What iconic ‘themes’ can make your campaign feel like the original trilogy Star Wars movies? Here are some things to consider including in your Star Wars adventures:

  1. Super weapons
  2. Monsters
  3. Family issues

  5. Fate of the Galaxy at stake
  6. The Force
  7. Stormtroopers
  8. Alien landscapes
  9. Epic space battles
  10. Light saber duels
  11. Droid sidekick humor
  12. Wild west type set pieces (Tatooine, Ord Mantell)
  13. Ruins of past civilizations set pieces (Yavin IV, gungan ruins, Rhen Var, Korriban)
  14. A sense of history behind some current events
  15. Exotic alien species and cultures.
  16. A wretched hive of scum and villainy
  17. A beloved space ship like the Millennium Falcon
  18. A powerful villain who has a chance at redemption story arc

    One things that I have been doing that my players love is integrating background characters and story ideas from the movies into my game. One adventure was to capture a Rancor and deliver it to Jabba’s palace…it had to get there some way, why not make it your PCs job?

    Another adventure idea that is currently underway is with Dr. Evanzan and Ponda Baba. Characters who have been seen and no longer matter to the overall arc.

    I even am playing with fire a bit by having the group hunted by Dengar.

    At the end of the day it makes my groupd kind of like the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern of the Star Wars universe.
