Collapse of the Republic Sourcebook for Star Wars RPG Announced

March 13, 2019

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Collapse of the Republic sourcebook for Star Wars Roleplaying!

Collapse of the Republic explores the latter days of the Clone Wars, following on the events described in Rise of the Separatists, and is fully compatible with the complete Star Wars Roleplaying game lines including Edge of the EmpireAge of Rebellion, and Force and Destiny.

Here, you can look for new player character options, including the ability to play as a Death Watch Warrior, a Nightsister, and more! The Game Master also gets plenty of new tools, including profiles on iconic NPCs, gazeteers for famous planets during this era, and continuing campaigns through the events of Order 66 and the end of the Clone Wars.

Collapse of the Republic serves as a companion piece and a sequel of sorts to Rise of the Separatists. While the latter book details the first half of the Clone Wars, Collapse of the Republic details the end of the war and the Republic. Along with a new era embraced by this new book, you’ll also find new species and specializations included within the sourcebook—all of which played a role in the Clone Wars, including the mystic Dathomirians.
