Beyond the books: finding EU content in RPG magazines

May 4, 2017

The Expanded Universe is deep. It consists of books, comics, video games, role playing games, tv shows and films. It provides a lifetime of reading, playing and enjoyment. But just when you think you've read every book, watched every show, read every comic and played every possible RPG scenario, chances are you still have EU adventures awaiting. Where? In gaming magazines containing (official, licensed as well as unlicensed) Star Wars RPG scenarios. 

 

Below is a (probably) incomplete list of the various gaming mags containing everything from new EU characters, new stories, and additional RPG scenarios compatible with West End Games and Wizards of the Coast Star Wars games. Many of the stories and scenarios contained in the magazines below are of ambiguous canon within the Expanded Universe. Others are officially part of the EU, having been licensed directly. Most are in English, but some are actually in French!

 

Over the next few weeks, months, years, I'll be detailing each magazine, the EU content inside, and tips on where to track these magazines down to add to your collection. In the meantime, you can listen to my thoughts on one of the mags below, "Masters of Role Playing 8," from my YouTube channel.
