  1. Science Fiction Bokhandeln (bookstore) in Gothenburg. You can see the availability here: https://www.sfbok.se/produkt/collapse-of-the-republic-194753 To have a book not available for post order or in the other cities is super unusual. I wonder if they made a super special deal to have the book exclusively in Gothenburg or if it was a mistake.
  2. I wasn't expecting this to be out in a store here I Sweden but it sure was a welcoming surprise. The classes feel more advanced and I'm not sure if these are okay for an early-era of the clone wars. I don't remember which page it was but they had one piece of artwork that looked really bad/lazy. The one with an AT-TE and the three stock footages of clone troopers near it's legs. I felt that one was very jarring.
  3. Clone Wars ships. I've been waiting for so long for them to announce it yet. With the release of Clone Wars for Legion, my hopes are high. But mostly because of the various CIS naval ships since the Republic really don't have as many or varied. They are in a bit of same problem with Empire: a bunch of triangles. CIS, however, I would die for to own. Sequel era ships are not as interesting to me.
  4. Is the female officer on the front cover not an actual miniature?
  5. Our Republic wasn't corrupt at all. Mostly because I didn't understand what it meant for something to be corrupt. So as a GM at age 16 leading this group, the missions for the Republic were very straightforward and the government was 100% good. Today I would play it a lot different.
  6. One can only hope that is their plan. But even if they would make a part 2 I doubt it would have much separatist contents. Because they are "the bad guys". But yes, of course I agree that the existing material would be enough to portray them. I would argue that every class except the Jedi classes are not necessary with that same argument. Why I am a bit mopey about this is because they talk so big about how much of a struggle it is from both sides, the whole "heroes on both sides", but they clearly are favoring one; the atypical good guys Reps and showering them with classes and lore and goodness. This is also sad because there are material today from the show to portray the CIS as more than villains. Heck, there is an episode with the same name on it. They want to leave a government they believe is corrupt and faulty, not very different from the rebels in later times. In don't like the "branded classes" such as Republic Representative or Retired Clone Trooper. Because that implies there is a very small nisch of what that character has to be. They could easily just remove that. The retired clone trooper could just be "Retired Soldier", giving room for the character to be a retired clone, militiaman, separatist (organic or otherwise), senate commando, etc. But no, you have to be human and you have to be a clone. But the GM can easily just do that themselves without doing it official. I know. I love this game and franchise so that is why I care.
  7. "Heroes on both sides", but mostly one side. The Geonosian feels like the one odd out. I mean, the other three it is more believable within the line of being a republican. The umbaran weren't Separatists until later in the war and can fittingly be a republic representative. But the Geonosian? Yeah, sure, it's the "scavenger". Perfect. Else it opens up the door of weird fanfiction territory. "My character is Nick Nack. He was a Geonosian worker before the clone wars. He hated being a low-class worker so he fled and joined the secret clone training program and became a Clone Trooper with custom made armor just for him. But he eventually got removed, which upset him very much, so he formed a one-man union as a republic representative for Geonosians right to fight for the republic." Or he became a Jedi, although there had never been a Force using Geonosian reported but I guess that is plausible. But then I think they should've chosen a more fitting separatists species for that like Koorivar. Or heck, a Zygerrian could fit better with all factions as it could be Jedi, scoundrel or separatist.
  8. And new universal classes which two are Republic types. I had hoped for more separatist-oriented classes.
  9. I don't play Legion but sweet lord would I love to have those Death Trooper squad.
  10. The link doesn't work. What exactly was the thing you hated? What did you add with a triumph during GtA? EDIT: nevermind, it works. ---- Like the last poster, any other news or updates available? I like the rules you have created and I am gonna try them in my new campaign.
  11. All your responses have been an amazing help. I have been a bit busy lately but I'm feeling very motivated to start off my campaign soon. I will let ya know how it goes once I kick it off! Now, for perhaps a random question... What's up with the fashion in clothing in the Star Wars universe at this time? Between the Great Sith War and the Mandalorian Wars there is gap of 30 years. While googling around for ideas and pics I can't help but to notice how more primitive-looking it looked back then compared to later. In such a small amount of time, even. Can anyone explain why they suddenly stopped roaming around with classical fashion (spears & axes, tunics/robes, dresses, and funny hats) and turned into a bit more modern clothing (kinda) in only 30 years? Was there some kind of fashion revolution going on? Was this only a Krath dressing thing or did the whole galaxy do this? I know that the Great Sith War comics have more of a fantasy-theme to it while later era are more kotor'ish with armors and pants. Or am I only imagining things? Did the artwork change so it's not as noticeable anymore? This is kinda important because I've got some ideas of the PCs investigating an old wreckage from the last war. But it's also slightly morbid curiosity from my part because nowhere does this seem to be addressed at all. Plus one of the players wondered if their character's parents or grandparents would still go around in those classical 80's heroes clothing (think He-Man).
  12. I posted this question from 2015. The Free Running and Improved Free Running talents didn't exist back then.
  13. I know, I know... It was just a remark of my opinion. In contrast, Dawn of Rebellion sounds so much more powerful. But I guess "Clone Wars" is too direct of a name.
