I think I'll have to put myself on the waitlist for this one. There's just too much going on with life right now, and I'm having trouble as it is keeping up with the games I'm already in. I'll keep lu ...

That's true about first edition, even in the core book it has both alien templates and still allows for you to build your own alien characters. The Sourcebook sometimes provides both options within th ...

Interesting points. It took us a long time to figure out Method 1, partly because for years we misinterpreted Method 2. In the Revised rulebook's alien chapter, where it says always lists 12D as the a ...

I see three basic ways to handle alien characters in WEG Star Wars.

That would be a very worthwhile project!

I've also been frustrated with wanting to use this chapter but not being able to do so very easily.

I think one good way to implement Imperial sector org ...

The Death Star isn't a very good example for cross-scale combat. To paraphrase the film, its stats are designed around a direct, large-scale assault (that is, massed combat against fleets of capital s ...

there were twelve Rebel starfighters that attacked the Death Star.
We count 30 rebel ships, Lord Vader, but they are so small they're evading our turbolasers.
