So...haven't seen a thread about Edge of the Empire here.
Has anyone read and played the Beta? How does it compare to Saga edition?
My opinion ths far, and I have only skimmed the EoTE Beta is that Saga Core Rulebook is superior AND will stay superior in terms of rules even after all 3 core rulebooks for EoTE are released. The reason for that is diversity of character choice. Saga has more feats and talents. The way EoTE is set out, it just cannot compare, in my opinion (note I have yet to carefully read the rules, much less play)
Also, the decision to leave Force Users this book 3 to be released in 2015 is a greedy and stupid choice, IMO. Jedi and Sith are iconic to SW. Without them, you might as well have the license for Firefly/Serenity or Babylon 5. Would dedicating a few pages of rules to them be too much work? Ofcourse not. They just wanted high sales figures for their books in 2015, when normally sales would be petering out so they kept them for there. It worked for them with WH40K...but I hope it doesn't work for them here and they are forced to release Force rules early due to poor sales (sorry, but I am angry they did this cheap move)
There are a few pathetic rules for playing a Force Sensitive, but they are extremely barebones.
