Loved this game back in the day.... D6 all the way. Pre-ordered the 30th anniversary edition. Can't wait!

So there are really two books to look at here. The first is the actual core rules for the Star Wars RPG and the second is the Star Wars Sourcebook, which does include stats for the RPG but is mostly a sort of prototype of the Star Wars encyclopedias of the 90s or the modern day Wookiepedia.

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.
