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-life, waiting for the signal from their command to go into action. Ok, then. I guess I should read through this preview of the Sleeper Agent Specialization in the upcoming Cyphers and Masks sourcebook for the Star Wars RPG that Fantasy Flight has posted.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Dawn of Rebellion Sourcebook for Star Wars RPG

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. It’s this initial founding of the Rebellion that this new sourcebook for the Star Wars RPG focuses on. It’s called Dawn of Rebellion.

Fantasy Flight Games Posts New For Cyphers and Masks Sourcebook for Star Wars RPG

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.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Dawn of Rebellion Sourcebook for Star Wars RPG

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 his control. It’s this time that is going to be covered in detail in the Dawn of Rebellion sourcebook that’s coming for the Star Wars RPG.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Cyphers and Masks Sourcebook for Star Wars RPG

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 sometimes feel that a sci-fi setting doesn’t always give them the same options. Well, Fantasy Flight is looking to help with that, as they’re coming out with the Cyphers and Masks sourcebook for the Star Wars RPG.

Fantasy Flight Previews New Specialization and Playable Race From Fully Operational

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 sourcebook coming for the Star Wars RPG, your character can go into the repair business. They can also be a Skakoan, if they want (it’s a new race for the game).

Fantasy Flight Games Posts New Fully Operational Star Wars RPG Preview

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. That’s where Sappers and such come in. And if you play the Star Wars RPG from Fantasy Flight, you can make your character into one of those with the Fully Operational sourcebook.

Fantasy Flight Games Posts New Preview From Fully Operational Star Wars Sourcebook

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 their Star Wars RPG character to do that type of thing, they’re in luck. The Fully Operational sourcebook is filled with ways your character can tinker and craft new objects. Fantasy Flight Games has a new preview of the inner workings of how that’ll work.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Disciples of Harmony Sourcebook for Star Wars RPG

While blasters and lightsabers are certainly at the forefront of many people’s minds when they think about what they want their Star Wars characters to specialize in, some players take a bit of a different approach.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Fully Operational Sourcebook for Star Wars RPG

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.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews New Consular Specializations For Star Wars RPG

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. So, were I to finally find a good Star Wars RPG group to join up with, I have a feeling that Disciples of Harmony would be a good book for me to pick up. In this preview, we get a look at new Consular Specializations that’ll be in it.

And if they pick up some money on the side by doing jobs for crime lords, well… you shouldn’t cross crime lords, either. But anyway, if you want to have more options for your bounty hunter characters in the Star Wars RPG, you can pick up No Disintegrations now.

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.

Fantasy Flight Games Posts New No Disintegrations Preview

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Toydarian Hutt Kajidics in Ghosts of Dathomir

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 just might end up making one or both of those groups mad. In this preview of Goths of Dathomir, Fantasy Flight Games takes a look at the Toydarian Hutt Kajidics that are on the planet, so you can at least go in with a bit of information.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Ghosts of Dathomir Adventure For The Star Wars RPG

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 crime lord (are there any other kinds of Hutt?), a force-sensitive bounty hunter, and even the Imperial army going after it. It must be worth something, and it’d be best if you and your other adventurers were the ones holding it. That’s just what you’ll be doing in Ghosts of Dathomir, a new adventure coming for the Star Wars RPG from Fantasy Flight Games.

Endless Vigil Sourcebook Now Available For Star Wars RPG

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.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces No Disintegrations Book For Star Wars RPG

Ah-ha! Got the drop on you with MY disintegrating pistol! And brother, when it disintegrates, it disintegrates!
*pulls trigger* *watches gun disintegrate*
Well, waddya know? It disintegrated.
Seriously, I know it’s one of the more-famous lines from Star Wars, but that’s all I can think of when I think of the word “disintegrations.” Anyway, if you want to go after a bounty, removing all the evidence with a disintegration beam might not be the best, but that sort of stuff is covered in detail in No Disintegrations, a new sourcebook coming for the Star Wars RPG from Fantasy Flight Games.
