I have a question for anyone who has read the free "Star Wars Classic Adventures" https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/0B3tO4WffOVuTMTNPTVBKcXEwc3c that I understand was put together by the now defunct SWD6 Google+ group.

That question being, is this basically the WEG Star Wars 1st Edition rules rewritten for clarity and better organization? or is it something else?

I ask as I'm not super familiar with this pdf nor the original 1E version of the WEG rules.

That is the REUP of 1e created by the REUP team that has completely abandoned the project and left the community for reasons unknown. I think it was created to reformat the 1e rules but honestly I haven't looked at since it first came out and only very briefly then.

I've played the three official 1e and both 2e sub-editions of the WEG SW RPG as they came out new, and in my opinion they overall got better with each version (culminating with R&E). I have a lot of nostalgia for 1e, and there are a few aspects/inspirations of it I have carried through to my modern house system, so I'm sorry I don't know more about this. It isn't talked about much here, and I feel the Introductory Adventure Game is a better game than any of the three official versions of 1e.

And the FFG-released 30th anniversary box set is a modern version of the 1e core game still for sale new in some places, so this free PDF version is somewhat competition for that, which is why I never uploaded it to the Rancor Pit Library after finding out that the project had been abandoned and there wouldn't be a second edition with the errors fixed.

Thank you for the detailed answer Supreme Chancellor, I appreciate it.

And my FFG 30th Anniversary set is in the mail so to speak as I type this Smile .
