    Next Sourcebook - Knights of the Old Republic

    The next sourcebook to be released for the Star Wars Saga Edition is the Knights of the Old Republic (August 15th?).

    What are your hope, fears, wishes, concerning the new product?

    I for one am hoping for lots of content covering the Tales of the Jedi comics. Although I fear with all the hype over the KotOR video game and comics that there will not be very much info.

    I would also like to see some of the gear from the KotOR video game as well. Computer Spikes were a nice addition to Threats of the Galaxy, and I would like to see advanced medpacks, life support packs, and antidote kits, since I have added these in my game already it would be nice to see official write-ups for them.

    Anyone else?

    This is my hope/fear as well. I want a lot of the style and material to come from the "Tales" comics, but get the impression that it will be predominantly "Kotor" related information (hence the name of the supplement).

    No, but it is quite different from Tales and I liked the Tales comics a lot, that's all.

    In a perfect world, the sourcebook would draw from both properties.

    Anyone pick up the sourcebook yet? Any opinions or thoughts on it? At some point I'll need to pick it up for my own compulsive issues, but I was kind of curious to see if I should make it a priority.

    I got a bit confused as when I went to my local Borders the other day two copies were sitting on the shelf. I did a quick flip, but as I am not running a Saga campaign for the moment skipped the purchase.

    It's very possible that they (purposefully or unknowingly) stocked the books early. It happens. Now that it's out, I'm gonna have to cruise to a local bookstore and see if I can get a quick flip-through. I'm curious about exactly what the book has to offer.

    I actually still have my D6 Tales of the Jedi Sourcebook, but I'm curious how this new book will differ due to the influx of material from the KotOR games (and the fact that it's written post-prequel trilogy). What we really needed was a Saga version of the Power of the Jedi sourcebook...oh well.

    And then, a month from now, they'll be realeasing the Force Unleashed game and RPG sourcebook which, of course, I'll have to buy...and the cycle continues.

    I got mine!!!!!!!!!!!

    Best RPG Sourcebook EVER!!!!!!!!!!!






    Now that that is out of my system only one bad thing. Weapon and Armor Accessories. They use an upgrade slot cost that is detailed in the Scum and Villany book, NOT this one. So far that is the only bad thing.

    Everything else is freaking awesome!

    There is sooooooooo much freaking information its like info overload!

    New things:

    11 new species; Arkanian, Cathar, Draethos, Feeorin, Khil, Kissai and Massassi, Miraluka, Rakata, Selkath and Snivvian

    A brief look at different Group Concepts like a Corporate Investigative Team, etc...
    New Talent Trees for ALL of the classes

    New Feat combinations; if you have a combination of feats you gain a bonus use/action that you may perform with them. Seems incomplete and I can only guess that there will be more in the coming books.

    21 new Feats; and they are pretty cool!

    New Talent Trees for some PrCs

    New Force Powers; Energy Resistance, Fear, Force Scream, Force Whirlwind, Ionize, Kinetic Combat, Resist Force, Slow, Valor, and Wound

    New General Force Talents also!

    New Force Techniques; Dominate Mind (AWESOME!), Imporved Energy Resistance, Improved Force Stun, Improved Force Slam, Improved Ionize, Improved Kinetic Combat, Improved Resist Force, Improved Valor, Improved Vital Transfer, and Language Absorption!

    Info on different Jedi Organizations

    New Force Using traditions, The Jal Shey, Keetael, The Krath, Luka Sene, and the Order of Shasa

    Tons of new weapons and gear including, Pulse-wave weapons, implants, visors, energy shields, and the stealth field generator

    Tons of new ships and vehicles including swoops, speeder bikes, a new landspeeder and airspeeder, starfighters, and capital ships

    The introduction of Gear Templates; add on a template from a galactic manufacturer such as Cinnagar and the item gains special properties!

    Weapon Templates

    Armor Templates

    New Droids; and including some detailed info on HK models.

    A section on an Old Republic Campaign

    A Galactic Gazetteer

    Detailed information on the Jedi, the Sith, The Republic, and the Mandolorains. Yes they all have their own chapter and includes write ups of personalities from each organization.

    The final chapter is a list of write ups of Allies and Opponent NPCs.


    Man this book rocks!
