Twitter glitched and locked replies. You can reply to this. I will talk about how it played in this thread...
So the party was an old B2 battledroid bodyguard, a scruffy ace drunk pilot, a traumatised biotech expert and a noble merchant son who is a crack shot. A rounded party with a tank, a shooter, a meh fighter and a healer who wasn't shooty at all.
And it played extremely well in the spirit of Star Wars. First fight was a shootout at a space docks between a Twliek Xi'an (from Mandalorian) and her Gran sidekick.

Lots of shooting and missing, four glancing hits that just stunned, a solid wound that dropped Xi'an...
...but let her live another day, and the players under pressure enough that they had a running shootout ending in them diving onto the ship and blasting off under fire.

The pilot and Xi'an got into melee, with her clipping him with her thrown dagger, and him smashing her... the face with a canteen.

The battledroid and biotech layed our supressing fire causing the Gran to duck back into a doorway.

All in all it played like a Starwars action scene, with minor injures for meh to bad rolls.
The biotech woman rolled a nat 20 (fumble) and so her pistol ran dry... but she rolled a critical hit (her dexterity +blasterd target number of 8 exactly) next turn, slamming home the fresh charge clip and getting off a shot immediately.
The old v2 battledroid sprayed a lot of gunfire and rolled poorly, missing his 14 or less to hit. He rolled a fumble and one of his guns jammed, and smartly switched to single fire to finish the fight rather than fix it.

As the ship warmed up, he tried to clear it but failed.
So there we go. The rules played exactly like a starwars scene, and the meh statted npcs kept the players entertained and thrilled. Xi'an walked away with a blaster burn to the chest, and who knows... maybe she can come back for revenge later on.
But the system worked FAST. We got seven combat rounds off, and the pace was exciting. Wound statuses, not chewing down hitpoints means fights move quickly. The stuns made the players nervous, and the pressure was good.
Two thumbs up.

My thoughts on making the game even more thrilling is each turn upping a DANGER counter, which adds 1 to damage. By the end of this fight, it would be at +7. That making running fights frightening.

Me on my usual #ttrpg ranty bullshit- please mute this thread as usual.

How my D6 starwars homebrew mod is going.
So, funny thing, WEG pretty much slipped a fast one on us with all the rulebooks because if you scan down the cheat sheets available online pretty much everything is 3 dice or 3dice+1. Blast pistol vs an eweb blaster? Honestly it makes fuck all difference for most encounters.
So for me starwars is way more swinging... it is high drama with epic highs and comic lows.
The d6 die system means you get bell curves happening, averaging out die rolls. That doesn't feel right to me.

So I decided to mix things up a bit and go to the queen of swing- d20

Game Pitch Spider-Bite.

Spiderman gameplay but you play the Spiderperson of an AU in the spider verse. You get to customise your character, play them from bite through making their (custom) costumes to fighting randomly customised enemies... your worlds version of Doc Oc might be Asian American, have a purple suit, and want riches or fame.

Your spiderverse. Your story.
As you play you get new tech and costume options from allies you make or enemies you defeat, from labs you explore and computers you hack.

Okay some writer type thoughts on finally watching Solo.
So, the basic premise is my first tinker. Because, fundamentally the movie is a "hey, you know that thing about Han Solo... what if we showed you him getting them"?

Uhg. This is pretty much redundant except for the dice, which have an emotional moment.
The important thing with a Solo prequel is not to give us an origin of everything, but to take us to the EMOTIONAL space in new hope.

You have to deliver him to the point where his character arc makes sense.

I said it before and I will say it again. Put all the cast of The Good Place in Star Trek uniforms and give them another show together.

Okay straight dudes, lets talk about the confusion you may feel being attracted to a transgender woman from a purely scientific point of view.

Your confusion will be lessoned somewhat by this.
Okay, so when we hit puberty, our bodies start amping up the hormones in our bodies.

This means our cells start working using a slightly different sequence of instructions, and the tissue formed from these cells develops differently.
As a result, we start to develop secondary sex characteristics. There are quite a few... butt, boobs, cheeks, body hair, skin changes... and that is when we start to be noticed by people
