Okay. Let me start by saying that I've run a few sessions of the Beta so far (one of which, you can actually listen to on the Order 66 Podcast). One of the things I've enjoyed about Edge of the Empire is that it's quite easy for a character to DROP. It can happen easily in one solid hit, actually.
Mind you "drop" is very different from "DEAD". And this isn't a lethal system by any stretch.
As such, I see the need for stimpacks. And I'm fine with their mechanical use.
I just have a serious problem with the name and flavor. Sheesh… I know this is nit-picky. But we don't see stimpacks hardly ANYWHERE in the Star Wars universe. Ever. KotOR had stimpaks/stim-shots, as they're a "part" of a medpac. But we don't see them anywhere else. Why didn't the Empire use them? Or the Rebellion? I just don't feel that the flavor a heroic character jamming themselves with a needle to get stims and healing is very "Star Wars". Am I alone in this?
Again - I'm fine with the mechanic: a quick healing option that restores less and less each time its used in a day. Got it! On board with it! But can we just call it a "Medpac" and be done with it? Maybe call the current version of a medpac a "Med Kit" or somesuch (the full blown first aid kit that lets you do complex medicine on the fly)?
It seems like such a small change, but it really gnaws at me from a flavor perspective. [shrug]
