Stay in the Action
As a member of the Rebel Alliance, you’re part of an outmatched, guerrilla resistance group fighting in a civil war that spans the galaxy. Your enemies are more numerous and better funded. Their tactics rely upon the overwhelming strength of their TIEs, troopers, and Star Destroyers, and they’re everywhere.
To keep you in the action, and to ensure that every roll helps propel your story forward, Age of Rebellion makes use of a custom dice mechanic. Combining symbols for success and failure with symbols for “threat” and “advantage,” the game’s dice allow you to succeed at your actions, but still earn “threat,” or fail but still “advantages.” These results encourage stunning plot twists, and help translate the dramatic twists and turns of the Star Wars movies to your battles against the Empire!
