For this post I have two important news items.
First and foremost is the publication of the Age of Rebellion beginner game by Fantasy Flight Games. I am very excited about this. While I very much like the rules system for Edge of the Empire, I really want to use it to run adventures for characters fighting against the Empire. Helping to tell those kinds of stories is the purpose of this blog, after all. The beginner game provides an introductory scenario very similar to that of the Edge of the Empire beginner game, except that it has the heroes raiding a potential new base rather than fleeing from a vengeful crime boss. There's also a bonus adventure PDF with more material for using the base as a jumping-off point for Rebel activity.

Second, there's a big announcement on StarWars.com regarding the future of storytelling in the Galaxy Far, Far Away. It seems the powers that be are putting together a team to oversee continuity of future Expanded Universe material. What is more, they are not beholden to any of the existing material as they move forward. Check out the linked video for more information.
