Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Beginner Game | Published 17 January 2014

The Star Wars®: Age of Rebellion™ Beginner Game is the perfect entry into the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion roleplaying experience for players of all skill levels.

With its complete, learn-as-you-go adventure, players can open the box and immediately dive into their roles as members of the Rebel Alliance, desperately fighting against the superior might of the galactic Empire. Pre-generated character folios keep the rules right at your fingertips, while custom dice and an exciting narrative gameplay system advance your story with every roll.

Learn as You Play

The abridged ruleset, which is incorporated into the included adventure, allows you to learn as you play throughout your adventure. With plenty of opportunities for combat, social encounters, clever thinking, and more, Takeover at Whisper Base, the included adventure teaches the fundamentals of Age of Rebellion as part of its narrative.

Thrusting players directly into the action, Takeover at Whisper Base begins as the player characters try to infiltrate the heavily guarded Whisper Base, and the action quickly ratchets up from there. All the while, the game’s mechanics are introduced incrementally as part of the exciting narrative.

Character Folios Get You Into the Game

In the Star Wars®: Age of Rebellion™ Beginner Game, you’ll choose one of four pre-generated characters and jump right into the game. Will you play as a human ace pilot, a Mon Calamari engineer, a human soldier, or a Duros spy? The included character folios keep all the information you need to assume the role of your character at your fingertips.

Each eight-page folio includes a background that explains that character’s connection with the Rebel Alliance and the other heroes, along with quick reference guides for the game’s core mechanics, and plenty of options for advancing your character during Takeover at Whisper Base and taking it into adventures beyond.

Build the Story with Unique Custom Dice

The Age of Rebellion Beginner Game features a unique custom dice mechanic that 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.

In 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.

The Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Beginner Game will arrive at retailers in the second quarter of 2014. Visit our Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Beginner Game description page to learn more. Then, gather your friends; the Rebel Alliance needs your help to stand against the evil Empire!
