I am planning to update www.starstuff.co.uk and the char gen but lifes been a bit crazy the last few months - I've recently moved house (after splitting with GF) and my work situation is undergoing some major changes so I've just not had time to do anything.
I have got the 2E rules and have had a quick flick through - TBH, I'm not sure if I like them or not. Some parts seem good (e.g. the new classes), but some bits I'm not so sure on (such as the teep rules and ship combat).
However, like I said, I've just skim read it so I may have got the wrong impression. I will read through the new edition in more depth soon - depending on what I think will really determine what I do with my char gen.
