Anyone have the Core book yet?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to a local game convention today and will be back on Monday, but anyway I doubt the book will be avaliable in Spain for at least another week or two weeks. If any of you European guys finds out an online store in Germany, UK or wherever that has it, I would really appreciate you sharing it :)

Kinda odd.

 

So, I went to a shop to check it out since I'm waiting for mine to come in through the mail. Move's hurl description was altered. For the most part, it's the same exact rule in the long text, just in a more brief, simpler form (likely to cut down on some of the more common questions being asked on the forums), but both the long and short (talent/power tree box) descriptions swap out "Discipline check" for "ranged combat check". And nowhere in the rest of the Move section or, that I saw skimming through the rest of the Force section, made mention of using Discipline for Move.

 

Huh, that's interesting.

Move - Hurl has always been treated like a ranged attack (e.g., success adds damage, it has the Autofire quality, Talents and Maneuvers like Sidestep or Aim or taking cover can affect it, etc) but tied to a Discipline check...

I assume the book goes into making an Inquisitor?

Yes, it does.

:)

Is it different from the beta?

 

Sorry, I can't say for sure. I've only recently jumped on this bandwagon, so I missed the beta.

No biggie. I'll (hopefully) have my books soon!

I've got a pre-order in at Miniature Market as well (includes the F&D core book, the GM guide, Desperate Allies, the Crit decks and some FFG card sleeves...gotta get that order up to get the free shipping!) No news on order shipment yet...generally it takes a good 5 business days to get to me in California once I get a tracking number, so I will have to wait until mid next week likely. 

 

I wouldn't hold your breath. I talked with them today and they still don't have any.

I find their lack of CRBs disturbing....

I preordered a couple of books through them over the years, and I find that Mini Market tends to be the slowest in getting the books in and shipping them out. Normal, in stock orders - fine, but something like a pending book? Naw, it's CSI for me!

I've been preordering from them for quite some time and this is the only instance in which I can tell I've been left hanging while the other stores are fulfilling their orders. Usually I'm first among my circle of friends that gets the hot new book.

 

Of course them stumbling on something like this has got me looking to change gears.

 

EDIT: Though it appears they now have them in stock, according to their website.

I've had similar experiences with MM, i.e. usually quick and efficient service. It's really the first time (for me) they're behind other stores by a couple of days (I mean the books managed to get to Finland, duh). I'm not happy about it.

 

Edit: They're in stock indeed. Now let's see how long it'll take for me to get the tracking number.

Being the curious type, I just logged in to MM to check on my two preorders (separate for the CRB and GMK). Imagine my surprise to see "Contents Verified" instead of the previous "Processing (preorder)". :)

I'm thinking maybe tomorrow I'll see the tracking number and the package middle of next week depending on the post office.....

Anyone in Canada get the Core yet?

Thanks

I did not get it yet, but at least one store here (Calgary) has it - Revolution Games. It is 80-something + tax so...no thanks? I'll wait until more stores have it which should result in at least one place having a sub-80 price haha

Mine is still in the back of a lorry, taking the scenic route through the midwest, presently.  <_<

 

However, I was able to finger through a specimen (and sniff it thoroughly) at the FLGS yesterday and couldn't find anything substantially different from Beta update #11.

They do have that awesome new book smell, don't they. There's something about a book that is hot off the presses... the smell of the ink... the crispness of the pages...

Got a shipping notification from MM this afternoon. 

And I just got the shipping notice for my orders as well. :)
