STAR WARS (R): Age of Rebellion (TM) Beta Update #2

News From the Developers of the Age of Rebellion Beta

Hello Star Wars®: Age of Rebellion™ beta testers!

The next update (pdf, 878 KB) to the Age of Rebellion beta is now available! It includes new items (in red) as well as all the previous updates to the beta. Additionally, there is a dedicated thread in the General Discussion forum in which you can discuss any feedback directly related to this week’s update. As always, you can email us directly at [email protected] to best ensure we see your feedback too. Feedback Focus In each update, we ask for you to concentrate your efforts on a certain aspect of the Age of Rebellion rules that we would like to focus on next. This will allow us to take a deeper look at individual features, and help facilitate more in-depth discussions. Keep in mind, however, that these topics are just a suggestion, and you are welcome to continue testing whatever aspect of the rules you wish at your own pace. Any and all feedback is welcome at any time.

This update, we would like you to focus your attention and discussion on Chapter VII: Starships and Vehicles, specifically the profiles in the second half of the chapter. In your sessions, give your group access to some starships or vehicles, and play through several combats with them. While you are playing, consider the following questions:

  • Do any of the starships or vehicles cause issues or questions during play?
  • Are there any starships or vehicles that feel too powerful or weak?
  • Are there any starships or vehicles that feel too expensive or inexpensive?

Official Playtesting Report For the next couple rounds of testing, we would like to try a different method of feedback submission. For this, we would like those of you who are willing to go the extra mile to write up an official playtesting report and e-mail it to us. Each of these reports will be directly reviewed by the design team, making them one of the best ways to have your feedback heard and considered. If you or your group is interested in submitting an official playtesting report, download the playtest report guidelines (pdf, 83 KB).

We look forward to reading all of your feedback. Thank you for all your hard work. We appreciate your help in making Age of Rebellion the best game experience possible!
