Age of Star Wars

So I saw the new Star Wars movie this weekend and it inspired the group of friends and I who saw it to maybe sit down at the table with a RPG. There was a really great adaptation of it using the AGE System by Enrique Bertran and have begun working on an update to be more in-line with Fantasy AGE.

The intended place in the timeline of Star Wars for this game is right after A New Hope. As such, there are no Force sensitive core classes. I do not want Force powers to work like magic, so it is something that will have to wait until later.

For now, enjoy!

      1. Just saw this. Way to pick it up and run with it. I just didn’t have the time to continue. You can reach me on twitter @newbiedm btw, I saw your post on the GR forums, which led me here.
