  1. As customers we have even less insight into the intricacies of Disney/Lucasfilm/EA/FFG licensing negotiations than we do the release date of this book.

    Thanks for the feedback - initially that is exactly what her Blink ability was going to do, but on reflection I made the decision to keep her limited to the "2 maneuvers per turn" limit but mitigate the strain cost. If she could move from Short to Long range in a single turn, I was concerned she might prove too imbalanced. That said, when I finally get to playtest this I'll be able to try out different iterations of the same ability to see if it works (and I encourage anyone using this setting to do the same!).

    Thanks, glad you like the look of it! Almost finished the setting chapter / NPC adversary blocks. After that I just need to finish off the Character Creation and Encounter Ideas section. Latest update: 8th February 2019 - Completed faction pages and NPC stats for Vishkar Corporation, the Shambali, the Junkers and the Shimada Clan. - Updated several NPC stat blocks. - Further updates to the talent list & custom setting rules.
  4. For my CW campaign, the players have joined the Separatists so at the end of a particularly "story critical" session (maybe they've uncovered a vital piece of information, destroyed a Republic facility or have defeated an important adversary) I sometimes treat them to a glimpse of what's happening over on the Republic side. Like those countless scenes in the Clone Wars TV show where the Jedi Council, the Senate or folks in Palpatine's office gather to sum up what has happened over the course of an episode, I describe a brief scene of people like Mace Windu, Yoda or the Chancellor himself discussing the impact of their actions. It's a fun way to show how their actions have consequences for the greater war as a whole. It isn't as explicit as "Mace Windu: Players A, B and C are dangerous foes, we need to deal with them." but rather something like "Mace Windu: Dooku's agents are continuing to stir up trouble in the XYZ system. If the local garrisons can't get the situation under control, we may have to consider dispatching a Jedi to the planet." It helps the PCs get a little tease of what might be coming further down the line and gives them a kick out of having a marginal impact on canon characters. And I do so love a good opportunity to put on my best-terrible Samuel L Jackson voice.
  5. Okay ladies and gentlemen, who's ready to be disappointed again when the shipping status doesn't change today? sobs in Huttese
  6. The campaign I run has already had the characters bump into CW-era Boba Fett and receive holo-instructions from General Grievous. I know we're definitely getting the latter but I wonder if we'll get a "kid" build of Boba for the Clone Wars or if they'll leave it since his adult profile is coming in Allies & Adversaries.
  7. So, how's about those Separatists eh?

    The plan is to have all the factions/NPCs/adversaries written up for the end of this weekend. To this end, started first drafts of members of the Deadlock gang:

    Today's heroes - Torbjorn and Mercy, bringing us up to 11 heroes + 1 NPC out of the 29 playable characters currently in the game. Once the "canon" characters have all been statted up, I can move on to making the generic NPCs for the setting (Talon mercenaries, Helix agents, omnic citizens, etc):

    Update: 27th January 2019 - Completed first draft of the Skills & Talents chapter. - Completed stat blocks for Moira, Widowmaker, Sombra and Maximilien. - Updated stat blocks for Doomfist and Reaper. - Added a 'Credits' page at the front of the document. As always, individual stat blocks for those who might want them:

    Today's update: - Updated the WIP document in the OP. - New sections include Blackwatch and Talon pages. - Added stat blocks for Doomfist and Reaper. - Tweaked existing stat blocks. The stat blocks for those who want them separately. Continuing to look for feedback on their unique abilities - they're supposed to be powerful since these are boss-level NPCs, but am trying to root out any possible gamebreakers or abuses ahead of time:
  13. Yep, came here to post the same - RotS seems to have been leapfrogged. I think Shadow of the Beanstalk only moved to On The Boat in the last two weeks? Let rampant speculation commence.

    Tweaked Soldier 76's tactical visor "aimbot" ability - it didn't make sense to ignore defense, so I lost that but gave him the ability to trigger Auto Fire without needing to increase the difficulty when tactical visor is activated. Next heroes to be worked on are likely to be Mercy and McCree, but after them I will probably take a step back from NPC stats and instead focus on the character creation rules. I want to build a framework for players to be able to craft their own heroes with a good mix between custom talents/abilities/items that are similar to the "canon" characters for those who want to draw inspiration from the game, and more unique distinct ones for those who want to cut loose.

    Tweaked Winston's stats a little - gave him a buff to his wound threshold, but added an additional strain penalty to his special ability. Also completed two more characters but will likely tweak them some more over the coming days:
