Did his backpack have jets?

I would think that if he was the basterd love child of them, he would be more finesse about it, like rocket boots.

I've never connected "Han Solo" with "finesse" before.

Sure, anyone that can wear a blaster on his thigh and fly a ship like the flacon must have finesse, Lando does too onlly cus he has a cape!

There was nothing finesse about this guy at all. He'd get offered a job and say "okay" without asking what it was we were doing, what we were delivering, where we were delivering it to. This happened about 4 times. The fact that the GM encouraged this behavior and smacked down the other characters who were (understandably) unhappy with this practice didn't help matters any. He practically creamed himself at the thought of carrying spice like Han Solo did and he kept trying to do a Kessel Run as well (even when our ship was so bad that trying the run would have gotten us killed). His first reaction into running into someone is to ask them for a job or shoot them with his super tweaked out heavy pistol. He didn't have jets (nor a Vette), but that's just because the GM wouldn't let him have one.

He was our pilot, yet didn't want to learn vehicle combat stuff or any of the other rules, for that matter. He had to be walked through nearly every action he did, even though this was basically d20 and not exactly rocket science. So when he went back to WoW, I was not unhappy.
A great ninja move is like great jazz. Nobody is aware of it and anyone who saw it live is now dead.

I guess my previous response to why I gave was real generalized and full of vague vagaries.
Because after about three weeks of my (well previously my) DnD campaign not getting played, I discovered that I game because in a game well you can do anything that you fucking want, and get the experience (points) of doing said thing without having or being able to do it.

For instance I can't really touch a doorframe and suddenly have visions of the forty billion other fucknuts who have touched the same doorframe. And I can't shoot lazers out of my eyes irl either. Although immersion is real important to me as a gamer, I kind of abstain from LARPing but I that hasn't stopped me from bringing in awesome props for my sessions, like Flagos to drink beer from or amulets that I make from belt buckles I get off ebay.

Oh yeah and i love wizards and fairy bullshit.
I wish I was Tom.

Granted, you are now Tom.

of course, you've seen those animes where the character with the big sword cuts through an even bigger monster with one slice. same concept. that and its bulstered by pixie power, only thing that can trump pixie power is flux capacitor.
