It's been a while since anyone has done this. Not since WotC did that d20 Unknown Regions Sourcebook. But a good number of books have been published since then - the Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, and Force and Destiny series. Why haven't there been any attempts to make conversions of those books? No more time? No more interest? Or no more new materials?

I actually think some of the character templates by Shootingwomprats.

He has templates like modder ( Bounty hunter type from ffg books)
and others that to at least seems to be from these books.

Well it's nice and good that you got a good bunch ready to be posted. If I had the chance in the past, I could have helped like I did before - going through past material to see what WEG had already set up in d6 stats and what's been previously converted from d20. What I'm interested in at the moment are the Force powers and traditions. I'll see if I can swing by Barnes & Noble, see what's there, and look through it.

Unfortunately, neither of the Barnes and Nobles that I could get to have any Star Wars RPG books of any kind, so that's a bust. Looks I'm going to have to build up funds and buy from Amazon if I want to see these books.

I can say without hesitation that Forceally was a strong contributor to the team. His research hours alone saved us so much time so we could get down to converting. Would highly recommend his help.
