MER Episode 84: Everyone in the Dice Pool

Written by Admin | posted in Listen, Mos Eisley Radio | 2 Comments

The delay on getting this episode out really couldn’t be helped, but it is ironic to note that some obligations got in the way because Obligation is one of the most unique features of the new Fantasy Flight RPG Star Wars: Edge of the Empire. Leo and Evan take you on a walk-through of the beta book to help you get ready for when you’re able to get your hands on either it or the Beginner Game coming later this year. They have plenty of SWTOR talk for you, as always, and they also get excited reviewing the expansions for the X-Wing Miniatures Game.

Feel free to come discuss SWTOR, Edge of the Empire, X-Wing or anything else you might have on your mind over at the MER forums!

    Thanks guys for another great episode. And I want to thank you for a summary of the new FFG Star Wars RPG. I picked the beta book up at Celebration VI and besides a quick glance at it in the hotel that night I haven’t had the time to jump into it, but I got to say with what you have said about the core game system I think I’m going to stay away from this one. While I do like that they are leaving the Jedi out of the game and the experience buys new talents and traits system but the combination of the dice system, obligations, and no basic classes like a soldier (really?!) I happen to love FFG’s Deathwatch game and am eagerly looking forward to Only War but I don’t think I’d enjoy this one and think I’ll stay with WEG or Sage Star Wars. I guess I’m just too old school (I still prefer AD&D 2nd ed.), ha.

    I just want to say it had nothing to do with your presentation of the core rules, which was excellent, and all about the game itself. Thanks for shearing light on it, even if not everyone is sold by it.

    Keep up the awesome work!

    I understand, as I loved the heck out of the WEG system. And I haven’t quite played enough to make a determination of EotE compared to WEG, but I do know that I already like it better than the WotC D20 system.
