From MakingStarWars.net comes this news:

Quote:
Sources are saying the next Star Wars Saga is going to take place during an era called “The High Republic” era.  It sounds like the setting is 400 years before The Skywalker Saga. This new saga is set during a time that the Sith’s “Rule of Two” has been established by Darth Bane, and Yoda is a Jedi, but isn’t the old Jedi we know from the Skywalker era.

Sounds like an interesting time. Are there any d6 supplements or Expanded Universe material that cover this 400 BBY era?

This could be an interesting era to run a campaign in. Anyone have any ideas on campaign seeds or adventures that would make sense in this setting?

well the only thing I recall was that Knights of the Old Republic book that WOTC did.. which someone converted it to d6.

WEG did not make anything for KOTR, because they no longer had the license and I think it was in WOTC's hands at the time.

Please see this thread for news/rumors/speculation about upcoming films. Thanks.

Wookieepedia is your friend. The sources for the Legends page for 400 BBY (below) are all post-WEG books, so there are definitely no D6 supplements that cover this era. There isn't much info about this era but there are a few EU sources listed for further research. I see that WotC retconned WEG by moving the Cloud City construction date forward to this date.

Most GMs would probably not want to run a campaign or adventures in this era if the era really is going to be featured in an upcoming SW film, because we would get a lot of new information from the film and supporting publications. Of course a new film would be Canon and Disney would not be beholden to use what little Legends info there is available about this time frame anyway.
