Rappy’s RPG Reviews: Star Wars Roleplaying Game Revised Core Rulebook, Part 3

Characters and Commoners

Yeah, no witty title, don’t really have much to say here beyond “what you expect”, but I’ll run down the list of who you’ll find and how high a character level they are…because I’m an idiot. Read the rest of this entry »

Rappy’s RPG Reviews: Star Wars Roleplaying Game Revised Core Rulebook, Part 2

Bringing Balance

Most of what you’ll see in the chapter specifically dedicated to the Force is fluff, but there are a few crunchy notes that affect gameplay that I should go over. First, you have Force Points. Any character can have them, although only Force-Sensitives can have more than 5 at a time. They work sort of like d20 Modern’s Action Points, as well as having the ability to be spent to remove Dark Side Points. Speaking of which…well…Dark Side Points. What can I say about DSP? Well, it partially acts as the alignment system of the game; the more DSP you have, the more “evil” you are. It also acts as a drain ability, in that a tainted character (one that has one-half their Wisdom score or more in Dark Side points) must make a Fortitude save or permanently lose 1 point of one physical ability score each time they gain a new level. This is essentially both an act of penalizing Dark Side players and replicating Emperor Palpatine’s whole deterioration thing. Read the rest of this entry »

Rappy’s RPG Reviews: ExorSystems, Inc.

Welcome again, dear viewers. I know it’s a bit early in the year for spooks and spirits, but…hey, I did say I’d be working at my own pace, after all. We’re going to be looking at ExorSystems Inc. by Octavirate Entertainment. This often tongue-in-cheek title draws heavily from GhostBusters, so you know this is going to be an interesting jaunt.
