  1. Anything we should know about Star Frontiers before the con-mencement? I know how role-playing can get when everything has to be clarified 100 times.

  2. The only thing I know about the game I gathered from looking at the front the box. So to answer your question – no not really. However, if you want to look into a bit – you can download all the games and rules in PDF format here. After Wizard’s of the Coast took over TSR, Star Frontiers was one of the games they made available for free download and distribution on the internet. It was defiantly one of the more commendable things that Wizard’s of the Coast did.

  3. It was Cwell back in the 80’s, but its now Cswell for the year 2005. Just trying to make it a bit more hip for the younger generation.
