First Session: Thursday -- July 25th, 2013 -- 7:00 PM
Approx. Length: 1-2 sessionsDescription:Star Wars: Edge of the Empire
is a standalone roleplaying game (RPG) published by Fantasy Flight who recently acquired the Star Wars rights. This is the adventure included in the Beginner Box set. Players will experience a complete, learn-as-you-go adventure; pre-generated character folios keep rules right at the your fingertips, while custom dice and an exciting narrative gameplay system make every roll into a story. The rules provide hours of entertainment as you tell your own tales of a galaxy far, far away. The time of this setting is right after the Battle of Yavin where the Rebel Alliance scored their first victory against the Empire by destroying the first Death Star. (Right at the end of the movie "A New Hope") The Jedi are all but non-existant, having been hunted to near extinction by Darth Vader.
The name of the introductory adventure in the Beginner Box is "Escape from Mos Shuuta. It comes with 4 pregenerated characters: Human Scoundrel, Wookie Hired-Gun, Twilek Bounty Hunter, and Droid Scientist. There are also 2 more available for download hereReference Sheet p 5 and 19

| Jul 26, 2013 11:08 AM || - Sam K.:|| Also: if you want me to give you a heads-up whenever I post another Star Wars game, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any feedback for me personally as a GM, I'd also love to hear it. Finally, here's the obligatory "Don't forget to vote" reminder. Hope you guys have a good weekend!|
| Jul 26, 2013 6:54 AM || - Sam K.:|| Hey, guys - thanks again for playing last night. I think there's some growing pains here at the least, but above all I had a good time. Hope you did too. |
| Jul 25, 2013 6:36 PM || - Ross H:|| Hey Sam - I don't know you to recognize you, but I'm here. Got a table near Cucina in the corner when you or others arrive. |
| Jul 22, 2013 10:39 AM || - Sam K.:|| No worries! Maybe next time. All - This can still go with three, but hopefully we can get a fourth. The more the merrier. |
| Jul 22, 2013 10:31 AM || - Connolly206:|| I'm sorry but I have to do a late drop out. Avvacs game which I've been in for a few months is finishing up on the same night now and as I've been playing that for some time I'm going to have to stay in it. My apologies for the same week as the game drop out.|
| Jul 18, 2013 10:18 AM || - Tracy:|| Having played this before, it's currently pre-gen only as it is kind of a teaser to the real game. Anyone familiar with Descent will pick this up really easily. If you play multiple sessions, you will level up and you get a surprising number of options and some insight into how character creation will ultimately work.|
| Jul 18, 2013 10:18 AM || - Sam K.:|| Since this adventure is designed to learn the system as you go, it's all pretty forgiving. If we have a good time and want to play again, I'm happy to go into character creation. In the meantime, if one of those pre-gens appeals in particular, let me know and it's yours. |
| Jul 18, 2013 10:16 AM || - Sam K.:|| We'll use pre-gens. It looks like Fantasy Flight hasn't made the defaults available online, but they are a human pilot/smuggler, a wookie mercenary, a droid colonist (think a more active C-3PO), and a twi-lek bounty hunter. I can tell you more about each if you'd like, but they're all designed to let you pretty easily intuit their roles/strengths and weaknesses. Fantasy Flight also put up two additional pre-gens at http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite_sec.asp?eidm=224&esem=4. |
| Jul 18, 2013 8:22 AM || - Connolly206:|| Sam, are we making characters at the table, or should we download some pregens?|
| Jul 15, 2013 4:06 PM || - Sam K.:|| Yes, I'm the idiot that missed the big "Edit" button. Commitment date has been extended to 7/23. Sorry for the spam, everyone. |
| Jul 15, 2013 4:01 PM || - Sam K.:|| To all on the interested list: just want to remind you that we have one open spot at the table for this. Game is on 7/25 at 7:00 pm at Citicenter. July 17 looks like the last day to commit on the site (I can't quite figure out how to extend that at the moment), but I'm happy to squeeze anyone in if we have space at the table come game day. |
| Jul 7, 2013 2:20 PM || - Sam K.:|| Great! Nothing you need to do. This is designed as a beginner adventure for everyone involved to learn the rules. I'll bring the per-gen characters, dice, etc. if you're interested, Fantasy Flight just released this launch video. Definitely a marketing piece, but there's some good stuff in there too. http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=4228|
| Jul 7, 2013 1:59 PM || - Ross H:|| OK, I'm definitely in town and I think my regular Thursday game is still on hiatus for the summer, so count me in for the 25th. Any prep we need to do? I haven't played this Star Wars yet.|
| Jul 7, 2013 1:16 PM || - Sam K.:|| You got it, Ross. July 25 (assuming we get one or two more people to commit).|
| Jul 6, 2013 4:12 PM || - Ross H:|| Hey Sam, is this on the 18th or 25th? Can't do the 18th, but hopeful about the 25th. |
| Jun 24, 2013 11:40 AM || - Ross H:|| Definitely interested. I need to confirm that I'm free (in terms of both potential work travel and a potential game conflict), but I will keep an eye on this.|
| Jun 12, 2013 8:27 AM || - Connolly206:|| Hey Sam, |
Would you mind shooting me an email, I have a few questions to ask and don't want to spam everyone on the site.
Connolly206@gmail.com is my email and this is Andrew, we played Tracy's Decent board game together at Bon gout.
| Jun 5, 2013 11:24 AM || - Jeannine:|| Uuu...This looks fun!! Ill commit a little closer to the date when I'm sure Ill be in the city|
| May 9, 2013 10:41 AM || - Sam K.:|| Thanks, guys!|
| May 9, 2013 10:19 AM || - Tracy:|| I love the game and have played it all the way through what is written. Sam, since you have experience with Fantasy Flight Games (Descent in particular) you'll find this very intuitive to run. If the game doesn't fill up I'll hop in.|
| May 8, 2013 2:13 PM || - Capt_Dan:|| If you haven't played with Sam, I'll vouch for him; this should be good.|
| May 8, 2013 10:13 AM || - Sam K.:|| FULL DISCLOSURE: I haven't run in a game in a long time, and I'm not terribly familiar with this system yet. But I'll do everything I can to prepare and make this as fun/smooth as possible for anyone that may want to play. And to clear things up: this is currently scheduled for July 18 at 7:00 p.m.; I goofed when doing the initial submit.|
