It Is Your Destiny

Announcing the STAR WARS (R): Force and Destiny (TM) Beginner Game

“I am a Jedi, like my father before me.”     –Luke Skywalker

Follow your destiny with the Star Wars®: Force and Destiny™ Beginner Game, the perfect entry into the Star Wars: Force and Destiny roleplaying experience for players of all skill levels!

With its complete, learn-as-you-go adventure, players can open the box, ignite their lightsabers, and explore their destinies as Force users in the Star Wars galaxy. 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, moral conflict, and more, Mountaintop Rescue, the included adventure leads you through the fundamentals of Force and Destiny even as you participate in its action-packed narrative.

High up the snow-clad slopes of Mount Tellec on the Outer Rim planet Spintir, you and your allies must travel to an ancient temple and rescue the humble scholar Hethan Romund, one of the few individuals still willing to share any knowledge of the fallen Jedi Order. 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: Force and Destiny Beginner Game, you’ll choose one of four pre-generated characters and jump right into the game. Will you play as a human trained in the arts of defense, a mysterious Zabrak mystic, an agile Togruta seeker, or a lightsaber-wielding Kel Dor able to move objects with the power of the Force? 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 explaining that character’s connection with Hethan Romund, the Force, and the other heroes. Additionally, quick reference guides cover the basics of the game’s core mechanics, as well as plenty of options for advancing your character during Mountaintop Rescue and into adventures beyond.

Build the Story with Unique Custom Dice

The Force and Destiny 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: Force and Destiny Beginner Game is scheduled to arrive at retailers in the second quarter of 2015. Visit our Star Wars: Force and Destiny Beginner Game description page to learn more. Then, gather your friends, clear your mind, and head into the mountains of Spintir. May the Force be with you!
