With stay on target being announced officially, I'm waiting for the following books:

They came from behind

Look at the size of that thing!

I can hold it!

You came in that thing?

Someone wants to see you.......

 

She can't take it!

 

I don't know how that got in there?

 

 

Pull out, you're not doing any good back there.

 

 

Almost there ....

 

Got the Smuggle book "Yah?  I can imagine quite a bit....."

Okay, now that the official announcement is out...

 

I was offered a chance to play-test this, and can say that the material was quite a lot of fun.  The official announcement covers the specializations and careers, and I honestly think that there's plenty of material in there that will have even the EotE characters eager to add this book into their games.  I almost posted this last week, but figured I'd wait for the official word to come out before saying anything.

I really like how FFG is approaching the tests - grabbing folks from the community who have generally been helpful, friendly, and active. Not sure their NDA approach but clearly it is working; lots of this stuff seems to have no leaks prior to announcement.

The advantage to using fans to playtest is that they know if they break NDA, they won't get to do it again. Because they are fans, they really really really want to see stuff early again. I think it mostly polices itself that way.

So anyone have any theories on what new ships we'll be seeing in this?

 

I'm personally hoping for some dedicated carrier capships (The Quasar Fire and Neutron Star Bulk Cruiser carrier conversions for the Alliance, and Escort Carriers for the Empire.) and some carrier focused warships (Liberator Cruisers for the Alliance, Secutor class Star Destroyers for the Imps, and Venators for both) but some new carriers would be very nice.

 

Starfighter wise I would love to see T-Wings, R-41s, Cutlass-9s, hyper equipped Z-95s, and Z-95 Trainers for the Alliance, TIE Opressors, Tie Agressors, TIE Phantoms, and I-7 Howlrunners for the Imps, and maybe some of the fighters usually viewed as independent aligned like Novaswords, Razors, and TL-118 Starhammers for the Rigger specialization. And of course all new Starfighter models would be great as well.

It's really refreshing to see FFG engage with its fans and the boards, and to trust the play-testers to 'play nicely' with things like NDA's.

 

Kudos to everyone who helped write or playtest the new books.

Well, a pity for Maelora that they picked not-so-pretty species again (I also want to see Togruta, for example), but who would have guessed these three? Chadra-Fan, Dressellian, and Xexto - really cool and I can't wait for the artwork (species and otherwise), the teasers look fantastic.

That's pretty much true with any major RPG company.

 

You break the NDA, say hello to legal troubles as well as kissing any chance to get sneak peaks at new material good bye.

How about "I'd just as soon kiss a wookiee" for the kashyyk source book?
