    My Fantasy Roleplay Pool currently has Bacta down for 12 kills, Leenik with 8 successful capture plans, and Tryst with 9 instances of dressing in drag.

    I’ve got a lot riding on this guys!

    Side note: EotE doesn’t actually assign initiative slots to different players. Instead, there are PC and NPC slots, and each round the PCs decide which slot they act on.

    So, if Tryst wins the highest initiative slot, but Bacta is in a better position to act, Bacta can take the first slot.

    Assigning slots certainly makes combat faster, but given the free form way you guys play, you might like the “official” rules in this case.

    1. We are still learning those. I am spending my Christmas vacation with my head in a book.

        Well, I think the seat-of-the-pants approach to advantages and triumphs has actually worked well for you guys. You’ve got enough experience in improv that weaving story elements on the fly comes naturally to you.

        People who come to the game after rigorously studying the rules (or even just experienced players), tend to get bogged down in the mechanics of advantages and triumphs.

        I’ve seen plenty of sessions where all the advantages in combat become crits, boost dice and strain recovery, without any narrative explanation.

        In fact, I think you’re the only person I’ve seen justify spending an advantage to recover strain: it was when you and Tryst had your heart-to-heart chat in the gunnery nest. It was such a small thing, but it’s probably the single best roll interpretation I’ve seen in Edge of the Empire.

        1. Thanks! We are totally working on it. The good thing about this group is we care way more about the story than we do about the game. As we understand the game better it will enhance the foundation we are putting down in these early episodes.

    Episode 7 was so great!

    As always, very cinematic and a memorable ending. There were so many awesome moments. It’s hard to pick the best one. if I had to pick one moment, I loved the scene between Bacta and Pliff. Hilarious!

    Who is this “god” fellow the guys keep referring to in the game? 😉

      God’s a #Kanan Star Wars concept. Buncha humans say it. Leia says Lord at one point and Han talks about Hell. I doubt their whole shpeel is very much like an earth religion, but with C3P0 babbling about being recognized as a god, some folks within the 20k+ years of history we know about being monotheistic makes sense.

      The real Q is why we sometimes say Jesus.

        Re-listening to these right now (my job affords me way too much podcast time) and noticed your response. That’s nuts that they had those random references. Been way too long since I’ve watched the original movies.

    Just found out about these — amazing work, everyone! “God, I bet your name was Melissa…” is just another in the growing collection of hilarious gold you spin on this awesome podcast. Thank you!
