For fans of both Star Wars: Legacy and the role-playing game, this campaign guide is a great resource. With plenty of new material beyond the comics, it also serves as a good resource for the era itself. My only disappointments are minor: Bantha Rawk's build seems inappropriate considering his back story and demonstrated abilities, and no inclusion of stats for Force-ghost Luke. The Legacy Destiny option is in a word, sweet. The art varies throughout between decent and amazing, so visual appeal is there as well.
<Spoilers Notice> I've seen others mention a lack of Lando legacy however, given the dynamic of the book a creative player and storyteller could come to an agreement to create one. Though, one of the Legacies listed by all available material would not be as listed, viz the Solo Legacy would either be Hapan Royal or Fel Imperial family, end spoiler. As for the rest the book will need supplimented with at least the core from this producer as your character set-up does run differently from the old West-End Games books, Dark Empire Sourcebook and the System present here are almost in a different language but, with Legacy Era Guide with the suppliment of the core book it won't take long to get a good start to a rich character. No faults here from the seller it just seems in need of an update from the publisher to correct.
This product has an awesome cover, and the inside definetely matches it. Along with a small selection of new character options and new prestige classes (namely, the Imperial Knight), this book is mostly fluff text and a few NPCs to put into your game.
The next section may enrage any hardcore Legacy fans, but I feel its neccessary to gain full insight into the campaign setting.
This is based in the Legacy era, which takes place 130(?) years after the Battle of Yavin. This means that the Galactic Alliance has both risen and fallen, same as the threat of the Yuuzan Vong and the New Jedi Order. The whole factor of non-movie storylines mean the story is more freeform for the casual Star Wars plan. That is probably its greatest strength.
However, my biggest complaints as someone who has limited exposure to the Legacy storyline are as follows:
-The exact same storyline is taking place. The empire is back in full swing. Nothing of use has happened as a result of Luke Skywalker and the Rebel Alliance. -Limited exposure once again for anybody to the Jedi Order. Granted it is more prominent than it was in the dark times, but the fact is we really don't need more than one "Jedi are in Exile" campaign setting in our library. -Every single antagonist has a lightsaber!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you are a fan of the Legacy era, buy this book now. It's on the cheap and is a good supplement if you ignore the gimmickiness of the arsenal of enemies.
