"Your Hate has made you powerful."
-- Darth Sidious, Dark Lord of the Sith
"If you only knew the Power of the Dark Side!" -- Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith
The survival of the Republic depended on two factors: The wise governing of selfless administrators and law makers... and the preservation of harmony and justice by a heroic warrior fraternity -- the Jedi Knights.
In those glorious ancient days, a great many Force-sensitive individuals willingly entered arduous training under accomplished Jedi Masters, taking up the weapons, knowledge, and the powers of the Jedi Way. This is NOT their story.
Unfortunately, there were others who twisted the powers of the Force to serve their own personal ends -- Dark Jedi. And in time, the Dark Jedi sought out the ancient teachings of the Sith people, becoming Sith themselves. This is the history of those dark warriors weilding the power of the Force as a weapon to control and enslave empires.
NOTE1(2005): As many of the diehard Star Wars gamers know, Star Wars RPG started out as a production of West End Games, which produced more than 100 books on the subject matter, was then picked up by Wizards of the Coast around the time of Episode I: The Phantom Menace, since then they've released maybe 30 books on the subject matter. Wizards of the Coast is no longer producing Star Wars RPG materials (this went official late 2005) -- they are only holding onto the licensing for the Star Wars Miniatures game. So, where does that leave us Star Wars RPGers -- playing the same things over and over? Even RPGA Living Force is being dropped at the end of 2005. So, where does that leave us Star Wars RPGers -- playing d20 Future? It's not the same thing. So, as a gift to the fans of Star Wars RPG -- I'm producing a free online supplement to the d20 version of The Star Wars Roleplaying Game by Wizards of the Coast. This supplement will include an entire era of Star Wars Expanded Universe that has yet to be included in the d20 system. Hopefully this is done in accordance with the d20 license but I'm no legal expert so it's hard to tell. To use this resource material, you are expected to purchase (if you can even still buy it) the Revised Star Wars Core Rulebook for the d20 system by Wizards of the Coast -- I will not be repeating any copyrighted information from the printed book, you WILL have to buy it to use this website. Page numbers will be provided to let you know where to find what you're looking for.
UPDATE 2007: Though Wizards of the Coast had previously claimed they weren't going to produce anymore Star Wars Role-playing Game books, they did announce at Gen Con Indy 2006 that they will be producing a new Star Wars Role-playing Game Saga Edition to be released in April 2007. This is the only Star Wars RPG book they have slated for 2007, at least at this time. They are still producing the miniatures game and their Star Wars Miniatures: Starships set came out in early 2007. This may not be the ideal situation... but hooray for our side!
UPDATE 2009: I was one of the writers for Star Wars Saga Edition Clone Wars Campaign Guide. It went on to win a Silver ENnie at Gen Con 2009.
UPDATE 2010: I was one of the writers for Star Wars Saga Edition Galaxy of Intrigue.
UPDATE 2011: Wizards ends licensing deal with Lucasfilm. Later that year, at Gen Con, Fantasy Flight Games announces it has acquired the Star Wars RPG license.
UPDATE 2012: Fantasy Flight Star Wars RPG Beta released at Gen Con. Box set released at the end of the year.
UPDATE 2013: Disney buys Lucasfilm from George Lucas.
