 Let me know what you think, I had to drop Presence to 3 to get her just where I wanted at chargen >.>

Presence 3 should still be fairly serviceable, especially since you want to be more than just a face. ^^

Looking over your skills, I should note that Brawl is no longer a career skill for smugglers.  Which ones did you select for your free skill ranks, and which ones did you spend experience to purchase?

Your Wound Threshold should be 12, not 11, and for your equipment, I'm assuming you took the extra obligation to get extra starting credits, rather than XP?  If so, you should have 300 credits leftover, not 200.

It looks pretty good aside from those issues, though. ^^ Are there prices for any other tools in the beta rules, or is it all just weapons and armor?

Edit: Ah, and I might as well post up my own character sheet. ^^; I got permission to play a non-standard race, but it's one that's fairly iconic, so...

 There's prices for other stuff, yeah. I just wanted to get the basics down though. I figure her for being fairly self reliable and not exactly trained into the Rangers in a normal way- most likely a veteran Ranger took her in as a mentor or something and taught her the code.

 Experience breakdown goes: Specialization (pilot) (20xp), Quick Draw (5xp), Galaxy Mapper (5xp), Brawn 2 (20xp), Agility 3 (30xp), Cunning 3 (30xp)

 Which, looking at it now, means I spent 10xp over and will probably have to drop my talents. Easier to drop than the Cunning 3, but still annoying :/

I think I'd probably save the specialization as something to spend exp on in-play, if it were me. ^^; You would have 15 experience freed up right away for other talents and skills.

Though, speaking of skills, the free skill ranks that you get have a bit of a limit on how they can be spent.  For the Smuggler career skills, you can select any four and have each of those four at rank 1, and then for the bonus career skills added on by the Scoundrel specialization, you can select two and put a rank in each of those, as well.  Where career skills and bonus career skills overlap, this does mean that you can get up to rank 2 in that skill, but skills aren't allowed to go any higher than that during character creation.

Spending some of your starting experience on picking up extra skills or reinforcing the ones you've already got is a perfectly valid option, though.

Well, Smuggler gives me trained in: Coordination, Deceit, Perception, Pilot (Space), Skuldaggery, Streetwise, Vigilance, and Knowledge (underworld). I put 1 rank into Deceit, Perception, Pilot (Space), and Streetwise.

 Scoundrel gives me Charm, Cool, and Ranged (light), and I put 1 rank into Charm and Ranged (light).

 Pilot gives me Astrogation, Pilot (planet), and Gunnery.

 This should be updated with all the changes: http://elliquiy.com/elluiki/images/f/ff/Twi%27Lek_Character.pdf

 Though, I wonder if Chris would let me get Force Sensitivity 1.... Anyway, bed for me. Hope this game launches off, I've been dying to try this system out since it was announced.

Well, you could ditch the Pilot specialization and pick up the Force Sensitive Exile specialization for the same cost.  That would get you a Force Rating of 1, though you wouldn't actually be able to do anything with it until you got some more experience and could use it to buy Force Powers.  It is a specialization that would make sense for someone with ties to the Antarian Rangers, though. ^^

Well, I should note that you don't have to be a Pilot in order to pick up the Astrogation skill.  Each rank will just cost an extra 5 XP, since it won't be a career skill.

Well without the rulebook I may cause more trouble than not. So I shall bow out respectfully.

Alright.  I hope you'll at least follow along with the game and check out the gameplay, to see if it looks like a game you might want to pick up for yourself, one day. ^^;

Bummer.  You'll be missed.

Actually, Kuni, you have the character creation aspect under control, I'll let you keep at it.  You have the more recent news and links.  :)  Thank you.

I'm going to look into seeing where we can post it.

Also, what would people like to see in this game.

 I'd be interested in a Roam the Galaxy and Alternate Universe style game. What if Luke and Leia didn't survive when Anakin threw Padme around? What if Obi-Wan took a more active role in leading the Rebellion?

 And where to put it... System Non-Con Exotic maybe?

Yeah, I'm more than happy to help people create their characters. ^^ As for what I'd like to see in the game, Roaming the Galaxy sounds pretty good to me, but I'd prefer not to go AU unless we're going to be strongly involved with the Rebellion.  If we're not, then there wouldn't be much point since we wouldn't really be close to the action anyway.

 Well, it's just a personal preference of mine ^^'

 I'd love to be involved in the heavy stuff in the Rebellion, going through the original trilogy with our own twist. But that's me, and I'd be fine with anything.

Interestingly enough, Fantasy Flight Games recently announced an open beta for Age of Rebellion, another Star Wars rpg that's going to specifically be about getting involved with the Rebel Alliance. ^^ It's going to use the same system, and Age of Rebellion and Edge of the Empire are going to be fully cross-compatible, so maybe it could be fun to start a more Rebellion-focused game when the beta testing gets started?

Don't worry, I'm sure most of the people who expressed interest have just been a little busy. ^^

Though, I would like to once again poke our GM to edit the opening post to have more about the plot and game system put into it...

For the record ALL my games are Alternate Universe.  Mainly because the moment I let PC's play in them, the game tends to be break from any sort of canon that the original creator may have had in mind.  :P

To be fair, I think the Special Edition made it pretty clear that the original Star Wars was already different from what Lucas had in mind for it. :P

True, though I probably won't be getting much of the former and will be trying to avoid the latter, since I'm playing a Jawa. :P
