We are still at the beginning of the adventure. Holydays + online playing have made everything slower, but I will let you know how it goes! Smile

Cool.

The thing i never really liked about starfall, was them placing walex in, almost as a Maguffin, they Have to get out with.

The whole plot centers around Walex Blissex. There literally isn't much story without him. The reason for him going (with the Rebel team guarding him) was to reunite with his estranged daughter. There is a final confrontation with her near the end of the module. Walex and Lira are the only ones that could set the VSD to self-destruct this way, and when Walex realizes it then they realize they are setting a trap for the Rebel attack fleet. So instead of the PC group just fighting for their lives to get out, there are epic stakes involved for the Alliance. If you remove Walex, then you just have PCs trying to escape from a wrecked ship. It could still be a fun adventure, but it wouldn't be as meaningful without the story.

STARFALL

I ran star fall a long time ago in a city not too far away....

(it was in my last d6 campaign, early 2000s).

I left out all the stuff about the npc's - it was a pure - the party got captured mistakenly - (they were smugglers at this point, not rebels...) for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Before it could all get sorted out - the ship got damaged - then it became a race to see if they could make it off the ship while it was falling apart around them - almost like a high intensity posedien adventure thing - they were smuggling dangerous creatures in their ship - which of course, they got loose too - so beside the sinking ship, imperials and escape - they had carnivorous cargo to deal with.

the party loved it.

CAMPAIGN
Our last campaign was d20, and it went on haitus right before covicd for other reasons - and has since stopped.

Now, my group (with a few changes ....) is about to start a NEW campaign, with a heavily modified version of D6 in about two weeks.

It is a party of force users in a post-order 66 galaxy.
We are starting with a bunch of narrative mini-scenarios prior to the clone wars start, and ending with order 66, to help establish party backstory.
(think a bunch of star wars themed fiasco sessions).

I am really excited about our new game, as while my group has played star wars rpg in some sort of another for almost 20 years - this is the longest break we have had (about 2 years).

They can. See pakman's version. I was just saying that if you do take out Walex Blissex, you take out the whole story as published, and all you have left is a setting. A cool setting, sure, but the heart of "Starfall" is gone.

And the adventure's plot isn't just get Blissex off of a wrecked star destroyer. It is a race against time to save a Rebel fleet from a trap they don't know about.
