Design. Build. Repair. Destroy. The struggle against the Empire isn’t only for those who carry the biggest blasters or fly the fastest starfighters. No war can be carried on without the tools to wage it, and Engineers serve the Rebellion and their comrades by designing, building, and maintaining all the equipment necessary to end the Empire’s reign of terror in the galaxy. Weapons, droids, vehicles, and gear of all varieties are more than just plasteel and bolts; they represent the will of the free people of the galaxy made corporeal in defiance of the Emperor.

Fully Operational is a 96-page sourcebook for Engineers in the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Roleplaying Game. Featuring three new specialization talent trees and new races to populate your campaigns, Fully Operational is an essential addition to your collection. It includes detailed rules for vehicle and starship construction as well as sample campaigns that emphasize the role Engineers play in the Galactic Civil War beyond being simple background support. A livery of new ships and vehicles also awaits you, ready to be included in your Age of Rebellion campaign.

1st QUARTER 2018

STAR WARS: AGE OF REBELLION – CYPHERS AND MASKS

A Sourcebook for Spies

hardcover

publisher info:

hardcover (96 pages)

Fantasy Flight Games

FFG catalog number: SWA47

$ 29.95

solicitation copy:

Not every victory is achieved at the end of a blaster barrel or by the signing of a treaty. Spies do the majority of the work, finding out where the soldiers need to deploy and what would make the enemy wish to surrender. By engaging in the most unconventional of warfare, spies save lives—and take them—in secret. Often uncelebrated, their vital work is necessary if there is to be any hope of toppling the Empire.

Cyphers and Masks is a sourcebook for the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Roleplaying Game that greatly expands the options and opportunities for the Spy career. At 96 full-color pages, Cyphers and Masks includes new specializations and species perfect for starting a new campaign or integrating into existing ones. New vehicles, equipment, and droids designed to be assets and adversaries to characters engaging in clandestine operations are included with new rules for utilizing the skills most often associated with Spies and their tradecraft. Gamemasters are also given additional tools and guidance for building stories for Spy characters with an emphasis on Intelligence and Counterintelligence operations.

from the announcement:

Far from the battlefields of Hoth and the skies of Yavin, the Rebellion is waging a secret war. While it is not completely free of bloodshed, this war is fought primarily with information, deception, and lies. The spies of the Rebellion infiltrate every facet of Imperial life, working alone or in teams to accomplish feats a traditional soldier could never hope to perform. An imposter at court can sow discord among a feudal planet’s noble houses. A disguised assassin can silence a critical Imperial mouthpiece. An overheard conversation can warn of danger and save the lives of thousands of Rebels. A single data drive can reveal the secret to bringing the Emperor’s greatest achievement to ruin.

STAR WARS: THE ROLEPLAYING GAME -30th ANNIVERSARY EDITION

reprinted from the West End Games 1987 originals

boxed hardcovers

 

publisher info:

boxed hardcovers

Fantasy Flight Games

FFG catalog number: SWW01

ISBN 978-1-63344-323-5

$ 59.95

solicitation copy:

Few books or games have had as enduring an impact upon the Star Wars galaxy and its fans as Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game. Originally published by West End Games in 1987, it arrived at a time when the future of the Star Wars galaxy was uncertain, and it captivated a whole generation of gamers with rules and guidelines that made it easy to design and enjoy adventures truly worthy of the Star Wars universe and its ongoing space opera.

Our Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game 30th Anniversary Edition is a faithful, limited edition recreation of both Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game and The Star Wars Sourcebook, both printed with higher quality than the originals and packaged in a stylized slipcase.

from the announcement:

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of the Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game 30th Anniversary Edition!

First published in 1987 by West End Games, Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game arrived at a time when the future of the Star Wars galaxy was uncertain. The original trilogy had been completed. There were no plans for additional films. It was as if a hundred million voices had cheered at the Rebellion’s triumph and then suddenly went silent…

But the Star Wars galaxy is too vibrant, too dynamic, and too full of adventure to simply fade away. Even after the Jedi had returned, the Empire had been toppled, and the original trilogy had been completed, the galaxy begged for further exploration.

This was where Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game came in. With its award-winning ruleset, its focus on operatic space adventures, and the many starships, vehicles, droids, creatures, and aliens detailed in its sourcebook, West End Games didn’t just allow Star Wars fans to continue pursuing the ways of the Force, it left an enduring impression upon the galaxy itself.

Now, forty years after the debut of A New Hope and thirty years after its first printing, Star Wars: The Roleplaying Gamemakes its return as a limited edition set of two lovingly recreated, hardcover books, Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game and The Star Wars Sourcebook!

This critical tie between Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game and our current apprecation of everything Star Wars is brought to life in the foreword Pablo Hidalgo wrote for the 30th Anniversary Edition, and it’s one of the few changes between this edition and the original. You’ll also find a few updated photos, pieces of concept art, and advertisements, but they’re all carefully designed to match the book’s original style, including its alternating use of black-and-white and full color.

The galaxy is a dangerous place. The teachings and traditions of the Jedi have been lost to treachery and murder.

New starships, vehicles, droids, weapons, and other equipment will help expand your campaign’s richness and variety, whether it exclusively uses Force and Destiny or any of the other Star Wars Roleplaying Game line. Knights of Fate also features support and guidance for reinforcing the themes and roles of Warriors in the narrative, from suggestions on how they could approach different challenges to the ways in which other character Careers might interact with a Warrior’s capabilities and limitations.

$ 29.95

from the announcement:

The dissolution of the Jedi Order has reopened alternative paths of communing with the Force; no longer bound by strict rules and regulations, the Mystic interacts with the Force in ways that might seem foreign to the Jedi of old.

Game Masters looking to tie their campaign to the Force will find adventure hooks and tips for integrating Mystic characters into their campaign.
