Star Wars: Edge of the Empire

The Jewel of Yavin is an extended adventure supplement for Star Wars: Edge of the Empire.

Publisher's SummaryEdit

The Jewel of Yavin was slated from the beginning to be a thrilling, action-packed jewel heist, a sort of "Ocean’s 11 meets Star Wars". What better place to set the stage for a high-stakes caper than the Cloud City on Bespin?

During the adventure, the Player Characters are hired by a local Pantoran crime boss to steal the "unstealable" Jewel of Yavin, a brilliant corusca gem—not once, but twice. Corusca gems are mined deep in the gas layers of Yavin Prime and are used throughout the galaxy in decorations and heavy industry. Legends say they can also serve as the focusing crystal in lightsabers. Either way, they are worth more than enough to help a down-on-their-luck crew pay down some Obligation or purchase a brand new starship.

In addition to showcasing the skills and talents possessed by Scoundrels, Slicers, and Thieves, we wanted to provide rich social intrigue opportunities, as well as chances for piloting- and combat-focused characters to shine. If your party is missing a crucial role or skill-set, we’ve included half a dozen unique NPCs who can help fill out a crew.

Early on, you’ll have the chance to enter into the Cloud City Grand Prix, a cloud car race that takes you above Bespin’s clouds, with all the fancy flying, vehicle modification, and sabotage that that entails. Later, you’ll need to navigate Cloud City’s upper social strata to manipulate bidders and drive the auction sky-high before slicing in to divert the winning bid to your own accounts. Of course, if complications arise (as they always seem to in the Outer Rim), you’ll be glad you brought along some muscle.

Game Masters will find the Cloud City gazetteer section especially useful, both for running The Jewel of Yavin adventure and for basing their own Edge of the Empire campaigns on the floating city. The section features over a dozen pages of material detailing locations in the plaza district, Port Town, and the industrial levels. Lobot and Lando appear, of course, as do the famous Bespin Wing Guard. Player Characters will have a chance to interact with all of these iconic characters over the course of the adventure, for better or worse![1]
