Taking Morality, Duty and Obligation from a Galaxy Far, Far Away for 5E D&D

Over at Nerdarchy the YouTube channel Nerdarchists Dave and Ted bring some ideas from a galaxy far, far away to the fifth edition Dungeons & Dragons table. They take inspiration from a mechanic from Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars Roleplaying and talk about how they’d implement a similar device in 5E D&D. In Star Wars RPG part of a character is your Morality, Duty or Obligation. These narrative mechanics are tied to Force and Destiny, Age of Rebellion and Edge of the Empire respectively. If I’m honest I’m not very familiar with FFG’s Star Wars RPG so when we were planning the video I wasn’t much help. But now that I’ve heard what Dave and Ted have to say, I’m certainly intrigued to explore this idea more and think about how Morality, Duty and Obligation can be a terrific tool for 5E D&D Dungeon Masters and players alike.

Star Wars The Force Awakens – Beginner Game Review – More in the Box than You think

Hello fellow Nerdarchist and Star Wars enthusiasts.  It is ground breaking time here at Nerdarchy.  We swr09_sample2have been blessed with getting an advanced copy of the Force Awakens beginner game from Fantasy Flight games.  It is not even available to pre-order and we already have our copy.  This is a first to get a review copy from a major publishing house like Fantasy Flight Games, so a big Thank you to them.

Dave and I each have our own copies of each of the other box sets.  You can check out the reviews I did on them here: Star Wars Edge of the Empire beginner game, Star Wars Age of Rebellion beginner game & Star Wars Force and Destiny beginner game.

Taken from the website:

Enjoy all-new adventures in the Star Wars universe with The Force Awakens™ Beginner Game!

The perfect entry into the Star Wars roleplaying experience for players of all skill levels, The Force Awakens Beginner Game introduces a complete, learn-as-you-go adventure that carries you from the sands of Jakku deep into the heart of a mystery that could change the course of the galaxy.

Note: Unlike our other Beginner Games, The Force Awakens Beginner Game will not be followed by a new Star Wars RPG game line. Instead, it draws upon the core mechanics shared by Star Wars®: Age of Rebellion, Star Wars®: Edge of the Empire, and Star Wars®: Force and Destiny. Players interested in continuing their Star Wars adventures can do so through any of these fully compatible systems.

Star Wars Force and Destiny – Beginner Game Review – More in the Box than You think

star warsHello Nerdarchist Ted here, May the Force be with you, and today we are going to delve into the Force and Destiny, The Star Wars Role Playing game, beginner box.  Last week we did the Age of Rebellion you can read it here.

I did a review of the Force and Destiny corebook here.but today I wanted to go through the beginner game in detail and talk about the value. Nerdarchist Dave, myself and fairly regular guest and DM on our channel, Scott Garibay sat down and did an unboxing video on this.

Contained in the box are a number of very cool and useful things. You get a complete set of 14 dice, very useful for playing the game. You get the read this first insert with a great example play.  You get the Long arm of the hit insert. There is a double sided fold out map.  You get a wonderful adventure book.  You get a mini or modified rule-book.  I say mini or modified because it is condensed from the core rule-book. Last you get 4 awesome character portfolios detailing the information needed to play these characters.

Now that you have all seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens by now I am certain that you are all eager to play as a Force using character and that little taste in Age of Rebellion is just not enough for you?  So why not Grab Force and Destiny?  You can see my post here about Age of Rebellion.

Will you be Guided by Force and Destiny?

Star Wars Role Playing Game – Age of Rebellion

Age of RebellionThe Empire rules the galaxy and you are brave enough to join the rebellion, welcome recruit.  This is Star Wars Age of Rebellion.  You are an underdog going up against this powerful force of the Empire.  Here you have a Duty.  Not only to your self but to the alliance that you serve.

Duty represents the driving factor of what you do for and why you joined the alliance.  What ever your Duty is, it is the point at which you are judged by how successful your contributions are to the Rebellion.  So if you are prepared to risk your life against the threat of the Empire this is the manual for you.

Where Will You be in This Age of Rebellion?

Star Wars Role Playing Game – Edge of the Empire

Edge of the Empire

 

I know that many of you have been playing Role Playing Games for a while.  If you have not played the Fantasy Flight Role Playing Game Star Wars you are missing out.  I am going to do a review of the three core books over the next few weeks.  Today I wanted to specifically review the Edge of the Empire.

Edge of the Empire is a complete rule book.  If you wanted to play a game that deals more with mercenaries and not affiliated with any organization, this is the game for you.
