CUSTOMER REVIEWS
Fantasy Flight Games does a fantastic job at supporting this game. There are 2 of versions / iterations of this book: Force and Destiny and Edge of the Empire. The mechanics are the same, while character development and other plot driving devices are the differing factors.Edge of the Empire: Feels more like Firefly and Farscape. You are trying to avoid the Empire and survive in the galaxy while doing your own thing.Age of Rebellion: You will be working for the Alliance and openly engaging in open skirmishing / warfare with the Empire.Force and Destiny: Can do either of the above or your own story altogether. Focuses on force users and lightsaber techniques.All of the above are roughly 85-90% interchangeable / compatible with each other.As for the quality of Age of Rebellion:Pros:1) Combat system is fantastic if you don't like number crunching and the D20 system that D&D, Pathfinder, and many other games use, you are in luck! Narrative dice take the spot light here. In a nutshell You ultimately progress and improve your character to throw more good dice at a problem that throws bad dice at you. Your goal at the end of the day with the dice rolls is to have more good symbols then bad because they 1 good symbol cancels out a bad symbol as do the effects with a few exceptions. This inspires a very rich RP environment in and out of combat.2) This book(and the not included dice) is all you as a player and GM need to play this game. While a wide variety of supplements are available, they aren't required, but vastly enhance the game environment and toolbox available to GMs and players.Cons:1) The core books are bound poorly. For whatever reason, the three core rulesbooks suffer from the lack of proper binding or cheap/weak glue. After a month or so of light use, the hardback cover begins to separate from the spinal section. After 6 months - 1 year, you will find yourself needing to get this book rebound, or something similar. This has happened with both my EOTE and AOR rulebooks, as well as my friends copy of FAD. The smaller supplement / sourcebooks don't suffer from this.2) Errata and corrections are frequent. Take this as you will, but as a lot of situations are left to the GM, you can tell that each iteration of the game feels like a not completely version. FFG does frequently update the FAQ and make changes to the core books as well as sources, however, many abilities and a few pieces of gear and equipment leave you scratching your head as to why their were included in the first place.
Bynekogunner - February 29, 2016
I've only been an RPG guy for about a year and a half, but I've fallen in love with the beautiful art and construction of the rulebooks. As a big Star Wars guy this was the first book I bought myself, and I'm very happy with it. The physical construction is rock solid and the pages are packed with nice color and illustrations. My only issue is that some of the descriptions for items are a bit lacking, and the price/function charts for a few things seem oddly located.I won't spend a ton of time talking about the game itself as I'm sure there are more qualified people to do so, but I'm having a blast with it. I actually really like the narrative dice system, and I love that the book integrates with Edge of the Empire & Force and Destiny. We're currently playing a 5 player campaign with players using all three of the books and there have been zero issues.
nekogunner - December 14, 2015
Note that I am an enormous Star Wars nerd and geek, so this is your forewarning caveat that I gush over a lot of art, and this particular book is jam-packed with said same. The fact I could support charity through Amazon's programs is a bonus I'm humbled by.However, I do feel a need to be honest in any review, so allow me to forewarn folks that the information for the actual roleplaying game are scattered somewhat haphazardly (and, in some places, outright missing). For first-time Galaxy Masters (i.e. Gamemasters, Dungeon Masters), this will prove to be somewhat difficult to flip through. If you desire to start your own campaign, it's likely easier to purchase the Gamemaster sheets ahead of time for a condensed reading format of the essentials.The missing pieces are somewhat in-depth rules reading, regarding Duty. Every character in Age of Rebellion is assumed to be a member of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, and as a result, Player Characters are given a Duty rating. However, the rules are missing for how Duty is gained. In summary, I had to dig through Google and the Fantasy Flight Games forums to discover that the original idea was that each gaming session could award Players a total of anywhere from 5 to 15 Duty points to their overall Duty score, depending on what personal missions they had accomplished throughout the session.There are also a few areas where rules are somewhat abstracted or less talked-about. In other places, they've added on to rules concerning space combat between warships when placed beside the preceding Edge of the Empire book. In that chapter, Players are given a few additional Actions that can enhance their abilities to roleplay fighting aboard a capital ship, something that Edge of the Empire wasn't entirely designed for, I believe, as that one was focused more on freighter escapes (such as the YT-1300 Millennium Falcon).Universe fluff is very comprehensive, at least in listing key places of interest (namely planets), but also rather skint, which is fine, in that it allows a Galaxy Master to take the broad strokes of the galaxy and fill in the blanks wherever they wish.In regards to the quality, of course, I am obsessed with the art that others can churn out in droves, and Age of Rebellion delivers in spades. The artists really do earn their keep with every scene provided.My only problem regarding quality is in production. I was forewarned somewhat that the books of Fantasy Flight Games had weak binding, but within less than two weeks of purchasing, the binding glue and cloth that holds the pages together has already begun to fall apart. This is perhaps my biggest fear, as I love to flip through the pages, and I'm likely going to find myself eventually wearing this book out within a span of a year. We will see.Overall, I want to give this 4 out of 5 stars for its quality, with the issue of the binding being one I wish that FFG would consider in the future. I hope this helps others.
