X-wing miniatures, format: Top gun

After playing in a few small scale dogfights I got the idea for a tournament format that would be quick and hopefully fun. The working name is 'Top gun'.

Each player has exactly two ships. One ship must be piloted by a named unique pilot, this is your Top gun. The second ship must have a non-unique pilot, this is your Wing man.

Format can be played with 50,75,100,150 points with any number of objectives.
Including kings (objective is to destroy your opponent's Top gun).

A second idea to go along with this is scenario based challenges for your Top gun team. Escort a bombing run, get past a tie swarm, or maybe even navigate a moving asteroid field. This is still a work in progress.

Vampire Descriptor (Cypher system)

I know everyone has a different idea about how a vampire should be stated up. This is my take on a vampire by way of descriptor.

Vampire

Unnatural grace: +2 Speed pool.
Unnatural strength: +2 Might pool

Skill: Trained in all speed defense.
Skill: Trained in all aspects of influence and persuasion in social situations.
Skill: Trained in all might defense.

Inability: Vampires have an adversion to direct sunlight. While in sunlight vampires have no edge when spending for extra effort.

Initial link to the starting adventure:
1. You are in love/infatuated with a member of the party. (do they know?)
2. There is a connection to your past, some aspect of the adventure is part of your own history (was it before or after your change?)
3. You have seen coming events in your sleep. You are connected to some aspect that even you might not understand.
