I was curious if anyone remembers a certain page from the Role playing Game that came out around 87. And It is possible as I have learned as I have gotten older that certain memories are really inventions so guess I am curious if it exists


Anyways In the back of one the books was a page advertising a campaign book coming out where The Empire was hiring bounty hunters to track down the last of the Jedi... I may have some details wrong the book to my knowledge never came out ... the page was very much either a wanted poster or set in a old west type of planet.  As a kid I was just puzzled by the..... there are more Jedis ???? 


I never actually owned the RPG books my friend did but at the time they were my first exposure to anything beyond the OT movies and I devoured every little detail when I could.  

I was just curious if anyone had any idea that if this page exists or maybe a website somewhere that has scans of the 1st RPG.  

Thanks

I wonder if the page you are looking for is in one of the manuals shown on this site:

Thanks Matt its The Tatooine Manhunt I just had the information wrong but thats the cover

I went thru some of the PDFs I forgot how good those RPGs were ... so much so Lucas himself considered them canon and told Timothy Zahn to use them for reference before he wrote his first 3 novels.  

The game itself was fun wasn't too complicated as I recall to build a character and get going unlike a few other systems where building a character took nearly a whole day.  

Thanks again Matt
