Long term RPer here but new to SW. I am looking for good source material for RP. I have found wookiepedia but I tend to learn more through existing literature. So with that being said, can anyone recommend any good books out there? Furthermore, any books on the slave trade still in practice by the Empire i.e. types of slaves, attitudes of the slaves etc.

Thank you much.

Look up the NEW Essential Guide to... books. They have a plethora of information from the general (hyperspace speeds of ships) to the very specific (The way that Luke constructed his lightsaber).

google is my best friend when it comes to looking or references.

the star wars wiki is the best starting point then for all this star wars, then try checking out what others have written for their own RPs and fan fiction.

if you have any specific question that you can find an answer to ask away in a fan site
