Scoundral Book

Recommended Posts

No announcements on Smuggler yet.  Lots of threads about the additional career books.  The top of the page has an "upcoming" link that takes to you to FFG's products in the various stages of dev and release.  So far all there is waiting is AoR books and the Jewel of Yavin.

I know they haven't really done this for Dangerous Covenants, but they did release Enter the Unknown and Beyond the Rim at similar times and both were clearly exploration based books. Could the release of Jewel of Yavin be an indicator that the smuggler book is up next? It certainly would make sense to release adventures related to the career books at similar times as they both serve as complements and could potentially capture both GMs and players in a party, whereas a group could just split a career book.

I get a feeling that FFG's focus is going to now be on Age of Rebellion, as that's the "new hotness" this year, with the Force & Destiny Beta being not too far behind.

 

We'll probably start seeing previews and announcements for upcoming EotE material once those items are out the door.

I wouldn't be surprised to see another sector source book out soon. My money is on Hutt Space. If they did not other source book for EotE, that one would be the one they should do.

A Hutt Space Sourcebook (or at least a Nal Hutta/Nar Shaddaa Sourcebook) seems like a shoe-in for EotE. I'd really love to see a book (possibly an Adventure Module) that fleshes out Ord Mantell as well.

Privateer (Pirate is so ugly)- Combat and Leadership fusion?

Gambler - Cool and Deception based with talents from the trader like Smooth Talker and Nobody's Fool?

Informant - Stealth Knowledge and Trading skills/talents?

First Mate - Gunner Mechanic fusion?

Dealer - Medicine and Skulduggery?

Courier - Stealth & computers w/ Brawl/Melee?

Gunslinger is a pretty easy one, swap some Scoundrel stuff for things like Second Wind, Dynamic Fire for the dual wielding, maybe Dodge instead of Side Step, a rank of Deadly Accuracy, maybe a rank of Uncanny Reflexes/Senses.

 

How about Daredevil instead of Starhopper?

Love the Privateer and Gambler ideas...throw in Gunslinger and I think you've got a winning combination in my eyes! :D

Because of the 'devil' word, daredevil would either impose or presuppose a Star Wars equivalent to such a figure, and might even be an unwelcome imposition of the notion given its relation to christian mythology. Space Jockey might be a better term, or Stunt Pilot for a concept based on maneuvering a vessel. For FFG, I imagine the Star Wars franchise represents a unique challenge in maintaining a game whose terminology has to be universal and therefor specifically non-religious when it comes to actual Earth religions.

 

In other words, think of politically correct names.

 

 

Not to pile on, but this comes from Wookieepedia's entry on Devaronians:

Many species felt uncomfortable in their presence, for they resembled the devils of a thousand different myths[2].

Dual wielding specialist better be in Smuggler or Bounty Hunter that's all I got to say.

It's kind of in the universal recruit tree with Dynamic Fire, although there probably are ways too improve it a bit more.

Potential smuggler jobs that I see:

 

Gunslinger - Maybe a dual wielding or quick draw specialist?

Mastermind - Crime-based leader

Vagrant - Survivalist rogue

Fringe doctor - Like an Outlaw Tech... except with organs, illegal gene splices, etc.

Spy?

Starhopper - Half-politico, half-pilot

Racer - Bonuses to maneuvering in space or on the ground, not so much firepower as Pilot

For Gunslinger, I think just a Tree would do for that (If that is what you are going for) because my PC is a Pilot that runs around w/ 2 Blasters (Kinda like Kevin Costner in Silverado or Val Kilmer in Tombstone) "I have 2 Guns, 1 for each of ya"

 

And I am a Kickass pilot.  So having a Tree that will maximize my Blaster skills would be very nice!
