So what's your policies on extra XP rewards for good roleplay and such?

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!

So maybe a dumb question, When a minion is dealt strain. It is converted to wounds. does their Soak apply to those wounds?

Also, according to the RAW, minions and rivals can't spend Strain to get an extra maneuver. There are situations where I would fudge this, but they're few and far between.

Hello, so let's talk about destiny points . Last session while the players were in a tough combat. One of my players flipped a light side point.
" I reach into my bag and pull out a frag grenade"
I thought that was a little too good so I suggested that when they were shopping he bought a Frag grenade and had the play spend the creds. If he provided me a narrative reason why he had one before I may have been swayed for free. How would have you handled that situation? And what are some things that are too powerful for just a destiny point?

Sure for equipment, but the example used frag grenades. Utility Belt allows you to get weapons of Limited Ammo 1 and rarity no greater than 4. Frags are rarity 5. Stun grenades work though. You can't use Destiny to get any weapons normally.

We have a large group so maps are a necessity. Usually we use a gridded map but just eyeball the range bands. Last night I figured out how to hook my iPad to this 36inch tv. This was the map from long arm of the hut dumped into 3D virtual tabletop. Preloaded "tokens" for the players and enemies and worked great.

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

Made an Obligation Tracker on Google Drive, If you change the Obligation Values column it will auto update the 1d100 table . not that the math was that hard but I wanted a quick way to keep track of obligation rolls and be ready when someone takes on more or less Obligation.

So I got tired of writing out initiative slots so I found some printable magnetized business cards and made my own initiative tracker.

I've been using this one for years, which I like.  it's not quite perfect for Star Wars, but it does the trick.  I just use green tabs for the PCs, and write initiative as "3.2" "1.1" and so forth.  Whole numbers being successes, decimals being advantages.  Then put them in order and you're good to go.  

In your case, I like the idea of packing tape over the tabs, perhaps remove the "Player" and "Villain" text, but leave the icons.

Soft launch for Sleemos and Nerf herders a Star Wars actual play podcast. Our first episode cover character creation for our Edge of empire campaign. We also use an exciting creation aid called "backstory cards" from Ryan macklin and Brooklyn indie games. We use these to help link the characters backstories together before the game begins. We are waiting for approvals from iTunes and sticher. But you can listen to the episode by clicking the link in the blog. New episodes every Monday!

My group has been recording our sessions for some time for our records. We just Started to play Edge of the Empire and i proposed the Idea to release the recordings as an actual play podcast. Right off the bat we don't introduce the players just the characters. We plan to do a proper introduction next week when we play our first session. It's a large group with 6 -7 Players. Just wanted to see what you guys think.
