This is a brief overview that lays out the basic of setting up and playing Fantasy Flight Games' Star Wars Roleplaying Game series. 

Recommended number of players: 4-6, Play time 2-4 hours on average

Star Wars is a game that requires one player take on the role of Game Master, managing the rules and operating the world.

3) Star Wars RPG Dice and a pair of Percentile Dice (2 ten sided dice)

4) Writing Utensils

"The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices - to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill and suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all its own - for the children and the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is that these things cannot be confined to The Twilight Zone." - Rod Sterling
