I opened this book most days of the 5 years 1990-1994. I loved this game considerably more than my future employment prospects. And yet, those years of being a Star Wars RPG Game Master contributed significant amounts of moral fibre to the person I am today.

This is a great game. Star Wars is the role-playing game that started me into role-playing--we used to play from a bootleg copy of the first edition. I played and played this game.
