Update and The Scoundrel

Unfortunately, progress on finishing up Age of Star Wars is a little behind. Life stuff aside, editing and tightening-up certain game mechanics has taken longer than expected. Not the least of these is the scoundrel class. It is the only class that has not seen a whole of playtesting. Hopefully that will change after Wednesday night when I will be running a one-shot. The class as it stands now is below.

As much as I would like to keep to a twice a week schedule, it is more likely that I will only be posting on Mondays going forward.

SCOUNDREL

Outlaws and rogues, scoundrels live outside the law and make up the rules as they go. Scoundrels are opportunistic and you are at your best when you can use your charisma to turn things in your favor. Blasting your way out of problem though is always an option when your smooth talking won’t do. See more information about the scoundrel.

  1. I love this idea of Age of star wars. I’m a big fan of Dragon age RPG and Titansgrave. I’m even a bigger fan of star wars, i’d love this to be a thing and love the ideas you have so far. Can’t wait to see everything fully completed for this.

  2. I’ve been following your Star Wars adaptation for months. It is excellent work. Your presentation (rules and layout) are amazing. Keep up the great work. Whenever it gets completed, real life takes priority, I’m sure it will be well worth the wait. Without qualification, it is the best AGE homebrew made.
