If the opening crawl isn’t working, just hum the theme to yourself and read the transcript.
You can use the character creation program available on the Fantasy Flight Games forums.
IMPORTANT Go to “Options” (top row, third button from the right) and then click Deselect All (right under the list of splatbooks).
During character generation, you chose your BACKGROUND, your MOTIVATION , and perhaps most importantly your OBLIGATION.
Whatever backstory you want to write, make sure those three things are incorporated. If you don’t want to write a long backstory, just give me a sentence or two for each element explaining them.
Corvo Attano BACKGROUND: High and Mighty/Enemies and Antagonists ; MOTIVATION: Ambition, Local Politics; OBLIGATION; Betrayal
BACKGROUND: Corvo was once nobility, the Lord Protector and personal bodyguard of the queen of his independent home planet but the prime minister murdered the queen, turned over the planet to the Empire (and was made a Moff in return), and framed Corvo for the murder.
MOTIVATION: Ever the patriot, Corvo wants his home planet to be free again, and if he has to overthrow the whole damn empire to do it, so be it.
OBLIGATION: Corvo once trusted the prime minister as a mentor and friend and has been so deeply shaken by the betrayal that he would like nothing more than to sink a blade into the former prime minister’s throat (too bad he’s now a Grand Moff lol).
Further, you may choose one of the following two options:
- Give me an reason for why your character is working for Needa the Hutt, a crime lord on Nar Shaddaa OR
- Share an OBLIGATION (p39) with someone who chose option 1.
Say you can’t figure out what your colonist or explorer is doing on Nar Shaddaa working for Needa, and your bud is playing a smuggler who is working for Needa because Needa is protecting him from an angry former employer.
Then you can say that you are both (OBLIGATION: DEBT) in debt for the purchase of a ship you two shared which turned out to be faulty and was destroyed. Since both your names are on the loan you have to be here to help your smuggler bro pay down that debt before it gets you both killed.
Also, your OBLIGATION should not be to Needa. You can have an obligation (lower-case) to Needa but I would need you to have an independent Obligation (upper-case) too.
You start with a blaster, a comlink, and a small amount of spending cash. You’ll get more gear from the dead drop
I’ll need your character sheets by Friday, July 18th.
If you have a pdf (e.g. one spit out by that character creator), you can:
- Upload them to my dropbox. I invited you if you have an account. If you don’t have an account, steam message your email address to me and I’ll add you. Otherwise you can just
- Upload it to google drive, or
- Email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d prefer dropbox though.
Some Initial NPCs
Reelo is your contact within the Hutt Cartel. He is a fixer — Needa the Hutt or one of lieutenants will tell him what they want done, and Reelo’s job will be to gather intel, assemble a team, provide equipment, arrange transportation, and report the status of the jobs back to Needa. While you are on a job from him, Reelo will be the voice on the other side of your comlink.
Reelo has a smart mouth and a spice problem, but is tolerated because he is good at his job. There are rumors that he has some military experience, but Reelo doesn’t strike anyone as much of a soldier.
Needa is a prominent member of the Hutt Cartel who operates out of his casino, The Red Palacethe Red Light District in Nar Shaddaa. His criminal empire includes spice smuggling and distribution, slaving, loan-sharking, racketeering.
Here is a Nar Shaddaa image dump. These are from TOR, but nothing in Star Wars ever changes, so I’m ruling that it still pretty much looks like this.
