Adventuring (seeds)  - 
 
Had to share a map pack I found Drive Through Rpg that works perfectly for for some Star Wars encounters. I like minimal style allows to show important aspects but still room for your imagination to fill in the blanks.

how do you guys figure out rewards of the credits and equipment. I want to keep them hungry but I'm not looking to track their food or gas expenses unless it's relevant to the plot.

So rewards can come in many forms. Maybe they get a cool gun or item or ship part or a crystal for a lightsaber or whatever

Hello guys i seem to have issue balancing my groups encounters. I have most nights 7 players we have playing weekly since january and they have 225 earned xp. Now only 5 of the character are focused combat. Two melee focused one dual blaster and two long range. They have combat medic with a bacta tank on their ship. So crits do not last long. The two other character a technicians one a slicer specialist one a outlawtech mechanic. I try to split the party as often as I can. But I can't seem to get the mix down of rivals and minions. Ether.minions dying before be coming a threat. Also I feel the destiny points are never an issue they seem to always have enough. I'm also worried about over equiping enemies. What are your tactics for encounter building? I've listen to npc deli episode on order 66 podcast but I feel maybe I'm missing something.

As a GM I found one of the hardest things was using the disadvantages/despairs correctly. If they are never flipping destiny points then the encounters are not tough enough. Take away some of the group's power by jamming a gun or making them reload more often. It makes a big difference depending on the enemy.

Also sometimes they just need to lose. Put them against an impossibly strong enemy that is weak to a non combat solution. It will get the party focusing more on alternatives to just beating their way through things. It might even force them into buying skills and talents that specialize them a bit less.

Made some custom player tokens for my players this week. I take the art print on photo paper, punch it out with an 1 inch circle punch.then I put a clear epoxy stick on the top and the. Glue it to a wood base. Got to use them for a trap they made for an adversaries lackey to press him for Intel on their nemesis.

Been busy moving over the last month but. Over the last couple of weeks I made some custom destiny tokens from acrylic discs. I've also made my own GM notebook. Complete with npc card npc generator tables and session notes. I typical run standing up and our table space is limited do I made the notebook to replace the screen (I do miss the art :( )

Hamming it up = having fun = the whole point. Yes, I always give extra XP for good roleplay. But that also includes coming up with inventive solutions to in-game challenges.

Rewarding for combat is about the most boring thing you can do. If a playerbacting as their smuggler can talk their way out of a mess--without having to resort to rolls, that's huge, in my book!
