Hey everyone! That thread subject may be a little misleading but I have some good news for everyone! We at the Online Journal (http://starwars-rpg.net/journal/) are proud to present to you, two more fine additions to our collection of Web Features. The Starship Challenge (also available here on swrpgnetwork.com), written here on the holonet by many of you fine fans! Here's a note from Ravager of Worlds, the lead designer on this project:

It started as a challenge to create a better 60,000 credit TIE Fighter. Soon followed the next generation of cheaper Star Destroyers… It grew into an entire community project. Inside are 30 concept starship designs from roughly a dozen fertile Star Wars community members. Whether your campaign is set in a “What if…” Star Wars universe or you are just curious what was on the drawing board before galactic events shifted industry concerns, this catalog of starships is for you.

The other, written by Shannon Farrell, is a set of Alternative Force Point Rules. Here's a few words from him about the project:

The computer game Knights of the Old Republic introduced Light Side Points as a potential d20 game mechanic. Since many have disliked the difficulties in using Dark Side Points for bookkeeping and Force Points for game mechanics. Something didn't seem balanced. Therefore, I tried to sort that out with this Alternative Force Point System. As the D6 system actually already seems to take most of this into effect, the rules presented primarily work for d20. Naturally, not everyone will enjoy this system nor think it perfect. Gamemasters make the final decision, but for those looking for a possible alternative, take a look inside!
