I can kvetch about the prequels or Jar-Jar Binks but the fact is when I hear a lightsaber noise I drool like any good fanboy.
Here are a few old Star Wars RPG ideas that have been rattling around in my head for ages:
That Hutt scored the holo-plans to the Imperial Galactic Bank and now you know when the next shipment is coming in. The risk is high but the pay-off is juicy, real juicy, junior.
Now the Hutt is getting a posse together, a bunch of galactic dogs from far, far away who can handle themselves if things get nasty. Sure there’ll be alot of people there during the day but you’ll have the manpower to handle it.
An A.W.O.L. Emperor’s Guard, a Wookie fresh from the slave-ships with a chip on his shoulder, a shell-shocked Rebel soldier who is still still hasn’t made his way to Rendez-vous Point after the whole Hoth fiasco and an old man with a lightsaber against the most fortified piece of real estate on Coruscant.
If there is a bright center to the universe, let’s shoot it with heavy blasters and be away on speeder-bikes before they know what hit ’em.
and of course…
Star Wars – Revenge of the Jedi
The SKYWALKER DYNASTY, whose dark will is enforced by the brutal nobles of the SITH COURT, has ruled the Galaxy for a Thousand Years of Tyranny.
The Sith Courtiers have grown CORUSCANT like a cyclopean technological flower, with five DEATH STAR satellites guarding the Dyson Fortress.
Even now the Clans CALRISSIAN and FETT have put aside their differences in order to put together two ancient DROIDS, who contain plans that could destroy Coruscant forever….
Some day I’d like to think that I’ll get to find out what happened to the Wookie Messiah and his friends.
