    Very good two episodes so far.

    Brad does a great job pulling everything together.

    Many good voices and quips to make you laugh all the way through.

    Checked out YouTube and Fantasy Flight Games for more info on this system; very good.

    Checked out YouTube for info on the Star Wars Dice dice rolling app and was not fully impressed; though digital dice rolling around are always cool.

    Would be nice if the app did the calculations after you rolled it so all you had to do was just read the results and not have to push, click, and calculate the final results.

    ^5 for Michael for finding Brad and coordinating these events.



    1. Jonathon,
      We just recently settled on a name for the Campaign (since those eps will be starting soon, it was time). We picked “Outter Rim: Into the Fire,” but my first choice was “all the voices.” I think brad does such a good job of that.

    Being a Star Wars nerd, not to the extreme but enough so, this was a lot of fun to listen to and it makes me want to play it. I’m not 100% sure that I follow everything with the combat or checks, but it was making more and more sense as it went along.

    1. Yeah, for a ‘the trial’ we didn’t do as much explaining as we’ve tried to do since. Hopefully by the time you get to the end it makes more sense. It’s a lot of fun. I really enjoy the advantage / set-back mechanic. How you can succeed but be in a bad spot or fail but have an advantage. It forces everyone to be involved for every roll. By far that’s the number one thing I noticed. The whole table was watching and engaged in every dice roll. big winner in my book

    I hope with the new SW movie coming out next month that you guys will consider returning to playing the FFG SW rpg. Maybe the beginner adventure for Force and Destiny or the beginner adventure for The Force Awakens. Would love to hear you play either of those as one of your Trials.
