Here is the actual work done so far. Many have chimed in with opinions in this thread and the original 74-page thread. We need less talk and more rock.

I only said we need a project leader because with all the discussion about it and opinions, nothing has actually been done since the project was abandoned. Too much committee and not enough chairman, maybe? The movie came out in 2005. This project began active development in 2006. The materials of the work done so far have been public since 2014. No one in any Star Wars D6 community I am involved with has done it, or shared that anyone else did it. Someone could have used what was there and finished it by now, or someone could have started from scratch and made an RotS galaxy guide sometime since 2005. Now it is the fifth most recent Star Wars film. If anyone had made a RotS GG, we would have heard about it. But no one has, which means if we don't do it, no one will.

Crowd source all you want. Whatever gets it done! I suggest moving forward with Forceally's suggestion of making it a pre-2008 "Legends" edition first (what all the existing material is), and then later editing it to be a Disney canon edition.


After reviewing the material, I think this could be done with moderate effort. The character stats are done and just need minor editing (honestly that's half the book right there).

What's needed (please chime in if I'm forgetting something):
  1. Vehicle Stats
  2. Ship Stats
  3. Creature Stats
  4. New Force Powers/Rules (if any)
  5. Location write-ups
  6. Background material fleshing out the state of the galaxy during RoTS
  7. Illustrations!


Anything else?

I haven't looked through it, but years ago I remember it being said that it still needs the character capsules written up, the fluff text to go with the stats. Was that completed?

IIRC, that's what needed to be done. The "fluff" capsules for everything.

Only about 10% of the characters have the required "fluff" text. Upon further examination of the Stats file, there are many vehicles and ships listed (all stats, no fluff) so that's helpful.

Again, the stats are nearly completed (I estimate 90%) so they all just need layout (easily copied from the other GG examples), a bit more artwork (although we can probalby get by with scans and some stock pics), and most of all, the fluffy write-ups we've all come to know and love. Oh, and any rules revisions or clarifications needed to make RoTS fit into the D6 sandbox.

Ok, silly question: Now that I've stated the obvious, what am I missing? Very Happy

Thanks for the breakdown.

I think the AotC (revised edition) layout would be a good starting point. That's the version in the Library.
