What pattern? It's not like they're going in alphabetical order or anything.

 

My guess is they'll have a bunch of meetings and determine whatever they think is the right book to publish next.

Sorry, I don't really see the pattern still.

 

Are you saying that because the first two things released for Age of Rebellion are an Adventure and a Career book, that the AOR releases will necessarily follow the same structure as the releases for Edge of the Empire did?

No.
I am saying so far they are following the same pattern as they have done for edge. And yes i know it is not definitive.  But it is still a pattern. And a pattern is something you can use to get an educated guess.

I'm not sure two data points makes a pattern though. Still, anything could happen. We'll just find out whenever they announce whatever the next thing is for whatever game.

It is not 2 data points. It is 8 data points.

It looks like the start of a pattern to me.

 

EOTE:  Adventure > Splat > Region > Splat > Adventure > Splat...

AOR:  Adventure > Splat...

I'm probably the only one, but I'd love to see a book involving Separatist holdouts. Beyond the Rim was cool, but I want more now.

I would too. I would love to see some of the CIS ships in the FFG RPG especially ones we know of that never appeared on screen though some of their big guns, which were pretty much the only CIS capital ships you saw on screen outside of a few in video games, would be nice too

I'm still just impressed that Bounty Hunter and Smuggler weren't the first two career supplements off the presses for Edge. Don't get me wrong, I'm super pleased with the Explorer and Colonist books (Hired Guns are pretty Meh for me, but one of my players loves it) but I figured they'd rush out the "Han and Fett" career books first.

 

Seeing Aces come up as the first Age splat feels so natural to me.

 

Anyway, more on topic, I wouldn't be surprised if the next Edge book release was a more general rules supplement like Suns of Fortune. Maybe something dealing with the Core worlds? Bringing your fringe party to the civilized centers of the galaxy and making your way around the upper crust?

Suns of Fortune was about a sector in the Core Worlds. I hope that the next setting book (whether Edge or Age) covers something far from the Core Worlds. My hopes are still for Hutt Space or Corporate Sector for Edge and Bothan Space for Age.

I'd love a Coruscant book for any of the three CRB... However I think it would be more suitable for F&D.

I'm hoping for a shipwright spec when Mechanic comes but that would probably suit Engineer better then Mechanic. More detailed ship modding rules would be great though..

 

Mechanic is already pretty hard set on repair but I suppose it could fit, most people on the Outer Rim don't go to a shipyard, they go find a mechanic.

 

 

They have announced a Rigger spec for Stay On Target which seems to be focused on modding vehicles, if they are going to reprint it in EotE the Technician book would be the place for it.

If it doesn't make it into EotE, it could also be worked into AoR. The last of the holdouts ended up joining the rebellion.

YES - YES - YES!  There is so much background possible here. Whenever the Rebels com pain about the Empire, the Ex-Separatists just go "You see? That is EXACTLY what we complained about twenty years ago!"

 

Somebody mentioned this before, but it is a lot like the Browncoats from Firefly, if you look beyond the huge consortia like the Trade Federation and just look at the people of the small/unimportant fringe worlds.

 

Also the CIS had some great ships (like the Munificent) and - as some artwork illustrates - quite a few of them made it into Rebel hands, so I can also see a supplement on Separatist Hold-outs.

 

I'm still just impressed that Bounty Hunter and Smuggler weren't the first two career supplements off the presses for Edge. Don't get me wrong, I'm super pleased with the Explorer and Colonist books (Hired Guns are pretty Meh for me, but one of my players loves it) but I figured they'd rush out the "Han and Fett" career books first.

Yes, you are right, but with Stay on Target they want to get their new line to sell as well as the "established one" and they hold off on Bounty Hunter & Smuggler, because they are the most epic ones and the others sell better if BH and Smug are not yet available.

Well some of the Separatist holdouts joined the Alliance at least.  The Essential Guide to Warfare makes it clear that some holdouts did join the Alliance, and some loosely allied themselves with the Alliance (To formally join the Alliance the holdouts were required to publicly disavow the Separatist movement and cause, Something that many of those who still fighting for it when the Alliance formed weren't willing to do.) while other saw the Alliance as another enemy, and the section describing the Separatist holdouts in the AOR Core book fits with the above,

Not a suprise since the Alliance made it a big deal that they wanted to re-establish the Old Republic. Why should you help those new guys that want to restore your old enemy?

They did not hate the idea of the Republic. They hated the corruption. With the Rebellion they hope to rebuild the ideal.

Also, I feel like a lot of the dogma of the Separatists came from Dooku and his leadership. Dooku, of course, was Palpatine's apprentice and together they were fomenting civil war just so that they could rid the galaxy of the Jedi and put the Sith back on top.  Without Dooku's persuasion, the more rational of any surviving Seppie hold outs and supporters would certainly go along with restoring the Republic if they thought (or demanded) they would be a part of the new governing body.
