I have recently been looking through my boxed away RPG books and notes as I have time trying to find my old Star Wars - Fall of the Republic notes. I had so much planned and laid out for that campaign, and the player group I had had barely scratched the surface. I had been considering for some time editing it and arranging it to present in a PDF format for others to use or play through. This presents a number of unique problems though (I have an unusual GM format for SW, and I tend to design my adventures with sections pertinent to the player classes of my players). Most of the challenges could be overcome though.

I have not yet found most of the actual adventure notes, and some of what was planned was still only in outline and summary format (planning for 40-60+ game sessions in, and the group fell apart around 15 to 20). I did, however, find another set of notes for another group I had set in the same timeline, but only 1 adventure. Large sections of the adventure are missing, I do not know where the outlines and summaries for later adventures are (If I had made any), but it might be convertible. I had mostly forgotten this adventure and group because Character creation alone took 3 sessions, and just playing through the introduction too the setting and adventure took 2 (too much drinking and arguing). They never finished even the first adventure and thinking back I ended up ended the game and disbanding the group because of the stress of it. Still, in the notes I found I had some great ideas and might just well edit it and transcribe it.

This is no simple task because my old game notes and adventures for the post 2004 era were heavily written on 3x5 note pad sheets, and organized based on Events rather than acts and scenes to allow a more freestyle, sandbox flow of play (rather than trying to steer players). This allowed for events to happen out of order if needed, or for one plot chain of events to happen without necessarily following another. So all of this would not only need to be transcribed from dozens of handwritten note pages, but organized and indexed in a way to make it more readily usable. I would likely need to include a brief explanation of how my event based system works and the types of events (Fixed, Optional, Timed, Forced, Triggered, etc...).

Also of note, I refer to this as my Star Wars Legends because my this campaign takes place before Episode IV, and outside of/ignoring Episodes I-III mostly ( I use a few characters I like). These could be played in a more canon setting I suppose (or at least this one I found, my other campaign not so much). If I find and transcribe my other campaign I would include the write up of notes regarding significant differences to the official Episode I-III timeline, and a GM timeline I made up to show how I intended it to progress up to Battle of Yavin.

Would there even be interest in any of this?
Before deciding feel free to check out the truncated log for my Fall of the Republic campaign on these forums (sorry I can't remember how to link to threads).
