  1. Thanks
    DanteRotterdam got a reaction from the mercenary in The RPG lines are continuing! Pretty much just waiting for an official announcement at this point!   
    And again the divide between out opinions is super clear.
    Having this system move away from “the narrative” would be the absolute worst move possible for Edge to make. It is literally what makes this system unique and popular. 
    Oh, and Bad Motivator? Amazing.

    Meanwhile there has been a new rpg book announced last weekend and I totally glossed over it.

    At least you immediately make clear where you stand in this so-called division. 
    Isn’t it weird how the few people who argue there is this huge division are on one side of it?

    Not to be rude, but I am not sure anyone speaks for “us fans” here. As every topic here shows there are at least as many opinions as there are fans.

    keep up with what? the fact you keep ignoring huge parts of the rules to justify your complaint? OK. it is a bit disingenuous but ok.

    You seem to miss that your opinion is a complete outlier and that just about everyone who tries to game likes it. A lot. Including a lot of “more traditional gamers”.

    I don’t. I made a general statement concerning both self aggrandizing and overestimation of what it means to be a playtester.

    I could if I had said as much. I didn’t. 
    All I said that knowledge doesn’t equal mastery nor skill. I have no idea whether he uses the rules as they were intended, I also have no idea if he doesn’t. 
     
    Neither means he understands them. He might, he might not. I am not at his table. 
    Also having playtested parts of the game doesn’t mean you know the rules any better than someone who didn’t per definition. I am pretty sure that anyone on this page knows quite a bit about this system.
     I think calling Bad Motivator a bad akill because it is a player skill instead of a character skill shows, in my opinion, a complete misunderstanding of what the narrative system intends to do. It is a player skill and is intended to be. It (and many skills like it) are designed to have players add to the narrative of a session. In my opinion if you object to such a fundamental rule then you do not really understand the system all that well. Of course I don’t object to him disliking it but the wording of his objections make me question his knowledge/understanding of the system. Or disliking it for what it specifally sets out to do.

    That doesn’t mean you know them “better than most”.
    Also, knowing them and using them appropriately are two very different things.

    All I can talk about is what I read here, on rpg.net, my local gamestore and what I see on review aggregators. There is jo denying that the overall view of this line is very positive. Of course there are always people who dislike something (heck, The Shining was nominated for a golden raspberry) but denying that is a minority opinion is just obtuse.

    Not sure how that is the system’s fault. Also, never experienced this at all with three different game groups.

    Han Solo is a Smuggler/Scoundrel who optionally also bought the Imperial Academy generic spec. Optionally, because he never displays sign of being a soldier in the OT, or ever, really. He was an Imperial for, like, five minutes.
    Luke is either just a Warrior/Starfighter Ace, or an Ace/Pilot/Force-Sensitive Emergent.
    The game handles these just fine.

    Not sure why the couldn’t. But I agree it is not likely.

    You do realize what happened is effectively they moved office buildings. They just moved the line to a different department. They consolidated the RPG people into one bucket. That is it.
