With the loss of the Holocron, it has gotten me thinking. I have all the rules resources from the Holocron, so I will still be able to reference those. However, what concerns me is that there are a few holes in the FAQ, and I'm finding myself searching the WOTC boards more than I'm comfortable with. The FAQ as is is still pretty good, but I'm concerned that we may lose important precendents on the WOTC boards, and most likely it will be without notice. There have also been a few times that I've had to go searching a few different abilities to get an answer. So, I'm going start expanding the FAQ. I want to be able to point to the FAQ for the vast majority of my rules answers, for whenever the stuff on the WOTC Rules forum vanishes.

And this is where I need help. I have a starting point, and I'm going to be reading the full FAQ and comparing Glossary entries to their FAQ entries. But I'm still one person, and quite honestly, my grasp of the rules may color some of what I feel is necessary. So this your chance to help and participate.

What I need from you is:

1. FAQ entries you feel could explain the ability more.
2. Interactions or rules that you feel aren't sufficient in the FAQ.
3. I would love links to Nickname's blue posts on WOTC that you feel should be in the FAQ.

Post all of them in this thread or the thread I'm starting on Bloomilk.

Some things to remember:
1. This is not a rewriting of the rules. Nothing is going to change. I am merely filling the holes that I see or others see to make it a much more complete rules resource.
2. Please double check the FAQ before you post something, it makes things a bit easier.
3. Posting your recomendations does not necessarily mean I will use them.
4. Right now, I'm focusing on just WOTC stuff. I will get to the Vset stuff eventually, but I'm more concerned with WOTC stuff because that is a bit more vast.

So please post away, I could use the help. Once I have the new stuff down, I will likely start talking to people about making a PDF to integrate it to the WOTC FAQ. My goal is to have the stuff I want to add done by the end of July, hopefully potentially making a version of the new Expanded FAQ done by Gencon.

The thing I never got to but always wished was in there was a Resolving Effects type section that covered setup and the pre-activations portion of the round.

Update:

Things that looks like I will be adding is a Resolving Effects type stuff for Pre-game, Pre-turn, and it looks like a timing of events for movement (possibly the priorities of AoOs).

A guide for "acting player".

Slightly expanding the Force Immunity clarifications. NOT GOING TO BE A LIST!!!!!!

FYI There's an "unofficial" list here on Gamers for Force Powers vs Force Immunity, I don't think it's been updated since V-Set 1.

I'm aware of it. It's fine where it is, but adding such a list to the FAQ doesn't really work, imo.

Sorry, I never intended for you to put it in the FAQ, that's be way too much! I only brought it up so you knew that there was a thread working on it, that's all. At the most I would only expect a line saying "for further clarification, there is a Stickied thread in the SWMGamers Rules Forum with a list".

Real life suddenly got very crazy. I doubt I will finish this before Gencon, but I'm still working on it.
