Fantasy Flight Games has announced the first supplementary adventure book for use in the Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Role playing Game. Beyond the Rim is announced as a “third quarter” release; the Star Wars: Edge of the Empire Core Rule book and has been delayed from its planned April release until July.
Beyond the Rim is a 96-page adventure in three acts. It takes place on the fringes of galactic society, carrying players from the hub-and-spoke space station known as the Wheel to the surface of a deadly jungle planet Cholganna at the edge of Wild Space. In addition to exploring the Edge of the Empire and uncovering decades-old secrets from the Clone Wars, the book offers potential subplots and gives the GM ways to customize the adventure for more experienced parties.
One of the highlights of the adventure is the effort made to bridge the Clone Wars with the Rebellion era in the adventure’s back story.
