  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Aaron Allston in 2005

Aaron Allston (December 8, 1960 – February 27, 2014) was an American science fiction and fantasy writer. He's written a bunch of novels in the Star Wars Expanded Universe, including a third of Legacy of the Force, a third of Fate of the Jedi, and about half of the X Wing Series, as well as tie-ins for Terminator and several roleplaying game settings. Allston also helped write the manual for the original Wing Commander, "Claw Marks," as well as the Dungeons and Dragons Rules Cyclopedia, which combined the rules of the first four of the Frank Mentzer BECMI boxed sets for Basic D&D into a single volume. He's also known for extensive work on the Champions role-playing game, including the award-winning supplement "Strike Force," earning him the allegedly-unwanted epithet "Champions Guru."

Among his own non-tie-in works, possibly the best-known is Doc Sidhe, which might be described in X Meets Y fashion as "Doc Savage with Elves".
