This new edition is a faithful recreation of the much-loved West End Games original, featuring both the rulebook and a sourcebook, filled with all the aliens, vehicles etc. you need to adventure in the famous galaxy far, far away.
In a preview, Fantasy Flight took a look inside the pages of the rulebook at some of the character templates available.
There are twenty-four in total, including concepts like “Failed Jedi”, “Bounty Hunter”, “Arrogant Noble”, or “Alien Student of the Force”.
Some of these templates are a great place to start when coming up with backstory and it is especially good to see the opportunities to engage with the force players have, despite the lack of Jedi at this time.
Judging from the preview images when the edition was first announced last year, Fantasy Flight have paid careful attention to recreating the original books as closely as possible.
The original Star Wars Roleplaying Game is one which I often hear fond reminiscences of, so the chance for both new and old players to get their hands on it again is great to see.
Do you have any fond memories of this game?
