Fantasy Flight Games’ Citizens of the Galaxy* is a deck of cards for use with their Star Wars roleplaying games, and as I mentioned when I reviewed the card deck, this is an awesome idea that’s well worth exploring if you’re a GM of a Star Wars campaign. The cards are all produced using a print-on-demand system, but the quality is high enough that I’m betting most people cannot even tell that these aren’t mass-produced game cards.
There are other Star Wars adversary decks* available, and shuffling all of the cards into one deck could be a way to randomly generate encounters for Star Wars roleplaying game adventures. Actually, that’s a cool enough idea that I should experiment with it and then write up some brief guidelines on how to use the cards for adventure creation. Yeah, that sounds like a fun project for one of those nights when I can’t sleep.
Populate your Star Wars universe with a whole range of potential allies, enemies, and contacts. Three new Star Wars Roleplaying Adversary Decks each come with twenty cards, representing different NPCs drawn from the Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook, the Age of Rebellion Core Rulebook, or one of their supplements. Adversary cards present all your adversaries key statistics and information in an easily accessible fashion while their art and description text help you set the scene and flesh out your NPCs personalities.

An old friend has returned! I’ve written about the fan-created Star Wars H-Wing before (here and here), and now it we see that the team at Fantasy Flight Games has decided to bring that unofficial starship into the official Star Wars universe.
I was reading through Stay on Target* when I encountered the H-Wing on pp. 54 and 55 of the RPG supplement. This was an unexpected and awesome surprise! Fantasy Flight continues to impress me with their work on the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion* roleplaying game, and at the rate they’re going they are on track to make this every bit as valuable as the old West End Games Star Wars RPG.
Fantasy Flight Games’ Star Wars: Edge of the Empire RPG series (find at Amazon.com*) continues to grow, the game chugging along a lot stronger than I had expected when it was first launched in 2012. Three hardcover adventures and seven hardcover sourcebooks in the last four years is an impressive output for any roleplaying game, and now the game’s getting that eighth sourcebook as No Disintegrations is set for release in the next month or two. And as a guide to bounty hunters, this is certain to be a fun release and open up some wicked options. In fact, the latest preview for the book shows that players are in for a whole batch of new abilities to use with bounty hunter characters.

While cleaning over the weekend I ran across a copy of the 2007 Fantasy Flight Games product catalog. There are lots of great games showcased, but it’s the Mutant Chronicles miniatures game (find at Amazon.com*) that most caught my eye and sparked fond memories. I remember keeping an eye on this game as it was being promoted and even bought into the game when it was new. Played back when it was new and it is too bad that the game didn’t perform better on the market.
Still, running across the old catalog was a treat. Hard to believe how much the hobby game industry has changed since this catalog was new.
