    Though as far as we know only under the New Republic, which had certain currency problems to begin with and apparently still has them as late as 10 after Endor which we get to see when Han tries to use Republic money on Crseih station and no one really wants to take it. Also Corellia and Drall were very isolated during the time and facing economic collapse, so might have been more of a desperation thing. Whilst the Ithor comment could just have been an off hand remark by Jaina. Though of course we have plenty of examples of alternative and local currencies, especially when the Empire collapses and in the waning years of the Old Republic.

    Whilst under the Empire only purely digital money (CSA Vouchers for example) begged to the Imperial credit and high value Commodity money seem to be popular. There is even a pretty hilarious scene in the Third Han Solo Adventure novel when Han demonstrates how he could destroy the value of a backwater worlds local currency using the SW version of a photocopier machine.

    Not really, as just about all worlds we get to see specialize to be able to take part in Galactic Trade in some form.


    Or they just have local versions of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Complementary_currency

    Fair point, I didn't notice they were all in the New Republic Era and beyond, though can I still hope they had them in the Old Republic era to maintain economic independence. I would think it would be true in the early days of the Republic at a minimum and it looks like it did happen before the Clone Wars to an extent. Every time the Republic tightens its grip more and more star systems will fall through its fingers. :)

    Currencies and economic independence are not necessarily related ;) and having a common currency comes with a lot of advantages, especially considering the amount of commerce a large planet will have going on.

    Interesting to note that while the card game has been fairly generic so far, characters appearing in the RPG are remarkably diverse. The Wookiee is the doctor.

    A Wookiee would make a great doctor, or more specifically a surgeon. They would have a steady supply of arms available.

    A new depiction of Corellia? I can behind this look. Also note the distinctively green coloring of that swoop and its rider's clothes.

    And...Mirax?

    And...diversity!

    Excellent! This I prove of!!

    Question- will it contain Duro? Isn't that world part of the Corellian Sector during the Galactic Civil War?

    Nubia and Aurea (of all planets) made it in, so I don't see why it wouldn't.

    I'm very curious what fluff it will contain. This does make even more exited about the Rebellion/Empire one. Maybe we'll get lucky and they make an Imperial Sourcebook [face_praying] . I know the WEG one is awesome but it's impossible to find at a decent price.

    That is awesome news. I am really hoping for some new historical info to be included, maybe on their kings and queens.

    Hopefully they can live up to the quote and at least mention some big Corellian ships, that are of a unique Corellian design.:)
