*Warning* Hey Edge of the Empire fans, we screw up a few of the rules in the beginning of the game but we get slightly better later on we promise.
A simple smuggling mission goes awry when a high-profile stowaway sneaks aboard a ship full of ne’er-do-wells.

Really enjoyed the 1st episode.
And your droid is now Bakerstreet in my head
Enjoying the first episode from you guys. Just wanted to let you know that the system will take a moment to learn. It took me a few sessions to figure out how to play. Once you get it, it is fun.
Is there any specific reason why you went no Jedi? I’ve heard in Star Wars universe games due to the power difference between the Jedi characters and their suggested foes that you should do all Jedi or no Jedi.
To be pedantic, Edge of the Empire doesn’t actually have Jedi character options, only force sensitive. But from playing Force and Destiny in the Solo Shot, at least in the early stages I don’t think a Jedi would overpower the rest of the game. There are certainly some Jedi powers that are ridiculous, but the worst offenders are next to impossible to get, especially at character creation.
But I said no Jedi/force powers for a few reasons. Jedi are basically space wizards, and we all know how I feel about magic! I also wanted to keep the game as streamlined as possible, since I knew the dice were going to present a learning curve (force powers introduce yet another weird die into your rolls). And finally, since this is set during the original trilogy, force powers are supposed to be exceedingly rare. It’s so easy to create compelling non-force users in Edge of the Empire, that’s the route I took.
