Note: Grenades are explosives and follow a single, but lethal rule. If the grenade hits it’s area (an Average (+1) difficulty assuming the attacker throws it at least one zone away), then everyone in the zone must make an Athletics role versus the Power of the grenade. Failure means the character is Taken Out if the grenade was lethal in nature, or has an aspect placed on them if non-lethal. Success means the character takes a Major consequence if the grenade was lethal, or has a boost against them if the grenade was non-lethal. Success with style means the character avoids all effects the grenade might have.
The Range assumes a thrown grenade. Grenades fired by a grenade launcher use the launcher’s Range instead.

‘’Equipment marked with an asterisk (*) is restricted. A character must have an aspect or special reason to have this item.’’
Several classes of weapons are described. The Class of a weapon describes in general terms how a weapon might be used. See the list below.
- Finesse weapons grant a +1 to Create an Advantage actions using them.
- Martial weapons grant +1 bonus stress upon a successful attack action.
- Ranged weapons can be used to target people and things anywhere on the battlefield (unless the weapon also has the Short Range aspect — see below)
- Massive weapons grant +2 bonus stress upon a successful attack action, but the wielder must always go last in an exchange.
2H. Weapons with the 2H Aspect means that shields cannot be used with it.
Commlink. Equipment with this aspect allows the character to speak to others with the same equipment over any distance.
Cortosis Weave or Phrik Alloy. Equipment with this aspect can resist energy weapons, including lightsabers. So, armor with this aspect can be invoked to aid defend actions against lightsabers.
Disrupter. These weapons atomize victims. When a target is Taken Out by this weapon, they are disintegrated, typically in an extremely painful way.
Easily Concealed. Invoke this aspect for a bonus to Stealth rolls to hide the item.
Freeze. The weapon also places a "frozen" aspect on the target on a successful hit. If not removed somehow, then the next exchange it will become a Major consequence.
Heavy Weapon. These weapons are Giant Scale weapons that can be wielded by a person (or perhaps a small team of person-sized creatures). See Matters of Scale. When attacking person-scale targets, attack an entire zone and then add an aspect to the zone such as ‘’’’’On Fire’’’’’ or ‘’’’’Cratered’’’’’.
Ion Weapon. These weapons do half damage (round up the amount of stress inflicted) to organics but droids, vehicles and characters with cybernetic replacements are vulnerable to Ion Weapons' full damage. This Aspect is always "on", and does not need to be tagged.
Jet Pack. These allow the character to ignore barrier penalties in situations where rocket-assisted leaps can cross the barrier. Armor penalties still reduce any Maneuver rolls, however.
Life Support. Equipment with this aspect includes built-in life support systems capable of keeping the wearer alive even in the vacuum of space. If duration is important, most such systems can work for 10 hours or less.
Lightsaber. Targets may not invoke armor for defense against a lightsaber (unless it has a Cortosis or Phrik Alloy aspect), but they may invoke an energy shield.
Limited Ammo. These weapons have especially limited ammunition. This aspect can be compelled any time after the weapon is used to declare the weapon is ‘’’’’Out of Ammunition’’’’’.
Pistol. Pistols are effective out to a range of two zones.
Rapid. The weapon is designed to make very quick attacks. Invoke this aspect for a bonus to any action performed using this weapon.
Short Range. Weapons with a Short Range have increased difficulty to hit a target depending on their distance. Increase the difficulty to hit (or add a bonus to a defense roll) by +1 per zone of distance to the target.
Snare. Characters hit with a Snare attack take no damage but acquire a Snared aspect that prevents physical actions. It can be broken with an overcome action using Physique against a Fair (+2) difficulty. Snared comes with one free invoke; an attack that succeeded with style grant two free invokes instead. These can be spent to increase the difficulty to escape the snare.
Stun Setting. The weapon can be set to "stun", which, if used, will inflict an Aspect "Stunned" on the target and a subsequent Minor Consequence on the target. Armor does not defend against this attack, although Energy Shields may.
