The chaos of the Clone Wars has left its devastation in countless systems. Worlds have been ravaged and brought to the brink of collapse. Citizens of thousands of worlds suffer from the turmoil of a conflict they never wanted, and the exhaustion that comes with a galaxy’s struggle for mere survival has opened the way for a nefarious and tyrannical evil to take control…
The Jedi Order has been eradicated and, with it, their particular religion and its impact on society. The Separatist cause has been lost. From the ashes of the corrupt and bureaucratic Senate, the former Chancellor Palpatine has secured a new Empire, promising peace and security for all who submit.
There are some who welcome this change. There are more, though, who see the Empire for what it is: a pernicious evil, a cancer upon the Force, and the enemy of all free people everywhere. Twisted by the dark side and his own insatiable lust for power, Emperor Palpatine and his formidable apprentice Darth Vader command a reign of terror across the galaxy. They wield destruction and fear as powerful weapons in their quest for galactic subjugation. And there is nothing standing in their way…
But there are those few brave individuals who still hold on to hope. Those lost among the stars who understand that, no matter how long the night, the dawn must come.
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.
