Adventure Journal 6

Finished reading Star Wars Adventure Journal, Vol. 1, No. 6 (WEG, May 1995). A nice story about shooting Ranats, written by Kathy Tyers. The conclusion, I think, to Charlene Newcomb's story of Alex Winger, young rebel. Some material about Swoop Gangs. a couple of nice short stories, and the Galaxywide NewsNet feature.

A number of decent adventure ideas. I like the focus of this issue on New Republic stuff (in the adventures and stories and whatnot). Nods to the Thrawn trilogy abound, and building on the OT, of course. It is interesting to hear snippets (in the letters to the editor) about the upcoming prequel movies, and the ban on writing about the Clone Wars. What a different time in Star Wars history. As Nate's earlier post suggests, WEG was keeping the dream alive during the 1990's, along with the novels and comics. Still much to like about this era in SW gaming. I particularly enjoy the care and attention to detail that results in a more fleshed-out fictional world.
