Post Mandelorian

I really, really am jonesing to do a Star Wars-ish game based in the setting of the Mandelorian. I am developing the idea, and will probably move to that when we are done with Weirder Stuff. I am setting up 3 different concepts. The players will choose which they would prefer to play.

In one, the PCs play effectuators of a local rebellion leader - not, or at least not yet, a part of the ineffectual New Republic - who is trying to stabilize the local area of space. In the second, the PCs play former effectuators of a local ex-Moff, who is attempting to stabilize and take over the local space area, who have turned against their former master, and are doing what good they can where they can. In the third, the PCs will play ex-Imperial prisoners who have found Mandelorian armor and are attempting to pass themselves off as a Mandelorian mercenary clan.

In all cases, the PCs are Force sensitives who were rounded up by the Empire and used as test subjects, and the local area will be the same. They will have an ancient ship, modified - or perhaps worn down would be more accurate - from stock to fit the needs of the Association, and constituting the bulk of their assets.

Elder Sibs, Continued

The breaking of the glass woke the security guard, who immediately started with his flashlight. One of the kids, forgetting that THEY were the ones breaking and entering, shouted "Hey! What're you doing!", which drew the attention of his flashlight. One of the other kids used a LUCK, and his light went out. As he was fumbling more batteries in, the boy who studied karate struck him. It was just a momentary stun, but enough for them to bind and gag him. They unloaded his shotgun and explored the lower level more, finding a giant laser with immense power cables, which was focused at a giant crystal protruding from the rock wall. There were two cameras mounted to record what happened, so they decided to look for videos.

They went upstairs, where there was another guard walking the beat in the dark. They rushed him and bound and gagged him as well. With the keys they had taken from the two watchmen, they were able to open the Director's office door, where they found a VCR player and monitor set up, but no tapes. They figured they were in the padlocked 4 drawer file cabinet, so one of the kids broke the glass and grabbed the fire axe, which set off the fire alarm. They were just off Uranium Road, a thoroughfare, and close to the new fire station, so they knew they had only minutes! The broke the padlock with the axes and ran off with the four drawers, escaping over the wall just as the fire trucks rolled up.

Elder Sibs Redux

The elder siblings decided that something was wrong, and that this whole thing needed looking into. They are high school kids, so they are almost adult. They slipped into the High Energy Physics research building through the hole in the wall, and by a guard, and found people in locked cells. The got the attention of one of them, and he broke the safety glass window on his door with a gesture.
