“You know of the Rebellion against the Empire?”
It is a time of galactic civil war. As the mighty and tyrannical Galactic Empire sweeps away the last remnants of the Republic, members of the Rebel Alliance wage guerrilla warfare in a desperate bid to restore freedom to the galaxy…
To encapsulate the operatic grandeur of the Star Wars universe, the Star Wars Roleplaying Game is presented in three epic installments. Each of these independent game lines stands alone as a unique gaming experience, but all three share the same core mechanics, meaning they can be integrated to form a single unified system. Star Wars: Age of Rebellion is the second of these installments and takes place during the height of the Rebel Alliance’s struggle against the Empire.
In Age of Rebellion, you and your friends take the fight to the oppressive Galactic Empire as cunning spies, cocky pilots, and dedicated soldiers in the Rebel Alliance. Each member of the Rebellion has a unique and important part to play in the galaxy-spanning conflict, and as you play Age of Rebellion, your character will leave his mark on the Star Wars universe.
Age of Rebellion is fully compatible with the existing Star Wars®: Edge of the Empire™ Core Rulebook, but it relates a different experience. Instead of focusing on the debts and responsibilities that drive the characters who live in the galaxy’s seediest corners, Age of Rebellion establishes your character as an individual member of a military force united by common goals. Accordingly, your character’s contributions are tracked with unique mechanics for Duty. Your character’s Duty can have a profound effect on how you approach your adventures. You may strive to recruit as many new members to the Alliance as possible, or to sabotage every Imperial operation you come across. Duty helps tell your character’s story and reinforces your unique role in the Rebellion.

While it is important to note that some of the elements in this beta have been presented to ensure a more concise and focused playtest experience and are, therefore, not representative of the final product, the beta rulebook still contains all the rules and materials players need to enjoy countless games of Age of Rebellion.
