The prequels brought a whole host of new species to the Star Wars universe. In the new Rise of the Separatists book coming for the Star Wars RPG, Fantasy Flight will be letting you play them in your games. Along with that, there's new Careers you can take on, as well as new Specializations. In this preview, we get a look at what you can expect.
From the post:
Conflict wracks the galaxy!
With the secession of the Confederation of Independent Systems and the deadly confrontation at Geonosis, war has become inevitable. The Galactic Republic has deployed the massive Grand Army of the Republic alongside Jedi Generals to quell further uprising and bring rebellious systems back to the fold. Among the Separatist worlds, politicians and warriors fight to preserve their right to self-determination and freedom from the corruption and malaise of the Republic Senate. Bounty hunters and criminal cartels play both sides off one another. When the fighting comes to a standstill, scavengers plunder the debris of once-proud star destroyers and scuttled starfighters. Heroes and villains rise and fall as the struggle escalates into what will become known as the Clone Wars.
In Rise of the Separatists, the newest sourcebook for Star Wars Roleplaying, you’ll be able to fully enter a new era of the Star Wars saga, whether you’re playing with Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, or Force and Destiny. In this supplement, you’ll be able to play as one of the Kaminoans or their creations, the clones. Alternatively, you can take part in the conflict as one of the industrious Geonosians or the scheming Umbarans. With four new species, two new full careers, and four new universal specializations, you can explore new playstyles and experience this iconic period of galactic history as never before.
Today, we’ll take a closer look at some of the character options coming soon to your tabletop!
