Does this require proprietary dice?

yes this uses the narrative dice system made popular but their star wars line of rpgs. if you already own some of those dice then your set.

there is a conversion guide to convert standard dice over but that's just a headache.

while yes it does use a proprietary dice system it's really well done and not everyone needs a set. you could get two sets for sure and that should cover most sessions. 3 sets with higher xp characters may come in handy.

At first I was against a dice proprietary dice system until the first time I played and was hooked from there.

Just downloaded and yes its missing.

The funny thing is (Just checked in my print version) the missing image is a computer showing an Error message :-)

P239 is missing the City picture. It appears to be a problem on Apple devices

So far so good-I am quite inspired by a generic rpg using those crazy star wars dice

Any "Evil Hat-style" discounts for those of us who purchased the physical book already? An additional $20 seems a bit steep for the convenience of an electronic copy for reference when we've already bought into the core book and 2 sets of dice.

Would be nice, but given that it is FFG and the game is selling like crazy, I doubt it

Comp copies.. hmm I remember dark hehresy 2nd edition had literally broken spine of the book and some had traded off for a new copy. But yeah, I don't think they would do comp copies... of course you gotta find it out for yourself in the end to make sure.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
