    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.

    kaisergav got a reaction from thestag in Need Feedback on proposal for playing Skirmish without Command Cards   
    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...

    kaisergav got a reaction from Ogrebear in [Jewel of Yavin] Sinking Cloud City. Or, what's the craziest idea your party has tried?   
    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. )

    A book that covers alternative Force disciplines. The Nightsisters, The Shapers of Kro Var. Maybe even a section to cover the concept of "Grey Jedi.

    Disney storytelling has always been very much good/evil, with no ambiguity. It stems from their traditional focus on stories aimed at children. Star Wars Rebels made a half-arsed attempt at something in the "middle" with Bendu, but mucked that up badly. OTOH, we do see less "morally upright" Rebel characters in Rogue One. All of whom die heroically (except for Saw, who just dies). Rogue One even makes a point of having Cassian say that he's done things that he regrets in the service of the Rebellion. But I strongly suspect that's the only example of less-than-pure-good characters that we'll see out of Disney. I get the impression that Disney considers as canon only Force users at the polar extremes of good/evil. Even the scene in TFA where Ben Solo/Kylo Ren is having his "crisis of conscience" was pretty much telegraphed as to which way it would go. Did anyone in the audience really expect that Han would leave that catwalk alive? The story would have been much more interesting if Kylo had stayed dark, yet let his father live. But that wouldn't fit the canon of pure good / pure evil (and Ford's decades-long desire to have his character killed off).

    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?

    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.

    I would love an Edge setting book called Seat of Power covering Coruscant in fine detail from the depths of the under city to the pinnacle of the senate.
     
    Edit: 
    Another great AoR book could be focused on the empires most loyal worlds, this book could have an entire chapter focused on playing Imperial PC's with an entire Duty chart dedicated to dutys to the Empire. Pillars of Dominance? 
    A Corporate sector book would be great too, although it could very easily be a combined Edge Adventure/Sector book similar to JoY (with Cloud City) and FLT (with Mandalor)

    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.

    I'm just waiting for that magic sourcebook that has Jawas, Miraluka, Zeltron, and lots of details on life as a normal citizen inside the Core Worlds of the Empire or as an honourable officer in the Imperial Navy.

    kaisergav got a reaction from General Zodd in Did you buy IA to play Campaign or Skirmish? POLL   
    The printed mats seem like a great idea to address this issue, but I'm looking at the main UK sites and the maps are priced £20-£25, which is nowhere near sufficiently cheaper than the boxed expansions (typically £30-35 for a small box, £40-45 for a big box), considering you might as well just get all of the figures anyway.
    It's also about 50% more expensive than their other playmats, such as those recently released for Arkham Horror LCG.
