Fantasy Flight Games has announced the Q2 release of the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Core Rulebook (MSRP $59.95), a 464-page tome that provides everything that players and GMs need to begin their adventures in the Star Wars universe.
The launch of the Age of Rebellion Core Rulebook represents the kickoff for the second of three standalone, cross-compatible RPGs set in the Star Wars universe. It complements the previously announced “Beginner’s Game” (see "'Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Beginner Game'").
The Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Core Rulebook, which FFG beta-tested last year (see "'Star Wars: Age of Rebellion'"), utilizes a special "skill mechanic," in which the GM will have players roll pools of dice, both negative and positive, to determine whether an action succeeds or not. The positive dice reflect the characters innate abilities, talents, and resources, while the negative dice represent the forces that could disrupt the action. If the postiive role is higher, then the action succeeds.
Due in Q2
