Your situation is desperate, but if you maintain your courage, work together, and use your skills and blasters to good effect, you just might survive… and strike a massive blow against the Empire in the process.

At 96 pages, Onslaught at Arda I is full of desperate struggles, tenuous alliances, and large-scale combats against an overwhelming enemy. Moreover, as you fight your way through the adventure’s harrowing battles and delve through its intrigues, you will also encounter optional rules for mass combats and in-depth gazetteers for several new settings that may add new dimensions to your extended Age of Rebellion campaigns.

Whether you work with Jedi to protect the innocent from the dark side, or you dive deep into the slimiest schemes within Jabba’s palace, you’ll find the tools you need to make exciting new decks and explore new strategies.

The Force holds the galaxy of Star Wars together, but only you can determine which side you will fight for: Darkness or Light? All Star Wars, all the time.
