Proficiency Check – David Crennen & Star Wars RPG

David Crennen. Star Wars. Two things that go great together. If you missed the last Proficiency Check w/ Dom Zook that featured these two things never fear! You can check it out in its entirety on YouTube now!

In this episode Dom sits down with Mr. Crennen (the GM behind Never Tell Me the Odds, Crit Juice) to chat about creating engaging characters who are NOT Jedi in the current Fantasy Flight Games’ Star Wars RPG. The question is a good one. Very often Jedi are seen as paragon characters – thought to be multi-capable, strong, fast, and laced with deadly skills. XP hogs, even. However this just isn’t true – at least not in the current rules system that Fantasy Flight has created.

Curious about what they say? Check it out. There’s also a good run down of the unique dice system that this RPG employs and how to interpret the dice for best results.

What do you think? Are Jedi simply the best you can do in Star Wars? Or is there something to be said for a Wookiee diplomat character?

Be sure to let us know what you’d like Dom to cover next time on Proficiency Check, and if there are any guests you’d love to hear from!

Penultimate Season 2 Barky’s Brigade – Episode 11

If you’ve been holding out on watching Barky’s Brigade, there’s no better time to tune in. The part is reaching the conclusion of their mission: shut down the portal allowing waves upon waves of evil forces composed of a gnome/warforged army to enter the city of Perlamore.

Donovan, the paladin everyone loves to hate, has had his leg replaced with a warforged leg, and his hand replaced with a demonically-possessed head of a Pomeranian that’s obsessed with Asher, the party’s bard. A newcomer drow rogue named Dayl Clawthorne has proven herself in battle, but can she convince the party she’s on their side? Udo’s wild magics are consuming him while Arqe is just trying to keep her family together one last time.

The adventure continues tonight at 8:30p PST on both our YouTube channel and Twitch (as usual)! Our Patreon backers of $5+ can join in a special hangout session an hour earlier at 7:30p for Q&As and more behind the scenes discussion!

See you soon!
