FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can Anyone Play?

Yes, Legends of the Galaxy is open to the Public and anyone can come and enjoy a Galaxy Far Far Away… 

Where do I start?

It is recommended for players new to RPGs and SWRPG in particular to take advantage of the “Beginner Game” products. These are standalone “lite” versions of the main games that offer all the things you need to run a game for 2-4 PCs + 1 GM for 3-5 hours. Taking place in a linear adventure with pre-made characters, each encounter in the adventure introduces you to the rules of the system, very similar to a tutorial you may see in a video game. If you’re sure that you and your group want to play SWRPG then you can skip the beginner box, pick up a core rulebook. Need a group of friends? Check the Discord Server, Community Forums, and Find Players Near You.

How do I Handle a Disruptive Player?

If you ever run into a disruptive player who is ruining the fun for everyone at the table. Let your Game Master know.  We have a 3 strike warning rule.  

First the GM will warn the player to stop being disruptive or using inappropriate language.  

Second, the Game Master will pause the game and pull the disruptive player aside in private and see if  what is troubling them and if they would prefer to try and play at a different table as they are not getting along with the table they are playing at.

Third, the disruptive player will be asked to go home for the day.  In extreme cases if a player is disruptive and asked to go home during multiple events, they can be asked to not attend Legends of the Galaxy Events.

Remember,  Legends of the Galaxy is a family friendly event.  We do not tolerate disruptive players.

What is an Adventure Log?

The Adventure Logs in Legends of the Galaxy are meant to track a players; experience, core game mechanic (obligation, morality, duty, group duty), equipment their character carries, contacts, and enemies they have made.  It is to be a record of their Legendary Adventures. The Story Rewards section informs Game Masters of what has transpired during your Character’s past sessions. They can use this information to adjust the sessions they run making all games feel like they are directly tied into your story.

What Does a GM Report to Legends of the Galaxy?

As a Game Master if you report your Adventure Results to the Star Wars: Legends of the Galaxy staff we are able to use this information to influence future Star Wars RPG adventures being written.

To get started make a note of who all attended your game. You may want to collect the player’s names, their e-mail address, and their Character’s name.

Then you will want to take note of the Story Rewards of the adventure and any Legendary Actions the Players may have performed.

At the end of your game events you can report this to our staff and earn credit toward the GM Legendary Awards Program.

Please note, it is not required that a GM report their adventure results. However, it is highly encouraged.

What's the difference between Edge of the Empire | Age of Rebellion | Force and Destiny?

Each of these represents one of three campaign systems. They all abide by similar rules, the same dice, and of course, the Star Wars settings. Most importantly, the games are interchangeable! Edge of the Empire, the first of the three games, focuses on scum and villainy, the scoundrels scraping by on the fringes of the war. Age of Rebellion offers adventures for characters fighting in the galactic civil war with the Rebel Alliance. Force and Destiny gives players a chance to explore what it would be like as the remnants of the Jedi hunted by the Empire. Again – the systems are all cross-compatible. Don’t feel like you need to limit your game to one!

Do you cater to Saga / D6 / 5e / or other Star Wars RPGs?
While this website is predominantly built around Fantasy Flight Games and EDGE Studio’s systems, we do welcome our Star Wars RPG friends to use the facilities on this website or on the Discord. Feel free to post questions in the forums, on the Discord, or recruit for your campaigns, no matter the system (so long as it is a tabletop RPG).
