Greetings, GamerNation!

We at the Order 66 Podcast were tickled pink to be on-hand at GenCon this year for the beta release announcement, and were determined to get a show in about it as soon as possible.  Thankfully, friend of the show (and a working developer for every edition of a Star Wars RPG ever produced, including Edge), Sterling Hershey, was gracious enough to agree to be on hand to answer questions about the beta, and it's development.

Surprised were we, when we then got an email from Jason (Jay) Little, Lead Designer for FFG's Star Wars RPG (among many other things…), asking to join in the fun!  What follows is 3 hours of epic discussion about the game, it's design, and some of the cooler features it brings to the table.  We asked… they answered.

If you'd like to listen, you can download Episode 163 of the Order 66 Podcast from iTunes, or directly from our feed:  

And if you'd like to head directly to the Order 66 Podcast forums to discuss the episode, please do!  http://www.d20radio....php?f=1&t=10969

 

A huge thank you to both Jay and Sterling for their time and dedication on this product, and for making this effort to keep the fans in the loop, and informed!

 

 

Peace, Love, and Good Gaming.

GMC

I tried listening to the direct download and via iTunes, but the podcast becomes garbled when you start talking about Destiny Points on both files. It clears up around when you start talking about Obligations. Overall, lots of good information, even if its hard to understand parts of it.

 Hi. Great podcast! I did have some trouble hearing some of it though too but overall it was packed with information. Well done.

I was wondering if anyone thought about doing a live session like they do for WHFRP 3ed (Reckless Dice Podcast) It really helped me and my players with Warhammer 3rd Edition.

Just a thought.

We had 5 peeps on Skype, and it was throwing shoes all NIGHT.    Sorry about that, guys.  It happens… not often.  But it happens.

So - while we're going to be using Order 66 as a temporary vehicle for Edge information, a whole new podcast is in the works.  When it kicks off, it will DEFINITELY include live play of the beta.

 Excellent. Looking forward to hearing your guys' experience. Are you running the Crates of Krayts adventure or something else?

I seriously thought about it - but frankly, I don't want to spoil that adventure for any listeners who haven't run it.  So no.    Sterling Hershey wrote it, and he's a buddy of mine, and I KNOW it's a good adventure… so that's a really hard call to make.

Instead, I'm doing something rather intentional (and maybe foolish).  I'm deliberately spending only 20 min of GM prep on this game.  Snagging some stat blocks and making high-point notes about the story flow.  I really want to stress test this on GM prep (one of the supposed benefits of the system).

This is exactly what I wanted to hear.  This way I can still run Crates of Krayts even after encouraging my players to listen to the cast.  Thank you!

Listening currently.   Pretty good, so far.   Glad "we" have something new to pod about.
