    So, I'm going to go against the grain here and hopefully not get too many flames. I have things I like, and things I don't. I like the classes, and find the different way of leveling up after 5th interesting. I find the idea of episodes an interesting take and like the idea of doing that. I do love the idea that you've emphasized technology, not magic. That's the way it *should* be. The artwork looks rather cartoony but I guess that's a matter of taste. A couple big disappointments though. Races. Aturen. Seriously. The game is supposed to be canon from what I read, so you created a non-canon elf species with the absurd idea that the Nox actually shared some of their technology with them. Your play test form even explicitly mentions them as an elf - this is not D&D, please don't shoehorn in D&D races with gimmicks. There are other canon species that could have been put in instead. This one is just, for me, an awful idea. If you really want to veer off canon to make your own stuff up, I'd rather see it in optional splat books. I guess as a GM (love 'gatemaster'!) I could always ban it from use but knowing the would be in the Living game re-adds the cringe. Phoenix site. Ugh. Again, this would be better as a splat book. I would like to see SGC be central to the game as it was in the series. When I hear Stargate RPG that's what I think of rather than first thinking of a secret site. I hope you rethink this some. Or if not a splat book for SGP, still can make a reference to it, but the complete abandonment of SGC is a huge let down (and this is from someone who was super-excited about it). I think this game has a lot of potential. What you have here is a good start, but could be great with changes. I *had* been eager to even contribute to the Kickstarter, but now I'm not quite as gung-ho about it as I was and am not sure I want to invest large amounts of money. I'll definitely keep an eye out for any beta updates, and continue to re-evaluate. I really, really want to like and play this and I do appreciate the effort you've put into it thus far.
  1. Greater Kansas City area (on the KS side, Olathe for those nearby).
  2. I would actually use the previously published rules - rather than homebrew pa... er starfinder. That being said, I'm excited to see how this new version of the game turns out - already have plans to get it, and any ensuing splat books!
