"It is a vast criminal syndicate…its influence felt on every planet from the Core Worlds to the Outer Rim. Black Sun has existed for hundreds of years, and embedded itself in the very fiber of the galaxy. The resources at its disposal are almost limitless. The soldiers under its command number in the tens of thousands. The ignorant even call it the most powerful force in the known universe."
Edge of the Empire, the Star Wars™ roleplaying game set on the fringes of galactic society, is coming the first week of July . . . and you can be among the first to experience it! Head to your local retailer this Saturday for Free RPG Day, an annual event that encourages RPG enthusiasts to demo current and upcoming roleplaying games.
June 15th at participating games retailers, you’re invited to take part in Shadows of a Black Sun, an introductory adventure for Star Wars: Edge of the Empire. A dangerous bounty hunter is hiding amongst the populace of Coruscant, the capitol of the Empire. Over the gripping three-part adventure in Shadows of a Black Sun, the Player Characters will gather information on their target, track him through the streets of a bustling city, and (with luck and skill) face off against him in a final, deadly confrontation. But when faced with such a dangerous and highly trained target, will you remain the hunter...or become the prey?
Shadows of a Black Sun, a free introduction to Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, includes a full adventure, four pre-generated characters, and a set of basic rules to help players and Game Masters become familiar with game’s core mechanics. See if your local retailer is participating at the Free RPG Day Retailer Locator.
What's more, we're pleased to offer two bonus characters, downloadable via the links below or through our support page! Download them now in advance of this weekend's game, and be ready for your adventure!
