Yawning Portal 30 years of Star Wars RPG’s article

Post by Big Mac » Fri Sep 08, 2017 2:07 pm

Yawning Portal have put up an article called 30 years of Star Wars RPG’s. The author, Thorsteinn Mar, covers the West End Games, Wizards of the Coast and finally Fantasy Flight Games versions of the game. Thorsteinn thinks that none of the RPGs have managed to capture the feel of Star Wars space dogfights, but has some positive things to say about each publisher. You might want to pop over and have a read.

Nice overview!

I think D6 handles SW dog fights very well though.
