|Welcome to The Rancor Pit Forums, the website devoted to The Star Wars Roleplaying Game by West End Games, the original Star Wars RPG which uses the D6 system!
This bulletin board was originally created by Loc Taal in 2003 as a companion to his Star Wars website The Rancor Pit, which is no longer on the web (but the main page is archived here for nostalgia). Here is a link to Loc Taal’s original "Welcome to The Rancor Pit forums" thread. In 2017 Loc Taal handed the site over to me.
Here is a brief look at the site:
At the top of the page in the persistent header, you have links to the General phpBB forums FAQ, the site's Search function, the Memberlist, Register, and Log In. Once registered and logged in you can also access your Profile, Preferences, and Settings update screen and your Private Messages interface here.
The Rancor Pit Forum Index is the main page of this website (You probably went through it to get here). On most screens on this board, the Index link stays at the upper left. While logged in, on the upper right of the Index screen are links to View new posts since your last visit and View your own posts. The Index screen has all the forums broken up into categories. Here is a brief overview of the forum categories:

These forums are the heart of this website. In almost all of the board, the RAW in WEG’s The Star Wars Roleplaying Game: Second Edition, Revised and Expanded (1996) is the default version of the official rules being discussed unless otherwise specified or obvious from context.
This is where topics outside of the above go. Other games, the Star Wars films, etc.

This is for discussing and/or playing play-by-post games.
