I originally thought that I would use Attributes and Combat Abilities from the BoL rules unchanged. Attributes I will use unchanged but the post I reproduced here from the RPG.net thread has me reevaluating my intentions towards Combat Abilities.
Combining Brawling and Melee and adding a Pilot or maybe Starship, Vehicle or Gunnery ability has an appeal. Someone else on the 33rd post of original thread suggested Close Combat, Blaster, Pilot and Defense.
Would the Ranged ability cover starship combat? Or should that only be used for personal combat? Should a Pilot or Gunner career cover this? Usually careers aren't used in combat.
What do you think?
