304 System Neutral: Star Wars Force and Destiny

System Neutral is a project where we talk to GMs and players of other APs about our favorite game systems to discuss what we like, love, and could do without. 

We’re joined on this episode by Angela from Fandible, and GM of SoloShot! We talk about Fantasy Flight’s (now discontinued) Force and Destiny system. We recorded this in November of 2019, so please ignore anything we say about buying the system, or lack of discussion of Rise of Starwalker.
