Book Review: Main Rulebook 2nd Edition
Alright, letís take a look at this book. Itís got information all over the place! Adventure ideas, non-player character stats, vehicle information, starship information, templates to make characters, alien informationÖ..I could go on and on!
The layout is done fairly well, though the table of contents is rather poor. On my copy, I ended up putting little tabs on the pages that I reference often. When you look at everything that it offers though, boy...this book is worth it! It offers everything you need, and I mean EVERYTHING, to get going on playing Star Wars.
The system (D6) is also one of the best systems out there, and really captures the spirit of Star Wars. It can be easily summed up: Roll the dice equal to your skill, and attempt to beat a difficulty number for whatever action you attempt. If you roll over the difficulty, you succeed; if you roll under, you fail.
The book has 16 character templates in the back, offering a wide range of characters that your players can choose from. Overall, itís one of the best main rulebooks that Iíve seen.
