Name: Star Wars: The Gygaxian Role-Playing Game [GL1]
Publisher: Kenobi Analog Games
Format: 8" x 5 3/4" booklet
Initial impression: This is basic D&D with light sabres!
At 32 pages this booklet is by no means an exhaustive foray into the world(s) of Star Wars. In fact, it provides just enough nuts and bolts to run the game, leaving lots of room for the referee to develop, expand, and explore. Six races (including droids) and five classes are offered up in the first section. Later sections are devoted to the Force, some technologies useful to adventurer types (including weapons), space craft, and finally some pages about alien beasts. Interestingly, that last section looks to the Traveller RPG for inspiration. Beasts fall under general categories like "Large Land Predator" and "Small Flying Herbivore" (which makes sense considering the vastness of the setting).
Overall a tantalizing little booklet that is quite different than previously published Star Wars games. Looking forward to running a scenario with it next weekend!
