This is for getting a more stylish flavor in the lightsaber combat. Attack and defense allocations are set. When the results are compared, the following could happen.
1 success - Force Back 2 successes – Knock off balance. All actions next round are -2 sit mod 3 successes – Wound as normal 4 or more – Trick
Force Back: The blows are so successful that the defender must fall back or retreat, usually to an unfavorable position. The GM and attacker can help figure out where the defender ends up (ie against the wall, toward a chasm.)
Knock off Balance – The winner manages to knock the defender off balance. A -2 sit mod is placed on their actions in the next round.
Trick – The winner can choose to pull off a stunt, like disarm the defender, or throw their cape over the defender’s head, knocking them to the ground. The winner may also choose any of the lesser success options like wound, Knock off balance or Force back.
How about Pheromones? Some aliens, such as the Falleen have Pheromones.
They do indeed. I figure if people who play this type of game want that alien, or any alien that has special racial things would work that out with the GM. But, it would have to be purchased with stones in character creation.
So what kinds of benefits and whatnot are there really going to be if a person is playing a different species? Is it basically just going to work out that you just say "Hey, my dude is a Wookie" and go with whatever stats are there, or will there be certain mins and maxes by species like there were for humans? Afterall, someone could theoretically decide to play an Ewok who's a master pilot and has a strength comparable to Chewbacca's.
I haven't dug into the aliens too far yet, but I think I am planning to base it off the Min/Max for stats that WEG took. So, an Ewok would have a max strength of 3, where a wookie could buy up to 7, for example.
Also, adding things in like Challenge: Primitive - 2 w stones. Which would stop them from taking things like Technology and Specialities in blasters.
Seeing as there are MANY aliens in Star Wars, I just haven't decided to tackle that part yet.
They don't get them for free. When I post a cost next to it, they have to pay that cost as being part of that species.
I call the Rage part an even, gain str, but lose int, so zero cost.
Claws, if you want to be a wookie, you have to pay 1 w stone to get it.
Also, Wookies come with a 1w stone challenge that will be included in the challenge limit established by the GM. So, if it is 40 stones + 5 in challenges, the 1w challenge for not speaking basic has to be part of the 5.
