Greetings! This is the thread for out of game chat & discussion for Edge of the Empire--The Jewel of Yavin! This game carries on continuity from the previous module the group played, Beyond the Rim


Heroes
Player Character Name Career/Specialization
Akhatosh Ishmael Cindar Bounty Hunter
jhhoffmann Jak Pilot
soylentRed Astarii Menaraev Explorer:Scout
dirtybacon Bonn Marmot Driver
belirahc Tellarn Gandor Colonist
mark sable "new guy"


Throughout the game, this is where you post to discuss most anything that isn't an in-game action, statement, etc. This avoids cluttering up the "game" thread and disrupting the narrative.

As promised, here is the 15,000 credits, with a 5,000 credit bonus for getting Cratala herself back here.
Math is hard....

Does this mean 20,000 Cr total? Six players, so 3,333 Cr each?

I need to level up Bonn, and then I'll be ready to rock.

Should we do anything about our obligation? I'm still a little loose how that all fits together.

Soon is awesome, just post when you are ready!

As to the obligation--you can use the XP to buy down the obligations, of course, as long as it is reasonable that Reom's or Cratala's influence goes in that direction. He probably can't get you clear with an Imperial Agent, but he *can* get you out of customs trouble somewhere, or out of debt to some shady gentlemen in suits.

Alrighty! Well - my good news is, I got a new job. My bad news is - I'll be less active during normal work hours... when I should be doing work and not posting on BGG anyway... like right now.

I will have breaks and lunch when I can post and look - but - in two weeks I start a long training period. I will get my character leveled up and ready to roll - I will also let you know if for some reason I am AFK for a while... not terribly likely.

So yeah - I'll get my character up-to-date in the next day or so here.

So thinking about this a little bit.

We all have like 3300 to spend. Are there things the ship needs that we can pitch in on? I just got a lot of gear I wanted - I wouldn't mind another probe however... need to check the book again.

Otherwise - I just got a new gun I've barely even used yet!

What are things that can help us as a group?

If you really can't find anything to do with your money, I am sure Bonn would be very happy to help you out with that... whistle

But seriously, Is there something our ship might need? That's a good thought. I think I might want a few things, but I don't know that I really NEED anything.

Just hanging on to them credits?

I keep forgetting to bring my books to work with me! I have 7 more workdays where my load is fairly light. Been meaning to do that over lunch/breaks.

Well, I'll likely buy some extra grenades, cause I like stuff going boom...

Aside from that, I've got most of what I need. Might spend some to lower my obligation, though I wonder if I haven't already lowered it due to the fact that Rex put me on this job...

I'll give it a look over.

If anyone plans on getting cybernetics, you now know a good doc who will work cheaply, remember.

I will get my character updated tonight - is this the week we will kick it in gear and get rolling again?

Anyone look at all into any ship upgrades?

I've spent my XP. I don't have any idea of what to spend my credits on.

With respect to the ship we have Hull Trauma: 8 / 25. By the book (p. 245) this would cost around 4000 credits to repair, with the GM having final say. Is everyone willing to chip in for the repair costs?

After repairs, I'm open to any upgrade suggestions.

Yeah - I think we need to work on the hull... kind of an important piece. We did just help Reom out a LOT - maybe he can throw us a deal on the repair.

I think it would make sense to upgrade as well... I will look back at my "wish list" of items I was hopeful to eventually pick up - I think there is a scanner droid I had wanted that was like 1,000 credits... have to check my book.

Otherwise I will get my XP spend this morning and likely be ready to roll as well.

2 3 4 questions - cause it's been a while.

1. We have 40 XP right? Found it!
2. You cannot upgrade with XP your general characteristics right? The Intellect, Agility, etc. Reading on it right now - Book says "May spend experience to increase characteristics. This is the only time characters can increase characteristics with experience points." From table 2-4 on Page 92 of the core rulebook. So - how do I increase those now?
3. Is Reom able to help with my Obligation? (Obsession - Astarii holds a deep desire to learn more about the relics taken with his former crew by the empire. He hopes to balance learning more about the old relics and the possible demands coming from the relic curator and the casino boss to deliver something on that last job.)
4. Anyone have the link to the old thread by chance? I think I have the wrong weapon on my character sheet... I swore I purchases one with Accurate 1, Pierce 2 - I thought I picked up the X-30 Lancer and want to look back. Found it!

2. The only way to upgrade your characteristics after character creation is by getting one of the talents from your tree that allows you to do so. Usually one of the bottom ones.
