Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Homebrew will be going on a brief hiatus from now until FFG releases the Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook in the first week of July. Once the rulebook is out, I’m planning to go back through what has been posted so far and make sure everything is in line with the finalized, official rules. I’m also planning to post a set of PDF documents containing all of this site’s posts so readers can more easily use the content in their own games. Thanks for all your visits so far, and please look forward to more great content here in a few weeks!
I just wanted to let everyone know that the content I’m building right now is intended for usage with the Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Beginner Game rather than the more complex Beta Game. There isn’t a lot of difference between the two, but the Beta Game includes several more statistics for equipment such as Hard Points, Encumbrance, and Rarity.
My plan is to continue releasing content in line with the simplified rules put forth in the Beginner Game until we see the release of the Core Rulebook in late April. At that point, I’ll go back edit the content to fit the new rules and statistics. So don’t worry, this stuff’ll still be useful going forward!
Also, I’ve put up several links to homebrew content for EotE in the right-hand column. Take a look, and come back later today for more content here!
Welcome to Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Homebrew. As an avid fan of a number of FFG’s RPG properties, I was excited to hear about their release of a game based on the Star Wars license. Now that it’s out, I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve seen so far; and I look forward to FFG’s supplemental works.
In the meantime, I hope to use this blog to publish additional content for the game. Rest assured that I will do my absolute best to integrate my material into both the system laid out by FFG and the canon of Star Wars. Look forward to all kinds of different posts, from new sets of weapons and other equipment, iconic enemies from Star Wars lore, and even new adventures.
May the Force be with us!
