The Star Wars Roleplaying Game is a tabletop role-playing game (RPG) set in the Star Wars universe. The game is published by West End Games (WEG) from 1987 to 1999, Wizards of the Coast (WotC) from 2000 to 2010 and Fantasy Flight Games (FFG) from 2011 onwards. Each publisher uses different game systems: WEG uses an earlier version of D6 Space, WotC uses its d20 system and FFG uses its own system.[1][2][3]

EditionsEdit

West End GamesEdit

WEG's game established much of the groundwork of what later became the "Star Wars" expanded universe, including many of the first uses of Star Wars alien names (such as the Twi'lek, Rodian, and Quarren). Even after Disney's reboot of the Star Wars Expanded Universe in 2014, much of this nomenclature still exists in new canon works.[1]

  • Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game (1987)
  • Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game - Second Edition (1992)
  • The Star Wars Roleplaying Game: Second Edition - Revised and Expanded (1996)

Wizards of the CoastEdit

WotC's game was first released around the time of the release of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace as it includes statistics for many of the film's major character. A revision of the game includes material from Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones.[2]

Fantasy Flight GamesEdit

FFG has released three standalone games as of 2016, all set within the time period of the Star Wars original trilogy. The game's dice system, together with the release of beta version of the first instalment, initially drew criticism for making the player pay more. The dice system later gain enthusiastic reviews after release for its ability to allow flexibility in storytelling.[3]
