So, here’s the best information I’ve seen so far about the new Star Wars RPG coming from Fantasy Flight.
It’s also the worst news I could have gotten about the new Star Wars RPG coming from Fantasy Flight.
My first real post on this blog was about how utterly awful I find the Warhammer Fantasy, 3rd edition RPG to be. I’ve tried it again since that first experience — and I really, really, hate that game. It’s obvious that someone likes it, and you know, good for them — but I hate that game.
And now it’s confirmed that Star Wars will be using the whole “narrative dice” thing. So, I guess this will be the first incarnation of a Star Wars RPG that I will not be owning or playing. Oh well. Can’t win ’em all.
Don’t get me wrong. I love a lot of what Fantasy Flight does. Just look at my recent explosion of joy over the Warhmmer: Invasion LGC. And you know, I was so excited that this weekend we went out and picked up the Lord of the Rings LCG. And it was awesome. But as long as FF is using the Narrative Dice mechanic for new RPGs… I’m out.
