West End Games
Free Digital Sourcebooks and
From 1987 to 1998, the Pennsylvania based
company West End Games released
official Star Wars roleplaying game sourcebooks, adventure supplements,
guides, and the Star Wars Adventure Journal, all of which contained
new stories set in the Star Wars universe, some as prose, but most as adventure scenarios for use in
the game. All of this material was approved by Lucasfilm and later made
its way into the background (and occasional foreground)
material of the novels and comic-books that comprised the Star Wars
Due to the owner's poor choice to siphon
money from West End Games into his failing shoe company Bocce Imports,
a last-ditch attempt to keep it afloat, West End Games went under and lost
the Star Wars license.
Two years later, Wizards of the Coast picked it up, and ran with their own
sourcebooks and supplements for a decade until they let it lapse in 2010.
Fantasy Flight Games now holds the license and from 2012 on has continued to
produce new and exciting roleplaying game sourcebooks, guides and adventures.
With the West End Games material now long out-of-print, and
expensive and time-consuming to
track down on the second-hand market, I have made it available here as free
digital PDFs for fans new and old to enjoy!
The following are arranged by type of
product. The West End Games number follows each title. This list also
includes professionally-produced PDF continuations of the D6 West End
Games series written by fans, and indicated by any linked title that
does not have the West End Games number following it.
Please note that a few of these PDFs are
imperfect, missing pages, or even entire sections of pages, particularly
stats for characters, ships, and such things. Although I don't have the
time to correct them, if anyone is willing to scan the missing pages,
send them along.
Also, if you happen to have any of the pre-Living Force RPGA material from
1988-2000, let me know and I'll post them here!

Press and the REUP team, Dave Amberson, Don Diestler, Mike Fett, Keith
Kilburn, Peter Lomas, Joseph McHorter, Oliver Queen, David Stairs, Daniel
Stull, Michael Fraley, and others for carrying the torch and continuing where West End
Games left off. Drop me a line if I've neglected a name so I can include
you to this site's list of acknowledgments. Special thanks to JF
Boivin for first bringing these to my attention, and to Robin Gosse for
helping me figure out what to do with them so they didn't eat up all my
