Ep 45 : Nice work Sean you got the dice mechanics for the Edge of the Empire mostly right.

The Edge of the Empire dice are great and add tons of flavor to the narrative of the game because you can fail but still have a somewhat positive out come. When you have space travel during EotE I try to have a few different "disadvantage" and "advantage" out comes in my back pocket. Disadvantage: Jump a few clicks off course, galaxy map is out of data, jump into an asteroid field, hyperdrive fails mid jump and so on...if you fail the check the ship just won't turn on. Fail: you spin up the hyperdrive and it shorts the power, fuel cells have been drained, bad motivator or whatever.

Han Solo for having the fastest ship in the galaxy was never the fastest off the line. In fact I would say he often failed his dice rolls but gained enough advantage to boosts Chewies repair skill checks.

When dealing with group dynamics and role playing your character should you ever resolve conflict within the party with skill checks? Example: If a character in the group is more persuasive shouldn't they have a stronger say in the direction of the party because the character might not know any better or be unable to say no to the idea.

All good thoughts...I think it really depends on the group and the GM. In terms of D&D its very much "all for one and one for all". In  a game like Edge of the Empire the motivations of a character could be resolved when their obligation is triggered.
