Retro RPG: Star Wars Second Edition Revised and Expanded

tar Wars: The Roleplaying Game is a role-playing game set in the Star Wars universe, written and published by West End Games (WEG) between 1987 and 1999.
        In 1992 West End Games published the second edition of the game, in which the title remained unchanged. But in 1996 a revision of the second edition saw the light of day, but its title was slightly changed from Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game -         Second Edition to The Star Wars Roleplaying Game: Second Edition - Revised and Expanded.
        The game, based on WEG's earlier Ghostbusters RPG, established much of the groundwork of what later became the Star Wars expanded universe, and its sourcebooks are still frequently cited by Star Wars fans as reference material. Lucasfilm considered the West End Games' Star Wars sourcebooks so authoritative that when Timothy Zahn was hired to write what became the Thrawn trilogy, he was sent a box of West End Games Star Wars books and directed to base his novel on the background material presented within. Many of the first uses of Star Wars alien names (such as the Twi'lek, Rodian, and Quarren) appeared for the first time in WEG's Star Wars books. Even after Disney's reboot of the Star Wars Expanded Universe in 2014, much of this nomenclature still exists in new canon works.
        By the end of the game's run around 140 sourcebook and adventure supplements were published for the game during its run through three editions.