Unblockable. Can't be blocked by a lightsaber (typically using the Fight stunts Deflect or Reflect).
Very High Rate of Fire. Invoke this aspect for a bonus to attack.
Vicious. Invoke this aspect after a successful attack to gain a bonus to stress done to the target.
Armor can be invoked for a bonus to defense actions to defend against a physical attack. Aside from paying a Fate point for the bonus, armor can be invoked a number of times per game session for free. In general, that means light armor can be invoked for free once per session, medium armor twice per session and heavy armor three times per session.
Between fights, a character with Engineering can make an Overcome roll to restore those free invocations (up to the maximum number of free invokes possible with that grade of armor, or two invokes, which ever is lower). The difficulty is Mediocre (+0) unless the character has taken consequences indicating battle damage to their armor. In that case, the difficulty increases by +2 for each consequence affecting the armor. Thus, a successful Engineering roll can restore a single free invoke for light armor or up to two free invokes for medium or heavy armor, assuming success with style was achieved. Only one Engineering roll to restore free invokes can be made per scene.
Energy shields can be invoked once for free per scene.
See the notes under the Fight skill.
Alternate crystals may be acquired to allow customization and personalization. Basic crystals can be found in yellow, blue and green. The synthetic crystals Sith use are red. Other colors are possible, usually a side effect of a special crystal. The effect of such crystals are usually described as an Aspect that can be invoked by the wielders. These rare crystals are not available for purchase and must be found or gifted.

The rarity of lightsaber crystals can be used as a guide to their relative worth. Some very rare crystals are actually jewels and exotic crystals are either extremely dangerous to recover or parts of unique artifacts. Rare crystals are general worth thousands of credits if purchased on the open market, very rare tens or even hundreds of thousands, and exotic crystals, if they can even be found on the market, are worth millions.
Droids can be built like any other character. The following rules are the same as those describing NPCs in Fate Core, but repeated here for reference.
Most droids will be nameless characters of Average (no stress boxes, any damage takes them out), Fair (one stress box), or Good (two stress boxes). They have a column of a couple skills with the highest equal to their rating. They might have one or two aspects.
Important droids can be build like supporting characters, with higher skills and a few aspects. One or two stunts are also appropriate.
Very important droids are those that are named and detailed at or above the level of PCs in terms of skill and possessing a number of stunts.
Droids have the advantage of not needing sleep, eat, or breath. However, they are affected by ion weapons as if they were lethal to them and so take full damage. They also do not “heal”, but must be repaired to recover from damage. This works essentially the same as healing in any character, except that it requires an Engineering roll instead of Lore or Healing.
Sometimes a character might suffer an extreme injury that involves the loss of a limb. Recovery typically involves replacement of the limb with a mechanical substitute. As for any extreme injury, an aspect must be permanently changed or added to describe injury. So, when the recovery process is begun, a character should change an aspect to reflect that she now has a cybernetic implant. She will be affected by ion weapons at full damage instead of half damage, and the aspect may be compelled to describe some kind of malfunction.
Some characters may (rarely) voluntarily opt for implants that grant them extra facility or skill. An aspect should be taken in order to reflect the cybernetic modification, and then Refresh might be spent to purchase appropriate stunts.
For example a Cybernetic aspect might justify the purchase of Incredible Strength (see the Races section for a description), or a player might purchase other special stunts normally available only to certain races, like Night Vision or Infravision.
The simplest way to handle vehicles is to provide a set of aspects. Players will man the vehicle so it makes sense to have them use their own skills to pilot them, fire guns, and avoid damage.
Ships can take a Mild, Major, and Severe consequence, but have no stress boxes of their own. Optionally, a character can opt to take a consequence for a ship, if they are the pilot or a member of the crew.
Vehicles that come with their own crew or designed to work on their own (such as for droid tanks, droid fighters, and the like), can have their own skill tree. Examples of vehicles follow in the Vehicles section below.
