going rogue is an expansion for 2-4 players which extends on galactic 2e by riley rethal, a belonging outside belonging game inspired by star wars. it adds:

  • 4 playbooks: the spy, the leveraged, the knight errant, and the convert
  • 2 pillars: the parliament and the intelligence
  • a new mechanic: group fates, and the fate of sacrifice

while the sort of story you tell is always up to you, going rogue is designed to make it easier to tell a specific kind of narrative and explore specific themes. inspired by the more ethically grey conflicts of star wars: rogue one, going rogue is built less to tell the base game's stories of charming heroes who inspire bravery across the galaxy, and more to tell the stories of troubled martyrs. going rogue makes significant use of galactic 2e, but it distinguishes itself in the type of questions it encourages you to explore:

  • how does cynicism serve us as a coping mechanism? when must we counteract it with hope, and how?
  • when do caution, principles, and commitment to democracy constrain our ability to act for liberation? when does our willingness to abandon such ideals undermine that which we’re fighting for?
  • what is worthy of sacrifice? what might be worth living another day?

testimonials

"the most fun i've ever had playing a ttrpg possibly ever (if by 'fun' you mean 'crying about everyone's deaths, just like rogue one')!"
- @downloadagoat, playtester


"truly cant overstate how fun it is to be playing in the like gritty learning-haltingly-when-it-is-worth-overcoming-distrust-for-solidarity space that is so wonderfully set up by this expansion"

Really glad I got the chance to play this. Super fun and easy to get in to. Mechanics facilitate story very well! Expertly put together.

Absolutely loved this expansion! The convert is a really interesting playbook and everything is really well fleshed out. Feels professional and not a product of a jam
