I'm flattered...

My character hooks for a Jawa mechanic are:
1. He has Chewbacca's language skills -- he understands a few languages, but he only speaks his own.
2. He's good at jerry-rigging, but improvised repairs only last until the device in question is no longer (critically) needed (or the GM needs it to fail for plot reasons).
3. He will try to take anything that isn't nailed down if he thinks he can use it. Ever.
4. He can wiggle into ducts, engines, conduit pipes, etc (contortion or acrobatics skill).
5. "Utini" means whatever I want it to mean at any given moment. (If the character is recurring, limit him to one "utini" per session or it gets old fast.)
6. In my version of the SW universe, Jawas are found on many planets, not just Tatooine. No one really knows where they come from, and the Jawas aren't saying.

Your Jawa mechanic may , of course, vary.

The flight is booked. Therefore I will be in Groton Thursday/Fridya. Looks like I should to be in Boston on Sunday night to meet with other colleagues coming in early.

I will keep updating my plans as they develop.

I just joined a group playing a Star Wars Saga edition game set in the Old Republic (just after the 2nd KoTOR). The group had already been playing for a while, so I came in midgame. They had just acquired a droid NPC, so I offered to use that as my PC as it sounded like a fun character.

AG-420 was a Republic medial droid prior to ending up in the hands of Tagg, a drug smuggler who later became a dead NPC at the hands of the PC's. Under Tagg's ownership, AG was programmed to become a pusher for Tagg's wares. This became evident upon the heroes first outing when, upon their return, AG proudly showed his new Master Ran how much money he had made selling off all of their med-kits... the looks on the players' faces was hilarious. I happened to be observing that game, and that's when I decided I wanted to join in as AG's newly acquired Independent Spirit.

This last game, they got a chance to see a little of AG's schizoprenia. Throughout the game, AG kept protesting violence against organics, bemoaning how he would have to patch them back up afterwards. That was, until the climactic last battle, when we were trying hold off waves of baddies while waiting for the Jedi that was rescuing slaves about a gladiatorial entertainment ship. Asked to provide help by Master Ran, AG proceeded to unveil a blaster rifle that was a part of his left arm and loosened a hail of blaster fire into one of the enemies... Amidst the looks of shock (again) among the players, I had AG respond:

"Oh, Master Ran, I simply detest violence and do not condone it in any circumstance! I'm a medical droid and my basic programming is to heal organics. But that meatbag was trying to render me nonfunctional. He refused to calm down even with my offers of antidepressants or illicit substances. So of course I had to shoot him through the ascending portion of the aortic arch lest he deprive the galaxy of my invaluable skills as a highly sophisticated medical droid that could potentially save many more lives that that dirtbag's wretched existance. It does certainly perturb my programming on the most
fundamental level however."

(And yes, I did spend a turn trying to offer the baddie meds to help alleviate his feelings of hostility and anger; which only led to him shooting me).

AG-420
Medium Droid, 1st degree
Noble 2 / Soldier 1

Feats: Skill Focus (Treat Injury, Knowledge - Life Sciences, Use Computer), Weapon Proficiency (Rifle, Heavy), Burst Fire

Talents: Medical Droid, Devastating Attack (I rationalized it as his detailed knowledge of biological beings allows him to hit them where it hurts the most)

Str 10 Dex 14 Con - Int 16 Wis 18 Cha 10

Cool droid Fu-Man Chu

As to Thod, Rogan, Myrthe, and Harneloot. I finally heard back from my FLGS today, and yes there is room to run something.

So IT'S ON.

Guess we just have to set a time...

And me finish the adventure... :)

Thanks for organizing !! This sounds really great and I look forward to it. Could you let me know place and approx. time.

Great to meet Harnloot (I think I sold you some carpets a while ago), Myrthe and Rogan.

Just as a warning ahead - I haven't played SW before. I'm happy to learn and open for a new experience - but go easy on me. But what better opportunity could be there to learn something new.

Any pointers what I should do to prepare?

This is the store The Time Machine, so if you are in the manchester/hartford area for your hotel that would be easiest, but not surewhat you want to do. The next day is the supper bowl here so many americans will be all locked in doors on sunday watching Da Big Game.

I have been working on some pre-generated characters, so those, minis, and terrain will be provided... I have a little "cheat sheet/reminder but on my laptop for the games mechanics, i will send it to anyone intersted and likley print a few out.

Bring Dice? and uhm in general just know how d20/3.75 works, and maybe watch a SW movie to get in the SW mood (watch your favorite :) )

Ok I am thinking Noonish? if that is ok with everyone interested, and if you are reading this and in the area come on down...

If for some reason we don't get a lot of people, I have some board gamesin my car pretty much all of the time so there will be something to do. If it has regular plays it's in the car.

Sounds great, GS !! Thank you for coordinating this.

So what is the first, basic Star Wars RPG book I should get to cram before Saturday (to make myself "dangerous" with a minimal amount of game info) ?? Is there a "Players Handbook" ? Or is it just a general, all-purpose RPG book for players and GMs alike ?

Looking forward to meeting anyone who can make it !!

No there is no Players Handbook, there is just the Core rule book, that i recenlty desribed to some one as 1/4 Players Handbook, 1/4 DMG, 3/8 Both and 1/8 the crappiest MM you will ever get.

Thod, Mythe anyone else interested contact me and i have a PDF of the imporant concepts of Saga.

Does helping to build SW lego ships count as getting in the mood. My son is a great fan. The next big one he wants is the Starcruiser.

Yes please - send me the tip sheet - jens add loesel dot freeserve dot co dot uk

I've now bookings until Saturday at the Mystic Hilton in Groton - and a hired car until Sunday. This should give me full flexibility. I guess I will have to decide until Friday if I want to extend by a night or stay elsewhere.

My plan will be to arrive early at the shop. This will give me time to browse - after all - the kids already asked what I bring back - with Philip wanting something SW related. I guess this will be my best chance to actually pick up something useful.

Looking forward to some gaming

It should... SW legos are fun.

Sounds good, i will likely be a bit early as well trying to set up that monsterous layout in the game room down stairs. It BARELY fits on my table at home... I may set up the Ruins and do the caves seperate maybe another table or something.... will see.

As it is i am tweeking the adventue (page 10 of 20) and starting on some custom minis tonight. Then tommorrow night gather up all of the figs I will need... and bag them in handy zip lock baggies for encounters.
