Star Wars Saga Edition ending, posted by CJ Ovalle

Well, it’s official:

There have been several questions lately regarding the future of the Star Wars Miniatures and Roleplaying Game and until now I haven’t had definitive answers to give you. After a lengthy evaluation, Wizards of the Coast has decided not to renew the Star Wars license with Lucasfilm. We’ve had a long and fantastic run, but with the economic downturn, we have made the tough decision to discontinue our Star Wars lines.

WotC is no longer going to have the Star Wars RPG license and is discontinuing its miniature line. I am a bit saddened by the news; I’ve got every WotC Star Wars book and I enjoy the system. I had fun with some of the people on this blog. ^_^ Plus, my regular group just started a game. I really, really hope that this news doesn’t mean that we won’t play it to completion- we’re going through the freely available Dawn of Defiance campaign, and having fun. ^_^

My group has been a bit burnt out on 4th Edition D&D. Star Wars is close enough in rules to 3.5 and 4e that it was familiar enough to get rolling, and in truth, in a lot of ways I personally prefer the SW mechanics to the 4th edition implementation of encounter/daily/utility powers. ^^; We’ll see what happens!
