Lately the local shipping has been a bit of a nightmare. The new Eldritch Horror expansion was dated for this thursday, but their truck didn't show up til yesterday. Not a huge problem by any means...but given how excited I am for this RPG book, the same thing will probably happen to it.

I'd prefer getting a book 1 day later than everyone else to getting a book 6 days later than everyone else, and a 1 day late shipment relative to a one day too early shipment (which makes me wait a week) might mean I get the book on release day... so here's to hoping for slightly delayed shipments

Just got my contributor copy yesterday! The book looks great, and I'm eager to see what others think of it! 

Nice! I'm very curious about what new Specializations are in it, and the new species. :D

-E.

I imagine someone on here (that didn't work on the book) will have it soon and disclose all listings of various things. 

The second artitcle about the book says: 

 Four new species choices, each with unique traits and histories describing their place in the galaxy, also contribute to a richer game setting for players and gamemasters to explore. 
 

I can say I worked on those four species, and I'm very proud of how they turned out. curious to see what others thing of them!

Yes, I know. I'm just very eager for this particular book. But it will be mine soon enough. :D

Very curious about how the Retired Clone Trooper spec is going to work. You can't have a, say, Rodian Retired Clone Trooper, can you? So maybe Clone will be one of those new species?

I imagine that if a player wants the Retired Clone Trooper spec without being an actual, you know, clone, it could easily be rationalized as him being a veteran of some other military outfit. No need to be quite that rigid about interpreting specialization titles.

OR IS THERE.....!!!!

 

I imagine that is exactly how it will work. But who's to say that the Republic  was the only buyer for a clone army? How do we know that some Hutt with well lined pockets didn't in fact commission an army of Rodians?

I wonder if the ship stats from Rebels and Rogue One are in there?

I think we'll see the U-Wing and Krennic's shuttle, at least. Personally, I'm hoping for a re-stat of the VCX-100 (aka "The Ghost") as the stats appearing in Keeping the Peace just doesn't make much sense to me. :P
Also, at least two new Tie-variants were seen in Rogue One, so maybe we'll see those. And for some reason, they've statted the Death Star as a vehicle. :D

There's a pretty good chance of that, although it will probably depend a bit on when the book was done/sent to the printer in relation to when the movies came out.

I want to see official stats on the imperial light cruiser, and the gozanti listening ship. U wings are cool too.

I just want to see stats in general. I feel like it has been ages since we've received a sourcebook, and I am so excited to dive into this one.

I know!  It feels like it's been a whole 263 days (~8.64 months) since our last sourcebook was released!  That's ages!

(I'm being both sarcastic and literal here at the same time; woot! :P )

 

Come on, come on...where's our spoiler?  I know you're out there...

In the UK we just hope to get it within a month of release in the US (does not always happen). With reprints it's even worse as they're often out of stock at the distributor (also part of Asmodee) before stores can order them.

Well it is based around Rogue One and Rebels, and incorporates everything from those two. This book may be the single greatest book they have released so far, if you haven’t bought it, you need to. Besides the core rule books I think it is the single most important book to own. 

The species are; Gigoran, Drabatan, Tognarth, and Iakaru. (Basically the aliens you see in Rogue One) 

The speciailizations are; Force Adherent (one with the force!) Imp Academy Cadet, Padawan Survivor, Pirate, Retired Trooper, Ship captain.

I don’t know what else I can say without getting in trouble. I don’t want to break any rules. I have to say though that there isn’t a single area of this book that disappoints me. Every major lore character imaginable has stats, every piece of gear or vehicle we’ve seen in Rebels or Rogue One is detailed, and I have to say I think these are some of the best crafted trees and species we have gotten so far.
