This game is based on the West End Games D6 roleplaying system. It takes place during the classic era of Star Wars IV-Star Wars VI.

Choose from one of the following templates. First come, first served. Once you choose a character template you will unlock their character sheet and stats. We are looking for a mininmum of 4 and a maximum of 6 players. Choose a name, gender, and age of your character. Once 2 or more players join you may establish a "connection" with another character such as a sibling, love interest, coworker, etc.

Here is the Star Wars RPG Rulebook for anyone who wants to download it.

Connections with other Characters:
*Friends
*Relatives
*Employees
*Joint ownership of ship
*Travelling companions
*Mentors
*Rivals
*Same homeworld
*Classmates
*Known by reputation
*Love

Characters are assiged ratings for six major attributes:
Stregth, Dexterity, Knowledge, Perception, Technical and Mechanical - They are assigned a rating that shows how good they are at that attribute, usually between 1D and 5D but it can be higher as well. 2D is average for a normal person and 3D is average for a heroic character. The D represents how many dice you roll on a skill check, for example if you have 3D on Strength you would roll 3 six sided dice and add them together.

There are also a multitude of skills under the various attributes that are more specific, such as Blaster, Dodge, Brawling, Starship Piloting, Con, Bargain, etc. You will have the opportunity to improve your character as time goes on with character points. You get force points that can make it easier to accomplish tasks and dark side points for doing evil acts and you could eventually turn to the dark side, losing control of your character permanantly. You can also die from being wounded in battle, starvation, etc.

Each skill roll has a "difficulty check" based on how difficult it is for what you are trying to do. 5 is very easy, 10 is easy, 15 is moderate, 20 is difficult, and 30 is heroic. If you are doing something of moderate difficulty, and have 3D skill rating, you would roll 3 six sided dice and try to beat 15 to be successfull.

Each player will have an initiative score during combat based on their perception. Highest initiative goes first and downward.

A combat round lasts 5 seconds. If you try and do more than one thing at a time, your rating for each skill goes down by 1D.

IDK. It looks cool, though.

Once 2 or more players join you may establish a "connection" with another character such as a sibling, love interest, coworker, etc.

That's why they would only be able to afford an armchair historian instead of a real one.

I think I'm going to have to veto the ewok bounty Hunter. Something else more realistic?
