Echoes of the Past

Friend of the blog Peter ‘Maveritchell’ Thompson has once again put forth some serious blood, sweat, and tears to craft a new Edge of the Empire heist, “Echoes of the Past“. I helped work on this one a bit as well, providing editing and design feedback. The heist itself is full of secrets and puzzles, it begs to be explored and offers tantalizing rewards to clever players. It’s something that I’m proud to have helped with and a top-notch product.

    Hi. I asked a question on that reddit page, but heard nothing back. Maybe I can repost it here to hear your thoughts, after all you seem to be pretty well-versed in EotE rules?

    I was under the impression that you would only have upgraded difficulty if it is an opposed check or if the GM flips a destiny point to manually upgrade it, this also seems to be the consensus at the FFG forum (there’s a thread on exactly this in the GM section there). However I see that at numerous places in Echoes of the Past (which I love btw, great work) it calls for upgraded tests, where seemingly there is no “opposition”, with no reference to flipping destiny points. So is there something I am missing?

      Hopefully the author will chime in here to give his views, but I have routinely offered upgraded difficulty checks in my games. Though the default difficulty for unopposed checks is, of course, all purple dice, I have upgraded those dice as appropriate to the situation. When a routine challenge suddenly becomes far more deadly, it may be the time to upgrade.

      I don’t know what the stance on that is from the FFG designers, but that’s at least how I play the game.

    Very Nice! To make it look more professional a easier on the eye, I’d suggest using a two column text page.
