Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game

5.0 out of 5 stars Retro star wars at its best!, May 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As a roleplayer i love a simple to play game. As a star wars fan i love the feel of the original trilogy. This edition of star wars the role playing game delivers exactly that in a well structured book.

Other editions and versions of star wars rpgs just miss the mark in my mind. As other gaming companies get more and more money hungry the quality of the game gets compromised. This game system is so simple, 1 equals 1, there are no tables or complex rules.

The use of templates means you can jump straight in. Or if you have the time to make a character you can set that up also. Either method of character creation allows for customisation.

Excellent for beginners or old pro's like me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introductory textbook, August 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This textbook was reccomended to me by a friend who said it was a great starting place into entomology. It has helped me understand important principles in a very clear and concise manner. My interest in this subject is only recreational, but even still this book introduces the scientific terms in a manner that is entry level, and then progresses that knowledge as you procede through into the more specific areas of knowledge. This book covers a wide variety of insects and breaks them down according to their lifestyles making it easy for someone like me to access the knowledge within it's covers.

This book also discusses the many uses for entomology, beyond that of identification of insects. It shows you the applications of the knowledge you are gaining, and that is very important I think.

This book and a field guide is all you need to really get a working understanding of entomology and its uses as a science. This book gives you the theory behind the insects and why they are the way they are and is an excellent purchase even for me, the hobbyist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Genre Transcending Tips to make you Pro!, January 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When I purchased this book there were two things on my mind.
Firstly, Is it going to be smutty and should I feel like a perve buying it?
and Secondly, Is it actually going to help me add a bit of romantic fire into my writing.

The answer to the first question was NO, it is not smutty at all. And I'm absolutely happy to recommend this book openly.

To the second question, I was surprised at just how useful this book was.
It contains so many useful tips, most of which transcend the genre of romantic fiction.
Tips like character development, guidelines to hook readers in your first chapter, the importance of matching your main characters together, tips on setting, tips to help get you published.

I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who fancies themselves an author.
Regardless of genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Equally as Awesome, if less detailed., February 6, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is amazing, and while less detailed it certainly does provide the owner with all the musical information they need to rock out to their fave AFP songs.

The art and photography inside is just as excellent as all the others she has released.
The songs are amazing and beautiful.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Inside View Of What Is Going On., June 21, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I found this book to be an interesting inside view of what was going on. I first saw the book on the daily show with John Stewart, and thought i'd pick it up. Wether or not you agree with Douglas Feith on the issue of deception, this book is filled with information you should probably know.
Factual, mostly unbiased accounts of what was going on, and also what is in the official records too, is what this book is filled with. I personally liked that it has a map of that region of the world in the front, a good idea what with only 1 in 7 people in the U.S. able to find Iraq according to the latest statistics spread by news media. 4 stars.
