Edge of the Empire (and the whole Star Wars RPG line in general) is an excellent system. This week we’ll be explaining the basic rules – although they probably won’t be coming up again in the strips themselves, we just want people to get to know them. Look out for part 2, on Thursday.

We should note, we aren’t paid by FFG, not any more than JP is  – in a funny coincidence, he just uploaded an explanation video this week, as an introduction to their new Roll Play series. We simply love the system, and we’re having a blast with its predecessor, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 3rd ed.

For beginners – to the system, or even RP in general – we recommend the Edge of the Empire Beginner Game (affiliate link; currently hard to get, but should be available again soon). A great adventure, with everything included, and then some.
