And I believe that the original human population of Coruscant was a colony that eventually drove the native inhabitants off-world though where the colonists came from has never been established IMO.

Weequay can communicate with each other by pheromones.

With the limit that they can only communicate with others from their own clan. I find the ability to be downright useless unless two players both decide to make Weequay characters.

Seriously? The Elephant-Faced Sloths? I can think of Dozens I would have rather seen. Like other folks, I was hoping for Bith.

(Prince Xizor was in TCW cartoons, thus they are an official, canon, species)

 

Was Xizor in The Clone Wars? I've seen 'em all, and I don't seem to remember that...

I dont think that was Xizor:

 

Next, we got the clip that was pure “Holy crap” fan bait, beginning with the reveal that we will be going to Mustafar in Season 5 and on that infamous lava planet, we’d meet the Falleen and Black Sun, the crime group first introduced in Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire. Filoni cautioned we wouldn’t meet that story’s villain, Xizor, but we did see art of Falleen wearing the distinctive hairstyle and type of clothing Xizor is known for.

 

An interview from IGN says otherwise. . . .

It says that in the write up for the species, but in the actual mechanic it doesn't mention it as a limiting factor.  I've been allowing PCs to communicate freely with NPCs without the clan designator.  Has there been an errata on it, or FAQ clarification somewhere?


Be well,

I seem to recall him in there... an episode with The Black Sun in it.. May not have been him though. Boba/Bossk/Sing, a train - something like the old west movies, with the train robbery,  where the bounty hunters were trying to get something off the train.

In either case, a Falleen was in the series, thus official canon.  About 2/3rds the way down THIS link is a picture of him.  No clue how to post pictures in this board. 


Be well,

With the falleen, pykes, i'd really like to see a suns of fortune book about the non hutt cartels.
You're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of EU.

Why do I feel like these races were picked because someone wanted to add their mark on the RPG universe and not because they were wanted by players? 

 

Either that or they are running out of races that haven't been slated for FaD.

So Kaosoe, Maelora, how do you guys feel about the Sakiyan in the Hutts book? The young Sakiyan lady sure seems to be bringing a lot of aesthetics to the book.

That's a very flattering picture. My Knowledge (EU) skill is not as good as many here on this board, so up until yesterday, I had not heard of the Sakiyan or Gank*. I am looking forward to getting this book and learning about them.

 

 

Not to drudge up the old debate, but I largely don't have a problem with unusual species. It's just that my personal wishlist has a bit of theme.

 

Most of the species I was interested in were in Force and Destiny, so bring on the unusual aliens.

 

*Gank sounds like something from Mass Effect.

"Aesthetics"?

Is that what lonely young geek males are calling it these days?

Not lonely, not male, and definitely not young :)

 

Geek? Yeah, but then I was geeky long before it was trendy to be so...

I only know them from the domed head, black-skinned guy to be honest. The one in the preview looks cute, but she doesn't seem to be the norm for her race, from other pictures.  At least it's a vague step forward.

 

Keith, my argument wasn't that we shouldn't have wacky species; it was that things seemed to be unbalanced towards 'background' aliens instead of the ones we see with speaking parts in the various SW media.

 

But then I guessed (correctly) they were saving Togruta, Mirialans, Zabrak etc for F&D.

 

I'm a tad surprised to see playable Hutts. They seem an odd choice for Fringe adventurers, both thematically and in practise (can't see how they can climb, run, or pretty much do any adventuring activity, to be honest).

The same can be said for many droids too.

Heh, probably one of the worst species-specific skills ever.

 

Seriously? The Elephant-Faced Sloths? I can think of Dozens I would have rather seen. Like other folks, I was hoping for Bith.

They'd probably sort of fit in as Bounty Hunters or something maybe, but not colonists

 

All's said and done, the book delivered quite a lot of useful material otherwise I thought.

The pheromone communication of the Weequay is actually pretty awesome if you happen to have multiple Weequay PCs and/or allied Weequay NPCs.
