Saturday Workout Report ("That's No Moon, That's a Space Station" Edition)

Spent most of the day prepping for tonight's Star Wars RPG session, which was a d20 conversion of the old WEG module Scavenger Hunt. Since hantamouse's character is a Squib, and Scavenger Hunt is pretty much where the Squibs originated in the EU (on top of which it's a fairly lighthearted adventure intended for a low-level party), it seemed like a good way to revive the SW game. So far they've managed to hold their own quite well ... although being PCs they managed to take the scenario off in a direction the adventure writers never foresaw (particularly sending half the party into the Death Star fragment while the other half kept flying the shuttle around Paradise system) -- thus negating the prewritten script's assumption that L9-G8 would be chased all over the system by the pirate pinnace.

Without wanting to give away spoilers, the scene for which L9-G8 was specifically included in the adventure, got negated almost immediately -- this group of PCs is remarkably accomodating when told "Disarm and surrender!" I suspect that's because I've gone to great lengths to impress upon them that SWRPG d20 is considerably deadlier than D&D, particularly at 1st level. So when confronted with opposing force, they surrender. Of course, with tonight's session, they've all become 2nd level except for pholph's Jedi Guardian, since pholph was away and therefore his character was off on some other mission. Given that pholph is moving away in the not-too-distant future, I suspect that Will Dewry won't be making another appearance in the game as a PC.

Hmm ... what devious things could I do to him as an NPC? ;) Alas, that means going back to the search for one more player.

We ended the session with laurie_robey and jamesbarrett toting the "Holy of Holies" (or black hole of Holies as the case may be) around on the Death Star fragment and working on a decoy version to send either the pirates, the Ugors, or the Squibs after, while hantamouse and the NPC Squib Spilfer attempt to blast their way away from the pirate ship, having chased Teehl and her pair of goons off with the help of B-0-B. Paradise system is in uproar because the Holy of Holies has been turned off and all the junk is flying in all sorts of weird directions -- as are the Ugor battlewagons. Should be fun to see what happens next!

Oh yeah, the workout report!
