So with GenCon coming up, it's hard not to imagine that we'll soon be gifted with the final Beta in the original trilogy, Force and Destiny. We will all finally be able to satisfy our force-sensitive brothers and sisters, allowing them to pursue the path to becoming jedi knights (or sith lords) that has thus far eluded us all. Having anticipated this for some months now, I can't help but to think of those wonderful months after Force and Destiny officially releases, perhaps each month filled with a supplement or adventure for each of the three core systems.
That will surely be an exciting time, but I've thought of a time even further down the road, a couple of years further. When all the careers and specializations have been accounted for, when the basic grit of each system has been satisfied, and when we still want more. Will we find ourselves in a similar position to how we felt before the prequel films' releases, wanting more Star Wars stories and settings and adventures?
I know that I could keep playing EotE/AoR/F&D until my core books were tattered messes, though I would still like to see FFG continue with such great skill at recreating the vast tapestry that Star Wars has become and take it to even further detail. Is there a possibility that they could consider a Clone Wars Core system? A Dark Times? The Old Republic?
Once Episode VII releases, we will all have a clearer picture and understanding of what happens after RotJ, especially with the EU relegated to Legends now. The big picture that is Star Wars in epic widescreen detail soon will have new opportunities for us to adventure within but will it only be through the mind's eye of a few brilliant GMs who have estimated their best resources to stat out these exciting eras of galactic history? Or perhaps might we hope that FFG would see an opportunity to expand on their wonderful telling of the galaxy's "lesser known" stories and mythological heroes.
If FFG someday announced that they were making a core rulebook set during another era of galactic history, which era do you want to see the most or think would work the best?
