Gather your friends and prepare for adventure in the Star Wars galaxy! Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the upcoming release of the Star Wars®: Edge of the Empire™ Beginner Game, the perfect starting point for roleplaying adventures in the Star Wars galaxy.
The Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Beginner Game features a complete, learn-as-you-go adventure. Pre-generated character folios keep rules right at the your fingertips, while custom dice and an exciting narrative gameplay system make every roll into a story. The rules provide hours of entertainment as you tell your own tales of a galaxy far, far away!
Learn the Mechanics as you Play
The abridged and simplified ruleset, which is incorporated into the included adventure, lets you learn as you play; you and your team will navigate the suns-blasted streets of a small Tatooine town in hopes of securing your own spaceship. With plenty of opportunities for combat, social encounters, and more, the included adventure teaches the fundamentals of Edge of the Empire as part of its narrative.
Thrusting players directly into the action, Escape from Mos Shuuta begins with a desperate escape from ruthless thugs, and ratchets up the action from there. All the while, pertinent mechanics are introduced incrementally as part of the exciting narrative.
Character Folios Include Everything You Need to Know
The Star Wars®: Edge of the Empire™ Beginner Game lets you choose one of four pre-generated characters and jump right into the game. Will you be a Wookiee mercenary or a human smuggler? A Droid colonist or a Twi’lek bounty hunter? The choice is yours, and the convenient character folios present all the information you’ll need.
Each eight-page folio includes a background explaining that character’s connection with Teemo the Hutt (the adventure’s villain) and the other heroes, quick reference guides for the game’s core mechanics, and plenty of options for advancement during Escape from Mos Shuuta and into adventures beyond.
Build the Story with Unique Custom Dice
The unique custom dice mechanic provides a wealth of narrative options. Symbols for success, failure, and complications are all printed directly on the dice! Even a successful roll can place you under threat, and even a failure can create some advantage.
Through this system, which takes all narrative conditions into account, players and Game Masters quickly build a dice pool for each task, then they roll and let the dice help guide the growth of the story.
