Create characters with checkered pasts and deep obligations, and experience the thrills and adventures of life on the outskirts and the fringes of the Star Wars galaxy.
Thousands of places across the galaxy exist where the influence of the Core Worlds’ laws and regulations are dimmed or muted. Edge of the Empire explores the lives and adventures of all those who live outside the comforts of established civilization or the law. Life on the outskirts is full of surprises, and your adventures will lead to any number of challenges, from sneaking smuggled medicine past an Imperial blockade, to piloting a ship through an asteroid field, to coaxing vital information out of hired thugs without starting a cantina brawl. Characters must rely on their innate abilities, trained skills, and special talents to survive.
Edge of the Empire is the first of three standalone, but fully cross-compatible roleplaying systems. Each introduces a unique dimension of the Star Wars play experience, but the core mechanics are fully interchangeable. Players and GMs will have the option to use these materials separately or combine them as they see fit in order to carve out a unique, custom roleplaying experience. Together, Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, and Force and Destiny open up the vast expanses of the entire Star Wars universe for your exploration.
