We have in a couple of cool new Star Wars products this month and it would be wrong of us not to talk 'em up.
1. Star Wars RPG: Galaxy of Intrigue
Espionage, back-room dealing, backstabbing, political maneuvering, and all the good stuff that goes on in back alleys and in the shadows of the Imperial Court are the focus of this newest book for the Star Wars RPG. Sounds like my kinda gaming.
From the back:
"While war rages on throughout the galaxy, a more subtle conflict is taking place in the shadows: a war of intrigue. Secrets are whispered in drk corners, bribes pass through corrupt hands, and saboteurs and assassins directly attack the resources and allies of their enemies. A campaign full of intrigue is a campaign full of mystery, where as one layer of the plot is revealed, so are three more mysteries whose true meaning have yet to be discovered.
Galaxy of Intrigue
presents a variety of options for both players and gamemasters, including:
- New talents, feats, weapons and equipment for nobles, spies, and saboteurs.
- A complete rules set for skill challenges.
- Guidelines for running campaigns full of intrigue.
- An all-new planet that boils over with secrecy and mystery.
- New campaign content, including a full-length adventure."
Some feat names to coddle your black hearts: Stand Tall, Wookie Grip, Sadistic Strike, Cut the Red Tape, Demoralizing Strike, and Meat Shield.
Some equipment for all of you shadow operators: Xerrol Nightsinger, Devaronian Blood-Poison, Panic Rings, and the 5-BT Threat Analysis Droid.
2. Star Wars Miniatures: The Dark Times
The newest Star Wars minis expansion is here!
From the back:
"For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times. Before the Empire. But the Jedi have fallen, and sinister forces control the galaxy...the dark times are here."
So who's in this set? Well, there is a new version of Chewbacca, two figures representing Kota's Militia (as seen in the Star Wars: Force Unleashed video game), A'Sharad Hett (the Tuscan Jedi who later became the infamous Darth Krayt), a Gungan bounty hunter, Merumeru (Wookie elder), the IG-88 Assassin Droid, and two members of the 501st Legion (Chris does not come with purchase).
