  1. The only Guns shown on the Ghost are Top Guns http://i.imgur.com/CLaoj31.jpg Bottom Guns http://i.imgur.com/2WyKIG9.jpg http://i.imgur.com/mMguo04.jpg http://i.imgur.com/JPjFT0b.jpg http://i.imgur.com/ENLbuIW.jpg http://i.imgur.com/SzujYIY.jpg http://i.imgur.com/HqMyuAM.jpg Please tell me how that bottom gun is just 1. "Here endeth the lesson" - Elliot Ness to Al Capone in the Untouchables. Edit: Added Many blurry action shots
  2. 26 mins 52 seconds into the Season Finale (Rebel Resolve) of Rebels shows the chin canons as shot by Sabine. 26:58 shows a tiny bit better but you have to be fast on the pause button.
  3. Season 2 has not even started in the US. They did have a sequel to Spark of Rebellion that sets up Season 2, but as far as I know the real season does not start until September.
  4. I hope the begging for xp folks release the Force and Destiny (released) sheets, that would be wonderful.
  5. With the same amount of respect, I will point out that Disney specifically called out at Star Wars Celebration that the Ultimate Star Wars book was canon, so regardless if it was seen on screen or not, the owners of the intellectual property decided this was the listing they wanted for their starship. I fully appreciate that at the time you had not known this, that does not make the book or its data or my typing exactly what it stated incorrect. The encumbrance is subjective and so that is fine that you and I differ there, though with 4 pods and 130 available that leaves a weird 32.5 encumbrance per pod, which makes zero sense. At very minimum changing it to 132 would be divisible by 4 evenly, 140 would make it 35 per, which also makes sense.
  6. Just because this was stated and not addressed in my last comment. Per canon (Ultimate Star Wars, page 292 lower left hand corner) they get the weapons wrong on the ship. The front load out is listed as "Two forward laser cannons are located underneath the gunner station" From Spark of Rebellion: Weapons: One Forward Turret-Mounted Heavy Laser Cannon (Fire Arc Forward; Damage 6;Critical 3; Range [short]), One Dorsal Turret Mounted Medium Laser Cannon (Fire Arc All; Damage 6; Critical 3; Range [Close]) This not only contradicts canon but it ignores the Lego (http://wac.450f.edgecastcdn.net/80450F/screencrush.com/files/2014/01/star-wars-rebels-lego-sets-1.jpg) as well. =) Additionally it would make more sense to have the cargo encumbrance to be 120 or 160 as it has to be a number reasonably divided by 4 as on the bottom right of that same Ultimate Star Wars page 292, it lists "Main Cargo Hold: Four holds are located on each corner of the ship." As they are equal size it is reasonable that they would be more of a reasonable number so 30 or 40 encumbrance per section.
  7. Keith Kappel came on here every time one of the books he contributed came out and answered questions about them for days. Max Brooke just did (or is going to do?) the Order 66 podcast about one of the books he contributed to. They didn't ever get mad or follow anyone to other threads to try to attack other opinions they had. Where I have seen this happen to multiple people based on fan made stuff. My comment stands. =)
  8. I hope you are right, unfortunately as I stated above, they 100% ignored the RPG on May the 4th, so it is very likely the same will happen for the next Star Wars "day".
  9. .... A tweet from the start of GenCon (aka 9am 31 July) is going to explain why... during GenCon they didn't reveal any RPG stuff? That is some hyper rationalization there. Edit: rechecked, it wasn't the "start" so much as in the middle of it... but still they had time after the tweet to reveal stuff AT GenCon. http://www.gencon.com/attend/futuredates for dates of gencon.
  10. Aside from trying to start a flame war or an arguement I think the "rankings" most people list are silly. Unfortunately when it comes to posts like this, most people prefer to be angry than to think rationally, so people hate on the new trilogy too much. prophetic statement is proven correct... news at 11.
  11. I think the fact they had reveals at previous GenCons and not this one is scary, like they lost confidence in the game and don't want to show it at all when the list of the world is on them.
  12. I personally prefer official/published material to fan made because published tends to get things more universally accepted and the writers don't get mad if you ask questions.
  13. If you look at the last few opportunities for reveals for Star Wars stuff, GenCon, May the 4th, Celebration, etc absolutely zero of those had any SWRPG reveals and barely any mentions. There were in between reveals like Mask of the Pirate Queen and Keeping the Peace, but it is almost like they are purposely avoiding any reveals for this game system at anything major or anything but to the smallest audience.
  14. The best place to start with for ideas is the most obvious. "If I was in the Star Wars Universe, what would I want to do?" From there you can emulate stories/ideas from the books/movies/cartoons Or you can use the standard "pull from here" list that includes; Star Trek Stargate Firefly James Bond Mission: Impossible Basically take something you would find fun, add a healthy dose of Star Wars, shake, serve warm or shot from a blaster pistol.
  15. Could you go a bit goofy and non standard and have the pilot be bored and play a video game... inside the RPG that was a flight sim of sorts? In the Advanced Future-past that is Star Wars you really think they don't have video games?
  16. I was with you up until this point. A movie's poetic license taken from a graphic novel's poetic license, taken from a myth's poetic license distorting the truth does not mean 300 people did anything. As a note, the "300" failed. /end of off topic
  17. I wouldn't hold your breath. I talked with them today and they still don't have any.
  18. To the first point; The GM's job is to enforce the rules. At the point you let the Players decide, they will do the "video game pockets" that I referenced already. Players don't always mean to "break" rules, but if they are not told that 50 blaster rifles are more than 1 player can hold... they will all try to do it. To the second point; anyone that cheats at any tabletop game confuses me when the whole point of games is to have fun. If you have to cheat to have fun, either the Players are horrible at their role, or the GM is horrible at theirs. Either way that game needs to be handled quickly or ended. Keep in mind, getting a rule wrong is not cheating. Cheating would be deliberately not calling attention to something that is known in the rules to gain an unfair/unreasonable advantage.
