    Who's sick joke was it for the word LISP to have an "S" in it, anyway?

    It is obviously a Scout that is Force-Sensitive and uses that connection to the Force to aid him/her in battle prowess. Battlemind and Enhance Ability would be excellent skills for this character, but again, that is pretty evident.

    Not sure if you were being sarcastic or not, but it is pretty obvious if you ask me.

    The archetype that your referring to is a way of defining a multiclass "set." These were in the Gamer, taken from a same idea for D&D classes in Dragon.

    So you had the shaman (force adept/fringer) in issue 4, the charlatan (force adept/scoundrel) in issue 5, the freelancer (scoundrel/scout) in issue 6, the dilettante (noble/scoundrel) in issue 7 (with the most lovely picture of a baragwin dilettante *shudder*), the battle empath (force adept/soldier) in issue 8, the mercenary (soldier/scoundrel) in issue 9, and the medic (soldier/tech spec) in issue 10.

    They often presented new equipment, new feats, and variant abilities for these archetypes.

    Ok, I have a question. If you win a game in these forums, you become a VIP. I got that down

    But one question,

    Where are the games? I see all these post topics, but I cant find game. This is the Role Playing Forum, right??

    There is a grouping in the Fan Activities Forums for actual roleplaying. This one is for the discussion of the roleplaying game systems of Wizards of the Coast and West End Games.

    Though I don't understand how you "win" a role-playing game.

    Its_All_Good, to play a senator, start the character off as a noble.

    Role Playing Forum

    I know someone that has "won" a LARP.

    Yeah, you can 'win' a RPG, trust me, I've won a few.
    How to 'win':
    1) Get a goal for your character, or a few if you're gonna be ambitious.
    2) Accomplish all of the goals you set out to do. (In game if possible)
    Bonus pts.) Be the only player who accomplishes this feat.

    Remember that it's not the quantity of the goals, but rather the quality. And it's not how many heads roll at your marvelous die rolls either.
    The race is over when the campaign ends, and the player who played best wins! 8-}

    Kyle_Kincade, no offence taken. It just looked like your question was asking for a definition. Don't worry about it. :)

    Experience is the best teacher. While it can seem like a lot to swallow at first, within a short period of time, youll be answering questions for others. :)

    Her Royal Highness Queen Sara enters...
    This has nothing to do with RPGs, but I have to ask it:
    Hey everyone, I'm writing a fanfic, but I only know of 8 planets in Star Wars. It takes place just before AOTC. Can anyone tell me of a human-inhabited planet in or outside the outer rim? Since it's an AU, could I make up my own planet?

    Is it worth it to buy the packaged Character Record Sheets? Is there any bonuses versus xeroxing the sheets in the back of the Core Rule Book?

    The package comes with sheets for characters, droids, and ships. The book only has the sheet for characters, however there are some minor differences between the original and the revised character sheets, so if you are using the revised rules, you may want to wait until a new package is released.

    I have been playing RPGs for about twenty years and have never bought "official" character sheets. Learn what you need to have on your sheet and print it up on your computer?
