I'm new to this game and the only thing I seem to be able to do is travelling.
I have some questions :
- Is there a Jedi master on each planet who can tell me if I have the force ine me?
- Is there a way to make money other than join a group or faction?
- What can I do with a NPC that I just hired? (she's a merchant)
- Can we use guns on our ships?
- What can you tell me more about how to use a planet grid?
2: Yes, there are other ways. You can buy stuff from production factions and sell them for a slightly higher price, transport items for people, gamble, win raffles, etc. I can't give you a complete list, there's a lot of ways.
3: Npcs page in rules.
4: Not right now, they are not implemented. In the future, most likely.
5: The rules are a good source of information for almost everything in the Combine.
In response to the question about the Force, let me expand upon it:
You will need to be tested by an existing Force Aware individual who has trained in the appropriate power. You will have to find one using IC means, but most factions will either have some agreement to have their members tested periodically, or have a faction leader who knows who to put you in touch with.
Joining a faction is probably the best way to get started in this game, although you hinted at not wanting to do so.
"May the Grace of Ara go with you, and His Vengeance be wrought upon your enemies."
Some people hold raffles where if you get lucky, you might win the prize. There's also other gambling games that people come up with that you can win money in, too. You can find the list of raffles/games by clicking the RPG Centre, scrolling down, and clicking on the Gambling Hut.
The movement issues sound like the recent travel bug(?), I imagine eet's fixed by now? :)
“How can I restart, I don't like my skills. I also can't die, stuck on a planet.”
You can't restart as such, unless your character dies (you're only permitted one character/account). To kill your character you need to either be arrested & executed by someone (if you're in a faction they can usually do this for you if you want to respawn), or fly your ship into a sun. Obviously you won't be able to do the latter as you say you're on a planet. :/
Once dead you will need to wait 3 weeks before you can create a new character though, so be certain eet's what ya wanna do. My skills aren't perfect either, and in hindsight I coulda made a much better character - but such shortcomings are kinda cool in a character aspect imo - nobody's perfect, ayah.
