As noted in my last post, I am gearing up for a new Star Wars campaign using the WEG D6 system with a gestalt group combining members of my old New York High School gang, my New Jersey gang, and one new edition who is a friend of a NJ player. Right now there are only four players, plus myself, but we'll see. Others may join later.
I am astonished at how easy it's been to assemble this game. Even the creation of the campaign concept has gone smoothly. It's like magic. I suggested some ideas, people talked, one idea got mentioned both seriously, and jokingly a few times, and we all decided that if it caught our imaginations that fast then that's the winner.
Then characters - One fellow came up with a very basic idea, a Human Smuggler with a bigger, heavier freighter than the famous Millennium Falcon, and then he needed a co-pilot/partner - Who's that guy? What's his deal? Next thing you know we have an Ithorian Fixer, a social type of character who knows someone who can get you thing you want no matter where they go.

It's all falling into place so effortlessly.
I can't wait to see what the remaining characters are like, and what they decide to do in the setting. I have a general idea of the campaign's theme, and some of the plots I'm scattering among the stars.
More to come,
