West End Games
The greatest games publisher of all time. OF ALL TIME.
Divine gifts showered upon us by WEG include:
- Ghostbusters & Ghostbusters International.
- Star Wars RPG. Yes the good one.
- A handful of tie-ins, like Indy & Xena (that's two different games but if you think about it it should be one).
They gradually evolved their systems thinking from the 1970s to the millenium, and condensed their ideas as the d6 System and Masterbook, each used in different product lines. Masterbook is kind of a shame, it is so close to being awesome, it just needs a little more love.
