Homebrew Reference Book: Clone Wars Saga Edition Fan Sourcebook
The galaxy has seen the development of a vast array of devices over the millennia. Countless wars have been waged on every scale and an immeasurable amount of lives have been lost. Over the years, new devices have been created to be more effective on the battlefield. Some focus on efficiency and precision, or provide aid to those on the battlefield. Other creations aim to be more destructive than anything the galaxy has ever seen. The Clone Wars were no exception.
Research and development teams worked tirelessly on both sides to create a greater cache of weaponry and ingenious equipment in order to win the war. The Confederacy of Independent Systems uses its resources to manufacture everything from blasters to biochemical weapons. The Galactic Republic works equally hard to outdo their adversaries. The two armies create weapons of unspeakable devastation and devices that would be used in a variety of fields for years to come.

Generally more powerful than grenades, explosives were used frequently during the Clone Wars. Commando teams most commonly used explosive devices to destroy enemy structures or as siege weapons. Explosives cannot be used like grenades, but are commonly equipped with a timer allowing a delayed detonation of up to an hour on a standard timer, or longer with a specialized timer.

During the Clone Wars, protective armor saw increased usage. This was mostly attributed to the clones of the Grand Army of the Republic. Created from the genetic code of a Mandalorian, the Republic soldiers held the same proclivity for armor as their “Father,” Jango Fett. With assistance from Fett and the armorsmiths of Kamino, the clones made impressive use of body armor. Unfortunately for the clones, they were not the only ones to exploit the use of personal armor.

Clone Trooper Armor Variations Edit
Main Article: Clone Trooper Armor
Despite the fact that Clone Trooper Armor was made to be fully modular, the armor was typically pre-fitted to specifications dictated by individual military units. These are known configurations of clone trooper armor used during the Clone Wars.
General Equipment Edit
The time of the Clone Wars saw a wider variety of technology being used. Greater strides in technological advancement were achieved than there had been in a millennium. Common equipment available in a Clone Wars campaign is given in the following section.
Common Items Edit
The following collections are groups of items that while significant to most groups of adventurers, could be used in interesting ways by the Gamemasters to diversify a campaign.
- Communication Gear: Interesting new ways of communicating and disrupting transmissions were created and used during the Clone Wars.
- Medical Supplies: Various pieces of medical equipment have been used for millennia all across the galaxy. Some items have become so commonplace that many take them for granted.
- Information Technology: Important information was transmitted in a variety of ways in the Republic during the Clone Wars. From the mundane to the super secret takes all different shapes. Below are examples of how information was protected, stored or transferred.
Biological Weapons Edit
The Confederacy of Independent Systems, knowing it faced a mostly biological Republic army with its mechanically-dominant forces, quickly made the decision to employ a variety of biological and chemical weapons. Two beings were most directly responsible for creating the majority of these aberrations- Jenna Zan Arbor and Ovolot Qail Uthan. Like most other Poisons and Diseases, the following list can be used as a portable weapon in a Virus Bomb.
|Blue Shadow Virus||Contract, Inhaled||CL 10|

Weapons and technology used in war efforts were not always as overt as those seen on the battlefield. Some devices used during the Clone Wars carried out their missions in a more sinister approach. Traps are a common method of passive defense as well as offense, and they were employed frequently during the Clone Wars.
