Welcome to my tips/advice thread for the Star Wars game! Unlike the Galactic Survival Guide, which is more of a play reference and gives some basic tips about combat, this thread is more about the role-playing experience, and how to better perform as Jedi or Dark Siders. This is, obviously, important for a better gaming experience for everyone involved. But important how, exactly? Well, there are two ways:

1. Mood. No fun playing a Jedi game if no-one ACTS like a Jedi- a problem Gundy always found frustrating when others did not live up to the style!

2. Efficiency. Good play brings rewards. By now, the vets are getting pretty solid with rules and how combats work, but people are still a little over-awed by trying to actually be successful within the game.

So here I hope to be able to give a few tips on how to live up to your role, and how to do better whilst playing! Because their plots and styles are radically different, this will be split into Light and Dark sections. Enjoy!

hey thanks ush, this'll be really helpfull.

General Zink
Rand would have to go with Power Varients A and B. He wants to be on top and he wants to be able to brag about it...

Captain REX
Hah! B & E!

Silver Stardust
WHY am I not surprised? stick out tongue

I think with Rianna I'd have to go with D and C, with a little bit of E...heh!

Thanks much Ush,
It'll help with the missions.

Lord Melkor
For Gallador it is between A, D and E

Captain REX
You know, we never got a background for Gallador, Melk!

Ushgarak
Anyone have any opinions on the first-asked Dark Side question?

Captain REX
First question for Galder would be D. He hasn't exactly been Mr. "I'm Going to Own You All!," and he rather likes Takuan and Rah as companions.

Silver Stardust
For the first one, probably A with a little bit of D.....

Dexx
first one: a with d
second...c with g

those should basicly describe it

Baylin
I think Rah is a mix of d, e, and g

Lord Melkor
A and B concering the first question

Lord Melkor
Ush, how much about playing the Darkside, motivations and personalities do you think could be aplied to OT game Imperials? You said that the mood allows for as much theatrical evil as we like.

Certainly the military templates alllow for characters whose ruthlessness is a bit mitigated by having a bit of soldierly ethos and certain dignity. On the other hand I feel that Administrator may very well have no redeeming qualities, since here we have politician working for a very evil regime, and of the all Imperials he can have most Sith-like qualities, so I am playing him as pure villain.

Any tips specifically for OT game?

Ushgarak
The OT game strikes me as a simpler time. Still, we'll have a post mortem afterwards and see what people think of it all. This thread was first created after a fair amount of play, after all.
