My copy of the core rules arrived today so if anyone wants to take a look and start their character creation they're welcome to pop down some time.
Flames Of War: Soviets
Team Yankee (6mm and 15mm): Soviets
Bolt Action: Soviets
DUST: SSU aka Soviets (anyone spotted the theme yet?)
Star Wars Armada: Imperials (Space Soviets, a long, long time ago)
Epic Armageddon: Imperials (Space Soviets, in the grim, far future)
Frostgrave: Dwarves (Short Soviets)

I'd be more interested in making characters and getting involved, but could use pre-made ones if people want to. Don't mind if that's in the episode 7 timeline or when we're actually playing.

I've actually been looking at splicer, though I think I may need to pair it with something to round it out a bit. That may be able to wait until later in the game, though. I'll have to see what the actual options are and how they feel for making a character.

I'll probably try coming down a little earlier on Tuesday to get a head start on creating my character. If there were a few character sheets to fill in that'd be helpful.

Let me know when you're here and I'll give you a hand/some advise. I also have the rulebook which should help. I can print you off a character sheet too.

Really getting into prepping for this, there is so much kore support from fantasy flight and in the online community for this system compared to heresey.

key tonsuccess on the table will be how we do the dice, i think tom did it really well with making it a shared atory tellig tool rather than a job for the dm to interperet so goong to try and go down that route.

Also would lime to make good use of the boost and set back dice to encourage more cinamatic style descriptions of what you are doing.

I've made a character if people want to have a look: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-DPvYWJ8N37c2Y1NUFGMGdDSGs

I'll probably be down around 1830 tomorrow (are we aiming for 1930 starts now?) to discuss it in case people are horrified (or just have a chat with whoever's around).

So you can think about characters....

The starting premise is that you are a group of down on your luck smuggling outfit who have been working out of your own ship (yt-1300) for the past two years.

You will have a group obligation on top of your personal ones, a large loan with a hutt you took out to buy the ship. Youve struggled to keep up with patments for the last couple of years. The hutts patientce is getting thin however, you meed to make some credits, and soon....

CJ cant make it but we will carry on with character creation and start. Some one being on the ship at the start fits the plott fairly well.

Sorry guys, picked up a bit of a head injury during training and have to get checked out before I can drive. If I'm still fit I'll be away at the competition next week. See you the following Tuesday, sorry for the late notice
