    Congrats! I know you guys have been waiting that book for a while, from what I heard it's was "on the boat" since February or March until mid October.

    How did they manage the integration of the Force aspect in a mostly Jedi free environment? Our neighbor brought himself the Force and Destiny starter box, and before we might start a game I would like to know if they stray far from canon by having Jedi (?) at the timeline of the original trilogy (?) around.

    I’ve to admit, I never did any research on that part of the RPG before as I was leaning more to the Scoundrel/Outer Rim setting.

    We play a pretty mixed environment of characters based on F&D, EotE, and the Rebel sourcebook. Each of the games can be played together but the campaign books appear to be designed for those trees only. The force users are pretty weak so to speak - the progression reminds me of how hard it was to become a Jedi originally on Star Wars Galaxies. Force and Destiny takes place technically during the 'dark times' and then the OT. Basically, don't expect someone to roll a force user and be shooting force lightning for a while. If you DM another game and add a Force user make sure to include 'morality' (light side / dark side) checks for force users. If you skim over the starter kit your neighbor bought you'll see the few differences.

    And ah yes, the 'boat'. I'm pretty sure that the first order sank and then it had to be re-shipped. Or Disney held them off from releasing the book due to spoilers for Rebels/The Last Jedi (I have only started reading it and haven't seen anything shocking yet).

    The new app for Imperial Assault is great! Love that I can play this game solo now, and even with a group some welcome changes (including more role-play-ey) elements come with it.

    Plus, now I can say that a board game company made the best AI in a Star Wars game the same year EA released a Battlefront title.
