What is the Wiki's policy towards the RPG statistics featured in the West End Game sourcebooks? Like, for instance, it lists a character's abilities, skill level, and proficiency in various forms of combat or whatever. While we can't say in canon that Luke Skywalker has 9D (nine dice) in his starfighter piloting skill, I do think it stands to reason that we can use it as a means to say he was "better than", or more proficient than, say, Wedge, who had about 6D (or six dice) in starfighter piloting. Just an example, however. Does Wookieepedia recognize them as canon or no? --Danik Kreldin 00:01, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

  • I think they are canonical — but beware of instances where WEG stats may be contradicted by newer WOTC stats or in-story claims (like Luke saying "Wedge is a better pilot than I am.") —Silly Dan (talk) 00:07, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
    • I see. I was just reading one of the WEG books and was idly comparing Yoda's stats to Palpatine's to settle a long-standing debate, and was just wondering how those stats were viewed here ;) --Danik Kreldin 00:13, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
      • The best advice is to use them cautiously and judiciously. Though informative, they are evidence for debates, not solutions for them; and no real entity, be it ship or human, is effectively summed up by a stat block. jSarek 05:42, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
        • I would add that no RPG stats (besides perhaps speed in IU units) belong in articles' main sections. They could of course go on Talk pages though, or in BTS if necessary. Gonk (Gonk!) 12:29, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
