|Star Wars: Age of Rebellion | Published 18 July 2014|
“Count me in.”
The Rebel Alliance needs all the heroes it can get. Will you be one of them?
This September 13th is Rebellion Day, and it’s your opportunity to celebrate Star Wars roleplaying by participating in the dramatic, introductory Star Wars®: Age of Rebellion™ adventure, Rescue at Glare Peak.
Designed for two to five players (one of whom assumes the role of Game Master), Rescue at Glare Peak challenges you and your friends to complete a daring rescue mission while the fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance.
What Is Rebellion Day?
Taking place worldwide on September 13th, FFG’s Rebellion Day is a special event designed to build upon the burgeoning excitement and community for the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Roleplaying Game.
Only a limited number of kits are available, so retailers should apply today. This global event will provide players an engaging way to explore the Age of Rebellion Roleplaying Game, even as they strike a blow for galactic freedom!
The highlight of Rebellion Day is Rescue at Glare Peak, a special introductory Age of Rebellion adventure designed specifically for the event.
On Rebellion Day, you and your friends will assume the roles of heroic Rebel agents who must work together to rescue a pair of Rebel pilots who have crash-landed on the planet Trivar II.
Four different pre-generated characters introduce several of the many careers, specializations, skills, and talents of Age of Rebellion. Choose from an Ithorian Engineer, a Bothan Spy, a Human Commander, and a Duros Soldier. You’ll need to make use of the tricks, talents, and technology these characters possess in order to succeed at your mission.
The Rebellion Day Game Kit
The Rebellion Day Game Kit comes with everything retailers need to run this unique Star Wars adventure:
What Is Star Wars: Age of Rebellion?
Age of Rebellion is the second of three epic, fully cross-compatible Star Wars roleplaying systems by Fantasy Flight Games. It thrusts players directly into the ongoing Galactic Civil War between the evil Empire and the rag-tag Rebel Alliance. Woefully outnumbered and outgunned by the Empire and its vast military might, player characters may undertake any of a wide variety of missions. They may perform reconnaissance, engage in guerrilla warfare, or recruit citizens from across the galaxy.
At the core of FFG’s Star Wars roleplaying mechanics are its custom dice. Designed to enhance a heavily narrative roleplaying system, these dice combine symbols for success and failure with symbols for “threat” and “advantage.” As a result, players may succeed at their actions but still earn “threat,” or fail but still “advantages.” These results encourage stunning plot twists, and every roll of the dice encourages additional storytelling.
How Do You Get Involved?
All applications are due by Wednesday, August 6th at 23:59 CST, though we strongly encourage interested retailers to apply as soon as possible. Our number of Rebellion Day Game Kits are limited.
If you are approved to host a Rebellion Day event, we will send instructions for ordering your event kit. We’ll post a list of participating retailers in a few weeks.
