Few books or games have had as enduring an impact upon the¬†Star Wars¬†galaxy and its fans as¬†Star Wars‚Ñ¢: The Roleplaying Game. Originally published by West End Games in 1987, it arrived at a time when the future of the¬†Star Wars¬†galaxy 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 Wars¬†universe and its ongoing space opera.
Now Fantasy Flight Games is proud to offer faithful recreations of this influential rulebook and¬†The Star Wars‚Ñ¢ Sourcebook. Our¬†Star Wars‚Ñ¢: 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¬†the¬†Star Wars¬†canon, 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.
