Anyone have the Core book yet?

Recommended Posts

Picked mine up yesterday. Absolutely loving this book thus far, as I'm reading through it. Even has some awesome force lore (covering Sith and Jedi history including the legendary stuff, Darth Bane ftw!).

In the most recent Order 66 podcast I've listened to, Max Brooke (author of Desperate Allies) confirms that all content is consulted with LFL. Personally I like to think that (at least since the beginning of Disney era and the "new" canon) the actual status of SWRPG information is at least "pre-canon" as in "pre-approved on the basis of some future plans to include it in the new canon", rather than simply Legends. I prefer to think about it this way :)

Canon compatible.  As in, there's nothing in the RPG that's going to jarringly contradict what appears in the canon, so if you are a canon-conscious GM, you can confidently use the people and places in the source books without worry.

Disney probably treats the gaming line (table-top, not computer gaming) as "Legends" anyway. Gamers are going to do things that they can't regulate, nor would they want to. The RPG by itself is an alternate universe of sorts, with practically zero chance of anything occuring in a game or game books as being considered canon.  Not even the adventures can be considered canon, since their outcome is dependent on who's playing that particular day and how the dice roll.

 

I like the fact that FFG draws on a lot of Legends lore, but I would never expect anything FFG comes up with (or puts in the book) to be made official. "LFL Approval for Legends" is about the best we can hope for.

 

Back on topic...GOD I hope I get a call today saying my reserved copy is in!

OMG do you canonites ever STFU!?! Does every freaking thread have devolve into a discussion of canonicity!?! It scares me to think how you folks live your lives in the real world! Do you have to have a set of instructions and guidelines for everything you do in life handed to you from a higher authority!?!

Now back to hearing about all the new books! Which btw I ordered mine from Amazon should be here in about a week.

Throttle back there, chief.  No need to freak out. While I'm a little jaded about the whole matter, it does matter to some folks. Doesn't mean you have to give them both barrels from your Conflict canon. (<- see what I did there?) ;)

 

In other news: just got the phone call from my FLGS that my copy is in.

( I wonder how much Conflict it is to Influence my boss to let me get out of work early...?) <_<

That perfectly explains why Age of Rebellion sticks to the story that Vader's secret apprentice was the key to forming the Alliance... FU indeed.

Not to brag, but my FLGS just got theirs in!

So purrty! (I really dig FFG's production standards).

 

 

Zoe and her art staff don't get paid enough.

 

(NOTE: I have no concept what they're actually paid, and hope to the Maker that they are content with their earnings. ;) )

Actually I'm glad about that, as one of my long running storylines had the PCs chasing down the final resting place of the Rogue Shadow :)

They have started shipping from Miniature Market, so keep an eye out later today. Yours just might have been one of the orders they didn't get to yesterday. They said they had a lot of preorders for the book so it might take a day or two to process everything and ship them out. Mine's in transit so they'l be on the way very soon.

Every time I check my order status and find it's still processing, an Inquisitor kills an Order 66 holdout.

My order with MM is stuck on "Processing" too :( And I've preordered a long time ago.
