Your thoughts on the prequel movies aside, you have to admit that there's a lot of rich meat that a Star Wars fan can really get into in terms of an RPG campaign. And that's just where Fantasy Flight's taking you with their Rise of the Separatists book for the Star Wars RPG. In this preview, we get a look at how GMs can introduce players to this era.
From the post:
The story of the Clone Wars is at once an epic tale of grand battles and sweeping political gamesmanship, as well as a deeply personal saga, featuring stories of courage and loyalty, temptation and redemption. Will the player characters pursue their duty at any cost, or will they question their orders and seek their own destiny?
Rise of the Separatists—coming very soon to a game store near you—aids players and Game Masters alike in exploring the tones and themes of this period of galactic strife, with new mechanics and narrative frameworks to bring to your Star Wars Roleplaying campaigns.
