The Seeker book is not new, but the deck is!
Ah yeah you're right. I'm not following many of the F&D books beyond the Sentinel one tbh. :S
Every time this thread pops up, I think that a new Armada wave was announced.
Speaking of new Armada waves though...
Nothing yet sorry.
You know that you have contracted a good firm to make a job for you when you get this as a reply - "You answer faster than an A-wing on a green 5 forward", instead of a regular "thank you for a fast reply".
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh that's what the green was.

I tried the U-wing and Sabine's TIE for the first time yesterday. The U-wing is a disaster. I've had no problems taking it out early when I've flown against it, and I thought I knew how I would fly it. It got shot down without having fired a single shot itself. I can think of it as a usable support ship, flying in the background and handing out tokens to the other ship, but that's not my style of flying. Sabine's TIE was really fun though. I flew it with Captain Rex and the new "suppresion fire" card is really annoying to the other player. I got a 100-0 win with this list
MF - Chewbacca (TFA), expertise, MF title card, Bistan, Gunner
Sabine's TIE - Captain Rex
X-wing - Biggs Darklighter, R2D2
It's not a list that can compete in the current meta, but it's a lot of fun to play in a casual setting.

New article on the C-ROC! The little external cargo containers make my indescribably happy.
Two sessions ago, I rolled a triumph and a despair on a persuasion check to have a valued contact/friend of the party track down a Krayt Dragon Pearl. The triumph went towards getting it (I succeeded, but used the triumph to reduce the "searching time"). The despair, I said, would come up later - bounty hunters hired by the Empire, or an inquisitorial aide darksider, ambush us.
Last session they did. And maybe, having our tech with an existing critical injury, being hit with a triumph rolled attack from a disruptor rifle wasn't great. And maybe the GM rolling 97 on the crit chart was also bad. And maybe that being 107 (+10 for existing crit) and causing him to lose a limb was worse.
But the real positive here is that in rolling four triumphs personally, I've never once been affected.
Just thinking about how cool a Second Edition of Age of Rebellion Core Book would be with, among other things, an updated version of its history of the Rebellion section taking into consideration the new continuity, including Rebels and Rogue One, the Partisans, etc. While most of what is currently there remains the same and is relevant, the Starkiller portion remaining there is a bit . . . weird.
It's not affecting gameplay though, so I can't see why they'd waste time and effort on fluff. They can just as easily add the information to a sourcebook for the Spy or something.
I just played my first game of Armada. Oh man.
The ships are really pretty, aren't they?
I should really probably play the actual game one day, since I have the starter set and a bunch of other ships too...
New X-Wing faq (includes some rather significant errata)
More C-ROC previews - focusing on the M3-A Interceptor it comes with:
Oh man I was really hoping we'd get the QF and Hammerheads in Armada!
And even better? A RAE SLOANE card.
Missa ab iPhona mea est.
Very handsome models - and very nice to see we get not one but two Hammerheads.
Is that also a Grand Inquisitor card?
Yes it is, Taalcon
Is it bad that my first though about those Hammerheads is 'sexy'?

And X-wing wave 11 announced,
Three small ships, I like that. The rebel gunship seems to have a lot of crew slots, so possibly a new support ship. The scum ship is a bomber and the TIE aggressor gets twin laser turrets.
