Rise of the Separtist's release date?

Recommended Posts

Padawan sounds very attractive for almost any character with a saber (and FaD really is heavily saber-dominated). Quick access to FR, Well Rounded, some Parry and Reflect along with Toughened and Grit are something most anyone will like. Knight is far less impressive to me.

I want to think it's deliberate. Most people will be inclined to skip past Padawan for the- well, just on the basis of Jedi Knight being called Jedi Knight. Making it more tempting mechanically encourages people to eat points into it, which makes a lot of sense for people to do, considering every Jedi Knight would have experience of being a Padawan.

Yeah, an early force rating, and still a dedication to boot...throw in the parry and reflect...and then things like "Something to Prove", "Beginner's Luck" and "Sincerest Flattery" are just icing on the cake...I really like those, those are great for situations where you're out of your comfort zone.  "I need you to roll underwater basket weaving"  But I never took underwa-...Uhhh...I trigger all the things!  Make a roll and add the light side to the check, if it fails, something to prove for another go at it, and if you succeed it was free...even better if you got to watch someone else doing the same thing as you're coming in.

 

Padawan is beautiful...

I'd imagine that, in some eras, the Jedi might induct experienced Force-users of other traditions in as Knights without making them go through Padawan-ships.

If someone has an alternative site or forum for me to post links send me a PM, do not ask for a direct link, I do not want my mailbox filled with the link requests. I'm trying to offer everyone a chance from one place.

Really hoping someone can share the clone specs and racials. That's what I've been waiting to see. Everyone has always shared details in the past with no issue. 

Well, the people who have it are waist deep in Celebration. I can certainly understand why combing through an RPG book in detail, let alone doing so to post the info here isn’t high on their priority list right now.

Celebrations happen every year...book release info sharing for internet points only happens once (per book)!

No, it doesn’t.

This is only the 10th in the US since they began in 1999, and they’ve been held at irregular intervals. The last (US or international) SWC was April 2017.

Can't just run with the joke?  Not even a little?

With so many, “Why aren’t people who are participating in a multi-day, activity-packed event taking time out of that to post game book info?” posts, it’s hard to tell the jokes apart. 😜

I had another source, but really I know some companies have outright just removed this kind of material from a blog. Did not have Obi-wan though, that was a nice find. Still not A&A though ;-(

I see that "Barrel roll" made it into Star Wars (unless it was available in another spec book)

So when is it going to be retconned to all the other pilot specs?

How about starting skill points for Jedi? Are these like with Force & Destiny, where they start with one fewer point? (3 Career and 2 Spec) 

How about Clone Soldier? Regular amount of starting skill points?

Judging by how many skills each get (6 career skills for Jedi, 8 for Clones), I'd say the Jedi careers get the same starting skills as any F&D career, and the Clones get the same starting skills as any EotE or AoR career.

I just want to express how ridiculously excited I am now that we have the careers and specs spoiled for this! I've been running a Clone Wars campaign for about five months now (we're going on session 8, due to limited gaming time each week and three different campaigns running), and I've been dying for this to release.

I have two Jedi players and a Clone player who will all greatly appreciate this. I plan on allowing the players to re-build their characters using their current XP now that this is available, and I see it tremendously helping each of them! Especially the two Jedi, who will greatly benefit from Padawan over Padawan Survivor.
