I've looked through the book multiple times but can't find where the default starting credits amount is for new PCs.

I know you can get bonus credits for additional obligation, but I simply am looking for a page citation on starting credits amount.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Even though the books are nice in terms of layout.......a few things just are quite hidden time and again (they really should have put up a 1 page character creation summary as example......even though there is not much to do there........it is quite spread out pagewise) , would make things like this easier. \$\endgroup\$

New PCs start with 500 Credits

Starting Gear

Player Characters in Edge of the Empire receive a budget of credits to spend on starting gear before gameplay begins. This budget is 500 credits, although it can be increased by undertaking additional obligation (see page 40). - p.97 Edge of the Empire - Core Rulebook - Character Creation


You start with 500 credits. You can also check out this thread: https://community.fantasyflightgames.com/topic/81328-starting-credits/
