  1. It's my favorite of the 3 SG series I've seen. (I keep seeing references to Incursion, but have never seen it) Some of my favorite actors, too - Ming Na Wen, Lou Diamond Philips... and the incredible job of Jamil Walker Smith as the loyal but psychotic MSgt Greer... And, overall, a main cast that was operating at a very good level of characterization. Hell the Chloe-Eli-LtScott-Gin thing...
  2. Welcome, fellow denizen of Oregon!
  3. That should make one hotter, not colder. But yes, Carter does mention being torn apart and transmitted. Note that the iris prevents reintegration at the throat; it's mentioned that the atoms cannot be reformed because of it. It being television, it's not entirely self-consistent.
  4. That would be utterly silly. My headcanon is that they adjusted the dialing computer to make the trip better targeted.
  5. The big changes, in a nutshell: Lots more ranged weapons, much higher starting HP, only one unified roll mechanic for a number of special cases of physical opposed rolls, a large scale combat system, a much smaller experience point total needed to go up, classes end at 5th level, everyone simply buys feats after that. Inspiration has a different mechanic and use. Several social interaction systems abstract out certain facets, and you can use the "fortune in the middle" mode - state the goal, roll the dice, then narrate the discussion/actions appropriately to the roll. The biggest add is the Tension Die - when things are tensest, it's a d12 - many abilities use the Tension die. Grab the beta, from the files section... it will seem fairly familiar, and most of the mechanics are the same.
  6. Count me in the "Either Adv First Aid or Organ Targeting"...
  7. The scout doesn't read as a military scout. It reads as a cross between Ronin Dax and Daniel Boone.
  8. How "new" are you? Ever played an RPG? Ever played D&D 5th Edition? If you've zero roleplaying experience, you need different help than if you're a D&D player, and different further still if you're an experienced GM.
  9. Note that there are some major unfilled holes in it. Like vacuum, and many of the NPC tables. The Kickstarter page has a link to the quickplay, as well, and it has the firefight rules (larger grids, but same time scale, some other interesting bits.). It, also has a lot of holes... mostly the same ones. As it is right now, the combination of those two is a very playable game.
  10. It comes in real handy for or against jaffa...because the ma'tok is only fireable every other round, so the tend to shoot and close, then beat to death...
  11. As an example... My group decided to be a season 1 setting, with all the PCs being USAF. We have the captain being a Jet Jock - who served under O'Neill in 1993-1994. Soldier the academy grad who spent his 2 years of 2nd lieutenant at NASA, first as a SR71 pilot in training, then at the Antarctic Mars Simulation. (Engineer, Artificial BG) a Pathfinder/Special Recon SSgt, (Scout) A medic SSgt. (Medic) A civil service PhD geologist/geographer specializing in extreme environments biospheres. (Scientist)
  12. near Corvallis, Oregon, USA. Grew up in Anchorage, Alaska, USA.
