Just in time for Star Wars Day, Fantasy Flight Games announced a new entry for their Star Wars Roleplaying Game: The Force Awakens Beginner Game.
If it follows the pattern of previous beginner boxes, this will come with premade characters, an entry-level adventure, and dice. These boxes are exactly what they sound like: a perfect way to introduce people to the whole idea of roleplaying games.
The adventure here includes four characters--a veteran soldier, an ace pilot, a desert explorer, and an Abednedo colonist. You'll find yourselves on the planet Jakku--where we met Rey and BB-8--exploring a New Republic corvette that's crashed in the desert. What secrets does it hold? YOU get to find out!
I (Firestone) have been very open about my LOVE of this system. This looks like another great entry point to this, my favorite RPG.
We'll see this box later on this year. Theology of Games has reached out to Fantasy Flight to see if there are plans for Core Rulebooks, Modules, or any other RPG products using The Force Awakens, or if this is intended as a stepping stone for people to move to one of the three existing lines. We'll update as soon as we hear back from them.
Thanks so much for reading!
