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!
