Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game 30th Anniversary Edition
Few books or games have had as enduring an impact upon the Star Wars galaxy and its fans as Star Wars™: The Roleplaying Game. Originally published by West End Games in 1987, it arrived at a time when the future of the Star Warsgalaxy was uncertain, and it captivated a whole generation of gamers with rules and guidelines that made it possible to design and enjoy adventures truly worthy of the Star Warsuniverse and its ongoing space opera.
Now Fantasy Flight Games is proud to offer faithful recreations of this influential rulebook and The Star Wars™ Sourcebook. Our Star Wars™: The Roleplaying Game 30th Anniversary Edition is a limited edition set of both books, printed with higher quality than the originals and packaged in a stylized slipcase.
These books were sent to Timothy Zahn as references when he started to develop Grand Admiral Thrawn and his Thrawn trilogy. They introduced materials that were later adopted into Star Warscanon, such as the names of alien races like the Twi'lek, Rodians, and Quarren. They even inspired members of the Lucasfilm Story Group as they worked on their writers' bible.
Now, Fantasy Flight Games is proud to return Star Wars: The Roleplaying to print as a collectible set of two high-quality, hardbound books presented in a stylized slipcase. You'll find all the original game materials—just as playable as ever—and they're presented with the same graphic design and fake, in-universe Star Wars advertisements for the Imperial Navy, the R2 astromech Droid, and more.
Even the books' use of black-and-white, blue ink, and full color sections have been recreated, along with its use of still photos and concept art, some of which have been updated for this new 30th Anniversary Edition. Finally, the books come with a foreword by Pablo Hidalgo, one of the creative executives on the Lucasfilm Story Group.
Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook
In just 144 pages, the Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game core rulebook opened the way to boundless adventures among the stars, and its rules systems are as fast and effective as ever. All you and your friends need to enjoy this seminal roleplaying experience are the core rulebook, pencils, paper, and a bunch of six-sided dice.
The rulebook, meanwhile, is broken into three sections, each of which is divided into a number of smaller, focused chapters.
- In the Player Section, you'll find everything you need to understand how the game allows characters to interact with each other and their environment. The rules for character creation are clearly presented and make it easy to design every type of Star Wars character you could imagine, from an aspiring Jedi to a rogue freighter pilot, from a grizzled soldier to a secretive politician.
- The Gamemaster Section further fleshes out the game with insight into all the things a gamemaster needs to run his or her players through fully realized Star Wars adventures. You'll find a useful introduction to gamemastering alongside detailed rules for starships, combat, wounds and healing, and using the Force.
- Finally, the Adventure Section steps back to look at the art of designing and running adventures in such a way as to make them truly entertaining and memorable Star Wars experiences. Then it jumps head first into the fully realized adventure "Rebel Breakout" before it presents a range of other adventure ideas you and your friends might pursue on your own.
Of course, it's the Star Wars universe that draws us to this game, and the rulebook acknowledges this fact with a plethora of photo stills and concept art, plus some fantastic and comical, retro-styled advertisements that get you into the mindset of one of the galaxy's countless citizens.
The Star Wars Sourcebook
Also weighing in at 144 pages, The Star Wars Sourcebook offers a wealth of information about the starships, vehicles, creatures, alien races, Rebel bases, and Imperial garrisons that can help ground your games fully within the Star Wars galaxy.
The book is divided into fifteen chapters: General Spacecraft Systems, Starfighters, Combat Starships, Space Transports, Droids, Repulsorlift Vehicles, Imperial Ground Assault Vehicles, Aliens, Creatures, General Equipment, Lightsabers, Stormtroopers, Rebel Bases, Imperial Garrisons, and Heroes and Villains.
These are accompanied by dozens upon dozens of charts, photos, pieces of concept art, schematic diagrams, and short fiction. This means that The Star Wars Sourcebook does more than simply help you populate your games; it provides a deeper insight into the Star Wars universe, itself, along with many of its various legends.
And as a relic of a bygone age, The Star Wars Sourcebook serves as a beautiful reminder of these legends, allowing you to enjoy them and recall an earlier time in the history of all things Star Wars, even as the newer films, television shows, comics, and novels blast us forward into the galaxy's future.
