Participate in grim and gritty adventures in places where morality is gray and nothing is certain. Ply your trade as a smuggler in the Outer Rim, collect bounties on the scum that live in the shadows of Coruscant, or try to establish a new colony on a planet beneath the Empire’s notice. In Edge of the Empire, every character has a past worth a story, your every step can lead to riches or peril, and you can visit the shadiest and most remote locations in the Star Wars universe.
The Core Rulebook contains all the information players and GMs need to create from scratch the memorable characters that will populate their campaigns. At the heart of character creation in Edge of the Empire is the idea that each character enters his or her first adventure with a history, and the baggage of some pre-existing obligations.
