Star Wars Nexus of Power
Star Wars Nexus of Power is a new sourcebook for the Star Wars Force and Destiny tabletop RPG and it was released on the 16th of March 2016. Throughout the 144 pages of this supplement you get to learn more about the Jedi temples and get many new features for the users of the Force.
The sourcebook will tell you more about the worlds where the Force still reigns such as Dagobah, Ilum and Ossus. Each new place will come with its own geography and strange native beasts will be encountered here as well. You learn a lot more about what a vergence is in this book – a place where the Force concentrates like a whirlpool, and these are the places where the temples were built.
The Jedi temple on Coruscant, the Outer Rim planet of Lothal and the dreamlike world of Mortis are all described in great detail to help the Game Master tell new stories here and along with these new areas you get access to four new playable species.
The lizard-like Bardottans are known as the Dagoyan Masters, the Devaronians are large horned bipedal mammals with strong sensitivity to the Force and the Gungans of Naboo live in harmony with the natural world. Finally there are the Aleena which are reptilian and quite small. These usually lack a tradition in using the Force but many of them were introduced into the Jedi Order due to their skill.
Along with these settings you get to learn about the Jedi traditions and mysticism and you might even discover some new powerful artifacts like the rarest lightsabers in existence, the Bardottan Sphere or some ancient tomes that tell of great deeds from the past.
There are several new player options and some modular encounters that you can add to your campaign even if you play an Edge of the Empire or Age of Rebellion adventure. The Jedi relics can be placed in one of those remote areas as well. Priceless artifacts will certainly appeal to the fortune seekers, smugglers and scoundrels since they might prove invaluable to their faction.
