Jabba the Hutt operated outside the realm of the law, be it the crushing restrictions of the Empire or the more open rule employed by the Rebellion. He was a gangster, after all. He did his own thing, surrounding himself with his own type in order to rule his criminal empire. So, in Jabba’s Rea...

Sort of two ends of the spectrum for this batch of releases from Fantasy Flight Games. On one side, you’ve got starships flying around in a galaxy far, far away. On the other, you’ve got investigators searching through an old house. Well, both involve “hokey religions” anyway....
