There is a copy on ebay right now for $30 + $20 for shipping, so id say thats a little steep, if I could find it for $30 including shipping id probably grab it.
We played through the intro adventure and we'd like to make our own characters before playing long arm of the hutt. I plan on buying the full version when it comes out and was thinking I could use the beta rules as a second book for making characters but if there will be a bunch of erratta to print off and differences in the classes and abilities Im not going to bother with the beta.
I didnt follow the whole beta process so I just wanted someones opinion who had.
Looks like we'll have to stick with the pregens until spring.
