Star Wars Roleplaying Adversary Decks (September 5)

Enhance your Star Wars roleplaying games with Star Wars Roleplaying Adversary Decks. Each of the twenty cards in an Adversary Deck represents an adversary drawn from the Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook, the Age of Rebellion Core Rulebook, or one of their supplements. Adversary cards ensure that all your adversaries’ key statistics and information remain readily accessible while card art and description text help you set the scene and bring your adversaries to life. Choose from any of three initial Adversary Decks: Scum and Villainy, Imperials and Rebels, and Citizens of the Galaxy.

• With the Scum and Villainy Adversary Deck, you can easily populate any palace, cantina, or seedy locale with gritty gangsters, criminals, and outlaws – both notorious and amateur.
• The Imperials and Rebels Adversary Deck gives you immediate access to thuggish enforcers, scheming politicians, and valiant freedom fighters of all levels, thrusting you more fully into the heat of the Galactic Civil War.
• The Citizens of the Galaxy Adversary Deck introduces a wide range of security guards, mechanics, politicians, and droids to add details and dramatic potential to your everyday interactions and encounters.

Star Wars: Force and Destiny RPG Beta (September 8)

star-wars-force-of-destinyIn the Star Wars: Force and Destiny roleplaying game, players assume the roles of characters who possess the rare and dangerous ability to touch and use the Force. Will they fight injustice and oppression, will they fall to the temptations of the dark side? In Force and Destiny, your external conflicts always have moral consequence.

The Force and Destiny beta is a limited edition, 256-page, softcover rulebook that includes all the information on character creation, Force talents, adversaries, equipment, and vehicles that you need to run a complete campaign.

It is important to note that some of the elements in this beta are not representative of the final product. Instead, the beta is intended to generate useful feedback for the game’s developers so that the final product will integrate the Force and Force users into the best possible roleplaying experience. Accordingly, it features comparatively less art and background material, and other elements are similarly focused toward a concise playtest experience.

Star Wars Dice Bags (September 12)
