star wars saga tabletop RPG filter: new to the game and having a blast, but we're confused about a couple of things (enemy attack rolls & character upkeep).
first is the calculation of an NPC's attack roll. the stats for NPC's as found in the back of the saga edition core rulebook don't specify whether the NPC has any ability modifiers. using the CL 1 stormtrooper as an example, the dexterity score given is 11, which should net him a small dexterity modifier but none is listed (nor are any other modifiers). when rolling for his attack, do we add his base attack? are we expected to calculate and apply a dexterity modifier for him?
we're also confused as to what the numbers next to the NPC's weapon mean. for the stormtrooper, it says "blaster rifle +4 (3d8)"; what exactly does the +4 represent? do we add that to his attack roll or do his damage?
lastly is the cost of character upkeep. there is a table in the rulebook which lists the cost of monthly upkeep (based on varying degrees of affluence) and there is some passing mention of food, but the rules don't go into any more detail about character maintenance/upkeep. are there hard rules about these things that we are missing, or are these generally supplemented by house rules?
thanks for any help!
