    BattleScribe Updates for Legion!

    Thanks. I've fixed it in the my files. It will go live when I push the update with the Pathfinders (tonight I hope).

    The data hosting page is finicky, especially when loaded in a browser. The data is there, even if it isn't displaying right. BattleScribe should be able to find it for an update. If not, let me know and I'll see what I can do.

    I admit that 85 seems low, but when I zoom in on the picture, it really looks like 85 (at least to me). I try my best to figure out what the picture says but when FFG gives us blurry art, sometimes it isn't right. I definitely lean towards using the value I think it says, not a value I think it should be. If the consensus is that it is 95 or 115 I can change it, but since all the unreleased stuff is subject to change and updates anyway, I've usually treated the ambiguity as not being a big deal. None of us actually know.

    BattleScribe Updates for Legion!

    BattleScribe update! I made some major updates to the Legion files for BattleScribe. I added all the new stuff from the articles this week (more of Jyn's cards, initial spoilers for Bossk and Sabine). More importantly, I finally added everything necessary to add your Battle Cards to your roster. For the moment, the Battle Cards don't have any text or profiles associated with them. However, just having the titles is enough to add them and have them print out as part of your list. Honestly, I'm a little on the fence about adding profiles at all - the card text, particularly on the Objective Cards, is really wordy and could really lengthen a roster print out. When you create a new roster, one entry for each type of Battle Card (Condition, Deployment, Objective)will automatically get added to your list - you'll have to go in and select which four cards you want from those entries. If you open an existing roster, you'll have to manually add the entries to your list - they'll be at the very bottom of the list of things you can add. Just pick one of each type. You'll have to update your data to get the new files from battlescribe.appspot.com . Once you've had a chance to play around with it for a bit, please let me know if you see any errors or typos. I'm also interested in feedback about whether having the Battle Cards is helpful or annoying, if they could be better implemented some other way, or if people would really like the card text added for them (understanding that the Deployment Cards will be nearly impossible to get right as BattleScribe really can't display images or present data visually). Please let me know if

    I'm just now seeing this. I hope you've figured it out by now, but if not: battlescribedata.appspot.com

    Rise of the Separatists Era Book

    That could be really interesting, though you could probably get something thematically similar (without reinventing the wheel in terms of game mechanics) by just playing a droid tech that was constantly building and enhancing battledroids. A Skakoan or Geonosian could be thematic. It would probably take a while to get off the ground though, in terms of necessary credits and xp. Absolutely it would be a functional PC. It would just be hard to get there using the existing PC Droid species. The mechanical lopsidedness of the PC Droid species is so hard to work around; I've often wished for a more balanced official option. I would have serious concerns if a player came to me asking to play any PC that was incapable of speaking, unable to fit in confined spaces, unable to climb a ladder, and lacked any digits capable of fine manipulation because it had guns for hands. In some of the (now Legends) fluff, it was also noted that they lacked normal photoreceptors, which means they also can't read or see lots of other details (apparently they "see" through some combination of proximity and radiation sensors). I'm not saying it's impossible to use one as a PC. I just feel like the munchkin alarm would be ringing pretty loud in my head if someone wanted to go this route.

    Rise of the Separatists Era Book

    I'm not sure how thematically reasonable that is. Most of the battledroids were just never that competent, and none of them seemed flexible enough to use more than one of the three new specs (Officer, Pilot, Trooper). Flexibility is especially weird when converting over the career because Droids as PCs really need to hyperspecialize to be viable and these three specs all go in sort of different directions. We really never see a "great" battledroid pilot except for ships that are droids (Vultures, Hyenas, Tri-Fighters) so converting the Clone Pilot spec to droids seems especially tough. Generally, the most competent Separatist Droids were the Commando Droid, the Tactical Droid, and the MagnaGuard (and I guess the Droideka, but that's functionally a mobile emplacement and probably not a playable character for RPG purposes). The MagnaGuard never demonstrated any ability to do anything creative or useful outside of pure hand-to-hand combat; there's a great argument for Marauder or Bodyguard, but somehow I doubt porting over Clone Trooper will be quite right for them. The Tactical Droid already seems like a good match for most of the Commander specs so a converted Clone Officer may work, but the other two seem like longshots. Finally, the Commando Droid, while probably being the most flexible (and the most comparable to a standard clone), can likely pull off something converted from Clone Trooper, the others seem like a reach. Ultimately, even if you want to view the Separatists as having heroes and being ideologically equivalent to the Republic, the problem is that the droid army was still built to be disposable and favor quantity over quality. Giving them their own career and specs is a tough sell because they just aren't built to be that flexible. It's hard to see most of them as anything more than minions. Of course, it's obviously all speculation until we get the book...

    Just out of curiosity, what are people doing about career skills for for the RCT when they unlock it from the clone requirement? I got the sense that its six career skills (instead of the usual four) were compensation for the lack of flexibility, and perhaps to help account for it.

    I pushed the update. It will take a few hours to go live on the data hosting page - sometimes as long as eight hours. Please let me know if you see any errors or have any issues.

    Nah, I'll have all the new stuff up tonight. Most of it's done on my laptop, I just need to finish it up and push the update. Thanks for the offer though. What do figure the new upgrade slot will be called? I'm tentatively calling it "Configurable Weapon" unless someone knows better.

    Clone Wars?

    Yes, Clone Wars factions will be coming in 2019.

    Tournament Rule: Number of Dice

    It is possible to use both copies of a die for some unique upgrades. If your opponent is running old Grievous and he steals your Maul's Lightsaber from a defeated character, you could then play your second copy of Maul's Lightsaber on a different one of your characters. Both dice would be in play simultaneously.

    I've done a few more minor BattleScribe updates since my last post. Nothing crazy but I am keeping things up to date. The cards from the Han Solo and Rebel Commando expansions are no longer marked as unreleased. Also, I added the final spoiled information from the Boba Fett expansion pack, though I just pushed that last update so it will probably take 8 hours or so to go live on the update website. Let me know if you have any trouble.

    Street Date for Han Solo Wave?

    Sure, but they usually spread out their releases more evenly week over week. It's just odd for them to dump 15 new SKUs (from 3 different lines) on retailers on one day when most other weeks they are getting between 2-6.

    Street Date for Han Solo Wave?

    Generally, the release dates are on Thursdays, but they are announced the Wednesday 15 days prior. Like today - Han and the Commandos were confirmed for 8/23. Check out the upcoming page if you want to see it for yourself - looks like 8/23 will be a busy release day between Han and the Commandos, the Lothal wave of Imperial Assault stuff, and the AGoT house decks.
