  1. On page 99, the entry for Improved Terrify might have a template issue. The color for the portion of the box that indicates it is a Force talent doesn't match the rest of the box.
  2. If 3D printing is a viable option for you, there's a free model available on Thingiverse.
  3. The only way to guarantee you're getting the latest printing, then, is to order directly from FFG. They'll always have the latest printing. If you order from Amazon or another online retailer, there's no way to know which printing they have unless you have someone at the company look for you. (I've done this once or twice with Miniature Market.) In case anyone is curious, the man who did the cover of the Force and Destiny Core Rulebook is named Darren Tan. Here's his DeviantArt page.
  4. There are currently three printings of the Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook. The first printing has an insert and the second and third printings have the insert included in the book itself. If you want to make sure you've got the latest printing, (as of 29 July, 2015) make sure you get the one with the Disney logo on the back and the code "S14205" in the bottom right corner of the UPC area. Many errors and typos have been corrected, though not 100% of them.
  5. Spoke with someone at Miniature Market today. He told me that they're expecting to have it in stock tomorrow.
  6. My FLGS's distributor has listed Tuesdsay, the 28th as their release date. It could arrive at the FLGS as late as Thursday, depending on shipping schedules. I've not heard anything credible that would indicate that distributors are sitting on the book until after GenCon, especially given that The War Store is already listing Force and Destiny as "in stock." It sounds like nothing more than a silly rumor.
  7. I noticed that right away. I always assumed that he was wearing a different pair of pants that day. Luke earns the Corellian Blood Stripe Second Class for his exploits at the Battle of Yavin (check out the final scenes of A New Hope again) but he never wears them again for the rest of the Trilogy.
  8. If you think that Hutt's big, check out the one on page 44 of Lords of Nal Hutta. Oh wow... I never noticed that! Could be Boba Fett flying across the Sarlacc, just prior to the greatest upset in fandom history. From where I'm sitting, the art looks more like it's depicting the scene from The Mandalorian Armor where Fett escapes the Sarlacc. Note the pitting on his armor- one of the things the novel described was pitting and scarring on his armor plates due to the acidic digestive juices of the Sarlacc. The most significant art "gaffe" I've discovered is the use of the wrong Aurebesh characters in the Force Sensitive Exile talent tree on page 276. (It reads Force Shensitive Exile instead.) The core rulebook is in its third printing, and they still haven't fixed it.
  9. He's referring to this chart here: It's an artifact from the Edge of the Empire Beta, (page 176) and was removed prior to the publication of the Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook. As early as that was in the development of the game (back when characters were limited to three specializations) it is probably safe to assume that it is no longer an accurate or useful means of measuring Force power within the game. While I won't speculate as to why the designers elected not to place the chart in the final product, I'm sure there was a reason it was removed.
  10. That's possible, yes, but that's going to take a lot more time than simply rolling the dice, adding a number, and handing out the appropriate card. It also means not shuffling the deck prior to receiving a critical injury, building a deck specifically for the critical injury, and then unshuffling afterwards. It also makes it impossible for two characters to receive the same critical injury. Obviously, if your group prefers that method, then go for it. I just wouldn't do it at my table.
  11. Right now I'm trying to figure out the best way to host the table, so people can just download it from my signature. If you need it sooner than that, just shoot me PM with your email address, and I'll send it right over.
  12. Owen and Beru Lars were a couple of dirt farmers in a back-sand stretch of Tatooine. Their property was littered with droids in various states of function, and their teenage nephew entertained himself by killing animals and racing souped up speeders. You don't get much more hillbilly than that.
  13. I used mine for the first time in a session I was GMing last night. They were useful, because I could read the critical injury from the chart on the back of the GM screen and simply hand the player a card with the details, rather than waiting for the player to write down the details of the critical injury on a character sheet. The art is entertaining. Are they necessary? No, but I've found them to be a convenience. As a side note, I wouldn't draw them randomly. Doing so would make it nearly impossible to combine multiple crits or ranks of Vicious and Lethal Blows.
  14. These questions came up in another topic, so I decided to fire off a question for rules clarification. The original questions are as follows: The response from Sam Stewart is as follows:
  15. I picked up a set of each of the Adversary Decks when they first came out. They've since seen use in every game I've GMed or played in. In addition to their obvious use as on-the-fly opponents, they're also helpful for comparison purposes when building your own NPC adversaries. I would highly recommend them.
  16. Send me a PM with your email address and I'll shoot it over to you.
  17. I have received books with defects from FFG before. If you let Customer Service know, they'll send you a free replacement. Here's the link to their Damaged/Missing Components Form. It's happened at least twice for me, and they've never required me to send the original book back. They have very good customer service.
