Antipode System

Below is the star system that The Boy and I worked on during vacation for the Star Wars game:


"Details are sketchy in the galactic databases on the Antipode system.  It was a member of the Old Republic, settled by a mix of sentient races.  Due to a nearby supernova approximately 1,000 years ago, the hyperlanes connecting Antipode to the rest of the galaxy shifted, causing it to be unreachable.  During last days of the Clone Wars, CIS scouts detected a large hyperlane shift and rediscovered Antipode.  The last official records indicate that at the close of the Clone Wars, the Antipode system was absorbed into the Galactic Empire as an Imperial Species Preservation Zone with extremely limited civilian access."

This should be interesting, as it will be the core setting of an Edge of the Empire campaign. :)

  1. Very nice work guys. I'm looking to learning more about the system as you guys play through your campaign.

  3. Me too. Very curious to watch to evolve.

    Not enamored with the Edge of the Empire product but I like what you guys have done with it.

    1. BA - Thanks. One interesting bit that I've found is that you can take the basic mechanics and just - well - of course you know this - IGNORE the official meaning of the dice. And just go off in any direction you want with rules. Like I said - of course - you know that. :)

  4. I'm curious about your mapping technique. Something you developed on your own or is it based off a SW template (or other one)?

    1. John - Um . . . I had a scribbled sketch of the system and wanted to clean it up for the players, but couldn't find my compass to draw circles, so I fired up Photoshop and fiddled with circles until it looked pretty. So no, no template - just accident.
