Index of /public/Books/bellesetokmeo.gq Wars RPG - FF/Edge of the Empire/ [ BTA04] Crates of Krayts - Core bellesetokmeo.gq M. Bookmark. This is a community for friendly discussion about FFG's Star Wars RPG. This system began with the release of the beta Edge of the Empire. Play this free download adventure which is a follow-up to the Edge of the Empire Beginner Box Set. Created by Fantasy Flight Games.
The Rise of the Separatists Era sourcebook is set during the Clone Wars era at the beginning of the Palapatine regime. The Dawn of Rebellion Era sourcebook is set during the waning of the Republic and the ascendance of the Empire. It deals with the events of Rogue One , in which the Rebellion is divided into factions and is opposing the Empire just as it is consolidating its power. The Force Awakens , with the adventure provided taking place just before the events of the movie. Attribute levels range from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 6.
Each character race has different base Attribute levels, though additional levels in each attribute can be gained during or after character creation, at the cost the value of the next level times Strain is a derived attribute based on a Racial minimum plus the character's Willpower that determines how much physical, mental or emotional stress a character can take before collapsing.
Wound Points are a derived attribute based on a Racial minimum plus the character's Brawn that determines how much physical damage a character can take before passing out or slipping into a coma.
After determining attributes, the player designs their character using a Racial Template. Each race has different racial attribute minimums and maximums. Some races also have a free level in a racial skill usually up to a maximum of Level 2 at creation or have a racial talent. As an example, humans have a racial template that has a score of 2 in all Attributes and can have any two different skills of the player's choice at the start of play.
The player then picks a Career , which grants career skills. Then they pick a Specialization which grants more career skills, and a Specialization Tree , which grants specialization-based Talents.
Career Skills are granted their first level free during initial character creation. They also cost less than regular Skills when downloading additional levels in them. The character's career grants four Career Skills from the Career template skill list and their career specialization grants two more career Skills from the Specialization template skill list.
For instance, an Engineer-Mechanic and Technician-Mechanic have the same Specialization Tree but have different specialization template career skills to choose from to depict their different character concepts. Characters cannot download a new Career but may download additional Specializations - whether they are under their Career or not.
However, if a character wishes to download another specialization, it costs less for one under their chosen Career than for one under another Career. For example, the Engineer Career in the core Age of Rebellion book narrows down to the Mechanic, Saboteur, and Scientist specializations. An Engineer - Mechanic who wants to add the Engineer's Scientist specialization would pay less than if they wanted to add the Ace's Pilot specialization.
The character can even take a Specialization from one of the other games like the Edge of the Empire Technician's Slicer or Bounty Hunter's Martial Artist specializations. The game's rules assume that all characters have all the listed skills at "zero level" if they do not have a level in it.
The character's default skill level is equal to the skill's governing Attribute score. downloading a level in a skill makes the character an expert in it.
Skills have a maximum level of 5. Skill levels can be downloadd for five points times the level for Career skills, with the additional cost of five additional points for non-Career skills. Regular Skill rolls substitute a yellow sided Proficiency die for a green Ability die per Skill level. For instance, a character with a level of 4 in computers skill and a level of 5 in their Intellect attribute would roll four Proficiency dice and one Ability die rather than five Ability dice.
It can also add green Ability dice if the character's skill level is higher than their attribute level. Let's say that in the example above the character instead had a level of 5 in computers skill and a level of 4 in their Intellect attribute. They would still roll four Proficiency dice and one Ability die rather than five Proficiency dice until the character's Intellect is raised to 5.
Blue 6-sided Boost Dice are added for advantageous events or if another character is helping the player character with the attempt. Skill rolls are opposed by rolling a pool of purple 8-sided Difficulty Dice. Depending on the complexity of the task the character is attempting it could range from one die for an Easy complexity task picking a keyhole lock to five dice for a Formidable complexity task cracking a complex vault door lock without knowing the schematics.
Black 6-sided Setback Dice are added for disadventageous events or if another NPC is helping the antagonist NPC to hinder the player character's attempt.
Talents are advantages that add flavor to a character and either grant bonuses, benefit allies, remove penalties during play, or penalize adversaries.
They cost experience points to download, and must be unlocked in the order they appear on a diagram called a "Specialization Tree" similar to those found in video games such as Star Wars: The Old Republic. The further down the diagram, the more expensive and powerful the Talents become. This means that sometimes a player has to download Talents that they do not want or require in order to get to desired talents further down the same branch.
Fantasy Flight Games
However, it avoids having the character cherry-pick the more powerful talents and leaving the rest. The player can only download a talent on the tree once but can download it again if it appears elsewhere on the diagram.
Each Career Specialization has its own Specialization Tree. When the tree is all filled out, the character cannot download any more talents from it. If the player wishes to obtain more Talents for their character, then they must select a new Career Specialization and begin filling out that Specialization Tree.
Talents are split into two groups. Some talents have levels and can be downloadd more than once. The talent's levels stack, even if they are bought for different amounts of experience points. Disadvantages can be taken during character creation to offset point costs. Edge of the Empire has Obligations , something the character is forced or compelled to do. Age of Rebellion has Duties , something the character wants to do.
The number of Player Characters in the group set the base disadvantage number. The smaller the group, the larger the Disadvantage level that each player must bear. The Game Master rolls percentile dice at the beginning of play to see which character's disadvantage will be used during the session.
The character can pay off the disadvantage with experience points in gameplay. Force and Destiny has Morality , which governs how close the Force-using character is to slipping over to the Dark Side. Unlike the other two games, Morality is governed by a character's actions during gameplay.
Conflict is generated whenever they choose to perform a morally questionable action or choose to use the Dark Side of the Force in order to power their abilities. Morality cannot be 'bought' with XP, instead a player wanting to change their alignment must actually role-play a more aggressive character to turn Dark, or perform acts of compassion to become a paragon of the Light.
Motivation is the character's guiding principle a Belief, Personal Connection, or Quest.
If the player uses the character's Motivation during gameplay, they get an experience point bonus. Not amazing or wonderful, just… Okay.
And the included adventure is a certainly a great introduction to the rules and established world of black market dealers and smugglers on the run. The strong emphasis on roleplay over miniature-based combat was also refreshing. So what exactly held it back from completely bowling me over?
[Star Wars: Edge of the Empire] Playing with normal dice?
The dice. Those damn, silly dice. Instead, it just caused a headache for my players as they attempted to decipher what they just rolled. I felt confident that over time, players would come to intrinsically understand the dice, allowing our roleplaying romps within the Star Wars universe to flourish. Over the next several months, I took every opportunity I could to run Edge of the Empire for different folks, utilizing a combination of the Beginner Box and Core Rulebook Beta rules.
I wanted to see if other folks would have an easier time grasping the dice iconography over my initial group; was it just a fluke, or was my eager plunge into Star Wars roleplaying a bit misguided?
Each game provided the same outcome — players had fun with the system, but the dice was a roadblock from fully engaging with the game. With the release of the full Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook in August , I had no doubts about how awful the dice system was. However, acting as Game Master over multiple sessions, I found that I was having a little difficulty in translating the dice symbols.
Perhaps, I thought, the answer was in repeated sessions with the same group? And thus, my first Star Wars roleplaying campaign was born. Each of my players were able to painlessly develop concepts and flesh them out using their allotted XP and credits. We had a doctor, a smart-ass droid, a disenfranchised smuggler, a former soldier… Where were the Jedi? What about members of the Rebel Alliance?Written by Fandom Comics.
