Saturday 13, September is Star Wars Rebellion Day!

This September 13th is Rebellion Day, and it’s your chance to participate in the exciting Star Wars®: Age of Rebellion™ adventure, Rescue at Glare Peak!

Rescue at Glare Peak is a special introductory Age of Rebellion adventure designed specifically for the event, and it challenges you and your friends to complete a daring rescue mission while the fate of the galaxy hangs in the balance.

The Rebel Alliance needs all the heroes it can get. Will you be one of them? Find a Rebellion Day event near you!

What Is Rebellion Day?

Taking place worldwide on September 13th, FFG’s Rebellion Day is a special event designed to build upon the burgeoning excitement and community for the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Roleplaying Game.

The highlight of Rebellion Day is Rescue at Glare Peak. Designed for two to five players, Rescue at Glare Peak allows you and your friends to assume the roles of heroic Rebel agents who must work together to rescue a pair of Rebel pilots who have crash-landed on the planet Trivar II.

Four different pre-generated characters introduce several of the many careers, specializations, skills, and talents ofAge of Rebellion. Your group will be able to take on the roles of an Ithorian Engineer, a Bothan Spy, a Human Commander, and a Duros Soldier. These are talented characters, but you’ll still need to make good use of all their tricks, talents, and technology in order to succeed at your mission!

What Is Star Wars: Age of Rebellion?

Age of Rebellion is the second of three epic, fully cross-compatible Star Wars roleplaying systems by Fantasy Flight Games. It thrusts players directly into the ongoing Galactic Civil War between the evil Empire and the rag-tag Rebel Alliance. Woefully outnumbered and outgunned by the Empire and its vast military might, player characters may undertake any of a wide variety of missions. They may perform reconnaissance, engage in guerrilla warfare, or recruit citizens from across the galaxy.

At the core of FFG’s Star Wars roleplaying mechanics are its custom dice. Designed to enhance a heavily narrative roleplaying system, these dice combine symbols for success and failure with symbols for “threat” and “advantage.” As a result, players may succeed at their actions but still earn “threat,” or fail but still “advantages.” These results encourage stunning plot twists, and every roll of the dice encourages additional storytelling.

Take Your Stand for Galactic Freedom

Whether you’re a new recruit or a grizzled veteran of the Galactic Civil War, Rebellion Day is your chance to take your stand for galactic freedom!

Join other Age of Rebellion players and celebrate Star Wars roleplaying by banding together to tackle the challenges of Rescue at Glare Peak. This adventure is full of fantastic Star Wars action, high stakes, and dramatic twists, and it’s running on Saturday, September 13th.
