Black Sabbath, Dead Kennedys, and System of a Down all asked why politicians don't go out there and actually fight on the front lines of the wars they start. In the Star Wars saga, that actually is often the case. In this preview of the upcoming Collapse of the Republic book for the Star Wars RPG, we get a look at the stats for some of the soliders and politicians that you can find in the game.
From the post:
While clones and droids make up the majority of the forces battling for the Republic and Separatists in the Clone Wars, these epic skirmishes engulf those from all walks of life. The Jedi have taken on the role of generals in the war, diving headfirst into conflicts across the galaxy.
Meanwhile, senators on both sides work tirelessly to bring the war to a close peacefully, and Separatist commanders fight for their beliefs with daring ploys and brilliant tactical decisions. But all of these soldiers and politicians have one thing in common: They are just pawns in a bigger game, manipulated by a puppet master using the Clone Wars to advance his own plans and agendas.
Join us today as we preview soldiers and politicians in Collapse of the Republic, an era sourcebook for Star Wars Roleplaying!
Collapse of the Republic adds new player and Game Master options for Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, and Force and Destiny, giving you the opportunity to set your campaigns of Star Wars Roleplaying during the twilight of the Republic.
