Fantasy Flight Posts New Preview From Allies & Adversaries Book for Star Wars RPG

Though it seems like it revolves around like maybe a half-dozen people, the galaxy in Star Wars is actually filled with all manner of beings. Some will help you in your jouney. Others will be against you. But coming up with all their stats on the fly can be difficult. Thankfully, Fantasy Flight's here with Allies and Adversaries, a new book of NPCs for your games. Check out a little of what will be inside.

Fantasy Flight Previews Hero Progression in Journeys in Middle-earth

Characters at the start of the story will (hopefully) have changed by the end of the story. They go through a whole arc, growing as they learn more about themselves and the world around them. The characters in the Lord of the Rings certainly do. And that's transferred to Journeys in Middle-earth, the upcoming board game from Fantasy Flight. In this preview, we get a look at how that will work within the game.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Spark of Hope Expansion for Star Wars: Destiny

A new set of cards for Star Wars: Destiny has been announced. It's called Spark of Hope, and while I'm sure people will be excited about many of the new cards and dice that will be coming, all I can see is that there's Grand Admiral Thrawn. And, like so many, I'm a huge Thrawn fanboy. So that's really what I'm singly focused and excited about.

Hunt for the Emper Crown DLC Adventure Announced for Journeys in Middle-earth

Many of Fantasy Flight's games are accentuated with an app that enhances your gaming experience.

Fantasy Flight Previews Combat in Journeys in Middle-earth

While Middle-earth has places like the Shire or Rivendell that are nice places to kick up your feet and relax, there's also plenty of places where you need to make sure you have your sword, axe, or bow ready to defend yourself.

Call to Adventure Background Compendium Up On Kickstarter

It's rarely that a hero is born a day before they head out to adventure. They did something for a while before the call to roam the land and fight its evils took hold. But what, exactly, did they do? What sort of skills did they learn along the way? That's what the Backgrounds are for in Dungeons & Dragons. But even with the couple books that have expanded backgrounds, a player might not really find one that works for the character they're trying to create. That's where the Call to Adventure book comes in. It's up on Kickstarter now and it is simply filled with new bakgrounds.

Two New Star Wars: Destiny Starter Decks Available From Fantasy Flight

A pair of new starter decks area available for Star Wars: Destiny. They head back to the Prequel era of the Star Wars Saga, as players can either pick up the mantle of General Kenobi or General Grievious. Me? I'd go for the coughing robot, but that's just my take on the situation.

Fantasy Flight Previews TX-225 GAVw Occupier Combat Assault Tank For Star Wars: Legion

I think it's time to blow this scene. Get everybody and their stuff together. Ok, 3, 2, 1, let's jam.

Whoops, sorry. Wrong Tank. This is the TX-225 GAVw Occupier Combat Assault Tank from Star Wars, specifically about how it's coming to Star Wars: Legion. There weren't a lot of armored vehicles in the original trilogy (relatively speaking, for a war movie), but a lot more have showed up since then. Soon, you'll be able to add it to your Imperial forces. Let's take a look at how it works.

Fantasy Flight Announces New Campaign Expansion For Star Wars: Armada

Along with the mass of Star Wars: Legion announcements from this morning, that's not the only Star Wars game getting something new soon. While many of you were disappointed with the news that the Super Star Destroyer was going to be delayed, Fantasy Flight hopes that announcing a new Campaign Expansion will help pep you up some.

Clone Wars Set Announced, New Sets Previewed, New Upgrades Announced, New Releases Out for Star Wars: Legion

I swear, Fantasy Flight went full ham on Star Wars: Legion announcements yesterday. Arguaby the biggest of these is the announcement that they're going to a new era in the Star Wars saga with the coming Clone Wars sets. They're getting a starter set, and they've posted up a couple previews of expansion packs as well. Along with that, Fantasy Flight has announced an Upgrade Card deck so you can further customize your forces.

Fantasy Flight Announces Super Star Destroyer Delays

Making big things takes a long time.  The Brooklyn Bridge or Sears Tower weren't built in a day. So, when you're creating the biggest starship ever to come out for Star Wars: Armada, it's going to take time. Unfortunately, with time can potentially come delays, so it takes more time. While I certainly wanted to pick up one of these ships ASAP, I'm going to have to wait until Q3 before I can get my hands on a Super Star Destroyer.

Fantasy Flight Preview Imperial Death Troopers For Star Wars: Legion

One of the cool things about Prequel movies is that you can introduce a cool new concept, or unit, or character that's really cool... and then suddenly disappears forever from everything because they can't just go back and work them into the later movies that came out earlier... Such is the fate of the Imperial Death Troopers. But while we won't be seeing them show up in A New Hope anytime soon, you can have them on your Star Wars: Legion tabletops relatively soon.

Fantasy Flight Previews Delta-7 Aethersprite For X-Wing

I remember when this was just known as "the Jedi Starfighter." But, in reality (or... fictionality?), it's called the Delta-7 Aethersprite. And you'll soon be able to add it to your X-Wing squadrons. In this preview, we get a look at just how it works, along with some of the different Jedi pilots for it.

He'll soon be making his way to Star Wars; Legion tabletops, and you can get a look at just how he'll work in this preview.

Fantasy Flight Posts New Preview From Star Wars: Destiny: Convergence

In war, you're going to have soldiers and those that lead them. That's just sort of how that thing works. And the Star Wars saga is filled with wars (it's right there in the title. You were expecting My Dinner With Andre?). In the upcoming Star Wars: Destiny set, Convergence, players will have new soldiers and commanders they can modify their decks with. Let's take a look at some of them.
