I just had a thought for what I'd like in this. 

A lethal blows equivalent for force powers that do criticals. Someone get on the devs quick!!!! 

I could see something like that in the sorcerer tree. I am betting that seer and prophet are complimentary trees just like pathfinder and hermit.

Horrible news D= !  The guy at my FLGS who writes most of the news articles for the Star Wars books has told me that he didn't do the articles for Unlimited Power!  That means I can't even bother him about the content or timing of said articles! 

Not that bothering him has ever actually done anything, but still! We're at the mercy of an entirely unknown writer!

Beginning of March, I think.  I hope it'll be earlier than that; aggressive estimates could put it in the middle/end of February.  But I don't want to be overly aggressive in my estimates on this because  HOLY [REDACTED] am I excited!!!!!

I am unsure I will survive that long. I really don't think I will.

*breathes into bag*  EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! *gasp*

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! *gasp*

...I don't think it's working.  *runs around the room* screaming her head off in excitement*

 

*  As an actual depiction of this, I go to the gym on Thursday nights.  I increased the power of my cardio routine by about 30% and did twice the weights-training I normally do, and I still felt jazzed when I was done.  I am THAT excited.

I see that it's available for pre-order from FFG...is there any benefit to this over waiting until release date from my FLGS?

Other than making sure you get a copy? No.

That explains it, I have Imbue, accidently imbued my A-Wing with the Force and nobody wants to go near it. Thing basically is a companion now {Note: A-Wing starfighters have a cute butt!}

Back on topic: What exactyly can we expect for Mystics ? They use two sabers at times yes ?

Reinforcing your attempt to be "on-topic," whatever THAT means.

Here's what I'm anticipating from this book!  I'm going to be 100% wrong, but!

1)  Alchemy rules!  The major Chapter 3 extra rules thing.  I expect it'll work like the various crafting systems, only you'll have to be a Force-sensitive (and possibly have a specific power; see below), and it's probably done with a skill like Knowledge: Lore instead of Mechanics, and allows you to create imbued objects (and possibly creatures!)

2)  Two new Force powers: Alchemy, and Psychometry (likely with catchier names)!  I think that the Alchemy power will be a more advanced version of the Imbue Item and Reinforce Item talents, and very similar to the Alchemy crafting rules, only the power would obviously only last a short time, probably for an encounter at most.  Psychometry (also called object reading for those who don't know) would grant the ability to read the past of people, places, and objects, as well as gather impressions of powerful or notably events that happened at or near the target.  A very useful ability, and one I've wanted to see for a long time!

3)  Variant weapon and armor attachments!  I'm thinking the "lucky" blaster they mention in the article will be an example of this.  An alchemical weapon attachment, that must be installed and can only be modded by a Force user, and can only be "created" by one too; not something you could buy, except from an alchemist willing to do the work for you.

 

How right am I?  My guess is very not.  But here's hoping!

 

* Final addendum - one of the specs, hopefully the Prophet, that has the One with the Universe talent.  Kemna needs her OwtU, goshdarnit >_< !!!
