    IA and i have been toying with the notion of running a firefly/cowboy bebop influenced RPG in the SW universe. at this point, it will be in the old D6 WEG system. i am very familiar with it, and it is very easy to pick up if you have never used it.

    well, were at the planning stage, so what i need is a show of hands (or posts :p) of who would be interested in playing.

    looking for 5(ideal) to 9(maximum) players. time frame: ANH.
    setting: your the crew of a small ship in the outer-rim. not much money, looking for work anywhere you can find it and trying to stay one step ahead of the empire.
    critial available job classes are: captain/pilot, co-pilot, mechanic, doctor, soldier.
    other classes will be available as needed, including gambler, kid, priest, ect...
    note: NO force sensitive characters!!!

    if you are interested in this, sound off! also include what dates/times are best for you...

    Dooby,

    It'd be nice to be slinging dice again and not have to worry about the combined brainpower of the rest of the people

    I'm in and I've got my eye on the Captain's spot (though not necessarily the Pilot's) if there are no objections...If there are objections I'll introduce you to the chain of command. ;)

    the one he beats you with until you figure out whos runnin' this show? :p

    the pilot can be a seperate character from the captain, just figured that if we run short of players he can fill both roles... ;)

    I can pull ground specialist/troopie/on-call-grenade-bearer

    Is it okay to be force sensitive as it does take into account your actions and affects the number of force points you can accumulate ?

    You know I'm there if Void is. Pilot perhaps? I'll have to think about that

    Can I borrow someone's character creation stuff?
    I want to play but want to be something different from any class/style I usually play in an RPG.
    Something that will challenge my skills to stay in character.

    You know, I've never RPGed and I'd like to try it but there's this thing in my way . . . 90 miles between me and PFF.

    Is there any such thing as a 1 day RPG???? :confused:

    Kreleia....

    Kylah can't make it, she's made on a different system than this one. We were playing d20 and this is the original systam that is d6 instead.



    Jada....

    Not sure what the schedule will be but I'd suggest at least taking a peek at the session just to see what it's all about. We were doing a bi-weekly schedule last time when I was running a game, not sure how that will affect you. If you want to join, I'd probably make sure you can commit to that kind of schedule (or whatever the guys post)



    Bunny....

    One of the things about the d6 system is character class doesn't exist. You just choose the skills you want to improve and do it...ie, if you have a guy that's an incredible pilot and you want him to have veterinarian skills, then write it down and spend skill points on it, doesn't matter. Here when we're talking "class" it's pretty much saying just what skills we're going to be spending our points on, short of force powers there are no restrictions on what anybody can do at any time.



    EDIT

    Sideshow, any interest in my copy of GG7: Tramp Freighters ? :D

    Also...Friday when we're at Bookman's for OTC, I'll be glad to point out what sourcebook you may be interested in buying as a player. You really only need the core one as opposed to a bunch of suppliments like the other RPG's. The d6 system is a very simple and versatile system.

    I would like to play. Hope there's still room.

    -D-

    Edit: Other than work, I have no prior commitments. But depending on location, weekends (afternoon) would probably work better for me.

    hmmmm... bucket o' dice, unfamiliar gaming system, other factors that weigh into it more than those two feeble reasons...

    I'm thinking maybe I should back out, actually.

    Ah well. Another time.

    I'm availible on weekends at any time except after 1700 on sundays.



    Kreleia....

    The system is this...you have a number on your sheet, roll that many 6-sided dice, if you roll higher than the other guy you win. That's it, nothing else. As for other issues....um, 42 !!!



    I know that AZSithLord and I have pretty much every sourcebook ever written for that system and several of the adventures. If anybody needs to consult, then let me know and I'll schedule a time to get together with you at my place...then we can run them by the bosses for approval on game day.

    I'm thinking I'll make a Mashi Horansi (They've been mentioned in the novels like once, but I got a nice pic)



    EDIT

    Hey Feldman, I've got stats for running a Palowick for ya (Sy Snootles species) :D
