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" he had created in 1999 (archived here). 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 Account 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:

Overview
This is the category for this forum, The Rancor Pit Users/Forums Info. Site announcements will be posted here.

Star Wars D6 Roleplaying Game
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.

General
This is where topics outside of the above go. Other games, the Star Wars films, etc.

Email Notifications
Due to reasons beyond my control, I've had to disable email notifications for new posts to threads you may be watching. The checkboxes to "Notify me when a reply is posted" and the link to "Watch this topic for replies" will still be displayed, but the emails will no longer be sent. I left the checkboxes and links in place in the hopes that the email notifications can eventually be enabled again. I apologize for any inconvenience.

I think this is still in effect. However I have increased the time that the forum logs you out for inactivity, so if you are viewing new posts since your last visit and get interrupted, you will have more time to get through them before being timed out.

...This only affects watched topics. Email notifications for new Private Messages should still be sent as normal.

Also, the "Pop up window on new Private Message" preference does still work if your browser has been told to allow pop-ups for this site. I strongly recommend opting into one of these preferences to make sure that any Admin and Moderator PMs are not missed.

Signatures
Please keep your signatures text-only. This keeps the pages looking cleaner and loading faster. Thanks!

Avatars
Uploading your own avatars has been disabled. If you've got an avatar you'd like to use, send it to me and I'll add it to the gallery.

The avatar gallery is accessed from the bottom of your profile update screen. I've recently added over 40 new avatar images from the Disney SW films to the bottom of the gallery. (Please do not choose my avatar.)

If you would still like a different avatar image added for you, requests to upload new avatars come to me now. All avatar images must be no bigger than 100x100 pixels with a file size of 10 KB or less. https://pixlr.com/editor/ is a decent little online image editor that allows you to open images from your computer or a URL, crop, resize and easily adjust the quality to get file size 10 KB or less. I prefer that a ready image is sitting online somewhere and the URL to it is PMed to me, but if you really need to send me the file directly from your computer, you can email it to forums -at- rancorpit.com (Please don't forget to give your username and say that the image is an avatar request).

If you have any questions, please let me know.
