How would you like to see Force Powers handled in Savage Star Wars? (In other words, would you use the system if it had the chosen option?)

what would happen if you replaced a jedi's wild die with the die type of their force skill? that way they're naturally better at nearly everything simply through channeling the force. this would be separate from using actual powers like force push.

or as a general power you could allow them to add their force skill die type to any roll for a cost in points. for when you just have to make that piloting roll. if a character had a d8 in fighting and a d10 in force their roll might look like this: 7, 4(WD), 9(FD). 7+9=16. would this overpower fighting compared to Parry scores? i can't think of a simple way to remedy that if it does.


That's pretty funny, very similar to what i was thinking. In my Clone Wars conversion (still incomplete) i have force users roll their force attribute die whenever they spend a benny (for a reroll or to soak or whatever).

For general power and competence from using the force, i just have 'boost trait' as a core force power (all force users can use it)

Is that it? Only 37 poll responses?

Come on all of those who have nothing to reply, you must at least have an opinion. Wink

Hey all,

Thanks for all the responses. I'm sorry to say (for those who care) that I won't be continuing any work on Savage Star Wars at this time. I am on a self imposed break in order to focus on some other areas of my life. I am still available via private email.

Thanks,

Hey Jon!

Just wondering if you've worked anymore on the conversion since I know you are still lurking here occassionally?

Also, can anyone tell me how to vote in a poll? I'm new to the boards and don't see how to vote?

I'm very interested in the Star Wars conversions. I"ve been asking a lot of questions myself before I found this thread. Has anyone actually used the Shadowrun Magic rules in a game? Do they work well?

Hey Norm,

Nope, I haven't done any more work on the conversion. I'm getting married in a week and have been pretty busy otherwise as well.

I think I set the poll for 14 days when I first set it up. In retrospect, I should have set it to indefinate. Can any moderators of the list change it after the time expired?

I'm using them in my current Savage Shadowrun game and they work well.