  18. Oh, sure thing! Caamasi are the most interesting of the new species, in my opinion. They start with one rank in either Charm or Discipline. Additionally, they have the ability to form Memnis. A Memnii is a special type of memory of a significant or traumatic event that a Caamasi can recall perfectly at any time, or share with another Caamasi or Force sensitive. Nemoidians start with one rank in either Deception or Negotiation. Gossams start with one rank in Deception. They're also considered Silhouette 0 creatures.
  19. Sorry about the delayed responses, guys. Been a crazy week. Let's get started: Good question. No starfighters, and the closest we get to a capital ship is the J-Type Diplomatic Barge. There is, however, a Silhouette 5 landspeeder called the HA-5 Aerial Retreat. There aren't any rules "expansions," per se, but there is quite a bit of space dedicated to social encounters, and suggestions on how to run them. Additionally, there are a bunch of new options for upgrading a base. I'm not going to post the full stats of the species, but base expansions are treated like upgrades. You simply buy them, or spend Contribution Rank to acquire them. Upgrades include: -Increased Core Focus -Enhanced Security -NPC Ally -Medical Facility -Hangar and Repair Bay -Armory -Training Facility -Laboratory -Command and Control Center -Research Library New weapons include a handful of blasters, (Military Holdout Blaster) a couple of really cool grenades (Merr-Sonn N-4 Noise Grenades, Sorosuub Wipe-3 Data-Purge Grenades) and a couple of interesting blades. For the weapons, there seems to be an emphasis on the non-lethal. Needle Gloves are scary. Armor includes a host of clothing, including "Banal Apparel," and "Noble Regalia." Most of it is very low Soak (or zero) but it's stuff you could wear in "civilized" locations. We also get a host of spy-gear, (Poisoner's Ring, Security Sweeper, Sound Dampener, etc.) a restraining bolt, and rules for new droids... like the 3PX series, and the LOM series, among others. First impressions are of a specialization that's built to undermine the morale of the enemy, while boosting the morale of allies. One particularly cool talent is "Bad Press," which allows the character to reduce the wound threshold of members of an enemy organization for the duration of the session. There's also a talent that can, upon successful completion of a Charm check, cause one of the PCs Duties to trigger, if none have triggered that session. It's a really interesting specialization, overall. I assume you know the Career skills, so I won't post them here. Advocate: Coercion, Deception, Negotiation, Vigilance Analyst: Computers, Knowledge (Education), Knowledge (Warfare), Perception Propagandist: Charm, Deception, Knowledge (Warfare), Perception So, the first thing I noticed is the incredible art. As usual, it's breathtaking, and I'm not being hyperbolic. It makes me interested in running a game with a Diplomat. (I've not had an opportunity to actually play in an Age of Rebellion campaign, and I'd like to try out Ace and Soldier first.) I'm still digesting and absorbing the book, though, and I plan to report back once I've had a chance to really go through it.
  20. Signature abilities are Diplomatic Solution and Unmatched Insight. For Diplomatic Solution, the player can flip two Destiny Points and make a Daunting Charm check to turn a combat encounter into a social encounter. For Unmatched Insight, the character may spend two destiny points to immediately become aware of the emotional states and basic histories of up to three chosen participants. Particularly cool ships? Baudo Class Star Yacht J-Type Diplomatic Barge MC-18 Light Freighter Kappa-Class Shuttle
  21. Correct. The information contained in the booklet that was included in the first printing of Edge of the Empire was integrated into subsequent printings. There is no equivalent booklet for Age of Rebellion.
  22. Could be worse. Hutt Belly Dancers There, it's worse Worse than that? A hairless wookiee. There. Now you can't unsee it either.
  23. DeviantArt is a pretty great place to start. I'd also suggest checking out individual pages on Wookieepedia. There is also the Star Wars Artists Guild (SWAG). I know on DeviantArt and SWAG, (and probably a few other places) some of the artists are available to draw characters on commission. Ryan-Rhodes in particular does fantastic work, and is very reasonable.
  24. I've found that Crossfading is an extremely useful ability to have when transitioning music from one scene to the next. There are a few programs out there that do it, but one that I've found works very well is called "PlayerPro." What I'll do is pick out tracks from various Star Wars soundtracks beforehand and select songs for each scene I expect us to encounter. Video game soundtracks are excellent sources of music for "looping" purposes. When I want to transition to the next scene, I'll use crossfading so the players barely even notice that one song has ended and another started.
