D6 Holocron has most of the WEG stuff.

 

I had no idea.  Some of this stuff looks great, I must have only been exposed to the worst of it.  I knew I'd hit gold when I saw a title by Sterling Hershey...

 

Glad to see you coming around. :P

Being the Star Wars fan that I am and wanting to have some accuracy in my X-Wing scenario building I acquired a few of these books a little while ago and I was wondering if they still had relevancy? As I recall, much of the early EU was based on these books.

 

Sure the stats are incompatable but I was wondering if anyone else was also going to reference them for thier campaigns?

 

We use them all the time. While we cant use the specific mechanics, we can use them for prices, availability and general functionality.

I find the WEG Star Wars adventures easily convert to the FFG system. The stories are great departure points for Edge of the Empire stories and fit with the limited Force powers and era too.

 

I used them for Saga games too but they seem to fit even better in the FFG system.

You know what the fun thing is about the Star Wars universe in your games......it's yours. Make it what you will and discover.  If AOR is anything like EotE there may not be a lot of adventures or modules made for the games.  Of course we are only a year into this right?  But going back to WEG d6, you have a plethora of material from the original series.  Now I would love to see more material come out of FFG.

WEG books were, are and still be the best resource. I am still looking for the most interesting adventures and supplements. :)

Han Solo shot first, midichlosomething do not exist, Rebel Alliance was created as in the WEG books and indoctrination theory is the true ending of ME3.

There is a whole lot of good source material in the old WEG books. I just ran the first part of Graveyard of Alderaan for my AoR group tonight. I had to do my own stats for the bad guys and I made some minor changes/updates to the story, but I would do that for any published mod. In short, if you can get your hands on some of the old WEG books, go for it.

I have been re-reading Flashpoint: Brak Sector and it is a good set-up for an Age of Rebellion campaign.

 

The campaign book has a good setup, lots of adventure hooks, and a limited area that would be good for sandbox-style play.
