I had thought of this a while back not long after first seeing OP1's Elite Attack Die resource, but haven't bothered trying to actually flesh out the idea until now. I'm considering buying a couple of blank D8's and trying these out.


I'm hoping we see an offical EDD similar to this as a participation prize in one of the upcoming OP events, especially with there being comparatively fewer ways to modify defense rolls. This also could encourage people to save their BS tokens for defending, which might make for some interesting meta-shifts if it were to ever become an official resource.

Excellent idea and the change in seeing battlestations used more for defending is a good one.

Ok, I'll bite.

5/8 sides are evades. 2/8 are blank. 1/8 gives you an extra critical hit instead!

In a few games we've joked about a resource that adds 5 cards to your damage deck. Those cards have crit hit effects that repair/buff/etc. your ship.

It would be amusing, but makes absolutely no sense thematically.

That could be just as game shifting, throw-your-arms-the-air thrilling as Warp Core Breach or Direct Hit. Sounds fun! laugh

Wow! I didn't expect to actually hear that something like this was in the works.

I still need to buy a couple of blank white d8's to make some mock-ups of these and test them out. I'm curious about what the other local players will think of them.

Let me guess... it's a d20?

Just kidding.

I did make a couple for fun's sake. I should post pics! Nice to hear there is such a thing in the works.
