I Like the Idea of a soft reboot for this game. Reclassify the Rebel and Navy factions into Military/Command and Jedi and Sith into Force. Change the Death Star into a general dial and then we are good to go.
Ps. As an example you wound still have Rebels, but also have Republic and Resitance faction cards....but all three would be considered Military/Command and can be used for one another.
Yeah my idea is actually really similar. But I don't lob Force as a sub faction into it. As we have seen from this game it's hard to justify a full faction of force users.
I would instead focus on the role, Fringe, Military, Diiplomacy, and then use traits for all the factions - Jedi, Republic, Rebellion etc... For example as a Jedi Consuler (though that title might no longer be canon) Yoda would be a Diplomat and Jedi traited.
I like your affiliation card idea that then actually connects the dots between traited type sets. Not entirely sure how it works but I think it could.
Or better yet, insteadk of forming personal grievances, why not focus on the points instead of the people?
Royal is actually referencing a more elegant time when we would face off in games of the LCG on Friday Night force struggle to settle differences of opinion, mostly over which cards were busted and ruining the game.
It was a good time and we would watch the showdown with commentary.
I'm pretty sure the comment was in jest and directed at all of us discussing stuff unrelated to the original thread.
