Not a ton of surprises with this preview. This includes Chapters 5-7 of AGE of the Empire.
Here are some of the highlights:
- Lightsabers and Damage: Their damage is not penetrating but still mitigate AR. This allows for the Pierce Armor stunt to remain relevant and balances with the ridiculous damage they could previously do during playtesting.
- Talents and Weapons: Each weapon states which talents are applicable. Just seemed like a useful addition.
- Force Rituals: They are in and pretty much unchanged from how they were previously presented.
- Force Points: I wanted to keep this in as an optional rule if folks wanted to run a low Force-centric game. Wish it could get its own segment but it does not work with the formatting.
