    Not seeing much EU here aside from the points Gorefiend made... but that Force Stasis card -- is that Mara fighting rebels? Cool.

    With only a cursory glance at some cards, I noticed something about Kuati guards, whose outfits were based on Giddean Danu's. That's pretty nice sourcing.

    Oh there are other things here and there, like a HRD, a Nightsister, the Tallon Role, Rebel Troopers with gear from SWG etc.

    Also An'ya Kuro?

    Plus Mara healing a Stormtrooper?

    I liked the card showing a Kuati dock with a Star Destroyer inside. As well as the Coruscant Defense Fleet.

    On Coruscant!

    ...Lots of new stuff there, new perspectives, places, maybe even new (potential) characters -- and all in all some great spotlights on many different aspects of the GCW, making the Galaxy look like an exciting and expansive place once again.
    I don't know the least bit about CCGs either, but the pictures and the films/EU balance are both very well done IMO.

    I quite like the Kuati Security Team pictures. I think thats new isn't it? Don't recall Kuati security forces ever being represented visually before.

    Why Kren-Blista Vanee, you're looking awfully young and spry these days...

    edit: hm, the "hand's blessing" almost looks like she's performing last rites... I know it wasn't until Pestage that the idea of the dark side as a "religion" took hold, but it'd be interesting if there was some sort of cultish reverence for the Hand or the Emperor. It'd have to be a really narrow sort of thing, peculiar perhaps only to stormies or COMPNOR.


    And I, too, am curious about those ancient monument things -- I don't recognize them.

    Since I am unschooled in the art of internet stuff, I cannot post two of my favorite cards. Both the Rebel Fleet card and Home One card are very good looking pieces of art.

    Yeah, I'm lost. Edge of the Empire and the card game are completely different things?

    Yep -- Edge of the Empire is the rulebook for the new pen and paper RPG, but FFG is also making a new card game and a new minis game (X-wing).

    Basically. Card games have pictures, RPG has text (and some pictures), and minis have spaceships. Who cares about the actual games? :p

    Good sourcing, but questionable worldbuilding -- why is the Kuati senator wearing a guard uniform? Or are the guards wearing senatorial clothes? Or is everybody just in a style of street clothes that's incredibly popular, incredibly specific, and incredibly long-lasting in trendiness?

    Havac , perhaps he's got a whole Padmé Handmaiden thing going on? Disguises and such.


    CooperTFN, ahhh nice chapeau then. Given that the Imperial advisors wear their native outfits, maybe that means ol' penis hat from ROTJ is Kuati?

    And if Palpatine came to work one day wearing a pink t-shirt, would all these guys do that as well?
