Pre-made adventures are great for GMs with a time crunch. I’m currently using one for a game I’m running. They give the players a lot of action and adventure and the GM can still play around with it as they please. For those playing the Star Wars RPG from Fantasy Flight Games, a new adven...

As with just about every new Star Wars RPG book, there’s lots of new options for players to create more unique and defined characters, letting them play just exactly what they want to. In Cyphers and Masks, a book all about spying and subterfuge, there’s a new specialization (the Courier)...

I wish I could be a sleeper agent. Just nap all day, snuggling up with your teddyrancor, under your X-Wing sheets. *gets handed a note* Oh… that’s not what a sleeper agent does at all. Apparently they’re deep-cover operatives that infiltrate a location and basically live a double-li...

With the decidedly underhanded way that the Emperor took control of the Galactic Senate and put himself in control, it was pretty much inevitable that there would be those opposed to his rule. Thus began the Galactic Civil War, with the Rebellion steadily growing to face against the Imperial Forces. ...

The Force is a very influential … umm… force in the Universe. … Wait, I feel like we’ve been over this. Well, it seems as though The Force is on the docket for the next set of Star Wars releases from Fantasy Flight. In this case, it’s the Star Wars RPG. They’re get...

Information is everything. Being informed of the situation at hand, especially in something as chaotic as a warzone can mean the difference between victory and defeat. And when an enemy is captured, getting accurate information from them is a good skill to have. Such is what you’ll be doing as ...

When you’re playing an RPG, you want the rules to be present, but not get in the way of the game. And with all the options that a player’s character can have, it can be really easy to forget how something works, or forget you have some special bonus at all. Thankfully, there’s resou...

Emperor Palpatine seized control during a time of turmoil. He manipulated events so he could claim himself as undisputed leader. This left a bad taste in a lot of people’s mouths, as they were used to the freedom granted by the Republic. As such, a rebellion was quickly formed to fight against ...

In any fantasy RPG, someone’s almost always going to pick the rogue to play. You know, they want to be sneaky, staying in the shadows, picking locks, stealing pants off of unwitting bar patrons, backstabbing with a ballista… That kind of thing. Players that like that kind of character can...

Droids are just an everyday part of life in the Star Wars universe. They’re everywhere, but it takes a large support staff to keep them going. Just like organic creatures need doctors, the droids need repairmen and repairwomen and repairsmizmars to keep them going. In Fully Operational, the new...

A good friend of mine used to be a combat engineer. That is to say that he blew up bridges for a living for a while. In the Star Wars universe, the Rebellion especially needs members who are force-equalizers like that, willing to go and take out the enemy’s ability to fight and get around. [&he...

I love to take things apart and put them back together (or, try to put them back together, anyway). There are just some people who love to tinker with gadgets and try and come up with something better, or aren’t willing to just throw things out and would rather fix them. For those that want [&h...

The Star Wars galaxy is filled with all manner of alien races. So why just stick with a couple of them for your games of the Star Wars RPG from Fantasy Flight? That’s no fun at all. Thankfully, they’re always coming out with more playable rules for different races in their books. Disciple...

One of the main things that separates science fiction from other forms of fiction is technology. Starships. High-tech gadgetry. Laser weapons. Stuff like that. Well, Star Wars is certainly science fiction as it’s full of all sorts of technology. And if you want to be the one that can build and ...

When it comes to RPGs, I don’t normally make face-beaters. You know, the big fighter/barbarian that does a bajillion damage with each swing. I’m more likely to play the Bard or something like that. The kind of character that’ll win a battle without making more than diplomacy checks....

There’s a lot of not-so-great people in the Star Wars universe, and someone has to bring them to justice. The various police forces can’t always keep up, so it’s up to the bounty hunters in order to get the job done. And if they pick up some money on the side by doing jobs for [&hel...

Ever since we all first saw Darth Maul light up the second half of his double-bladed lightsaber, we’ve all been enthralled with it. It has come to be known simply as a symbol for “badass.” Well, in Ghosts of Dathomir, a new adventure coming for the Star Wars RPG from Fantasy Flight ...

As we’ve seen, considering what happened to Han Solo, it’s best to not get on the bad side of a powerful Hutt… or the Empire… and especially don’t get on the bad side of both. However, when a force statue has gone missing, and everyone seems to be searching for it, you j...

While you may not think that you need their kind of scum, Bounty Hunters are a rather iconic part of the Star Wars universe. Though they had relatively little screen time, people just went nuts over them, particularly the fan-favorite Boba Fett. Well, for those that want to become bounty hunters, the...

Little trinkets. It seems as though a lot of people will go to a lot of trouble to acquire certain little trinkets. I mean, the odd, little statue called Tragic Hope can’t be that important of an item, can it? Apparently, several very important individuals think it is. You’ve got a Hutt c...

On a planet controlled by the Empire, many civil matters go by not taken care of. Or, on the other end of the spectrum, everyone involved just gets hauled in to jail. Or there’s the crime-run worlds. What sort of justice can one honestly expect there? Well, there are those that feel the call to...

Star Wars is all about conflict. It’s sort of, y’know, right there in the name. It’s not Star Peaceful Talks Next To A Fireplace, after all. Nearly countless soldiers fought for the Rebel side, looking to free the galaxy from the tyranny of the Empire. If you’d like to be one ...
