Places of Power

Nexus of Power Is Now Available for the Star Wars®: Force and Destiny™ Roleplaying Game

"There's something not right here. I feel cold, death."
     –Luke Skywalker

The galaxy is consumed by a struggle between light and darkness. The Jedi, ancient protectors and peacekeepers, have been destroyed, wiped out by the dreaded Sith. However, although the Jedi may be gone, their legacy endures. On planets across the galaxy, ancient temples and strange realms remain hidden from prying eyes. Their secrets await those brave enough to rediscover these vergences of the Force…

Explore the secrets of these places of power with Nexus of Power, now available for the Star Wars®: Force and Destiny™ roleplaying game!

A 144-page hardbound rules supplement with a wealth of useful information about a variety of worlds and vergences that are strong with the Force, Nexus of Power offers all manner of possible directions for your Force and Destiny campaign. Will you travel to these worlds in search of the information contained within their ancient, abandoned temples? Will you risk an encounter with Imperial forces in order to retrieve a kyber crystal from the caverns of Ilum? Will you be changed by a vision you receive during an encounter in Mortis? Will you struggle with the lure of the dark side as you explore the powerful vergence on Ossus?

The locations, player options, and modular encounters introduced in Nexus of Power provide myriad hooks for your Force and Destiny campaign, as well as for any campaign in Edge of the Empire or Age of Rebellion that also has strong connections to the Force or Jedi relics.

Resurrecting the Jedi

Fear and suffering reign across the worlds of the Galactic Empire. All hope seems lost. The Emperor’s sinister schemes and agents have all but eradicated the Jedi. Yet, despite the Empire’s thorough and systematic attempt to erase the Jedi Order from history, the Force works to restore balance.

As a few Force-sensitive individuals seek greater understanding of the power that flows through them, their journeys may lead them to new worlds and locations—vergences that are strong with the Force, where they may encounter visions, relics, and knowledge of the fallen Jedi Order…

While it is these locations that take top billing in Nexus of Power, you'll also find plenty of new weapons, gear, relics, and talismans of interest to characters looking to resurrect the Jedi legacy. Your efforts to get your hands on some of these items can provide your Force and Destiny campaign with new direction and new challenges. You'll be able to explore new worlds, and you stand a good chance of finding new adversaries among the native beasts. But in a Force-themed campaign, your challenges are often deeper and subtler than the adversaries that you might encounter, and Nexus of Power addresses the ways the different vergences might challenge you to master your emotions—lest you start sliding toward the dark side.

Meanwhile, those smugglers, scoundrels, and fortune seekers racing through the galaxy in an Edge of the Empire campaign may embark upon a quest to recover some of the priceless relics presented in Nexus of Power. From the rarest of lightsabers and ancient tomes to the mystical Bardottan Sphere, the relics from Nexus of Power are all worth a small fortune, and that fortune could be yours!

Or those items could be put to use for the Rebel cause in an Age of Rebellion campaign, especially if your Rebel band needs to understand the dark side Force users that have begun to pursue them.

In any case, the items in Nexus of Power, as well as the understanding of the Force your characters may gain by visiting its worlds and vergences, can propel you further along any journey in which you hope to learn about or restore the Jedi Order. With some persistence and some luck, your adventures on these worlds may even help to bring balance to the Force.
