    This sounds awesome. I can't wait to see how this thing flows.

    It was a really good listen, particularly in showing how a bunch of players with zero experience with EotE's dice pool mechanic could get a grasp on it (there's quite a difference between the first encounter/episode and second episode) as well as how flexible the system can be. While it is a bit more codified than D6 in needing the spending of Advantages, Threats, and so forth to pull off "cool stuff," it's definitely a lot friendlier to that style of play than most of the d20 games, even Saga Edition, which is still my favorite d20 system by a wide margin, and one I still play even with FFG's "new hawtness" on the market.

    The post show discussion after the second episode is definitely worth listening to, as the players give their feedback on the system, only one of whom aside from the GM had any experience with it beforehand.

    Yeah, I've been following it since the first episode. It actually turned me on to the system, and I'm open to the idea of getting the book and checking it out more completely.

    Greetings fringers! We've been playing FFGs Star Wars Edge of the Empire Beginner Game (box set) this past month and are totally enjoying it! Played thru the introductory scenario using the six pregen characters (including the two extra downloaded from FFG). We're playing thru the free continuation scenario (also downloaded from FFG) now. The game mechanic is very visual and quick to learn, and game play is skills based and narrative driven. Big overall thing ... no target numbers!
