a +1D bonus to damage. Additionally another preexisting rule is if he waits till the bear is within the weapons point blank range which is either less than one metre or less than 3 depending on what the guns short range is listed at he would then get another +1D to damage. So there are 2 ways to get up an additional 2D in damage making his 3D Hold Out blaster do 5D. If you work in the rule Grimace is talking about for extra pips of damage for every X amount over the dif
  16. It would be awesome if we got back a D6 SW, I'm not sure if any new players would really care that the "old" D6 SW stuff was re-printed. The system has been out of print for so long that most of the younger players have never even heard of D6 SW. A 3rd ed version of SW D6 would be in order of course but beyond that I think we would be good to go as long as all the re-printing legalities were in order. As for Eric IF they approached him about buying any rights that he may still own, let's hope they offer him something reasonable and he accepts a reasonable offer.
  17. Anybody have any idea how hard it would be for them to get the rights to update/reprint the old Star Wars D6 supplements under their banner? The system is Open true but in our wildest dreams can we realistically hope they could pull off a resurrection of SW D6? It would be very VERY awesome if they could do it and do it in a way that they will still make money of course.
  18. Same here for me as said above with the min max's for the species attributes. If they move anymore than 1D I will get them to mark "custom" somewhere in the template type as to not cause confussion down the road.
  19. I ran a campaign that was published in the latter half to end of WEG Star Wars publishing run. I ran The Far Orbit Project campaign it had a some what detailed first adventure and then a whole series of small to medium sized hooks throughout all interlinked to a lesser or greater extent. I believe I ran them all and my group had a blast and still talk about it to this day even though the campaign came to an end over 8 years ago. Personally I always shied away from the large multi episode pre-written adventures, as I felt I had to study them too much and take too many notes in order to get
  20. Yeah I forgot about the Lando stuff, that would be neat to get stats on especially his Driod guy that evolved. The animated series stuff would take a lot of work I'm guessing as it is still on going and packed with new NPC's and equipment but at least it could be something new that is coming out after every season of the show.
  21. (No insult intended) Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems to me that a lot of the GM's here are of the game style of keep the players broke to flat broke, nothing too fancy tech wise and hanging on by the skin of their teeth. Obviously we are all free to run our games however we like. Personally I don't have much money in real life so fantasizing about being broke in my spare time holds absolutely no apeal for me. Obviously there usually are limits to this, having characters who can always buy whatever they want without a care in the world is tiresome too, not to mention game destroyi
  22. Get your hands on Stock Ships, it has like 20 Stocklight Frieghters in it all with deck plans. http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Stock_Ships I have it and it is great!
