THANK YOU!

6 posts in this topic

Thank you so very much for the resurrection even in small the greatest rpg ever made. The D6 system embodied the star wars cinematic fashion with its fast paced system and lovingly crafted adventures and stories. i wish WEG hadn't chapter 11 way back. But i bought and still have every sourcebook and adventure ever made for this game. I love to be able to draw up a character in 10 minutes and be good to go. The individual character progression in skills and attributes let the player tailor each character and a party would be a broad spectrum and unique group. I hope this is the beginning of more and hopefully new productions. While im glad to support the FFG system of star wars it is a pale shadow to the Award winning D6 system. I hope your listening cause allot of players like me who latched onto this game in 1987 have been hoping and waiting for this day. Thank you again:) I got a good feeling about this!

I wasn't into RPGs as a child. But Star Wars was everything. I'd of loved it.

I've stayed away from FFG Star Wars RPGs because of the huge price tag. Though delivery to the UK has doubled the price, I've happily pre-ordered my copy.

I was originally using Savage World's or the End of the World lines for Roleplaying in a galaxy far far away.

Soon I'll own the real deal. I've heard good things about this. Great way to end a crappy year.

You should be able to get it through www.leisuregames.com talk to your vendor there. I original hail from London great rpg community. Especially with the guild of melee and magic don't know if they are still going. It's been a long time....a long time

I grew up on D6 Star Wars (my gaming life anyway) and I have to disagree. FFG captures what was good about the WEG version, and includes 30 years of mechanical advancement.

WEG Star Wars feels like a product of its time. I ran a game for some friends who'd never seen it too long ago and its flaws were immediately apparent when I viewed the game through their eyes.

Absolutely entitled to your opinion:) But a number of things bother me such as having the players roll their own difficulties. Sometimes in the stories best interests the characters have to succeed or fail certain task and to have it all out in the open on opposed tests destroys any of that notion. The space combat is very restrictive in terms of player choice and is very clunky in turn. It can only be rule jockeyed by certain talents to give you half a chance. Forget about having secondary adversaries. Their is a lot of pen and paper to turns from combat order to wounds and strain making for slow progress in what should be a very cinematic rpg experience. If you are looking for that kind of approach runequest does better for detail but still too stop motion for the feel of star wars imho. Take the new 7th rpg i find the narrative style to their approach to combat and mechanics wholly appropriate to its genre. Middle Earth was another wholly appropriate system to genre. But here like me i have seen many people complain on many forums/reddit etc about the system if it was just my personal dislike i would let it fly and try not to be the fly in other peoples ointment. But their are is a chorus of complaints. But with that said i still love their source material especially exploring Jedi sacred grounds, the hutt territories and so much more. But if you and your fellow players love it, bless you. Keeping Star Wars RPG alive is the primary objective:)
