I’m excited to finally announce that Acquisitions Incorporated is coming to PAX Australia this year! We’re switching things up for this adventure though and moving Ac Inc. to a "galaxy far far away". That’s right, Omin Dran has opened an AI franchise in the Outer Rim and we’ll be playing Fantasy Flight’s Edge of the Empire.
I’ll be taking on the roll of game master for this adventure and my players will be Jerry Holkins, Holly Conrad, Kris Straub, and making his first appearance at the AI table, Jesse Cox. In this universe Omin Dran is a smooth talking smuggler with a beat up freighter and a crew of miscreants.
I’m really looking forward to this game. Obviously I’m a huge Star Wars fan but beyond that I just really like what this game does mechanically. Edge of the Empire has a really interesting core mechanic based on assembling these large pools of dice, rolling them and then divining the outcome like some fortune teller reading chicken bones. It is possible in EotE to succeed and fail at a check at the same time. It’s an incredible system that really lends itself to cooperative storytelling. If you’ve never seen it played before I think you’re in for a treat. Don’t worry about not knowing the system, I’ll be teaching it and explaining the mechanics as we play.
So what does aquisitions Inc. look like in a different setting? What’s Omin Dran like when he’s a Twi’lek scoundrel instead of a half-elf cleric? Who is the mysterious droid K-3RS and is he really force sensitive? All these questions and more will be answered on October 27th! Come watch us live at PAX or catch the show on Twitch.
