So, I'm a big fan of Star Wars. Salt of the earth, love it to death. It's good shit. I'm also a big fan of Tabletop RPGs. Salt of the earth, love it to death. Since I'm posting this thread in Role Playing Games, I think you can see where I'm going with this.

Fantasy Flight Games has been making a Star Wars RPG for a few years now, and it's pretty damn good. It's not the first attempt at a Star Wars RPG; West End Games and Wizards of the Coast both made their own systems before Fantasy Flight gained the license, but for my money, this is definitely the most unique one. Instead of relying on numerical dice rolls to determine success like in DnD, this system instead relies on it's own, unique set of dice with different symbols on it to determine success. There's a lot more to it, of course, but we can get to that at a later time. Suffice it to say, it leads into a much more narrative and roleplaying based game than what most other systems offer.

There's three different game lines out, each of them representing a different area of the Star Wars universe and introducing their own set of mechanics for you to use.

Edge of The Empire - The first one released, Edge of the Empire focuses primarily on Smugglers, Bounty Hunters, and other seedy elements in the Outer Rim of the galaxy. It also introduces the Obligation mechanic, which represents the amount of debt you have to someone or something. This doesn't necessarily have to be a financial debt you have towards a greedy Hutt, but could be anything from an addiction, the sting of betrayal, or even just a needy family you need to check in on every now and then. The higher your obligation, the more trouble it could cause you in the long run, such as bounty hunters coming after you and the party, but, higher risk does mean higher rewards...

Age of Rebellion - The second book released, and the one I have the least amount of knowledge on, Age of Rebellion focuses mostly on the Rebel Alliance and it's war against the Empire (shocking, I know), and is definitely the most military focused book. It introduces the Duty mechanic, which represents how you have accomplished towards the Rebellion, such as battle victories, space combat, or even just recruitment. The more Duty you earn, the more you can trade in to get weapons or even starships.

Force and Destiny - The most recently released book, Force and Destiny focuses on Force users and how they live in the Empire, because even though the Jedi are dead and gone, that doesn't mean Force users are gone too. It introduces the Morality mechanic, which, I'm sure you can guess, tracks how much of a good guy (the Light Side) or asshole (the Dark Side) you are, with each side giving it's own set of advantages and weaknesses.

So, you may be wondering to yourself, Clock, you disgusting troglodyte, why are you telling me all this? Well, because I want to run a campaign in this game, though probably not for whoever asked that question, because it was very hurtful. I want to hear what setting interests you guys the most, and after that, we can run the beginners game for that setting, and go from there. I'm not that sure how much interest is there for something like this, but I'd preferably would want to go no more than 6 players.

If you have any questions about this, feel free to ask in here PM on Discord.

I voted Force and Destiny but I'd be interested in either that one or Edge of the Empire. The Rebel one doesn't quite grab my attention as much tho.

Personally, as someone who grew up with IV-VI and even has the imperial insignia on the hood of his car, I went with Age of Rebellion.

I can't believe you tried to sneak this thread through so I wouldn't see it, you coward.

Edge of the Empire.

The seedy underworld of Star Wars was always one of the most interesting parts of the universe to me. Love it to death.
