After looking forward to the legacy system for many weeks, i was slightly disappointed at the very unilateral family tree system... I had created this entire canon for my characters, nuances, interrelations that completely excited me. i.e. my imperial agent's sister is his former friend, current rival's wife. and yet i can only have at most, two of those relationships show.

Anyone else wish this system could be a little more complex and fleshed out?

Also, i would looove an apprentice option. or something similar, but less familial than "adopted child".

Its the first iteration of legacy, its simple for many reasons (managing resources, need to playtest, haven't fleshed out the features). No feature should be expected to be complex until many updates down the line.
Its all the force's fault.

Corso is my sidekick..or more specifically that little monkey you dress up in a tux and sit in a corner to look interesting but in reality doesn't really do anything.

Yeah, think of this as Legacy beta - We'll see it expanded upon.

By the way, am I the only one who noticed that you can't add a parent? You have to wipe the tree and start from scratch if you want to add one.

Yeah you can only have 2 "lateral" connections with those being defined as sibling, associate, rival, spouse. I had originally envisioned a much more complex legacy arrangement with everything hanging off of a central character (he has three children, one of his children had a friend who was a chiss hunter, the hunter had a cousin that was an agent, etc.) Unfortunately I couldn't really pull it off the way I wanted.

I'd like to have the ability to connect more than just 2 "lateral" characters and more types than the four listed above. Hopefully that comes in the next iteration.
