    Who are the best jedi, dark jedi and bounty hunters introduced by FFg? Curious as to everyone’s thoughts.

    Always. I'll be happy to start:

    The GMing advice contained in the "An Introduction to Gamemastering" and "Running Adventures" sections of the first edition WEG rulebook remain the best introductory advice for gamemasters I've read in 30 years (!!) of GMing. It should be required reading for anyone who wants to GM - not just Star Wars, but any RPG. It's that good.

    I have the original, rather than rereleased, versions of those two books (Rulebook and Sourcebook) - found them in a second hand bookshop a couple of years or so back. The covers were very beat-up, especially at the corners - but the text inside was fine.

    My collection of second-hand WEG sourcebooks are treasured parts of my SW collection. Especially my worn copies of the Rebel Alliance Sourcebook and Dark Empire Sourcebook.

    Easily: even though I will happily use FFG books as sourcebooks, to this day I still run D6 games. I hadn't played it since 1999, until a few old friends called me to run a quick one-shot for them and their partners, and I thought that dusting off D6 would be the best idea, as it's simple and easily picked up.

    That was five years ago, and I've been happily running games in the system since then. It's ease of play and extreme simplicity are perfect for OT-reminiscent gaming.

    So yeah, I'm anxiously waiting for the Amazon guy to drop the 30th anniversary on my mailbox. I already own both rulebooks (in two languages!) but I'll happily pay up so that more reprints happen in the future.

    My copy arrived today after a week's worth of eager waiting.

    What I'm gonna do now is to select the Gambler template, add 2D to the blaster skill and make the GFFA's equivalent of a certain John Henry Holiday.

    ;)

    I was going to pick it up, but sort of blew my budget on the $60 Masks of Nyarlathotep campaign.

    I never actually ran the WEG D6 Star Wars, despite owning hard copies of a number of the game books. During that time period, I was more into other RPGs (WEG's Paranoia and TORG, for instance) and my interest in Star Wars overall was practically nil (except for nostalgia for the OT) until the X-Wing series came out.

    Does anyone know if the availability of the 30th anniversary edition is really that limited? I don't quite have the funds right now, but I will in the near future. Should I be at all concerned?

    $60 for Masks? Have mercy. Not to sound like I'm constantly rubbing two pennies together (even though I am), but the D6 books are also a reminder of when gaming was a hobby that was within the reach of a modest budget. Anyone remember what the cover price was of the original D6 rulebook and sourcebook? If you said $14.95, you are correct.

    With inflation that's about 33USD now, so yeah, the actual price of the hobby has at least doubled (without even taking into consideration the increased volume with the boom of the gaming market in the last decade).
