So this poll is simple do you play??? Have you tried it???

Well I thought I would bring this up because I just started playing the RPG at Gencon 2008 and I love it. The game is great fun and if you can find a decent GM or become one you will have the time of your life.

Anyone else have any thoughts????

Are you interested if you have not played???

I haven't played RPGs since high school, but I can certainly understand the appeal. I'd love to try any sort of SW RPG. I assume Saga covers all the eras (from KotOR to the recent Legacy story).

Yes it really does and it well written system. The books span all the different eras but to get started one only needs the core. It is quite easy to get started and I find that once a Minis player plays the game they will be hooked.

I certainly have eyed those Saga books in the book store now for some time. It's mostly a matter of finding people to RPG with. Most of my friends from South Dakota don't bother with doing online stuff (since they have a good number of players available there). I used to be part of a Transformers RPG on Seibertron.com

Never used Skype before, but I can't imagine it's all that hard to use. I already have a headset for the computer, so that shouldn't be a problem.

I've used Vassal, but haven't updated it in ages.

I'm in an RPG with LoboStele with Lackey as our GM. We've been playing since early 2008 and only go at it once a month or so. I'm a Cerean Noble 6/Soldier 1.

I kind of play. I was part of 3 sessions in a row then my job changed and I may have time for 1 session every 2-3 months. I have one coming up this Friday if things work out.

My only problem is I am a Clawdite Con Artist in the middle of a bunch H&S'ers. It's sad when you attempt subterfuge to steal access codes but are completely cut off by 2 Jedi that barge in.

I need to redo my character so I can be one of the faceless tagalongs with the Jedi.

Sorry, if I sound a bit... bitter but I am a man of planning and not a man of action.

lol I get you totally.

That is why I am running a New Jedi Order campaign against the Vong. It is funny how no one wants to be a Jedi against the Vong.

I want to learn this darn system so I can run a campaign.

Settings I want to try:
Dark Times and Legacy (something about watching Jedi actually have to watch their step)
KOTOR (something about watching Jedi meet their match against Sith as powerful or more)

Imagine that. You almost get the feeling they're worried about what you might have in store for them :P. Still, I'm a sucker for Jedi. I wouldn't mind running one even amidst the Vong invasion.

Yeah! I want to try it. I also want more info too. I'm coming from playing the "classic" West End Games version from back in the day. I haven't played a Star Wars RPG (or any RPG) since most of my role-playing crew went on to bigger and better things out of state.

. . . And now there's the SAGA Edition. I have the majority of the books -- just need the most current book.

I'm brand new to the game, but me and some friends decided we'd try the game out. Me and one of the group play Star Wars minis so we are obviously hooked already. I was picked to be GM because I know a ton about Star Wars (my 90+ Star Wars book collection kinda is a geek-o-meter :P ). Hopefully I don't kill everyone right away *evil chuckle* as we are playing in Rebellion era. We are all playing in Brookings, South Dakota so if anyone wants to join in they are welcome! We currently have 5 people including myself. We are going to be having our first game in about a week. This game sounds really fun and can't wait to start getting experience as GM.

So far we have just the Saga Edition Rulebook and Force Unleashed Campaign guide. What are some other good books to get?

I been playing it since it came out, but only as a GM. I ran two campaign each lasting about one semester so around 16 sessions each. We did fast leveling so I think they ended at 14th level, starting at 3rd or 5th level. One was Dark Times to little after ep 4, with the main focus of the campaign was the Dark Troopers. The other was after ep 4 to a little after ep 5, focusing on the Muur Talisman. My only dislike of the system, is how fast and how high people force skill gets. Besides that its one of my favorite systems, if not my favorite.

I know the GM I have made an adjustment to a couple powers. He didn't llike the Lightsaber block vs Lightsaber deflect mechanic and just changed it to Lightsaber Defense. Almost sounds vaguely familiar to the minigame but he doesn't play it.

@ Obikenobi

If you're running a Rebellion Era campaign, then I would suggest the books:
-Rebellion Era
as well as, for any campaign, to have:
-Scum and Villainy
-Starships of the Galaxy (less necessary if you're not planning on being in space ever)
-Threats of the Galaxy

you can really flush out a campaign with interesting species and worlds.

Brookings, huh? I used to go to school in Brookings. Went to SDSU. I always liked going to Brosts Game & Hobby.

Man, what a small world.

Starships is an incredibly hard book to get, goes for about $100+ on Amazon. It's not exactly necessary since base Starship rules are in the Core book but it does have some neat hints. If people really need this (or KotOR, another rare book) there are digital copies out there (and certain people, cough me cough, have some they can upload).

Check carefully for the Starship battle book.


I found it at hastings online store. I got it for $17 while it was going for $100 on amazon.... so be sure to search very closely

Currently me and Jedi_Master attend SDSU. And we frequent Brosts Game and Hobby frequently. So yeah....small world. 8-)
