And after a short break for personal reasons (a death in the family), we reach the final part of Dark Empire, with our review of Dark Empire 6: The Fate of a Galaxy. And today we've added Deppo (Human Imperial Technician) to the Star Wars D/6 Characters Section, Kuat Drive Yards A-9 Vigilance Interceptor to the Star Wars D/6 Starships Section, Hydrospeare Corporation AQ-5 Waveskimmer, & SedriMotors Ltd. Amphibion to the Star Wars D/6 Vehicles Section, & Byss to the Star Wars D/6 Planets & Places Section of the Site.
Many of these are based on the Dark Empire Sourcebook by West End Games, but in some places I've varied quite a bit from what they created. For example the Waveskimmer had Light Blaster Cannons which did 2D Walker Scale damage, I dropped those to Speeder Scale and increased the damage, so that they can hit targets more easily, making them not particularly more damaging, but far more useful. And I found the stats for Deppo, an engineer who in just one frame of the comics, the sourcebook gave him skills in the 10D range. I lowered them, as although he is described as a skilled engineer there's nothing to say that he's the best in the entire sector (as 10D is described in the Star Wars rulebook).
Although I'm working my way through Dark Empire at the moment, I read the first issue of the High Republic comic series yesterday, and thought it might be interesting to jump over to that series just as a one off, to see what's happening in Lucasfilms new time period.
