Immersion in Destiny – I. A Theme to Die For

Last week, I was trying to convince a friend to have a look at the game, and I was asked how can Star Wars be put on a die?

So naturally, I pointed to the easy stuff: blasters do ranged damage, lightsabers do melee, and that a grenade is destroyed after it explodes amidst the opponent’s’ team. However, I could not go deeper. Therefore, (again) I had a closer look at the cards that we knew already and looked past the fabulous artwork to see how Fantasy Flight Games put the theme on the dice. Well there are a lot of candidates, but here are two I enjoyed very much:

Card Dissection: Take Cover (AW157)

No matter how big or how small, every card in your deck is important, and it is important to look at to each card to evaluate its pros and cons.  A card that may not often get that kind of attention is Take Cover (AW157).  While simple on the surface, it never hurts to break a card down to its core.

Star Wars: Destiny Deck Builder

There have been a couple of these applications popping up recently, as people are starting to look for more resources to store and build their decks.  However, if you are looking for an all-in-one tool, SWDestinyDB is the answer you have been looking for.

Now, mind you, this tool is in BETA status, so it is still being tested and developed, but the developer fafranco82 (@morifinwe) has done an amazing job putting everything in this tool that you could possibly need.  This is MORE than a Deck Builder.

At the top menu, you have four simple options that give you access to everything you could need to support your game.  My decks, allowing you to view your personal and shared deck collection.  My collection, which allows you to keep your card and dice list online. Decklists, which allows you to view others who have shared their deck lists; and cards, the most robust and beautiful, searchable card list on the net.

When you open up your deck, this is the screen you get.  One quick glance, and you will see that all the features that you could possibly want are here at the tip of your fingers.  Your battle field and character cards are highlighted, with images of the cards (once available), and dice counts.  You have a full card list including which cards have dice, and then you get a breakdown of card types, visualization of costs, and even a card draw simulator.  You can add your own description, print a copy to take with you to share, and much more! (Note: This is not an actual deck concept, and I don’t think Han Solo and Admiral Akbar would get along too well.)

Search features let you break down by faction, card type, rarity, set, and even can limit based on your personal collection (if you have logged your collection in the “My collection” section of the tool). … Read More
