...should you not be away doing something more constructive instead of inciting people to spend money on games - you know what a weak-willed bunch we are :-)

I kept seeing that at LGS for sale but never pulled the trigger. We have the FFG game and it's good but I have an aversion to IP-based RPGs. I do not like to have to know the multitude of cannon and keep up with it in-game for certain players.

the great thing about the old d6 Star Wars game is that you can really play a TON of scenarios with only the original 3 movies as canon and ignore the rest

Slightly related, as I was looking through my Humble Bundle library I noticed I had a coupon for a free copy of Pathfinder 2nd Edition hardback!

Yep, Thorfin has been the key cartographer for Mystara going back to the mid-90s.  He's been around a LOOOOOOONG time working on them

I have print copies of both in full-fold-out, and an extra copy of one of them still in shrink
