Raven Releases Two Star Wars Games

Share this

I'm sure this has been reported quite a few places in the last 24 hours since the announcement happened. Raven Software has released two of their games under the GPL (version 2.0). This means the games are truly free to download, modify and release. Granted, these aren't exactly new titles (Jedi Academy was released in late 2003 and Jedi Outcast was released in 2002), but like the old Id titles, like Quake, releasing the code makes it easier for modders to change things and can even give the system new life for other games.

Star Wars: Edge of the Empire - Dice Roller

Share this

With the release of Fantasy Flight Games (FFG) latest RPG, Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, comes another need for some players. The game system uses its own custom dice with unique symbols to handle the more cinematic or narrative style. FFG was kind enough to include a set of sticker sheets in the Beta version of the rules, which had their own issues. Also available for iOS (Apple products) and Android for $4.99 is a dice rolling app that provides dice for Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, Star Wars X-wing Miniatures Game and "regular" polyhedral dice for other games (Pathfinder, D&D 4e, etc...).
