I Have Disciples of Harmony. You Have Questions.

Recommended Posts

My current list of questions for whoever first gets the book:

  • What are the backgrounds?
  • Any outstanding moralities?
  • What are the species stats?
  • What do the specializations do? Layout provided and talent details would be nice.
    • Which specialization, if any, has a conflict talent and what does it do?
    • What is the Force Rating/Dedication count for each?
  • What do the signature abilities do?
  • What do the Force powers do?
  • What are the motivations?
  • Weapon, armor, and gear lists. Any standouts?
  • Vehicle list. Any standouts?
    • Does the Consular-class cruiser have the same or different profile as it has in Age of Rebellion?
  • Chapter 3 details can come at leisure.

Arkanians were the first thing I looked at in the book since they have always been one of my favorites in the old EU.

Offshoots are mentioned, but the test States they are not "'true Arkanians'".

Arkanians have Intellect 3, Presence 1; WT 10, ST 10; 100 XP; 1 rank in Medicine; Dark Vision (removing 2 SD).

There we are!  I knew it had to happen soon!  Thank you for donning the heavy mantel of The Spoiler for this book!  Took you long enough :P !

 

As for questions: full layout, talent/upgrade descriptions, and overviews/opinions of the three specs, the two signature abilities, and the two Force powers, if you please!  I can provide you with the layout template that is the unofficial forum standard of you need it!

Also, I think a key question is (though perhaps hard to answer now), Is it cool?

I thought the last two career books (Endless Vigil and No Disintegrations) were some of the best across all three lines. Is this as good?

I know, it's completely subjective.

You've got me curious; what is the layout template that is the unofficial forum standard??

The one I used for both Savage Spirits and No Disintegrations, because that's the only time it's ever been consistent across two spoilings and contained all necessary information :P !

Like I said, entirely unofficial, I just designed it to be everything we need in as concise a manner as possible.  Here, I'll go grab the one from ND...

For those who missed it in the other thread, here are the basics of the specs and signature abilities so that Adar doesn't have to type them all out again. 

 

Spec skills are:

Martial Artist:  Athletics, Brawl, Coordination, Discipline; 

Operator:  Astrogation, Gunnery, Piloting (Planetary), Piloting (Space);

Skip Tracer:  Cool, Knowledge (Underworld), Negotiation, Skulduggery.

 

Any clarifications needed, feel free to ask our Honored Spoilor :) !

Here's the one I did for No Disintegrations (it's in the spoilers at the top).  I couldn't find the blank template, because I think for once that's on my personal computer, not my work one. 

But that should be enough to work with, assuming this Honored Spoiler doesn't want to invent their own version :) .

 

EDIT:  Gaah!  It didn't transfer the spoilers!  Hold on a sec...

GAAAAHH >_< !!

First impression is that there are some surprises I...was...surprised..by.

The Crucible!  I Love that ship from The Clone Wars series and there it is with stats and plot hooks.

Cool art: really great pic of a female Arkanian with a scar and lightsaber pike. 

The Consular-class ship has separate stats for the salon pod now.

I think this book really stretched to fill in some equipment.  Sometimes less is more.

Just some initial impressions flipping through it.

Lightsaber crystals.   Now this may be my fave so far.

Corrupted Crystals.  So you've beaten the Dark Sider and harvested the crystal from his red-bladed lightsaber.  Now what?  The answer is now in DoH.  If you liked the Ahsoka novel this seems to follow what she was doing to get her white lightsaber.

 

Cracked Crystals.  Pick up any Khyber crystals from the remains of the Death Star over Yavin?  Get one from a batty old woman on Cloud City?  Here it is!

Seeker Crystal.  Helps find hidden beings within short range.

Solari Crystal.  Breach 1, Sunder, Defensive 1; reduces strain cost to activate the Reflect talent if you morality remains 50+.

Arbiter has Lightsaber as a class skill.  No Jarkai.   There is the Aggressive Negotiations talent, however (25 XP).  1/session with a Hard Lightsaber check you can decrease the difficulty of Negotiation checks by 2 for the rest of the encounter.
