Galaxy Guide 5: Return of the Jedi is a supplement to Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game written by Michael Stern and published by West End Games in 1990. From an in-universe perspective, it is written as a research project by a Rebel Alliance historian.

The guide features character profiles with RPG stats for main and some secondary characters from the film Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. This book created, for the first time, complete backgrounds for many characters appearing in the film.

A second edition of the sourcebook was released in 1995.

From the publisherEdit

On the desert world of Tatooine, Han Solo, one of the heroes of Yavin, is encased in carbonite in Jabba the Hutt's palace. Yoda, the last of the great Jedi Masters, nears death. The fate of the Rebellion lies in the balance as the new Death Star battle station comes to completion. Luke Skywalker must confront his father, the Lord Darth Vader. So begins Return of the Jedi, the climax of the greatest space fantasy of all time.

Here you can find background, personality sketches, and anecdotes of the villains and heroes, Humans and aliens, and monsters and droids appearing in Return of the Jedi. The book concludes with an adventure set on Endor just after the destruction of the second Death Star.
