Saturday, December 30th

Well, the year is about to end  on us.  Lets try to take it out with a bang, instead of a whimper.  Kevin said that he would be running this weekend, so, lets load up our guns and start banging away.

Who can be there?

Saturday, December 23rd

Ok, so, Christmas is almost upon us and Kevin stated that he might be able to run his evil plans for this weekend.  He wasn't 100% positive, but he said he needed to check on things.

If Kevin can't run, we should have Dwight running Star Wars and Terry running Iron Kingdoms.  If we don't get enough people to run anything, we can always play board games.

Matt is the only one I've heard say that he cannot make it this weekend and possibly next as well.  So, don't really plan on anything for his characters.

Who will be able to attend?

Saturday, December 16th

Ok, Kevin has stated that he will not be able to run his game this Saturday  Maybe the following Saturday, but, that is the 23rd and some of our players will probably be home for the holidays.  So, that would mean that Matt, Rob and possibly Dwight will not be around and that would just leave Terry, Curtis and myself, which isn't much of a team to run through some heavy stuff.

As for this Saturday, Terry mentioned that he would like for Dwight to start his Star Wars campaign.  I'm still not sure 500 credits is enough to get any kind of gear.  At least with D&D/Pathfinder, gear is priced low enough that you can get a weapon, armor, probably another weapon or two and then minor gear (backpack, waterskins, flint & steel, pouches, etc).  However, with Edge of the Empire, here is the pricelist for some pistols:

Holdout Blaster - 200 credits
Light Blaster Pistol - 300 credits
Blaster Pistol - 400 credits
Heavy Blaster Pistol - 700 credits

And lets not even get into blaster rifles, they are way too expensive.  Now, armor:

Adverse Environment Gear - 500 credits
Heavy Clothing - 50 credits
Padded Armor - 500 credits

And that is just what can be purchased with 500 credits.  There are several more, but they are way outside our purchasing price of 500 credits.  Now for some standard gear:

Handheld Comlink (short range) - 25 credits
Electrobinoculars - 250 credits
General Purpose Scanner - 500 credits
Hand Scanner - 100 credits
Emergency Medpac - 100 credits
Medpac - 400 credits
Stimpack - 25 credits
Slicer Gear - 500 credits
Backpack - 50 credits
Climbing Gear - 50 credits
Datapad - 75 credits
Emergency Repair Patch - 25 credits each
Extra Reloads (blaster weapons) - 25 credits each
Fusion Lantern - 150 credits
Tool Kit - 350 credits
Utility Belt - 25 credits.

And lets not even get into how much a multi-person starship would cost.  I can guarantee it is a LOT more than 500 credits.

So buying gear is very expensive with just 500 credits to spend.

Zombies Make Poor Minions

Zombies make excellent cannon fodder, but very poor minions.  Why do you ask?  Let's see.  One they require directions for every little action, or else they just stand there.  Two, they have a tendency to start fires,  usually by acciden.  Three, things keep dropping in their prescence; dodging falling containers of dog food is no fun and potentially lethal.  And four, absolutely no sense of humor.   So do yourself a favor, never hire discount zombies to work for you.

And that preceding paragraph has nothing to do with Pathfinder, but real life instead.   Two and a half more weeks, just two and a half more weeks I have to keep reminding myself.  On the plus side, this means I am SO looking forward Pathfinder this Saturday.  So yes, I'm back this weekend abuse your PC's, err, run Pathfinder.  The party is ready to enter the mysterious wizard's tower in search of the missing body of the android Casandalee.  The PC's need the vital info hidden in the androids memory, but need to defeat the denizens of the tower first.  Who will be there this Sat??
