  1. Not a trait, but Dengar always seemed to me like he's waiting on a good new Condition that he can apply to make him worth playing.
  2. We often play 4-player skirmish, and have always just dealt all of the command cards out. The 1/4 you receive is the one you get first pick of 15 cards from. After everyone has chosen precisely 15 cards (regardless of cost initially), then all other cards are passed to the person on your left. Repeat until everyone is satisfied with their deck and has also satisfied the cost requirements. It works fine, although we could probably do with another copy of Element of Surprise and Assassinate...
  3. Far from a competitive player, but I did enjoy playing this last week: Bossk (8), Jabba (6), Maul (7), Onar (6), Elite Weequays (7), regular Jawa (2), regular Nexu (4)
  4. This is certainly true. But for me at least, I'm much more motivated by what makes for potentially more interesting storytelling than what's strictly-speaking canon. Perhaps that is the case for others who are interested in the concepts of Grey Jedi or other force traditions. Apologies if something along such lines has already been said.
  5. The only thing I expect for sure from it, is a lengthly period on the boat.
  6. Some really cool new Imperial Assault stuff announced. Shame there don't seem to be any RPG announcements for May 4th though.
  7. I've just finished being a player in the Jewel of Yavin. According to the Wookipedia article, Cloud City is kept aloft by repulsorlifts and tractor beam generators. So I was wondering if anyone has actually tried the idea I tried to pitch to my team about causing Cloud City to fall in order to create a, er, mild distraction while we conduct the theft of the gem? Apart from that, what stories are there of the most outlandish/extreme things that your party has tried in this, or other, adventures? (Don't worry, we didn't go for that and, in the end, only about 20 people died when we stole the jewel. )
  8. That's true, yes, I should give Disney credit for allowing Rogue One to explore some of those themes. I was heartened when Cassian murdered that informant at the start. I hope that more follows in Rogue One's style. But yea, was anyone on earth surprised by that "shock" killing? Similarly, I hope that Rey goes evil in Ep. 8. She's a very likeable character, and they need to do something interesting with her.
  9. I had rather gotten the impression that Lucas and Disney's attitude would be a doubling-down on a stark good/evil divide - both in terms of the Rebels vs Empire (hello space Nazis, uh, I mean Helghast First Order!), and in terms of the dark side of the Force being unambiguously evil rather than emotional/passionate. And from my perspective, that is depressing. Not necessarily because of changes from what these things were before, but just because I think it results in less interesting storytelling, especially in RPGs.
  10. Nice! Now if iTunes UK could just get the two episodes of Season 3's finale added so I can actually watch them, that'd be great...
  11. A Sith and other non-Jedi force tradition sourcebook for F&D would always be welcome. Perhaps there will be more incentive for it since we had Chirrut in Rogue One?
  12. Yes, I've been wanting to see life from the point of view of people who aren't rebels. Surely many must see the Empire similar to how Roman citizens viewed the Roman Empire. You know, where you don't have to be flat-out evil to join the Navy.
  13. Far Horizons is definitely one of the best for me. I like sourcebooks that explore a different take, and expand on the types of adventures and characters that are supported. For example, instead of just another slightly different combat class, it gives you inspiration for a totally different style of play with the Performer class. Someday I will make a cross-spec Gadgeteer/Performer who's only a bounty hunter to maintain his true calling of stage magic...
  14. I found the soundtrack underwhelming, mainly because the version in the "Story Trailer" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frdj1zb9sMY is excellent (especially around the 1.30 mark), and all of that was totally absent in the final film. The scene where the death star is revealed behind the shadow of a Star Destroyer in particular would have been much more dramatic if it had solid music to go with it, as was the case in one of the other trailers.
