Dawn of Rebellion, the first ever sourcebook of its kind, brings you to the era of the Galactic Civil War before the events of Rogue One™ and A New Hope™, focusing on the tension, strife, and fear encouraged by the Galactic Empire at the height of its power. This is an era where despair is prevalent and the future dark, except for a few unique individuals who carry hope like a torch against the darkness, a torch that would become the spark that ultimately lights the flames of rebellion, war, and freedom.
This book provides players with a wealth of new equipment, specializations, and races to paint this vibrant and dangerous galaxy in stark and stunning detail. But where Dawn of Rebellion truly shines as an era sourcebook is in its service of setting the stage for encounters, sessions, and entire campaigns in a time when the Empire is at its strongest. That is not to mean every campaign that makes use of this book will have the fall of the Emperor as its goal; instead, we can see how Star Wars™: Edge of the Empire, Star Wars™: Age of Rebellion, and Star Wars™: Force and Destiny might approach the same story element from unique angles, and how Game Masters can present these angles to their players.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Dawn of Rebellion, a new sourcebook for the Star Wars Roleplaying Game line.
Dawn of Rebellion is the first sourcebook of its kind, designed to be used alongside any of the three core roleplaying lines. Campaigns using Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, or Force and Destiny—or any combination of the same—will find a wealth of valuable information within its 144 pages. Primarily focusing on the years preceding the Battle of Yavin, Dawn of Rebellion features descriptions, context, and statistics for many of the iconic characters and vehicles appearing in the Star Wars: Rebels television show and in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The might of the Empire is at an unprecedented peak and a successful rebellion seems like a fever dream to all but the most optimistic. Even those who have no personal stake in the Galactic Civil War feel the tremendous impact of this new order.

Like the Smugglers you occasionally hunt, you’re a pragmatist who is willing to follow the money wherever it leads. Like the Hired Guns you tend to cross paths with, you’re well-armed and deadly. More than deadly, you’re so ruthless that even Imperial Officers fear you. You’re a Bounty Hunter, holding life and death in your hands, determined to catch your prey, no matter what.
No Disintegrations, an upcoming sourcebook for Star Wars: Edge of the Empire from Fantasy Flight Games, gives you the tools and talents necessary to succeed in your hunt, and the adventure material that Game Masters need to make that hunt thrilling, suspenseful, and a significant challenge. Within its ninety-six full color pages you’ll find new species, three Bounty Hunter specializations, plenty of sneaky and iconic ships, sophisticated gear, and much more.

Capturing one woman could earn you tens of thousands of credits in Mask of the Pirate Queen, an adventure for Star Wars: Edge of the Empire RPG, now available from Fantasy Flight Games.
The question is, if you can find her, will your love for money conquer all or will other priorities, Motivations, and Obligations compel you to let this elusive bounty slip through your fingers?
At the start of Mask of the Pirate Queen, you and your associates are suddenly contacted by a representitive of the Zann Corsortium, an oppressive criminal organization that preys on both the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire. That representative offers you a job: bring in the woman known as the Pirate Queen, dead or alive. Your rewards will be an impressive, but unnamed, amount of credits. Knowing the power and reputation of the Zann Consortium, it’s an offer you can’t refuse.
Mask of the Pirate Queen takes you on a trans-galactic bounty hunt, but that doesn’t mean you need a Bounty Hunter in your group to experience it. A smuggling team, company of Hired Guns, or even a group of Force sensitives might take up the job if they need the money badly enough. Regardless, you’ll need a group with a wide range of skills, from Astrogation and Piloting to Negotiation, Streetwise, and possibly even Lightsaber, to lift the veil of mysteries that surrounds the Pirate Queen.
